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.

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!"

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.
