Mother of the BRIDE


"We selected Shannon as our wedding photographer and couldn’t be happier that we did. From the very first interaction with her, and from reviewing her website, we could tell Shannon had excellent photographic skills. But that didn’t really give us an idea of what it would be like to work with her on the day of the event. We found that Shannon was very receptive to any special photos or shots we wanted and, on the big day, we couldn’t have been more thrilled. Truly, she captured everything at the wedding beyond our wildest imagination and was a joy to work with. She is creative and thorough capturing the excitement as well as the romance of the occasion. The biggest challenge was deciding what pictures to include in the album because they were all so good. Do yourself a favor and buy the CD. It will be well worth it. We would highly recommend Shannon for your next event."

"Shannon did our family photos and also our Christmas photos and did an amazing job. She captured my family in every single shot. She is very energetic and her love for photography shows through her work. If you would like great photos and a fun and relaxed atmosphere, Shannon Kaye Photography is the perfect place for you."


"Shannon was the photographer at our wedding and did a fabulous job. She was patient and fun with all of us, our wedding was very casual on the beach so we needed someone that would have a good time with us and she fit the spot to a T. I would highly recommend her, friendly, affordable and wonderful pics, a great combination!"



"Right from the start, Shannon impressed us with the professional manner she approached her photography- an approach that not only inspired confidence in us being in front of the lens, but generated the results we were looking for in our prints. We needed a professional and reputable photographer for our wedding and had little time to shop around. By choosing Shannon Kaye Photography, we were able to get a photographer who was not only professional in her business practices but delivered the quality of images that we were looking for to capture our special day.

Because of her experience not only with weddings but photography in general, Shannon has been able to provide my wife & I with a “moment frozen in time” that we will cherish forever. Shannon was on time and began working immediately, capturing our event flawlessly as it unfolded. She was never stationary during the ceremony or the reception and that enabled her to get the true feeling and emotions of our wedding day. She truly went above and beyond our expectations. We have recommended and will continue to recommend Shannon as a Hampton Roads photography professional. We were more than pleased with the results and will always be able to look back and enjoy that moment through her work."

"Shannon Kaye Photography has to be one of the best photographers in Hampton Road Virginia. Shannon was extremely professional and very punctual. She was also very polite and pleasant. She made us feel very comfortable and she captured exactly what we wanted in our photo shoot. We had plenty of quality photos to choose from. We will definitely utilize her services again and highly recommend her to our friends and family.  We had a wonderful experience."

"I was totally surprised with the gift of taking pictures on the beach with my
sisters and mom.  Being wound up for my wedding in less than 24 hours away, at the time, I could relax and have fun with my family.  Shannon was very professional.  Thanks Shannon for the best deal ever, fun and professionalism."


"A bride couldn't ask for anything more than making great memories on the biggest day of her life! Shannon provided just that!  Every time I look at a photo I'm reminded of every emotion and feeling from that very special day.

Thank you,

 "When it comes to having our pictures taken we are two very uncomfortable people but you made us otherwise that day. You made it a very fun and easy experience for us and the proof is in the pictures. We absolutely love the pictures and our family can’t get enough of them. If your website crashes it might be due to them! Thank you again for a great experience and even better memories."

Thank you!

"Mike and I are not people that usually enjoy getting our picture taken.  We are both pretty laid back and we try not to take ourselves too seriously.  Shannon made us feel so relaxed!  She did a great job of capturing both our personalities and making them shine through.  We were both so pleased with the versatility of the pictures!  Thanks Shannon!!"

the ESPOSITO family


"I have been a friend of Shannon’s for a few years and have always admired her photography but it wasn’t till just recently when she did a photo shoot for my family, did I truly appreciate her talent. Our pictures are gorgeous.

My family had our photographs taken by Shannon out under the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Since we were at the beach, she took her time to make sure she didn’t get other people or objects in the background. She made sure to ask us how we wanted to be grouped and what we wanted to be in the background. Never once did she rush us or become impatient with our family of 9. She was great with the 3 children too. They soaked up every minute of being photographed.

Her editing process was quick and she kept in contact with us throughout the whole experience. I know we will use her again later on down the line and I definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to get any kind of pictures done!

Thanks Shannon!"

"Planning an out-of-state wedding while working and going to college full-time was quickly beginning to wear us down. At first, we were hesitant about hiring a photographer, but after meeting Shannon and seeing her portfolio, we felt so much more comfortable with the idea. Shannon’s charming personality made us, as well as the guests, feel extremely at ease. Our private photo session after the ceremony was so much fun! Hiring Shannon as our photographer was one of the best decisions we have made—as she beautify captured moments from our special day.

Thank you, Shannon!"

Cody and I have been in a long distance relationship for the past couple
of years. Right after we got engaged, we knew that we needed to schedule
an engagement photo shoot during one of my trips out to Virginia. When researching the area, I came across Shannon’s website and completely fell in love with her photography. Shannon was a pleasure to work with and made everything so easy. She worked with the distance when coordinating the shoot and everything came together so smoothly when we finally met. Despite the sudden rain on the day of our shoot, she was able to pull
everything together and find another great location for our pictures. These were the first pictures of our life together as an engaged couple and Shannon made it a wonderful and memorable experience.
                      Thank You Shannon!

Thank you so much for your gift of talent with your photo session with our “son to be” Jeffrey. We are in the process of adopting him and these pictures mean more to us than you know. He’s the love of our life and you captured his true personality and beauty. You made him feel comfortable and you were able to catch those little “moments” that are sometimes rare to find.  We are thoroughly pleased with the end result and spent hours upon hours trying to decide which ones are our favorites.  Once we did decide, your turnaround time was phenomenal!  We will treasure these photos forever and plan to use you to take family photos of all of us once the adoption is final.

Thank you again,

Kim & Steve Andresen


On May 2, 2009, Mike & I said 'I do', in front of our beloved friends and family.  There to capture every moment of our special day was Shannon.  Looking through our albums you would never guess the chaos that was going on behind the scenes, because the pictures were perfect.  She made sure to capture every special memory from our wedding and then some!!  We couldn't have been more thrilled with the outcome, and we definitely recommend Shannon if you want someone you can trust!


"I was very nervous in the minutes leading up to my photography session-- but when I met Shannon, she put me at ease right away.  She is professional, technical and creative-- but friendly and encouraging and all the while.  I was able to relax in an otherwise uncomfortable situation.  I would not have trusted my friends or sisters as I have Shannon with these personal photographs."
