Your Photographer

Thanks for visiting and considering me for your photography needs.

I’m originally from North Carolina. If you hear me say, “y’all,” you know why. My current home is in the beautiful city of San Diego, CA. I consider myself extremely fortunate to live in a place that many come to take their vacations. I am a happily married wife to my greatest supporter and a mother to a son, whom I have found immense pleasure watching become a man.

Before diving into photography, I worked in many different arenas. It began in the U.S. Army to the Federal Aviation Administration to Sales and then Healthcare Information Systems. I’ve have had my hands in a plethora of things in between, but ultimately, my passion has been photography.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had a creative spirit and, thankfully, as I’ve gotten older, it’s only fueled my love for artistic expression. I love beautiful things. I love telling beautiful stories. My goal is to illustrate that through my work. Give me your imperfections, awkward uncertainties, heartfelt emotions, romantic touches, and authentic connections. In exchange, I will capture the feelings of your most meaningful and important memories, translated into timeless images for you to treasure and keep.

Your needs are important to me. Let’s connect and hopefully, we can forge a lasting relationship. I would love to document your family’s memories and growth!

“Shannon is such a talented photographer. I’ve had the opportunity to work with her several times within the past 6 years and I can honestly say that the photos she has taken of me, and more recently, our little family, have been my absolute favorite photos!! She is fun to work with and very professional. Her eye for beauty and authenticity is incredible – She captures the moment, perfectly. A true perfectionist at what she does and has such a special gift! Thank you times a million Shanny!” – Valerie

“My fiancé and I chose Shannon to take our engagement photos. This was obviously something my fiancé and I didn’t have any experience with and we are not the type to show PDA in front of others so we were already uncomfortable from the get go. Right off the bat Shannon put us at ease, telling us that if it felt like we were doing something awkward, the pictures would most likely turn out great and she was spot on! She had so many ideas we didn’t even think of and she captured us in the way we hoped and even more! During the shoot, her camera had a software glitch and she was unable to auto focus anymore so we figured the shoot was over. Shannon quickly adjusted to the problem and used manual focus and if I didn’t know any better I would say the pictures turned out even clearer! We would definitely, and will, use her again any time we need pictures without thinking twice about it. You get what you were expecting and so much more!” – Luke

“Shannon is absolutely wonderful. My husband and I are truly grateful for the photos she provided us. Originally, we hired an amateur photographer for our wedding and the photos did not turn out. Shannon offered to recapture the beautiful moments lost from our wedding. The experience with Shannon was so much fun. We felt comfortable the entire time and now we possess rich memories, reliving our wedding day. We are so incredibly thankful to Shannon for providing us with our dream wedding photos!” – Justina
