There are not enough words to even describe how amazingly talented Sharaya is. Our wedding photos are unbelievably gorgeous. When we show our photos to people, they are literally taken aback by how gorgeous they are. Aside from being insanely talented, Sharaya provides top notch... Read More customer service and runs the business side of things very efficiently which is also extremely important when hiring vendors. Sharaya was quick to respond to any communication. I like that she sets a limit for the number of weddings she books, so you get the attention you deserve as a bride and groom by someone who is not overwhelmed and over booked. She provided our edited images in a very timely manner. Also, Sharaya is SO organized. She really thinks of EVERYTHING. Before your wedding she helps you hammer out a timeline for everything and sends you questionnaires and checklists to make sure she gets all the shots you would ever want, need, and hope for. There are so many things I wouldn't have thought of and would've probably missed out on if it weren't for her sending those. The day of the wedding, her and the second shooter had all of the information with them and made sure to capture all the shots we requested. Sharaya had great suggestions on where to take photos, how to pose, and just how to get the all around perfect photos. She also has some of the best equipment there is. The second shooter she used was also awesome! Booking Sharaya to capture your day is something you will be forever grateful for!!

From the very first time we met with Sharaya we knew we had to book her.

She was so flexible and understanding with us (I'm terrible at emailing back) and really helped with planning our timeline/photo locations! Our photos are bright, airy, and timeless.
