welcome to shawn kenessey photography

specializing in weddings, portraits, and fashion

a little about my style


When working as a portrait photographer I strive for fun and friendly photo sessions for everyone! I am happy to work with all kinds of clients, whether a model, a couple, or a family. No matter who you are or where you come from I approach every session with the same diligence and respect. My goal is for you to be happy with the whole process including your final photos.


Couples come to me looking for wedding photography because I know how special the day is for you and what it means to have great memories. I apply the same attitude of respect and being fully engaged in the moment to all my photography clients but weddings require a little extra energy, . And while it’s always my goal to get great pictures I try not to let that get in the way of the days events. You can rest assured that with me as your wedding photographer respect and professionalism come first and foremost. 


I’m so happy you visited my site and took a moment to look around, I hope I’ve convinced you that I would be a great choice for your photography needs. I know it can be a complex decision so if I haven’t answered your questions please feel free to ask me personally by using the contact button below.
