Serving weddings across the state of Virginia, Shaun is a professional photographer based in Richmond. The company was founded on the idea of telling every couple’s individual love story through photography, and they have adhered to this philosophy ever since. These photographers pay special attention to capture the authenticity of each relationship and the love expressed on the wedding day.

Services Offered

In order to accurately convey the happy couple’s personalities, 88 Love Stories’ photographers work closely with their clients. They schedule pre-wedding consultations and keep an open line of communication throughout the planning process.

    Amazing Wedding Photographer!

    Working with 88 Love Stories was amazing! The photographs are incredible! Magically, Shaun captured every detail of wedding and did so beautifully. Shaun was personable and felt like he was a buddy from the moment we met him. His expertise, professional knowledge, and experince resulted in sparkling photoraphs that so wonderfully capture our special day! Our wedding was a bicultural ceremony and Shaun captured all the events in a supportive, flexible, and organized manner. He far exceeded all of our expectations and all the people can't stop talking about our photos of our wedding that we will cherish for a lifetime. You have one wedding, and I can think of better person to entrust the one shot of capturing your special day to then Shaun!

    88 Loves Stories is fantastic!

    Shaun and the whole 88 Love Stories team were fantastic to work with. They were so kind, responsive, and thorough as we planned our wedding. And so flexible with our plans as we navigated COVID. They were a treat to work with on our wedding day and engagement shoot. Cannot recommend Shaun and the 88 team enough!

    88 Love Stories's reply:

    Thank you for allowing us to be part of your big day Caitlin! It was a beautiful wedding and everyone was so great to work with!
