Shane!
We are so blown away by these photos! Thank you so much, I love all of them. We both love the panoramic one with the mountains and the water in the background against the stone wall. So cool!
Anthony and I will be in touch a little bit closer to the big day to discuss wedding photo logistics and some photo requests and what not.
Thank you again for the engagement photos! Great job!

Shane stands out among the many talented photographers in Seattle – he was the only photographer we met who “got” us–and what we were looking for–from the very beginning. Shane proved to be the perfect fit for our style and delivered exactly what we were looking for in our wedding photos. In short, he was an excellent choice.
We were looking for someone to capture the event with documentary-style photographs. We wanted moments that actually happened, not posed portraits. The photographs he returned were wonderfully artistic, but totally real and authentic. He 100% delivered on what we requested and what he had promised.
Shane found wonderful moments and captured the essence of our day, as well as our family. He did encourage us to do some bride and groom portraits–and I’m glad we did–the shots were gorgeous shots and will end up in frames around our house.
Finally, Shane is a great guy to work with. Super nice and professional. He captured so many intimate moments without intruding upon them, but was also fun to have around. He made us all feel very at ease.
Without hesitation, we highly recommend Shane for your big day!
Best of luck to you and thanks again!

Susannah and Ray and Maggie

These are absolutely breathtaking!  Thank you for capturing everything so beautifully.  We love all of them and are trying our very best to pare down for an album.  You were tremendous and I cannot recommend you enough to people.  THANK YOU!

Best, Krysta

Shane,

I don’t know what else to say but, simply, WOW!  Your photos truly blew us away.  They were not wedding pictures at all, but more a series of individual portraits of the most special day of our lives.  Each one is such a composed piece of art and they tell such an amazing and complete story of our day.  Katy looks at them a few different times a day, and each time she is in awe.  We look at them and just feel like we are there in the moment.  I can not say thank you enough…..  WOW. You have exceeded every single expectation we had for you, we were so lucky to have found you!

SHANE!
We are speechless. It was beyond a pleasure to sit together last night and relive our wedding night. You captured moments that we didn’t even remember – and were so sweet and wonderful to see! Thank you for capturing Fudgie, every photo of him –  his smile, his laugh, his reaction when he first saw me – I didn’t even see that!
There are literally no words to express how grateful we are and how thrilled we are of the final product. And by the way – the song you chose for the slideshow, hands down my favorite song for years. That got the tears going immediately.
Bless you, your future as a photographer and whatever is next for you (baby!)
Kara & Fudgie

Shane
You are fucking incredible!!!!! That was amazing, I can’t believe how stunning ALL of those are! Thank you so much for
being part of such a special day, I can’t thank you enough for how perfect my day was, and having you there to tell the story.
We owe you a lifetime of a place to crash in the Canadian Rockies, and can’t wait to have you and Linds up for a visit… and take us up on it, cause you will definitely find us on your couch at some point :)
Lindsay & Brett

Shane,
Are you kidding me? These are amazing!!!! We love them so so so much! We have been going through them for a whole 2 hours.
Shane, thank you so much for being amazing. I can truly say I made one of the best choices of my life. There are so many photos! Thanks again Shane. Ahh!
Warm regards,
Ryan

Hey Shane!
WOW!  These are awesome!  We went through all of the photos on the blog, the slideshow and the pictage site and three hours later…we saw them all :)  I really appreciate what you have created.  There are just so many good photos!!!  We both really love the photo on the lift and how you angled it to the side with background of BC and Avon.  It’s a really cool shot, and I also like the shot at the top with the pouty face.  It’s just all really good…I mean seriously.  A lot of the candid photos of our parents and the shot with Kerry and his Father right after we signed the marriage license is just so cool.  All of the late night dancing shots are so much fun and there are some really good dancers…:)  I know we’re going to treasure these photos forever.  Also, I love all of the photos with my grandmother.  I could go on and on…it’s just awesome!  There’s no other word I can think of.  You capture the moment.  I’ve seen so many wedding photos from past clients…maybe 100 – 200 photo collections if not more, and there is a HUGE difference between your shots and a typical photographer that is good at formals and not so good at candids.
Thank you! Thank you!
Kirsten & Kerry

Shane,
So, I think I’ve done about 30 minutes of actual work so far today because I keep looking at our pictures and the slideshow! Thank you SO much; when I’m looking at them, it feels like I’m reliving my most favorite day. I already have plans to blow up my favorites on canvas. More thank-yous to come of course, just wanted to drop you a quick email that we’ve seen everything…and we are so happy :)

Shane,
I don’t know what to say. We LOVE the pictures and the slideshow you sent was AMAZING!
There were a few of our family members and friends that were unable to make to the wedding and after we sent them the slideshow, they all said the same thing, “it was as if they got to experience the wedding”.
The way you told the story of all the events leading up to the end really made for a breathtaking show. I remember telling natalie early on in our search for a photographer that I wanted someone that could capture moments and you did just that.  Beautiful moments.I think Natalie has watched it about 30 times now and we can’t decide which pictures we want to print and hang on our walls cause they are all so great.
You are such a great guy and so very talented. We are so grateful  that we were able to share those moments with you and so appreciative that you captured them in such a captivating way.
We have been asked many times for your contact information so you might be getting a few more calls from Louisiana now.
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us and we hope you had a great time just as we did.
Mr. & Mrs. Carmouche

Shane,
These photos are amazing, as are the other 1000 you took for us. I knew your spirit and calm demeanor would put Jackie at ease, and that you’d be able to capture the emotions of the evening. Great job! I could not more highly recommend you to anyone wishing for a phenomenal photographer and a calming presence on a day that is anything but…
John

Hi Shane,
AMAAAAAAAZING.  Ugh, I really can’t say it enough, you are amazing.  Thank you so much for everything.  John left town so I don’t know if he’s taken the time to look over our gallery but I have and its exactly what I knew it would be… perfect.
Jackie

Hi Shane,
I just now got to read and watch the slide show……Wow, Beautiful! I LOVE IT!!! Truly amazing. I’m still crying! Thank you!

Shane,
I just looked through ALL of the pictures and they are unbelievable!!!! I don’t even know what to say but you are so amazing and I love them all!!!! I sent them to two of my girlfriends and they both replied that they are going to have you at their wedding. My mom wrote back and said that one of me and my best friend Melissa sitting in the preschool room made her cry. Seriously, AMAZING! I can’t thank you enough for everything!

They are perfect!

Thank you SO much!! We couldn’t have asked for a better depiction of “us”. You captured Brian so well!!!!! Thank you for editing the photos so quickly so that we could suprise my parents.

Shane,
We couldn’t have asked for more perfect photos of our wedding day!! Your style matched our wedding perfectly. You captured the emotions of the day and when we look at our pictures we can’t help but remember it all!!
Kate

Shane,
Amanda and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer at our wedding, period. Your attention to detail, and the ability to capture emotions at just the right time is genius. I’m amazed at how spectacular our photos turned out. Our family even commented on how you seemed to be everywhere at once without being obtrusive or distracting.  Thanks again for being so appoachable and positive the whole day!!
Chris

Shane,
I just wanted to say thank you again for all the hard work you did. Brian and I received so many compliments about how fabulous you were….our guests can’t stop telling us how friendly you were. A few couples thought we were all long time friends because you fit in so perfectly at our wedding. Brian’s sister already said she wants to have you as a photographer when she gets married! We really enjoyed working with you and can’t wait to see the end result. We really apppreciate you spending extra time with us toward the end of the night as we were frantically searching for our marriage license. Thank again! You were great!
Leslie

Shane,
Great pictures! Brian and I are SO HAPPY with the work you did! It appears that we’ll need to buy some more frames for our house since it’ll be a tough decision on which pictures we want to hang on the walls. We can’t wait to see the rest of them. : ) Thanks again. You are truly fabulous! : )
Leslie

Shane,
Just wanted to let you know the first group of pictures is amazing! I have the one of Brian and Leslie with the white stone background as my desktop wallpaper, and everyone who walks by my cube oohs and ahhs. It was obvious from the moment you started snapping that morning that Leslie was very comfortable with you and that she felt relaxed with you there. Many of our friends and family have commented that you were unobtrusive and yet managed to capture all the speical moments. Thanks again for helping capture their special day!

Shane,
OMG…I LOVE THE PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I never really feel I’m photogenic…but you have made me feel that way in your photos.  OMG I’m in love with these pictures!!!!!
Christine,

just got back from lunch…I just looked at these again.  I am dying…so in love with the pictures…they are so fantastic!!!!  Digging the one of Chili with me patting her head.  Adam looks so cute in the tulip/bench picture where I’m kissing him.  You captured my crinkly nose laugh with perfection.  We look pretty sexy kissing…if I am allowed to say that about ourselves.  That Piedmont Park sky picture is rockin!

I can’t wait for the wedding pictures!!!!  You are the best photog in the universe.

Signed,
girl full of superlatives (sorry…so excited) Christine

We LOVE the pics and so do our familyand friends! Everyone could not stop talking about them all weekend in Iowa! Jeff’s mom cried when she saw them! Thanks so much for making it a really fun day!
Jordan

Hey Shane,
I realized on Sunday that in all the madness of getting ready I never looked at myself in the mirror with my dress on….kinda crazy……it makes me that much more excited to see your photographs!
I have had many people comment on how great you are to be around, and how great Preston is to be around!

Brian and I have to agree. We have only seen the sneak peeks of the two shots you showed us….but we are already so happy. I know I said it before the ceremony but you really are great to be around on such a special day, you blend when blending is needed, step up when direction is needed, and overall have a very serene feeling about you.

Just wanted to drop you a little line sayin’ hey and again that the photos are breathtaking….people are saying you HAVE to put that pic in a contest …they say you have a WINNER!
Dee Dee and Brian

Shane,
Theh pictures are AWESOME!!!!! Jesse and I must have looked through them about three times last night. Each time I thought I had found my favorite, a new favorite appeared. You did such an amazing job of capturing our interaction as a couple. Oh and the editing is great too!!!
Thank you again so much!! WE LOVE them! I can’t wait to show other people.
Molly

Shane,
Totally epic. Totally lost for words other than thank you for being a part of our finist hour.

Just wanted to shoot you a little email after I had the privilege of looking through the photos! Yep Shane, no words can begin to describe how much I love these photos! And not just a few of them, but ALL of them!
I’m on the east coast and could not help but staying up until 1am looking through them all!
We are so pleased. Thank you for truly capturing our joy.
You’re the best,
Kristin

Hey Shane
Just wanted to let you know that the pictures are wonderful. They are exactly what we were looking hoping for. You really did a great job of capturing the emotions and significance of the day for us. As we look back on the pictures it took us back to that day and it will for years to come. We both want to thank you for no just being at the wedding; but the entire time you were not only being aware of what pictures needed to be taken, but also being social with guests so that your presence during you work wes less intrusive.
Thanks again Shanwe, we really coulden’t have asked for a better photographer.
Bryan and Angela

Shane,

We cant thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into the shoot and coming all the way out here.
Thanks again.
Kelly

WOW!!! That is all I can really say right now Shane. First of all I am in tears watching this but I also have a HUGE smile on my face thinking about our day and watching how you have captured it so beautifully!
Thank you so much!

Hi Shane!
So I’m finding it hard to stop looking at our photos, they’re just so awesome!  Its hard to believe it’s us, with such a surreal feeling to begin with, the pictures are so incredible, it’s like they’re from a movie.   Well, we have no idea where to start with purchases…we want all of them!  You captured such great moments, at times I had NO idea you were anywhere around, so that’s fun when I’m “oh wow, he got that?!?!?)  haaa i guess that’s part of why you’re so good, your’re so candid.  Its great because even the non-candids are so relaxed and easy with you, you’re just such a cool dude I guess 😉  Its crazy looking at all these pics, it took us almost 2 hrs the first time when we sat down and looked at each and every one…it was so fun, lots of “awww’s” and lots and lots of laughs.  We really feel like you were able to get every person there, not sure how you do it Shane, but right on!  With just over 100 people you covered everything!  the over the river shot is just soo freaking cool to begin with, then you see its our faces on “those people” its AWESOME!   There is a really tender one of getting the dress on, and you can see my mom’s arm wrapped around the front of my waist with my hands holding myself up, its perfect.  Brent and his mom hugging, (all of them) are so emotional and intense.  I could really go on and on and on and on, i want to comment on every single one so you can truly grasp how much we love them, but i think I’d end up writing a novel, so i wont torture you with my horrible grammatical efforts…but i will touch on that the getting ready photos are perfect, love the one of the boys waiting on the stairs at the Chapel where Jonah and Andrew are standing on the edges of the pic and my bros and Brent are on the steps, awesome.  And all the groomsmens hands folded in the pew!  I love seeing my dad walk me down the aisle…the ceremony, love the capture of the high-fives and all the millions of hugs. Obviously, where we are on the tee box glowing, in that massive photo at dusk, WOW.  My dad hugging my mom and I at dinner!  The Photo Spot is the best ever…EVERYONE should do it, its sooo worth all the laughs and memories!
Everything about our wedding was perfection, we had the best day of our lives, and we are so thankful to have met you Shane, to have the best photographer capturing all those moments we will cherish so close to our hearts forever.  Thank you.  Thank you for being so easy, so casual (in a good way) so artistic, just so darnn good at what you do, we loved working with you, and truly feel like we’ve made a friend out of it.  I wish you and your wife all the best in your new endeavours, hope to see you when you are around, and not that I have any doubt, i wish you all the best with you photography in the future.  You truly have an amazing talent for all photography and appreciate art on a whole, i have no doubt you will be incredibly successful.  So thank you again, for everything, keep in touch, take care!
Emily and Brent
