Parents of the Bride
Katie at Shani Studios photographed our daughters wedding. We have to say, she exceeded all our expectations!! She was so very professional, creative and personable.
She put our minds at ease by the ways she directed the families for the group shots while making it so much fun. She was able to take charge when needed but not be intrusive. She handled our roudy croud very well and did a fantastic job of capturing the moment, landscape and architecture in way we never would have imagined.
We would definately reccomend Shani Studios to all our friends and family for all of their photography needs!

A Puppy Named Salami
Katie is such an awesome photographer. She was extremely professional and friendly throughout the whole process. When we decided to have photos taken of our little puppy girl I was a bit worried that they wouldn’t turn out well since Salami is a rambunctious puppy who is always looking for something new to chase and explore. But Katie was so sweet with her and captured Salami’s personality perfectly! We couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.
We will definitely be reaching out to Katie for future projects and referring our friends to her as well.
I recommend Shani Studios for any occasion. I used them for my wedding & baby potraits. Katie is wonderful & can capture those special moments. She was so good & patient with my 5 month old. We had the session on a houseboat & the pictures turned out amazing!
She went above & beyond, not only to capture the moment but make us happy & satisfied as well. I would recommend her over & over. I definitely plan on using her again in the future. If you are looking for someone who cares & can create a fantastic image, Shani Studios is for you.

Katie and Shani Studios are amazing!! I had the pleasure to use some of Katie’s services for graphic design and photography. Every part of my experience with Katie exceeded each and every expectation. Even the one time she was going to be 4 minutes late, she called me 15 minutes in advance to warn me and apologize. Her level of customer service is rare and was greatly appreciated.
I originally met with Katie to design a new logo for my business. I am not an artistic person. But Katie was patient. PATIENT. She took the time to meet with me and listened to my vague and disorganized ideas, thoughts and concerns. She was able to take my chaotic stream of consciousness and come back with an artboard of various ideas. Each of the selections clearly demonstrated the theme, while still offered a diverse variety of options. From there, I gradually provided her [disorganized] feedback and thoughts, and Katie was able to take each of my opinions to continually evolve the design until I was completely satisfied and excited with the design. Since integrating the logo to my business, I have heard nothing but compliments regarding it.
I also used Katie’s services for a photo shoot in my office. Again, she was patient with me, creative with her suggestions for me, and helpful with her directions for me And the results were incredible! I’ve had a few professional shoots in the past, including headshots, but the photographs I received from this shoot were by far and away better. The quality of the photo, the focus of the photo and the overall detail of the photo were all better than any other professional shoot I’ve ever had in the past.
I would HIGHLY recommend Katie and Shani Studios to anyone look for a talented, reliable and professional photographer or graphic designer.
Katie at Shani Studios is by far the best photographer I have ever met! I started with their services for my maternity photos. Katie was patient with me, as I am a very paticular person and she made sure that I got every shot I wanted. Katie is also very creative and took photographs that are nothing short of amazing. I returned with my infant and again she was helpful and patient- working with a 5 month old as well as a 6 and 9 year old is definitely not easy! Shani Studios is like no other photographer- I will definitely be returning and sending all my friends to Katie!

I had the pleasure of working with Katie on a very last minute project. She was flexible, professional and wonderfully easy-going, even when the stress levels went up. And the photographs turned out perfectly! She really brought out the joy & fun in the people she was photographing, which is exactly what we were going for. Katie is hard working, creative and easy to work with. I will definately be hiring Katie & Shani Studios for future projects.

I saw the pictures on facebook and I was shocked. Never thought all those ugly guys could look so pretty on my screen…;) The pictures are absolutely fabulous! Arno said that on facebook you can say for each picture if I like it or not, to make clear wich ones I like the most. I’m not so strong on facebook that I actually found this option, so I can say I like ’em all! 😉
Second thing: my band 7th Street needs pictures. I can tell my bandmates and maybe we can plan a shoot!
I am sending this mail, because I want to thank you a lot for last Sunday. You made beautiful pictures and I had a great time with you guys, my brothers and “sisters”. I didn’t know my brother and I could be so good looking in pictures. So thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures, the nice experience and the fun in the dunes!

Our business was in need of a new company photo for our website. So we figured, “we can just do it ourselves!” Anyone can snap a picture, right? After a disastrous photo and a waste of our employee time, we decided we needed some professional help. Our website designer recommended Shani Studios.
Katie was great! She was very helpful in planning the day of the photo-shoot and worked around our company’s schedule. We are in construction and needed to get our workers out in the field, so Katie met with us early in the morning and was very prepared. She had us pose for both a group shot and then “headshots” of each staff member. She got the job done quicker than promised, and made sure to prioritize our staff headshots, so our crews could get to work.
She made our scruffy, rough and tumble group look very presentable, and I’m proud to have these photos on our new website.
She got the final work to us very quickly. I like that she emailed a proof as a single pdf file that showed the fifty or so different photos on one easy-to-scan document. It made it really quick and simple for us to choose our final photos.
Katie is very professional, easy to work with, talented and affordable. Thank you!
