Fantastic Wedding Photographer

Reviewed on 5/28/2014 Jessica B

Shannon is an amazing wedding photographer. We used her services for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. I really appreciated that she met with us several times before the wedding to be sure she knew exactly what we wanted including specific pictures, who needed... Read More to be included in each set of pictures and the timing of the day. She was very efficient and was able to get every photo we wanted and more without being obtrusive. The photos turned out beautifully and I can't wait for our album to come in. I would definitely recommend Shannon to any couple looking to get married in the greater Denver area.

Shannon at Adore Photography was the BEST photographer ever!! She's one of those photographers that can really capture moments not just take pictures. I cried looking at her previous wedding albums the first time I went to see her because they were so beautiful and you could... Read More feel the moments in the wedding days she created. Not only does she take the best photos I've ever seen she was also so wonderful to work with! I had trouble with each and every one of my vendors but her - she was an absolute joy to work with, super pleasant and on top of what needed to be done. The package and everything that is included is awesome too! I highly recommend her for weddings!!!!!

Great Experience

We had the greatest experience working with Shannon for both our Engagement and Wedding Day pictures. She was a true professional and also knew how to keep the mood lax when it was appropriate. We had over 25 people in our wedding party and never once were things confusing or... Read More disorganized as Shannon kept the party together and shoot moving right along. Our outdoor wedding was hit with a rain storm last minute so we were forced to move the ceremony inside, Shannon didn’t flinch having an inside routine to keep the night moving along which is key when you are paying a facility by the hour. Being from out of state we didn’t really know someone that knew someone that knew someone who could photograph our big day, so there was definitely speculation going into finding the right photographer but all that was put aside when we sat down with Shannon and laid out a blueprint for both shoots. She made a big wedding day task something neither one of us worried about so we could enjoy our day together.

I cannot recommend Shannon and Adore Photography highly enough! She was incredibly organized in the planning process and brought lots of helpful insight from her extensive experience. She did an incredible job suggesting unique and beautiful shots (especially helpful for those... Read More of us a little uncomfortable taking photos). She was also highly effective at organizing the crowd (including young children) while remaining very friendly and patient. In the end our photos are completely stunning. She is the perfect balance of friendly, warm, and professional. We are so thankful we were able to have her as a part of our wedding!

Shannon is amazing! She was extremely professional throughout the whole process. We were blown away from the first time we spoke with her. She was really helpful in suggesting other vendors, and she was honest about ideas that may not end so well (like a few odd poses or shots... Read More we wanted to do) which was really appreciated! We got a free engagement session with our package and were really glad that we did. We were kind of nervous going into the session, but were immediately relaxed thanks to Shannon. We were also glad for the shoot because it helped us see her in action! We had more of an idea what to expect on our wedding day because we had done a shoot with her. On the day of Shannon was a rock star! We were very concerned initially because our families are very loud and large, so we wanted to make sure that Shannon was someone who could control them! She did SO well! We had a ton of family members comment on our fabulous photographer! Of course, her style of photography was a huge reason we chose Shannon. We loved her previous weddings and our pictures were exactly the style we were looking for! I would recommend Shannon to anyone! She's simply amazing!

Shannon is simply one of a kind. From the moment my husband and I met her, her personality met ours. She was extremely professional, yet approachable and personable. I highly recommend the engagement session if you and your fiancee are not used to being the center of... Read More attention/directed.

Shannon is the absolute best, I would recommend her in a heart beat. Our wedding had all sorts of fly by the seat of our pants moments after it began to downpour on our outdoor ceremony in Grand Lake. I cannot say how thankful I am to have Shannon by my side throughout the day.... Read More She was the glue that kept us all together that day and remained calm and professional throughout the entire day. The photos she was able to capture were above and beyond our expectations. I am not a photogenic person and I even I loved the way I looked in both our engagement and wedding day photos. She captured so many special moments that remind me of exactly how I felt that day. It's only been two weeks since our wedding so I've only seen a fraction of the photos but felt such positive thoughts towards Shannon after our big day that I just couldn't wait to write a review for her!

I can't even begin to say enough good things about Adore Photography! Shannon was wonderful to work with and the special moments she captured are beyond anything we could have imagined. We were nervous about being photographed but she put us at ease and made the entire... Read More process painless. Shannon was always on time and quick to respond to our e-mails/phone calls.

Within a day or two of the wedding she posted a few preview pictures on Facebook and the rest of our pictures were not long behind them!

Best Vendor I Used

Shannon was highly recommend to me by another photographer and I understand why. She is the perfect combination of professional, fun, and easy going. Not to mention, her prices are great compared to other photographers. Shannon took our engagment pictures and wedding pictures... Read More for us and we could not be more pleased with how they turned out! When I began looking for a photographer, I did not realize how crucial your photographer is. She is definitely the vendor I communicated with the most and dealt with for the longest period of time. Shannon was so organized and on top of things, she made everything easier for me. Shannon takes the time to make sure your positioning is perfect in pictures, but she is fast and still very laid back. Our wedding album is beautiful and she got every picture that we asked her to take. She even stayed late at our reception to make sure she got all the main events. Can't say enough nice things about her! She is awesome!

Reviewed on 10/30/2011 Jennifer F

We were nervous about hiring a wedding photographer because we had other friends who had been very disappointed with the people they had hired. Shannon put us at ease the first time we met with her, because she listened and understood what we wanted. (We didn't want a... Read More photographer who was so visible during the wedding, that they became the main thing people were watching). Looking back to our wedding day, neither my husband nor I can remember seeing Shannon during the ceremony. And yet she captured all of the moments we could have asked for! She also did a fabulous job with the posed shots, and knows how to work with kids (who want to act silly), and how to get people to look good in pictures (by instructing them on where to put their hands, or how to look more relaxed). The proof is in the final results. We just received all of our photos from our wedding and they are absolutely phenomenal. High quality, and a variety of moments were captured. In fact, we are so happy with all of the images, we ordered a much larger album from Shannon than we ever would have planned on. The digital negatives are high resolution, and we just keep looking at them on the big computer screen, marveling at the beautiful color and detail. We can't believe how lucky we were to have found Shannon. Friends have also commented on how great our pictures are, and those who are already married have said that they want to hire Shannon if they do an anniversary event. Really, she's that good. I can't say enough.
