Wedding Photography

The key to great wedding photography is variety. I make sure to get posed and candid shots so you have a lovely selection of images to commemorate your special day. I’ll be there to capture all the joy and happiness so you and your beloved can be fully present for each other.

My clients love their engagement sessions. They give us a chance to get comfortable with each other so wedding-day photos look their best. This will be one of the best days of your lives together, so you should look your very best in every photo.

Reach out about your wedding date and tell me about your day!

Kind Words

 She is so sweet and kind, and she works with you to make it special. 

Shanna has photographed me and my husband on two different occasions now, and she has done fabulous work. We felt so comfortable with her in our engagement photos, and she captured the perfect moments in our wedding. Hire this lady! 
– corporate sales and marketing manager Jaycee B.

Kind Words

She is such a genuinely energetic person. I absolutely love working with her and I’m so glad I found her.

We booked Shanna Paxton Photography for our wedding and had our engagement pictures done this last weekend. I can’t wait to see the end product. I also can’t wait to continue working with them in the future. 
-  Laura

Kind Words

She is a genius. She offers suggestions to get the perfect angles. What she captures is breathtaking.

I trust Shanna with all my big moments. These events can’t be duplicated, so there’s no room for error. I have to tell you I am so blown away by this experience. The entire process of taking the photos has been fun, and that’s a big deal. 
- radio personality Crystal E.

Investment

Perfect for your special day…
Engagement session, 4 HRs of coverage on the day, all images delivered on a cloud shareable with whoever you want. 

investment: $1500 

Book your date

If you think you need more time, we’ll be happy to add it to the contract. We do try to make that call at least a month before the wedding to aid our scheduling, but if on the day you find you need me to stay longer, I’ll invoice you for that time before I release the photos.

Additional coverage:  $250/HR
Perfect for those who have over 80 guests or have many traditional layers to their day.

It’ll take a minimum of four hours. That seems the perfect amount of time from getting ready to the reception.

I do some traditional adjustments but don't do much retouching in Photoshop. I find that when I use my equipment I don’t usually need to do that. However, once your photos are delivered, if you find you need some retouching we can refer you to someone we trust to handle that extra step.

Ready to have a fun photographer capture all the emotions of your wedding day?

Let’s meet!
