Hello there!

I'm Shannon Schwabe, owner and lead photographer here at Visual Narrative Photography. I am a visual story teller, capturing the love stories of couples, telling your business story through branding and marketing images, and capturing those fleeting moments of you and your family together. I feel privileged to have been in the wedding industry and a professional photographer here in Michigan for 11 years. I love meeting new people, the outdoors and all of the dogs.

Photography Services

I hear it all the time: “I don’t want my photos to look posed.” With a lifestyle photography session your images will be anything but posed. Think candid’s that serve to “capture the moment” and stunning, true-to-life photography that tells your story just as it is, at that precise moment. This slice-of-life approach is great for any genre of photography including weddings, family sessions or other special occasions. With action driven details it will bring your images to life over and over again.

I will work with her for any and all of our future photo needs!


"Shannon and her team are fabulous. She has an impeccable eye for composition, light, and color. She's delightful to work with and makes you feel at ease within the first 30 seconds, making for relaxed, genuine expressions and posture. " - Kristen
