What strikes your fancy?


I was never a girl who dreamed about her wedding, but I ended up loving the whole crazy whirlwind process. To this day, I LOVE to talk about weddings (much to the dismay of my inner feminist).


My wedding was the best day ever.

Yours should be too.


My mission is to capture your day beautifully and authentically, while you stay fully present to enjoy your friends, your family, and your celebration of love.

Featured Weddings:


"Shaina provided the most amazing photos from our March wedding in San Diego. She managed every detail, making the day stress free while providing us with memories of a lifetime.

If you are looking for a photographer who is a true professional, a delight to work with and will deliver amazing results Golden Door Photography should be your choice."

- Linda S.

"We could not be happier that we hired Shaina for our wedding day. Working with her was so easy and stress free, right from the start when we first spoke to her over the phone we could tell she was the best choice for us.

Shaina goes above and beyond... I was truly touched by how thoughtful she is. We were so blown away by our teaser photos, and can't wait to see the rest. I will absolutely contact Shaina for any photography needs in the future and highly recommend her."

I absolutely adore engagement sessions!

They are such a fun, laid back way to get to know each other.

They are also my secret weapon for a smooth wedding day flow.


Wait, what?!


I treat my engagement sessions like a (super fun) lesson.

By the end, you are guaranteed to be a posing rock star.

Then, on your wedding day, you'll be 100% comfortable

so your wedding portraits will be a breeze!

Featured Engagements:


"I instantly felt a connection with Shaina from our very first email. The photos she took are very natural and beautiful, I honestly didn't realize we could look so good! We had an absolute blast during the shoot and felt very comfortable and natural with Shaina and have some gorgeous photos!"

- Alex C.

"You are so amazing!

Once again, I am at my desk at work crying happy tears!

These are just absolutely gorgeous."

- Meredith P.


Time passes quickly.

Let's capture this moment, before it's gone.


Be it newborn snuggles, your daughter's sweet laughter,

your son's silly wiggles, or your mother's wrinkled smile -

I want to help you celebrate and remember

all the beauty in your life.
