Seamless Client Experience

From the moment you book your session until your final prints are delivered, Maureen ensures a seamless experience. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Booking and Planning: After filling out the contact form, Maureen will reach out to find the perfect date and location for your session, answer any questions, and provide tips on preparing for your photoshoot.
  2. The Session: Your 45-minute portrait session will be filled with laughter and natural interactions. Maureen’s engaging approach helps clients, especially kids, feel comfortable and at ease, ensuring genuine smiles and candid moments.
  3. Post-Session Viewing: At the end of your session, you will set a time to meet before you leave the island. Maureen will bring her laptop and run a quick slideshow so you can see your portraits. Everything will be retouched, and you can also pick your 11×14. She’ll give you the USB to take home and ship the print when it comes from the lab. If you are leaving the island before you can meet, Maureen will send you a link to an online gallery to view and download your photos and pick your 11×14.
  4. Print Delivery: You’ll receive your beautiful 11×14 mounted portrait and any additional portraits within three weeks (and often sooner!).

Client Testimonials

Maureen’s clients rave about their experiences and the stunning results:

“Maureen is one of those rare gems–a highly professional, extremely talented, gracious, and lovely person. Her attention to detail in taking our family’s photographs was proven in the resulting photos. She was able to make teenage boys and grumpy old people smile genuinely with her soft humor and good nature. We LOVED having her take our family photographs!”
Susan D.

“We had a photo shoot with Maureen last August 2022. I interviewed multiple photographers and ultimately felt Maureen fit the bill best. Incredible decision! Maureen was able to work with our schedule, worked with the quickly changing weather, and was SOOO good with our kiddos. Grandson was OVER taking pictures before we even started and Maureen was excellent at teasing cooperation from him, creatively using the landscape and sky for stunning shots and coaxing smiles from us all. We used a similar summer special she is offering this year… To my joy, we had lots of images to choose from. The one we ultimately used for our 11X14 just makes me smile!”
Kathy F.

“It is hard to put into words how absolutely wonderful our experience with Maureen Snyder Photography was. Maureen was always professional, available, and willing to help in any way she could. She was in constant communication and provided all necessary information prior to our arrival in Hilton Head. Upon our arrival in HHI and our meeting with Maureen, we were instantly struck by her professionalism and warmth. She immediately made us all feel at ease, and connected with our two young children, allowing her to get more natural pictures of our family.  Outside of her excellent skills as a photographer, she also provided us with some great information about the island and where we could take our kids to find some awesome shells and natural wildlife. Lastly, we were incredibly impressed with her promptness in providing us with a peek at our pictures, as well as providing us with the USB to take our pictures home before even leaving the island! We cannot say thank you enough to Maureen for the beautiful and natural pictures that she captured of our family. We had not had pictures taken in 3 years, and it was such a wonderful opportunity to get updated photographs in a location that has quickly stolen our hearts. We are so pleased to have our happiness, joy, and memories of our time in HHI captured so beautifully.”
