Shadi Ameri Photography Reviews

Ryan Castro 5 weeks ago

Shadi is an incredibly talented photographer. I hired her for my first ever photo shoot. Shadi was so helpful in every step of the process. She provided some helpful advice on what outfits to bring. During the shoot, she was great in getting me comfortable and to get me in the poses that fit me best. I was so happy with how the photos turned out. My mom loved them and even hung the prints around her home.

Working with shadi was a great experience. I needed professionl portraits for my personal branding for the longest time but hve been postponing it until my friend referred Shadi to me . She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and took the best pictures of my life. She relly knows how to bring out your personality . I highly recommend her.

My review is long overdue, however it's never too late. I hired Shadi for my wedding photography, and I am very happy with my decision. Knowing that it's only one day in your life it's a huge responsibility to take on and Shadi gracefully took it. She was professional and very kind and attentive during the day. Knowing how stressed I was she suggested poses or even asked for my opinion about how I would like it. Not many photographers took upon themselves to hear let alone ask for suggestions. Shadi didn't take long to get the pictures to me. And she was again very friendly and professional in asking if I liked them or if I wanted to change anything about it. I only had to ask her to change one of my pictures for me just because I didn't like the way my eyes looked like, she had no problem with fixing it! For people who want good quality, professional and economical photographer for their big day I suggest Shadi. She is remarkable and I wish her all the best and success in the future.

Shadi has the best personality and makes you feel extra comfortable when you shoot with her. Not only do you fall in love with her photos but you fall in love with the experience. I highly recommend Shadi Ameri for all of your special moments.

This review is long overdue and honestly what I write here will probably not do Shadi's work justice. I have shot with many photographers, including Shadi a few times, and I must say after my session/photos with Shadi I have never looked for another photographer nor recommend another one to my family and friends. Shadi has mastered the art of photography! She has an eye for detail/angles and will capture moments that you have a hard time believing is real. You can see the passion in her eyes and in the way she approaches her work. She's a professional and will put in the effort to make this as an amazing experience for you as it is for her! You will truly be amazed with your photos, I genuinely loved every single shot that she took of me. Not to mention, she so fun to be around! :) that's always an added bonus in every person you hire. She will make you feel at ease, she's super friendly and you will have overall postivie experience. I HIGHLY recommend Shadi, she will exceed your expectations on every level! p.s. you know someone is a great photographer when you hand them your cell phone to take a picture of you and it turns out to be the one of the best photos you've ever taken! I am not kidding, this really happened. Thank you Shadi for always giving me a great experience and top notch photos!! :)

Shadi is by far the best professional photographer I have worked with. She has a unique vision that she brings to life with her photography skills. I am SO PLEASED with the pictures she captured. I absolutely enjoyed working with her and would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone for any kind of photography needs.

Shadi is AMAZING!!! I was in need of professional headshots and graduation pictures with only a 2 week window to have the photoshoot. I decided to contact Shadi after she was recommended to me by a friend. I sent her a detailed email explaining what I wanted for my shoot and within a day or two she followed up via phone and email. During our consultation, I provided her with examples of the poses/style I wanted to shoot and she thoroughly explained the services and photo packages she provided. My ultimate concern was pricing but Shadi had a package within my budget. The photoshoot session was fun and went smoothly. Shadi made sure I was relaxed and comfortable. She provided instruction for posing during the shoot and made sure to take pictures in the poses I requested. At the beginning of the shoot I mentioned I have curly hair and never wear it straight and was concerned about my hair cooperating during the shoot. Shadi gave me a heads up when my hair was starting to frizz or was out of place. The fact that she actually cared to be aware of my hair meant a great deal to me. The proofs from the shoot were available less than a week after the shoot day. Shadi took soooo many great pictures during the session that it was hard to narrow them down for my package. I can't wait to get my edited photos back! You cannot go wrong with Shadi. She is professional, talented, personable and takes great pictures. I will definitely keep her in mind for future photography needs.

Shadi is not the cheapest photographer in SD. However, she is worth EVERY PENNY. My jaw dropped when I saw my boudoir photos! Bonus: she made every effort to make me feel right at home hanging out with her in a fancy hotel room in my skivvies! It turned out to be an empowering and FUN experience! Thanks, Shadi! I will definitely hire you again!

We used Shadi Ameri Photography for my daughter baby shower and we were all very pleased with all the pictures. She did an amazing job. She has taken couple of my picture in few other events and they were excellent. I would definitely refer her to my friends and family.

Shadi's skills in catching the right light and right moment we're spot on! She was thoroughly prepared with poses and locations within balboa park where we had our engagement shoot. She was also un bothered by the amount of traffic passing through just about every spot she shot us and kept a very professional attitude. My fiancé and I were very impressed with her abilities. The pictures came out just as magical as the moments she caught. Highly recommended photography.

Awesome photographer!
This is the first time I have ever relaxed when having my photo taken! Shadi was wonderful making me relax and still capturing my best look.
It was so fun that I want to do it again but I don't need to- the photos were better than I have ever had.

Shadi Ameri Photography took family photos of us at the beach and they came out better than we could have expected. We had decided that we wanted a beach setting and she helped us set up some really great shots of the kids, of my husband and I and of all of us together. I would highly recommend Shadi for your next photo shoot.  She is professional, smart and really good at what she does.

I had a destination wedding in La Jolla a month ago and Shadi was our photographer.  She's an impressive, professional photographer who did an outstanding job capturing our special day.  I shopped around for a photographer (reviews, portfolios, costs, experience, etc) for about four months and Shadi was our #1 pick.  All our communication was through email and I was impressed with her quick response time.  I sent her all my ideas and she was able to capture all the shots that I had requested.  Our pictures were returned to us in a timely manner and her passion for photography was definitely exemplified through our awe-inspiring pictures!  Thank you for sharing our special day with us Shadi, you and your mom will forever be remembered!

Shadi was our photographer. A big shout out to her for being fun, creative, and professional! Our wedding photos were AMAZING. We could not have asked for better pictures. She made us feel comfortable especially since I actually hate photos of myself. :) She was able to use her artistic vision on shots and you can tell how seasoned she was with all the improvisation.

Shadi was extremely professional and did a great job for our wedding. Shadi did my wife friends wedding and when we saw her works, we booked her right away.

Shadi is great at what she does! My boyfriend and I wanted to take pictures before he left on a 6 month deployment. She was willing to work with me with a short time notice. The pictures looked amazing better than I imagined. She is great at recommending location and time to be photographed for the best photo image. I am definitely going keep her and her work around. I am already planning my next photo shoot with her for my college graduation. I highly recommend her.

Shadi is a beautiful person who takes beautiful photos. She is easy to work with, has great energy, and a very creative eye. Our engagement photos and wedding photos were better than we even imagined! She is not only skilled in the technical part of photography (lighting, editing, effects, etc), but she makes you feel really comfortable and really captures the moment.

Wedding:  Kelly & Shane 08/06/2011

Shadi took BEAUTIFUL pictures for our rehearsal dinner and wedding. I was a bit of a clueless bride and didn't know what to ask for in terms of photography, but Shadi did a great job of capturing special moments and so many things I want to remember. Her pictures are classic and beautifully edited. Shadi herself is very very sweet, friendly and kind; I was so grateful to have worked with her!
