Wes Shinn Photography & Film




Serving a decade, as a military photojournalist, provided me with the unique experience of capturing major national disasters. In doing so, I developed an eye for capturing details and stories in an impactful way.


Today I bring that same skill to your wedding day. Capturing every single detail of your day - from your earrings and shoes to the special people and emotional moments - and all with unique lighting, angles, and points of view.


Learning your personalities, your stories, and dynamic together allows me to make sure you feel comfortable and photograph your day in a more personal way. I do this not only because you deserve to receive quality service, but to make sure you truly enjoy your day, take it all in, and have epic photographs to remember it by.


The unique and cinematic style you see in my portfolio comes from attending film school and learning the technical expertise to capture beautiful colors, unexpected effects, and the true art of storytelling.
