My approach to wedding photography is all about capturing authentic moments. To capture how the day truly felt.

While at the same time creating a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Like a friend, guiding and being there for you the whole day. Stress free while keeping your needs at heart.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?

 

I have been a wedding photographer for 11 years! Those 11 years and many, many events have given me expertise like no other. Whether it's challenging lighting or dark wedding venues, managing schedule delays, weather changes, etc - I've got you covered. I will cheerfully guide you through the day like a friend and deliver images that authentically show how your day felt.

 

 

How many images do you deliver?

 

It can depend on hours of coverage, number of guests, types of events, etc, but in general I deliver for an 8 hour wedding day between 600-800 images.

 

 

Are the images delivered edited?

 

Yes! The images delivered in your online gallery are edited in my signature style.

 

 

Do we get the RAW files?

 

I don't give out RAW files as I want to give you a polished edited image in my style. I do deliver high resolution images in a jpeg format with printing rights. Easily shareable with loved ones.

 

 

What's your turn around time for image delivery?

 

I average 4-6 weeks for weddings. 1-2 weeks for portrait sessions like, engagement, boudoir or family.

 

 

How do you deliver the images?

 

I deliver the images via online gallery. You will get a pin code to download the images and to share your magical day with family and friends.

 

 

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

 

Yes! I love to travel and have been lucky to photograph weddings in Hawaii, Montana, Seattle, San Diego to name a few.

 

 

What is your payment schedule like?

 

To hold your date I require a 50% retainer with the remaining balance due 30 days before your wedding date.

 

 

What happens if we need to reschedule or Cancel due to COVID-19?

 

In the event that your wedding needs to be rescheduled and I am available for the new date, awesome! The 50% retainer will be applied to the new date and the remaining balance will be due 30 days to the new date.

 

In the event that your wedding needs to be rescheduled and I am not available for the new date or you need to cancel the 50% retainer will be turned into a gift certificate to be used toward other photography services like smaller event or elopement, engagement, family portraits, boudoir, branded headshots or printed products like albums. Must be used within one year from original wedding date.

kind words

 

"We hired Shannon for both engagement and wedding photos. We absolutely loved our engagement photos, and had a blast taking them with Shannon. She so funny and makes you feel extremely comfortable. Not only are the engagement photos something we will treasure., but it also allowed us to go into our wedding day knowing we'd have fun and be relaxed with Shannon, and come out with even more amazing photos - and Shannon certainly did not fail to deliver!

 

Thanks for giving us photos we will treasure forever Shannon!"

engagement faq

 

 

Why should we have an engagement session?

 

 

If you're feeling nervous about having your photo taken this is a great way to ease nerves. We get to know each other better. You see how I work and you get fun photos of you and your partner in a very special time in your life.

 

 

I hate getting my photo taken! What do you do for people like me?

 

No worries! I completely understand the feeling and got you covered. To ease nerves, I chat with you before the session, go over any concerns you may have, like how to pose, etc. And good news! I don't focus on posing. I focus on creating a moment by directing you in a fun and interactive way.

 

 

I have no idea what to wear - help!

 

Happy to help! I recommend wearing an outfit you know with out a doubt you feel AH-MAZING in! I also generally recommend neutrals or jewel tones like, navy, dark green, burgundy, etc. You can also share with me your outfit choices and I can give input how they will photograph.

 

 

How many photos do you deliver for engagement sessions?

 

I deliver between 50-80 images for engagement sessions.

 

 

What's the turn around time for image delivery?

 

1-2 weeks via online gallery.
