Shannon was the absolute best to work with! Their kindness, respect, and patience was so appreciated on our special day. They made us feel so comfortable on a day when our nerves could have gotten the best of us. The photographs came out even b...

Shannon came highly recommended from one of my co-workers, and after working with them I can absolutely see why! From the very first call with Shannon, I knew they would be a great fit for photographing my introverted groom and family. We had s...

Here’s what you need to know about Shannon Collins: They are a beautiful human being, inside and out, with a tremendous amount of kindness, care, respect and infinite talent. If you want photography that captures the spirit, essence, emotion of...
your love story, your family, your wedding day and beyond, hire Shannon. If you want a photographer who is actively trying to make the wedding industry and world a better place, hire Shannon. If you want someone by your side, who will make everyone feel comfortable and capture everyone, as their authentic selves, hire Shannon. And of course, if you want to nerd out over pop culture and have positive, affirming, supportive and fun communication leading up to whatever event or shoot, hire Shannon. It will be one of the best decisions you make.
I found Shannon’s work on the site, A Practical Wedding, and shortly after, my partner and I scheduled a video call with them. Immediately after talking with them, we knew we wanted them to be the person to photograph our engagement, wedding (and hopefully more in the future)! We just clicked. Their work is bright, airy, colorful and creative, full of details and unique composition. They make space for everyone’s requests and makes everyone feel at ease — whether it’s kids or you as the couple, so it doesn’t matter if you typically feel comfortable in front of the camera or not, Shannon’s personality and thoughtfulness makes you comfortable. Both for our engagement and our wedding day, they never over-directed us, they just let us be who we are and gave us the occasional suggestion for a pose, all while cheering us on. They graciously worked with us to move the date (twice!) when we had to postpone due to the pandemic, in addition to giving us emotional support during the process. Shannon also scouted our new venue with us when we moved location as well. They went above and beyond what we expected in every way.
TL;DR: Shannon Collins is an incredible person and photographer and my husband and I are so unbelievably happy that we hired them. Everyone in our family and wedding party adored them, and my mom, who is the biggest critic even said, “There’s just not one bad photo. They’re all beautiful,” and she’s 100% right.
Thank you, Shannon, for everything!

Shannon is the best, y'all. The absolute best. Where do I start?
As a person, she's incredibly sweet and so funny. Shannon had us cracking up the entire time we worked with her and she was always down to talk about reality TV. She's super easy ...
to communicate with and responds so quickly.
We worked with her for both our engagement photos and wedding day. In the middle of our engagement session, I turned to my then-fiance and was like, "You know what? I want to invite Shannon to our wedding." And then he reminded me uh, we already had in a way. Oops. She's that much of a dream to work with, that you feel like she's your new best pal after spending an hour together.
When it comes to pictures, Shannon's amazing. Both my husband and I wear glasses and that was a major concern for us. We wanted to make sure we had someone who could work with them, not have glare in all our photos, and also not ask us to take them off. It was literally not an issue at all for Shannon. Every photo is perfect. She captured our personalities so well and had us try fun poses that resulted in great pictures. If there was something we really wanted to do or take a picture with, she made sure to accommodate us and get all the photos we wanted.
On the day of the wedding itself, she was such a dream. Shannon was flexible in terms of schedule but still made sure we got all of our pictures. Everything went so smoothly and that is in thanks to her. Truly looking forward to working with her again for a family session.
I cannot recommend Shannon enough. She's the best.

made us feel like we were friends, which made getting our photos taken much easier. From the very beginning she helped us establish our timeline for the wedding day and this was incredibly helpful. She was anticipating questions before we even asked them and was super responsive to all of our questions leading up to our wedding day. She was a vendor that we had no concerns about going into the day. On our wedding day, she did a fantastic job managing the many different personalities. She has a natural positivity and happiness that helped to contribute to the positive vibe of our entire wedding day. Shannon was flexible throughout our day while keeping us on track. The second shooter that Shannon hired for the wedding day was also wonderful, very helpful and a great personality. After the wedding, we were very impressed by her quick turn-around with getting us our photos. We think that our wedding photos captured the day and night perfectly and recommend Shannon 1000000%!

time to get to know her clients and understand what you’re looking for. We communicated via email throughout the process, and she was extremely helpful in crafting a photo timeline that was tailored to our wishes.
On the day of the wedding, Shannon was basically a magician. You don’t even know she’s there and somehow she’s able to capture beautiful candid photos of every moment. My husband and I were both a little nervous about our very first photo shoot, but Shannon immediately put as at ease and never for a moment made up feel uncomfortable. We felt like we were just clowning around together for an hour, and somehow Shannon was able to turn that into these wonderful photos that really represent us and our relationship.
We received our final photos very quickly, and the online gallery that Shannon provided was easy to use and helpful for sharing with family and friends. Thank you, Shannon!

tible, and we immediately started to talk not only about the details of our day but also our favorite Netflix shows. Meeting her for our engagement shoot, she was immediately friendly and reassuring, following us around a flea market with a camera. It was a joy to have her at our wedding! She sent us over a 1000 photos edited within a week of our wedding day. Her images perfectly captured the love, fun and color that we hoped to would shine through at our wedding. It was so great to relive the day through Shannon's beautiful photos. Her casual, unstuffy approach was so US- she doesn't take herself too seriously which is perfect when you really just want candid photos of yourself laughing and enjoying your big day with your best friends and family. That is not to say she isn't serious about her photography. She is a pro, and produces really beautiful work. HIRE SHANNON! You'll love her too.
