Hey there! I'm Shauna and I'm a Vancouver wedding photographer.
I am ridiculously organized, I laugh like I mean it, and I have no shame in my love for young adult books, bad horror movies, and following too many reality television shows.
I believe in love. I believe in charity and paying it forward. I believe in equality. I believe in second chances. I believe in dancing like nobody is watching, and I believe in chasing your dreams.
I'd love to know what you believe in!
I dance like nobody is watching all the time. I will inevitably dance while shooting your reception. I promise a dancing photographer takes the best photos.
I’m a gamer. Board games are definitely my favourite (Munchkin, Smash Up, 7 Wonders, Castles of Burgundy, Splendor), but I will always be a Nintendo girl.
Broadway musicals are my happy place. Shows I've seen recently are The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q, The Lion King, Wicked, and Mary Poppins.
I pride myself on being a minimalist in most areas of my life. But my lipstick collection is a litttttttttle out of control. Never ask me to pick a favourite!
Once I second shot a completely private bride and groom portrait session in the Vancouver Art Gallery. Being one of five people in the entire gallery was crazy!
I shot an engagement shoot at a Blenz coffee shop where the couple had their first date. Blenz featured it on their website AND sent them a wedding gift!
I photographed a ceremony processional that involved a groom, white horses, and hundreds of people dancing down the middle of Burrard Street.
I had dinner for two in the Brix & Mortar courtyard. It's probably the most romantic dinner I've ever had, and I shared it with my second shooter!
I shot a wedding reception entirely in Russian. I had no clue what was happening or being said the entire time, but I learned about some really cool wedding traditions!
I photographed a Hindu (and Jewish!) wedding with a bride in a white sari. Traditionally, wedding saris are red. She and her family searched for months!
