About Me

I purchased my first camera right out of high school in 2004. I learned everything I could, even posted my photos to forums to see if I could learn more. I took the camera to Europe, and made some amazing images even at young age. Photography has always been a passion of mine. It took me many years to realize, that my hobby of photography has become something could not quit thinking about, so I made it a business in 2011. What I look forward to the most, is delivering the images. I know that the time and energy I spent obsessing about lighting and composition, and the years I spent educating myself from books and workshops from the best of the best in the industry, are something I can be truly proud about when my clients see their images for the first time. Today I specialize in weddings. I chose wedding because I believe weddings are truly special. Every wedding has love, laughter and happiness; there is a beauty to them. My philosophy with wedding photography is simple. Shoot a wedding in the way I would want my own to be treated, never cut corners and go above and beyond whenever possible. I know these photos will be treasured as a family heirloom for generations. There is no room for error and no excuse for it to be nothing but my best work. Weddings are my full time job, and I believe my clients deserve nothing but the best. I never bring anything less than top of the line equipment. I ensure no matter how bad the lighting situation is, I will have a solution to make it beautiful. I learned how to light from the leading photographers in the industry and I have even taught lighting to other professionals. If you are my client, you can ask me any question regarding your wedding I will be happy to answer. I have been to many weddings and would not mind sharing some insight on what I have learned over the years. I have many ideas, and I hope this guide will help you through the process of planning your wedding.

Sincerely,

Genaro Shaffer
