I prefer an authentic, timeless style of imagery. I like to think of my style as romantic, yet fun and real. I love emotion and connections, and that is what I strive to capture through my lens. Everyone has a love story, whether it be your wedding day or welcoming a new bundle of joy to your family. I view each wedding and portrait session as a chance to capture the love story at hand and it makes my heart so happy to be able to do so.
As a hybrid (film and digital) photographer, my preferred style incorporates the most natural light as possible! I love timeless and classic styles with a hint of restoration hardware. Earth tones are always my favorite as they keep that organic feel. Our world is so beautiful, look around you for color inspirations! I do love to travel, so what better than for weddings. I am always up for an adventure, and my travel fees are minimal.
Most importantly, I love when my couples find ways to incorporate their personalities into their big day.
At both your engagement session and wedding day, I want your experience to be fun, romantic and you. When shooting you wedding or engagement, I will approach it with both lifestyle and fine art vibes. I want you to have those images you put up on your mantel yet also the images you can look at and laugh, cry, and can put you back in the moment. From the pretty details to the raw emotions, I want to be there to capture your love story.
Most my couples spend $3600 or more on their full wedding experience investment.
I look forward to chatting!
lifestyle portrait sessions are more than just look at the camera and smile. I want to capture your family playing and laughing, your son or daughter hugging you and playing with your hair as you dance in a field. I want to capture your growing belling as your other half gazes into you eyes with amazement. The first days at home with your new baby as you change and care for this little life you've been blessed with. The moments I strive to capture are the moments you will remember forever.
Lifestyle portrait sessions starting at $400
Shanell is professional, creative and has a natural talent for photography!! Our wedding photos were phenomenal!! We highly recommend her!!
Shanell is amazing! I am SO glad she was recommended to me by several of my friends. She's such a nice person and so talented. I've followed her on social media since booking her and have loved every single photo she's posted. We recently received our engagement pictures and we LOVE them!! Shanell made the day fun and easy. She was all for doing our sports themed pictures and capturing them exactly how we wanted them! The time flew by and she got so many great shots. We are so glad she will be doing our wedding pictures as well. It's a great feeling to not have to worry how your pictures will turn out because you trust your photographer 100%. I would recommend her to anyone!!!
Amazing, flexible and great with kids!!! From start to finish Shanell really put me at ease through the whole process of our photography session. I was so worried my 2 year old wasn't cooperating enough to capture some great shots...but she sure did!!! She was so patient with my son and really took the time to make us all feel comfortable and have fun!!!

The following program has been designed for those who would love to be an SP Bride or Couple, however maybe I am already booked for your date or slighty out of budget? I have taken a great deal in educating my assistants and am super excited to say for the first time I can now offer and Affiliate SP Photographer! Stephanie has been trained by myself and other great photographers in the industry and as of 2018 will be taking on weddings under the SP family name. All photography will still be approved through myself and edited to resemble the SP brand and look.
Most couples choosing this option will spend $2,250 or more on a full wedding day collection.
