Scott is an amazing photographer and a joy to work with. He makes you feel so comfortable doing something that has the potential to feel so awkward -posing and showing a ton of PDA. Scott stays in the background unless he needs a shot up close -and he always gets the shot he wants. They all look natural, even if he had to coach my now husband and I during the shoot -which we really appreciated. There's not much worse then when you hire a photographer who stays quiet and then when you get the pictures weeks later there is something little wrong with all your pictures that could have been easily fixed with some coaching -like a hair in your face. When we did group/family shots we made sure that everyone looked good, without being bossy. He was so much fun, and truly worked his butt off the entire wedding day. We spent at least 5 hours shooting after the ceremony because we had so much family, and he never even came close to complaining -even when we were technically done and I realised I wanted a couple more shots. We also asked for a second photographer, and Sam, the gentleman Scott had help him, was just as good. I am confident we chose the best we could have, and for a very competitive price. Did I mention we had them from 8 am to 1am? For a set price too, none of this one fee for 6 hours and double the base price for the rest of the night!

Scott has photographed 3 weddings in my family and in every instance the experience was great. Scott is a true professional, and we had no hesitation booking him for an engagement shoot as well as the wedding day shoot.

Scott has a great eye - and I do not agree with the review below which mentions lackluster composition. Scott captures exactly what a bride and groom ask him to, and adds his own little touches and perspectives on the day. In addition to the "required shots", Scott does an excellent job blending into the scenery and getting amazing candid photos.

We would, and DO, recommend Scott to everyone.

Scott photographed our wedding and our experience with him was absolutely outstanding. Scott was so dedicated and attentive - he was with us for every moment of the day (and party at night) and made sure he didn't miss a thing. He was also super easy to work with and very creative. We could really tell that he was passionate about his photography, and about providing us with the most beautiful and intimate images to remember our day by. The photographs that Scott delivered really blew us away - we love how candid the shots are and how well he captured all of the different emotions and aspects of our wedding. We highly recommend his services!

Scott was absolutely fantastic. My husband and I cannot say enough about his professionalism and his quality of work. We hired Scott in May to photograph our wedding and would do it again in an instant. He was punctual, friendly, flexible and very discreet - at times you could forget he was even there! Perhaps more importantly, his photos were some of the best I've seen when compared to other photographers. He was creative, innovative and captured the day perfectly. If you have the opportunity to have Scott photograph a special event in your life, take it!

Having beautiful and memorable photos was very important to me. I thought I had made the right decision having Scott photography my wedding. After comparing the quality of my photos to several of my friends who got married at the same time, I can now say that I wish I had gone with another photographer. He didn't miss any key moments, but missed some cute unexpected things that happened on the spur of the moment. Also, some of the composition is not very interesting (ie. all my family portraits are identical, no close-ups, only one shot delivered of each) and some photos were blurry. I also wish that he had spent more time doing photos with my wedding party and of the bride and groom. I only have 2 photos of the wedding party and just a handful of the bride and groom.
After I found out how much some of my friends paid for far superior photos, I realized that Scott is charging way too much for what he delivers. Overall I am disappointed with my photos.

We met Scott during our engagement photo session and were taken aback by the quality of the photos we received so we decided to hire him for our wedding day. Scott was excellent in all respects. He was professional, talented, flexible, and funny! He was happy to not only work with our wishes but he offered his own creativity and for that we are so ever grateful.

In our opinion, Scott went over and above what our contract stated, he arrived when we woke up in the morning and stayed until the very end of the evening. He was easy to get along with and felt like he was a part of our family.

We were especially impressed at how unique our photos were. We hadn't anticipated that so much personality could be transferred into each image, he certainly captured each moment and when we look at our pictures it takes us right back to our wedding day.

We are grateful for the memories that Scott was able to capture for us. All in all it was a fabulous experience working with Scott - we miss him!

Scott was a dream to work with! He was with us from the very beginning of the day, right to the very end of the night. Everyone who sees our photos comments on how beautiful they are, and the rich story they tell of the day.

His sense of humour and easy going nature allowed Scott to be a presence when necessary (fleeting moments of freaking out were quickly cured by his wise words and a joke), and invisible when the occasion called for it (the ceremony), but he never missed a moment.

Even now, 2 and a half years later, I am so thankful that we hired Scott to capture our wedding. I look at the photos often, and I feel confident knowing that his classic photojournalism take on wedding photography results in timeless photos that won't look dated when other photography trends will have come and gone.

His work speaks for itself: Scott needs no fancy filters or crazy Photoshopping--he knows how to take a fabulous photo, and how to be a great addition to any wedding. We will definitely be hiring Scott again for future occasions. I can't say enough good things about his work.

Our wedding was a bit unique in that we only had 18 guests. It was a must for us that our photographer not only capture the feeling of the day, so that we could share it with all those who were not at our wedding - but also that they would fit in with such a small group - at the same time not sticking out like a sore thumb. Scott absolutely exceeded every one of our expectations. From the moment we met him we knew he would be the perfect person to photograph our wedding. Scott had an amazing chameleon effect on the day of the wedding. All of my guests told me that they forgot he was there - forgot he was there? With only 18 people? That is truly amazing. He was extremely charming and funny and even saved the wedding music by fixing my ipod when it crashed. Talk about going above and beyond! We couldn't have been happier with our pictures and truly feel we found a photographer that is one in a million. With sharing such a private and special day Scott truly felt like a friend by the end of us working with him. TIP: I would absolutely recommend getting engagement shots done with Scott. My husband and I are not that comfortable in front of a camera and had a lot less anxiety on our wedding day knowing Scott's style and what he expected - plus we got some absolutely INCREDIBLE engagement shots.
