We had an amazing experience with Shuttered Light Photography. I considered photography to be the most important part of my wedding so I spent A LOT of time looking through different vendors. Ultimately, I picked the team that had the best quality for the best price AND they were very easy to work with. They answer questions immediately, work with top quality equipment and they’re just overall fun and easy going people. A lot of these other teams were pushy and intimidating but we got along with Richard and Robbie instantly! They will cater to all your needs and deliver amazing photos. They made us look like
models and the albums we received were breathtaking. I was worried because they do a lot of outdoor weddings, and mine was a big middle eastern indoor event. They know how to work in both environments and all types of lighting. Our photos turned out amazing and were given to us in less than 3 months from the wedding day. Some people have to wait a year to get their albums and videos. I am really happy I chose Shuttered Light Photography and I can’t thank them enough!

Richard & Robbie Fadera and their team of professionals went BEYOND all expectations. I cannot express enough how grateful my husband and I are to have had them as our photographers/videographers.

From the very first day of meeting with them, they were personable, accommodating and knowledgeable. They were understanding, and never once pushed anything extra on us that we didn't want. They helped us customize a package and were in contact with us constantly, very reassuring. They listened to every idea we had, and worked with us to create an amazing engagement session and video.

On the day of the wedding, I could not have been happier to have them there. The entire photography and videography did so much more than what is asked of a photographer. From running around and helping us get some extremely last minute and forgotten items, to guiding the entire wedding party down to the aisle! So many friends and family at the wedding commented on how amazing our photographers are. They did absolutely everything in their power to ensure that our photos looked great. From climbing up a ladder to get the perfect angle, to squeezing in tight spots to get a shot but remain unseen. They ate so quickly and returned back to shooting, I'm both shocked at their endurance and grateful for it.

The wedding itself went by so quickly. What was really several hours, felt like just 40 minutes. This is why photographers and videographers are so important. Being able to show my future kids a picture of family and friends. Playing a video of my grandparents and parents saying "I love you", long after they've gone. This is what Richard, Robbie and their team gave me, and I'm forever grateful for it.

So if you're doing the photographer search dance like I was, read this review and take it to heart. You want a great team by your side that day, and these guys are it.

We had our church wedding on September 12, 2015 and it was a truly magnificent event filled with warm memories that will last our entire lives. I am happy to say that we’re currently living in a time where technology, plus great talent and skill from our photographers and videographers, can make those memories as clear as it gets. If you guys can access our photos and video through Vimeo, I think the results speak for themselves. But what I would like to talk about in this review is how they are when you work with them.

Richard and Robbie seem to have this great understanding of their craft and as a team they have great chemistry together. During our video and photo shoots they were very accurate with what they wanted us to do and what they were wanting us to portray. Going through it I felt like I had a greater appreciation for photography, as they opened up various options on how to make the beach setting an incredible spot for the photo shoot, using various locations in the area, lighting techniques and especially impeccable timing to take the right shots. Again, the results were amazing.

But more than just the amazing results I would say, was my enjoyment of working with Richard and Robbie. They are a blast to work with! They are both kind, fun-loving, and easy to communicate with, and that’s what made the process very smooth and for a bride and groom who is already stressed by everything else, the photo shoot was definitely a stress reliever more than anything.

And the video, well the same day edit that we did just totally knocked the socks off of our attendees, because they didn’t expect it coming. After all the events of the day, Robbie, with probably just a few hours to do it and with that brilliant mind of his, was able to create such a stunning 3 minute video that as far as I know has gathered thousands of views on Vimeo (which means a lot of people pressed the repeat button, it was that good).

If you’re looking for a great team who will give you a fun enjoyable time doing a photo or video shoot for your wedding, who will produce results and like I said make those memories last forever, don’t think twice and choose these two amazing brothers and their team.

I highly recommend using Shuttered Light for Photography and Videography. Their high quality photos and videos really capture the moments that you wish could last forever. After the big day is all said and done, the memories are still able to live on because of how well Richard and his crew are able to catch every detail which creates the special, candid moments. Shuttered Light did a great job creating our highlight video, and now all of our friends want to use their services when their wedding day comes in the future.
They also did a great job of getting our photos and highlight video back to us in just about two weeks.

We could not have imagined a better team for Josh and myself on our wedding day, than Shuttered Light. Richard, Robbie, Amanda, and Ilgar were amazing and more than what I could have hoped for in our photo/video team. The photo and video were two very important aspects to us for the wedding, maybe even a little more than the location! We looked long and hard at different options, and even before getting hired, Richard was always available to answer questions and clear any of our hesitations.

We booked Shuttered Light for photo and video, for 3 days and an engagement shoot. We were feeling a little awkward in the beginning of the engagement shoot, but Richard and Robbie made it so much fun, it felt like we were just hanging out! I expressed some specific concerns for the first look, and the entire team was so involved in making it happen. Our guests/vendors complimented our photo and video team over and over again, and they really worked to capture every moment perfectly. We love all of our wedding photos, and really appreciated their good energy and cooperation on the day of our wedding day :)
