About

I am a lifelong artist, a creative soul with a wild spirit and a passion for capturing beauty within the finer moments of life.  I am a curious adventurer, always exploring with a camera in hand.  I have dedicated myself to art and my desire is to create, share, inspire, and help others capture their most precious times.  This, these photos, are who I am.  I can not begin to imagine life without  this beautiful journey. It is my heart and soul.

 

It is difficult to pin what exactly inspires my work.  Inspiration is everywhere, you have to choose to see and not just to look.  Photography has changed my perspective on life…the way I see ordinary objects, people, nature…everything and everyone is potentially a beautiful picture.  Fashion is initially what led me here, but along the way my desire to capture and share more has grown.  I’m greatly inspired by design, color, clothing, and models. I love being close to the ocean, I love celebrations, and I also find much inspiration in nature, people, dreams, love, travel, and raw emotions.

 

I take a carefree and playful approach to photography, allowing my subjects to be who they are so I can capture their true spirits.  The candid moments are the ones that complete us…those sweet, special times that will never come again.  I am here simply as a storyteller.  Whether it is of a designer portraying theirs through beautifully crafted garments or a joyous couple on their wedding day, or a family who is expecting a new member…we all have a story to tell.  Mine is capturing those of others. Being a part of peoples lives in this way inspires me more than I ever imagined.

I hope you will stay awhile and look around.  I hope you find something that inspires you.  If you would like to collaborate, hire me, or simply say hello please fill out the form on the contact page or e-mail me direct at shannonkcouch@gmail.com.  I would love to help bring your visions to life and make lasting memories of your special days.
