Hi I'm Shannon, Most days you can find me in yoga pants working on the couch with a smile on my face and a coffee in my hand. I have a positive and joyful outlook on life and love deep conversations with my soul sisters. I am an avid paddlboarder, I love yoga, enjoying smores next to a campfire and my guilty pleasure is coconut ice cream... Yum!!
I so proud of my husband of 7 years Jeff as he has recently left his 9-5 in pursuit of his passion, brewing beer. We now run a successful little craft brewery in Jarvis Ontario.
My Dog Mika is my best friend!! I once did a photo shoot with just her and I, Yup I left Jeff at home for that one.
The person I look up to most in life is my Dad Tom, He is kindhearted, hilarious and has run his own welding and fabrication shop for the last 20 years. I get my entrepreneurial spirit from him.
I am passionate about travel, I am always dreaming of the places I will go to. Nothing would make me happier than to photograph weddings while on vacation.
I truly believe in following your dreams, making every moment count and serving others and that love is a treasure that we all have within us.

from our couples:
My new husband and I are so glad Shannon was a part of our journey to our wedding day. We quickly bonded with her over our wedding thanks to her warm and amicable nature, which made us feel comfortable and at ease during our engagement and wedding shoots. As a professional, she offered us a few tips for and had a few fun and creative ways to make us to laugh and be natural in front of the camera. Really, she made it easy for us during the photo shoots, and the results can be seen in our amazing photos. Shannon was professional, enthusiastic and energetic throughout our long wedding day, worked really well with our family and friends, and made sure to capture every detail and shot to showcase the magic and beauty of our day with our guests. I highly recommend working with Shannon for beautiful shots to last a lifetime.
I don’t think I can put into words how seeing our photos made me feel. I have spent the last few hours looking at them and trying to soak in every little detail all over again. You did the most amazing job capturing our memories, and making our special day truly look like a fairy tale. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work, and for making sure we will never forget our wedding.
The wedding photos arrived! It’s such a gorgeous box and USB The photos are absolutely amazing! Thank you for doing such an awesome job, I felt like I just relived what was the happiest day of my life. TWO friends of mine who were married a few months before me told me they wished they had hired you instead. One said that you captured such beautiful and unique shots and that was what she wanted not just the generic ones everyone has. Thank you again!

The Pre Wedding Process:
Set up your Engagement/Boudoir Session – If you’re not doing an engagement or boudoir session, you can move ahead two steps. If you are, this step is important. If you’re not sure what type of session you want or where you want to do it, that’s not a problem. I will send you a session questionnaire and we’ll design an awesome session together. After we get a location, date and theme set up, I’ll send you some tips for the day of and then I’m an open book for any questions you may have.

We’ll laugh, play and you two will have an amazing time. If you’re doing a Boudoir Session, ladies, you’ll get to make yourself all pretty, play model for an hour or so, and walk away with a new found confidence. Regardless, it’ll be a good day.

At the same time, I’ll be sending you some tips, a couple questionnaires and a timeline template. This will get me everything that I need from you and give you numerous opportunities to ask any questions that you have. I’m happy to recommend vendors, go wedding dress shopping or treat you to a glass of wine while you pick my brain. Whatever you need.
Venue Visit – If I haven’t shot at your wedding venue before and it is within a reasonable distance, I’ll scout it out before hand. You’re always welcome to join me when I do this. If it’s not within a reasonable distance, or I’ve shot there before, I will show up early on your wedding day and do the scouting then.
The Pre Wedding Phone – I like to schedule a phone call about a week before your wedding, just to make sure we’re on the same page. We’ll go over your final timeline together and I’ll address any questions or concerns that you may have. My goal is to be 110% prepared when I arrive on your wedding day. .

Wedding Day – The day we’ve both been waiting for. I always show up at least 15 minutes early, earlier if I need to do any scouting. My second will show up at the same time. Together we’ll assess what is going on, take some location shots and then come find you. At this point, we’ll continuously document what is going on around you.
