About Me

I am Shay Scala. I am a true extrovert. I am happiest when I meet new people! Their stories always raise my energy level until we're doubled over in laughter by the end of a session. I'm loving and caring. Hearing your story and finding out what makes you a couple, allows your relationship to shine through your photos.

Is there anything better than capturing the moment? Capturing a mood - emotional and real? Telling a story - just the way it was?
I don't think so.


I don't shy away from honest conversation. In fact, I thrive on it. You'll find that our session is jam packed with not only memorable photos that last a lifetime, but with heartfelt conversation. Don't be surprised if I throw in a story or two about my four boys!

My optimism and excitement for life is contagious. Learning and growing makes me smile each and every day. Being able to deliver beautiful images and see my clients holding them in their hands brings me a joy I can only describe as bliss.

I'm so excited to have you as part of the Shay Scala Photography family and cannot wait to call you a friend!

"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching, love like you'll never be hurt, sing like there's nobody listening and live like it's heaven on earth."


Kind Words

Shay was so much fun to work with! We felt very comfortable while taking pictures, and absolutely LOVED the outcome! Shay went above and beyond to make sure she got the perfect shots! My fiancé and I highly recommend!

Shay gave my fiancé & me an unforgettable experience. We have never been so comfortable while taking pictures. The session was adventurous and captured our joy so genuinely!

Shay captured the precious moments we can enjoy looking at forever. Not only are the pictures beautiful but her personality was vibrant, fun & my family lover her!
