"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). 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. I quit nursing school to pursue this passion of mine. I can honestly say photography 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 memories for people to enjoy for a lifetime. It would mean the world to me if you would allow me to do that for you.
I currently live 2 lives... one in Hawaii and one in San Francisco. My love of 6 years is currently working as an animator at Pixar Studios. So yes... we are living that "Lala Land" life only with a happier ending where we actually make it work. Thank you Skype and Facetime!! We both support each other's hustle and there isn't anything I wouldn't do to make it work with her. So if you are getting married in the NorCal area, holla at a girl!
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 and I want to get to know the both of you as well. I want to hear it all! How did you meet? Is it going to be a wild blurry dance your ass off kind of wedding or a classy fairytale Disney kind of wedding? Either way... I'M HERE FOR IT!! 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 you so I'm able to document your 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 you truly enjoying your day. I GOTCHU!! :)
