  • Absolutely unbelievable. Needed very little instruction. Knew how to determine our preferences. Knew what to ask us. Knew where to be. The final presentation was the perfect way to share the images with everyone we love. Of all the vendors I've worked with in events (I book concerts) I've rarely worked with someone as perfectly insulated and professional.

  • My husband and I had a budget backyard micro zoom wedding and we were on the fence about getting a photographer as we attempted to keep cost down and our family safe/healthy during the pandemic. On a whim, we stumbled on to Shado of a Rose online and reach out to see if Shado or Isa were available for our special event. Shado responded immediately (within ten minutes) and was willing to not only photograph our small intimate event but was also willing to come out to our home to see our backyard setting before the big day. I was extremely impressed; he was so prompt and professional. He willingly shared his vision of what would look best (I’ve never had professional photos taken so I was 110% clueless on lighting) and made me and my husband feel very comfortable about our decision. On the day of the big event, Shado and Isa both showed up and just made themselves part of our family. Seamlessly taking photos, capturing all the little special candid moments, and just harmonized so be... Read more

  • tl;dr Isa and Shado are talented, professional, and fun photographers, and we highly recommend them! We were planning 'mini-mony' on relatively short notice after having to postpone our large event due to the pandemic when we found Shado of a Rose online. Isa was always prompt and professional in her communication and flexible and patient when we had to tweak plans. Since we live on the other side of the country, we first met Isa and Shado on our wedding day when we were already getting ready. Isa immediately went to work capturing pictures of all the ladies getting ready. She got so many great candid and lightly posed photos without getting in the way. In the guys' getting ready space, my husband appreciated all of Shado's posing suggestions as well. Even though it was a very bright and windy day on the beach, they both captured the joy and emotion of the ceremony and reception so beautifully, and the photos really speak for themselves. In addition to being incredibly talented photog... Read more

  • Prior to our wedding, we sat down with Isa and Shado for a consultation. Together, we went over everything my fiance and I envisioned for our photos. They made us completely comfortable to share everything we had in mind, no detail was too small, and no ask too large. The day of our wedding couldn't have been more flawless! Shado and Isa make being in from of a camera feel so natural. It was the happiest day of our lives, and the photos capture that spirit completely. I would recommend their services to anyone!

  • We booked Isa for our micro-wedding in July 2020. We can’t recommend her enough! She has an extraordinary eye and knew how to perfectly capture the special moments and the small details of the day. We appreciated Isa’s fun personality and the direction she gave us while taking portrait shots. She made us feel comfortable and natural! Isa also got our online album to us in a very timely manner, which was great because we obviously couldn’t wait to see the final photos. We couldn’t be happier with how our special day was captured, all thanks to Shado of a Rose!!

    Sweet Caroline! That could not be a more accurate song for a woman with your personality and name combined. Talk about an incredible finale to your wedding day. And at such a strange time you shined as a planner, bride, daughter, sister, friend. Thanks for being an incredible woman to know and work with. Sending love. I&S

  • Isabelle had taken a picture of me and my now husband a few years ago and I loved it. I saw some other work on Instagram and could easily see that she was talented with a camera. When it was time for my husband and I to tie the knot it was a no-brainer as to who we should trust with capturing memories on such a special day. Even with Covid derailing our original wedding plans Isabelle was very flexible with everything. After the wedding multiple people came to me and said that Isabelle did such a wonderful job and she made sure to capture candid moments which is exactly what I wanted! Simply the best, I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else!
