Angie & I would love to hear all about your proposal and how your wedding planning is going so far.
Our goal is to create visually stunning photos that are compelling and dramatic!
We want you to have artwork that you can post, pin and hang on your walls.
We also love making emotionally-moving videos so that you can relive how you felt on Your Wedding Day years later, so be sure to ask about our VIDEO-TOGRAPHY hybrid packages to get the best of both worlds (at pretty much the same cost as just photos).

Text or DM us so we can collab on custom pics!

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.

Absolutely a dream!!

We have only had our engagement pictures done, so far. We are booking them for our wedding and can not wait! They were so amazing at making sure we were comfortable in front of the camera, it was as if we were out with family and friends. They even suggested doing a save the date picture, which we loved and helped check another thing off our list. We can't wait to work with them again on our wedding day. We are meeting with them a couple times before the big day, so we have everything ready to go. They want everything to be perfect for us and as stress free as possible. We are, so grateful, we found them!

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!
