Amazing – best money we spent on the entire wedding!

5/ 5

Shawn and Sam are The Best photographers in the area. Go to the bridal shows, see everyone else first and then go see them. Their previous work looked amazing, we stalked them, hired them and THEY DELIVERED. Our Engagement photos were unbelievable and the wedding photos were spectacular. I’m not a fan of posing for photos but these guys are so much fun and the positive, light hearted atmosphere they create makes for amazing photos with genuine smiles. If you’re looking for an album full of pictures of everyone standing in a line in formation pretending to smile, don’t hire Mirage! Our pics are unique, fun, artistic and memorable. Last thing I have to say is that when you get back from your honeymoon and call your family and friends and the first thing that multiple people say is how awesome your photographer was….. Well, I think that’s probably not normal 😉

I couldn't be happier with my photographer

5/ 5

As the title states, I couldn’t be happier with my photographer choice. I’ve worked with both Shawn and Sam on more than one occasion and also had Tayhlor second shooting at my wedding. They took 4 different days of photos, 2 different “unbridaled sessions (boudoir and Trash the Dress), Engagement, and wedding photos. Each session was an amazing experience and so much fun. Every shooter I worked with was so willing to make my vision come to life, and they have FANTASTIC vision of their own!! I have found a life long photographer and life long FRIENDS!!! If you are looking for wonderful, visionary, and artistic photographers, look no further. Give Mirage Photo a call, you won’t be disappointed!!!

BEST Photographers EVER

5/ 5

My wedding day was made to be a lot of fun and run so smoothly because of this company. Sam and Shawn work very well together. You don’t feel super posed in the pictures and they make you laugh the entire time! Our package was customized and a great price. They even drove 1 1/2 hours away to get a picture with my grandma in her nursing home. The groomsmen ran out of drinks prior to the ceremony, so Shawn went on his own and picked some up!! PLUS my husband got a little cranky bc we forgot to feed the bridal party during pictures, so Sam went and got food. The pictures are sooo beautiful. We consider them dear friends now and even had them shoot our maternity session and our newborn session for our new baby girl!! You will love them for life just like we do.

I loved every second with these two!

5/ 5

We had a blast during our engagement session. I spent most of the time laughing at the silly things that Shawn was taking photos of. He even had our 5 year old loving the photo shoot! Shawn and Samantha made hours of wedding photos fun! You read that correctly, it was fun! They allowed us to be ourselves and didn’t ask us to pose for uncomfortable photos that we wouldn’t have wanted anyway. They saw what we liked and they turned it into a memory! Samantha even asked to carry my lipstick…and she reminded me to touch up! I’m in love with her!!! They are such an amazing team. So, it came as no surprise to us that our wedding photos are un-freaking-believable!!! These two made our love look like poetry in pictures. And they threw in some really fun shots too! We knew that hiring Mirage was a great decision, and they still exceeded our expectations!

Samantha and Shawn are amazing!! I won a free engagement shoot through the perfect wedding guide and it couldn’t have went better. My fiancé isn’t a fan of pictures but he enjoyed every second. Him and Shawn couldn’t have gotten along better and laughed any more. We are definitely looking into booking them for our wedding now! I would recommended them to anyone!(: thank you two for a great experience!

There is no comparison on their level of amazing!

5/ 5

On your wedding day you really want to be surrounded by people that make you happy and comfortable….Mirage did that and so much more. From the moment I met them at the bridal show to our meetings, engagement shoot and the big day they were nothing short of amazing. They are so quick to respond, happy to help and always there for a good laugh. Our engagement photos were to die for and our wedding photos will be equally as breath taking I am sure! They were everywhere every second and I know they didn’t miss a shot. My family and friends are still commenting on how much fun they were and that they added something extra special to our day! I have been and will continue to recommend them to everyone I know. If you are considering another photographer…DON’T, you will regret it. Mirage is simply the best you could possibly find anywhere. You won’t be disappointed!
