Wedding and natural light portrait photographers, we started capturing the lives of others in 2009 and have been in love with love ever since.

Everyone likes to know what to expect, right?

And we certainly love hearing back and knowing how we did on the job.

Which brings us to the praises that are sung by our clients.

It's okay, we love them back just as much.

" We got married in August 2016 and knew that pictures were going to be very important to us! With that being said, money was a consideration and we found Shannon to fit our needs & budget 100%! We were able to have 2 photographers, 8 hours of coverage, engagement photos and a wedding book for half the price of what other photographers were charging. And her photos were EVEN BETTER than those photographers! She made us feel comfortable during our photo shoots and had us laughing a lot. On our wedding day, she got all the shots I requested and made sure we were taken care of throughout the event. " - Britni
" Shannon was incredible to work with, extremely professional, and very friendly. Our entire wedding party sang nothing but praises for her work, her personality, and how smooth the experience was to work with her. Not to mention the quality of her pictures are phenomenal! My husband and I loved sitting down with her and telling her exactly what we wanted and were given exactly that in our pictures and service. She was willing to travel and even came to see my venue with me to get a sense of what she was working with. Could not have asked for a better quality photographer and individual to capture our favorite day ever! " - Maryl
" Shannon was the best photographer I could have asked for! Her pictures are amazing and she really cares about her clients. We met several times and despite the fact we live far from each other, she was super flexible and made the process very easy. I was able to put all my trust in her. On the day of the wedding, she took charge and made sure everything I wanted was played out. She pays attention to the details...for example, when taking family photos making sure everyone had their sunglasses off, positioning people so that it looks best, and making sure my necklace was placed properly during our photos. I would recommend Shannon without hesitation to anyone. She was also one of the most affordable photographers that I could find. If you book with Shannon, you are in GREAT hands and have nothing to worry about! " - Private client
" Shannon did an absolute phenomenal job photographing our wedding! She made us feel very comfortable, which made the whole day go by much smoother. The photos turned out beautifully! All of our friends and family were very impressed! I highly recommend Shannon to everyone!" - Heather
"  Shannon did both my engagement session and my wedding day photography. She did a great job on both occasions. Super friendly, very easy to work with and gives direction well. Shannon was always very responsive to any questions my husband and I had and is very professional. Although it took around 6-8 weeks for us to get our photos Shannon was upfront about the turnaround time and we feel that we got a great deal on beautiful photos! " - Amy
" Shannon always responded to any inquiry very quickly with adequate answers to my questions. I had a little bit of a different situation and she was very flexible and understanding. As a photographer myself, the quality of the photos was most important to me. I am extremely pleased with Shannon's work and would recommend her to anyone looking for great value at an affordable price." - Kristin
" Shannon Karmel Photography is the best photographer I have had! She is a family owned business. She is very personable with a creative mind and eye for photography! She puts over 110% into her work. She is there with you the entire day of the wedding no matter how early or how late. Shannon Karmel is very organized and precise with her work. I love how strong she was with a huge family that had several ideas of how our wedding photography should go. She listen to what we had planned out weeks in advance and if anyone tired to change my vision she was sure to stay in line with what the bride and groom wanted. I am her biggest fan! I would recommend anyone to her! Her photography is stunning, beautiful, breath taking, and the list goes on! " - Bindy
