Hello, I am Shanell and I absolutely love what I do! I am a mom and and a full time hybrid photographer who has a dream and desire to make every wedding and session the best and better than the last. I strive to keep things creative and not boring. Mentoring with some of the best in this business, I push myself to grow and learn everyday. I am always looking for the opportunity to capture something great for my clients and do what I can to tell your story. One's wedding day can be stressful, but working in this industry for over 11 years doing hair and makeup I had a good idea of that before joining the photography side of things. That experience and knowledge has helped me to help my brides and grooms relax and just enjoy their day. I want all of my clients to have fun, be natural and engage in the ones they love so that they can have the most amazing, raw photographs possible.
Hi, my name is Andrea Walker and this is my fourth year being a professional makeup artist specializing in bridal makeup! I started off as “self taught” but I really wanted some extra training to stand out from the competition, so I flew to Dallas in May of 2015 and took a masterclass with professional MUA, Amy Clarke. Later that year, Tamanna Roashan brought her masterclass to Detroit so I got certified through her as well. It was Spring of 2015 when I met Shanell. She did my sister in law’s maternity pictures and since then we have been brought together more every year through clients and projects. I am so excited to be working with Shanell as her assistant this year and can’t wait to see where our bridal journey takes us!
I'm Stephanie! I will be assisting/second shooting for Shanell this year and taking weddings on in 2018 as an affiliate photographer. A little about me, I am a mom of four crazy, wonderful children. I have lived all around the Detroit area, moved away for 11 years, and now am back in West Bloomfield. I enjoy being outdoors and traveling with my family. I am also a bit obsessed with photography, which is why I love my job so much! My number one goal is that you are comfortable in front of my lens. I enjoy bringing people's personalities out in their portraits and strive to maintain a clean and timeless look to my images.
