I love my job.
Sure, people say that, but how often do they mean it? I, Shannon DeLong, truly mean it. I've photographed dozens of weddings, and I've smiled 'til my cheeks hurt at every single one.
So why does the love of my job and my experience matter to you? It means I know how to place my clients in good lighting, and guide them to beautiful moments. I also know what to look for, and what moments matter most to you. This is because I believe getting to know my clients is important. My overall goal is for my client's experience to be both enjoyable and comfortable. My couples know from the beginning that they don't have to worry about stiff or awkward posing. Couples generally get married (hopefully) once, so it's my job to walk you through the process - on and off camera.
I also worked as a graphic designer in the corporate realm for 6 years (I hold a Bachelor's degree that is a hybrid of both graphic design and photography). Those years of experience allow me to create beautiful heirloom albums, save the dates, holiday cards, and more for my clients.
Above all, from pre-wedding to post-wedding, I'm a reliable and trustworthy part of your team. Having me on your wedding day means your images are crafted with intention and authenticity.

Although I may be at the forefront of this business, I certainly don't run it alone. My wonderful husband, Tim, photographs every wedding alongside me. He also contributes to retouching and print designs for clients.
With a background in fine arts and graphic design, photography was another creative medium that just came naturally to Tim. His artistic eye, and depth of knowledge make him an excellent photographer and designer.
But, let's talk about being calm under pressure - this guy can keep his cool even in the most stressful of times. You can turn to him when you're feeling overwhelmed knowing he will relieve your worries, and handle any situation unruffled.
With a combined 15+ years experience, we are confident we can provide you with excellent service. We tag team, feed off each other, and run like a well-oiled machine so you can enjoy your day to the fullest. As a team, we ensure every wedding has sufficient coverage, and every client's needs are met to the very best of our abilities.
Like you, I enjoy fashion, marathons of House Hunters, and traveling. I love comedy movies, hate Game of Thrones ended, and I'm a die-hard animal lover. We've lived in Charlotte, North Carolina for a year, and it quickly won us over. We are so happy to call this beautiful city home!
