 Elegant Edmonton Destination Wedding Photographers

Shalene Dawn Photography is a professional Edmonton based destination photographers who specializes in capturing your destination wedding and engagement.

Her photos are simple and elegant with a vintage style feel. 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 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 love, and gets a little bit silly and giddy when she hears peoples love stories.

She is a member of the PWPOC (Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada) and is with the BBB (Better Business Bureau)

She is a member of The Knot, and Wedding Wire, and has been featured 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 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, 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 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 a 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 photographers.

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.


In her “About Me” page, she says:

My Business

SIMPLE
Photography can be very complex and confusing. I’ll take the worry and stress out of it,
and make your day easier and less complicated

EXCLUSIVE
I only accept a small number of clients every year to ensure high quality products and services.
Each client is treated as special, unique, and valuable.

My Photography

ELEGANT
I want my photos and style to convey grace, luxury and refinement.

EMOTIONAL
More than capturing the perfect bridal pose, I want to capture the special
looks, tears, smiles, and genuine emotion of your day

My Life

FAITH
“And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice,
to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?”
~ Micah 6:8

LOVE
I believe that love conquers all; that it is a path you must choose to take every day.
It isn’t always easy to love, but it is the only thing that is worth pursuing in life.


In her Introduction Video she says:

My name is Shalene, and I’m a wedding photographer.

I believe in capturing emotions for eternity

I believe in long, passionate kisses

I believe in unconditional love that lasts a lifetime

I married the love of my life when I was 20.

He was everything I could ever ask for.

Fast forward a few years, and a few kids, and our marriage was barely even there. It was being held together by a tiny thread. I couldn’t remember why I loved him, or why I had ever decided to marry him, and I was ready to walk out the door.

I didn’t think we’d make it.

At one point, I went into my bedroom and pulled out my wedding album and video. I listened to us say our vows. I looked at the love that radiated from the pictures, and I bawled my eyes out.

I had caught a sliver of the love that had brought us together in the first place, and I wanted it back. So that’s what we did. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but we got our love back.

That’s what pictures can do.

That’s what I want my pictures to do.

I want to bring people back to the most love filled day of their entire lives every time they see their photos.

I want them to remember why they fell in love.

Photography isn’t just a job for me… it’s my passion.

It’s my calling.

I believe in capturing emotions for eternity

I believe in long, passionate kisses

I believe in unconditional love that lasts a lifetime

My name is Shalene, and I’m a wedding photographer.
