My name is Shannon and I am a Virginia based fine art photographer, specializing in romantic outdoor weddings. With a photojournalistic and fine art approach to wedding photography, I capture real and candid instances that unfold naturally, but also put a lot of creative thought and effort into detail styling and some posing here and there. I consider myself a hybrid photographer, so I shoot both film and digital photography, depending on your preferences. Overall, my style is bright, elegant, genuine, and timeless.
I photograph weddings across the globe, but you will likely find me in Charlottesville, Washington DC, Charleston, Virginia Beach, or South Florida.
I am honored to have been published in The Knot Magazine, Modern Luxury Magazine, Vow Magazine, Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Washingtonian Bride and Groom, among others.

The best of the best!
If you are looking for a wedding photographer, Shannon Moffit will be one of the best wedding decisions you ever make! She is an absolute ROCKSTAR as a photographer (and person)! Shannon was there for Chris and I every step of the way through the wedding planning process. She is responsive and knowledgeable. Shannon is organized and creative and everything you should want in your photographer. The love that Shannon puts into her art is palpable and it shows in her work. I am so thankful that we had such an amazing experience with out photographer and that we will be able to relive our wedding day for years to come through her beautiful pictures!

So much fun and GORGEOUS photos
Shannon is totally amazing to work with. Her photos are perfect! She never fails to to capture the exact energy and emotion of a moment, and we’re lucky to have her capture these memories for us. She is also a blast to have as a part of the day. Her energy and enthusiasm seamlessly fit into our group, and she is joyful, easy going, organized, and just so much fun! Working with her throughout planning, engagement photos, and the wedding day itself was easy and so enjoyable. We love her and could not recommend her enough!

Shannon is amazing!
Shannon is amazing! We hired Shannon for our Veritas wedding after seeing some of her photographs from other Veritas weddings. Her upbeat attitude and personality on the phone helped to make the decision easy for us! Shannon came up to NYC (where we live) to shoot our engagement photos, and meeting her in person definitely reinforced our decision to hire her for our wedding. She is so organized while still being easy-going, and is so fun to be around. We were impressed with her knowledge and use of film during our engagement shoot, and the photos came out great!
Since we hired Shannon so far ahead of our wedding, she also was a great resource for questions throughout the process - I reached out to her with questions that ranged from recommendations for vendors she had worked with in the past to what color bridesmaid robes would photograph best.
Shannon was super organized leading up to our wedding - we discussed all of the important shots that we wanted for our big day, and she built out a timeline and helped us to get organized to make sure she could capture everything.
Once our wedding finally arrived, it ended up raining the whole day. The timeline got totally thrown off, but Shannon was flexible and was not deterred. We had to push back our first look and switch the location multiple times - I originally really didn't want to have to do the first look inside, but Shannon was so upbeat and positive, and helped to clear out all of the vendors setting up for our event so that we could have a private first look in the ballroom at Veritas. She did an AMAZING job capturing our First Look photos. They were beautiful and the detail of the photos was incredible - you could literally see tears rolling down my cheeks.
Throughout the rest of the day, Shannon was so willing to go above and beyond to help us capture the images we hoped for from our wedding. She even drove us up to the mountaintop vineyards at Veritas (where we originally hoped to do our First Look) and helped navigate portrait shots through rain and mud.
We absolutely love all of our photos, and she did a great job of capturing beautiful portrait and ceremony shots combined with fun/silly dance floor and late night shots. We couldn't ask for more! We highly recommend Shannon - not only did she do an amazing job with our photos, but she was so fun and easy to work with!
Shannon's photography is amazing! We can't wait to do more together!!! She's personable, and her care for her clients shines through!!
With a soft touch and keen eye for details, Shannon has an amazing gift for photography. She has a knack for putting her clients at ease and bringing out their best self to create amazing images!
