Hello! I’m Valerie Shannon!
I’m Valerie, Kansas + destination wedding and lifestyle photographer. I’m so glad you are here, getting to know me!
I really believe photography is the best job in the world! I get to meet lovely people like you, and create beautiful images that you will cherish for years to come. When I am not at a session, building my business or editing, I’m hanging with my handsome husband: playing card and board games, eating Chipotle, traveling all over Kansas and the world, and playing with our two adorable fur babies (Holly the Maltipoo, and Simba the Cavapoochon). Mickey (my husband) and I are beyond blessed to have found each other in this crazy world and our love story pushes me to continue to find and document other’s love.
I have always been a creative, whether that was with a glue stick + construction paper or watercolors and a paintbrush. Photography has always been an interest, hobby and passion of mine, so I turned it into a career, and I’ve never looked back.
I am passionate about true love, building a Christ centered marriage, empowering women, living a healthy lifestyle, fighting human trafficking, saving dogs, and spreading the name of Jesus. It would be a true honor to photograph you. Please reach out, I can’t wait to chat!
