Hey! We’re Shannon and Joe Terrell!
And our little wedding company, Century Tree Co., is what happens when two people in the wedding industry – a California girl and a Texas boy – fall in love, get married, and move to Colorado.
We’re visual storytellers, and we believe every wedding or elopement should be as unique as the love story that leads you to the altar (or mountaintop). We’re not fans of staged, awkward, or cheesy poses – we value raw emotions and vulnerable experiences, and our photography style reflects our desire to capture romance and adventure in all of its magical, wild, and awe-inspiring glory.
But most importantly, we live to celebrate marriage. As a married couple, we think marriage is one of the greatest things two people can decide to do together. And, because of that, we want to be more than people who provide a service on your wedding day – we want to invest in you and your relationship. We’ll be there to laugh, cry, and squeal with joy on one of the most emotional, intimate, and important days of your life – and, all the while, documenting every crazy, wondrous, and precious moment along the journey.
At Century Tree Co., you and your spouse are more than clients – you’re our friends. And we’re for you.
“Joe and Shannon with Century Tree Co. are a fantastic duo that I highly recommend. They are both very thoughtful in their work and are easy to work with! Shannon beautifully captured every moment throughout the day, truly communicating the joy we were feeling! I can’t help but smile every time I look through my photos.”

“Shannon is AMAZING! Shannon is an amazing photographer and will capture every sweet moment of your wedding day. I wanted a photographer that captured all the little moments and Shannon really brought that to life. She is encouraging and makes you feel like a model while also directing you on what to do in the most natural/ fun way. She is so flexible, rolls with the day as it comes and made us as bride and groom incredibly calm. One of our favorite moments on our wedding day was our portraits after the ceremony because she let us do our thing while also giving us direction and making us feel amazing.”

“I could not have picked a better photographer and DJ through CTP. Absoulutly AMAZING. Shannon is an incredible photographer and you can tell she truly cares about capturing the perfect photos! She not only did a great job taking pictures, but offered advice and worked with the wedding coordinator and staff to ensure a flawless evening. Her attitude and smiles and passion for photography went a long way and the end result is priceless. Our photos are amazing and I am so glad I chose them. Joe the DJ is also PERFECT. He offers great recommendations and reaches out to the bride and groom to ensure a perfect playlist. I was indecisive on alot of music to play ie walkdown music etc and let him pick. He did perfect and really set the mood to an awesome ceremony and reception and has great taste in music. Even more provided fun lights and bubbles on the dance floor which was a huge hit with our guests. ”
