Shannon  Iris

Photography is my second career. Sliding into it was like putting on my favorite pair of 501′s from the 80′s: familiar, comfortable and sexy. I was made for it. At the core of my work is an interest in human chemistry where desire burns, passions churn and humor knocks out inhibitions. Everyone looks better beyond inhibitions. Almost without exception my clients gift me with pure essence of character. My gift is to reflect and magnify that essence, capture and document it.

I have a BA in Humanitarian Ecology (a study of relationships that sustain human welfare) from a liberal arts college in Southwestern Colorado and 14 years in the beauty industry. All of that melds perfectly into wedding photography where I study and document the unique beauty of each relationship.

The inspiration and driving force are my children Addy Belle and Jack Henry. They are such cool and interesting people and drive me toward excellence.

What you need to know about what I do.....
I hunger for moments when the human spirit blooms and the heart gallops about wild and free. As a documentary style wedding photographer, I position myself for that split second when the character is revealed ~ the shutter snaps and a treasure is born. Whether inhibitions are peeled away in passion, fall away in silence, or fly away on the wings of love, it is my work to get behind the scenes and deliver wedding photographs that tell an insiders story. In fact the greatest honor is being allowed into the place where real life happens ~ to record a love story for all time.
