Will was immediately responsive and flexible, and despite the crazy and quick timeline needed, he really shot and produced an awesome final product. He clearly has a great aesthetic sense...Very happy with Will’s work and highly recommend it.
— Liliana Z.
Will immediately understood what I meant and is in general a great communicator...Will made me look as good as I ever could, but also still like myself. HE has a very easy way about him, and I think because he made me feel so comfortable, he was able to record an accurate but completely flattering image.

Will has a terrific eye [and] is worth every penny.
— Lauren E.
I had my first photo shoot with Will today! He is so efficient and made me feel very comfortable...and the results were even better than I expected. Very pleased and will be returning. Can’t wait!
— Lauren S.
I had Will Star shoot my wedding photos after working with him on an unrelated video project —- and in short, I could not have asked for an easier person to work with, or a more exacting delivery of service re: what I had requested. (I asked for a lot of candid shots to capture the real moments of my small, intimate wedding, because forcing guests to pose for photos is often hackneyed or clumsy, with often poor results leaving less than perfect memories of the event...just my opinion).

The best thing about Shooting Stars is that its run by a guy who is fully obsessed with photography as not only an artform, but as a mechanical process, the means to capture life via a series of technological processes...he is as comfortable shooting pics using digicams or film cameras, using everything from state of the art cameras/equipment/lenses all with the same skill he could employ using a rare vintage manual you might see on Antiques Roadshow. If I remember correctly, we only used Will for a couple hours but he came with no less than 7 cameras and an assistant holding even more equipment. He’s a perfectionist and a total photog nerd, and that’s exactly what you want for your special day - someone who lives and breathes his craft, and understands what you do or do not want when it comes to capturing memories in a medium.

...Shooting Stars Pro is the genuine article. You will not be disappointed.

Will was very easy to communicate with via email and very flexible with scheduling. He gave us great advice and the result was beyond our expectations. I couldn’t be more pleased. I would highly recommend Will Star to anyone looking for top quality!

Will is awesome, as all of these 5 star reviews show! He was affordable, very speedy and delivered on-time. He was easy and fun to work with—I am a totally camera-shy person, so this was no small feat...I recommend him completely!
