Real Client Reviews

So what do people have to say about Jeremiah once their big day is all over? Have a look below.
These are all real client reviews

"My wife and I are from Indiana. In December of 2015 I took her to NY for her first time. I proposed in Central Park. We took our time deciding where we wanted to be married and Central Park was our obvious choice. While we were planning, we found what we thought was a good package, wedding planner, officiant, location, hotel etc. Then came the photographer. We were given 5 choices. My wife was going through it and started showing me some of the photos and I said THATS the photographer we want! She giggled and said "I knew you would say that, check out his last name". It was the same as ours! It was fate I told her. We immediately notified the wedding planner and Jeremiah reached out to us. 
This is where we fell in love with this guy. He was just as excited, if not more than we were. The wedding package included 1 hour. Time went by so fast, more so because my bride was 20 min late to our wedding.
Jeremiah researched all of the locations we mentioned to him prior to the wedding, found more locations he thought would be great and we made it to every single one of them in an HOUR, or so I thought. Nearly 3 hours Jeremiah spent with us and he was honestly our favorite part of the whole day. He soaked up all of our stress (trust me, a lot of stress comes with coming from Indiana, and ALL of your guests are from all over the country) and made us relax, made us comfortable and was able to get the most amazing photos of our day. To top off the whole day, before he reluctantly left us, he told us how much he enjoyed his time with us and his first wedding shoot in Central Park! What!??!?!?!? We could NOT believe it was his first shoot in Central Park. He truly made us feel like he was part of our family, not just because he is a Shaffer, but because in a city of 8.5 million people, on our day (09.22.2018), we were the only 2 people in NY that mattered to him."

"I can’t say enough positive things about Jeremiah and his assistant photographer, Cody. It needs to be mentioned that Jeremiah was one of our groomsmen, too, and he managed to pull off both roles as groomsman and photographer. I honestly don’t know how he did it but he was fantastic. About a week before the wedding, Jeremiah knew my stress about the inclement weather (100% chance of rain with flash flood warnings throughout the region πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) and he also knew how important these pictures were to us. He reassured me that, regardless of how horrible the weather would be, we would get some amazing pictures to capture that day and he was absolutely right. During our first look photos, the rain stopped and we all ran outside for Jeremiah and Cody to take the most gorgeous pictures I have ever seen. When he showed me some of the photos in the bridal suite I literally cried because they were more beautiful than I had imagined. Jeremiah and Cody had us laughing all night and they were truly so much fun to work with. I haven’t seen all of the photos yet but I already know they’re stunning because Jeremiah and Cody are so talented. If I had to pick a photographer again for another event, I would choose Jeremiah in a heartbeat. I will be sure to tell everyone I know about his photography. Thank you times a million. You’re the best."

"Okay, I'm sure you're here reading review after review of different photographers, feeling slightly overwhelmed with the vast amount of professionals you can hire for your special day. I was there, I know. However, I'm here to tell you that you can stop looking now - because you've found him. My husband and I met Jeremiah the photographer in a coffee shop. We quickly decided that no one else could photograph our day. Then, we met up with Jeremiah the cool-guy-who-also-happens-to-take-our-photos for our amazing engagement photos. We climbed down in moats, we were stuck under an abandoned concession stand for over an hour while it down poured like no other, we laughed, we huddled together and watched the weather app, but we mostly importantly had the best time and got AMAZING photos. Then on a rainy-turned-ungodly-humid August day, Jeremiah, our friend, photographed one of the best days of our lives in ways that I truly believe no one else could. We genuinely felt relaxed around Jeremiah and I think that's what made these photos so natural, which is exactly what we were looking for from day one. When your photographer is approached more than once at your reception by guests saying how much they've heard about him, you know you've found your lifelong photographer. Jeremiah could not have been more accommodating, he's easy to work with, fun, super efficient and really did become a friend during a really exciting time of our lives. Our photos are beautiful and really capture our relationship and our love. Jeremiah, our gratitude is endless. We'll treasure these photos always."

"I don't even know how to start my review on Jeremiah because I don't think there are any amount of words I could write out to you all to understand just how amazing he is. From the moment we meet Jeremiah I knew he was our guy, I don't know how to explain it. Our connection, how easy going he was and right off the bat you could see how passionate he is about his job. He made us feel so comfortable, he knew what he was talking about and gave us plenty of time to hear what we wanted. Our engagement shoot was perfect! I know some people don't like to take photos or smile or pose and that is my husband. Jeremiah knew how to make us laugh, relax, be comfortable and overcome how some times it's super awkward to have someone take your photos. I wanted to surprise my mother with photos at my deceased grandmothers home and Jeremiah had no issue with quickly meeting us for 10 minutes at a complete strangers home before our engagement shoot started. That right there is something I can never ever repay him for, to have pictures of my husband and I at a house where myself and our family grew up is so special and something not ever photographer is okay with adding on. Then our big day came and boy is Jeremiah is on top of his game from fixing ceremony decorations to coming in and helping us hang up bridesmaid dresses to just being there to make sure we are on schedule. He wanted a list before hand of every picture I wanted which is a life saver because half of the photos I probably would have never gotten if it wasn't for that list to remind us. He knows how to make people laugh and be more natural with your photos. Again my husband was so not looking forward to an hour of photos before cocktail hour but Jeremiah was patient and full of amazing ideas for our cool ceremony location. I texted Jeremiah the next because I just wanted to thank him one more time and I wanted him to know he is more then just the guy behind the camera! Thank you again so much Jeremiah! Love the Watson’s !"

"Honestly, Jeremiah is the BEST!!! I really cannot say enough nice things about him. As a photographer his photos are stunning and as person his personality made being photographed feel completely natural and effortless. He went way above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our wedding day. During our reception he was ready to display a photo slideshow of our fist look and ceremony at our dj booth, something we were not expecting! He is an absolute professional and every interaction we had with Jeremiah was a pleasure. He went the extra mile with everything, even helping with a last-minute dress crisis! Thank you SO much for everything! We cannot wait to see the rest of our photographs."

"Jeremiah was the photographer for our New York wedding this past September. From the first meeting we had with him, we knew he was going to be awesome to work with. Jeremiah’s photography packages are very fairly priced, and a steal when you consider the caliber of his photography. From our first meeting, to the engagement shoot (free!), to our big day, he was always super helpful and made sure that things were going the way we wanted them to. On our wedding day Jeremiah and his assistant were very helpful and it felt like we were old friends. He was even able to Air Drop a few photos right to my phone before our reception even started! I cannot recommend his photography enough, use Jeremiah Shaffer for your wedding photography and you will not regret it!"

"Words can not express how wonderful it was to work with Jeremiah. We knew as soon as we met him that he would be the perfect photographer to capture the special moments of our big day...he did just that and so much more! Jeremiah always made sure we were comfortable and enjoying our day. He was friendly and laid back with our bridal party and worked so well with our other vendors. If you are looking for gorgeous, natural photos that truly capture the love and happiness you share with your husband/wife on your wedding day ....Jeremiah is your guy! He is an incredible photographer and person!"

-Nicole Zippo, client

"I had a wonderful experience working with Jeremiah from start to finish! His photographs and style really caught my eye. There was something about it that in my opinion really stood out from all of the other photographers I met with. I contacted him immediately after seeing his work to set up an in person meeting where he walked my parents and I through his work style and showed us a plethora of photos from previous weddings he shot. We were so impressed and knew he would be a great fit to photograph our wedding. Throughout the time leading up to our wedding Jeremiah was super responsive and answered any and all questions very quickly. My husband and I lived very far away from Jeremiah so he even accommodated us by having Skype sessions to help ease our nerves. On our wedding day he was super professional and flexible. He wanted us to have fun and bent over backwards to make sure we were concentrating on that while he worked his magic. Again, we have nothing but great things to say about the final product. He sent us our images in an online gallery where we can relive our wedding from beginning to end. The photos are stunning and exactly what we expected. He captured so many candid moments that I know we will look back on for a lifetime. I would highly recommend Jeremiah as a wedding photographer"

"Where do I begin? Jeremiah photographed our engagement photos and they came out perfect. He had so many great ideas around our engagement spot and they came out breathtaking. Our wedding day, I will never forget when Jeremiah said to me "take your time, this is your day" and in that moment I took a deep breath and walked out to marry the man of my dreams. He let me see sneak peaks of shots that he took and I fell in love with all of them of course. He was so, so helpful and great with our families and friends. What I love about Jeremiah most is not only is his work great, but he is a great family man. He has a newborn baby and still made the time to make sure our day was picture perfect. We Thank you for everything Jeremiah!!!"

"When searching for a wedding photographer it's easy to get overwhelmed with finding the perfect one to capture your day. When we stumbled upon Jeremiah on Facebook we immediately reached out to meet with him because of the beautiful photos he had taken at our venue for another wedding. Within minutes of meeting him, we knew he had every element we wanted in a photographer. He was such a cool, down to earth guy with an unbelievable vision and talent for capturing unique and beautiful wedding photos. His ideas were almost endless and we were truly in awe of his creativity throughout our wedding day. He made us and all of our guests feel so comfortable and happy, all because of his fun and positive attitude. He truly cared about making our day special and ensured we got every shot we wanted. While we couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding day, we know we also couldn't have imagined a more perfect photographer. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, you will never look back and gain a great friend in the process. Thank you again Jeremiah!"

"We had such a wonderful experience working with Jeremiah Shaffer for our August 27th wedding. We would really like to take the time to adequately describe his professionalism, photography skill, and all around humor. Firstly, he is such a kind and caring person as well as a light hearted jokester. He was a calming presence during our stressful wedding day. He arrived on time, dressed professionally, and was never anyone's way... There were even times where we didn't even realize he was there. As he quietly worked in the background, he would also gently suggest a photo where he saw the opportunity. He was never pushy or posed us awkwardly and would even show us previews of shots he was particularly excited about. This was important to us because awkwardness really does show up in your wedding pictures. He worked seamlessly with our videographer, church coordinator, DJ/ host, and event staff; and he constantly made sure we were not running late. His excitement to capture the moment for us is contagious; he is truly passionate for his profession. There are honestly not enough words we can use to express our appreciation for him during our wedding day and throughout the planning process. We are so lucky to have him be a part of our special day!!"

"Hey Jeremiah, I just wanted to take a second to let you know that not only are we so excited for working with you in the future, but you've made me the most relaxed and comfortable that any wedding associated professional has. I can't stop telling people about how excited I am to work with you! If anyone needs a photographer for anything PLEASE contact him. His work is crisp, original, and each photo you can tell how much work he puts behind making it perfect; and not only that in the two times meeting him, he was down to earth, funny, and he seemed like more of a friend or family member not just a business photographer! I'm counting the days until our engagement shoot !! Thank you again so much!"

-Kelly Dodd, client

"The only way I can describe our experience with Jeremiah is it was Perfect. He was recommended from another photographer that was not available on our wedding date. As soon as we met up with him we had no hesitation to book him. Jeremiah took time to get to know our photography style preferences and ask a bunch of questions to make sure we got what we were looking for. Engagement photos were included and this was a great way for us to all “practice” before the big day. He made my husband feel super comfortable in front of the camera and by our wedding day it was effortless. On the day of the wedding Jeremiah made sure to check in with me countless times. During the ceremony I never even felt his presence, but from the teaser pictures I know he was there! During the cocktail hour and reception my friends and I joked that he was like a ninja- everywhere and nowhere all at the same time. He captured everything but wasn’t hovering. Best part- the next day we had 8 photos from our first look and ceremony and everyone of them is incredible! Our wedding officiant added in a follow-up email “By the way, your photographer was great to work with! Very personable... unobtrusive.” I cannot wait to book Jeremiah the next time we need photos, and I would highly recommend him for your wedding day."

-Ashley Oettinger, client

 

"Jeremiah did our wedding in October and we were very pleased with everything. He was on time, very professional, and always seemed to be in the right spot at the right time to capture some great candid shots. We highly recommend him if you are looking for a photographer for your event."

-Paul Luizza, client

 

"I would like to give a HUGE shoutout to my childhood friend and hands down the greatest photographer that I know! Thank you, Jeremiah Shaffer and The Photography Of Jeremiah Shaffer for an amazing photo shoot today, and thanks for toughing out the cold with us!"

- Shawn Harrison, client

 

"Words can not describe what a memorable day October 5th 2013 was for us. With that said I will try and do my best. In my memory alone, I can not recall a time before that day in which I felt so over joyed with emotions of love and genuine happiness. I literally felt as if i floated through the day taking in every moment trying to not let anything slip away from my minds grasp. Last week my husband and I received our wedding album. Just when I thought I could not forget a moment from our special day I immediately noticed how wrong I was.As we flipped through we were amazed by what Jeremiah was able to capture. I remember Jeremiah's finesse and outgoing personality while we went throughout our day. I remember thinking, "I wonder if he sees this day as I do."He did. Better than I could have imagined. I thought I remembered every detail but what came through in our album was truly special. Candids of the day made me realize that I wasn't able to be everywhere all of the time. That other moments, special moments were happening even when we were not present. The gift he possess is outstanding and I am so happy to have these memories documented. My mind alone would never have caught the memories Jeremiahs' abilities were able to. I can not wait for another special event to see our memories through Jeremiah's eyes. ~So Grateful"

"Jeremiah is a very professional and very accomodating photographer! This was my second wedding and he was able to re-create a picture from 17 years ago at my previous wedding - I can't tell you how happy I was. During the ceremony and rest of the wedding you barely noticed he was there and taking pictures but when the pictures came back I was so thrilled to see that he captured the day perfectly. I can't recommend

him enough!!!"

- Kerri Lambertus, client

 

"My husband and I would like to thank The Photography Of Jeremiah Shaffer, for doing such a fabulous job with our photos. Our son, who wasn't even 4 months at the time, was a little cranky during our shoot. Despite this, Jeremiah was able to capture some great photos of our family. He was very patient and professional the entire time. The colors are absolutely stunning in our photos! I have already asked Jeremiah to keep a date open in June for our son's first birthday shoot. We would definitely recommend Jeremiah to anyone looking to capture some great shots of their family!

Thank you, Jeremiah!"

- Evelyn Brennie, client

 

"Just received my daughter's photos from her photo shoot a couple of weeks ago. Thanks, Jeremiah, you did a spectacular job. Catching a 9 year old doing her Tae Kwon Do moves can't be the easiest task, but you pulled it off. Not only did you get her to feel comfortable in front of the camera, you captured her at her best! I can't wait to show these off!!!"

- Cathy Buckley, client

 

"I just want to share my thoughts with Jeremiah Shaffer and any one who would be considering his professional services.... My children surprised me with "wedding photos" as our gift from them. I was excited & apprehensive all at the same time. Who was this guy coming to photograph us on our special day? Well... this "guy" turned out to be the sweetest, most polite, professional photographer I have ever met. I felt totally comfortable with Jeremiah. He put everyone at ease while doing his thing and just became one of the family for the day! How cool is that?! I would highly recommend him for any event you might be needing a great photographer for. So, a great BIG THANK YOU to The Photography of Jeremiah Shaffer for making our wedding day one we will never forget!"

"As a disc jockey in the Valley for decades, I can honestly say Jeremiah's work brings a fresh approach to the world of photography. I am in awe."

- DJ Krista - Hudson Valley Wedding DJ

 

"Jeremiah Shaffer is simply one of the best artists I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He brings a discerning eye and intense creativity to the table, regardless of what project he's involved with. Perhaps most importantly, he is extremely reliable. Jeremiah sees every project through to completion and makes sure that his work meets the demands of his clients in regards to quality and schedules. Jeremiah has been my go-to guy for years when it comes to my music career. He's handled promo shots, web site design, and album artwork design and layout for all of my musical endeavors. I'd say he's a jack-of-all-trades, but his suit is much higher ranking than "jack." Ace of all trades? You bet. "
