About me

Read More

Hello I am Ashanta, call me Shan. I am a mother and a Gigi. I laugh loud and cry softly. I love outdoors...walking, hiking, mountains and beaches. I choose couples, elopements and weddings because they allow me to laugh and they allow me to cry and quite frankly, they allow me to eat cake! Let's chat...

My truths, I am a believer. I believe in love, I believe in happily ever after and I believe in God. My faith is strong, because it has been tested. I trust God, and understand that my beliefs may not be yours and that is okay. 

Every loss is a lesson. The loss of my oldest son in September of 2017 is devastating, but I know there is a lesson, I am open and willing to learn the lesson, even though I can't see it right now. Tomorrow is not promised, so I will focus on living today.

I strictly capture couples, and weddings, this allows me to focus solely on capturing love.  Preserving memories to produce images that could easily grace the pages of a magazine is my goal. I appreciate the effort put into the most important day of your life and that's the story I strive to tell. When you look back at your wedding album and prints, they should reflect the very details you managed to achieve so flawlessly.

I've been accused of being country to the core, 
 I can't argue that fact. I love sunsets on a farm.
