We were on a tight budget for our wedding and the hardest vendor for us to pick was our photographer. I found it very difficult to find someone who would take good quality pictures, but also had a reasonable wedding package, until I found Jim. When we took our engagement photos my husband and I had no clue what to expect and didn’t come up with any ideas ourselves. All we told Jim is that we wanted more fun, unique, and non traditional pictures with a Detroit feel. Jim knew of dozens of spots to take us on his own and not only did our pictures come out amazing, but the session was quick. We liked that he told us what to do and we never felt awkward. My husband was even surprised over how much fun we had that day because he is not in to taking pictures. We just got our wedding album back and it is beautiful! The quality of it is beyond what we expected. Jim is extremely professional, on time (which is a huge thing for me) and priced VERY reasonably for what you get. He responds to you right away and you get your pictures back online to view pretty fast. You just tell him what you want, and he delivers! Highly recommend:)

I love Jim Shields’ work and he is great to work with! He was my wedding photographer 3 years ago and recently took group family pictures for me. I am very happy with all of my pictures. Friends still comment on how much they like my wedding album. I highly recommend him!!

My husband and I loved working with Jim Shields. He did engagement and wedding pictures for us. Jim is very professional and personable as well as very detail oriented. We are very pleased with all of our pictures. Jim demonstrates the ability to mix traditional poses along with some very artistic pictures and poses to create a nice balance when commemorating our special day. My husband and I would strongly recommend him.

We just received our photo albums today and flipping through just pages just reaffirmed how happy we are that we went with Jim. We planned our wedding from New York, which made is impossible to meet photographers before choosing. While searching for photographers, I was amazed at how expansive the prices and packages are for local photographers. After inquiring we received quick responses from Jim and his wife Debbie explaining the packages and all that’s included in the price. Jim was a great combination of quality and value. Jim made us look like “us” on our wedding day – not like photojournalism photographs that are really nice, but to me don’t totally capture the natural emotions of the day. We went with Jim’s largest package and are really happy we did. Highly recommend Jim for brides and grooms that want a professional photographer who does a great job, is easy to work with, and is accountable.

As the mother of the bride, I can’t say enough about Jim. He was at the house while the girls and I were getting ready, but somehow just put all of us at ease. His work is just outstanding, and we were all so pleased . I would highly recommend him for any occasion!

Jim and John captured all of the special moments of our wedding day with impeccable professionalism and attention to detail. Often times they caught amazing images without even interrupting us or our guests. Many of our guests were impressed with how they interacted with the crowd. I am camera shy, but Jim really helped me to relax and I could not be happier with the way he has captured our special day. I highly recommend him for any milestone event. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!

Jim and his son were our photographers and we absolutely loved them! Upon our first meeting with Jim, we knew that he would be our photographer because he favored the special candid moments. We got exactly what we were looking for and more! He was so professional and creative…different friends have told us they wish their photographer would have done such high quality work as Jim did for us. He truly helped make our day special ! Thanks Jim!

After meeting with many photographers for our wedding, we left Jim knowing we wanted him to capture our day. He was so easy to work with; was very responsive to all of the picture requests we had throughout the day, and had great ideas of his own that turned out to be my favorite pictures. He also photographed my daughter right after she was born, and I was just as thrilled with the pictures of her. He is a true professional and is highly recommended!

Sarah & Sean Keegan
Jim did 3 of my friends’ weddings and that made our decision. After seeing the fabulous photos and albums we were sold. He did an extrodinary job with our special day. Everyone says the photos look like they came from a magazine and they do. He does a spectacular job. The entire process was stress free and so easy! He makes things so simple. One of our friends have already booked him for November. He is HIGHLY recommended by everyone I know that has used him.

Lindsay & Stephan Berger
This was a wonderful choice for our photographer. Jim truly cares about making your wedding day as flawless and comfortable as possible. We were happy with all the services leading up to our wedding and after it was over. Highly recommend him 🙂

We got married in India (wish Jim could have been there to cover the ceremony too), so we hosted a wedding reception for all our friends here in metro-Detroit. Jim helped us capture some of the most beautiful and fun memories of that day. He is a true professional, thorough, flexible, and very creative. We will be going back to him for future special events, and highly recommend him.

Lauren & Brett Samyn
Jim Shields Photography captured our wedding day perfectly. Jim’s photos have a way of telling a story. During the entire day he was always around, but very unobtrusive and captured not only the mood of the day, but also the spirit of our guests in his candid shots. We love to look back at our wedding pictures because it is like reliving the best day of our lives all over again.

Stephanie Holland
Jim photographs The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk every year. His photos are AMAZING and I eagerly look forward to them each year. He has a way a capturing the most incredible moments that most photographers miss. Highly recommend him and will hire him when I get married (one day). 🙂

Kelly & Tom Vassas
