As a former ladder-climber in Corporate America, I have a sales and marketing background that lends itself well to commercial photography as well. I enjoy highlighting products and businesses and contributing in some small way to their overall growth. My clients past and present have included: Cintas Corporation, ASSA ABLOY, Henry Ford College, Visual SKUs and many others. If you're not here for wedding photography, you can check out my published commercial work here.

I specialize in weddings because I love documenting others’ joy and happiness. I believe love is love and everyone has a story worthy of being told. As an award-winning wedding photographer, I’ve photographed over 300 weddings and I’ve worked for some of the most prominent studios in Michigan.  

I'm Shannon & I love weddings.

Oh hey there!

But that's not all I do...

I believe that photography is a storytelling art form and my job is to tell the story of your wedding day by capturing not only the big obvious events, but also the little, in-between moments and the genuine emotions that they evoke. 

I tell the story of your day with bold colors, dramatic and crisp imagery and an incorporation of surroundings and symmetry. My style is a mixture of photojournalistic, candid and traditional imagery.

capturing the little moments, boldly.

I hail from an Italian family where pasta is a food group and hugs are mandatory.

I love Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac, but I can also name every Arcade Fire song. If I wasn’t a photographer, I’d definitely be doing something in the music industry. 

4. I'm a huge music fan...

and I can usually make pretty much anyone laugh. It’s my super power for making people feel at ease. I once quoted lines from “The Office” for an entire 8 hour wedding just to get genuine smiles from a camera-shy bride. It worked!

5. I love a good joke...

organize everything and I don’t miss a detail.
