“I was 100% satisfied with Shanti during the process, up to the wedding day, then after. The difference about Shanti, from other photographers we met with was that she is very personable. Shanti took great pride in the end product. She was concentrated on making sure that everything was perfect. You can tell that Shanti is in this business for the art of photography. Her end product is remarkable!”
“I absolutely recommend her! She is a top pro and can handle any wedding situation. She is very pleasant and listens and understands her clients. She produces the finest photos with a deep understanding of beautiful light. Shanti has unlimited energy to go the extra mile for the perfect photos.”
“Shanti seems to be one of the few photographers that still works with true film (not just digital) and you could clearly see that in her work. Our most important quality we were looking for was how well the photographer took photos at the beach and Shanti’s beachside photos were fantastic, so it was a perfect fit.”
“She was such a joy to work with she made me that much more excited for the wedding and I never once questioned her ability or talent. I knew the pictures would be amazing! She blended in with the guests beautifully; never pushy or forceful in getting the pictures she wanted. She was quick, efficient and flawless, just like her pictures.”
“Shanti is absolutely incredible. Her personality, her connection with her clients and her beautiful images are what is impressive about her. From the first point of contact through the day of the wedding and beyond, she was wonderful to work with. Talking with her I felt as if I had known her for a very long time.”
