AMAZING team! My husband and I are not so photogenic and a little camera shy, but Shem & Joy made us feel so comfortable and our pictures turned out literally perfect! They are such genuine people and so much fun to be around. Definitely recommend Unique Touch Photography!

The team at Unique Touch Photography is amazing. They are the nicest, hardest working group of people I have worked with! Everyone was easy to get in touch with, responsive to questions, and genuinely cared about making our day the best it could be. They had a great price for an...

I found Unique Touch Photography through The Knot and they were the first and only photographer we met with. Shem and Joy were so personable when My mom and I met with them and we signed the contract that day. Shem and I stayed in contact leading up to our wedding day and we... Read More had everything down to the minute scheduled. The day of our wedding Shem and Bekka (our second photographer) were right on time and got to work immediately. When My husband and I had our first look we both felt completely at ease working with them and taking good pointers from them. My husband was somewhat dreading having to stand and smile for so many photos but after all was said and done he said he "Really enjoyed working with Shem and Bekka. They were fun and Shem made things not awkward." After the wedding I could NOT wait to see our photos and the wait was well worth it! I got the photos and was able to send them to all of our family and friends to look through and order through them if they wanted. The thing I also enjoyed was we got all the rights to the photos also. If I were in the early planning stages again I would not change my decision to go with Unique Touch Photographer. Happy wedding planning to all!

Gorgeous photos and lots of fun!

We used Unique Touch because it was the number one suggested photographer for the Stone Barn. The pricing was reasonable and the photographers were very personable, making us laugh all day long! Shem and Joy live right by the barn so if they needed anything they could just pop... Read More back home quick to get it! We also used U T for our photobooth.

package includes two photographers for pictures prior to ceremony, ceremony, second location, reception, and about the 4th dance. Also receive copyrights to the photos. The main photographer is one of the husband/wife team. We worked with Shem, the husband. (Joy was our... Read More photographer for the engagement session and she was a pleasure to work with and did a great job). For the wedding Shem has a great sense of humor, not always appropriate, but for our wedding party it fit right it. Overall went well, make sure make a list of all photos wanted and have someone (I used my personal attendant) watching to make sure they are all getting done! (This is with any photographer). With unique touch photography you go over all pictures wanted a couple weeks before the wedding, however, Shem did not go into a lot of depth with this and day of wedding it was handed off to another person (from my family) to make sure it was getting done. Overall good, picture quality great.
