- Testimonials -

Sean and Shannon have been a part of our family for years now. I say that with a smile, as friends do become our family. Sean and Shannon have been joining our families milestones beginning with my nephews first birthday, to our wedding. When my sister asked who our photographer would be, it was not even a question. They both came to mind immediately. They are both simply genuine, soft, kind and caring. They make you feel right at home, as if you are in fact, family. We would be so happy and so grateful for them to continue our lives journey with us as we grow as a family.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE OUR PHOTOS! Not only did Sean and Shannon deliver on everything we were promised in our package, they went above and beyond what I would expect from a photographer. From the tiny details like the fixing of my dress at the altar, to the big things like getting us back on our timeline when the DJ forgot the father/daughter dance, we truly appreciate your effort! Thank you for all your patience and effort on our big day, and best of all, you made US look amazing!

MnP Photography has an excellent approach to romance and couple's photography!! There was never a dull moment when doing a shot, and at the end of the session my husband and I both agreed that we felt closer after shooting with Sean. Very artistic and romantic!! We love our photos they are fantastic! Summer & Lewis


Sean and his wife Shannon were absolutely professional! Great team who knows what they are doing. My husband and I didn’t know what kind of pictures we wanted, but after meeting up with them we had a better understanding of what would look perfect for our wedding album. He was great with everyone at the wedding, making them feel comfortable in front of the camera including myself. They were so professional through the whole day, trying to take the best shots ever. It was challenging because of the location of our wedding. We are on the sand in San Clemente and the tide was getting higher, but that didn’t stop them from getting the best pictures ever! Sean’s pictures look like they came right out of a wedding magazine! Thank you so much for all your help the day of the wedding. We couldn't have chosen better!  Karla & Tobey


Right from the start! I new right away when I first met Sean and Shannon at our consultation that he was exactly who he said he was. A professional, a wedding day expert, and genuinely cares about me and my fiance. Memories and Promises is a step up from all other wedding photographers for so many different reasons; from their advocacy during the planning of our wedding to their presence and interaction on the  day of our wedding. Sean and Shannon were right there guiding us, helping us relax and remember that this is "Our Day", so breathe, let things go and celebrate with joy and peace. Honestly, Sean is like your big brother that you love and trust that just so happens to be a talented and blessed photographer. With Shannon at his side, they are an unstoppable team, you simply cannot make a better decision for your wedding photography! Sara & Michael


Sean Cox of Memories and Promises Photography truly proves that he loves his work. My wife and I recently hired Sean to photograph our wedding in Laguna Beach. As we were planning our wedding, already overwhelmed with a list of vendors, we were left with a list of recommendations for photographers and whatever we could find on the internet. Though all photographers were quick to email price lists and hourly rates, Sean’s first desire was to meet us. Sean promptly set up a meeting with the two of us, himself, and his wife Shannon. Sean and Shannon were most interested in us and our love story. Sean then explained his philosophy when it came to photography and its pertinence to our wedding. He and Shannon worked with us to design a custom package to meet our needs and budget.


We had the opportunity to have two sessions with Sean: An engagement shoot and our wedding/reception. The engagement shoot was not only successful, but a very fun family night. They were prompt on providing us edited pictures. Over the next couple of months, Sean was in almost constant contact as we prepared for our big day. He made us feel as if our wedding was the most important event on his calendar.


When the wedding arrived, Sean and Shannon arrived earlier than expected, and stayed much later than planned. Sean was very efficient on getting the wedding party pictures and stayed throughout the night adhering to a picture schedule that he had put together for us. Sean and Shannon were not looming photographers that got in the way during the night. Rather, Sean and Shannon blended into the party, interacted with our guests to get a sense of personalities that I believe enabled an excellent set of pictures. Later on, our guests provided compliments as to how amazing our photography team was.


I cannot provide high enough feedback for Sean and Shannon and would encourage anyone having an event in Southern California to strongly consider Memories and Promises Photography.
