Working with Shantha was absolutely lovely! My fiance and I are from Chicago, and from the minute I sent in a request she was kind, responsive, and committed to making sure we got what we were looking for. She put in lots of work before the shoot to get to know us, and make sure our style and vision was reflected in the photos. Working with her during the shoot was a dream. Shantha has a way of making you feel beautiful, comfortable, and capturing you at those perfect natural moments. Our entire experience working with Shantha was fantastic, I would highly recommend her to anyone. She really has a way with connecting with people, making you feel at ease, while capturing stunning photos. It is a dream come true to be able to have engagement photos in Paris, and Shantha made ever step of the process fun and enjoyable.

Hi Shantha! That was unexpectedly quick. WOW! We love the photos! We showed them to my family and they were very impressed. I have downloaded them to my computer and will be printing them soon.

Thank you so much for the pictures, they look great! We both loved it sooo much !!!
Also thank you for sending us so many, now the hard part is deciding which ones to print :)
Your work is awesome and so were you.
I will definitely keep your contact if we ever need a future photographer in Paris and also to recommend to any of our friends and family if they ever need.
Once again thank you so much for all your help and the beautiful photos!

I know am too late to write a review but better late than never. Our new year started with posing in front of your camera, not sure if it could have been better than that. It was raining like anything and trust me I wasn't expecting great pics but you managed to get amazing ones. I think its very important to be comfortable with the photographer when it's a couple photoshoot and you were best, felt like we all were long lost friends, chatting about everything.
Thank you for the memories and its not an exaggeration when I say we aren't best looking couple but you somehow managed to make us look good.

Shantha is an absolute rock star!
My husband and I met Shantha during our engagement photo shoot and she made it a fantastic experience - the quality of the photos was great and she managed to grasp the moments. We decided to invite Shantha to be part of the photography team and shoot our wedding.
Shantha is very professional, punctual, flexible and reliable, treating the customer with care and respect. The images were very beautiful and sensual, she grasped the mood at the wedding and captured all the key moments down to the tiniest detail - her signature is definitely catching the emotions!
Moreover, Shantha's fun personality contributed to a great and positive atmosphere!
Overall, Shantha's work exceeded our expectations, we were very happy with the service and the final product, and we were delighted to have her as our photographer! She helped us make an unforgettable worry-free wedding day! A heartfelt Thank You from us, we will see you again!

The pictures are beautiful and amazing. We love them. We want to thank you sooo much for capturing this special moment for us. I will highly recommend you to anyone else who is interested in photographing their events. Do you have a website I can write a positive review for you?
"You captured us in great moments even with the tough weather! I also thought that you were well prepared and accommodating. For example, you brought Tsubomi the portable pop up for changing clothes.
I would absolutely recommend your service to friends and family. I would say that they will be guaranteed great photos at a great price and tons of fun taking the photo."

We booked Shanta to shoot our wedding this summer at the Shangri-La Hotel in Paris. She reached out in advance to ask questions about our relationship and to discuss what we wanted as related to photography. She was very professional and arrived on time on the big day (which was already an accomplishment as there was a major parade in Paris that day which created massive traffic delays throughout the city). In the time before the ceremony, as we scrambled around with guests and last minute details, Shanta took the initiative to shoot a bunch of shots around the venue (including our rings, cake, programs, parents, etc). She gave good direction to help with our poses and worked well with the videographer we hired separately. Throughout the day she maintained a very professional and pleasant demeanor. In the end, the photos turned out GREAT and we were really impressed by the fact that Shanta gave us more shots than we'd contracted her for. Throughout the process she was very responsive to our email inquiries and requests. We'd HIGHLY recommend Shanta for your wedding, vow renewal or any special event in Paris.

For 20 years I had been dreaming of traveling to Paris and decided to commemorate the trip by hiring a photographer. From start to finish Shantha was amazing. She and I talked beforehand about my vision (which was Audry Hepburn meets Paris), the locations that would be beautiful backdrops, and the clothing and props I would want to bring. I had such a good experience planning with her which could have been scary considering I was planning it from the USA. Shantha made it fun and easy. The day of the shoot came and it was everything I hoped it would be and then some. I now have the best souvenirs to show of a city I love and memories I will never forget. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, beautiful, and professional photoshoot in Paris. You will be so happy you did!

It has been such a pleasure working with Shantha, for our 10 year wedding anniversary photoshoot. My husband and I had such a great experience, her recommendations, creativity, and efficiency is a 10++. Her communication from beginning to end is very thorough and she answered all of our questions very quickly. I loved working with her. Our photo session was at 6am, which was a bit of a struggle to wake up, but well worth it. The final product of our photos was outstanding no people in the background and the lighting was great. I highly recommend Shantha for any special moments you want to make last forever! Thank you again Shantha we had so much fun and our pictures turned out perfect!

We booked Shantha upon a friend's recommendation and we were extremely happy with her work. Shantha is very passionate, patient and brings the best out of you. Though the shoot was scheduled for one hour, she went well over the time to ensure a variety of poses were captured. Overall, we highly recommend Shantha to anyone looking for a photoshoot.

Shantha was excellent working with our family, which included a 5 and 8 year old who woke up extra early for a photo shoot. Our kids quickly warmed up to her and we were very happy with our photos. Highly recommended.

Shantha was a pleasure to work with. She shot our engagement photos while visiting Paris and did a wonderful job. She took us to the perfect spots all with beautiful views. We've gotten so many compliments on our Paris shots already. I really liked how she took us to numerous close by locations to add variety. Highly recommend working with her. :)

Thank you Shantha! Sunny and I love the pictures and have had such a tough time deciding which ones to use! Thank you for working with our tight schedule and for your guidance/patience throughout the process from location recommendations to the extra time to get warm! Such amazing work and great memories for us!
— sunny & Kavita, FEB 11, 2017
At last we have these pictures and we can't put it in words how wonderful they are.
You're a super super great photographer, very creative, imaginative. Your great ideas and poses were fun. We felt so comfortable and now we hold these pictures in our hands and still can not believe it.
I hope we will see each other again.
We will definitely book again a photoshoot with you. It is worth it. Thank you again for everything. For your effort and for your fast work. Keep going so Shantha. I love it.
— Christina & Corc, May 09, 2017
Thank you so much for capturing such beautiful images for us. We love them and are so happy with the way they turned out! It was truly a pleasure to work with you. The kids had a blast and they said you were so nice.

My friends were very impressed by the photoshoot and some even said that we looked like we did the shoot for Korean drama.
I really love Shantha's photography style - it gives out the romantic Parisian feel.
I did not even have to recommend Shantha to my friends. My friends who planned to go to Paris asked for my photographer's contact right after seeing my photos.
I was highly recommended to Shantha by another Paris photographer. Shantha was very professional, she was taking a risk (just recovering from a surgery), and with a lot of physical pain. She was still able to capture many beautiful moments in pictures. My husband and I were so thankful for her great service!
"We love the photos. Words can not express how much we appreciate you did the photoshoot for us."
