Hey friends, I’m Shannon - the girl behind Vine and Light. I’ve been doing this gig professionally for over seven years now, and only grow more excited about my job and the ridiculous honor of documenting promises and celebrating love for a living. One thing I learned about myself early in life is that I was created with a knack to notice beauty, but it wasn’t until later that I learned I could share with others all the beauty I was seeing. Not long after that realization, I began my career as a full time internationally recognized wedding photographer - and it has been such a blast.

Some things to know about me as a human: I love poetry and words, enjoy white spaces and green plants, am not-so-secretly obsessed with small towns & southern charm, wish I could dance but most definitely cannot, always down for farmers market adventures and I'm fully convinced the smell of coffee in the morning is God's daily bread for me. Pretty much, I’m a normal girl who happens to have a camera attached to her face 80% of the time.

I am always eager to work with couples who resonate with my images and who are excited to make something uniquely beautiful together. If that sounds like you, let’s not waste another second. And hey, don't be a stranger! In fact, follow the link below to stay connected via instagram!


The name Vine & Light was inspired by John 15:5: “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” The way I see it, I am only the branches of my work. If I'm being honest, whatever you find here that is good or beautiful or lovely is not to my credit, but to God's. These are His stories, I just got the lucky honor of helping to share them.

So far Vine & Light has been witness to over 150+ wedding days - that's a lot of promises, that's a lot of love stories told, and it's a heck of a lot of gratitude beaming from behind my camera lens as I get to watch it all unfold. I cherish the honor of helping tell the story of love in so many lives. I don't take this lightly, love is a big deal, marriage is a big deal, and family is a big & beautiful deal. And story telling - that's the treasure that helps us years and decades from now when we want to remember what our promises were all about.
