A little about Shannon from Adore Photography
Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Shannon Scholtes and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Boulder County. I also have experience working with magazines and a variety of other businesses.
WHO I AM [PROFESSIONALLY]
I started my career as a professional photographer in 2004. I have a BFA from Colorado State University with a concentration in Photography. I started out in a photography studio, where I was a photographer for 4.5 years, photo editor/retoucher and studio manager. Adore Photography was created in 2006 and by 2009 it became a full time business. I have photographed thousands of portrait sessions and well over 100 weddings.
WHO I AM [PERSONALLY]
I am a Colorado native. After living in Fort Collins for about ten years, I relocated to Louisville, CO. Like most Coloradans, I love being outside; hiking in the mountains and going on family bike rides around town are some of my favorite ways to spend time. I love having a vegetable garden and fresh veggies in the fall. In addition to being a photographer, I am a mother to two beautiful and smart little kids. I also have a very wonderful and supportive husband, you can read our love story below.
MY LOVE STORY begins when I was in college. During one of my college summers, I took a 5 week study abroad course with one of my German professors and a handful of CSU students in Hanover, Germany. At the time one of my good friends from high school was studying for a year in Karlsruhe, Germany through a program at her university. I went to visit her several weeks before my study abroad course started. She had met and became good friends with the man that would become my husband. I met him the first day I arrived in Germany; after keeping up a long distance relationship (Germany to the U.S.) for 1.5 years my husband was able to secure an internship that would later turn into a full time job in Fort Collins. We married after about 2 years of dating, and the rest, as they say, is history.
