Hi I’m Shannon. Nice to meet you.
I was born in South Africa and now live with my husband, Chris, Lulu the dog and Margaux the hamster. We live in the heart of the countryside in a beautiful village called Aldworth in West Berkshire.
Ever since I can remember I used to read fairytale books and watch Disney films. I always imagined that it was me up in the high tower, on the white galloping horse, kissing the slimy frog, prancing around as the princess in the big beautiful sparkly gown ... and then I grew up!
But I never did - or had to! My job is photographing fairytales and sharing the most special day between two people amongst all their family and friends. The best bit is that I get to document and tell your fairytale story for you to remember and cherish ... “happily ever after!”
My style of photography is fun, spontaneous, colourful and vibrant. I document and capture your exciting day as it unfolds. I photograph in a very natural and unobtrusive way, but also shoot those important traditional family shots! I let your day blossom naturally capturing all the best, funny & happy moments.
SLR Photography is built on passion and instinct - I love my job (shout it from the rooftops!)
I am based in Aldworth in West Berkshire, but I am happy to travel anywhere throughout the UK or the world - my first wedding I ever photographed was in Slovakia. I love different cultures and traditions! So whether it be down the road or over the seas - I am happy to go anywhere!
