About Me

Featured as one of the highest-rated photographers in San Francisco!


Hello! My name is Shannon, I live in San Francisco, and this is how my face looks most of the time.

The photography obsession began when I got my first job at a neighborhood 1-hour photo lab. Every day after school I was mixing chemicals, maintaining the equipment and learning the science of color correction. Inspired by the photographers I was working under, I commandeered my mother's DSLR to shoot experimental and often theatrical portraits of my (very patient) friends. Soon after sharing my work online, my weekends began to fill up with paid work. By the time I graduated high school, I had a hearty clientele which would expand throughout my college years. 

In college, I was a second-shooter for a number of renowned wedding photographers, and became exceptionally adept at cosmetic retouching. I began to take on larger clients and booked my first wedding in 2014. Since then, I've collaborated with makeup and hair artists, floral designers and destination venues to create stunning imagery for my clients. Let's see what we can create together!
