About Us

Hi, I’m Shannon. My pronouns are they/them. I’m a Philadelphia-area photographer with +12 years of experience, focused on capturing weddings, elopements, microweddings, family sessions, and portraits. As a wedding photographer, I document candid moments as they happen. I like telling the genuine story about your day, imperfections and all. That doesn’t mean I won’t be there to help keep everything running smoothly and assist in offering poses that feel natural to you. Who is the human behind the lens? I live in the suburbs with my ginger-haired partner (Pete) and our two young kids. We also reside with a dachshund named Dexter and a 15-year-old chinchilla named Maude. When I’m not taking photos of people who love each other, I can be found overwatering my plants, trying to feel in control by creating checklists, taking anti-racism courses, connecting with community through Mighty Networks memberships, and listening to podcasts. I identify as non-binary, queer, and disabled and diversify my media feed to reflect these identities and learn more about how I can better serve my community, through intersectionality and the amplification of BIPOC voices. I’m fully vaccinated and mask up indoors and outdoors when unable to socially distance, due to COVID-19. I’m also the founder of Youthphoria, a Philadelphia-based project dedicated to photographing trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming youth in the Philadelphia area at no cost, while providing an affirming experience that celebrates them along the way.
