Shawn Black was amazing at our wedding! The shots he took came out great and he knew exactly how to capture the perfect lighting of the different times of the day. He not only took fabulous pictures of the entire day but he also gave great advice for everything throughout the day to make it go smoothly! I did not even need to go to my bridal emergency kit with the extra safety pins for my bustle of my dress, Shawn had everything right with him so it didn't take time away getting all of that stuff. Shawn is the best photographer and we would highly recommend him for any event. He also has a great personality. Myself, my husband, and my entire bridal party consider him as a friend.

Amazing photographer! Looking at the pictures makes my husband and I relive the moment as if it was yesterday, more than watching our wedding video. He was so attentive to both our needs and everyone loved when my bustle broke how he stepped in with his toolbox and fixed it for me! I would recommend Shawn Black to anyone. He captured the " real us" and I couldn't be happier! Thanks Shawn the Hollands love you and what you did for us!!!

Where do I begin? SHAWN BLACK IS AMAZING! He is seriously the BEST photographer a bride and groom could hope for! When we first met with Shawn he was so easy to talk to and had great ideas! We talked for over two hours and we knew that he was our photographer! My husband was skeptical about an engagement session, but when we arrived Shawn made the whole experience SO fun! They talked sports and he made us laugh. I felt like we were best friends with him by the end of that day! The best part was that my husband told me that he had FUN and ENJOYED the experience! During our final meeting with Shawn he told us everything we needed to know for the day of, He told my husband to use extra shaving cream and a new blade, he told us to make sure to drink lots of water, to eat, and to most importantly enjoy every moment. Shawn is not just a photographer he also acts as a coordinator! The day of our wedding, as every bride I was beyond excited and not thinking of everything, Shawn literally thought of EVERYTHING! It was a little windy and when I got out of the car my veil came out...Shawn said "don't panic I have bobby pins, blonde ones" Also my beautiful dyed HOT PINK wedding shoes got water spilled on them and were dripping all over my hands, BUT no worries Shawn had a wedding kit full of everything needed and saved the day by drying my shoes and getting the pink off my hands. And most importantly when my zipper on my dress was stuck, and my girls were slightly panicked....Shawn stepped in and saved the day! All night at our wedding people said to us "WOW your photographer is AMAZING!" They had not even seen our photos yet they were just judging by his professionalism and watching him work around us. Shawn Black is by far one of the best things we spent our money on, he is worth it I can promise you that!!!! I recommend him with my highest regard and hope that every bride and groom get to experience what we did!

From the first meeting to after we received our final pictures, Shawn was professional, a perfectionist and helpful! We planned our wedding in a little less than 2 months and after seeing the beautiful pictures that Shawn gave my cousin, I knew he would be a key part of being able to pull it off as flawless as possible. Not once was I ever worried that the pictures would turn out less than perfect and Shawn exceeded my expectations. For many brides, the pictures are very important and I was no exception. Shawn even went so far as to pass on helpful wedding day tips that he has picked up along the way on what to do or not do leading up to and on the wedding day. He wore many hats and wore them well - wedding planner, wrangler, photographer and artist. I will cherish his photo's for the rest of my life!

We still can't believe our luck in finding Shawn! Not only is he truly the best and most artistic wedding photographer one could ever find (I work in the visual & media art field) but he was also kind and generous and professional. On top of being an amazing photographer, Shawn also gave my husband and me advice on how to plan our wedding since we were pretty clueless. So in the end he was our wedding photographer cum wedding planner. :)

Once I saw the images for the photos I thought it would not get any better than having the images, but no, the photo album completely blew me away! If that was not the most amazing wedding photo album, I'm not sure what is! From the presentation to the printing and paper quality to the most spectacular cover, the album screams "art and perfection." It adds a nice exclamation point to our wonderful wedding.

Shawn is a great find! We would not go to any other photographer for any occasions that need photography!

To say it simply, Shawn exceeded every expectation we ever had. From our first conversation, he was professional, responsive and you could tell he was knowledgeable in what he is doing. The day we met Shawn he made it clear he would be far more than our photographer and he was right. He is now a friend to both my husband and I. He was there to calm my nerves, make sure our wedding day went perfectly and to capture every cherished moment he could. I cannot recommend him enough. His work is flawless and magical, he has a wonderful personality and truly cares about his clients and what he does. He is the best of the best and will make your special day much more than you expect.

I cannot say enough good things about Shawn. I would recommend him over and over to anyone getting married. He was especially helpful the day of my wedding, helping a bridesmaid with a broken dress, and helping me with my corset back on my gown! (He made it fit even better than the bridal shop did!) I told Shawn that it was important that we not make my guest wait at the reception, he was super quick and efficient in getting all of the family and important pictures done on time! Shawn has a really great personality, and his work is incredible!! Hire him today!!! :)
