capture the candid emotions on your wedding day


Congratulaations! You’re engaged!

From the moment you first inquire to the moment you receive your final gallery, I am here for you! I want to be so much more than just a photographer. I'm not the kind of person that is going to just show up at our session, pose you in multiple "prom-like poses," and cash the check. HECKKK NO. That is NOT what I'm about. I will send follow up emails and texts with tips, tricks, and advice. I'll keep checking in to see where you are and how I can help. I'm here to serve you. 

You want to grab a cup of coffee before our session? I'll meet you there. Want some flowers for your photos? I'll bring them. Nervous? Let's chat. What do you need from me? I’m in your corner. I’ll tell you to fix your hair if it’s flying out of place and I’ll let you know if your eyeliner is smudging.

You aren't just a "job" or a date on my calendar. You are so much more than that. You are someone I want to get to know. I want to laugh, joke, cry, and be weird with you. You are real and unique and I want the world to see just what makes you... YOU. Your passions, your dreams, your quirks, your story. I want to see the real, the raw, the authentic. I want to see YOU.

lets do this thing!



I'm stoked that you are here! I'm an Ohio based adventurer and photographer and the kind of girl who lives in sweatshirts and leggings, with my hair in a messy bun. Also, I'm a part-time brownie taste tester and a dog mom to the prettiest dog. Being real, raw, and authentic is something that I am passionate about; especially in my photography.

"Shannen is absolutely amazing!! From our first email I knew she was the perfect person to capture my wedding day!! She is extremely on top of things even through a pandemic. She took charge since I had NO idea what I was doing or needed to do for the big day! Never once did I regret my decision to have Shannen celebrate our special day!! I chose her and I'd keep choosing her. You can see and feel her passion!!! If you pick Shannen to show your special moments in life you WILL NOT regret it!!"
