Photography is much more than a business to me – it’s my purpose, my passion, it’s what I love.

When you work with me there’s no pretentiousness. During my sessions what matters most is that you're comfortable, happy, and having fun.

Whether you’re in my studio or at the altar, I want to be able to put your mind at ease. It’s my job to put a smile on your face, and I can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing!

We couldn’t be happier with Sean! Both our engagement shoot and our wedding photos came back absolutely beautiful, and he made the experience so laid back and fun. During our wedding, Sean was more than just a photographer- he was checking on me to make sure I was comfortable and not getting overwhelmed. He made sure I was remembering to eat and drink water before the ceremony which nobody expects out of the photographer but that’s what made our experience with him so special. In addition to the experience we had, he also provided us with top quality products afterwards. Our photo album is absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to show it off to everyone who walks in our house. Not only that, but even the casing for the hard drive he provided for us looks great. He pays attention to all the details, big and small. We can’t recommend him enough! Thank you, Sean!

We first met Sean when at the last second the day of our engagement photo shoot our previous photographer canceled on us. We called numerous photographers and Sean was the only one to drop what he was doing and come out and meet with us the very next day to sit down and discuss our wedding. Right away we knew we had found a much better fit and we’re so happy to have been able to book him. He has a great personality and his professionalism and customer service are above top notch. When we came back into town to do our engagement shoot it was a phenomenal time. His personality fit right in with ours and he made the shoot feel very private and personal to the both of us. Not only that but his products are amazing. His photos blew both of our minds and came out absolutely breath taking. The day of the event, him and his assisting photographer blended right in with the wedding party. They got all of the important shots and even some we didn’t even realize we wanted. The album he designed for us afterwards will be cherished for many many years to come.

Getting married during a pandemic was interesting to say the least, but having Sean as our photographer truly made a difference. From making sure our engagement session was everything we wanted, even when we were delayed by stay at home orders, to bearing with us when our whole day changed due to our reception venue canceling a month out. He even went the extra mile to help us search for another venue. When you hire Sean you definitely get more than just an amazing photographer. His photography is so creative, he tries to make everything individualized, and his products reflect the upmost quality. Everything Sean delivers is unique and genuine. We loved working with him, and hope to work with him again in the future.

He truly cares about you as a couple and does everything in his power to not only give you top notch photos, but make the process of getting married extra special. He went above and beyond our expectations time and time again! Plus his work is the highest quality, our photos were amazing. I would 100% recommend Sean Thurston Photography!
