Understanding that the heart of your celebration lies within and beneath the surface, Shannon Yen aims to capture the essence of how your wedding felt with adept artistry, in a documentary and editorial style. She sees and values the experiences of others as much as her own, and channels the utmost care into her work, photographing moments in an unobtrusive manner. Shannon Yen splits her time between California and New York and also travels to capture weddings.

What motivates you to do what you do? 

For the pure love of it. I’ve had a camera in my hand since as long as I can remember, and have always been a hopeless romantic with an eye for noticing the beauty that exists all around. To be able to share that perspective through artful documentation of real life stories and love stories is something that fills me with so much joy and gratitude everyday. 

Do you travel for weddings? 


How would you describe your style? 

Romantic, cinematic, nostalgic, artful, fashion forward - a blend between the best of candid, in-the-moment documentary imagery with refined editorial artistry. 

What inspires you? 

Light, nature, fashion, architecture, creative expression, human connection. Lately, being a new mom has inspired me and my work in an entirely new way. It has shown me that no moment is too small, and that often times the most significant moments happen in the most unexpected and unplanned ways, every day. This outlook has transformed the way I connect with, observe and document the world around me. 

Do you shoot digitally, on film, or both? 


Who is your dream client? 

In love couples who are excited to work together to create something meaningful, and who choose to craft an experience rooted in intentionality, presence, and elevated design. 

Where are you based? 

I'm currently based in Hoboken, NJ and I split my time between California and New York.  

How would you describe your working style? 

With an unobtrusive approach and caring warmth, I find the balance between offering gentle guidance and creative direction, and being an observer who steps back and allows moments to unfold organically. 

Understanding that the heart of every celebration lies within and beneath the surface, where stolen glances, heartfelt conversations, and loving embraces are integral instances of experience that truly make the story whole - I aim to capture the essence of how it all felt with adept artistry. 

Do you have custom packages according to individual needs? 

Yes! I have a starting base package and from there, wedding collections are customized to bring the highest quality of care and personalization. 

What is a favourite product or service that you offer and why?

A second photographer and film photography. The combination of the two allow for stories to be told in a deeper way through multiple perspectives and mediums.
