I have had the pleasure of owning and operating my business since 2000. Starting off in film has given me a unique perspective and knowledge on how light, emotion and composition can form together to create magic. Although, I shoot only in digital now, that same basic knowledge is transferred over to my craft today. Using the power of digital and the concept of film has established my career as a very well rounded and old soul style craftsmen. Read less

This is an honest review, no glorification here whatsoever:

Shanti is amazing to work with and highly professional. We have worked with her for over 13 years, beginning with our engagement photos all the way to a recent family photo shoot on the beach in June. You can see her portfolio online, so it's obvious that her craft is unquestionably excellent....but what you can't tell is how organized, professional, yet comfortable to work with.

- Shoots are on time, orderly and organized.

- Particular shots you asked for? She'll not only get those, but she'll sneak in some unexpected shots that capture your moments forever in time.

- Got kids? No sweat! Shanti is a pro with all ages. In fact, she just did an amazing job of capturing my 70 year old mother with her 8 grandchildren ranging for toddlers to teens...in the sand no less!!! Everyone looks amazing thanks to Shanti because she is so personable and easy to be with.

- Orders are filled promptly and as expected. You will not be disappointed with the quality of prints and framing done by Shanti.

If you're looking for off the charts customer service, unquestionable quality of photography and professionalism, look no farther.

I was referred to Shanti by a friend, so my fiancé and I decided to use her for our engagement pictures. Shanti had fast responses to both my emails and phone calls and did a great job of answering all of my questions. She was very flexible as we had to reschedule several times due to being rained out. In the end, we were lucky enough to be able to take our photos on the Half Moon Bay bluffs on a 75 degree day in February! Shanti was able to make us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera (even my fiancé who doesn't like having his picture taken) and gave us great direction for poses to ensure our photos turned out well. The finished photos are AMAZING and we were impressed with how well they turned out! We received the photos back very quickly and had full access to the digital versions so we could print and share them as we chose to. Needless to say, we've already booked Shanti for our upcoming wedding (August 2016) and can't wait to work with her again!

Shanti was the photographer of our dreams for our engagement pictures and our wedding! For our engagement pictures, I sent her a few ideas, but she really brought it to life and we couldn't have loved them more! She is SO on top of everything and made us feel SO comfortable throughout the 2 hour session. For our wedding, at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards in Sonoma, we couldn't have asked for a more professional, AMAZING photographer! Shanti and her team were top notch and I can't say enough about her! They came to where we were getting ready, were SO on point with the timeline and all the little details and followed my now husband and I around like a hawk! We had talked about various group pictures and different locations at the vineyards and she made sure that EVERYTHING was captured!

I cannot recommend Shanti and her team enough! We cannot wait to see all of our wedding day photos and to use her for other photos down the road! You're the BEST Shanti!

She is AMAZING! If you want to guarantee that at least one thing will go smoothly on your wedding, hire Shanti. She is fun, prompt, knows angles and spots, and makes the day enjoyable. She finds the little nuances that she knows a bride wants to remember on her wedding day. And unlike many horror stories I hear about some photographers taking months to get you your results, Shanti is fast. I would give her 10 stars if I could!!!
Now we just have to make it up there for anniversary pictures and baby pictures (we now live in SoCal). I almost do not want to trust life's big moments to anyone else.

I absolutely love Shanti! She does great work! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture my special day. We had her take our engagement photos which were amazing (even though it was not the sunniest day). We used those photos for our save the date, wedding program and seating chart. Our wedding photos were amazing, I could look at them over and over again. She has such a unique style. I enjoyed working with her and cannot wait to have her take our pictures once we decide to have a baby. I would recommend her for any photography needs!

We had just the best experience with Shanti that we could have hoped for. Shanti's photos are unbelievably beautiful and well-composed. She had an excellent balance between portraits of us and candid shots of our guests.

Throughout the planning process, she was incredibly attentive to our silly questions and very quick to get us our engagement photos and wedding photos. She's a pleasure to work with.

While Shanti's talents and professionalism are stellar, what really makes her stand out is her amazing personality. She was almost as excited as we were, which made us feel completely at ease when she was on the other side of the lens. We didn't really think about how much this matters, and I'm glad that we ended up on the right side of surprised!

I can't recommend Shanti's work enough. We were so pleased to have her as part of our special day.
