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.

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!

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!

I was honestly shocked by how good of an experience we had. No booking fee? Only paying for the photos you want? Sounds WAY too good to be true... We are SUPER impressed, and were so, so happy with our photographer!

Easy and simple booking. Our photographer was wonderful and so understanding of taking photos with three young kids. Quality of photos and editing was excellent. Definitely plan to book again with Shoott again!
