I love capturing that feeling that draws 2 people together and the emotion behind it that tells your story.

Having come across Sheena’s work for an previous wedding at our venue, we were blown away by her candid but elegant style of shooting.Sent on 07/17/2019
After a quick Skype call, we were immediately put at ease by her easy-going manner and how she thoughtfully listened to our concerns. It was really important to us that our pictures didn’t seem posed and we were so relieved that Sheena was on the same page about capturing the spontaneous moments and highlighting our beautiful venue space (plus the few requisite family shots, too). We both instinctively knew that she was the photographer for us, and booking Sheena’s services was one of the easiest and best decisions we made during our wedding planning!
Sheena was wonderful to work with in the months leading up to the wedding, from the quick and painless online contract & payment to the very thoughtful card she sent to us at New Year’s. Upon meeting her in person a few weeks before the wedding, her professionalism was readily apparent and she gave us great recommendations about the order and composition of the various “required” photos (as well as tips on the overall timing for the day that proved immensely helpful). We knew we were in good hands, and in the stressful few weeks before the wedding, seriously appreciated how easy she made everything.
On the day of our wedding, Sheena showed up perfectly on time (after having arrived the day before to scout the perfect lighting and backdrops for our photos – wow!) and was composed, organized and efficient throughout the day’s events. In the pictures before the ceremony, she managed to coax natural smiles out of our young flower girls and ring bearer and put our wedding party at ease for some truly beautiful candid shots. Despite some limitations to shooting in a small church during our ceremony, Sheena truly captured some amazing moments, and she had such great ideas for our newlywed pictures that accentuated the beautiful outdoor surroundings at our venue. Perhaps even more impressively, she managed all of the obligatory family pics quickly so we could get back to the cocktail hour to mingle with our guests. This was no small feat, considering I come from a very large family (who had to be corralled away from the passed appetizers on multiple occasions ).
After the wedding, Sheena returned the digital preview and final set of wedding pictures super quickly, and we were truly blown away. The pictures were absolutely breathtaking (despite an overcast March day), and she managed to capture so much joy (plus some truly amazing moves on the dance floor). Her pictures all seemed spontaneous and full of life, and she truly did justice to our beautiful friends and family (as well as our venue). Her photography truly showcased the most beautiful and best day of our lives, and we’re so grateful to Sheena for her amazing work.
We couldn’t possibly recommend her more highly. We absolutely loved working with her and hope to have other occasions to do so in the future, too.

We worked with Sheena and her second shooter, Claire, for our engagement party, engagement photos, rehearsal dinner, and wedding (which took place at Current at Chelsea Piers). Our experience was incredible. Sheena and Claire are both kind, professional, and fun — and the images they produced for us are nothing short of amazing. We wanted a focus on candid images, and they captured our family and guests so beautifully. We received the photos from all our events exactly when Sheena said they would be ready. They put everyone at ease and blended into the events seamlessly. We would highly recommend Sheena and Unique Lapin.Sent on 11/06/2017

Sheena was one of the first vendors we booked; we quickly fell in love with her style of documentary photography after browsing through all of the gorgeous weddings on her blog. Sheena was amazing to work with fro the very beginning. She is organized, proactive, responsive and thoughtful. Leading up to the wedding we did an engagement shoot, which I am so happy we did because it allowed us to get comfortable in front of the camera and have an understanding of what the wedding day would be like. It also allowed us to get to know Sheena better - we left wanting to be her friend because she's awesome! That shoot was a highlight of our engagement and we recommend all couples do it. On the actual wedding day, Sheena was a BOSS in the best sense of the word. Our timeline was impacted by a few delays but Sheena somehow managed to get our family shots in and make sure everything/everyone ran smoothly, which is not really in her job description. Sheena goes above and beyond. Having just received our photos, we can also say with certainty that having Sheena as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made! Sheena has such a unique style and so beautifully captures those spontaneous moments you want to remember for the rest of your life. Yes, with Sheena you can also take your standard posed family shots, but you'll scroll through the images and see so many moments you forgot had even happened and the immense happiness you felt that day comes right back. We feel that's the marker of a special photographer. We would give Sheena the highest recommendation possible. We can't thank you enough, Sheena & Jeff, for being a part of our wedding day and allowing us to remember it through your beautiful work!Sent on 10/20/2017
