We hired Clint Russell through Shawn Van Daele after seeing how beautiful their web site photos were in August 2016 for my wedding. They told us we could pay in full to save a 10% discount, so we paid in full, roughly $3,000. Eventually, we were in contact with over 10 people suggesting they are scam artists, that you can’t trust them to show up to your wedding, that they were not paying people hired by them and that they just disappear and you will not get a response from them. We were very conflicted as we loved their photos but decided we did not want to spend from then until the wedding worried about whether these guys would show up and then wait another 3 to 4 months wondering if they would produce the photographs. Per our contract, we cancelled their services with an understanding that we were going to lose 20% of the deposit. I politely asked them to cancel, and after a couple of weeks of silence received agreement that they owed us 80% and would get it to us. They even suggested at that time, that there was no need to worry, and why are we making repeated requests. After that, and for the next 4 months, they completely disappeared. Since then, we have spoken to numerous people who cannot get a hold of them and are waiting for refunds on services that Shawn and Clint never provided. We have also watched their comments on Facebook disappear that are warning new brides not to book through them. After about 4 months of what started off as polite communication (with zero response), eventually led to total frustration. We ended up suing them in small claims court. As a couple starting a new chapter in our lives and going through something so exciting and wonderful as a wedding, it has been absolutely heartbreaking that these two men have put us through so much grief for no apparent reason whatsoever. Weddings are expensive and stressful enough without these types of added pressures. Before you decide to use them you may wish to look at their rating on the BBB.

Renaissance and Clint were so amazing through the entire process. They truly know what they are doing and their enthusiasm for what they do is very apparent. I loved every minute of working with them and the pictures are unbelievable!

I absolutely LOVED working with Renaissance! They were very accommodating from the very start, setting us up with a photographer to meet even before we signed a contract. They made sure to assign a photographer that would make us feel comfortable (as my husband is a little camera shy) and they paired us with the perfect photographer. Kimon, our main shooter made the engagement shoot SO easy, had both of us laughing and turned around some insanely gorgeous photos. We just had our wedding and it knocked it out of the park again - our whole wedding party loved him and we are counting down the days until we see our photos. Shawn was very helpful as well setting everything up for us and even during busy season he was good at getting back to me to answer all my questions. I wouldn't hesitate to book them again for family photos, baby photos, anniversary photos - the works.

Shawn and his team at Renaissance are absolutely amazing! We worked with Kimon for our engagement session and Shawn and Christine on our wedding day. They were all so friendly and professional! My husband and I are a bit camera shy, but Kimon really helped us get comfortable with the camera so our shots looked so natural. Really helped to prep us for the big day too! Our engagement photos were beautiful and from the few teaser photos we got from our wedding already, we couldn't be anymore happier! Can't wait to see the rest! Each image is retouched so beautifully, you can tell that they really take the time to perfect every image. They're absolutely wonderful to work with and quick to respond with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you so much for all of your hard work to make our wedding and engagement so memorable. You guys rock!!

Renaissance studio photographer, Shawn Van Daele, was our primary photographer. Shawn is great! We loved the look of the photos from the Renaissance team (vintage-romantic-whimsical) but Shawn's in particular. He is calm and so fun and easy to work with. He put us at ease for our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. He and our second photographer, Christina Boni, were so patient and accommodating on our wedding. We loved our engagement shoot and the teasers from our wedding so far. We can't wait for the rest! We also ordered a photo album and two albums for our parents.

We had such a wonderful experience with the Renaissance crew. My husband and I are not "naturals" behind the camera but they made us feel so comfortable taking photos. They were kind, professional and not to mention amazing at what they do.

The pictures were beautiful! Clint, the owner, was our photographer and he knew exactly what would look good. He worked fast and we were able to get almost all of the shots we wanted, even though we were running quite late. The only issue we had with them was that they almost sent us someone else to shoot our wedding. There was a lot of traffic due to a highway closure on my wedding date, and about an hour prior to his expected arrival, Clint called me to say he was going to send someone (who didn't currently work for his company, but had worked with them before). He suggested that this person would shoot my entire wedding, and I wasn't happy about that because I hired the studio due to their style of photography, and I wasn't familiar with the replacement's style. My wedding planner had to call him and persuade him to still come and just take over whenever he got there. At the end of the day, Clint ended up showing up on time after all, and from there it all went smoothly. I just wished this situation was handled better, and that we didn't have to "convince" him to still try and come, instead of him just going back home as he suggested. The quality of their work was absolutely stunning, so I would consider booking with them again.
