Watch the magic happen

I really care about my couples, and I'm just as invested in this as you! I’ll serve you best by getting to who you are as a couple because I want you to feel like I’m a friend – not just a vendor. I know being in front of a camera can be pretty awkward sometimes, but when we feel like friends (and we actually are!) it takes all of that pressure away. From the engagement session to your wedding day, you'll feel absolutely relaxed, yourselves, AND your pictures will show that. I promise!

You are more than another number on my calendar.

I am so so excited you're here! If I could, I'd jump out of my screen and hug you. I'm a bi-coastal wedding photographer serving both the San Francisco Bay + New England region (moving 2022), but down to third wheel with you anywhere. My heart comes alive capturing my couples + their love in the beautiful outdoors – whether it's dancing on the beach or roaming through the forest –  I'm always down for a little adventure.

Oh heyyy! I'm Shannon,

"Wow just wow! I have just finished looking at our engagement session with Shannon and I feel as if I have just relived the whole experience all over again. I am wearing a permanent smile in all the photos just as I am now looking back on them, it was such a fun, loving and memorable time for me and my partner.- Katie + Chris

You aren't a professional model – but you're a professional at your relationship. You know how to make your babe laugh, where their tickle spot is, and can lovingly tease them until no end. You're world champs at cuddling on the couch, have perfected forehead kisses, and your fingers fit together perfectly because that's where they belong. I don't need you to be models, I just need you, to be you. 

I create a safe space for my couples to be 100% comfortable in front of my camera because that's when the true magic happens. I strive to capture your relationship and love – just the way it is. I'm not going to pose you into things that you feel awkward. That's not what I'm about. Instead, I guide you into something that feels natural, with lots + lots of movement. We'll play games, I'll tell you super funny jokes, and we'll have the best time together. Pinky promise.

"Shannon’s incredible work made her the one and only photographer we were considering for our wedding and we are so thankful to have worked with her. Shannon’s bright and fun personality makes it SO easy to feel comfortable, even when she is all up in your business, taking what will be the most amazing photos ever! When we received our wedding photos we were completely overwhelmed, they are LITERALLY MAGICAL! We could not say it louder to anyone who asks, if you haven’t booked her yet WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Shannon is a true gem!"

"When we first booked our engagement session, we were nervous since we have never done a photoshoot together and didn't know what to expect. We thought it was going to be awkward for us but the moment we met Shannon, she made us feel comfortable. We fell in love with our photos and all of our family and friends love them too. You can tell that Shannon is very passionate about photography and cares a lot about her clients. Thank you so much Shannon for capturing this special moment for us. We will cherish these photos forever. We hope you can take more photos of us in the future! <3"

"Shannon is literal sunshine. She always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and we’ve become more than just clients that she photographs. I was worried because I’m not a model, but she definitely works with you and guides you so that you have photos that make you look like models. I was surprised that she captured so many moments that I wasn’t able to soak in or be present for. The photos really speak for themselves and we highly recommend sharing your moments with Shannon because she can see the love in you and express it in photos that will last forever."

"Shannon is nothing short of incredible - from day one, we knew we were in good hands. Her images are gorgeous and speak for themselves, but what really did it for us was how she handled herself throughout the entire process. She was timely with communication and provided thoughtful touches along the way that were above and beyond. Just as importantly, the images we received blew us away. If you’re on the fence about whether to do day after pics, JUST DO IT. You will 100% not regret it."

"Wow just wow! I am wearing a permanent smile in all the photos just as I am now looking back on them, it was such a fun, loving and memorable time for me and my partner. Shannon is so passionate about photography, it SHINES out through her, we literally chased the sunset together that evening in search of the perfect photo opportunity. No wonder they call her Sunshine Shannon. Guys book her up fast you will not regret it, but let me pencil in our wedding date first.
