“So glad you could document our special day for us…You are the BEST! The photos were so so fun, and the lighting was great. Looking forward to reliving my favorite day.“ Jason and Amanda, Wedding Photographs
“I trust Shanna and Jeff with all my BIG moments I want photographed in life (the little ones too!!), here is why: After I got engaged I went searching for the PERFECT photographer. It is very important that my special moments of these big days ahead are captured. These events aren’t able to be duplicated so there is no room for error. I met Shanna and her husband Jeff. I have to tell you I am so blown away by this experience. The entire process of taking the photos has been fun. I wish I could underline that word FUN, because that’s a big deal. With someone else this could have been some of the most stressful moments. But instead of feeling stressed, I feel confident, calm and I am having fun! All of those feelings shine through my photos! It’s crazy how much better a person looks in their photo when they feel confident! Meeting with Shanna and Jeff: Shanna first of all LISTENS to make sure she understands what needs to be captured. What exactly am I looking for? What a nerve wracking question!! I had some answers but others I was clueless on!! She gently asks probing questions that helped me think through and plan the photos. At times even helping me fill in the gaps of what I truly was after. Which leads me to a second thing Shanna does or rather IS- she is a wealth of information on how to accomplish the right shots!! She works with you and outlines the ideas and plans it out. (What is the best light, what is the best area– we should bring smoke bombs– **I am serious about that- smoke bombs!** She is a genius!). When it’s time for the photos she is fun and friendly, offering extra tips and suggestions to get the perfect angles. What she captures is breath taking. Jeff and Shanna also have trusted business connections in the community and when I asked they were able to help me find the perfect hair and makeup team. I recently got my link to my engagement session from Jeff and I have to say, I was speechless. Everything was spot on, even some things I hadn’t thought of yet but Shanna knew I’d want. This goes beyond the general look of the photos, which I had to rate on a “Great and Greater” scale (I could not find a bad one and I am PICKY). What truly makes Shanna stand out– she actually captured our love! It’s there in all the photos. They aren’t fake looking or staged. They are real. I have had years of experience working with photographers due to my profession. I’ve worked with some of the top names across the nation and I can honestly say– they do not hold a candle to Shanna and Jeff. I recommend Shanna Paxton Photography to YOU. Don’t take my word for it though, meet with them. **Shanna and Jeff, thank you for all your effort in bringing to print what was in my mind. I can’t wait for my wedding photos (and then anniversary and family portraits anddddd so many other events)! Crystal Evans,a.k.a 96.9 KAYO Girl Crystal” – Crystal, Engagement and Wedding Photographs
