portland photographer



I am a photographer based in Portland, Oregon, but travel all over the world. I shoot on a Canon 5D Mark III and am learning how to use film!
I am a natural light photographer and prefer to use daylight over flash. 
I photograph all sorts of things, but my favorite is my husky. I can be talked into shooting weddings, elopements, engagements, senior photos, family gatherings, and just about anything else. I tag-lined my photography "rarely serious" because getting your picture taken can be awkward and weird and I'm here to make things a little less weird and not so serious.

Client praise

Shannon was such a wonderful photographer for our engagement photos! She is so nice, and so professional. I thought we would need to have poses planned out, but Shannon knows what she is doing and finds the right spots and right poses that are so beautiful! We were blown by the quality and beauty of our photos by her!! Not to mention how quickly she got them back to us. Shannon is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by us!

- Amy and Austin (engagement photos)

Shannon has a great eye for the art and was fun to work with. Efficient and quick getting the pictures back! Loved doing our family photos with her!

- Peyton (family photos)

I just wanted to tell you how incredibly awesome you and your second photographer were! You both were fun to be around and the pictures you showed us were incredible! I cannot wait to see them all!

Shannon was amazing for our family portrait. We had a hard time choosing an "official" one to use, especially since she caught our pets in really cute poses. She is professional, personable and a lot of fun!

- Gina (family photos)

Shannon is seriously amazing. She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, cheers you on and makes you feel like you are a million bucks. By the end of the shoot, I didn't even recognize the confident girl in the photos in front of me. Shannon is a dream and worth every single dollar. Thank you so so much!!!!!
