Oh Hello There!
HELLO THERE! I AM SHYANN (LAUREL IS MY MIDDLE NAME.)
I LOVE BOTH THE LIGHT AND AIRY AND DEEP AND CONTRASTY STYLES, I PERFECTLY COMBINE THE STYLES TO CREATE A ONE OF A KIND STYLE OF MY OWN.
ANIMALS ARE MY WEAKNESS, I LOVE THEM, I LOVE INCLUDING THEM IN SESSIONS, THE MORE UNUSUAL THE BETTER!
ADVENTURE IS MY MUSE, MY FAVORITE SESSIONS ARE ONES WHERE WE DO SOMETHING ADVENTUROUS LIKE SHOOTING SOMEWHERE NEW OR HIKING UP A MOUNTAIN, RUNNING THOUGH FIELDS, JUMPING IN RIVERS AND OCEANS AND FINDING UNIQUE LOCATIONS.
is my passion
Your wedding photographer should be a no brainer! I want you saying OMG YES, I want HER when you look at my photos! In fact, I want you to be just about ready to book when you contact me because there is such a connection to what you've read and love my style of photography and can't wait to work together. Because I promise you I will be so excited to work with you too! Loving my style and trusting me to provide you some amazing images is the first step!
I will be with you most, if not all of your wedding day and will be in touch so many times before with sessions and helping you navigate all the stressful things that will pop up while planning! I will help with your timeline and give you suggestions for your session outfits, and even tell you the best lighting for your ceremony and wedding portraits.
I have been shooting weddings for almost 10 years! (I know, yikes, I'm getting old lol) but the upside is I have seen it all and can work in any scenario and problem solve anything that could come up on your day! Yup, I can shoot in low light, rain, and can make even the side of the road look like a gorgeous location. Wedding photography isn't just about taking beautiful photos (but that's pretty damn important too) its about knowing how to handle anything thrown at you and still deliver amazing work.
Your wedding is the best day of your life, but let's be real, they are STRESSFUL, and my goal is to be the least of your worries. I'll help you through your day and give you some kick-ass photographs to remember even the stuff you didn't get to see!

Shyann is absolutely fantastic to work with! She is incredibly personal and has the incredible gift of taking the most beautiful photos. I found Shyann’s website and was stunned at every breathtaking photo in her portfolio. From beginning to end over the course of a year of planning, our communication efforts went smoothly, she provided all the details needed and answered all my questions. She also worked with me in customizing our photo package.
Shyann and her assistant Lauren went above and beyond and we are beyond the day of our wedding. They were such a joy to have around despite my nervous energy and uncomfortable weather. Their positive vibes paired with their energetic direction played a big part in the way our photos turned out. We aren’t exactly the most photogenic people but they brought out the best in us for our wedding – 110%.
For that, I am super super thankful, I wouldn’t have it any other way except I wish I included the engagement session! We are thrilled and beyond happy with the outcome of our wedding photos. She’s a hidden photographer gem in the Austin/San Antonio/New Braunfels area! Don’t waste time and book her now!!
