Shannon is a true pro at his craft. He has a clear vision and passion for his art that obviously speaks for itself with his impressive photography. Moreover, Shannon is warm, friendly and will always take the time to listen and discuss your specific visions for a project as well as offer valuable insights and guidance. Shannon is willing to go above and beyond for you and your career far beyond the day of your photoshoot. I highly endorse Shannon as the person and the professional. More...

Shannon is a true professional. Kind, talented, punctual, artistic and very responsive. He was able to capture such beautiful natural photographs of my children. I would highly recommend him anyone looking to invest in having photographs professionally taken for any reason. He is very well worth it!! I am grateful we found him! More...

I have done multiple photoshoots with Shannon, whether it has been to update my modeling portfolio or professional quality pictures for instagram he has been easy to work with and timely in getting my edited pictures back. He has always made me feel comfortable during shoots and makes sure we have fun. I highly suggest booking with Shannon whether you are an experienced model or if its your first time in front of the camera! More...

We have had 2 sessions with Shannon to shoot headshots for my teenage daughter. The whole process was smooth and professional from beginning to end. He provided an awesome hair and makeup person, picked great locations that worked for each outfit and got a variety of shots for each based on the “look” she was wearing. He was very encouraging to her, and as a teenager, that was important. We needed a current photo very quickly (next day) and while he processed all of the images for us to pick selects, he was able to send me one photo for our use the next day, and it was much appreciated. Overall, we were very satisfied every step of the way. Shannon is a true professional and we highly recommend him! More...

Oh, Shannon. Where do I even begin with him? First and foremost, he is top tier. His beautiful work speaks volumes for itself, but having shot with him a few times I can tell you this - Fear nothing with Shannon! You will have a blast, you will be comfortable while shooting, and you will be a happy camper when he returns quality images from your session! Can't say enough nice things about this man and his work - LOVE! More...

Shannon was the very first photographer, with whom I ever had the pleasure to work. Since then I have collaborated with dozens of professionals, and I can honestly say Shannon ranks among the elite. I have been fortunate enough to work with Shannon several times on numerous projects, and never have I been anything less than thrilled. Not only does he have a great eye for detail and composition, but he is a consummate professional and provides clear and helpful direction. His portfolio is also remarkably diverse, demonstrative of his incredible range as a photographer. I highly recommend him for any photography needs. More...

Shannon will give her kidney for you. She is the most dedicated wedding photographer I've ever seen...brings all the extras: various cameras, lights on stands, bags full of gear...you can't ask for more.

Shannon was wonderful to work with! He came in on a Sunday just 2 days after I reched out because I was on a time crunch! The session was very comfortable and fun! I brought two girlfriends along for the day. The process of getting the photos was super easy and fast! I had worked with him once before on a calendar shoot for the Cincinnati Ben-Gals and was confident that he would do an amazing, professional job. Fabulous experience. More...

I had the BEST time shooting with Shannon and his wife from Studio Ravish. They made me feel great, shake the jitters, and they helped me have an awesome time throughout the process. Just as important- the pictures were amazing! After a ton of research into different options, I couldn't be any happier with my choice to go with Studio Ravish. Best value and experience ever!!

We were very pleased with Shannon Williams Photography. They were a great value for our money and they really worked with us to create the photography package we wanted. We wanted to 'register' for several special photography items (Canvas Print, upgraded album) and Shannon did a wonderful job of creating this option for our guests. During the wedding day, they were never intrusive but still caught all the great moments of the day. Additionally, I had a vision for my wedding album and Shannon was very patient working with me for an extended period of time to create my vision. Now, everyone raves about our stunning photography and fabulous wedding album. More...

I would highly recommend Shannon Williams Photography to any future bride and groom. Out of all the vendors we had for our wedding, they were the BEST! They were not only photographers, but wedding coordinators, as well. Shannon and Amy were easy to work with and made my entire bridal party feel extremely comfortable. The pictures they took were trendy, but classic, and I am always receiving compliments on my photo album. Shannon and Amy were true professionals and played a huge role in making my wedding one of the best day's of my life. More...

I was very happy with the service from Shannon Williams and would definately book him again. We had a few meeting prior to our wedding date and he knew exactly what kind of pictures we were expecting and he delivered. We were both impressed with the pictures we recieved. We decided to request his service for 8 hrs the prep-wedding-and reception. My husband and I were very comfortable in front of the camera which was nice to have that ease with your photographer on your special day. More...

We chose Shannon Williams Photography for our wedding in May 2009 and could not have been happier with the results. Shannon and his wife were wonderful to work with on our wedding day. They were extremely friendly and made everyone feel very relaxed. The quality of the photos they took were above and beyond our expectations. I would gladly recommend them to anyone that asks. My husband and I just recently had our first child and we plan to contact Shannon to have some pictures taken of our little one. More...

Shannon and Amy provided great service and captured our wedding day perfectly. They were extremely friendly and open to our requests/suggestions, but also made some suggestions along the way that made for more artistic and creative photographs that I never would have thought of. I would highly recommend them for any occasion! More...

Shannon and his wife Amy are amazing. I would highly recommend meeting them and considering them for your engagement and wedding photographers. I'm sure they're awesome at other photography shoots as well, but all I've had personal experience with were engagement and wedding photos. I cannot praise them enough. They are both excellent photographers and incredible people. They are a blessing to know and to have had them photograph very exciting things in our lives! More...

Shannon delivered everything that was promised when it came to my wedding day. He was great with communication prior to the date, and he came prepared knowing my entire wedding party and families names. He was great at directing and making sure the pictures were taken quickly and smoothly. The outcome of our pictures exceeded our expectations with beautiful quality and artistic direction. More...

Shannon Williams Photography totally took care of our on our wedding day. They made everything easy and fun and comfortable. We were looking for someone who could creatively think outside the box a little bit and go beyond your run-of-the-mill traditional wedding photos.... Our photographs are absolutely stunning - highly recommended. More...

Q&A

First and foremost, it's always about the lighting. The quality of light makes all the difference in the world and has everything to do with shaping the impact your image has, and making sure it communicates rightly with its intended audience.

It's important to know how and where your images will be used. Images intended primarily for a social media campaign, for instance, are far different - potentially - for images intended for large-format display (a billboard, instance).

I've always been fascinated with faces - even as a young boy obsessed with pencil-sketches, I would gravitate toward trying to draw faces and capture expressions. The same interest carries over into my photography, even now these many years later.

Not all that long ago, I didn’t know how to use a camera. In fact, I didn’t know where mine was half the time. Most everyone had transitioned to digital cameras by then, but given that I barely used my film camera, I didn’t see the point. Family vacations would come and go, and I would buy the wrong film or even just forget to carry the camera along when we were out. Crisis came our way though, and our family-story began to take a different direction. Suddenly, having pictures of my kids – then 8, 5, and 2 – meant everything to me. I borrowed a camera from a friend one weekend so I could snap some images of my boys, and that’s when it started. I fell in love with photography and thought to myself, “Maybe I could make a go of this…” So, I took the leap and bought a used, entry-level camera online and spent every spare minute teaching myself to shoot. Four months in, I had my first paying client. And these many years later, I’m still as excited about shooting as I was then.

I pay attention to detail, I prioritize clear communication and understanding, I'm grateful for the opportunity to work with new people, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to executing a given project, and making sure the final images accomplish what they're intended for is of the utmost importance to me.
