I know that budgets and numbers can be scary, but I just want you to remember that photos are one of the only things that you get to actually keep once your wedding day is said and done. These are the photos you'll look back on 10, 15, 30 years from now that will ignite visions of those core memories - the look on your partner's face when they see you for the first time, your dad walking you down the aisle, your best friend absolutely destroying it on the dancefloor. My pricing is calculated based off of equipment, experience, time, demand & expenses. I invite you to take a look below and decide if I'm the right photographer for you (and I sure hope I am!).



After the flowers dry up and the memories begin to fade, no matter how hard we try to hold onto them. . . What's left? Photographs.

My approach to photography is both artistic and unobtrusive, allowing me to capture raw emotions and candid moments without interrupting the flow of your once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

The Process

HOW IT WORKS

01

Fill out my contact form under the contact page and let’s chat! Tell me about your vision, your hopes and dreams, your potential venue/dates etc. I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

We'll stay in touch! I'll send you a questionnaire 3-4 weeks prior & then create a custom timeline in order to ensure things go as smoothly and stress-free as possible. Your timeline will let everyone know where to be when, and break down all family photos and portrait times throughout the day.

The time has come! I'll help guide you & your guests, take charge when necessary and fade into the background when the time calls for it. I'll be there to bustle your dress, fix your hair, snap selfies on your friends phones + be your personal hype girl. My goal is to make sure you have the best, most stress-free day!

Once you decide you’re ready to make some magic I’ll send you a contract + invoice, you'll send me a %25 retainer to secure your date, and once that’s complete, you’re officially booked!! Yay!

LOVE NOTES FROM

"Are you KIDDING with that gallery?! How did you do that?! Josh and I cannot believe that’s us. You are so immensely talented it’s insane. From the colors, to the motion in the photos, and the editing, we just had our jaws open the whole time. And cried a lot of happy tears haha! We had a little “date” and looked at the gallery at sunset on our balcony and still cannot believe we were lucky enough to have met you. I’m so excited to have your photos in our home for the rest of our lives and have our children someday see our wedding day captured through these pictures. It means the absolute world to us. I also have to thank you for something specific you did on our wedding day. When I had been concerned about being back at the reception and considered skipping out on going to the dock, you gently encouraged us to make the stop. Your encouragement to take time in that moment, and honestly throughout the day, made our wedding day feel like it moved almost at a slower pace. We felt like we got to enjoy every moment because we had someone like you there to remind us that it's okay for it to be about us. It’s something Josh and I talk about often and truly credit you for. So thank you so much for giving us that time. Truly, thank you so much for everything. So glad fate brought us together!"

"Oh my GODDD we absolutely could not wait to look at these. Shaina you outdid yourself, you were so amazing, the photos are incredible, we are so in love. The baby's photoshoot 😭😭😭 my heart!! I also need to say THANK YOU for doing your thing, I know there was a few times people requested you to take photos of stuff and times my anxiety also took over but the way you handled it and just like listened but did what you thought was best was so lovely and just very comforting as an anxious bride knowing that you just had it handled and very clearly knew what you were doing! You were incredible and I will be recommending you to everyone ever. Also your direction for posing and everything was so helpful and definitely shows in the photos!!!!! Thank you thank you thank you"

LOVE NOTES FROM

past

Shaina is not only such a pleasure to work with but a pleasure to be around! She has such a cool vibe and is so easy to get along with! Her work is BEYOND AMAZING! She has such a vision before the shot is ever taken and it truly shows with her high quality art! Shaina has that intuitive eye very few creatives have. We have worked together shooting weddings + elopements and her posing and leadership are beyond natural and candid + easy-going. She also recently took branding headshots for me, and despite self-consciousness, she captured the aspects of myself that I love. Shaina is truly an artist, an absolute gem, and someone you should dream about having shoot your wedding, elopement, or session! It's rare to find someone genuinely nice, non-judgemental, and absolutely genius when it comes to their field. If you're looking for a sign to book Shaina - THIS IS IT.

LOVE NOTES FROM

past

"Working with Shaina was by far the bestttt experience I’ve ever had with a photographer, which didn't surprise me since I've been following her for years and always loved her work and energy. She was so sweet and genuinely seemed to care about us as a couple which I really appreciated. She nailed the boho aesthetic I wanted for my elopement, and even cried with us at one point! And I was so relieved to have her help in planning our big day since I had no idea what I was doing or what to expect. Absolutely the BEST investment my husband and I made when we chose our vendors. I can't recommend her enough and will be singing her praises to anyone and everyone who's ever in the market for a photographer!"

Sounds like we're a perfect match! I've always been a very hands-on photographer, willing to do whatever it takes to get "the shot". Plus I love a good adventure, trying new things and any excuse to get out into nature. Just let me know what you're thinking and chances are, I'm in!
