I’m wholly convinced that we are all wonderfully weird on the inside, but only the brave truly embrace it!
I love all kinds of love and all kinds of celebrations of love, be they big or small, near or far.
(An opportunity to travel? Count me in!)
At your wedding, I believe you should spend less time posing and more time celebrating. You should focus on being present, while I focus on creating beautiful, honest images that will pull you right back into the feelings of your wedding day.
My favorite weddings are the ones where your guests can’t help but say, “This is so them!”
I take my responsibility as the keeper of your memories very seriously and I love hearing all about your wild and wonderfully authentic wedding plans.
I grew up in Southern California, just a few miles from beautiful beaches, Disneyland, and the sweet-smelling orange groves.
I went to a performing arts high school (so I know a LOT about Broadway musicals).
I moved to Boston for college. I met my husband while singing in our college a cappella group. We got married, bought a house, and adopted an adorable, but neurotic kitty.
My perfect day always includes an açai bowl, a hike in the Fells, and planning my next big travel adventure.
"Shaina’s photographs capture the people, place, and most impressively the feeling of your event.
She is a kind soul that puts you at ease allowing her to capture the most authentic and flattering photographs of you. I was also very impressed by how many images she was able to capture without my realizing she was present.
Hiring Shaina as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made!"

I used to be a Speech Pathologist.
I treated adults with neurological challenges.
I studied the brain so I could help people relearn to focus and remember.
That’s why I know that pictures are worth much more than the sum of their Facebook "likes."
Pictures are an incredible memory cue.
A powerful image can release hidden memories we thought we had lost.
I believe in the power of images.
I would be honored to help shape and preserve your memories.
