Hey there, thanks for stopping by!
My name is Shannon, the face behind the camera of Shay Frances Photography!
Love is not everything to most people, but love is everything to me. It fills my entire life. It's in the music I listen to, the poetry I write, the TV shows I love to binge watch, and the people around me who are very important to me. Love is also the entirety of my career. Capturing your love and commitment to each other, and showing who you really are, and being able to really make it yours! It’s about you, your relationship, what makes you laugh with each other... what makes you love each other. The real, raw emotion of it all. That is why I LOVE love so much. That's why I want to tell your story with my photographs. The raw, authentic, intimate moments - those are EVERYTHING.
Photography has a special place in my heart and I love capturing those candid and love-filled moments for everyone around me. If you are celebrating a marriage, your family growing up together, an anniversary or anything that is important to you, send me a message and let me capture that for you. I want you to remember those moments that pass by in the blink of an eye forever!
Raw, authentic, intimate moments...
“We've had the pleasure of having Shannon shoot us in a variety of settings. From professional headshots to a couples session and our family photos, she absolutely nailed what we envisioned, plus some. From beginning... making it comfortable and fun, and catching us in candid, genuine shots, to end, with her GORGEOUS editing. We would refer her endlessly"

"Shannon is incredible. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with her for our engagement photos and on our wedding day! She is the most down to earth yet meticulous woman I’ve ever met. My husband has mentioned a number of times how comfortable he felt doing photos with her, as if it was a close friend behind the camera! On the day of our wedding, she didn’t allow for anything to cause stress or be out of place- and that went beyond photography. And of course our photos turned out amazing - better than we could have ever expected. If you are looking for a photographer for any reason at all- I suggest you send you this one a message ASAP! She is simply amazing at her job and an absolute treat to work with!!"

"I cannot stress enough how amazing Shannon is at her job. She is friendly, personable and makes you feel completely comfortable while exuding pure professionalism. It is beyond clear that she has the experience and knowledge that makes an amazing photographer. The finished products really speak for themselves. Every time I received photos from Shannon I have shed real tears. You can see the love she puts into her work.
I truly cannot recommend Shannon enough."

"Not being one to enjoy mingling in front of a lens, she picked up on my nervousness instantly, and in no time, her inherently warm and positive energy changed my shyness to excitement from the very first to the final click. Any insecurities either me or my fiance had were absolutely dashed the instant she guided us to create her artistic vision without losing sight of the REAL US. She is a composer of beautiful memories, an insightful and fearless professional. After working with her on our second set of photos, it was obvious to see just how much love she has for her craft, as well as how much she cares about those whose lives she’s touched. We CAN’T WAIT to have her work her magic on our big day!!!"
