We loved having Sean as our photographer!!

Sean was our wedding photographer and we could not have been happier with the result! Sean's laid back demeanor made taking photos fun and easy on our wedding day, and his work was really excellent - he captured so many shots that we will love for years to come. Sean has been a great guy to work with all around and we highly recommend him!

Beyond grateful!

Sean captured our wedding day beautifully!

While most photographers are looking for “photos” he captured moments, the most meaningful moments of that day. I never thought it was possible to capture a feeling in a photo, but he was able to.

We are forever grateful and could not have asked for a more thoughtful photographer! He is kind, funny, quirky, and extremely creative! He was an excellent choice for us. Our wedding day went by so quickly. My husband and I felt sad that we missed out on so much, but after seeing all the photos Sean captured, we can relive that day forever!

Wonderful experience!

Sean did our wedding in September of 2023 and he was amazing! He showed up early and made sure we got every picture we requested and more! We are not very comfortable when getting our pictures taken, but he was able to guide us and made the whole experience enjoyable. I could not be happier and would definitely book with Sean again!
