I have always enjoyed documenting people and places surrounding me (as evidenced by my first camera at three-years-old!) I love being able to take a moment and capture it in your own unique way.

I graduated from the college of charleston in 2005, majoring in communication and minoring in studio art and spanish. Not exactly sure of the path I wanted to take, I finally decided upon graduation that I wanted to delve deeper into photography.

The next step of the adventure took us (my now husband and I!) to new york, new york where i worked as the photo coordinator at The Knot. After editing and culling through thousands of wedding images at The Knot, I developed a strong eye for wedding and portrait photography and decided I wanted to be taking the images! But after living in New York for two years, we decided we wanted more space and a yard, so we moved back to Charleston, South Carolina, where shannon michele photography was started.

I currently live in Charleston, South Carolina with my husband, Jake, our little one, Owen, and our beloved lab mix pup, Ada. We enjoy continually renovating our 1970′s home, gardening (or trying!), crafting, camping, seeing live music, cooking (mainly Jake—I’m the baker!), and traveling. I am also enjoying all the adventures that come with being a new Mom to Owen!
