About Portraits by Shanti

Portraits by Shanti is based out of El Granada, California and works with couples to tell the story of their wedding through a series of unique images. Owner Shanti Duprez has been photographing couples for over 16 years. She earned her B.A in Fine Art from California State University of Hayward. Later in 1997, Shanti was awarded Photographer of the Year from the Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area. This photographer focuses on capturing the authentic and unexpected moments that occur throughout the day, saving the memories on film for her clients to cherish.

Services Offered

A range of wedding bundles are available and can be tailored to suit your individual needs. An initial consultation followed by an engagement session allows Shanti to get to know you and encapsulate the love that you and your partner share. She focuses her attention on you by taking on only one event per day, making sure that every wonderful second is documented. The most popular package on offer includes high-resolution images and a collection of digital files for the couple to view afterward.

    Romance, Families, Love, Life— she captures and understands it all!

    After my first phone call with Shanti, I knew she was perfect for us. I never understood when people said it was important to "interview" your photographer, but now I understand why! She was understanding about any sensitive family dynamics that may affect photos and made us all — including my photophobic husband! — feel so comfortable. She also got us our perfectly curated album full of gorgeous photos within about 3 weeks, while my friends who had gotten married a few months before with other photographers were still waiting for their photos. She is great at photographing couples, kids (when my 2-year old nephew was not happy about being in photos, I told her that he loved trucks and that being near a truck might help. She was soon sprinting out to the street with us to get him close to a truck for some of my now favorite post-ceremony photos!), and will follow your cues as to what you are and aren't comfortable with. I can't recommend her highly enough!

    Magical Wedding Memories

    I think Shanti could coax a smile from freeze-dried lemons - who can help but smile when faced with that much talent and charisma behind the camera? We were so fortunate to have Shanti capturing our wedding and reception memories at Mavericks Event Center in October 2018. Not only was she a pleasure for us to work with, but she made our guests feel incredibly at ease - so many of them have since commented on our "amazing photographer." It takes a special blend of humor, sensitivity, awareness and energy to be able to interact with a group of strangers in a way that makes them comfortable enough to let their personalities shine through. Bonus: Shanti also got our photos finalized and delivered very quickly and exceeded our highest expectations in every way. She is a magician!

    Wow, what a great surprise review! Thank you! A great way to start my week! It isn't hard to bring out the smiles when your day had me smiling from cheek to cheek with all the love and joy on this day!

    Shanti is the BEST! She is so fun to work with and captures those special moments precisely at the right time. She is very easy going and flexible, at the same time she knows exactly what needs to be captured the day of your wedding and makes that happen flawlessly. She was open to all our ideas and requests and well as scoping places near our venues to make sure we a plan and a perfect place for our photos as well as a plan B (incase of weather). Also, use her timeline you'll be thankful you did!!
