Client Reviews

"Violet was wonderful. Working with her was no work at all. She was already at the venue when I arrived to get dressed, taking pictures of the location. We had a few shots that we really wanted and all of those came out beautifully, but the pictures we didn’t plan for were such a wonderful surprise. My step-daughter dancing with her father, the look on my husband’s face during the ceremony, everything was there. And I will always appreciate working with someone so composed and professional, knowing that I didn’t have to worry about anything helped to make the day completely stress free."
-Megan Brown (Bride)


"If you could roll Kinfolk Magazine up into a living, breathing photographer, it would be Violet Short. In recipe form:-one dollop of natural backdrop - ya know, winding branches, feathers and raindrops dropping from the sky and ivy growing through nooks and crannies - 2 splashes of finding those perfect candid moments with authentic smiles-zero fuss - she makes magic happen and you don't even realize it all happened until it's over and she's sent you a collection of the most beautiful images. Sometimes I imagine myself in a more serious form (nearly impossible) in which Violet could make me look like one of those mysterious, story-filled creatures out of Kinfolk."
-Brittany S. (Yelp Event Coordinator)


"Working with Violet was easy and natural. She gave enough direction to keep picture taking from being stressful, yet she was open to suggestions to allow the bridesmaids & I to have creative input. It was a perfect balance. During the ceremony she & the second shooter were quiet, unobtrusive, & got all the important shots we wanted. I loved the way these photos were edited giving an extra vibrance & high quality to the photos without feeling overly stylized in a way that will seem dated in a few years. They took plenty of pictures - there were not any moments or events that were missed. Overall I feel super pleased with our wedding photos & I love showing them off to friends and family! They are excellent quality with a good balance of those close-up and those that capture all the action. Working with Violet was easy and fun; If I had to do it all over again I would still pick her. I have gotten so many compliments on our wedding photos!"

-Becky Elias (Bride)


"My wedding day was the best day of my life and I was blessed to have Violet there to document the whole day! Violet was dedicated to capturing the moments that I thought were important and made herself easily accessible through text, email, and phone calls before my wedding day to know what was important to me and my husband. She was very easy to work with both beforehand and on the wedding day. She made me feel very special and beautiful throughout the whole day! Violet was able to get amazing photos! She worked quickly and efficiently with us as we have a family member that has special needs and still took beautiful photos that are very special. I would highly recommend working with Violet! If I had it to do over again I wouldn't change a thing! I love our photos and often get complemented on them by friends and family!"

"Violet Short was one of the photographers for our wedding, and we couldn't have asked for someone better! She was very professional, and the shots she managed to capture during our time together are shots we will treasure for a lifetime! She managed to connect with our whole wedding party, which only made our photographs that much more REAL. She put thought into everything she photographed, captured all of the important shots as well as detail and candid portraits. She was beyond polite, creative, and kind, and we really enjoyed having her as our photographer!"

"I won a photo shoot with Violet at a bridal show in Indianapolis. I was not looking for a photographer at the time, but I was extremely impressed with her work and the quality of my pictures! We had so many favorites, it was impossible to find just one...which means we have multiples hanging around our home! Violet was wonderful! Very sweet and had a great eye for shots and used nature (in our case, sun and fog) to take some breathtaking photos. My husband and I intend to be contacting her in the future for other photography sessions!"
-Christine Barrett (Engagement Session)


"My husband and I renewed our wedding vows for our 10 year anniversary. We had a super small private wedding when we got married, and did not have professional photos taken. So, this time, we wanted to capture the day with some great photos. Violet was very professional and very easy to work with. She knew just what moments to capture, and our photos from that day were awesome. I will definitely use her again."
-Teri F. (Wedding renewal)
