It is my passion as an artist and storyteller to create imagery that is joyful, romantic, authentic and ultimately beautiful.

I want to capture each and every client as they are, showcasing their love story. After shooting 100’s of weddings and serving this industry for over 13 years, I’ve learned more than anything how a day needs to be ran. Taking the days timeline into my own hands, has been one of the biggest benefits to my clients. Not only will you know where you need to be, when you need to be, I’ll be there helping to guide you. I want my clients to be able to fully intrust in me. Also trusting in my directional posing, management of your bridal party, and making sure your day is a flawless as possible.

I am inspired by the magic of love and wonder of this world, finding beauty in all the moments, from big to small. Finding joy and celebration in watching the story unfold and capturing it all, giving my clients a tangible heirloom of thier most cherished memories. 
Please explore my work and send me a note with any

Love, family and tradition bring warmth to our home.

Shanell is truly the best of the BEST!! My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Shanell for our wedding and engagement photos. Shanell made us feel comfortable and with her great sense of humor she was able to capture true and natural pictures. She made our special day so stress free. As a bride, I had no worries. Looking through our wedding pictures she captured every aspect of our day, leaving no details out. We will cherish these photos forever, and cannot wait to get them on our wall! Shanell was a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to using her in the future!


Growing up, my grandmother was always the "picture person" and moments documentor. I remember growing up and loving looking through all the albums she had created for our family. The albums were on bookshelf organized by years full of images to enjoy! 
This still resonates with me and is why I feel so passionate about what I do for couples and families.  My heart is so filled when I capture memories for others the way my grandmother was able to do for our family
