Amber was an absolute dream to work with. From the very first time we sat down to meet with her, she made the entire process very seemless and was very professional. She captured every moment of our wedding beautifully. Our wedding photos came out amazing - she is a very talented photographer. I will never use another photographer again and will refer her to anyone looking.
I couldn't have asked for a better photographer than Amber. She first photographed my sister-in-law's wedding a couple of years ago and after seeing how her pictures came out, I knew Amber was the perfect choice for mine. Amber has a real talent for candidly capturing the feel of the wedding, without making it cheesy. She was so calm and easy to work with that I felt totally at ease with her. I was able to completely relax and enjoy every moment of our big day because I had complete trust in Amber that she could capture the most beautiful pictures. And she didn't disappoint! Everyone who has seen our wedding pictures has raved about how the pictures look exactly as they remember the wedding to be. I honestly don't even remember seeing her after the formals and yet every important moment was beautifully documented. Thank you Amber!!!
Amber was very personable and easy to work. For a couple that is not use to being in front of a camera, she put us at ease.
Amber was willing to meet with us in advance and do a walk through of the venue. She provided guidance to us through out the process. Day of the wedding she came prepared and even brought me a parasol to make the lightening in the photos better.
Amber did the photography for our 9/9/12 wedding at Regatta Place in Newport, RI. She did an amazing job and people cannot stop raving about how beautiful our pictures came out! She was easy and fun to work with - always responsive and willing to answer questions. She worked with us to come up with a package that was within our budget. Her prices are reasonable for the quality compared to a lot of other photographers that we looked at before we chose her. She was punctual and arrived at our wedding on time with no issues. After the wedding, she did our thank you cards relatively quickly so we could get them out to our guests as soon as possible. The cards came out so nice - the quality of the cards were top notch. She was also able to get our wedding featured on a wedding blog. She also was able to get us our wedding pictures before she promised that she would. I cannot say enough good things about Amber, the list goes on and on. I've recommended her to several other brides, and will continue to recommend her.
I honestly do not even know where to begin. Amber has become one of my most favorite people in the world. She is amazingly talented and creative, but also one of the sweetest and kindest people I've met. She really listened to what we wanted, and I truly feel that she took the time to get to know us as a couple, and therefore our wedding photos were exactly US. She has such an eye for candid moments, and I cannot even begin to say how happy I was with all the candids she captured. Little moments that I don't even remember happening until I look at a picture of it, melt my heart. Going through our photos, I kept saying over and over how much she captured personalities, not only ours, but of our bridal party and family and friends. Her turnaround time in getting our photos to us was extremely fast - especially given the amount of work she has! She was also very speedy at her response time to the hundreds of emails I'm sure I sent her :) My husband and I truly feel blessed that we had the day that we did, but we know it would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our vendors, especially Amber. I am sad our wedding is over because now I have no upcoming events for Amber to photograph! I would recommend her a million times over to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. She really is the best :) Amber, thank you thank you for everything.
Vendor response to review
You are SO very welcome! Thank you Gentel!!
Amber is an AMAZING, organized, prompt, professional, helpful, and CREATIVE photographer! She exceeded my expectations on my wedding day and I can't thank her enough! My guests can't stop talking about how awesome the photos are, and now I've found out that it is incredibly hard to pick out some for myself. I just love them all way too much! I have already recommended Amber and will continue to do so. The memories her photos capture really will last forever!
Amber and Josh are amazing wedding photographers! Starting with all our email conversations prior to the wedding, Amber was friendly, patient and responsive. On our wedding day, it was amazing to have two photographers available to capture all the photos we wanted. Both Amber and Josh were fun, professional, and also managed to work in “stealth mode”- capturing all these amazing moments when we didn’t even realize they were around! A few weeks after our wedding, we received all our beautiful photos, and are SOO happy with how they all turned out. The photos are stunning- all the small details that help to recreate our whole day have been amazing for us to look at and re-live our special day. I highly recommend Forever Candid for wedding photography!! Amber and Josh, thank you so much for capturing our special day and providing us with these beautiful and artistic photos.
We loved having Amber from Forevercandid photograph our wedding! We ended up with amazing shots and everyone at the wedding commented on how hard Amber and her second shooter appeared to be working...they never stopped moving! We had sneak peak shots within two days and access to all of our photos in just a few weeks! I highly recommend Forevercandid photography for your wedding!!
Amber was wonderful to work with. She kept track of everything and sent me some helpful tips up in the days leading up to the wedding which was VERY much appreciated as my mind was in a million different places. I felt very comfortable dealing with her through the whole process. The day of the wedding both her and her assistant blended in with what was going on, at times (getting ready) I actually forgot they were there! They were so nice and patient with my crazy family during formals and again at the reception. The picture quality is stunning, everyone's told me they can't believe how wonderful my pictures came out! I am above and beyond happy with my choice and would highly recommend Forevercandid to anyone who needed a photographer!
Working with Amber at Forevercandid was a breeze and the photos were phenomenal!!! Her style is unique, timeless and elegant. Our family and friends went crazy over the photos. She was very quick getting the photos back to us, which was also quite fantastic. I would highly recommend Amber and Forevercandid.
What can I say about Amber that won't qualify as a novel? Photography is one of those things, for me, that is crucial to a successful wedding. After all, once the day is over and done, all you have left is memories and photos, and what with the speed of the day, those memories are hard to hold onto. Amber and her second shooter Josh, gave us the most amazing representation of our day, I honestly could not have asked for better photos. Every time I look at them, I still get goosebumps. We researched so many photographers, contacted at least a dozen, met with a handful, but knew all along that Amber had exactly what we were looking for. She has an artistic eye that no amount of photography school can teach you. She captured everything we wanted, and then some. She also did our engagement photos, which I was equally impressed with. And I can tell you right now, she will be my go-to for maternity/baby pictures when the time comes. She was recommended to me by a friend, my hair dresser actually, with whom you always put your utmost trust in ;-). Her photos are so amazing that an engaged acquaintance who, upon seeing my wedding photos, is actually CANCELING her current chosen photographer in favor of switching to Amber. That says everything right there. Thanks again Amber, and I look forward to many more sessions with you!
Amber from Forever Candid shot my wedding a couple of weeks ago and she was wonderful! She was organized while still being artistic and professional while still having a great sense of humor. She wasn't obtrusive during the ceremony or reception (one of my personal pet peeves with most wedding photographers). Everyone says the pictures are one of the most stressful parts of the wedding day but we had fun doing them. She has original, fun ideas instead of the same old wedding pics that everyone else has. Her work is gorgeous and she even gave us a "sneak peek" at a couple of our pictures the NEXT DAY! Highly recommended!
During my search for a wedding photographer, someone referred me to Amber Shomo with Forevercandid Photography. After meeting her for a coffee and seeing samples of her work online, I know she would be the perfect photographer for my wedding. In late July, we met up with Amber for our engagement session in the North End. The photos were beautiful, we framed them and displayed three of them at our wedding reception. On our wedding day, Amber photographed our ceremony and reception and the photos were perfect, creative and really captured the day and all of its special moments. She really paid attention to all of the small wedding details, which I appreciated. Not only is Amber very talented, she was really easy to work with - I hardly even knew she was there! Communication prior to the wedding was great - she was quick to return a call or respond to an email. I highly recommend Amber and Forevercandid Photography
I found Amber at the last minute after having fired our first photographer who didn't deliver the quality of photos we were looking for. After seeing Amber's website - there was no doubt in my mind that she would deliver the kind of pictures we wanted. She is super professional and is quick to respond to emails as well.
Amber shot our engagement pictures on a Saturday and we had all of the proofs by Monday afternoon! Our engagement photos came out AMAZING. These weren't just basic photos, these were fully edited works of art. I even blew one of them up into a canvas and it is now a piece of artwork on our living room wall. :)
Our wedding was on 9/10/11, and we received our proofs just over a month later. Amber is super fast compared to most photographers out there in getting you your proofs. I cannot say enough good things about these pictures... They are GORGEOUS. There are so many that I love, it's going to be really hard to choose which ones to put in the album.
I truly feel blessed to have had things work out the way they did, and to have found Amber. These are pictures that we will look back on for the rest of our lives, and quality DOES matter. Amber was the perfect choice for capturing these moments.
I first met Amber from forever candid (before I was engaged) at my brother's wedding. She was right in the Limo with us capturing all the moments and even when the Limo broke down due to extreme heat she made the best of it by taking my brother and his wife to the side and taking some really great fun pics. I liked her style and personality so much that I asked her if she would do my wedding pictures someday :)...two months later i got engaged and the next day I bought my dress and emailed Amber :)...Amber is awesome! when we Just had our engagement session with her she did a great job!! I really appreciated her flexibility especially with our crazy new england weather. During the session she made us feel comfortable and let us just be ourselves and do our thing...but thankfully gave us guidance when we needed it. When looking at the proofs i didn't feel like i was just looking at pictures i was remembering and looking at a moment. I Knew the wedding pictures wouldl be amazing and I was confident she wouldl be able to capture our Wedding day to perfection...........And of course she did. Once again she was AMAZING. Every single person who looked at my pictures keeps saying how awesome they are. And when we were taking wedding pictures the sun was in our eyes and it didn't feel like we spent enough time taking them. But sure enough they came out amazing I didn't even remember her taking half of out wedding party pictures lol. We have so many and my husband and i were like "how did she do it?" lol....Anyway Amber is the best you will be so happy with her. She is super nice and creative and she does the best job ever!!! I will never use any other photographer!!...Thanks Amber you are the best!
My husband and I absolutely despise having our pictures taken. My natural inclination is to stick out my tongue or make a stupid face. We were worried about having a photographer in our face for 8 hours. Immediately after meeting Amber, we knew that she was absolutely the right choice for us. We told her we had no vision, no direction, no... anything, really. Not a problem, she says.
The shots came out great and the turnaround time was a lot faster than most of my friends that got married this summer. Everything far exceeded our expectations. One thing that was very important to my husband was giving his grandmother the opportunity to get a photo with her 10 children, since it was the first time they'd all been in the same room in quite a long time. Amber got that photo for us, but even more importantly, she got one of his grandmother as the 10 were assembling and she was absolutely beaming. It's one of the most amazing pictures in the set. Amber's got an eye for something special and we are SO glad that we went with her.
And, not for nothing, her prices are SOOOO reasonable!!
My best friend just got engaged and she wants to use Amber for their photography. I'm looking forward to working w/ her again!
Amber's skill amazed me beginning with our engagement session! She was able to take a unique space and feature us in a special way, capturing each of our styles. On the wedding day she remained calm and in control and I completely trusted her ability to delivery quality photos (which she did!). I'm so happy with all of our pictures and I just have too many favorites! Thank you for helping us capture our most important day!
Amber was absolutely amazing. She was flexible, fun, had great ideas and very nice. Before our wedding I looked at so many wedding albums and none of them even compared to what Amber did for us. Amber was our best vendor and we can't say enough good things about her.
We were so happy with our photos and Amber made everything very easy for us on our wedding day. She has a real talent for catching the most joyous moments and the emotions of the day.
Amber was absolutely fantastic to work with! As a girl who takes very awkward pictures (c'mon, who really enjoys being out in the spotlight?).. Amber somehow made me look STUNNING! I still can't believe it.
She has a very keen eye for details, is easy going and was able to capture every moment of our wedding. One thing I have to mention that I truly appreciated, is that she somehow captured every essence of our guests' personalities in every single photo. We found ourselves going photo by photo saying "That is absolutely how X laughs!" "That is exactly how my brothers kid around!"
We truly LOVE our photos. We gave her no true direction, but she was able to surprise us with a great balance of formals and candids. We appreciated that she was "hidden" amongst the guests, which made us feel more at ease that we didn't have a big honkin' camera stalking us. :) Her turn around time for photos was incredible as well. My parents were thrilled to see the results so quickly! I cannot speak more highly of Amber. She's fantastic at what she does and we're happy that we went with her.
Amber from Forevercandid photographed my wedding in May of 2011 as well as my engagement photos during the summer of 2010. She was extremely professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. Every intimate moment of my wedding was captured exactly as how I envisioned. Her creativity, passion and quality of work truly puts her ahead of others in the field and I would recommend her to all of my family, friends and any bride out there looking for an outstanding wedding photographer.
We really enjoyed working with Forever Candid Photography. Amber is a very talented photographer who is great to work with. She can make a great picture out of any scenery and in any kind of weather. Our wedding was very cold and windy and the sun was shining very brightly. Amber was able to capture so many great photos despite the outside conditions. She has a very easy going personality which takes away some of the "wedding stress". She goes out of her way to accommodate any special requests for photos. She is very punctual and is very quick on responding to any phone calls or emails. She also did an engagement session for us. She traveled more than expected to take shoot the session at a place that had sentimental value to us. Overall, we are very satisfied with our decision for Forever Candid Photography as our photography vendor. Amber did such a great job on both the engagement photos and the wedding photos, and she did it all at such a reasonable price. We have already recommended her to several friends and engaged couples.
Amber was the only photographer I looked at when looking for a photographer for my wedding. She had done a photo shoot for me before and after I got our engagement pictures back it was clear that she was the right choice! Her pictures are amazing and her creativity made my wedding photos one of a kind. If you are looking for a photographer who will work with you Be give you creative pictures then Amber is the right photographer for you.
Amber is one of a kind. My husband and I were looking for bright, candid photos that captured the true personalities of our wedding renewal ceremony guests and man, did she deliver! Amber's fresh eye is apparent in the different angles and perspectives that capture unique moments. My husband and I were so comfortable in her laid-back presence that it was easy to almost forget she was there. It's this calm, yet focused talent that Amber brings to her images. She was punctual, direct when she needed to be, light and fun when it was called for and in all, a wonderful person to be around! I would recommend her wholeheartedly.
Amber was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Everything we wanted from our wedding in terms of photography was delivered. She was slick and professional, and managed to get great shots from every angle without being intrusive.
Even when we decided that it was too windy for the official shots and asked her to come to a different venue at a moment's notice, she obliged without any complaint. To top it all off, the traditional boring wedding shots that most people dread took no more than 5 minutes, and most importantly, looked AMAZING!
The only downside is that we live in Scotland and so can't recommend Amber to any of our friends over here; however if she is in your neck of the woods then get her booked in - you won't be disappointed!
Forever Candid was our first choice for wedding photography! Amber was completely professional. She had an eye for great and creative indoor shots. She was able to capture many intimate photos without us even knowing. Without a doubt would recommend her to everyone I know.
Amber is an amazing photographer, along with associates. She captures each and every special moment with a quick click of her camera. You have so many spectacular pictures to choose from, you'll what them all. When you look back at your pictures you can relive that moment in time.
Amber is really great to work with, and she provided amazing memories of our special day. We were looking for a more "artistic" wedding album (cool angles and great action shots), and she really came through! We were amazed at her ability to get everything that was happening; it seemed she could be in 5 places at the same time!
Excellent service - very professional. The shots were so beautiful, it was difficult to pick a favorite photo. I would recommend Amber to anyone in the area!
Professional, easy to deal with, and absolutely beautiful photographs. I always recommend Forever Candid when friends or family are looking for a photographer.
I hired Forevercandid Photography for my own wedding! Amber's work is gorgeous and she was a pleasure to work with!
Terrific photographer! She took amazing shots of Lindsay's wedding and did not miss one amazing opportunity to document the day perfectly! Also, works extremely well with vendors, very pleasant and easy to talk to. Definitely a wise choice for a photographer!
Amber and team at Forevercandid Photography do amazing work! Their creative eye puts them in the top category for wedding and event photographers - check out their work and make sure to contact them about your wedding. It is definitely worth your time!
I recommend this company
Amber was excellent to work with! Her photographs are beautiful and I highly recommend her.
We worked with Amber of Forever Candid Photography recently and were impressed by her professionalism, creativity and general friendliness. Her warm hospitable personality made everyone feel comfortable and the photographs she produced after the event were simply fabulous. We hope to work with her again!
For an excellent photographer with a truly artistic eye I highly recommend Amber Shomo from Forevercandid.

Yes. I will never contract your wedding to another photographer.
What type of equipment do you use?
I use professional Canon cameras, flashes, and accessories. I also have full studio lighting available for when extra light is needed for formals.
Do you use an assistant? Is there an extra charge for this?
Having a second photographer/assistant is invaluable. I always have one, and there is no extra charge.
Will there be backup equipment available? And what happens if you are ill?
Yes, I have backup equipment. In the event of major illness, there will be another photographer of comparable style and talent.
Can other people take photos while you are taking photos?
In order to give you the very best results, it is my preference that no one take pictures while I am.
Should your event last longer than scheduled, will you stay? Extra charge?
If your day lasts longer than expected and you'd like me to stay, it's not problem. We will negotiate a "stay late rate" ahead of time.
How many photos come in each package?
You will receive between 300-700 online proofs. The amount of high-resolution photos is determined by the package you choose.
What types of photos will be taken?
Your final result will be a mix of color and black & white photos. I also do "partial color" photos and other special affects when appropriate.
Will they accept of list from you, for specific photos to be taken?
What attire will they and their assistants wear?
Professional attire only. We keep it neutral, usually all black.
How long after the event will the proofs be ready?
I pride myself in quick turn around. Your photos are usually ready within 2-3 weeks.
What type and how much assistance will they provide in planning your album?
I design your album based on your favorite photos, what I know will look great, and the colors you used in your wedding. All albums are approved by you, and changed if necessary before submitted for printing. It's a very simple process.
Will they give you the negatives or what is the charge?
Digital files are specific to package chosen. High-resolution files of your whole wedding are available.
If you love the look of certain pictures, take note of at what time of day they were taken! Having a wedding during the morning and/or afternoon, will look very different than a wedding that starts at 4pm. Just something to keep in mind :)
