First of all, I am SO glad you're here! I am a wedding and senior photographer based in West Kentucky. Not from this area or looking for destination options? Don't let location scare you away, I love to travel and it would be a thrill to work with you wherever you are headed!

So a few things about me:

  • I've called Kentucky home my entire life. Traveling can always change the scenery, but there really is no place like home.

  • I am married to my best friend and we have two little "mini" versions of us that run around constantly keeping us on our toes. My husband is also my second shooter for weddings and you will love that as much as I do, promise!

  • Before our kids we had Piper, a beagle hound that was my husbands wedding gift to me. After our daughter was born we got a second beagle named Otis. Two children and two dogs is quite the circus, but I'm proud of it.


While photography is my career (and I love it!) I'm also all about all things outdoors. I love fishing, camping, hiking; but I'm kind of a girly girl too - I consider it balance!

If you're in need of a photographer for your wedding or senior portraits, I would love to talk to you! Send me a message and let's chat. I can’t wait to meet you!




(so it's not the hard stuff but I love them)


(mostly all year but definitely at Christmas. And yes, I do know how it will end)


(one of my top favorites so far is Ruby Falls in Chattanooga)


(I have no explanation for this, i just like them)


(yep, there it is - I won't pass up a day on the water if I can help it, I have a fishing problem)

Word On The Street Is...

She’s done our engagement and wedding photos and they've all turned out great. We look forward to having more photo sessions with her down the road.

 Shayna did an AMAZING job with my daughter's SENIOR pictures. She went out of her way to make sure that we got the pictures that we wanted. It was like over 100 degrees the day we shot (with the heat index) and she never got frustrated and did not rush through the session. I was a little nervous with how the pictures would come out because it was SO hot....but you would have NEVER known it was so hot outside. My daughter looked fresh, beautiful, relaxed and her personality came shining through in the photos. I only have ONE daughter and so these pictures mean the world to my family and we could not be ANY happier with the way they turned out. If you are in the market for a talented, friendly photographer...look NO more. You have found the perfect person with Shayna Johnson!

Shayna is so Amazing!!! She has so much creativity! We had our fur-babies in our photos and she was so patient and captured such gorgeous photos.

Best photographer ever!!! You and your husband working with us throughout the process and being there that day really meant a lot and we are were so happy you were there. The memories you captured were phenomenal and we couldn’t be happier.

Shayna and her husband are truly a dynamic duo. Photography was at the top of my list of vendors I wanted to splurge a little on and they exceeded my expectations. Shayna answered my 100’s of questions without hesitation and always gave me the info I needed. She’s so thorough about your wedding and she wants to make sure she knows what kind of shots you’re looking for. Fast forward to our wedding day, it was insanely busy, but we still got some amazing shots. Riley (Shayna’s husband) made my husband feel so comfortable in front of the camera (which he usually hates). We decided to do outdoor pictures when the humidity was awful and although we were sweating, we still got incredible shots. They even dealt with my complaining because my feet hurt from high heels.  (Sorry!) Shayna and Riley really are an amazing team together. I highly recommend having a second photographer, too, because it makes it a lot easier to get the shots you want without one photographer having to be in 2 places at once. I’m so happy with how our preview photos turned out and I can’t wait to see the rest! Thank you, Shayna & Riley!
