Amazing from the start
I am still in the planning stages of my wedding but I had to stop and recognize Shannon because she is AHHH-MAZING! She worked around my schedule for an initial phone consultation and by the end of the phone call I already felt so much less stress. She really went into detail about what I love, the types of photos I want and the type of relationship my FH and I have. She even mocked up a full day of schedule for me! I felt like I was talking to a friend, not a vendor. She just made me feel so comfortable and I haven't even met her yet! For those brides-to-be like me that are feeling so much anxiety, Shannon is just so incredible.Sent on 07/12/2019

Preserve Studio is the best
Upon getting engaged, my wife and I sat down and really decided what aspects were most important to us regarding our special day. My wife being a photographer, she cared most about how our memories were captured. Preserve Studio was our first choice, and after the initial conversation our decision was only solidified even more. We hired Preserve to shoot our wedding here in Stockton, as well as adventure out to Iceland with us for a more personal wedding shoot + video. There are so many photographers out there, but very few have the know-how and confidence in what they do the way that Shannon does, this absolutely translates in the consistency of quality in her work. Her communication is ultra clear and how much she loves love makes the process so fun. She is incredibly comfortable to be around, and isn't afraid to do whatever she may need to, to get "the shot"- which makes for some seriously epic photos. Preserve Studio built a relationship with us, treated us like family, and gave us memories that we can pass down for generations. We are forever grateful and highly recommend them to everyone! -Aly & WillSent on 04/26/2019

Creative and talented professional. I met Shannon with Preserve Studios when she was providing videography services at my best friend’s wedding. After becoming engaged soon after, I looked through her portfolio and loved her work and style of photography. After our awesome engagement shoot, I am very confident and happy with my selection of this very important wedding service! She’s responsive, personable and has a beautiful eye for finding the shot. My fiancé and I look forward to working with her on our wedding day.Sent on 01/21/2018

They Create Magic
This team is magical. We book Shannon for our wedding. She met with us and made us feel so comfortable about her vision that we booked her right away. She was so amazing in how she cared for us and our special day that I booked a separate shoot before the wedding. Her vision is simply amazing. Her team arrived for our wedding and became a part of our family. There are no words for how seamless they work together. The cohesiveness is astonishing and they truly made our day one to remember. When people comment on how amazing the camera crew was before they even see the finished product- it means something. And the final product was a magical dream come true. I am looking for reasons to work with Preserve Studio again. Side note they also have a company that does breathtaking floral arrangements. Our wedding would not have been the day it was without Shannon and her amazing team answering questions, having their incredible vision, and all of their support.Sent on 11/19/2018

We used Preserve Studio for our Videography and for our Floral for our wedding. From my first conversation w/ Shannon, I was hooked. She explained everything to me and I was pleasantly surprised that she offered to do my floral as well! She made sure to stay in my budget but still give me everything I wanted for my rustic wedding. Every question I had, she answered and was always available for me. The day of the wedding was absolutely amazing. The floral arrangements were beautiful and above and beyond what I expected. Shannon was so accommodating the day of and captured all the perfect moments. Her team was super friendly and accommodating as well. We just got our video back and it is more than we could of asked for. We absolutely loved it! She also made us an extra video of me and my bridesmaids basically doing a rap video lol. It was hilarious and just another added bonus on why Preserve Studio is so awesome! We recommend Shannon and her team to anyone! We can't thank you guys enough for everything, you truly made a wonderful impact on our wedding day!Sent on 07/20/2018

Shannon was great from the first conversation with her. From the start, we told her what we were looking for - artsy, different angles, emotion, story telling - not just the same cookie-cutter wedding photos. We wanted someone who we could trust to tell us what to do and how to pose so that our vision would be carried out. Shannon did just that!Sent on 01/21/2018
Our engagement shoot was the perfect opportunity to familiarize ourselves with Shannon and get comfortable in front of the camera. In keeping with our wedding theme, she recommended Lodi Lake which resulted in beautiful, outdoor photos. I let Shannon take control of the shoot, and even sent her pictures prior to the shoot of possible wardrobe outfits, which she provided feedback of what she thought would look best!
For our wedding day, we used her experience to put together our entire wedding schedule of events. I don't know how she did it, but she got so many shots and different angles throughout the day! Her assistant, Ben, was awesome as well! Our family and friends cannot stop commenting about how perfect our pictures are! Just yesterday, my coworker said our pictures look like they should be in a wedding magazine!
While we won't be having another wedding, I hope that we will have the opportunity to work with Shannon again in the future!!

Shannon and her team were very friendly and talented and while the event was happening, we hardly even noticed their presence (which is exactly what you want!) When we did the portrait shots and group shots, they did their best to keep everyone's attention and were very entertaining and made it feel like they were just a few friends joining in and helping capture the special moments. I highly recommend Shannon and her team for your wedding photography / cinematography needs!Sent on 02/02/2018

Shannon is fantastic. From the beginning, when she reached out to me I knew that she was an expert in her field. She is super friendly, accommodating, flexible, ETC. She was wonderful on the day of the wedding and helped in every way she could. Her team is also wonderful. The finished cinematic short was beautiful and polished.Sent on 04/24/2017
I would recommend Shannon wholeheartedly and look forward to working with her in the future.

Shannon and her team went above and beyond! We had the pleasure of getting to know them as our wedding photographers, videographers, and florist. I'm usually very indecisive but Shannon guided me effortlessly through the entire creative process, turning my ideas into a beautiful reality that made my big day truly memorable. It felt like we were working with a friend and her passion for what she does shows through in everything she does. She was extremely patient and accommodating with us; if there was ever something that we were uncomfortable with or unsure about she did everything necessary to give us the confidence we needed and help us relax. The fact that she is a veteran and was able to make my husband (also a veteran) feel comfortable was amazing! Now we have the most beautiful professional pictures and videos of the best day ever. Thank you, Shannon!!!Sent on 01/15/2017

I would highly recommend using Preserve Studio for any bride that is expecting excellent service and on a budget. I knew what I wanted for my wedding but I was willing to give some wiggle room to types of blooms or flowers so long as they were within my color palette to match with our wedding colors. I approached Shannon with some ideas via Pinterest and told her I was open to suggestions. I sent her photos of what my grooms men and brides maids would be wearing as well as color schemes for our decor and Shannon literally brought my dream to life. I just described what I wanted and she asked specifics as to how high I wanted arrangements, what kind of mood or theme I wanted, how many, etc. Shannon and her team totally delivered. I couldn't be more pleased and all my guests complimented me on the flower arrangements. Shannon was prompt and very responsive to all requests or emails I sent to her. When I had mentioned I had issues with our photographer she even offered to do editing on the photos or retake photos as her business offers photo services. Had I known before what Shannon was capable of producing I would have totally gone with her for photography services as well. Would definitely use her again.Sent on 01/15/2017

Shannon and her crew were amazing! They captured some of the best moments at our wedding and our cinematic short film turned out better than we could have ever imagined. We will cherish the footage for the rest of our lives. Preserve Studio provided us with the most natural service. Easy going people that fit right in. I would recommend Preserve Studio to anyone that asked me! Keep up the great work!!Sent on 06/01/2017

Working with Shannon was wonderful our situation was very different.Sent on 01/22/2018
We first booked her in January 2016. I was thrilled to find this gem online and her artistic style is what captured me.
Our first venue was in the county she was in, later it didn’t fall through for financial reasons. We had already paid the deposit but could not afford the transportation fee to the new locations closer to home. So we were just going to take it as a loss. However, she was super helpful and kind in offering us a package to claim the shoot. I found this to be super above and beyond her call of duty.
We had scheduled a shoot, but with weather and family events we had to cancel several times.
Soon I got pregnant and we decided to do a shoot after he was a couple weeks as we would have a 5 hour drive.
My experience working and talking with Shannon has always been one with delight. She really cares about telling your story. She wants to capture your moments and that she does. She is very comfortable to work with and as I mentioned before her work is beautiful she is a total photo artist and invests in getting better.
I regret not picking up a second job to pay the additional fees to have her do our wedding since we weren’t satisfied with our video and photos seemed a bit too posed with the new photographer.
So please don’t make the mistake and invest in the most important part of your wedding the part that captures those memories.

I cannot say enough good things about Preserve Studio. Shannon, the owner, is warm, friendly and professional - and her work is second to none! She is a powerful storyteller and perfectly captured the love my husband and I have for one another. From day one, Shannon was very easy to talk to, answered all my questions, and communicated with me every step of the way.Sent on 09/14/2016
Preserve Studio created a Love Story Video, a Feature Film of our Wedding, and a Highlight Reel of our Wedding Day. Each film was unique and beautifully made. A noteworthy mention is that the staff members that Shannon sent to capture our wedding footage were phenomenal. They were courteous, made me feel comfortable, and most importantly, were barely noticeable (which is important because I didn't want to feel like I had paparazzi all around me distracting me on my wedding day). The video was well worth the investment. I would hire Preserve Studio again and again - they preserved one of the most memorable days of my life better than I could have imagined.
