There would never be enough room in this review to say how much I love Shannon. Her eye for photography is unparalleled and I am so happy she was able to capture and share our day with us. She is so laid back and made us so calm on a day that could easily become nerve-wracking. We love our photos!!

Shannon made our wedding such a fantastic night! We were so grateful for everything that she did for us and cannot believe how lucky we were to have found her!

She did so much for us; she got me water when I needed it and (it felt like) keeping the entire show running! We had an awesome time and are so happy to have the most beautiful photographs to prove it.

Thank you so much for everything, Shannon!

Shannon is amazing! From the minute you meet her, you feel like you've known her forever! She is professional, extremely easy to work, and friendly. I personally don't love having my picture taken, but Shannon has a way of making you feel really comfortable in front of the camera. Besides being a great person, she takes unbelievable photos! Shannon captured every emotion and special moment of my wedding day. I LOVE every single picture she took! I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer. Thank you Shannon! You are the best!

Shannon provided a beautiful arrangement and variety of photos for our wedding. Even before our wedding day Shannon was very available in terms of contacting her about questions and also met with Tyler and I a few times to make sure she was going to be able to forfill all of our preferences for our wedding day.
I would highly recommend Shannon to others for their wedding!

We are blown away by our photos! Shannon truly told the story of our wedding day through her photos, it was like reliving the day all over again! She didn't miss a thing, and caught amazing moments we weren't even aware of. Shannon is incredible to work with, great with communication and detail. The other fantastic thing is how stealth she is while taking photos! Maybe it was just the wedding day blur but she was so smooth about snapping photos and not being distracting. Even our guests and family members commented on this.
The most exciting part was seeing the final images. Shannon captures so many different moods and styles you will have a vast selection to choose from. We wanted a slightly more modern/journalistic approach and Shannon totally delivered, while not neglecting the traditional family shots that we also wanted to get. If you want gorgeous photos that truly tell the story of your wedding Shannon is your girl, she is truly an Artist. We will treasure our photos forever, thank you again Shannon.

If you are in the market for a wedding photographer, let me help you. You can stop your search now. Shannon is your girl. It is an added bonus that she comes with a super infectious bubbly personality (because let's face it, some photographers have the personality of a tadpole), but the proof is in the pudding.

My husband and I were looking for someone to shoot our wedding and Shannon came as a recommendation through a friend. We were chatting with another photographer who happened to be a very good friend of my Aunt's when we met with Shannon. Her personality drew us in, but her work was what sold us. She had quite an impressive portfolio that got us really excited. We booked with her months before our wedding. She was great in getting in touch with us to schedule our engagement session. We had enthusiastically agreed to be her 'subjects' as she tested out a new film camera. We had a great time rolling around on the beach and having fun as we got to know Shannon. She made us feel carefree, youthful and sexy. Those photos were amazing, but what really blew us away were the wedding photos.

Shannon has an impressive artistic eye with a couture flare. I never imagined that my wedding photos would turn out so perfectly. She was able to capture so many tender moments between my husband and I and also with our respective families. But don't let that fool you, she was also right up in our dance party shooting some great action shots. The whole vibe and feel of the wedding reception completely came through in our album. She is magic behind the lens and we have so many precious moments to look back on. To me, the photographs are the most important investment, and Shannon was worth every penny.

I would be happy and honored to provide Shannon with our contact info as a reference.

Shannon -

There are not enough thank you's in the world to express how incredibly happy and excited we are about our photos and also to your dedication to your wor

Love love love Shannon!! She took such unique pictures of our wedding! She truly captured each and every detail I had wished she would notice. She also made me act kinda goofy and the pics she got of me doing it were smashing! She really has a great intuition of what will work during a photography shoot.

Shannon photographed both our engagement photos and our wedding. As a local hair and makeup artist working in the photography industry I have seen and worked with lot of the photography talent in the area but knew Shannon was the perfect choice for the feel we wanted. Her work captures all of what we hoped for and we were thrilled with the outcome! The hardest part for me was knowing I had to be in front of the camera instead of being behind the scenes, which is definitely my comfort zone. I tend to tense up in front of the camera and take akward photos. Shannon made both the wedding day and engagement photo shoot sooo easy and I felt unbelievably comfortable in front of the camera when she was behind it. I NEVER thought I'd say that. I was so comfortable in fact that I am going to do it all again when she shoots my trash the dress session this Spring and I can't wait! Thank you for being so amazing Shannon!

I've said this before, but she's a ninja, While I never saw her, she was able to capture the moments as they happened. From me coming down the aisle, to my husbands reaction back to my reaction to him, working solo. So many photographers make beautiful pictures but are a half second too late in the candid stuff. She captured so many great moments, and made my apartment look artsy during the "getting ready". Seriously though, she was a pleasure to work with and the album was so worth it, we are so pleased!

In one word, Shannon Grant Photography is AMAZING. Her pictures look like they should be Vogue cover shots (and they probably will be someday soon, so grab her while you can!). She has an amazing eye. You won't get any of those corny, hokey, cookie cutter wedding photos that are so boring to look at. You'll be captured in your element, looking your best and your personality will shine though in every pictutre.

Of course, you'll have the requisite photos (family shots, etc), but Shannon's attention to detail and the way she captures the moment is worth every penny you spend. Your photos are forever, after all!

Aside from her creativity, Shannon is as friendly, professional and easy to work with as they come. She knows how difficult it can be to work with brides who are under pressure and stress, and out of all your vendors, she'll be the one that will put you at ease throughout the whole process.

Plus, she's so cool, you'll want to party with her at your reception! We did!

I really loved Shannon's work. We knew we wanted unformal wedding photos. We didn't wanted to capture the day, rather than have fromal wedding photos. Shannon understood what we wanted, and was capable of capturing exactly what we wanted. We were able to provide us a wide range of journalistic images of not only myself, but also with my wedding party and guests. Because of this, I believe we have such an eclectic wide range of images!
The turnaround time of our photos was great! And our album was phenominal! Words can't discribe how amazing our images turned out in the album! We are truly thankful for Shannon Grant and her phenominal style!

Shannon is a fantastic photographer who is also the epitome of professionalism, and my husband and I are grateful that we chose her for our wedding photographer. Allow me to explain WHY Shannon is so fantastic.

We met Shannon at an Art show put on by Kickbored.com in the early part of 2008. We were impressed by her photography and became friends with her, as we are both artists and I also model for fun. From there, I saw her wedding photography online, and what I saw left such an impression on me that I suggested to Jeff that we ask if she would be interested in doing our Halloween wedding-- she obviously had experience with both the traditional and more modern (read: tattooed) bride, and we needed someone who would understand our quirkiness and be willing to work with the scheduling and thematics of our wedding (a somewhat traditional, outdoors ceremony at Tenney Castle in Methuen, MA, followed by a 2 hour break in which the wedding party would disperse, we would get made- up, and the reception would regroup-- in costume--- at the Knights of Columbus in Methuen).

Shannon was in constant contact with us over the course of the year that we decided to hire her to the wedding itself. She put up with the inconvenience of waiting 2 hours in between ceremonies, making for a very long day for everyone. And she was FUN. She took breathtaking pictures, and we all had a blast taking them with her-- and they weren't the run of the mill kid, either. We were down in the leaves, up on castle walls. Every single one of my wedding pictures is an amazing memory that she had a keen eye to capture.

I highly recommend Shannon to everyone I know who is getting married, because she is truly the best wedding photographer I know. You would not be disappointed.

Shannon is a legend. My wife and I are extremely picky about our creative photography and Shannon more than exceeded our expectations. She is a younger photographer but you wouldn't know it by her super-professional attitude, relaxed "been-there" composure combined with an absolutely outstanding eye for a great shot. She was an absolute treat to have at our wedding and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone who is looking to capture a magic moment with a little pizazz and a lot of fun :)
