Having a wedding at a destination that you know absolutely nothing about and then combining the biggest day of your life in the mix brings on a whole other level of stress. From the moment we found Shawn online and that point forward he has made it a priority to become our friends. He responded quickly to our inquiry, quoted and amazing price and developed a relationship with us in the first week. In the process of getting to know us and finding out what was important to us as couple for our special day he spent many hours on Skype and email with us. One of the first things everyone wants when they are hiring a photographer is to feel important. Important enough to receive the advice, the attention, and the best they would provide for all of their clients no matter how far the budget can take them. Shawn was the first person to respond and treat us as if we were the most important clients he had. We had the privilege of having a well educated photographer about different locations within Boston that met our unique situation. With the wedding being at another destination, we wanted to embrace the essence of the coast, and some of the history of Boston baseball and Shawn Black went above and beyond to capture these special moments for us. More importantly, his photographs are beyond amazing. His photographs are always of the highest quality no matter the budget because he is so talented that he does not know how to be anything less than artistic and visually sound. Our photographs are unique, visually profound, and exceptional quality. So if you are looking for a photographer that will capture you for who you are visually, provide exceptional photographs, treat you as if you are on top of the world, and continue with a friendship throughout the most important time of your life, then you have found the most memorable part of your big day.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience was having Shawn Black as my wedding photographer! Shawn has mastered the balance of being the consummate professional, having the perfect eye for photography and thinking outside of the box. Our engagement pictures were unbelievable and the session was so much fun. We shot outside of Fenway Park and Shawn totally captured the true "us" with the rich backgrounds of the Green Monster and fenway brick. We loved them so much that had them made into a book that we used as a guest book at the wedding. Everyone raved about them! The day of wedding Shawn was so much more than our photographer. He totally kept us on time as we were getting ready at my mother's house all while keeping me completely relaxed. He even ended up helping my sister tie up the corset back of my dress! He captured all of my formal shots in a timely manner and after that if felt like we hardly saw him.....he managed to capture every moment of the wedding while blending in with the background and without sticking out in the crowd. We got all of the important shots (cake cutting, first dance, etc) but more importantly Shawn captured the emotion and excitement of the night with his candid shots. We will cherish these pictures the most and feel as though we re-live the wedding each time we look at them. We recommend Shawn Black to everyone who wants any event captured on film...he is the absolute best!

Shawn did our engagement session as well as our wedding day and we had a great experience with him both times. We wandered around Boston in the freezing cold for our engagement session and he had no problem crawling around on the ground to get a couple of shots we wanted. For the wedding he beat us to the venue and called me since I was stuck in traffic and got right to work with all of the dress, accessory and setup shots he could while he was waiting for our arrival. Once we go there he got everything else and we rushed down for the ceremony keeping everything right on time. Shawn and his second shooter did a great job at catching everything and we put them to the test with motorcycles, climbing a ladder and getting a few shots on the boat we were taking on our honeymoon. Shawn will definitely get the shots you're looking for and is really easy to get a hold of if you have any questions or concerns.

Shawn Black is truly amazing! He was very professional and a great guy to work with. He made me feel at ease on my wedding day and got all of the important details in his photos. His talent is beyond words. He sees things in his camera that any normal eye would not see. I highly recommend him for all of your photography needs. I loved my wedding photos and people are stll commenting how beautiful they came out months later.

Kendra & Tony

Shawn Black was amazing at our wedding! The shots he took came out great and he knew exactly how to capture the perfect lighting of the different times of the day. He not only took fabulous pictures of the entire day but he also gave great advice for everything throughout the day to make it go smoothly! I did not even need to go to my bridal emergency kit with the extra safety pins for my bustle of my dress, Shawn had everything right with him so it didn't take time away getting all of that stuff. Shawn is the best photographer and we would highly recommend him for any event. He also has a great personality. Myself, my husband, and my entire bridal party consider him as a friend.

Amanda & Jim

What can I say that I haven't already said 1000 times! Shawn is brilliant! He made such a special day even more special with his little touches and attention to detail! No wonder he is on the most wanted list for wedding photography! Love him and recommend him to all the brides out there that want to capture their special day like no one else can capture it!

Kerrie & Colin

Shawn was an absolute dream to work with. He was extremely professional and immediately understood what my husband and I were hoping to see in our pictures. Shawn also helped with my veil when it wouldn't stay in my hair and bustle (HUGE for a stressed out bride). Rob and I saw 3 pictures so far and were speechless...... Shawn caught the light perfectly!! If you are looking for a photographer that will catch the beauty of your day and the overwhelming emotion you feel, Shawn is the man for you.
