"You know how people sometimes measure the worth of personal possessions by saying "if my house were ever burning down, I would be sure to flee with my loved ones and ________". After my kids, my lover, and my cats, this photo would be my next priority. It captures how proud I am to have blended my family. I'll cherish it forever. Thank you Shawna."
"If I could give Shawna more stars, I would! The most important thing, other than actually getting married, was choosing an amazing photographer and I am so glad we found Shawna! To have the special memories she captured to pass along to our family and future generations, it means so much to me! From first meeting with her, to our engagement shoot, and then the big day, by the time Shawna left, it was like she was part of our family. She is such a kind hearted, down to earth, all around fantastic person! I received so many compliments from my bridal party and family about how amazing she was. The talent that she has is hands down phenomenal! If you are looking for a photographer, I would highly recommend Shawna Vine!"
"LOVE LOVE LOVE Shawna and her work!
Her work is nothing short of stunning. The beauty of her photos speak for themselves.
The real cherry on top though is Shawna herself... she's a remarkably fun, talented and charismatic human who was able to make me and my husband, who are very uncomfortable in front of a camera, feel like supermodels. She put us at ease, allowing her to capture the authentic and emotional photos that I love. She's also very organized and efficient which was awesome since I threw a LOT of family photos at her. Lastly, she was quick to respond to emails (even when she was on vacation in Ireland!) and made getting to know us a priority. She started the day as our photographer but by the end of the day she had also became a friend.
All-in-all, her presence on our wedding day was a gift to us and I would highly recommend Shawna to anyone looking for a great photographer!"
"We thankfully chose Shawna Vine Photography for our elopement photos and couldn't be happier with the photos we got. Shawna patiently went all over Grand Marais to get pictures in all the places we had in mind- always giving us great suggestions for poses that looked natural and adorable. Because we eloped we wanted our pictures to tell the story of our wedding day, and that's exactly what they did. She captured the intimate ceremony with all its emotions and excitement as well as the fun we had hiking around the woods and sitting on the beach. Each person we have shared our photos with has asked "who did your pictures? They are amazing" and we couldn't agree more. Thanks Shawna, you did a phenomenal job!"
"Shawna was our photographer for both our wedding and newborn photos. It was a pleasure working with her. She was very professional and captured many candid shots. She had a great attitide and our wedding party loved her. I would recommend Shawna to anyone in need of a photographer."
"Working with Shawna was such a wonderful experience. My husband and I chose Shawna to be our photographer for our wedding on Madeline Island based on the recommendation of a friend, and we are sure glad we did! Her positive energy and fun personality made it enjoyable for even the most camera shy people like us. Not only was she able to relax the group during posed pictures, but also had a way of capturing every individual and bringing out their true personality throughout the event. We couldn't believe how amazing the pictures turned out, and we truly thank Shawna for so beautifully documenting one of the most important days of our lives.
She went above and beyond all our expectations!"
