Client Reviews



Mother and baby in matching yellow outfits pose on the beach for their free outdoor photoshoot
Yvonne

Alviso Marina County Park, San Diego

Flawless process and I absolutely love our pictures. Our photographer made the shooting experience really care-free and easy and we had such a variety of shots--way more than I was expecting for a 30-minute session. Overall a great experience!

This was hands down our best experience ever... The booking and shooting experience was easy and the purchase of photos was seamless. We will definitely be using Shoott again in the near future!

Misty

Harborwalk, Boston

We had such a wonderful experience with our photographer...We ended up purchasing the entire gallery (we loved them all!), but we like that there was an option to just select ones we wanted. We will definitely be using this service again. Thank you Shoott Team!

Downtown Riverwalk, Chicago

We used Shoott for my son’s Senior portraits. It was a great experience, we will totally use Shoott again in the future! So easy to schedule, great photographer, fast turn on the photos and a super-simple website to navigate.

I loved everything about this process! I made a very last minute decision to get maternity photos and I’m SO glad I did!...They produced beautiful photos of my final pregnancy that I will cherish forever. Thank you!

Joshua

Gallup Park, Detroit-Ann Arbor

We are incredibly awkward people, but our photographer made us feel pretty comfortable for our shoot. The process and the low-pressure of not needing to purchase anything until we saw the shots was just what we were looking for!
