Reviews From our Brides & Grooms

Oh, Lantern Tree Photography, what can I say? You took the best day of our lives and managed to capture the sweetest moments that meant the most to us! Shannon and her second shooter, Deann, are so fun, bubbly, genuine and amazing talented...they truly care about their brides & grooms big days and share every moment with them! Upon meeting them at the PWG show at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, I just knew I had to have them to photograph our wedding-it was an instant bond! If you want a photography team who seems like you've been friends forever, has great vision, and loves those sweet little moments of your big day sharing tears & giddiness along with you, Lantern Tree Photography is it! Highly recommend :) --Allison
We had the pleasure of working with Shannon and Deann last year and we're so glad we did! We thought we were going to go small, but ended up getting the full-blown package including an engagement session, a "get-to-know-us" video, and full coverage of our wedding day. It was so easy to work with these ladies, they were both incredibly patient and very resourceful when we had to make last minute changes. We LOVE the results of all of their work! The pictures are BEAUTIFUL and they make me want to cry every time I go back through them. It was such a memorable day and they captured it all so well. They make a really great team because they each have their strengths and specialties, so in the end, you get the best of both worlds. When we got our pictures back, we loved the flexibility of being able to view them on an app AND online. Both versions very easy to navigate and very easy to share with family. Our entire experience with Shannon and Deann was very positive and we will definitely be reaching out to them in the future. --Amy
HIGHLY recommend Lantern Tree Photography! They go ABOVE and BEYOND what you could even imagine. Absolutely loved working with them! When you think of a photographer for your wedding, you think of someone who is able to capture the raw, exciting emotion on your big day, someone who's punctual, organized and creative. You also think of someone who's able to take charge and capture all the shots that you want to look back on for years to come and someone who you're able to get along with and cry/laugh with all day long - especially since you spend 90% of your day with them! For me, this was Lantern Tree. When I first met Shannon and Deann, it was truly love at first sight! Not just with them, because they're absolutely the sweetest people you'll meet - but also with the photography they had on display. I had looked at photographers for months. Some ranging from $1,500 to $6,000 and no matter the price, not a single one of them had the type of candid photos I was looking for - except for them! By the end of the bridal show I was attending, I knew they were going to be our photographers. When it came to wedding planning, I had everything down to the detail because I am very much a Type A. I was nervous to share my itinerary with them because I had heard horror stories of photographers deciding how the wedding day happened and how inflexible some had been for my friends. However, when we met with Shannon and Deann, they welcomed my down-the-minute itinerary with open hearts and arms which truly meant so much to me! And on the day of our wedding, they had a copy with them at all times and kept me honest to the schedule to make sure things stayed on track and they were capturing every little detail I had asked for. Shannon even brought out her mom voice when it came to corralling family members for family shots - which trust me, any bride can appreciate. I cannot say enough about how amazing Lantern Tree was to work with and the photos they were able to produce. I have gotten SO many compliments and my family members love them, too. They captured every bit of my day that I had asked for and then some. The biggest surprise was the adorable thank you package they sent afterward. If I could give them 50/10 stars I would. I recommend Lantern Tree to every single one of my friends because they are able to produce amazing photos on a budget that won't break any bride's bank. --Olivia
Shannon and Deann are an incredible photography team! My husband and I used them for our engagement and wedding pictures and will be using them again for a family session in the near future. They are the perfect team because they have similar thoughts on the perfect shot but they will also see shots differently that make for a very well rounded picture. My husband and I weren't used to taking professional pictures but Shannon and Deann made us feel like ourselves by not putting us in uncomfortable poses. And at least for me, they made me feel like I was a one in a million bride, and they made me feel more confident in myself which naturally showed in the pictures, that natural beauty. I HIGHLY recommend them!! Even my husband said to me as soon as we left our wedding, 'when can we hire them again?' Lastly, they are so down to earth and really enjoy getting to know their clients. During the short amount of time we spent with them for our wedding and engagement sessions, I felt like we became good friends and my husband and I really connected with them. They are also willing to work with their clients to ensure they are providing an amazing product and it really shows in the pictures they create. They truly are the best! And we plan to hire them for all of our future photography needs. --Sara
What a wonderful experience! I can't say enough about this fantastic duo. I have so many gorgeous photos of our big day, from the big moments all the way down to the fine details. Oh. And there are so many of them too, it is amazing. They made me feel so comfortable taking photos as I am camera shy. The organization, professionalism, experience, and personality of these two is exactly what you look for. I couldn't imagine anyone else taking our wedding photos! --Andrea
My experience with Lantern Tree Photography was wonderful! I had been looking for a photographer that was not pushy, who was affordable, and had flexibility in availability. That's when I found Lantern Tree Photography! Shannon and Deann are amazing at capturing the special moments in the moment. I was very impressed with the quality of their work on their website and even more impressed when I received my photos. I would recommend Lantern Tree Photography to anyone who is looking for quality and professionalism. --Tarissa
I've been trying to find the right words to explain how amazing and heartwarming it has been to have Lantern Tree Photography as our wedding photographer. From the moment I met Shannon and Deann, I knew that they were going to work magic with our wedding photos but I had no idea how they would go above and beyond to make our wedding the most perfect day ever. They not only worked with us to help shape our ideas into beautiful pictures but also gave us amazing advice when we asked questions. On the day of the wedding they were there to calm me down, assure me that everything would work out and worked that picture schedule flawlessly. We had so much fun with them that I wasn't nervous for pictures. By the end of the day we had become quick family and laughed so much our stomachs hurt. It was a plus that they captured every precious moment of our wedding with exquisite technique and detail. We loved every single picture and will definitely be hitting them up for family pictures!   --Alexandria
Lantern Tree Photography was wonderful! We met with them before our wedding day to discuss what ideas we had in mind. They are super easy to work with, no stresses. We love all of our photos, from the portraits to the even the silly ones from the reception. We are so happy that we have all of our wonderful memories captured! These gals are AWESOME!     --Debra
