Shannon May Brown

You deserve to have wedding photos you love. Not just now, not just tomorrow, but forever. I specialize in bright, romantic, and timeless imagery for unique and joyful couples worldwide. 

I live and serve in the Bay Area (including Livermore, Napa, Sonoma, Big Sur, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, and Santa Cruz) but I also have the privilege of photographing weddings worldwide—Europe has a special place in my heart because I lived there for six months and have had the opportunity to photograph 16 countries in Europe!

The people I work with come from all walks of life and backgrounds, and I truly appreciate that photography grants me the opportunity to make so many new friends.

You can't wait for the epic dance party at your wedding and have your DJ or live band already picked out.

You love to travel and are planning your wedding in Europe (I've been to 15 European countries...needless to say I'm obsessed).

You love dogs and you want to bring yours to your engagement session (yes yes yes!)

You value balance, time outside, and time spent together. You care about the details, but the people matter most. 

Photography is something you value, and you want photos that withstand trends and are timeless in editing.

"Shannon was so fun to work with! She helped capture our engagement event and was even accommodating when we had to change days due to bad weather. She had some sneak peek pictures to us by that night and pictures within days! On top of professionalism, she was such a sweetheart and pleasure to work with, thanks again Shannon!"

"She was such a pleasure to work with."
