Trustworthy reviews are our priority. Businesses can't pay to change or remove reviews.
Everyone we dealt with was great! We absolutely looove our pictures and we are getting soo many compliments! Renaissance definitely does the most unique ad pretty pics of all vendors we have seen to date. We highly recommend and worth the price.
Booked with this amazing team and so far they have been amazing! Respond to emails very quickly and alleviate so much stress. Willing to go above and beyond for all of your requests.
Renaissance Studios was one of the first vendors that we booked. Shawn was super responsive, helpful, and accommodating! He always kept us in the loop with what to expect. The whole process is very organized and effective. We had to complete several questionnaires so that they knew more about us as a couple, what sort of style we are going for, and what sort of shots are important to us.
For our engagement shoot, we got many more photos than promised. Kimon was amazing to work with. My husband and I are super awkward with pictures, but he made us feel comfortable and we enjoyed every minute of shooting with him! He's also great with getting kids to look and smile at the camera. We look forward to receiving our wedding photos and album! I would definitely recommend Renaissance Studios!
Prior to our engagement we began seeing photos taken by photographers from Renaissance Studios. We LOVED their style and how beautifully the photographers seemed to capture the moments. The photos looked fun, but all showed great depth and emotion. We really wanted a mix of both! Once we got engaged we contacted them almost immediately to see if they had our wedding date available. We met with Clint at their location in Milton and immediately felt like we were chatting with one of our friends (turns out that is very, very important for good photos! It makes it so much easier when you are comfortable hanging out with someone all day). We hired Clint on the spot and knew that we could trust Clint to capture our big day. A few months later we did our engagement session. It was everything we thought it would be, so much fun and the photos are filled with all the love and joy we were feeling that day! Our friends and family loved the pictures and several friends ended up booking Renaissance Studios for their weddings. Everything was delivered to us in a timely fashion and communication was fabulous the entire time. Flash forward 1 year, to our wedding day. Clint arrived to the Brides side of things, while Helen went to see the Gents. Clint came in like a breathe of fresh air, first off, you barely even notice him taking photos, but second of all, everyone absolutely loved having his positive energy around. The boys said Helen was the same, so fun!!! They were there for us through the whole day, and although it was cold, never complained once and just keep those good vibes flowing. The finished product was some of the most AMAZING photos, pictures showing the joy in our bridal party, highlighting the love we have for one another and showing the pride in our parents eyes. We could not have asked for better photos. Clint Russell and Renaissance Studios are one-of-a-kind and they were worth every penny. Thank you for all that you did to make our day, the best day!!!
To our newfound family :)
THANK YOU is just really not enough! These first teaser images have us in literal misty tears with such beautiful reminders of our all-time favourite day everrrrr!!!
The talent & the time we know has already been (and will be) spent on commemorating our wedding day is something we'll never truly be able to "pay" you for! Working with you at every stage - before and following the actual wedding day - is something we will definitely cherish! Such fun! And emotions, oh myyyy!! We couldn't have entrusted the absolutely most important task of capturing the essence of our day to any other team!
Again....Clint & Shawn: thank you thank you - we owe you so much!!!! Truly!
Lots of love, Nat&Kat
We could not have asked for a better experience from Shawn and the team at Renaissance Studios! Shawn was so enthusiastic and gave great direction to make our shoots with him fun and easy. We would use them again in a heart beat!
Can't even begin to describe how amazing our experience was with Renaissance Studios! We used them for both our engagement photos and wedding photos and from start to finish everything was perfect! The engagement photos and wedding teasers that we have received so far are beyond anything we could have ever imagined.. the colours and style of photography are exactly what I had envisioned my photos to look like. Shawn was extremely helpful with any questions that I had and responded to emails very quickly. He explained everything we needed to know and made us feel at ease. Josh did our engagement photos and helped us pick the perfect location to shoot them - I told him what style I wanted and he came up with the perfect place. He was super friendly and professional and most importantly, took amazing photos! He was super open to our ideas (I obviously had a bunch from Pinterest) and worked with them to get the perfect shots. Josh & Gord did our wedding photos, and again, they went above and beyond - making sure we got the shots I had requested we get in the pre-wedding questionnaire. Love love love Renaissance Studios!! :)
I am giving them a bad review because they have bad customer service. I did not get my photography by them but I did purchase my wedding invitations through their company. The wedding invitations turned out great but it did not come with any envelopes. I had specifically asked them if the invitations came with envelopes because I did not want to bother with getting envelopes if they did. AND most invitations come with envelopes from my knowledge!!!! They replied back that they did. The emails replies came quick with ordering with them however, after ordering with them, the email response took forever...
The invitations did NOT come with envelopes and when I asked them if there was a mistake through email, no response was given. I emailed several people who told me it wasn't their responsibility or a 'out of the office' response came back.
It has been about 1 month since I have emailed and no one has given me any response about the envelopes. This is pretty bad.
I had to go out of my way to purchase my own envelopes when I was informed that my invitations would come with them.
Never again will I order through them and I don't think you should either. They are too busy to respond to you with an answer.
We had both our engagement photos and wedding photos taken by Renaissance. Our photographers were Shannon for our engagement and Jenn and Sam for our wedding. All photographers were incredible, made us feel very comfortable and were able to capture "us". By far Renaissance was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The communication was the best, pictures PERFECT and overall just a great experience.
I'm not even sure where to begin with this review - I am so over the moon with Renaissance Studios! From the moment Shawn responded to my first email, I was immediately put at ease with his friendliness. In fact, he was the only vendor I didn't meet until the day of the wedding because I felt so comfortable with him. Well he definitely did not disappoint! By the time we got to the venue the day of the wedding, Shawn had already scoped out the best locations for everything from the 'first look', to family pictures, to the bride and groom shots. I cannot express how comfortable Shawn made my (now) husband and I feel throughout the day. Neither of us had ever had professional pictures done before, and Shawn made us both feel like naturals. I loved watching him work to get the best shots and angles - he truly is a professional, with an amazing eye for not only the posed shots, but for the candid moments as well. I can't speak highly enough of him. He worked with such ease on the wedding day - all of our guests loved him. He even gave my brother, who is in school for digital media, tips on how to take great pictures (which he loved, and still raves about). When Shawn sent us our 'teaser' gallery shortly after the wedding, my husband and I were speechless. The photos were absolutely breathtaking. I was extremely emotional going through each shot - Shawn really captured some incredible moments of the day in some incredible ways. All of our family and friends have raved about how beautiful the photos were (and most tell me they continue to peek at the photos often!) Words cannot express how grateful we are to have worked with Shawn. He truly captured our wedding day perfectly (and we've only seen the teasers!) I promise you that you will not be disappointed booking Renaissance for your wedding - all of their photographers take beautiful photos.
We had Kimon for our engagement and wedding photos. He was able to capture our wedding and every specific detail. He was a lot of fun to work with and kept my bridal party entertained so they weren't dying after 100's of photos. He was extremely creative with the photo set ups and locations of each one.
Renaissance Studios Photography is just amazing.. They respond to your questions promptly, they ask questions to make sure you capture exactly what you what, they are clear and concise from the beginning and they felt like long time friends on the big day. Heather was my photographer and we all just adored her. She was extremely understanding and flexible with throughout the day. Shawn spoke with us a lot over the 7 months leading up to the day, he was very kind and understanding, not to mention speedy with his responses. They also came 5 hours out of town to join us!!!
I just cannot say enough nice things about this company. The artists work speaks for itself, just take a gander though their profiles and you will not be able to stop looking.
I am the happiest bride ever becau
My husband and I got married this weekend and wanted to send our heartfelt thanks to Kimon! We truly don't know how we would've got through the day without him. He completely "gets us" - and fitted in so well with our intimate wedding... Plus he's super talented, and was a joy to watch him work!!!
Kimon and Renaissance Photography, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You've made this rock and roll, anatomy obsessed couple extremely happy!
I do some wedding photography myself, and have observed the photographers at many weddings.
This company is by far the best I have seen to date. We hired two photographer for my wedding. They both followed the schedule perfectly, were extremely well prepared and provided a service beyond what I could have asked for.
Before the wedding, we communicated quite frequently - they have an online tool allowing you to share all the details of the wedding.
The day of, they showed up slightly early and ready to work. They attitudes were fantastic!
I told them to work their magic. They were extremely personable, made us comfortable, and helped get us out of the norm to take some truly magical pictures.
They were very friendly to our guests and polite. We reserved spots for them at a few tables so they could float around and it was actually great to see them enjoying the wedding along with taking some extremely incredible photos.
One other great thing this photography service does is set good expectations. They set timelines, and let you know when to expect pictures after the wedding. They explain in detail extra options, and are very courteous.
I rate this company 5/5 because they did in fact exceed my expectations. They went above and beyond to make my wedding experience unlike anything I have ever experienced. They worked with us and because of that I highly recommend this company.
Using Renaissance, and especially their photogropher Kimon was the best decision we made in regards to our wedding.
they were fun, relaxed, professional and responsive.
Our pics are stunning.
Renaissance Studios was amazing to work with and we are so happy with our beautiful pictures thus far. We did an engagement shoot with them which turned out great and then our wedding. So far we have aour wedding teasers, all amazing picutres and we can't wait for the rest when they are ready!
Everyone at the Renaissance team is fabulous. I dealt with Shawn for most of the contract, organizing and admin related information. He was always super friendly, professional and so quick to respond! As a bride this is an extremely important quality with your vendors. Renaissance never dissapointed!
As for our photogrpahers, Clint an Kelsey were amazing! So nice and friendly to work with...........this is huge on your big day!! Knowing that your photographer will take care of all of the special shots you requested without stressing you out about it was absolutely perfect. They were everywhere all day. They were always considerate and friendly, reminding us of times and our shedule. They were very accommodating and always striving to get all of the shots we wanted (and didn't even know we wanted!) They are definitely the professional and know their stuff. they made great suggestions to us throughout the day tha helped make our pictures and our wedding even more perfect.
If you want fantastic people to work with and even more fantastic photos of the best day of your life choose the team at Renaissance!!
A very happy Bride:)
