Hi!!! I'm Shi (short for Shirley) Lessner. I have the greatest occupation in the UNIVERSE!!! I have been a photog since I was 13 years old when my dad bought me my very first SLR (a Canon AE-1) and I was hooked. I grew up on a horse farm, where photographic opportunites were everywhere. I was the official photographer at every family event from that day forward. I really went crazy after my first son was born...I could NOT stop photographing him!!!

I have been photographing weddings for over 15 years and I LOVE them. I love the excitement of the day, the fast pace, the gowns, the shoes, the way the bride and groom look at each other...EVERYTHING!!!! I feel it is an honor and a priviledge to photograph a couples wedding. When you hire me to photograph a wedding, you get ME, not someone who works with me. That is a Shi Lessner Photography Standard!!!

I also feel very blessed to have the honor of photographing Bat and Bar Mitzvahs, senior portraits, family portraits, children's portraits, models portfolio's, pet portraits, commercial and product photography (I just love it all.) I will travel for your wedding/event or photo session. Please call me to discuss the details.

My work has appeared in Styleline Magazine, Globe Magazine, Livingston County Press and The Detroit News.

I live in Brighton, Michigan with my husband Mark, two sons Sebastian and Zachary, our adorable and appreciative rescue dogs and two not so appreciative, rescue cats.

I am looking forward to talking to you and more importantly, PHOTOGRAPHING YOU!!!

Thank you for stopping by,
