“Shauna and Jordon Photography were an absolute blessing to have throughout the wedding experience. A few of my mutual friends had tagged Shauna via Instagram, so that is where I first caught sight of their work. Then I noticed they did a Harborside Chapel photo shoot and that’s when I knew they were right for us,” Emma gushed. “Their service is unbelievable, over the top, and more than just a photographer. I would text Shauna any concerns (regarding anything with the wedding) for the 18 months of engagement leading up to the big day. They were calm when we were stressed; they reminded us of the importance of taking time to ourselves on the busy day, and they helped manage anything we needed during the day. Shauna even helped me into my dress as everyone else was too nervous to ruin it. I would pick Shauna and Jordon Photography again and again for anything we need in the future.”

Not to mention she came with outstanding reviews of how fun and easy she is to work with throughout the entire process.
