Shay Northern

Owner/Principal Photographer

I started my business in 2010 and I have been fortunate to meet so many amazing couple’s who trust my skills to capture their story on one of the most important days of their lives! Being a wedding photographer is truly the most fulfilling career I can think of! From the very beginning, when I meet a couple for the first time, and continue through the planning process up until the wedding day, I am there start to finish. I love helping with the planning process as much as I can! Many couples ask for referrals and questions in other areas of the wedding planning process and it truly is so humbling that they trust my judgement!

I have valuable knowledge and have been coined a 'fixer' on wedding days because I can honestly fix anything under pressure! I have seen, heard and fixed it all! I want every single couple who graces my lens to be absolutely blown away by the experience I provide. It's like having your own personal friend, therapist, and wedding planner all in one! One of my biggest claims to fame are my detail shots. I am very detail oriented and will take the extra time to fix your hair, his bowtie, fluff your flowers, all to ensure perfect shots from the start! The experience I provide my couples with leaves them with memories that last a lifetime!

    We LOVED working with Shay. From the moment I arrived for my bridal shots, she made me feel totally at ease. She was funny, easy going, and yet totally focused, and she knew just what to say to get me to relax. It was the same with our first look shots--my husband and I were so nervous, but Shay had us laughing right away. She took absolutely beautiful shots of us all evening. And the photos she took all throughout the ceremony and reception are fun, vibrant, flattering, and totally capture the happy, magical day we had. We really couldn't have asked for a better photographer. She was SO prompt, too, in getting our finalized images to us! And she's a kind, quick communicator. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat!

    Shayla is amazing. She was very professional and the photos of our engagement and wedding were incredible. She traveled to Taos NM for our wedding, she arrived on time and delivered everything promised in our contract. Aside from being a kind and easy person to work with - Shayla’s photos are incredible. My wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous - they were best investment we made on our wedding day. She really captured the love, tenderness, and candid joy of our day. I recommend her to all of my bridal friends and will use her services again in the future.

    Shayla was the best photographer ever. We used her for our engagement, wedding and even a boudoir session after. She’s straight forward, easy to communicate with and you can definitely tell she loves her job. Highly recommended!!
