My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Shinay -- she shot our engagement photos and was the lead photographer on our wedding day! While her work speaks for itself, I'd like to add that she's professional, punctual and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. When we first met, she took the time to talk to us about what kind of photos we were looking to capture on the big day. We really wanted organic, naturally lit photos that didn't look/feel overly-posed or cheesy. She was able to deliver on that, capturing beautiful moments from our wedding day, without being the least bit obtrusive to us or our wedding guests. We are very pleased with the photos we received and we would recommend Shinay to any bride and groom!Sent on 09/02/2015

I loved Shinay's work before I met her. My best friend, and one of my bridesmaids, used Shinay for her engagement photos, and I was blown away by the quality and beauty of her work. I was newly engaged, and hadn't yet begun my search for a photographer; the search seemed daunting, given the amount of photographers in NYC, and the prices! Yikes! I asked my friend about Shinay's prices and was shocked that I could afford such an amazing photographer.
Fast forward to Katy's wedding and as a bridesmaid, I was blown away by how NICE her photographer-Shinay-was. She was kind, considerate, and definitely not pushy. I asked Shinay immediately "are you booked on October 15, 2016? If not, you are hired."
I'm so glad I did just that. Shinay and her team are a pleasure to work with. She is responsive, honest, and an all around lovely person, who also happens to be a phenomenal photographer. Shinay shot both our engagement photos and our wedding photos; if given the opportunity I would hire her again in an instant. We received so many compliments on our engagement shoot that even after our wedding, family members continue to request copies of our engagement photos. As for our wedding, I have only seen several "sneak peaks"... and I can say wholeheartedly that she perfectly captured the day. My husband and I look like the best versions of our selves, and the happiness and joy that we shared on that day shines in every picture.
Shinay and her assistants (who I would also highly recommend) are truly gifted. I can't just say that I am "pleased" with Shinay's work, I am honored to have worked with her and will continue to sing her praises to any newly engaged couple I meet. Do yourself a favor and HIRE HER IMMEDIATELY!

Shinay was beyond perfect. I hired her for my October 1st wedding. She had kept in touch with me very well during the planning stages. When the forecast was calling for rain on our wedding day she was totally flexible and supportive while we tried to come up with plan b ideas, as the original plan was to take photos outdoors before the ceremony. Luckily the rain held out and we were able to hold the shoot outdoors as I wanted from day one. I've now seen my sneak peek shots and I'm already in love. She captured our "first look" so beautifully. My guy was afraid the whole thing would look forced and cookie cutter but from what I've seen so far, we look ourselves and comfortable. I can't wait to see the rest!
Great team to work with!!
Anyone can take a picture to capture moments but it's the uniqueness,creativity and personality of a true artist that can transform these moments into lifelong memories. Shinay is a professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Something Blue Photography for that personable touch.
