His wedding and portrait images have appeared in multinational magazines and publications worldwide winning numerous awards.

As a father, husband, and US Navy veteran he genuinely believes in the value of personal connections with clients.  Shawn believes that the best clicks with a camera start with clicking with people in front of it to produce genuine organic expressions.My goal for every client is that by the time their wedding comes, they see me as a friend and honored guest as well as a photographer

Shawn treats every wedding as if it were his own.  Most photographers today assign a novice photographer to cover weddings while the owner covers another.  Shawn insists on covering every event in person and always uses the best award-winning second shooters in Kansas City.
