I find myself helping my clients plan their elopements and intimate weddings more often than not, I have a lot of experience with planning and can help point you in a direction that fits your vision. I will ask you deep questions - about who you are as individuals and as a couple. I'll ask you about your vision and goals for the experience you see in your head. I was born and raised in these mountains and as an Animist, I have an intimate relationship with the land. This lends itself nicely to my knowledge of locations - nooks and crannies that aren't instafamous. Helping facilitate a space that is supportive and safe so you can feel free, known, and seen is what it's all about for me.

What is an elopement? For my clients it's an honest, intentional, and heart centered celebration of their union. Sometimes that involves just the two of them and me as their officiant on a mountain top during the moon phase that resonates with them. Sometimes it involves a couple of their dearest friends standing in a river at a waterfall  and  a blessingway with a  tarot  reading. Sometimes it involves their immediate family on the Blue Ridge Parkway and a cute reception afterward. The best part about elopements and intimate weddings is the ability to craft them so they're wholly and entirely yours.

My fiancé and I booked a session with Fox and Owl for our engagement photos. We are from Atlanta, and Shannon worked with us to find a great spot on the Blue Ridge parkway to capture our love of nature. We had so much fun at our session, and we are absolutely in love with our photos. Beyond the gorgeous photos, we feel like Shannon really captured who we are authentically as a couple. We can’t recommend Fox and Owl studio enough

I had the opportunity to work with Shannon doing a beautiful photography session in the woods and I couldn’t have been more pleased! She is funny, so down to earth and made me feel so beautiful! Thank you for all that you did!! I can’t wait to have another session soon!! ❤️

Words do not exist to describe just how great Shannon and Andrew are. I am convinced that no one else could capture our love like they do. They are an absolute dream to work with, keeping it chill and centered around couples. They will never make you feel awkward or uncomfortable, but have you laughing and reflecting on your love for each other. We have the most raw and real photos from our elopement to look back on and to share with our friends and family and that is absolutely invaluable. One million stars for being super rad people.
