Manifesto

I have a mixed style of romantic and documentary approach to wedding photography. I want to capture the real life of your wedding, not only staged portraits but the essence of the different personalities at your wedding. The emotions, the silly moments, the romantic moments, the joy filled moments. I want to capture the delight of the day in peoples faces and the moments that make us human. I want you to be able to look back at your wedding photography and enjoy the story of your special day, told by the relationships captured, the real moments between friends and family and the essence of your love.

About me

I am a full time photographer and have been shooting weddings for the past 7 years. Traveling to places near and far for romantic and joy filled weddings is a dream come true for me. I serve couples who seek joy in there relationship and who aspire to make their love story last.  I often help pose couples and then when they start to relax I quickly capture the in-between laughs, fun kisses and joy filled moments. If you want to open up with each other and get a little silly or messy then I am the right girl to serve you as your photographer. I am a seeker of beauty and joy. Living by the sea, stunning flowers and gorgeous sunsets make my heart smile.  

When I am not shooting weddings, I am working on my female surf film about surfers in the U.K. I enjoy bringing my film making cinematic eye into my photography style.

SHEALAN MADE THE PHOTOS ON OUR WEDDING DAY EFFORTLESS. I’VE SPENT ALL AFTERNOON IN AWE TRYING TO CHOSE FAVORITES FROM HUNDREDS OF STUNNING IMAGES. SHE WAS SO CLEAR AND DIRECTIVE WHEN NEEDED AND COMPLETELY INCONSPICUOUS MAKING EVERYONE COMPLETELY AT EASE. SHEA IS INVENTIVE AND INTUITIVE AND TOOK PHOTOS WE WILL LOVE FOREVER, CAPTURING MOMENTS WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW EXISTED.
WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR HER TALENT IN PHOTOGRAPHY TOPPING OFF OUR FOREVER CELEBRATIONS.

David and Kate

We would love to thank Shealan for being our photographer on our wedding.
From the beginning when I made contact with Shealan , I knew I’ve made a good decision.
She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera, as we are not really “selfies” fans.
The pictures she made are amazing, we will be going back to them, always with smile, as she was able to capture the best time of our life on a pictures. We would recommend to all couples who are getting married, the professionalism and understanding is first thing Shealan is thinking about.
We are grateful Shealan.

Naomi and Jamie

”Shealan was in 100 places at once and didn’t miss a moment. She was a true professional; in the service we weren’t even aware of her presence and yet she captured so many intimate moments..Jamie’s face when he turned around and first saw me, our expressions when we exchanged vows, the cheeky smile of our flower girl-Shea got it all!!! We can’t recommend her highly enough-she worked tirelessly from the start of the service until the sparkler send off at the end of the night and all of her photos are stunningly beautiful and we will cherish them forever. Candid moments beautifully captured”

FAQ
QUESTION
ANSWER

WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?

I like to give up to 40 days before delivering the images to you. I usually edit a highlight reel of images for you to have a sneak peak as I know you are eager to see them! Also, I may go slightly over the 30 day time frame…If I am taking special care over your images and the schedule is busy, I would rather not rush the editing.

CAN WE HAVE THE UNEDITED IMAGES?

It is not something that I would try sell you as I put a lot of time and creativity into editing up some gorgeous pictures for you.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE GET?

I can take up to a couple of thousand images in one wedding. I then select the top 400-800 depending on you package of choice. These are high quality images capturing all those special little moments.

WHAT IMAGE RIGHTS DO WE HAVE?

The images belong to you in all capacity. However, you may not sell your images for profit or publish the photos in any magazine (print or online) without my written consent.

WHAT IS THE BOOKING PROCESS?

Choose your package and chat to me if you need some help in doing so. Then pay a 20% booking fee to hold your date, this is non refundable. The full amount needs to be paid up to 2 weeks before your wedding date. I am more than happy to work out payment plans.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM YOU?

I like to make you feel completely at ease. I do not intrude on moments, but if there is something that needs to be said or moved from a shot I will speak up. I take a fly on the wall documentary approach so like to fade into the background. When it is necessary for me to be loud and get big groups together for portrait shots, I will be a little bit bossy! Getting people together is like herding cats so I normally ask groomsmen to help me get people together.
