Memories and More specializes in a photojournalistic style of capturing what should be one of the most precious moments of your life. I believe that wedding photos should tell the story of your special day. My favorite quote is “We do not remember days. We remember moments". Your photos should be a reminder of all the special “moments” that you had throughout your day. When you look back at your photos you will want to relive each memory and emotion that was created by that moment in time. Each moment of that day is one to be cherished. That is why I don’t hire for the hour but for the day. That day my number one priority is you and capturing all those moments of the day in a non intrusive way.

I am a very personal photographer and will develop a relationship with you prior to your wedding. I want you and your family to feel relaxed around me. That way when everyone is gathered together there is a fun & relaxed atmosphere. That it is when the best natural photos are taken. Posed & traditional photos are important but so are the little moments when you don’t realize I’m taking your photo. Those are the ones you look back on with fond memories of the day.

I do work with a second shooter to ensure that nothing is missed during the day and that all angles are covered. I would love to discuss building a relationship with you and helping you create and preserve the moments of your wedding. I have a complete album of other couples who have already entrusted me as their wedding day photographer that I would love to share with you. Visit my website http://www.memories-and-more.com for my brochure and full portfolio. When you are ready to start looking at photographers, please give me a call (916) 743-4393. I look forward to speaking with you. Read less

She did very well getting everyone where they needed to be and tried to make the picture taking as fast as possible so guest did not start to whine. She wasn't in the way of anyone's view to us...hardly anyone noticed where she was besides in between the ceremony and the reception. She got very elegant shots and a lot of them! I would defiantly recommend her.

My whole experience with Memories-and-More was nothing short of AMAZING. The package they offered was the only one of its kind and could not be beat by any competitors. I have recommended Shawn Spencer's services to ALL soon-to-be brides...and she will be my photographer for the future. Shawn was extremely organized and had creative ideas for the engagement photos and for our wedding day...My husband was really impressed how quick and effecient Shawn was. He really appreciated her demeanor during the whole process. Memories-and-More is definitely the photographer for ALL your special occasions.

Shawn was an excellent photographer! She was awesome, I had no worries that day because of her. ANYTHING I needed, she either got it for me or had it taken care of for me. Her title should be photographer\wedding planner. My husband and I loved her! She kept things on track. I would recommend her to anyone!

Ms. Spencer did a fantastic job. Delegated as needed to keep things organized and moving. Prompt and efficient. Not pushy but professional. Would highly recommend her to others.
