Holy moly.

Whitney has been submitted to me a few various times over the years but generally when I’ve had her dumped into my lap I’ve been too busy with the job that actually pays me to invest time into unraveling the mess that is Whitney Slusser / Whitney Slusser-Smith / Whitney Elizabeth / Whitney Elizabeth Knott / Whitney Elizabeth Knøtt.

There is some photo stealing here, she does like her some inspiration pics! However, the bigger picture here is the problematic history that Whitney has as a professional photographer.

I prefer things to be told chronologically so I’m going to attempt to tell this story in a timeline format so the sourcing format for stolen images will be a bit differet.

While I tried to mostly stick to things related to photography there are some other parts of this story that play into the photography parts so I’ve included it.

Grab your popcorn. It’s a (long) ride below the cut but I promise that it’s a story that needs telling.

Summary: In the past ~8 years of being in business that I can find online, Whitney Elizabeth Knøtt / Whitney Elizabeth / Whitney Slusser Photography (aka Don’t Blink Photography and Irish Twins Photography) has cancelled or no showed to many weddings and sessions. If she does show there has been problems getting photos and/or prints. Refunds are few and far between. She has also at times used images that were not her own to represent her business.

Canceled/No Show/Undelivered Sessions: 14+
Canceled/No Show/Undelivered Weddings: 22+

Trigger Warning: infant loss, child loss, cancer, sexual assault, suicidal ideation, suicide attempt

Last Updated 11/9/2023: Ugh. I wish I could say that I’m surprised to hear that Whitney is up to her shit again this fall but I’m not. I’m mostly sorry for the clients she’s burned, yet again.

• Added four more weddings for 2023. One from July with photos and a refund that weren’t delivered until this week after the client posted online, three for October that she cancelled last minute on (as per usual, two were for the same date).

• Here’s hoping that maybe she’ll be prosecuted like CP Family Photography who has a similar history to Whitney (but with less clients affected).

Update 7/14/2023:
• Added another client who Whitney sent in a last minute replacement for on 10/22/2022

• Added a post of Whitney needing last minute second photographer coverage for a wedding 5/27/2023

• More proof Whitney is still pursuing photography despite her claiming to be stepping back

Update 5/10/2023: Whitney is back to replying to ISO’s and posting ads for her photography business.

Update 2/20/2023 @ 10AM: even more receipts including a rebuttal from Whitney via email and Facebook (spoiler alert: she doesn’t refute anything with the sessions, only asserts the medical history is factual). Also included a chat message from Whitney telling her friends that she’s stepping back from photography in 2023.

I was sent this about a week ago when a videographer was contacted by a potential client of Pick 21 because they found their name in a few of their sample videos and wanted to know if they worked for Pick 21.  The notification got lost in my Facebook feed and I forgot to go back and source the images.

Flash forward a week and I come across a post by a potential bride of Choose 21 on a local wedding group asking if anyone had worked with them.  When I clicked the link I immediately recognized their website and realized it was the same company from the week before but now they have expanded into my area.

So far I can find listings for this company in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Columbus, San Francisco and the DC area.  There may be more.  Yet, they claim to not be a business that outsources and they have one photography team and one DJ team.

Their main m.o. appears to be photoshopping couples into dramatic backgrounds.

They’ve also plagiarized reviews, seemingly after they were hit with some negative ones.  The bonus is that all of these plagiarized reviews has given them “The Best of The Knot” award for 2017 and 2018.  Shows how much you can trust those kind of rewards.


In the past year I’ve had countless couples email me asking for help with this company.  They are allegedly no showing to weddings along with allegedly not delivering files.  When they get negative reviews they then stuff their profiles with more fake good reviews.  Be VERY cautious when hiring this company.  They have been going by “The Wedding Professionals” lately but likely will be changing their name again as they did with Choose 21, 21 Moments etc.

Update 2/2019:

They have rebranded as Studio 585.

This person has a ton of aliases!!!  I think I’ve got them all.  For the most part the websites are clean – the only images used are the ones that are part of the WIX package.  The Facebook is a different story though.  There’s a well known person they stole an image of and I find it hilarious in an ironic way.

Unrelated to this submission, I am having a bit of a medical issue and will be having surgery in a week so in the next few weeks I may not be posting as much or at all depending how I feel.  Some thieves may not get busted and I apologize!  I also didn’t delve as deep as I could to find some sources and I apologize.  Just not feeling so swell today.

Starting with the website, these are images that are WIX provided so there is no original source.
