I’m Shannon Rock,


a Northern California-based wedding and lifestyle photographer. My style is romantic, moody with a side of editorial flair. I absolutely love working with people and couples whose passion for life and love is boundless. Those who aren't afraid to jump when some say don't, run when others walk and have an obsession with Jalapeño Margaritas are my kinda folks.


More About Shannon...

I am a passionate child of the 80's who started from nothing and with a bit of elbow grease, creativity and drive became a photo-taking, people loving, artist. I love cooking - like I make some seriously fancy meals on an almost daily basis - traveling, climbing mountains, ordering room service, jalapeno margaritas, watching cheesy crime TV shows, squeezing the heck out of my ridiculously adorable nephews and eating as much burrata as possible. 


I was born and raised in Stockton, California.  After high school graduation in 1999, I served  Active Duty, mainly in New York and on a Buoy Tender for the U.S. Coast Guard.  After service, I frolicked in the world before grasping the passion I have for Photography & Film.  I attended & graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a BFA in Film & Photography and started my own company which today is called Preserve Studio. 



To be frank, and brag a little, I absolutely love what I do! Portraits and couples just make my heart soar.  I feel like my camera is the bond between me and my subject, and with each shot I take, I get to know you. Working with me is more than hiring a photographer, I reveal who you are as a person or a couple in every shot. 



 As a veteran, you will find that I have many creative/passion projects surrounding "Giving Back".  I do philanthropist and work around the world, most recent is for an Orphanage in the Philippines and in Nicaragua.  So please let me know if you have served, rescue animals, do mission work, I believe in giving back to those who give. 



Thank you for taking the time to read and get to me!  To book me and/or my team, say hello!!


LOVE, Shannon
