new york & new jersey wedding photography

Shawn McGinniss is a wedding photojournalist residing in New York City. Raised near Cherry Hill in south Jersey, Shawn shoots weddings and events all over NJ, Philadelphia, NYC, Westchester, Nassau, and Long Island.


Shawn captures weddings and events using a photojournalistic style with elements of contemporary portraiture. He strives to document the beautiful details and special moments commonly lost in the fast-moving action of the day's events. His critical eye for detail and creative compositions allow him to capture a wedding and retell it as an artful, visual story.

On his personal time, Shawn enjoys shooting landscapes and post-industrial cityscapes in and around New York, emotive portraiture, street photography ("found scenes"), and conceptual imagery. He travels frequently between New York and his hometown of Somerdale, NJ. Shawn shoots using film and digital formats, depending on the project and desired results, but always enjoys spending time in a traditional darkroom.

Shawn offers competitive packages with or without albums, all of which include a full day of shooting, 4x6 proofs, a private online image gallery, a DVD of all images, light photo retouching, and wedding album consultation.
