"Shannon is a phenomenal photographer who captured the most beautiful moments from our wedding week. Her energy, enthusiasm, and positivity put everyone at ease. The photos are stunning -- when I look at them, I don't just see how the wedding looked, but I remember how it felt. She is magic behind the camera.
