SAMANTHA SHANNON PHOTOGRAPHY

Trini and Travis are getting MARRIED in a few weeks at a super epic celebration that includes ROCK CLIMBING!  So, naturally, we had to create some super epic engagement photos!  We met up at Rood Bridge Park so we’d have plenty of space for them to hang out with their sweetheart of a dog.  She […]

This sweet family met up with me on a hot & humid evening for some updated family photos!  We decided to use a little park near my home that I LOVE to shoot at because it gets such pretty light!  (And check out that cool bridge: it’s my three-year-old’s favorite place to pretend to be […]

True story: I grew up with the momma in this Jenkins Estate family session: sharing lockers at Aloha High School, passing expertly folded notes, and gossiping about all things late 90s (read: Britney Spears).  We rocked glitter makeup together at graduation and now, over a decade later, I got to photograph her and her family […]

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Lisa and Jason and their adorable daughter to photograph their engagement session!  We chose the Jenkins Estate in Beaverton for their photo session, so that we could take advantage of their beautiful gardens.  Lisa and Jason, congratulations on your engagement and I can’t wait for […]

This is one of my very favorite family photos.  My good friend and fellow photographer Halsey took us to Sauvie Island last summer and we finally did our own family photo session!  For years, especially before my son was born, I did elaborate setups with a tripod in front of our Christmas tree and then […]

Jenn and Joshua’s wedding at Yamhill Valley Vineyards in McMinnville was such a beautiful celebration!  The Willamette Valley wine country is truly one of my top five favorite places EVER, so I was thrilled to shoot there again.  We had a day of epic weather–thunderstorms that cleared for the vineyard ceremony, warm rain to dance in, […]

I loved planning this wintery maternity session with my friend Halsey over the holidays!  Since I met her, we’ve had so many photo session adventures (here and here, for example!), usually with our toddlers in tow.  This session though, we left the kiddos with sitters and headed out to McCormick Park in St. Helens for […]

I’m so excited to share this fall wedding at NW Portland’s St. Patrick’s Catholic Church today!  That moment between the flower girl and the bride as they were putting on their jewelry?  My FAVORITE!  I have been waiting to share that forever!  Thank you so much to Heather Fitch Photography for inviting me to assist […]

You might remember Daniel and Katherine’s riverside engagement session last fall–today I’m sharing their beautiful winter wedding!  They were married in early December at Union/Pine in Portland.  Daniel and Katherine, it was an honor to be a part of your day!

Emmy and Orion are the best kind of people.  They’re heck yes let’s go adventure to the park in the rain people.  They’re let’s go to our favorite place people.  Photographing and exploring a beautiful spot that they’ve spent many summer weekends at, and watching them have fun and love each other, is a pretty beautiful […]
