Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer
My philosophy is to keep things simple and sane. I don’t nickel and dime, because I hate when it happens to me. My wedding coverage is all-inclusive. That means one flat rate, for the whole wedding day. I don’t do forced packages full of grandparent pocket albums (?), keychains (?!?), or printed coffee mugs.
I don’t believe in taking advantage of the “wedding high” and trying to sell you crap that you won’t need or want a year later. I especially don’t like the idea of hourly packages. I feel like it really sets a limit; And who the heck wants to be watching a clock? I show up when you’re getting ready, and I leave for the night when you do. Simple. THAT is your wedding day. Start to finish.
When I shoot, I prefer to catch what’s there. I'm a very documentary-focused shooter. I don’t like perfectly posed photographs. (Though we’ll probably do one or two. Grandma will def want one.) And I won't dictate your wedding or be intrusive at all. You may not even know I'm there!
Real expressions and moments are the most important part of photographs to me. I like to be able to look at old photos, and instantly remember what it felt like.
...And being posed like a Barbie doll or bossed around is something I wouldn’t want to relive. The joke that made me almost fall over laughing, or that quick smooch from my new husband during his best friend’s toast, or when my dad saw me in my dress and started to cry… those are the important things that I want to remember and relive every time I take out my wedding photos.

Shandi is an incredible person and an extremely talented photographer. I could go on forever about how much I love her and can't imagine my wedding day without her, but I simply don't have the space :). Take my word for it, she is truly wonderful. She did an amazing job documenting our wedding day-- she was there from start to finish and was a fun, calm, subtle presence the entire time. She has a great sense of humor, which is helpful if you're uncomfortable in front of the camera (like me), and she knows how to get a great shot. Her work comes out beautifully-- the lighting, the angle, the moment, everything. I love looking back at all of our photos, it's like I'm experiencing my wedding day all over again. Thank you, Shandi, for giving us such wonderful memories of such a special day. I'm so glad you were a part of it!!!Sent on 10/28/2015

Shandi was the best wedding photographer we could have hoped for! She did an amazing job, and was so quiet that I never even noticed her taking the pictures. My favorite part was when she took pictures of just my husband and I. She made it fun, yet intimate and special. She told us exactly what to do, and made us look amazing! When I got the pictures back I was so impressed! They’re amazing, and I find myself looking at them all the time. Shandi is very genuine, fun, and so sweet. She has a wonderful personality, and is an absolute joy to work with. Do not hesitate to book her as your photographer...you will not be disappointed!Sent on 03/02/2018

The BEST photographer out there
It’s hard to put into words how phenomenal Shandi is. From our engagement pictures to the wedding, we never stopped laughing and having fun with her. She makes you feel super comfortable in front of a camera and doesn’t awkwardly pose you. She’s down to earth, but always professional. She brought an assistant for our wedding and he’s just as wonderful as she is. She managed to capture the little heartfelt moments, instead of just the big group photos. Shandi is now a lifelong friend to us and we’re so thankful we have AMAZING pictures to look back on of our big day!Sent on 10/18/2018
