Hi! I'm Shannon. I am a Mama to two red headed blue eyed babies and wife to a bearded mountain man. Fox & Owl is my love story with that man and it's a small whisper of my deep + intimate relationship with the natural world.
I'm a fiery woman as a Leo sun and Sag moon + rising. I cuss a lot and I break out into a terrible British accent when I'm excited - especially when I'm shooting with my clients. I love dark humor and I get tickled at the smallest things. You can find me at home with my fam and my dogs, deep in the woods howling at the moon, around a fire with an endless glass of Scotch (McCallan's, please), or enjoying a cuppa in my favorite coffee shop.
I have been a wedding and elopement photographer for 10 years. Telling love stories through art inspires me - just like folks in love. Part of my process is to get to know you well so I can meet you in a place of honesty and and vulnerability. It's a big ask but, that's where the magic is.
In short we let fox & owl medicine guide us. We asked for signs about our relationship and where it was headed. The universe sent us a red fox + barred owl, the rest is history!
We married way back in my childhood woods in 2010 with our family and friends standing in a circle around us. It was just us and our officiate in the center of the circle. It was sacred, hilarious, and completely us. That is one reason I love to photograph elopements. Our ceremony was about us and we fought for it. The culture surrounding elopements is changing, I like that folks don't have to fight so hard now. But, I want to give you permission to follow your heart and get married your way. It's about the two of you and no one else.
