ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

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 adventuring through the woods, on the mountains, and in the cities.

Jake + I love being able to capture real moments; all the joy, tears, hugs and laughter. The saying, “Collect moments, not things” is our jam. We want to capture all the little moments that happen. They are the ones that are so real. We love working with laid back + fun people who love adventures + creating memories!
