About

Hi, I'm Shannon. I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Philadelphia. When I'm not shooting weddings, editing photos, or watching an embarrassing amount of Bravo programming, I'm looking after my two children. I also live with a neurotic dachshund and chinchilla named Maude (and a husband named Pete). I like animals more than people most days. Elopements, intimate weddings, feminist weddings, destination weddings, self-uniting weddings, and LGBTQ weddings make me even more excited to wake up in the morning. Summary: I really like being a wedding photographer. More about me? I volunteer for The Trevor Project every week as a crisis counselor for their LGBTQ suicide prevention messaging services. My glasses fog up all the time. I'm podcast-obsessed. I like refreshing Instagram a little too much. I wish Lizzo was my friend. I wish Leslie Knope was my neighbor. I apologize too much. And I love love.

So many people reach out to me to let me know they're awkward or anxious in front of the camera. If that is you, you are my people. I'm here to make you more comfortable and ideally forget that I'm tucked away behind a bush somewhere while you cuddle your partner. I promise not to force poses that don't seem organic to who you are as a couple. Instead, I pride myself in letting moments happen naturally, while guiding you along the way. I want your wedding day to be filled with positive vibes, so I'll work with you leading up to the day to make sure the timeline flows smoothly and you feel as prepared as possible. Weddings are incredibly personal, so I feel really privileged that I get to call this my profession. Capturing celebrations while focusing on color, composition, and getting to really know the people whose story I'm telling is what makes me happy.

Breathtaking Experience

There are not enough words in the English language to give Shannon an accurate review. Everything from our first Zoom meeting to our Engagement Photos to our wedding was a dream come true. Shannon was not only our photographer but by the end a dear friend. They were responsive, attentive, and just so fun to be around. I got so many compliments on how spectacular they were and honestly would get married again just to have them photograph us. They are a beautiful kind soul who made everyone relaxed, and at ease. I will be gushing about them and my photos for the rest of my life. Thank you so much for everything.

Shannon is the best!

Shannon was the absolute best to work with! Their kindness, respect, and patience was so appreciated on our special day. They made us feel so comfortable on a day when our nerves could have gotten the best of us. The photographs came out even better than we could have imagined. Shannon's images will be cherished by us and our family forever. The photographs captured the day's energy, the fun celebration, and our love for each other. We can't recommend Shannon enough!

Fun, easy, comfortable

Shannon was amazing! We have only done our engagement shoot with them but we are super impressed with quality of the photos and turn around time. Shannon was very flexible. I changed the shoot location day of and they were great about it. They made us feel super comfortable and were super positive. It was a great experience. Looking forward to our wedding shoot with them :).
