Meet Shannon Edmonds


Shannon Edmonds is a highly trained portrait photographer. She is a member of Professional Photographers of America, and an Instructor for the DP School of Photography. She has been in the biz since 1999 when she trained as a traditional retouch artist for Millers Professional Imaging, the nations leading photo lab. She was the highest level artist in the retouching department working on high profile clients, and competition prints.

After the birth of her first baby in 2005, Shannon opened her own business photographing babies for friends and family and she teamed up with Dan Pettus Photography photographing upscale weddings in Temecula Valley Wine Country. Continually growing and learning, she sought out reputable photography workshops and conferences appreciating the skills of master photographers, and applying their methods to her style.
