    10/10 Would Recommend! Shannon is a professional, experienced, talented photographer and was such a pleasure to work with!!! She went above and beyond to take time to discuss our engagement photo desires and style. Her images have brought so much joy to my fiance and me, but also many times over to our friends and family with whom we shared our photos. (It is featured on our wedding website!) Coming from out of state, Shannon made us feel completely comfortable by providing guidance on recommended shooting locations, knowledge on required permits, and selected perfectly romantic settings for an engagement photoshoot. She gave us fun, playful prompts and ideas to capture our genuine selves. We love the colors and the images of us amongst cherry blossom trees with roses, and a sunset proposal on the beach. Thank you Shannon for being a special part of our love story!

I found Shannon just two days before my planned proposal date. She was very responsive and detailed and we were able to plan a surprise proposal including signals within that short time! Shannon was very flexible with pricing options as well and was willing to work with me per my requirements. On the day of the proposal, Shannon was there ahead of time and was already shooting photos of us discretely. Once I proposed - I called Shannon out, we continued with some candid and staged photos. Shannon had some great ideas for photos and all her photos - staged as well as candid - came out amazing! Thanks for capturing one of the most important moments of my life so well and I hope you continue to surprise and delight other couples as much as you have done us :)
