Shasta was great to work with! She is so laid back, which was very nice on such a hectic day. My husband hates getting pictures taken, and even he was very impressed at how comfortable she made him feel throughout the day!!

Shasta was amazing on wedding day! She wasn't in our faces with the camera, could manage a large (19 people) wedding party for group photos, and was extremely thoughtful and just an awesome person to be around. I can't wait to get our pictures!

We love Shasta! She was the absolute best choice we could have made to capture our day. I cannot say enough good things. 1. She is a total sweetheart and very easy to work with. 2. She has a passion for her job and that comes across in everything she does to make your wedding day as easy and fun as possible. You knew she was there but never ever did she get in the way. 3. Girl has got talent! Her photos blew me away looking through her portfolio and I was still shocked at how amazing our photos turned out. I literally cried when she first sent me the link. Everyone has complimented us on how beautiful they are. Definitely photos we will treasure forever. We are so grateful to SPM and know that future brides will be so lucky to have her capture their day!

Shasta was amazing. She was timely and professional. She was able to direct our large families and wedding party very well. I was really impressed on how she directed my husband and I to great locations at/near or venues in order to get great background and poses for the pictures. She was extremely nice and helpful and even contributed to keeping the reception events on time and gave us the idea to help fix my wedding dress when I was having a malfunction! I would recommend her to anyone who needs a wedding photographer in the Ann Arbor/Detroit, Michigan area. Her prices are very competitive. I haven't seen the photos yet, but I can't wait until I get them back from her! Thank you Shasta for helping to make our wedding an amazing day.

It has been and continues to be an absolute pleasure working with Shasta. The pictures she took are absolutely stunning, and she did a great job wrangling family members and guests for pictures we wanted to take during the wedding. As a couple that was relatively clueless about how things should flow, Shasta was also really helpful in working with us to outline a schedule for our wedding day. We would certainly recommend her to anyone in the area and couldn't be happier with our decision to have her at our wedding!

Shasta was incredible! I highly recommend her for any photography need. She did an amazing job with my wedding pictures and I loved every single one of them and how they turned out. She was very professional, easy to work with, had great ideas, had very competitive prices and was very quick with the turn around on our pictures. We have her lined up already to do our son's pictures and are excited to see what she can do with him. We will definitely be using her for years to come. Choose Shasta Marie Photography!

Shasta was a pleasure to work with. She took the time to get to know my husband and I and understand the type of people we are and the photos we wanted. She was very quick to provide us our online gallery within a short two weeks after our wedding. The photos are just what we wanted to cherish our special day and we've received many compliments on them from family and friends.


Monica said...

Shasta was outstanding! We had her last fall take our family portraits/engagement photo's and we loved them. Then most recently she shared our wedding day with us as our photographer. Loved worked with her for the 2nd time! She has a giving heart and captured many special memories! Thank you so much Shasta


Megan said... 
I'm really glad we found Shasta for our wedding! She was very down to Earth and very helpful. She had some great ideas for pictures and took into account what we liked as well. She was on time if not early and even helped us finish up with our decorations inside the barn at our site! I would definitely recommend her to anyone! Andy and Megan Gelardi

She is absolutely awesome. Had my engagement photos done yesterday. It was soo much fun. She went above and beyond. We took photos in the river and she was in up to her thighs with jeans on in the water. She's very friendly, talented, and professional I would highly recommend her.


Megan said... 
Shasta is an amazing photographer!!! We gave her a general idea of what we were looking for as far as wedding photos. She expanded that and gave us above and beyond what we desired to capture our wedding photos. I am thinking of ways I can work with her in the future. She is very friendly, professional, and has a great eye for catching amazing photos. I would definitely recommend her to anyone I know. She is worth her weight in gold!

Shasta photographed our April wedding and did a fantastic job! The day of she made me and my family feel at ease and guided us throughout the process. Her eye for detail and use of lighting techniques is amazing - we love our photos! We would have liked a bit more editing to the final photos
