One of the biggest rewards for me personally is the wonderful feedback that I receive. I would like to thank each and every client who has taken a moment out of their busy lives as newlyweds to offer their kind words. It really is the feedback that gives meaning to all the hard work in wedding photography.

I am very passionate about what I do. I love for photography and invest my mind and soul into my work. At the end of the day, my goal is to provide my clients with images that capture true emotion – true love. These are the most important and most cherished moments of your life, and I am honored to share them with you.

Here are a few comments from some of my amazing couples:

Riri & Virraj

“Shira is an amazing photographer. I had originally hired Shira for my engagement shoot that we wanted to do in NYC. My fiance and I were not that comfortable posing in front of a photographer but with Shira, we became very natural. Shira took us to Central Park and said to us “relax, have fun and pretend that it is just you two & be yourself with each other” We were so comfortable with her and she was so energetic that we became really natural with each other and had lots of amazing shots. That is when I decided, I wanted to hire Shira for my wedding. She came to Mumbai, India for my wedding and shot ALL 5 days. She spent a lot of time sitting with me and learning about my culture and rituals, which showed her enthusiasm and got us very excited about the photography. She was clicking constantly from start to end with so much energy. When we saw the preview on her blow, I was in tears! I loved the work..how she captured our traditions, colors, emotions. We are grateful for the memories that we now have captured and with us forever to see and share with our friends and family. Thank you Shira! You rock :)

Carol & Mickael

“WOW! We are blown away. The pictures are gorgeous; better than we could have imagined. I’m so happy we did this and even more excited for you to share our wedding day with us. You’re an amazing artist and it shows in these fabulous photos. Michael and I are both very picky, as we both work with visual images. You’ve by far exceeded our expectations and we are anxious to see the rest of the photos when they are ready.”
..
I am beside myself. All the pictures are so amazing. I can’t even believe there are more. I feel like there are so many already.
..
I honestly think you managed to get at least one picture of almost everyone there. That is impressive! Michael and I can’t thank you enough for working so hard for us. I wish someone had a picture of you standing on one of the chairs, trying to get the perfect shot. You are such
an amazing artist. Each picture captures the beauty and happiness from that day. AND I usually HATE pictures of myself.
..
You seem to have known me so well and only captures good expressions. :)
..
If there is any way I can write you a fancy review somewhere, please please let me know. Plus, we still have a lot of friends who will get married someday.
..
I will pass your name on for sure. I feel so lucky to have found you. I hope there is an opportunity for us to hire you again.”

Michelle & Steven

Thank you so much for these. There are no words to express how happy we are; the photos are phenomenal. Absolutely stunning. You captured not only the wedding but the emotions of that day and conveyed our relationships with each other and our families and our friends so perfectly. I am really speechless. You went above and beyond; you are amazing. Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime as it be deservedly, glowing.

Michelle & Abe

Speechless…we’re absolutely speechless! The pictures are amazing. We LOVE them!

You really did a great job at capturing those special and intimate moments as we celebrated our 2nd year wedding anniversary! As former New Yorkers, we really appreciate the ways in which the city is viewed and captured through your lens. New York is already so special to us, so we feel lucky to have these pictures as we reminisce about our time in the city. It’s already so hard to pick the few favorites that will be displayed in our home!

We had such an enjoyable time shooting with you. You were really kind, professional, personable and detailed. Your commitment and passion in photography was truly highlighted during our shoot and in our pictures. You come with such high recommendations! We feel so lucky and blessed to have found you as our photographer and really cannot thank you enough.

Nadya & Jordache

Shira! OMG, OMG, OMG, SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo Prettyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!. People in the business center think Im crazy sitting here screaming at the computer! I Love every last bit of it! Didnt think the honeymoon could get any better. Cant wait to get home and show my family. They are gonna die! We are at the St. Regis in Bali after finishing up in Phuket and Bangkok. Thank you so much for the out of this world experience. Your work has got to be showcased in something really big. I dont know how , but this should be in Vogue (I have delusions of grandeur Im so excited!)

Colleen & Zach

“I have just finished looking at the 2,000+ photos Shira took at our recent wedding, and they are absolutely incredible. Shira is a real artist, incredibly passionate about her work, and I wouldn’t have had anyone else cover the event. She captured every moment, every emotion, every action, from goofy to loving to romantic… The mark of a great photographer, in my opinion, is invisibility… Shira made us feel so comfortable that we forgot we were being photographed most of the time and the photos reflect that level of comfort, grace and authenticity. After the wedding, my friends told me Shira was “like a ninja,” with the way she was everywhere, capturing every moment, and yet in no interfered with or diminished the intimacy of the setting. I felt like she was an old friend and was happy to have her at my wedding!”

Annie & Rich

“Shira I really don’t know what to say…you are simply AMAZING!!! I feel like you captured us, our spirit, our essence on film! That day was one of the best days we’ve ever spent together and it has changed our relationship in so many ways…it has deepened us even more. I must thank you for that.”

Lisa & Pouya


I hired Shira to help me plan and photograph the moment when I proposed to my girlfriend. Of course, my fiancé and I could not be happier with the results. Shira’s artistic knowledge and creativity, along with her professionalism and joy for her craft, make her one of the best photographers in NYC. Shira helped me plan everything with an artist’s eye and has provided us with photographs that we will cherish forever. She is an amazing artist and a warm and genuine person as well. Thanks Shira!
-PL & LT
I recently photographed Lisa & Pouya’s Wedding and here is what they had to say,
We have been taking looks at your blog and we are so very excited bout the pictures we have seen. Even more than that, we are deeply touched and moved by your kind words – please know that we would not have wanted anyone else in the world to be there with us!

Mimi & Moshe

“The one thing I was crazy about having for my wedding was a good photographer. I went nuts researching, insisting on using someone more professional and artsy than what my friends/community use. I found Shira by a Google search, fell in love with her pictures, fell even more in love when I met her…and now I am in love with my wedding pictures she took!

The entire experience was wonderful. She was sweet and sincere and genuinely excited to shoot my wedding. She was professional, easy to communicate with and very clear. I had a complicated wedding as it involved three different places and shooting past sunlight….I was so nervous but Shira kept on assuring me it would be okay…and her confidence was because she has the motivation and skills to get really great shots!

Not only did Shira capture the EVENT, she captured the EMOTION. I get teary eyed looking at so many of my pictures because she somehow was able to capture all the energy, the emotional moments….the actual faces of joy on me, my husband and family! She totally captured our energy as a couple in our candid shots of just the two of us. And we both LOVE our family photos because they were so candid, not the typical formal shots!

The pictures were so expressive, wonderfully composed and artistic! I have SO many classic shots to choose from.

She certainly came through with everything I asked, and more. I was able to relax and have a good time at my wedding because I knew I had a photographer committed to making me happy. I truly believe that Shira was personally invested in my wedding and she saw it as her own success to capture my day in the best way.

I did not make an album with Shira because we were very budgeted at the time and I was also interested in making it myself. She was incredibly open to creating a package that was fitting for ME. Her albums are magnificent, though, and I plan on doing it. She did create a wonderful online slideshow for me! She was also kind enough to rush me my pictures so I would have them in time for leaving to Israel, under one month later! Overall, the entire experience was the MAGIC you hope for with your wedding pictures.

Another thing, I am Jewish and our wedding was so much more complicated because of all the stages and rituals!

Choosing Shira was the best wedding decision. She was easy to deal with, followed through and gave me pictures that enable me to completely relive my wedding day!”

Sarah & Leo

“Shira did a fantastic job capturing our wedding. Guests commented to us after the wedding that our photographers worked so hard and captured all the dynamics. Shira doesn’t focus on capturing a list of ed moments (cake cutting, first dances, etc.) at the wedding, but instead works the room and gets the nuances — all the while not missing the ed moments. She has a poetic eye and a sense of the moment and to have our wedding day captured that way is a delight that will reward for us forever.”

Sharnell & Jean

“It’s been 4 months now since you photographed Jean and I..and I am still blown away by your talent! I still get so many compliments about our photographs!..And, so of course, I give them your name and website lol :) And, tell them Shira is THEE BEST!! We’re saving up for the big one in probably 2012..in NY again of course. We’re thinking Brooklyn Botanical Gardens-Palm House..and we already picked out our photographer…… ;)

Yvonne & Jason

“I swear, every time I look at the photos I am reminded of that amazing day and always think of you and how happy you made me and Jason feel and how much my family loved working with you! What an affect you had on our lives!! =)”

Julie & Zack

“I wanted to thank you so much for such an amazing day. I can’t tell you how excited we are to see the pictures, the pictures on the blog are simply amazing and I have received so many compliments on them already. You are beyond talented and you have a wonderful way of getting the best out of everyone. I know its so hard to be involved in such a crazy day and I can honestly say you felt like part of the family (not the crazy ones!). I can’t thank you enough Shira!!!! My family loves you and we are so lucky to have had you capture the day!”

Darcy & Jerry

“WE LOVE THE PICTURES! I will most definitely be posting a review for you. I can’t wait for the DVDs and to get started on the album. The pictures were exactly what I was hoping they would be…I’m so happy that I hired you!!!
Jerry’s mother was so happy with the pics ,Jerry actually has three sisters who are all unmarried — of the three I believe two will be married in the next two years….so get ready for more business from our family!”

Veronika & Jermaine

You made our day even more special, you created our memories, and with your camera you expressed the feelings we have for each other and for that I would like to thank you with all my heart. You are a real artist because you put life into your pictures. I will recommend you everywhere I go and if I ever would like some nice pictures, you are the first person I contact.”

The photos came out so gorgeous and we absolutely love them!!  There is no doubt in our minds that we have picked an amazing photographer.  We had a lot of fun that day and you really captured that so well.”

and then after the wedding….

Wow. I am still recovering from looking through the slideshow. Thank you very much for all that you did for our wedding. We are sure the pictures will be lasting memories for a lifetime. Words can not even describe the happiness and joy we feel. Its like we are the luckiest people on earth to have had such a wonderful wedding and now to have all of those moments captured with such beautiful pictures that show the real emotion and happiness that was present. It is very emotional and I am so deeply touched looking at all of the family and friends and the true happiness that shines through on all of their faces! It was great to have such a talented photographer there to capture such a special day. We will always look at our pictures with such happiness and joy! We appreciate all you did. Thank you!

Jennifer & James

“I meant to e-mail you back last week after I received the slideshow but I’ve been too busy sending it out to people that I haven’t had the chance! First I’d like to say, WOW!!!! The pictures are amazing! It was really great to see that you and Paul captured so much at the reception – especially since Jim and I didn’t get the chance to take in everything that was happening! I felt like I was able to see the wedding from everyone else’s perspective – and I really appreciate being able to see how much fun it seemed everyone else was having! I keep watching the slideshow over and over again because I can’t get enough of seeing all the pictures!!! You truly did a wonderful job!!!”

Jen & Mark

“Shira, you are so talented – all your photos are so beautiful and so perfect!
