Hey! It's Shannon, I'm a Bay Area natural light photographer. I specialize in weddings and couples photography for lovers of all sizes, races, genders and sexual orientations. I believe everyone deserves to have amazing photos without the stress of getting your photo taken. Photos should be fun & capture real people feeling real things!

Based in the Bay Area, I get to travel from the redwoods to the ocean and through artful downtowns to document all types of love stories. I specialize in weddings and couples photography for lovers of all sizes, races, genders and sexual orientations. 

Here's the thing, I believe everyone deserves to have amazing photos without the stress of getting your photo taken. Photos should be fun & capture real people feeling real things. Let's skip over the prom poses and move on to holding hands, belly laughs, sneaking tushy-tap and focusing on the connection you have with your boo. It' your wedding day - have gorgeous photos and eat your wedding cake too!

"I was in complete awe of my photos when I got them." 

"Shannon is an amazing photographer! She has this incredible capability to make you feel comfortable in front of a camera by creating a safe space and also by being your hype woman. I was in complete awe of my photos when I got them back because I feel like they truly reflect how I see my life. She captured us in those intimate moments but also encouraged us to play to capture our silly selves. I tell all my friends to stop searching and hire her!"

Fun

Finally, my biggest secret in the sauce is to have fun. I encourage silliness, taking breaks and butt taps. I love a good belly laugh and think its beautiful when our eyes wrinkle from smiling. We will chat, take breaks and forget about the camera. 

DETAILS

While my favorite thing to photograph is your beautiful faces - there is something so special about capturing the little details that make you unique. Think your flowers, rings, maybe it's your favorite socks. Whatever you love, is what makes you special - and we should photograph it!

resources

From your first email to the day of our shoot - I provide style guides, how-tos, things to expect, all to help you prep for your shoot. I like to prepare you as much as possible so that we can focus on the fun during your session. 

Guidance

I am your cheerleader and coach! I don't expect you to know what to do in front of the camera, that's why I am here. I'll tell you to walk, play, hold hands - I'll remind you when to stay still or when to move. I got you! 

REAL COLORS

Your skin isn't filtered, so neither should your photos! I practice editing so that colors are clean and vibrant. I believe that using natural colors, you get a timeless photo that will last you generations. 

I like it when galleries have variety. Meaning you get the candid, wild and free images that showcase your love AND you get the classic romantic portraits that your momma frames.
