I am Shannon Montgomery, a wedding photographer who serves joyful, timeless brides in California and beyond.
I am here to serve you and the vision you have for your wedding day. Not into the giant crowd on your wedding day? I am 100% obsessed with intentionally planned, beautifully detailed micro weddings and elopements, too!
The other side of my heart for photography includes families, seniors, and lifestyle.
You are in the right place for colorful, timeless imagery that is authentic, natural, and simply "you".
Your love is bright and sweet, and your wedding images should be, too. Once the vows are said and the cake is cut, you dream of having images that represent your day in all its beauty, and the little moments in between. I provide an experience that stands the test of time.
"You know you're in love when you don't want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."
Shannon was such a joy to work with, she was so patient with my youngest who was less than pleased to have a stranger taking her picture. She made my kids feel comfortable and didn’t rush, I left feeling like we got some great photos. She was quick to get us the final product and they were perfection!
Shannon photographed our wedding in February 2020. We had a great experience working with her! She was organized, calm, easy to work with, and open to our ideas. She made the day stress free and flow smoothly. Our photographs are beautiful and our experience was wonderful. I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Shannon!
I have nothing but amazing things to say about my experience with Shannon! She captured every moment so beautifully and authentically on my wedding day (+ engagement shoot), and I couldn’t have been more happy with how stunning our photos came out. One of the most important things to look for when choosing a photographer is their ability to make you and your significant other feel at ease, and Shannon did exactly that! Thank you, Shannon, for being so kind and fun while working your magic! Truly a one of a kind photographer.
