I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my photography sessions with Amy. Ive had multiple sessions with her including family photos, pet photos, boudoir and a celebration shoot after I had been treated for breast cancer. She is both an amazing person and a great photographer. Amy provides a unique experience with every type of session and shows she sincerely cares about her clients. I have and will continue to recommend her to friends and family.

We have been seeing Amy over the past year as we documented the anticipation of our first child and then her first year. She has been amazing to work with and provided us with images of our daughter that we will cherish for years to come. She has documented this first year in ways we could have never captured on our own. We look forward to continuing to see Amy as she has become a part of our family's growth. Thanks for everything!

I first went to Amy at Custom Creations a couple of years ago for a boudoir session. I was nervous as could be for this session but after 2 minutes I was completely at ease & it was FUN! Pictures turned out incredible! Ever since this first session I've been back numerous times for family portraits & individual sessions, I have always been highly satisfied! Amy is very professional & I have nothing but great experiences when I go to Custom Creations.

I went to Custom Creations Photography for a budior session last Spring for an anniversay gift for my husband. Needless to say I was super nervous and very unsure of the experience I would have. Amy did a FANTASTIC job! The photos were amazing and she made me feel very confident and comfortable in front of the camera. She did such a great job I went back for a second session with her and my husband of course, loved all the photos!

I went to Custom Creations Photography in 2010 on the recommendation of a friend of mine who had done her boudoir session. She raved about the experience and was looking for a unique present for my husband before we started to have children. The whole experience was amazing! She was extremely professional while still keeping things light-heated and made it like taking pictures with a good friend. I have since gone to her for all our photography, including 2 pregnancies and 1st year package of our son (once our daughter is born we'll be doing another 1st year package). We plan on going to her for as long as she's in business and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonder photographer!

I have gone to Amy at Custom Creations Photography since 2008 for all of our photography needs. She has captured the most precious moments of our three children. She has always gone above and beyond with her baby package to include family or sibling photos since our family is on a strict budget. Scheduling has never been an issue and our viewing sessions has always been within a week or two of the photo shoot...even at her busiest times. Despite the uncooperative child on occasion and our photos have never been less than wonderful! Each a cherished memory.

I first worked with Amy & Custom Creations when I purchased a Groupon for a boudoir session. I was definitely nervous when I first arrived, but Amy totally put me at ease the whole time. I felt that I left as a valued customer, even though I had used a Groupon. Since purchasing the Groupon in September of 2012, I have done 2 other shoots with her, and secured her for my wedding. I could think of no one better to capture my important moments in my life.

Her work is amazing, and she truly makes you feel special, no matter what type of session you are doing. I feel I have a strong relationship with her and that she know how to get the best images out of me. I would recommend her to anyone I meet!

My sister and I purchased a Groupon deal for Custom Creations Photography for a boudir photo shoot. The images were meant to be Christmas gifts for our significant others this past Christmas. I wasn't entirely impressed when we arrived for our session. We weren't offered a glass of water or wine that was supposedly included in our groupon. Our deal stated we would each have 60 minutes for our shoot, well that's how much time we got combined. But I was shocked at the lack of customer service that followed. I scheduled my viewing with Amy for a week and a half later. She called a couple days beforehand and left a voicemail to reschedule. I called her back 10 minutes later, she didn't answer, and I never heard back from her. I then called once a week for three weeks, sent her two emails, and never heard from her. I finally received an e-mail from her with the link to my images, less than a week before Christmas. (I had hoped to purchase a few prints of my favorites, to put under the tree for my fiance, but clearly there wasn't enough time due to how incredibly slow paced she works) I had been exceptionally polite considering the lack of customer service, but I NEVER received an apology from Amy. Not one. I was incredibly relieved once I got my digital images and would never have to deal with her again. I would NEVER recommend Custom Creations Photography to anyone. You can find a much better deal elsewhere and receive more professional service and photos.

Response from this business:

Dear Elizabeth, you did indeed receive everything offered on the Groupon. (there was no promise of wine, my lawyer would never approve of providing alcohol). Please be advised that when YOU'RE rude to the business, you aren't going to become a priority to them.

We had family portraits taken in studio. 11 in our family traveling from various parts of central MN. and the west coast so getting everyone together for a photo takes some planning and expense.
The photos are adequate but not the quality expected from an experienced photographer. The studio lighting was set up very poorly and cast shadows on half of our group photo. This also happened in photos of 2 and 3 people. The shadows nearly blocked out the faces on one half of the photos. But considering that we won't be able to re-take these again due to the traveling involved, and considering that we had enough discounts & gift receipts to get the photos at nearly half off, the photos were acceptable. Several poses were taken but what we were given to choose from was limited. Basically one pose in a take it or leave situation. Watching the poses as they were being taken, I had expected more to have turned out. I'm somewhat satisfied with the end result considering our situation but I would not recommend this photographer. There are more talented people out there.

Customer service is very poor (phone calls never returned) and product prices are WAY overpriced ($50-$60 for ONE 4x5?!?!). Also, each photo session with my child was no more than 10 minutes and I felt very rushed and unwanted by the owner, Amy.
After this experience I have taken my child to a Target photo studio, and I am far more satisfied. It seems they actually care about my business, and I like getting twice the amount of pictures for less than half the price of ONE Custom Creation picture. The real kicker is that the photos I have gotten from Target are just as good or better than what I got from this studio. Go elsewhere if you want your business to be appreciated.

I have used Amy numerous times over the last 6 years, including all the first years photos for my daughter, family photos and business photos. I have always received beautiful, unique and quality photos. I think the price is good for what you get - I've seen other places that have photos that aren't as imaginative and are not printed with as high of quality and they charge more. I love that Amy has a vision for photos. I can give her an idea (or not) and she comes up with something great! I highly recommend her and will continue to go to her for my important memories!

I can hardly say I expected to have developed such a relationship with the woman capturing my dad and step-mom's wedding! I knew it was a perfect match when she agreed to let me in on the engagement session. She ended up creating a few adorable family photos, as well as some timeless images that still feel fresh and current two-years later. Amy has a magnificent skill when it comes to detail and creativity. Every image is polished and backed by the integrity of professional print services. A year later I was actually able to call this my place of employment! Never have I experienced an environment that fosters such creativity and professionalism at the same time. Custom Creations Photography is an amazing opportunity to bring quality, affordable art into your home, that you will no doubt cherish for a life time.

If you are looking for stunning work I recommend Custom Creations Photography! Amy did my wedding photos in Las Vegas, boudoir session, engagement photos and my dog Isabelle's portrait! Each time I got to see my proofs I was blown away. My only complaint is that I have a hard time just choosing one photo I wanted them all!

I found Amy when I was looking at doing Boudior photos for my husband's wedding gift. I was amazed at how comfortable she made me and the pictures turned out awesome (Even though I was her first boudior session). I then cancelled my already booked wedding photographer and haven't regretted my decision since.

We have used Amy for our wedding, pregnancy, newborn and 2 extended family sessions in the last 2 1/2 yrs. If I had more walls I'd probably have been there more than that! I recommend Custom Creations Photography to everyone who is looking for a photographer. Just so sad we moved far away from Shakopee!

Cancer makes you feel less beautiful. When I met Amy Zellmer I was more concerned about my face, and the thinning of my hair. They tell you a picture can change your life- but I never understood that until Amy photographed me. Her attention to detail and personality stand alone as the reason I tell everyone about her photos and skill. Amy has a photographer's heart- she can capture what is behind the eyes and that is what makes her powerful behind the lens. I've never felt more beautiful. Amy did that for me, and so much more. Her professionalism, talent and award-winning photography, I believe: makes her the reason that Savvy.MN recently chose her as their photographer of choice and truly? I don't think they could have chosen anyone better.

Response from this business:

Custom Creations Photography has clearly stated turnaround times! We tell all of our clients that orders typically take 4 weeks for delivery. Tasha new that our policy was 4-6 weeks, and I told her they would arrive in plenty of time for Easter. Tasha called the studio while we were closed and was clearly upset that we didn't call her back as quickly as she would have liked, which is unfortunate. I did respond to her by leaving a message apologizing that her photos were not in yet, and we called her AS SOON AS they arrived asking her to arrange a time to pick them up. I totally understand that clients feel like 2 weeks has already been 4 weeks, but when we say that we will call you as soon as your images are in ~ we mean it!! We are a boutique style studio, we are not a ProEx that prints their images on site. We send ours out to a professional lab to be printed, it takes time!! I believe the situation was resolved when she received her images after about 3 weeks; and she did issue us an apology.

Did a very good job with our wedding photos, but I would NOT recommend. VERY VERY long turn around. Has been over a year and still have not received our photos or album from the wedding.I have tried contacting with at least 4 phone calls with only one returned saying that "should be here next week"....that was 3 weeks ago and still have not heard back!

Response from this business:

Wedding Album Turnaround I just want to clarify that the couple was only waiting for their wedding album. They upgraded their album to a custom-made album that is made and printed in Italy. It was clearly stated in their contract that wedding ablums typically take 4-6 MONTHS for them to receive once they finalize their album design. I understand that they were anxious to get their album, but honestly once it is sent to the album-maker it is out of my control when it will be shipped to me. They received their album right at about the 6 month mark, which I realize is at the longer end of the guidelines. They received it and it was a beautiful album which they will cherish forever!!

We were looking for general photography at a decent price and she really did come through for us with all of that. She was very easy to work with, even our family members commented on that (one of which owns his own photography business). She was ok with other people taking pictures after she was done, which is virtually unheard of! Quick turnaround and very easy to work with. No wedding photography nightmares that are so common these days!
