ABOUT SHAUNA

Vancouver wedding photographer standing in front of rusted warehouse holding camera with polka dot wrist strap

I'm Shauna, my pronouns are she/her, I am super queer, and I'm a Vancouver wedding photographer. I am also a girlfriend, a crazy cat lady, and a gamer. I am a textbook Type A, an easy crier, and a shameless laugher.

I love...

  • all things Disney and musicals
  • black and white stripes
  • sour beer
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • young adult books
  • binging through the latest Netflix original series
  • eating popcorn for dinner

I believe...

I believe in equality. I believe in charity and paying it forward. 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!

things you didn't know...

I think it's totally possible to be cat person and a dog person in equal measures.  That said, a lint brush doesn't stand a chance in my apartment, but I don't mind!

I’m a gamer.  Board games are definitely my favourite (Splendor and 7 Wonders are the best!), but I am absolutely obsessed with Animal Crossing New Horizons right now.

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 straightened my hair from the time I was 13 until a year ago when I saw Russian Doll on Netflix and totally fell in love with Natasha Lyonne's curly hair.

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!

My Love Story

shauna + manue

We met on Tinder when Manue was sitting in Heathrow airport on her way to France for a month.  We spent the next month texting and video chatting every day.

I attempted to surprise her at the airport when she returned from France.  I managed to keep it a secret until the day before her flight, so I surprised her with flowers instead.

Our first date was a clay mug workshop at 4Cats on Main Street.  We are both terrible at pottery and ended up with bowls instead because we ran out of time to make handles.

Manue's family all speaks French, and I haven't taken French since the 9th grade.  Fortunately, I have a group of 3rd graders eager to learn French with me on Duolingo.

We really enjoy playing board games together.  Manue beat me at my favourite game our first weekend together and I have been determined to beat her at all the games since.

Manue enjoys the outdoors. A lot. She introduced me to geocaching, inspired me to finally get a bike, and she has me wearing Arc'teryx. I might even start a garden this year!
