I’m Shannon Stent, a professional wedding photographer living in Cowaramup, a small town in the heart of the Margaret River region of Western Australia.
My passion for photography and film-making started in the ocean — I have always been fascinated with the sea, and it was my inspiration to first pick up a camera and start taking pictures and making movies. Over ten years later, I still get the same buzz and satisfaction in
capturing Mother Nature in all her glory — one fraction of a second at a time.
When my two daughters came into this world, I naturally began to develop an interest in photographing people. I tend to take a natural, organic approach to my photography, with a heavy focus on the mood and feeling of the moment. Our photography style is often described as moody and atmospheric. I’m not a huge fan of tradition or following trends, I like to break the rules and I’m always up for the unknown and trying something new and adventurous.
More recently, my wife Jayde has developed her own passion for documenting weddings, and we now work full time as a husband and wife team. We love the challenge of incorporating the natural environment into our wedding photography, and the South-West has unlimited locations and opportunities. From the sun-drenched countryside to the beautiful coast near Margaret River, embracing the natural beauty of this wonderful state helps set the mood and provides a wonderful backdrop.
