Well, Hellooo Gorgeous


I'm Shalene! (Pronounced like 'Celine' but with a 'shhhh' on front!)


I've been fondly described as "delightfully weird" by those who know me.


I like to wear floofy elephant pants that my best friend bought me from Cambodia and ferment ginger carrots in my kitchen.


I'm into boho, woodsy vibes with a sprinkle of magic and moodiness.

Donut parties, exploring hidden trails and oooing over your latest great find are all on the top of my to-do list.


Working with me is a pretty chill experience. I always want your photo sessions to be positive, fun and relaxed. (While still getting GREAT shots, obviously!)


I won't make you get all "posey" and stiff. I'm always aiming for really natural interactions between you two all while yelling "yasss guurl" encouragement from behind the lens.


I've been doing this wedding photography thing since 2013, (man, I'm old now.) and since then have won multiple awards for my photos and had the privilege of traveling all over Western Canada from Manitoba to Vancouver Island photographing couples in some of the most beautiful locations in the world!


Just so you know, I'm unreasonably excited for you to email me so we can set up a call and you can tell me all about your big plans for your wedding!

We're going to have soooo much fun together!

let's connect

kind words

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! all the little intangibles you got of our peoples in the streetcar/ reception, and then omigosh the ones of us in the woods 🤯
We will treasure these for always, thank you for capturing our love and where we come from 🤍And whenever anyone else we know is getting hitched we will grab them kind of aggressively by the shoulders and demand loudly that they work with you.

Next Steps


01.


Meeting


Once you've sent me a message using my contact form, I'll be in touch to set up a time and day that we can meet each other and experience some awkward first date vibes as we get to know one another.


02.


Quote


Once we've gone over what you're looking for with your wedding photography, I'll email you a quote containing your unique wedding package and price.


03.


Contract


Now that we know exactly what you're wanting, we put it into legal jargon and have you sign your first born son over to me. (just kidding... maybe)

It's actually a pretty straight forward contract that goes over the basics of who's responsible for what and when!


04.


Payment


Once the contract is signed you'll get an invoice.

A deposit of 50% of the contract total is required to hold your date, and the remaining amount is due 1 month before the wedding date.

That's it! You're all booked!
