We are Shannon+Jake and we are wedding + portrait photographers living in eastern West Virginia. We recently moved to a beautiful cabin in the mountains from Colorado. We got married in 2007 + have amazing identical twin daughters.
We love hiking + movies + enjoy creating meaningful moments with family + friends. When we aren’t working, you can find us with our twins, hiking, traveling or off at the movies.
We love being able to capture real moments. We love the saying, “Collect moments, not things”. We want to capture all the little moments that happen. They are the ones that are so real. We also love adventuring through the woods, on the mountains, in the cities. We love working with laid back + fun people who love adventures + creating memories!
Coffee + wine aficionado. Lover of finding creativity in all the little moments that happen. I love mostly anything to do with the outdoors (except bugs and being cold in the middle of Denali) and traveling.
PLACES I HAVE LIVED:
Florida, West Virginia, Virginia, Texas + Colorado
I loved a month-long trip with my family when I was younger. We got to see so many things (Grand Canyon, San Francisco, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Chicago). I also loved going to Canada + Alaska for a 2+week trip filled with backcountry camping and amazing views!
FAVORITE MOMENTS (in photography):
I love hiking and adventuring to new places with our couples/clients. I also love capturing the real moments; the tears of joy, the love.
