Newborns, Nuptials, Proposals, and everything in between.

Love is my specialty! 

With more than 100 weddings and nearly a decade of production experience under my belt, I’ve learned what my clients value most. It turns out, it’s not the epic drone shots, or the exotic locations or the artistic poses that bring them to tears….

It’s the RAW, natural, candid moments.

The in-between stuff…

*Quite mornings at home with warm coffee & extra snuggles

*The smell of fresh flowers picked straight from the garden

*Spilled popcorn and belly laughs on the living room floor

*Stollen kisses on sunset walks around the neighborhood

*Running for cover in the unexpected rainstorms

*Spontaneous tickle fights and EVEN peed pants!

*When mom and dad see their little girl for the first time in her wedding dress

*That brief moment grandpa joe makes it out to the dance floor and stands from his wheelchair

I set out to document this kind of magic. The spectacularly, ordinary, magically divine miracles that make up your story.

Weddings, birthdays and anniversaries give us an obvious reason to celebrate, but why stop there?

No matter what’s happening in your life at the moment, you’ve got a story to tell: a legacy.

So, how do you want to be remembered? 

On my wedding day, my mom and I danced to the classic “I hope you dance” by Lee Ann Womack. It’s been our song since before I can remember.  She even had a friend of mine perform it as a surprise gift at my bridal shower. 

The chorus goes like this… 

“I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens. Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance, and when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance.”

My mom has always encouraged me to live a full life with an open heart and it’s her legacy that I want to pass along to the next generation. Won’t you dance with me?


I am a true believer in telling your story in a way that’s meaningful to you!  Let’s spend a morning strolling through your favorite local farmers market or an evening building pillow forts and eating popcorn on your living room floor. Or… if you’re willing to trust me and you’re up for a little adventure, I’ll do all the planning and surprise you with an activity you’ll love! Better yet, I’ll help you surprise the person you love with the proposal or the date night of their dreams.  Brainstorming this kind of stuff together is going to be so much fun!

I help creative business owners build trust and likeability with their idea clients by providing them with beautiful branded content to share across their platforms.

My favorite part about Salsa is that he’s not just a photo booth! He’s a video booth too!! You and your guests can take photos, capture boomerangs, and gifs, and record video messages up to 2 minutes long with a handy dandy Bluetooth microphone. PLUS, all the goods are uploaded on the spot to a live gallery for safe-keeping and 24/7 access!

During the event, you and your guests can text or email the images to your phone or download them all at once the minute you get home. Imagine waking up the morning after your wedding and scrolling through the hilarious drunken messages from your friends and family before you even get out of bed!  Who needs prints?! Let’s save the environment!

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!
