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 dabbled in a bunch of different photography endeavours but it wasn't until I was asked to 2nd shoot for someone at a wedding... that's when I fell madly in love. The fire was ignited and I knew that this was something I wanted to be doing for the rest of my life. I quit nursing school to pursue this passion of mine. There is 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 7 years (now fiance) currently works at Pixar Animation Studios. 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. Since I'm always flying back and forth, it allows me to accept shoots in the NorCal area as well. So if you're in the NorCal area, lets connect!
Working with Shannon was a fun experience with her welcoming personality and her eye for a great shot. My boyfriend and I are not ones to take a lot of pictures of ourselves. But Shannon makes you feel very comfortable with her. She doesn’t ask you to do anything you’re uncomfortable with. Instead she gets to know you as a couple and finds ways to capture those moments on camera. Shannon was very professional and punctual. Correspondence with her was very easy. And I’m very happy with the pictures that came out. She takes the extra time to edit them to perfection. Will definitely recommend Shannon Sasaki photography to everyone I know!
