SAMANTHA SHANNON PHOTOGRAPHY

I can’t wait to photograph Logan and John’s spring wedding!  They’re planning a fun red and teal themed wedding, and I love the way that they wove those colors into their engagement session too!  It’s such a great idea and really makes it so easy to display engagement photos at the wedding because they’re totally […]

I met Spencer and Vanessa last year, at their fall Champoeg Park session, and I couldn’t WAIT to photograph their wedding!  Their lives have taken them all over the country together, through grad school and several moves, but it’s only here and now that they’ve been able to get settled and plan a WEDDING!  Friends […]

Sorry, friends.  I obviously fell down on blogging this winter!  I tend to post weddings right away on Facebook and then dive into editing to get my couples their wedding photos back quickly, but I know they’re waiting for their blog posts too!  I’m doing some catching up this week, and I’m so excited to […]

Extended family sessions are so fun!  A lot of times, I think families really only get professional photos of the WHOLE family—grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, grandkids, everyone–at weddings.  Which is awesome and obviously something I enjoy, BUT–there’s a whole lot of life that happens before and after weddings!  There’s nothing better than photos like these […]

Oh boy, I LOVE it when old clients come back to me to update their family photos.  And it’s even MORE exciting when their family has GROWN since I saw them last!!  Their two girls are about as far apart as my kiddos are, but they’ve made it through the newborn phase while I’m still […]
