Shalene Dawn Photography | Edmonton Wedding Photographers Alberta » Simply Elegant. Shalene Dawn Photography is an Edmonton, Alberta based wedding and engagement photographers.


Shalene Dawn Photography is an award winning, professional Edmonton Alberta based photographers who specializes in capturing your wedding and engagement.

Soft, natural light, with a gentle matte finish are things that make her inner photographers get all tingly.

Her photography style is relaxed and easygoing. While she enjoys a photojournalistic style, she has also been trained in the art of posing. But she’ll never pose you in a stylized, fashion way like some other photographers. Only in a natural, complementary way. Little things like leaning forward and pulling your chin out just a little bit so that there are no double chins anywhere in sight.

She is interested in truly connecting with her Edmonton Wedding clients, not just as a Photographers, but as a friend. She doesn’t want to just show up to take photographs, but to capture peoples inner essence and spirit in their photos.

She absolutely adores Photographers, love, and gets a little bit silly and giddy when she hears peoples love stories.

She is a member of the PWPC (Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada) and is with the Edmonton BBB (Better Business Bureau) Photographers and has been a featured Photographers on the cover of the style section in The Edmonton Journal

While she primarily shoots weddings in Edmonton, Alberta, she also loves destination wedding photography – especially to anywhere in the rocky mountains. Places like Calgary Alberta, Banff Alberta, Jasper Alberta, and Red Deer Alberta are also places she enjoys going to take pictures and photos.

Her favorite Photographers place that she’s visited so far has been Fairmont, British Columbia, and she can’t wait to try out places like Vancouver, British Columbia, and Victoria British Columbia.

In and around Edmonton Alberta, she loves to go for walks in the River Valley, visit the local attractions like Fort Edmonton Park,  Edmonton Muttart Conservatory, and The Edmonton Art Gallery.

Shalene enjoys hanging out with fellow photographers locally, and internationally through social media. She hopes to one day travel the world photographing destination weddings in places like Italy, Mexico, Hawaii and Scotland. (just to name a few)

Along with other Alberta photographers, she likes spending time with anyone who has anything to do with Weddings – planners, videographers, caterers, and decorators. She loves to be inspired by other people and their love for life and their jobs.

When she’s not out at weddings being someones photographers, She’s a busy mother to two little girls, and wife to an amazing husband, who buys her chocolate for no reason other than that he loves her. (or maybe because she get’s crazy hormonal fairly often)

She is currently without any fur babies in their rental suite, but she can’t wait to get some kittens and a puppy when they live in a home of their own. Maybe some fish and birds too. Who knows, there might even be some reptiles. She’s one of those crazy Alberta photographers.

Shalene is excited about the Photographers work that she does and loves to share it with aspiring new photographers who are trying to break into the Edmonton Alberta Wedding market, and need a little extra help with their photography.

She wishes she could write poetry and get all the thought from her head out onto paper using fancy words, but it takes her far too long and lots of thesaurus searching to find the words needed to express the emotions that are going on inside.

She is a follower of Jesus Christ, and wouldn’t be where she is today without the love and care of her Saviour.

He is the reason she draws breath, and all praise for anything good in her and her life goes to Him alone.

– Ed

Shalene was an absolute doll to work with! If we had any questions about anything, she got back to us right away. Very professional and sweet. The photos turned out gorgeous and I couldn’t be happier that we got to work with her on our special day. Shalene was willing to go above and beyond for us at the wedding, and everyone loved her. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.”

Catherine & Kenny


Shalene was absolutely wonderful to work with! She has a great eye, all of our photographs are gorgeous, and she made the whole process so easy that it was like working with a (super talented) friend. We received our wedding photos very quickly, and we can’t stop looking through them over and over and exclaiming over how stunning they are. She made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera, and it definitely shows. I would recommend her 100% to anyone looking for a fabulous photographer!

Adam & Kristen

When we first looked into booking Shalene Dawn Photography for our wedding, it was evident that Shalene really likes to work with soft edges and colours. The bright orange and green we chose didn’t particularly fit this theme, yet she captured the vividness exactly as we’d hoped. We especially appreciated the timeliness images were available to us and the enthusiasm portrayed while preparing them. I think the greatest testament to Shalene’s work is all the “ooooo’s” and “aaaaah’s” heard as people flip through our beautiful book of memories that sits on our coffee table. We have been asked several times “Who was your photographer?” accompanied by comments like “gorgeous pictures.” I may be biased, but nearly a year after our wedding I still find myself looking at our pictures frequently… LOVE them! If you choose Shalene Dawn Photography, expect excellent product delivered with a huge smile 😀

Mari & Shaun


Shalene was both professional and fun, which I believe are equally important in a wedding photographer. Not only was she there on a pretty darn awesome and important day, documenting everything so I wouldn’t have to, she was also there for me, working with my bridesmaids, keeping me calm, making me laugh, and ordering other people about (incredibly important tasks!). She over delivered on the amount of time it took her to get all the pictures back to me, and each and every one was simply gorgeous (even though my hair wasn’t). I love her style; how she uses natural light to both soften and brighten each picture. Even though I know she spent hours editing everything, all the photographs looked natural and put me right back in that moment so I can enjoy my wedding day over and over and over again. I certainly won’t be getting married again, but I would hire Shalene again in a heartbeat!

Dawn & Chris


We we’re so lucky to have Shalene photograph our wedding! We received our photos shortly after our wedding and we’re beyond impressed with her work. Shalenes photos are very soft, elegant, and unique. She made us feel like family and cared so much to make every moment special with her special touches. Her passion for photography shows in her work and couldn’t be happier to have chosen her.

— Celina


Shalene drove across three provinces and flew in a tiny float plane to a remote lake to come photograph my parent’s 25th wedding anniversary celebration! She captured so many incredibly special moments from the big surprise to tears and kisses. The reason I LOVE Shalene’s photography is because she has an ability, unlike anyone else I’ve ever seen, to capture in photos the emotion and essence of a person. It’s like her camera lens has access to your soul. Thank You Shalene for giving us the gift of so many precious memories forever preserved in your stunning photos. <3

— Julianne


If you’re looking for a professional, sweet, patient and kind photographer whose naturally bold with talent she’s the one! I’m absolutely blown away by all of the photos from both our engagement session and wedding. At 8 1/2 months pregnant she was enthusiastic, focused and motivated to capture just the right moment during our day. In the end she was able to freeze frame our memories of our wedding day. The pictures are elegantly soft and understated and the reaction I’m getting from all our family and friends is that our photos are breathtaking. Shalene I’m unable to come up with words that can satisfying our gratitude for you being our photographer. Thank you for sharing in our excitement on that day and throughout the whole process. You helped to put my mind at ease knowing we were in good hands!

Jordanna & Travis


Shalene and her team did an amazing job for our wedding. We were stoked to see the final product; the pictures were exquisite. She captured every moment of our wedding while 38 weeks pregnant; and did it without complaint. Her and her team were so easy to work with and we had a lot of fun. Finally, working with her was very flexible; she really was open to anything we wanted to do and setting up the times with her was so easy.
