Shannon is seriously incredible!! Not only does Shannon take AMAZING photos, but she creates such a safe and warm environment for her couples to really capture the moments you'll want to cherish forever.
We hired Shannon last year for our intimate Big Sur wedding and, even with our plans changing and guest counts shifting, she was so positive and there to help throughout our whole experience together. We first worked with her for engagement photos in December where we got to explore all around Mt Tam and Stinson Beach on a beautiful cloudy day. She gave Zeke and I the space and confidence to explore, climb around rocks, and just be the goofballs we are. And the photos are seriously something else!! She got photos of us laughing, smiling, exploring, looking way cooler than we claim to be, and the whole session was SO much fun!
After having such a great experience with her for engagement photos, we had complete trust with her on our wedding day. She showed up as we finished up getting ready and captured some really important and emotional moments that I know I'll cherish forever. Then she was with us throughout the rest of the day - climbing around rocks, exploring along the coast, heading down steep trails, and capturing magic. All our friends and family absolutely loved her and we might be her biggest fans.
My favorite part of working with Shannon is her personality - she really helps create a calm and safe environment and allows couples to really be themselves. She has such a beautiful way of capturing natural light and environments and we are SO happy we were lucky enough to haver her with us on our wedding day. She offers lots of helpful directions and prompts to make sure you feel comfortable, but also allows space for you to be yourselves. I would (and will) forever recommend Shannon to everyone who will listen, she's the best!
