Hi, I’m Shannon!

It’s so nice to meet you!

The stars have aligned and the Universe has brought us together for a reason!

I’m here to bring out the best in you, to shine light on your God given gifts, and to encourage you to make the most of the space in your life!

You are worthy of all the good life has to offer and it’s my mission to help you see that!


Dreams really do come true!

When my fiancé / accountant Alex sent me the listing for a house in Mt. Washington addressed 412 Eureka Street, I took it as a sign.

If you’re from Pittsburgh, you know that 412 is our area code here and the word “eureka” had me feeling as if I’d just discovered something spectacular!!! 💡

We booked a tour with our amazing friend and realtor, Emily Caudil and she got us in right away.

It was the first day of a “staycation” we planned in place of our cancelled honeymoon back in July. Who knew so much good would come of this Covid mess?!

My intuition spoke loud and clear the moment we walked through the door and I knew instantly that it was meant to be. We put an offer in that day, and by the end of August, I had the keys to my very own creative workspace.

It happened fast, but I felt in my gut that we’d made the right decision.

The space is ready for boudoir photography, brand and lifestyle sessions as well as hourly rental for fellow creatives.

In the new year, doors open for overnight stays and intimate events!!! Follow @eurekastudiopgh on Instagram for the latest news and giveaways!


Now booking 2022!


After 85 weddings and five years in the industry, I’ve learned that events are unpredictable. As your Creative Director, it’s my job to schedule ample time to produce quality work, while allowing you and your loved ones to stay fully present, relaxed and ready to soak up every moment of your celebration!


I’m a true believer in telling your story in a way that’s meaningful to you! Let’s choose a spot that’s near and dear to your heart and illuminates your style in the right way! Brainstorming this kind of stuff together will be so much fun and it’s going to help us get to know each other before your wedding day! Click here for a link to a full gallery!


You deserve to feel beautiful and worthy, just the way you are! Join me at Eureka Studio for a day of self-love and a major confidence boost! If you love the space, have it for your entire wedding weekend!! It’s a two bedroom home in Mt. Washington with a full kitchen, front porch and backyard space with access to tables and chairs for intimate events!


My selfie booth fits in just about any space and can be used in front of a backdrop or simply on it’s own! It’s included in my One Stop Shop Wedding Package or can be booked separately for showers, bachelorette parties or events leading up to the big day! Click here to learn more!

Shannon has genuine happiness and joy for what she does. Even throughout Covid she worked with us on all of our changes and provided input to make our lives easier. As it got closer to our wedding on 10/24/2020, we went over every single detail to fit everything we wanted in our busy wedding day schedule. She nailed every single aspect and made a clear impact. A lot of our guests gave us compliments on her professionalism and enthusiasm. I highly recommend her for everything from general shoots to your big day! She is AMAZING!
