Services Offered
This unique wedding "documenter" offers complimentary consultations to determine if you're a good fit for each other, and to answer any questions you may have. Shana is a boutique-style service who only shoots a very limited amount of weddings in order to give you the time and attention you deserve. She offers the option of a second or third shooter, as well as a personal assistant, if you so desire. You can even choose to have a pre-wedding test shoot to see how your hair and makeup photograph. Additional services include, but are not limited to:

  • Additional hours
  • Albums
  • Custom graphics
  • Digital file downloads
  • High-resolution images
  • Multiple locations
  • Negatives
  • Prints
  • Online Proofs
  • Same-Day Edits
  • Slideshow
  • Video


Other Services
In addition to shooting weddings all over Central Illinois, Shana is also available for destination weddings, wedding showers, and/or bachelor/bachelorette parties. Additional events include:

  • Boudoir shoot
  • Engagement shoot
  • Rehearsal dinner
  • Trash-the-dress
  • Dramatic Sunset & Night Portraits

Videotography:
Shana invented the Video-tography style of wedding documenting. Videotography is a hybrid photography and videography way of shooting a wedding that allows for flexibility and is efficient enough to cost about half of what a traditional photo+video package would cost.

    Best experience ever!

    I was very happy and had the best time ever with Shanna & Angie. They even suggested a surprise for him on the day of and then videotaped it for me so that I could see his reaction. So cool!
