  • Words can't even describe home much we LOVE Shannon and her work. When we were looking for our wedding photographer, personality was extremely important to us and let me tell you, Shannon has an amazing one. She is kind and sweet but knows how to take charge and always has your best interests at heart. From our first Skype meeting, Owen and I knew she was the one. Our engagement shoot was beyond amazing - she captured us perfectly and was able to use tons of natural light. I instantly felt comfortable with her. Shannon was there every step of the way as we planned our wedding (and I will be honest - i texted/emailed/frantically called a ton of times and she was always there to talk me through everything). On the day of, Shannon and Charlie seriously made the day run so so so smoothly while still making sure we got all of the shots we requested. The ones I have seen so far are INCREDIBLE and I am so excited to see more and relive the big day all over again. Do yourself a favor and snatc... Read more

  • I cannot emphasize enough how talented Shannon is! On our "getting to know you" zoom meeting, she made us laugh with her fun and outgoing personality and asked tons of questions (most of which we didn't have the answers to)- which ultimately was super helpful because she helped us create our day-of timeline for the wedding and planned all of our family photos to make sure we got pictures with everyone! Shannon is so organized and experienced, which was very helpful for my husband and I because we haven't attended many weddings. Our first experience working with Shannon was at our engagement photoshoot. We instantly felt so comfortable with Shannon due to her jokes and silly ways of getting us to laugh with each other. The pictures were gorgeous, featuring a beautiful sunset on a mountaintop! For our wedding day, we opted to add Shannon's husband Charlie to take pictures as well. This was such a good decision because while I was getting pictures with my bridesmaids, Charlie was t... Read more

  • I highly recommend Shannon to be your wedding photographer! She did an absolutely amazing job, both with our engagement photos and wedding day! From detail shots to portraits, the photos came out so beautiful. She was extremely nice and you could tell that she cares about her clients and ensuring that their day is memorable! With COVID-19 and all of the regulations, Shannon took the time to make sure that we were comfortable and safe, and she took all of the necessary precautions when photographing our day. Shannon was very professional, and she really captured the most beautiful moments on our wedding day. Our families have told us how wonderful she was and were very impressed with her photography. Overall, we had such a great experience working with Shannon, and would definitely recommend her!!

  • Working with Shannon was amazing. She was responsive, organized, and hilarious. We ended up wanting the reschedule our engagement photoshoot because the foliage wasn't ready and it wasn't an issue finding a new time with her. On our wedding day she was timely and helped guide us through the day. It was so helpful to have her with us. She even went to get my sweater for me when it got cold and I didn't even ask. My husband hates getting his picture taken but Shannon worked her magic and our engagement and wedding photos came out fantastic! We are SO happy with the pictures and were very excited to share them. I highly recommend her!!!

  • Shannon is amazing! Not only did she come through for us last minute when COVID changed our wedding plans but SHE WAS A ROCKSTAR. I had so many people compliment me on my choice of a photographer! Shannon is the kind of photographer that you want there on your big day: she is present but not overwhelming; she's engaged but not pushy; she's not afraid to tell your grandparents what to do and where to stand but she's so dang sweet. I LOVE our photos and would wholeheartedly recommend Shannon for your next event.

  • I cannot say enough about how happy my husband and I are that we hired Shannon as our photographer. We have had so much fun with her, every step of the way. Not only are her pictures beyond gorgeous, but she is an exceptional professional. Like many, we had to shift our wedding plans this year because of Covid. Shannon worked with us to capture the most important moments of our day, and use her time with us most effectively. We were blessed with beyond gorgeous sunshine, but this meant shifting where we took photos because of shadows and people. Shannon was quick to communicate with us and our bridal party so we all knew what was happening. She remained calm, even when we were a little behind, and helped calm my nerves immensely. We also hired a second photographer (her husband Charlie) who so graciously walked around our venue trying to locate my Dad who got a little lost. Shannon and Charlie make an incredible team, and it truly makes a difference having both of them. Charlie was... Read more

  • From our first meeting to the day our photos were ready, working with Shannon was easy and fun. We had a very small wedding, and Shannon was able to provide us with a custom package to fit our needs and budget. She was always quick to respond with any questions we had, and her online portal made communication and payments even easier. On the day of the wedding, Shannon went WAY above and beyond by helping me get into my dress (it was a bit more than she anticipated 😂). She also was amazing at keeping track of time to make sure things flowed smoothly. Throughout the ceremony and reception, she was friendly, extremely patient, and professional but we never felt like she was “in the way.” She has such a great personality that she felt more like a friend and guest than a vendor. The final product was amazing. I was astounded by the sheer volume of photos that she took. It literally took over an hour just to look through them all. And they were all so lovely. She captured mome... Read more

  • Shannon was amazing! Her photos from our recent wedding are beautiful, and I know we'll treasure having them for a long time. She was really friendly and great to work with. She did an excellent job, both with giving directions for posed photos as well as capturing candid moments of our friends and family having fun. Would definitely recommend her 100%! Thanks so much Shannon :) -Steph and Josh

  • My husband and I absolutely loved working with Shannon for both our wedding and engagement photos! Shannon is incredibly responsive, flexible, and super fun to be around. She always made us feel comfortable and relaxed, which ultimately made for very natural and beautiful photos. The photos capture different sides of us – romantic, silly, nervous, excited – and they feel like a true representation of our day. Shannon also did a great job of interacting with our guests and we have great photos of all 120 of them! We're so grateful for our photos and to have had the opportunity to get to know Shannon. You certainly won't regret if you do the same. :)

  • From our first phone call with Shannon, I felt at ease with her. I knew our big day would be stressful and I wanted our photographer to be someone I felt comfortable with. She won me over with her dad jokes, and I told her to bring that A game with her! Shannon and her husband Charlie, who was helping her, had gotten married at our venue (Montague Retreat Center) and so knew the space well from both sides of the camera. The photos look great and we even got them back sooner than she estimated!

  • We hired Shannon to shoot our wedding in the Berkshires and were incredibly happy with the experience. We would definitely recommend her services! Shannon was a pleasure to work with from our first call together up through the actual wedding day. She’s friendly, a truly skilled people person (she quickly learned all the names of our family members), and clearly sees herself as part of your team on your wedding day (I didn’t take her up on it, but she even gamely offered to help hold my train in the bathroom). She was an incredibly positive presence and really helped put us and our families at ease. Perhaps most importantly, Shannon captured truly beautiful candid and staged photos in both color and black-and-white. She also took lovely photos of the setting, including the ceremony site, reception tent, and other decor. For our couple photos, she shot us in several locations and permutations (standing still v. walking, looking at each other v. looking at the camera, etc). I f... Read more

  • There are truly no other words to describe Shannon and her business when it comes to wedding photography. Her prices were not only reasonable, they were truly amazing compared to other vendors. She was professional, friendly and completed everything in a timely manner. If you are in the Massachusetts area (or even in the MA / CT / RI / Southern New England area), at the very least give Shannon a call and see if she's right for you. My wife and I were thrilled with the pictures and their quality.

  • Shannon was so prepared, yet was also so flexible, she listened to all my family’s crazy photo requests but always had Cody and I in priority. She made Cody and I comfortable which made picture taking smooth and fun! Multiple guests and family members approached me to tell me how she really was great at what she did. We also had her husband come which was so helpful. I definitely recommend getting her and her husband because together they make a great team! She also got the photos back to us quickly and took so many amazing pictures! Overall, we had an amazing experience with her.

  • Shannon and her husband Charlie were phenomenal photographers. My husband and I could not have been happier that we hired them. They kept the photos fun, made it work with the weather (nor’easter and ~40 degrees in October), and let us be ourselves while providing some direction to get the perfect photos. The photos are beautiful and feel like us. We’ve already recommended Shannon to our friends and plan on recommending her to anyone we meet who needs a photographer.
