Professional & Highly Recommend
Shane was recommended by our vendor for photography. We wanted to work with someone who was familiar with the venue & photos were my husband & I's most important aspect of our wedding day. We wanted someone to capture every bit of our day & we couldn't have been more thrilled to work with Shane. He talked us through the whole process & leading up to the day, if I ever had any questions, he got back to me with all my questions answered. We wanted to do a first-look & he worked with our schedule to make sure we had enough time to get all those photos done so we could enjoy our cocktail hour with family & friends. Even though our wedding day was rainy, he even took us aside during the wedding to capture some great shots of just my husband and I outside when the weather lightened up. We are extremely pleased with Shane's professionalism & work and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer!Sent on 05/17/2019

A fabulous photographer who is able to capture exactly who you are as a couple
We found Shane Godfrey on a list of recommended vendors given to us by our venue (The Barn at Gibbet Hill) and decided to meet with him after seeing samples of his beautiful work online. He seemed to capture not only the just the event and the attendants, but the emotion behind what was going on. When we had our meeting, he showed us sample books of his work, wedding albums he had done and gave us access to an online photo collection from a previous wedding (which also gave us insight into what we would receive after our wedding). He emphasized that his goal was to illustrate the spirit of the couple and guests and that he typically worked on a loose plan of what photos he would take and work off what stood out to him the day of. That aligned perfectly with what we were looking for, as we did not want lots of planned shots or intend to work off a shot list. We loved how he even his posed photos looked natural, and the fact that he relied heavily on capturing candid moments, somehow managing to always make the people in them look good (which really takes some artistic genius). He works with a second photographer (her name was Meg and she also is incredibly talented), which was great on the wedding day because they were able to take “getting ready” photos of both of us (and our wedding parties) and also capture moments from the whole event from multiple angles. Around sunset Shane came up to us to let us know that it would be the perfect time to take some shots in the field near the barn. These “golden hour” shots are unbelievable gorgeous and definitely some of our favorites from the night. Yet, it’s hard to pick favorites when everything was captured so perfectly. Shane told us that between he and Meg they typically take around 7,000 - 8,000 photographs throughout the night and then send you 500 - 1,000; which shows you how hard they work both during the event and afterward. We are now selecting which photos to use in the wedding album that we ordered from him, and you know that a photographer must have done an amazing job when even your “narrowed down” list is more than double what an album can actually fit. Shane captured every moment that we wanted during our wedding, and so much more. We will look back at these photos for the rest of our lives and could not be happier with the way they came out. You will be making a wonderful decision if you decide to use him for your wedding!Sent on 10/24/2018

A consummate artist who will capture your emotions perfectly!
Shane was suggested to us with tremendously high praise! In short, even with this in mind, he exceeded our expectations by miles! Since we were planning the wedding from out of state (the venue was the Harvard Art Museum and we were no longer living in Boston at the time), we were very much hoping to meet up with Shane and walk around the venue together to hear his / as well as share our thoughts. He was tremendously accommodating with the timing constraints of our visit and we had an amazing time walking around both venues the events were held in (A. Busch Hall and the Harvard Art Museum). On the day of our wedding, Shane and his assistant, Meg, were a tag-team-duo that rivaled Batman and Robin! They were perfectly in sync and captured both the moments and the emotions of the day! Shane is a true artist and captured a very unique and special print using his Wista field camera that we absolutely adore! We cannot recommend Shane with any higher praise; he is amazingly understanding, attentive, kind, super resourceful and a truly astounding photographer!Sent on 01/06/2019
I had the pleasure to meet Shane working a Boston wedding. There were many sites selected for the photos and he took wonderful photos in each. The aerial shot in St. Cecilia's church was just amazing and I particularly liked how he used the trees at Boston Common as a backdrop. He was very responsive to my requests for photos of the flowers and I look forward to seeing him again.
Shane is amazing! We absolutely love working with him. He brings a positive vibe and always has a smile on his face. He's so passionate about his craft we refer him on a regular basis. Its awesome because we know he'll take great care of the couple plus we'll get to see him more often at weddings, which makes our day more enjoyable too. Shane also loves great music so sometimes we talk DJ shop too which is a blast. You can tell some photographers are stuck in a rut but Shane is the exact opposite always pushing the boundaries and being creative. Keep up the great work my friend!!
We have worked with Shane Godfrey now multiple times and each time have found him both extremely great to work with but more importantly a true artist. He is so easy going yet attentive, respectful, and cutting edge in his work. With all the latest and best gear he is well equipped with experience and concern for each couple unique to themselves. Definitely check out his work - you won't be disappointed!
