Lifestyle portrait & wedding photographer based in New Mexico (but grew up in MN) - travel available anywhere. Artistic, Creative, and fun! The style of photography is modern, with a vintage romantic edit. I've shot over 800 weddings for a chapel here in Vegas, and have tons of experience through them! I started Davista Photography while in college in 2008, and keep growing and learning! it's been a wonderful trip so far.
My favorite shoots are engagements, because you get to be with the couple, see their love and really understand who they are together, which always makes the wedding day that more fabulous! Helping them fall in love all over again and remember why they're together for engagement photos.
When i'm not busy there, i love to photograph families, friends and really anything new i can learn! i recently shot food at the Venetian for a local magazine; completely new and exciting!

The photos weren't for my baby shower, but there wasn't the option for a Maternity session so I figured that was the closest! Shanna was absolutely amazing when doing our pictures and she had such fun and unique ideas! My fiancé had such a blast during the photo session and it was so great getting to know Shanna and working with her! We can't wait to work with her again with our engagement and wedding photos!

Shanna took our engagement pics on a early Sunday morning. She was not only on time but she was early. Which is huge to me! She new that I wanted something different and not like all engagement pics.... She asked if I had any ideas of what I wanted. So I shot her a few things but told her I was open. She loved what I had given for ideas and totally took everything in her hands like how we should pose, where should we be looking, what we should be doing and she was great with including the props and scenery around us! She even did the first few as warm-ups so we could get use to her taking pictures of us. She is extremely talented and has an incredible knack for photography. I was so excited when we got the pictures back every single picture is perfect! And they are exactly what I wanted! I cannot wait till she photographs our wedding!! She is simply amazing!!!!

Shanna was absolutely amazing in every sense of the word. She was professional yet personal, gentle yet fun, and took amazing photographs for an incredibly reasonable price. We would not hesitate to use her again and would even consider flying her to Canada (where we live) for special events.
Out of all the photographers I've ever met or worked with, I by far prefer working with Shanna at Davista Photography. Her professionalism and fun attitude make any wedding and long shooting day so much better and clients LOVE her. When I need an additional photographer on my events she is always the first I go to.
Really looking forward to working together soon
