Hey y'all! I'm shauna,
A nationally published  destination and elopement photographer, based out of the great lakes state.
 I live for the beach, coffee, trips to disney world, and loving on my family. Don't worry, you're part of my family now! Take me to the ocean and you'll be my best friend, too! 

Where do I begin with how amazing Shauna is? I am beyond happy my husband and I chose her to be our wedding photographer. She not only took the most beautiful breathtaking photos, exactly like the kind you see in a fairytale, but she made the day fun and took the stress completely away!! She was also very good at getting laughs out of you to make the pictures look so natural. If you choose Shauna as your photographer be prepared to be taken away with the work she does and have the most beautiful photos to hold onto for a lifetime.

The SHauna McIver experience

If you're looking for a kick ass photographer to give you an epic experience, then look no further because I've got you covered! I don't just show up on your wedding day essentially a stranger. I want to know you. I want to know your story. Do you do a spittake when you laugh {it's an endearing quality guys} or jump in circles when you're excited? Do you show massive displays of affection or do you need a couple glasses of wine to let that out? These things matter to me because they matter to you. They tell me who you are and your wedding photography should do the same. I'm wildly passionate about marriage and I'm so proud when I get to be part of yours! I'm a photographer for the romantics, the whimsical and adventurous couples. The ones who know the value this experience holds and will get a little brave to get the shot. Getting married in the mountains or at the ocean? I'm your girl. Having a laid back midwest wedding? If you're in this for the experience and value that over all else, then I'm still your girl. Let's make some magic together! I can't wait to tell your story. That's what matters here after all!

"STOP SEARCHING! YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER! Shauna was so incredible to work with - friendly from the beginning, organized, delivers photos well before she promises - not to mention takes BEAUTIFUL photos. Wedding photography is not an area to skimp on and my husband and I agree that hiring Shauna was some of the best money we spent for our wedding. Shauna is one of those people that you click with when you meet. She’s just so great! We felt so fortunate to be spending our entire wedding day with Shauna and her assistant that day, Stephanie. 11/10 recommend Shauna to capture your wedding day!"

"Shauna was the absolute best photographer to work with. Throughout the planning process, she was very responsive to my email questions. She helped with the day of timeline. On the wedding day, she arrived timely, and was such a breeze to work with. The whole experience was not stressful or awkward at all. Having been a bridesmaid in a few weddings myself, she was the best photographer I’ve ever worked with. Even my bridal party and family commented that she was just amazing. She made sure we stuck to the timeline, but she wasn’t extremely bossy in doing so. She was super great with the kids too. My wedding was posted on her blog within a week of the wedding and I received the gallery shortly after that, so much quicker than I expected! I highly recommend her services to everyone! Her photos are very crisp and clean, and I love how she works with natural light."

"We chose Shauna as our photographer based on her portfolio. When we met her and had our engagement photos taken we realized we got so much more out of a photographer than just AMAZING photos. Shauna is so talented, but she is also fun to be around and makes you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. I would recommend her to anyone, and know that I will never use another photographer again!"

Taylor + riley

"Shauna... my ultimate favorite person: from the moment she responded to my Facebook message beyond my wedding day to this very moment Shauna has been the most supportive and encouraging person. I gave her crazy ideas and wishes- she made them happen. I still remember our first consultation where she described what she likes to capture on the wedding day. I thought to myself “I will never want those”, but I trusted her and am so thankful that I did. We get to relive every little detail of our wedding day. My husband and I loved our engagement and wedding pictures so much we booked a family session less than a year later!!! We love Shauna 💖 and her magic behind the lens 📸"

Edwin + Emily

"I can’t thank Shauna enough for our stunning Engagement photos! She was such a dream to work with. Not only are our photos gorgeous, they captured so much love in a single shot. My fiancé and I were at ease while Shauna professionally positioned us and directed us into the most natural loving poses. Our photos are like nothing else I’ve seen! Working with Shauna was such a great experience; she traveled all the way to Charleston, SC and took the dreamiest, enchanting, whimsical collection of photos I’ve ever seen. I simply cannot imagine how our wedding photos will look based on how perfect our engagement session turned out. This has been one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding and I look forward to working with her in all our major life events!"
