What customers say about us...


"We can't say enough about the fantastic job Shubha did with our family photos. Shubha is professional, and at the same time very friendly and a real pleasure to work with. We were so pleased with the photos she produced, especially several terrific shots of our active 8 and 4 year old children. Our experience was so good that we have made it a tradition to have her take our family photos every fall!"

"Shubha did our sons pre-school pictures and it was amazing, we couldnt believe our 3 yr old boy could sit and pose that sweet! Afterwards we decided to have a family session with her. The entire process was very professional and she was super easy to work with. Our family session turned out great as well. Shubha knew Chicago and some great locations for us to do an Urban shoot. She was incredibly patient and easy going with our young son's and our pictures turned out great! I would definitely recommend her for family photos, especially if you have small children."

"I had an absolutely amazing experience working with Shubha Gangal. Let's start by saying that having my picture taken makes me very nervous; I get anxious and chatty and twitchy, and usually, you can see it in the photos. But Shubha is a magician. She was so fun and patient and effortless, while at the same time fast, professional, and efficient. I had a great time, and was thrilled with end products. She was actually shooting me for a magazine, and I contacted her afterwards and asked to purchase the photos for personal use. Honestly, I can't give her a higher recommendation. 5 stars aren't enough!"

"Shubha did a phenomenal job shooting our event--both posed and candid party shots. The quality of the photos is first rate and really captured the happiness and excitement of the celebration. She was also very thorough--I think everyone there (out of 150+ people) appeared in at least one photo--and very quick to turn around the final photos. We really enjoyed working with her and hope to do so again soon."

"Shubha exceeded our expectations so much, it's hard to put into words how delighted we are with the end product. We hired Shubha to capture our wedding in early September in St Joseph, Mi. She knew exactly what to capture and was the calm amongst the storm. She ensured that all our family and friends felt special as well as delivering images we can treasure for years to come. Her turn around time was exceptional and meant we could relive our day so soon after the wedding! If you're considering Shubha for your wedding or another event I can assure you, you won't be disappointed. She takes the time to get to know her clients, understand relationships/events and ensure that her photography enhances the day rather than getting in the way. My husband and I wanted a photographer who was truly LGBTQ friendly and we felt completely supported by Shubha."

"Shubha is very professional, very thoughtful, incredibly responsive and was willing to jump through hoops to turn around some photos for me very quickly.  I highly recommend her!"

"Shubha did a great job photographing me for a website interview - I was a little nervous, but she put me at ease and was able to work creatively with the natural light, my products, cluttered studio, and my awkwardness! She was able to capture fun pictures that look natural and show my own artwork to an advantage."
