Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Shaeline. I am originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan but recently moved to Halifax so my husband could pursue his Masters in Architecture. I am a wife and a momma to 2 beautiful children ages 4 and 2. I love being outside, trying new recipes in the kitchen, being active, cozying up with a good book and being with friends and family. I am so excited to begin exploring this city to find the most beautiful spots. I love pretty details and spaces, I love capturing moments in beautiful locations.
How long have you been doing photography?
I have been in love with photography since a young age. I started some courses and doing photos for friends and family since 2009. I officially started my business in 2011 even though it was s a side business. When I became a momma in 2013 I couldn't get enough of capturing my son. The more I took photos of him, the more I realized how precious it is to capture those moments and I am loving being able to do that for others. This will be my first year of full time photography and I couldn't be more excited.
What inspired you to be a wedding photographer?
For a while I was always so nervous to capture weddings, but the more I booked them, the more I fell in love with them. Part of what has inspired me, is looking back at my grandparents photos and thinking about how lucky I am to be able to see their wedding portraits and hear their memories. Not just the formals and the desired pictures, but all those precious in-between moments too! There is something magical about that day. These moments will be caught on camera to be able to treasure and relive those memories.
How far in advance should I book your services?
Currently I am beginning to establish myself and my business in Halifax and surrounding areas. I am only booking so many weddings per season, so the sooner you book your spot the better.
Describe your photography style.
My photography style is described as intimate, real and light. I aim to add freshness into the photos. My desire is for these photos to be memories, but also works of art for you to want to share with others!
Do you have an assistant on the wedding day? If so, why?
I don't have a full time second shooter or assistant. If this is something that you desire than I would be glad to hire one.
How important is photoshop in your final images?
I do tweak all the photos to a certain degree. Some may need a bit more love than others depending on lighting, time of day, location etc.
Who would be your dream client/clients to photograph?
I love to work with clients who are deeply in love. They are passionate people who are laid back but have a clear vision in what they hope their wedding day will look and be like. They have the value of less is more and that their focus on their wedding day is each other. I love to photograph people who value people above all. This could be each other, family, friends and children.
Do you offer customizable packages?
I offer base packages and then within that we can customize it to suit what your dreams are for your day! If there is something you do not see that you would love to have for your day than I am more than happy to discuss that!
"My husband and I have known Shaeline and her husband for a little while. We decided to elope and wanted to capture our day. We asked Shaeline as her husband mentioned to us that she has owned her own photography business. She was delighted to help us! we were so glad we chose her as our photographer! Shaeline was beyond fantastic! Before the actual day, she took some time to scout out some perfect locations for us to preview. On the actual day, she was amazing to work with. She knew exactly how to pose us to make the photographs pop! She was super accommodating and worked seamlessly with some of the props that we wanted in the photos (personalized Coke-a-Cola bottles, airplane in the background, and poses that incorporated the airplane). Our day was perfect and with Shaeline's photography skills, easy going and bubbly personality, it made our day that much more special. We loved working with her so much we had her back to do some family photographs at our summer reception. She worked well with all family members and had such a variety of poses for us to take for the new pictures. To this day, we recommend hr work to family and friends and always get comments on our photographs that she took for us."
"Shaeline was so wonderful to work with as a photographer. She has such a natural instinct for where to be and when for catching all the great moments during a wedding day. I knew that I could fully trust her creativity and technical skills to deliver beautiful images. When you hire Shaeline Faith Photography, you are getting a person who goes above and beyond her job, she is passionate and is able to make anyone feel comfortable in front of the lens so that her work is genuinely authentic."
