my life in 7 photos


I am so glad that you're here! My name is Shay and I am a mama, teacher and photographer.

I believe...
I believe in love. I believe in being present for your life. I believe in romance and love that lasts a lifetime. I believe you can never own too many lipsticks. I believe that Starbucks should offer Toasted Graham Lattes all year. I believe my daughter is amazing. I believe in Tuesday night date nights with my dad. I believe there isn't much that prayer, a good workout or a cheeseburger can't fix. I believe that dresses and skirts with pockets are the best ever. I believe in being friends with my brides. I believe all dogs go to Heaven. I believe in having Thanksgiving dinner more than once a year. I believe in jumping up and down when I love an image I see on the back of my camera.
I believe that every couple has a love story.
...I can't believe I am lucky enough to tell them.

I believe in your love story.
My mission is to create organic, joyful, romantic images, but photography means more to me than pretty pictures. It is capturing love. It is the physical documentation of a love story through images. Years from now you will not have the venue. You will not have the flowers. You might not have the dress. But you'll have the pictures. And when you look back at them, I hope they remind you of exactly how you felt that day. I hope they tell your love story.
