About Shutter Photo & Film

Shutter Photo & Film


Hi! I'm a documentary-style wedding photographer and videographer in the Louisville, Kentucky area. Capturing genuine love, happiness, and awkward moments is my specialty. I give you space to be yourselves and document those in-between moments and let your personality as a couple shine through. Let's capture your story.

I'm someone who can light up a room *pun intended* and give you posing direction to have a natural and beautiful feel. I'm fun to work with but get things done. I can take control of big groups and blend in when I need to get the candid moment you didn't realize you missed. I'm here to help you not just on your wedding day but with planning from the start.

    We highly recommend Shutter Photo and Film! From meeting Adam to our wedding day we had great communication and he made our day so easy! He is so calm but directive and our guests barely even noticed him! He really paid attention to what we wanted and captured our wedding perfectly; we couldn't be happier with our photos!

    Where to start, where to start… There are just so many good things I can say. Working with Adam was so refreshing, effortless, and fun! I’ll break down my review in a couple different areas. 1. Professional, but never stiff – Adam is a joy to work with. He has perfected the balance between professional but still lighthearted and fun. It’s all about the photos and the process, but yes, we will gab about Dungeons & Dragons in between photos. I felt the ease and comfort of working with a close friend, but the confidence and assurance of working with a seasoned professional. As someone who can be awkward in photos, this made all the difference, and I was able to relax and enjoy the wedding and know that I’m going to get good photos. 2. Personable – Again, I felt like I was working with a friend, but never in a way that I felt I wasn’t getting professional services. We can laugh, joke, and then discuss timelines and money in the same breath without issue. He took the time to get to know me and my wife and really cater our engagement session to represent us. We did a Dungeons & Dragons theme and it was so fun, especially because he totally understands and plays the game as well so it was great to geek out about it and get some fantastic photos. But you can easily tell he was genuinely interested in us and making this a perfect experience for us, not putting us into a mold that worked best for him. 3. Technical Ability – the photos really speak for themselves and his technical ability. His use of lighting, angles, focus, and catching those candid moments is amazing. You can just tell that he knows his way around his equipment and had created a seamless process for capturing an event. It really was seamless – while I was catching up with friends at the wedding, he’s setting up a photo station for those staged, family photos. He ushered all us in, got us set up, knocked out the photos, and then tore everything down and was back to the ceremony before I even realized I wanted him to get a photo of something else. I had the thought of “Oh, I want to get this” and boom, he’s already there. He had great ideas for photos, too, which was super helpful as I’m not really creative that way. As someone who needs a bit more direction in how to pose and facial expressions, Adam has a gentle, polite manner. But the fact that he took the time to say, “Hey, can you lift your chin a little?” or “Can you relax your shoulders just a tad?” was comforting because it shows he’s looking at the whole picture and thinking about how the client will feel about how they look in the picture. The little things that maybe seem “picky” or not “that important” can make all the difference, and he makes sure that the person in the photo is going to be their most flattering selves. So, yeah, 5/5 stars, thumbs up, would 100% recommend. Prices are fair and payment systems worked really well for us. I never felt like I would be cheated out of anything. I definitely got my money’s worth and then some. Turn-around time for photos was spot-on. I got married on 2/28/2021, and got a sneak-peek a few days later with polished, sharp, amazing photos.

    Adam, Shutter Photo & Film, and his team photographed and filmed a wedding on a private residence with us and I would definitely recommend him to do so again. Private property weddings can be full of logistics and day of management so it was piece of mind to know that Adam had both the photo and video under control. He’s dependable, organized, friendly, and creative.

    We can't say enough good things about Adam and Shutter Photo & Film! He exceeded all our expectations. His demeanor and great sense of humor immediately put us at ease. We expected our engagement session to be about 30 minutes, but Adam was still going after an hour to get just the right lighting as the sun went down. When we received our engagement photos, we knew we had made the right choice for our wedding photographer. Adam and his assistant, Emily came to the wedding rehearsal to scout out the church and to talk to the priest about camera placement, etc. The day of our wedding Adam and Emily were on time and ready to get started. We had all our group photos taken before the wedding, and Adam had asked us prior to the wedding to make a list of the groupings we wanted. This made things go much faster and smoother. During the ceremony, we can't even remember seeing Adam or Emily. They managed to perfectly capture the joy and love we were feeling that day in photos. When we look through the photos, we are blown away by the candidness of many shots, and can't remember seeing Adam or Emily. It was like they just faded into the background. This was true of the reception as well. We could not have been happier with Shutter Photo & Film. They truly were a major contributor in making our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!!!
