Married at Gatekeeper’s Museum in Tahoe City

“We met Shaunte’ a few months prior to our wedding to get a feel for her approach and knew right away that she would make sure everything was perfect for our wedding. Her personality was calming and supportive and we knew right away that she was our choice. She guided us through all the pre-event planning we needed to focus on and on the day she made sure that everything would go seamlessly. It rained on our wedding day and Shaunte's cool demeanor and grace helped calm both our nerves. She worked with our planner, had the right amount of control and was absolutely hilarious.

She has an amazing eye and found a way to capture our day with photos that we absolutely love. She has a special touch and we would recommend her wholeheartedly for any photography needs. We look forward to the next milestone in our life so we can work with her again!” - Jill & Keith

The ease of access to relatively good photographs via an iPhone or the latest digital camera raises the bar on what a client should expect from a professional photographer. Shaunte’ Dittmar’s photography delivers and ignites deep appreciation for the craft and creativity of a visual storyteller.

I was first attracted Shaunte’s Instagram profile by her bold use of color and the raw emotion in her work. Our first meeting sealed the deal as she carefully listened, asked questions, and offered suggestions for my surprise marriage proposal scheduled to take place at my sister’s birthday party in Truckee, CA. The day-of, as planned, she flawlessly played along, blending in with the guests, pretending to be an old friend of my sister that my fiancé-to-be had not met. When the time came to pop the question, Shaunte’, with camera in hand, seemed to be everywhere and nowhere all at the same time. The result was a series of images that not only captured the beauty and intimacy of our engagement but displayed the range of our (and our guest’s) emotions, caught with a keen eye and expertly timed precision. We knew we wanted her to shoot our wedding.

Sixteen months later, Shaunte’ joined us in New Orleans. She had interviewed us for insight; she had researched the venue, she had scouted the neighborhood for perfect portrait locations. This talented photojournalist had done her homework and came fully prepared. On our wedding day the ninja sprang into action again, she was everywhere and nowhere at the same time. This time, the results were spellbinding. The spirit of New Orleans, the character of the venue, the reverence of our ceremony and the energy of our reception, Shaunte’ captured it all, skillfully documenting fleeting moments that revealed our love for each other and of our family and friends for us.

We’re still mildly obsessed with Shaunte’s photographs from our wedding and are always thinking of new ways to use the images. We would wholeheartedly recommend Shaunte to anyone in search of dynamic images of life-changing events; engagement, wedding, or just a day in your life.

“Shaunte’ did wedding photography for our very busy Indian wedding at Lake Tahoe. We hired her after reviewing multiple wedding photographers in the area and she by far has the most impressive profile. We particularly love her ability to capture color and subtle unique moments. During the wedding she was professional and always present during the important moments. The photos turned out nothing short of beautiful and it seemed like she was everywhere at once.” - Arpan & Apurva

Married at Edgewood Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe

I cannot say enough about this girl. A: Before I even booked with her she was helping me find my hair and makeup artist (L’Atelier Salon....amazing shop). B: She was able to handle our loud crazy and sometimes controlling families. C: There was a little crisis that day that she made sure I was completely unaware of. Oh, and did I mention the photos are beyond amaze-balls!!!!! This girl is a breath of fresh air. Willing to get in and dance with the party while still capturing amazing images...She’s completely down to earth and making sure your day the best day ever is truly her goal. Thank you so much for being a part of our day and for capturing those memories.

“Just wanted to let you know that Mark and I have spent our 1st year anniversary weekend looking through photos and videos from our big day. And we're still in awe with the quality of your work, and how incredibly happy we are with all of our photos. We're so lucky to have these memories forever and we have you to thank for that.” - Carolyn & Mark

Wow! Where to start? My husband and I worked with Shaunte for our engagement and wedding photos and we cannot say enough good things about her and her work. From the very start, Shaunte was a joy to work with—she communicates frequently, she was very attentive and accommodating to our unique needs/wants, and she put two very photo-shy people at ease. Shaunte’s style perfectly captured the moments that made our wedding so special. I’ve never seen individual personalities come to life so authentically on film. Thank you, Shaunte, for providing our family with such a treasure!

“Shaunte’, Shaunte’, what can I say? We hired her to photograph our wedding... and not only was she a ferocious chameleon, blending in with our friends to capture our most important moments, but she also came to Burning Man with us to photograph our ceremony there! It was insane! Shaunte’ is so natural and light in her work, and her final products capture moments of joy and hilarity with deftness. She could not be any more amazing. What a gem!” - Daniel

“Shaunte's work is absolutely breathtaking. She has an amazing ability to capture real moments and blend into the scene to get the perfect shot. I couldn't be happier with how our wedding and event photos turned out. Shaunte’ is the absolute best and I hope I have an opportunity to work with her again soon.” - Kim

Married at The Chateau at Incline in Lake Tahoe and Burning Man

I can’t say enough about Shaunte’! She is the whole package: kind, professional, extremely talented, and demonstrates exceptional work ethic. My husband and I knew before we even officially met that she was the right choice! We let her know our priorities and she well exceeded any and all expectations. She made everyone feel comfortable, chose the perfect settings, and captured some beautiful moments. Work ethic, amazing! The final product, amazing! Affordability, amazing! I confidently recommend Shaunte to anyone who is in need of a wedding photographer!
