Shaq was absolutely amazing for our engagement photo shoot!! He made our special day even better! He took wonderful photos, was very friendly and easy to work with, showed up to the proposal spot well in advance of when I planned to be there and overall was a lot of fun to work with. I would highly recommend Shaq for any photo shoots you have coming up!

When I had booking issues with a previous photographer I was stressed that I wouldn’t be able to find a quality photographer on such short notice. I’m so glad I found Shaq! We were unfamiliar with the area so he was able to recommend a location for our family Christmas card portrait based upon what I wanted. We’ve worked with multiple photographers in the past and were impressed that he was able to fit us into his schedule on such short notice, the quality equipment that he used, and most importantly the quality of the photographs! The lighting and colors are perfect and the turnaround in getting our pictures back was the fastest we’ve ever had. We’d definitely book with him again!

Details: Glamour • Outdoors • 2 - 5 people • No outfit changes • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

Need a photographer, look no further than Shutter Shaq Photography, LLC! Two weeks before a family member's milestone birthday I looked on Thumbstack for a photographer. I reached out to three available photographers and choose Shaq and that was the right choice. Shaq was very responsive, professional, and punctual. Shaq has a great deposition and was easy to interact with. I received the pictures when Shaq said I'd receive them. I had a smile on my face the entire time I looked at them. More importantly, the birthday lady loved the pictures that captured the memories of her special day!

Details: Birthday party • 50 - 99 guests • Indoors • Digital or online download

I can’t recommend Shaq enough! Where do I start. 100% book him as a photographer. My experience from beginning to end with Shutter Shaq Photography was excellent. Absolutely faultless. I’m Irish and Dublin is 5 hours ahead of New York, but no matter the time of day I messaged Shaq he was promptly replying. I got in touch to help organise a surprise photo capture of a proposal in NYC. At that time I didn’t know exactly where I wanted to propose to my girlfriend. Straight away Shaq was helpful in narrowing down a location and identifying the best timings for optimum light and to avoid some of the usual NYC crowds. He helped plan, organise and keep my now fiancé out for the loop until I got down on one knee. He found the perfect spot and our photos turned out amazing. Can’t thank you enough for capturing the happiest day of my life.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First I ask them what the event is, and how many people are included. This helps me gauge just how many moving pieces are involved. Then, particularly if it’s an event, engagement, or wedding, I ask what are the huge milestones or checkpoints that are important to them. Not only does this key me in on what to take note of, but it lets me know what’s important to my client and what I should create and capture with my images. Once we run through the scenario, I look for any potential gaps or items to consider for the execution. For example, if it’s a surprise outdoor engagement, maybe a contingency should be considered in the event we have inclement weather that day, or if it’s super overcast and a sunset image is desired in the background. This step is crucial for me, as I consult with my client to ensure they aren’t stressed with the intricacies. The more we discuss in the beginning, the more prepared and in-sync we’ll be— and ultimately, satisfied my client will be with the images.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My first exposure to a real camera was on a study abroad trip in high school. My friend at the time let me be their personal photographer and I was intrigued with how the DSLR worked. I’ll never forget how interested and invested I was, because I just simply wanted to know how the camera worked. Fast forward through the years and my love for photography was touch and go as the tech evolved. Once I was able to afford a serious camera, I did so and then eventually committed to making a business out of it. Seeing my clients’ joy as they review the images I’ve captured for them brings me joy. There’s just something about producing something that others can consume and invoke a positive response.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Small business owners in need of images for social media content/brand recognition, newly engaged couples, families and individuals in need of portraits/headshots for various reasons.
