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.

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.

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!!

Shyann was amazing to work with! Her photographic style is so beautiful, and she perfectly captured our day down to the little details. We will always cherish having these memories captured so stunningly, and all of our family members love them too! Shyann was so helpful and communicative throughout, and put us at ease on our big day.

Shyann's photos speak for themselves but it's so fun to actually be the one she is taking photos of! She shot my bridals and then our wedding day with second shooter, Lauren. I knew to just listen and go with Shy's ideas, suggestions, and tips which turned into amazing bridal photos that were so hard NOT to share until post wedding. Shy and Lauren were already familiar with the venue and we left it up to them on when and where to take photos. They covered eight hours of our day from getting ready, crying, hugging, dancing, laughing, and probably some falling. I cant wait to see our wedding photos but I have no doubt they'll be awesome! Don't hesitate to book Shy Laurel as your photographer, you wont regret it!

ShyAnn is amazing! She did our engagement shoot and also our wedding day with an assistant photographer at both! I loved all of our pictures and she is organized, easy to communicate with and her photography vision is really beautiful! I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Couldn't have asked for better photographers. Shyann and Tawny are AMAZING. If I had to do it all over again I would choose them in a heartbeat!!
