They walked us through the process

They walked us through the process with patience. The walk around the Artist Guild Gallery was just fantastic.

COPORATE BRANDING & 360˚ Virtual Tour

Received a RECORD number of impressions on our website

Our expectations have not only been met but vastly exceeded for the branding of our storage business! We wanted “how to use” videos for our different types of units and this was done unbelievably well, in fact we receive as many complements on our videos as we do on our facility. With Google Analytics we have received a RECORD number of impressions on our web site! This is not advertising funds spent but incredibly well invested!

360˚ Virtual Tour

Virtual tour others can easily navigate

Shining Star Studios did an amazing job with featuring our home for the real estate market. Not only did they take fabulous professional pictures, but also created a virtual tour where others can easily navigate the layout of the house from their online device before making an appointment to see it in person.

Makes me look good to my customers

Esther is such a professional. I was so impressed with the way she worked with our event to get great head shots for us as well as action shots for the web site. Her knowledge is priceless and she is very connected in the upstate. Thanks Esther for literally making me look good to my customers!

Better than I could have imagined.

Absolutely great. Our entire office had headshots taken, and they came out better than I could have imagined. Were all “coached” to help us get in the proper position, etc, and it definitely shows. The photos were clear and well edited/formatted as well. Plus, it only took a few minutes to get the shots we needed. I would absolutely recommend this business for anyone needing headshots. Thank you so much.

They are an excellent branding photography studio

Shining Star Studios went so far and above in making sure they captured my message… my personality. It took some extra time to get my best side.. trust me, its hard to find.. and Esther was so determined and passionate about getting just the right one. I can’t recommend Shining Star Studios enough for your photography and video needs. They are an excellent Branding Photography Studio.

I am a very satisfied customer

I have used Esther and Michael for a handful of real estate photography sessions trying to showcase my properties in the best possible way. I have really enjoyed interacting with Esther and Michael and find them to be professional, skilled, equipped, knowledgeable, quick, affordable, and pleasant. I would highly recommend them. I am a very satisfied customer. I will use them again.

Our Images have gotten a ton of views

I would recommend them to anyone needing 360 images of their business.  Our images have gotten a ton of views [15k+ on Google Street View] and our customers tell us they viewed them all before coming.  It definitely gives us more legitimacy and shows our beautiful space to our guests prior to them arriving. Highly recommend!

It's more than a headshot!

They don’t just come and take a head shot (although that was the objective), they get to know you first. I believe that once they knew more about me and who I was, the more they knew what “kind” of shot would express just that. They didn’t just come and meet me, they met our company and genuinely wanted to know who we were. I guess the best way to describe SSS is…’s more than a headshot!

Professional quality, and quick turnaround

Nice and outgoing staff, professional quality, and quick turnaround on what was ordered. I would recommend this service to anyone asking for a photographer.

Fun rather than awkward

Esther is an absolute pro. She knows how to walk a client through the headshot process — and make it fun rather than awkward. I am so happy with the results. I can’t recommend Shining Star Studios more highly.

I have never experienced such a good time taking photos

WOW! Talk about professionalism. You call to set an appointment and Esther at Shining Star Studios blows you away with questions and support you never thought were needed for a picture but her process ultimately helped to obtain the best photos possible. Before a time is even set, you feel like you’re with a Hollywood Star Professional ready to put you on the cover of Vogue. When you arrive you are great and made as comfortable as family. I have never experienced such a good time taking photos of myself. More photos again soon. Just because it was so very cool! Thanks Shining Star Studios. APJ

I'd recommend them to everyone.

Esther is really nice and sweet and helped me get my immigration photos done really quick. Both she and her husband took great care to make sure that my photo was according to the specifications mentioned and I’d recommend them to everyone. 🙂
