We were excited to receive word that our engagement session of MacKenzie Stockwell and Ryan Dennis is featured on Society Bride!  Check out the link here. Thank you Society Bride and congratulations to MacKenzie and Ryan!

Thank you Society Bride for featuring Shannon Ho Photography on your site!  Here are our photos from the shoot and you can also see it here on Society Bride.  Rebecca made a beautiful bride and the setting on the lake was perfect.  Thank you Rebecca, my friend and fellow photographer, for choosing me to shoot your special day with your special someone.

I realized I never got around to posting these images.  Here’s the beautiful Karlee Wright….isn’t she lovely?  And, wow, what an amazing singing voice she has!

I don’t shoot editorial much… wish I could do more b/c this one was so much fun!

This is the week to celebrate “bouquets of newly- sharpened pencils” (as Meg Ryan so perfectly puts it in “You’ve Got Mail”)… Take joy in the little details that the new school year brings!

It was a high honor of mine to be chosen for Jacqueline Tobin’s book, Wedding Photography Unveiled.  To celebrate the publishing of this book, we had dinner at The Park in New York City to thank Jacqueline for her hard work.  I have chosen some images from dinner that show the beautiful setting, the good time had by all and a small glimpse of the book.  Enjoy!

A lot is going on around here today….our studio has been featured on Society Bride blog today as well as a trip to NY and the Hamptons is planned!  Hope you will check out Society Bride and comment on the beautiful bride Stephanie!

We are headed out to the big apple for an In Your City-East Hampton in late July and want to take YOUR pictures, whether in the city or in the lovely Hamptons.  Please contact Amy@shannonho.com and we will get you the perfect date and time for your session.

It’s been a great Monday so far!
