If you are looking for a wedding photographer shea is your man. We chose shea following a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. Shea is so professional a d he is so dedicated to getting clients the best pictures. He is extremely dedicated and very organised.

Fantastic photographer
Just back from seeing our Wedding photos and we’re in love with them all. Shea has been amazing from the moment we booked right through to the big day. He was so organised at every stage! We loved the images from our engagement shoot we weren’t surprised that we loved all the wedding images too. He even got my hubby to smile....#miracleworker. We can’t wait to choose our album photos and see them in print although I don’t know how we’ll be able to leave ones out! I would without a doubt recommend Shea to everyone, he’s such a gentleman and an amazing photographer!! X

5 stars in't enough for Shea
5 stars isn't enough for Shea and his work! We booked Shea for our wedding June 2nd 2017 and aside from his photos being amazing and him making us feel so at ease throughout the whole process, from the very beginning he was the most courteous and most organised person we have dealt with! I don't really like my photos being taken so we were very nervous doing the engagement shoot, but Shea's calming nature really put us at ease and we ended up actually, really enjoying it! Photos were top class and Shea used them to make a guest book for the wedding - everyone loved it and it's something we'll cherish forever. He kept the jokes coming all day, on the wedding day and had us laughing from start to finish - He is so dedicated to his work and we couldn't recommend him enough!! Can't wait to see our album :) We just need to sift through all the gorgeous photos first! Can't wait to work with you again Shea!

Thanks so much again Shea
We can’t thank Shea enough for all his hard work, from the engagement shoot to our wedding day. We felt very at ease with him from the start(both of us aren’t big fans of getting our picture taken!). Shea captured lots of pictures on our day and we had our usb pen with every picture exactly 4 weeks after the wedding. Everyone who attended the wedding loved the engagement photo and there were able to leave messages on the border of the picture. It takes pride of place in our home. Can’t wait to get our album! Thanks so much again Shea!

AMAZING! We had booked Shea even before the chapel or hotel because we loved his work and his personality so much! Shea worked tirelessly throughout the day to capture as much as he could and we couldn't be happier with the end results. Thank you so much Shea for being such an important part of the biggest day of our lives!
