Shane Carpenter


In addition to his work blending photojournalism and fine art, Shane finds inspiration in travel, music, and food (growing and preparing as well as eating). He has photographed in extraordinary locations both humble and sublime and considers creative problem solving a noble life pursuit.  Shane has taught photography to the underserved among us, studied bears and monkeys (at separate times!), and recently gained new insights and understanding with his own recent marriage.  He is incredibly grateful to be a trusted wedding and family documentarian.

“ We began this journey by reviewing hundreds of photographers' websites and interviewing ten in person. We ultimately chose you and have absolutely no regrets! You are so much fun to work with, and your amazing talent yields such gorgeous photographs. We will treasure your works forever. Thanks for being such a delightful part of our engagement and wedding. ”
