The Photographer

"Live the life you've dreamed"


Who is Shannon Sasaki: I am a local girl, born and raised on the beautiful island of Oahu (Kaimuki girl).   I quit nursing school to pursue this passion of mine.  It all started in high school when I took my first photography class.  I started off with black and white film, developing everything on my own in a darkroom.  I shot for fun and tried the whole fashion scene, shot some events, took a couple of classes in college, yada yada.  But it wasn't until I 2nd shot for someone at a wedding, that's when I found my true calling.  Photography has truly changed my life forever... I can honestly say it was my first love.  I knew that this was something I wanted to be doing for the rest of my life.  There’s nothing I love more than being able to capture timeless moments/memories for people to enjoy for a lifetime. 
Why invest in me:  When you think about it, your photographer is going to be with you for the entire day.  From the start I want to make sure you feel comfortable with me.  Let's chat, skype, grab dessert (yes I'm a fatty and my ultimate weakness is sweets), however it is I'm able to get to know you better and hear what you envision for your day.  I take my job very seriously and know you are trusting me with your memories.  I want to be sure to really get to know each and every one of my couples so I'm able to document their day with a personalized touch.  Leave all the photo stuff to me, don't worry about posing and lighting.  I always make sure my couples are looking fierce and feeling beautiful.  I just want my couples truly enjoying their day.  I GOTCHU!! :)
