Client Reviews

Pregnant woman wearing a green dress and flower crown smiles for her free outdoor maternity photoshoot

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!

Downtown Seattle, Seattle

Everything about this experience was professional, comfortable, and SO EASY. As a former wedding photographer, I know how hard it can be to shoot a client you just met, with a pet, in a tight time window. Icepong was welcoming, professional, and I had a lot of fun shooting. The final products are so much more me than almost any photos I have.

Man dips woman in nature preserve for their free outdoor couple photoshoot

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!

Smiling family throws leaves for their free outdoor fall photoshoot

Minnehaha National Park, Minneapolis-Saint Paul

We had a very wonderful time with our photographer! She made us feel so comfortable during the session... She assisted us for the posture, the location, and overall, it was a great experience. Thanks to her and Shoott to make this possible.

I LOVE this service! Easy, good locations, access to photos quickly! I have already told so many of my friends about this and plan on booking all my photos through Shoott! Our photographer was great as well.
