Courtney + Grady

"I knew Shea was a good photographer from looking at her work before I ever even asked her to shoot our wedding. What I didn’t know was that we were getting more than just someone to take pictures on the biggest day of our lives. From start to finish she was an organizer, hype girl and friend. She was the sweetest soul to work with and she went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect, pictures and all. Her work is amazing and unique. I can’t even begin to count the number of people who have said to me, “your photographer was amazing,” and I could not agree more. I can’t recommend Shea enough. She is truly the best."

reagan + TYLER

" Shea is one of the kindest people you’ll ever meet! I had never had pictures done before and was worried they would be awkward or forced, this was not the case. Shea treats you like an old friend and makes you feel super comfortable behind the camera! From engagement photos to the wedding day Shea made everything a breeze. She even had a full schedule planned for my wedding day which made the day go so much better with no stress! I would recommend her to anyone having pictures done. She’s the absolute best! "

Meg + TJ

"We could not recommend Shea enough!! She made our wedding day and the memories surrounding our photos so sweet. She was incredibly friendly and easy to work with (for ourselves and our families). She was organized and helped coordinate the photos in such an easy way. AND she was quick! We got our sneak peak the night of our wedding!! Not to mention, her work is incredible. I want to mount every single photo on the wall. We love her and would choose her every single time! "

Misti + Emery

"Emery and I were browsing through different wedding photographer instagrams as we were planning the wedding and we just loved your style. Everything featured on your insta and website was a similar theme in how we envisioned our wedding photos. We also wanted to support someone local. We were so so pleased with everything from your service. From a written contract, reaching out to ask all the questions ahead of time, and just the wedding day in general. Everything was professional and SO SMOOTH. We had a wedding coordinator who has worked with plenty of photographers in the Nashville area and she could not say enough things about how smooth the process was with you and how sweet and professional you and your second shooter were. Because of how prepared and efficient you were, we have so many pictures!! You made emery and I feel so beautiful all day long, and now we have these beautiful pictures to display in our home and remember how special the day was for forever. Also, the turn around time was unreal. I was definitely expecting to wait much longer to receive all of our pictures! It was just all around a great experience!"


"I cannot say enough great things about booking HLP for your wedding. From the engagement shoot, to the wedding timeline, to the big day - Shea was a literal dream to work with. She kept things in mind that I had mentioned were important to me on my wedding day, like specific poses and people, when I didn’t even remember myself with all the wedding excitement happening. I would book Shea ten times over and plan to use her for any life events going forward. My pictures were truly a dream come true and I’ll cherish them for forever. She is amazing at what she does."

Jayna + Brian

"We chose Shea as our photographer from previous reviews I had saw on Facebook. Everyone was always so pleased with her work and we wanted to try her out and see what we thought of her work! After one session with Shea, we were hooked! I am so thankful we booked her for our wedding. Each session from the engagement sessions to the bridal shoot to the wedding day was perfect and we couldn’t pick a favorite... we loved them all! Shea was willing to work with both mine and my husband’s personalities without making us feel uncomfortable! She truly enjoys what she does and puts her whole heart and soul into what she does. We are forever thankful for Shea and her talents! Because of her phenomenal work, we have so many photos that captured our big day perfectly that we will remember for the rest of our lives!"

Brittney + Derek

"We picked Shea as our wedding photographer after our engagement session because she is so personable and her style is exactly what we love! Shea is more than someone who just takes a picture and goes home. When you book her as your wedding photographer, you gain a friend. Someone to help calm those wedding day jitters, and someone that always goes the extra mile. She’s on top of your wedding day timeline. She will do anything to make sure your day is as easy as possible. As for photos, she takes your vision you have and makes it better than you imaged. She makes you both feel like a million bucks. HIRE. HER. NOW!"

scarlett + danny

"I found Shea off of an old friends profile where she did her and her husband’s wedding. As soon as I saw the first picture she posted, I immediately knew I wanted Shea as our wedding photographer. She was the PERFECT fit for our wedding day! She paid the most attention to detail and she made sure everything was perfect. Even bringing us an umbrella because rain was in the forecast. She was so positive and uplifting throughout the entire process! We could not have gotten more perfect photos from anyone else and we’re so thankful we chose Shea for our perfect day!!"

connor + brian

"My now-husband was very much a part of the wedding planning process, and the photography was one of his biggest worries. I like dark and moody tones, and he likes light and airy. After scouring wedding groups on Facebook for a few weeks, we finally found this amazing local professional! Shea is so affordable! She was able to lean more light and airy for him, while including some moody ones for me. She was down for any ideas we had and so adventurous. She truly values how important your wedding day is. Shea is very detailed and prompt. She helped me with my wedding timeline and the shot list for my crazy family dynamic. She kept the mood happy and upbeat and fit right in with the bridal party. The next day we had sneak peeks and funny BTS videos! Thank you Shea for being an amazing asset for our best day, and for providing us with memories that will last forever! Highly recommend!"

"Shea is part of what made our wedding day so perfect. Not only did she capture it perfectly, but she helped make sure that every aspect of the day was perfect and that everyone was taken care of and happy. She made sure we got every shot possible then some, and didn’t complain one bit even on what seemed like the hottest day in May!! From our engagement pictures to our wedding day, Shea went above our expectations and we couldn’t be happier with her work."

morgan + cole

"When searching for a wedding photographer, I came across Shea’s page and instantly fell in love with her style. After reading some reviews and talking to previous clients, I knew I had to have her photograph our wedding! She went above and beyond at our engagement shoot and on wedding day to capture every shot and then some, but also make us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She even took time out of her busy schedule to send almost weekly texts leading up to the wedding to ask if we needed anything! What other photographer does that?? Shea is talented, kind, and so fun to work with. She goes above and beyond expectations of a typical wedding photographer. From putting on my shoes to corralling all the guests down to the ceremony space, and sticking it out with a smile through the random downpour during our outdoor ceremony. We had a wonderful experience and absolutely love every single one of our photos!!!"

bre + rylan

"SHEA! You were so AMAZING and our pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined! There was the perfect amount of candid photos and well as posed, but there was not a single one I didn’t love! You made everything so comfortable and easy! You captured such a special moment in our life, and you did it flawlessly! I would not change a single thing. Thank you SO very much!!!"

Katie + drew

"I had been looking for weeks on Instagram for a photographer to do my wedding and no one stuck out because I wanted every picture to be perfect. I ran across Shea’s Instagram and instantly fell in love with every picture on her page! She had the perfect editing that I had been looking in a photographer! Not only did she do wonders on our engagement and elopement but she seriously was went above and beyond for me! When we first met her I felt like I’d knew her my whole life she was so friendly and never once made things uncomfortable for us. When our wedding got canceled because covid she did everything to make sure she could capture our elopement with such short notice (literally like less than a week) I 100% recommend her! you won’t regret it!
