This is the 3rd time
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
has done our photos and we plan to come back to him every year! His passion for what is does is obvious. He has an amazing ability to capture the essence of each individual.
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
makes you feel comfortable from the time you set foot in the door. He sat down with the group to discuss what was going on with us, what we'd like to do and just generally connecting with everyone. Each person had their own individual picture first, then he did small groups (kids/grandpa, each family, etc.) then he did finished with the large group photo. The studio is in a separate area but in the waiting area there is a large tv screen where you can watch what's going on inside the studio. Very cool! The kids absolutely love him! When our 6 year old started to get squirrely,

brought his props and had him laughing in no time. Even my "I never smile in pictures" father in law smiled! ALOT! He told
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
he wasn't really looking forward to the photo session but that he'd had a great time. That is HIGH praise coming from him! Not only is he an incredibly talented photographer, he's a sweetheart of a guy. I highly recommend him to anyone!

We contacted
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
for long-overdue family photos. We requested to do the photo shoot at a local park. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate on the first day that we scheduled...nor on the second date. However,
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
was flexible and accommodating. She worked with us (and Mother Nature) to find a date and time that met our needs. She spent a lot of time with us on several different locations throughout the park. And the best part -- the shots look terrific. The color is great, the composition is fantastic. We are actually having trouble deciding which ones to purchase -- but
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
is helping us with that as well. We'll be ordering this week and I'll update this review once we receive the prints. As a side note, we looked at several other photographers and
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
's end product and pricing put her at the top of our list. We'll definitely be using

in the future.

Photo shoot was great.
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
was prompt and fun. She came to our home and was prepared with her equipment. Photos were available relatively quickly for viewing, though we ran into some difficulty thereafter. Communication was mostly via email and text and not very prompt. In the end, it took several MONTHS to obtain the final photo prints! Her photo composition and editing skills were decent, though she lacked in professionalism, later indicating that personal life difficulties impeded her ability to complete work by deadlines SHE set for herself. I get that life happens and would have been very understanding of a delay, though there was little communication and only after threats of calling the BBB did she return my calls.

I contacted
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
to see if she would be able to take family pictures the Saturday after Christmas. I have 3 grown children and haven't had any professional pictures taken in many years. Since they were all going to be at my house over the holidays I wanted to take advantage and get some pictures taken. We set up a time for her to arrive at my house on the morning of December 27th. She arrived promptly and was quick at setting everything up. She had very good suggestions for the shots. She took posed shots of us as well as more candid ones where we were just sitting on the couch talking and laughing. I thought she was very professional and was very pleased with everything. The $250 dollars was for the photo session and all of the pictures from it. She told me she would email me information as well as mail me CD's with the pictures on them. She also gave me suggestions for where I could get prints developed as well as where I could get some developed on canvas. Overall I was very happy with everything and wouldn't hesitate to use her again.

Our family was overdue for pictures so a friend recommended
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
. It didn't take long while viewing samples of her work online to feel confident we had made a good choice. It had been so long since our last pictures that this might have well been our first time. To make matters worse I am very uncomfortable with having my picture taken and it shows.
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
and her assistant arrived early at the location and by the time we arrived was prepared with lots of ideas and suggestions. She was so patient with us, made us feel at ease and the experiencewas more like we were spending time with a friend than a photography session. The pictures she took were amazing. She truly has a talent for picture composition and her post-processing skills are equally impressive. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

it started off great. We met with him a month before our wedding. The day of the wedding went great. He even did some fancy taping on our way to the reception.
After weeks of bugging him, we finally received the dvd's 8 weeks after our wedding, but i was immediately disappointed.
First my name was misspelled on the cheap looking DVD cover he made - he spelled it "Rachae;". Yes, a semi-colon in my name. On the label on the DVD, he spelled my name "
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
". Again, wrong.... Considering we filled out an agreement and my name was spelled correctly on it, it was just a bad way to start with our wedding DVD.
We had a different song played during our wedding. it was "I want to grow old with you", the song from the wedding singer. however, i had a different version played. One of the short videos that was provided used the version from the film, WITH the talking from the film. it was just disappointing that the version we had during our ceremony was not used. he could have asked for it, but he never did.
the video of our wedding ceremony was going great until, for some unknown reason, he decided to add a black and white feature during the ceremony at a few different parts. it added NOTHING and all it did was distract from the ceremony. i kept thinking why did he put that there? it was literally in the middle of the ceremony when it changed to black and
Castle Shannon Photographers Provider Name Locked
for a minute and then back to color. all it did was distract.
about 2 weeks after we received our wedding DVD, i emailed him asking him to correct his mistakes to my name as well as take out the black and white feature of the ceremony. it's been 4 weeks with absolutely no response.
overall, a disappointment transaction.

She did an amazing job. She even came to the rehearsal as well as helped set up for the wedding. She is ready to make suggestions and help guide you through the shoot. Very professional.
