My name is Shannon and I am a Virginia based wedding photographer, specializing in romantic and joyful outdoor events. 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, and authentic.
I photograph weddings across the globe, but you will likely find me in Charlottesville, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Washington DC, Charleston, Virginia Beach, or South Florida.
I am honored to have been published in Elle Magazine, The Knot Magazine, Modern Luxury Magazine, Distinction Magazine, Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Washingtonian Weddings, among others.

She is amazing!!!
I can't even begin to express how amazing Shannon is as a person and a photographer. She is so fun to work with while staying professional and focused on her photos. All of my family, bridal party, etc wanted to take their own photos WITH Shannon by the end of the night, because she made everyone so comfortable and have such a good time. More importantly, my wedding photos are better than I could've ever imagined. Her photographing experience is evident by the quality of her work. I am so critical of myself in pictures, but I can't find a single picture that I'm not happy with. TRULY!! Please do yourself a favor and don't consider any other photographers for your special events. Shannon Moffitt is the best and only option.Sent on 09/18/2019

The first phone call I had with Shannon was supposed to be a 30-min intro, and instead we ended up chatting for almost 2 hours! From that moment, I knew she was perfect. I felt like I was chatting with an old friend and that is so important when it comes to picking a photographer. I knew her style was exactly what we were looking for — timeless, elegant, light and airy — but it really comes down to how comfortable you feel around them. When we met for the first time for our engagement photos, there was absolutely no awkwardness, and you can tell from the pictures. Wedding day was also a breeze. We had a long list of requested shots, many gathering families together after the ceremony. It was quick and easy for everyone and all of the pictures turned out perfect! Shannon is professional, funny, and extremely talented. We couldn’t have made a better decision.Sent on 07/23/2019

I am so, so happy I used her for both our engagement photos and our destination wedding. Destination weddings can definitely involve a lot of guesswork since you're planning from afar, but Shannon is such a great photographer, I had 100% faith and trust in her. She researched our venue and found a ton of great photo spots ahead of time, so on the day of the whole process went very smoothly. We just got our wedding photos and they are a dream!! Gorgeous photography aside, I must also say that Shannon was a HUGE hit with all of our bridal party and guests. She was so funny and fun to work with; everyone was seriously having a blast. The day after all of my bridesmaids were going on and on about how much they loved her. When I was looking for photographers, I didn't consider how much their personality can set the tone for your wedding. I'm so glad I decided to go with Shannon, who was so awesome and made our day truly happy and stress-free. I really can't recommend Shannon enough. I wish I could re-do that day over and over again!! Thank you Shannon for everything!!Sent on 05/07/2019
