Bridal Hair Stylist and Makeup Services, Toronto, Vancouver
Shannon is one of Fancy Face Inc.’s senior hairstylists and a favourite amongst many of our clients! She discovered her passion for hairstyling at an early age, spending hours braiding and roller setting all her girlfriends’ hair. She grew up in New York and worked for ten years behind the chair in an upscale salon. Even though she loved the salon setting, she realized that bridal always held a special place in her heart and eventually decided to specialize in bridal and special events. When she came to Toronto 5 years ago, she trained at Toni & Guy and Aveda Academy. Her work has been featured in editorial spreads and published in Elegant Wedding Magazine.

What do you love about being a wedding photographer?
Not many professions can bare witness to the pure emotion that two people share on their wedding day. We get to be a part of these moments on a regular basis – how lucky are we! This isn’t just a a job for us, this is who we are and what we love to do! Throughout our years we have had the privilege of shooting various styles of photography, yet our hearts continue to lean towards the fine art of weddings.
Most memorable moment of your career?
When we think of a memorable moment in our career we can both agree that it would have to be the wedding in Germany. Under normal circumstances we get to establish a relationship with our clients prior to their wedding day. Imagine going half way across the world to shoot a wedding, without ever speaking to each other. There is something so magical about meeting a couple for the first time and having that connection instantly, and that’s exactly what happened when we first met!
What sets you apart from other wedding photography companies?
Being a Boutique Studio sets us apart from other companies because we give our clients a personal experience where they deal with us directly! We take great pride in our work, and to ensure that the quality is there we limit the amount of weddings we take per year. Also, all the editing, album designs, emails & calls are always done by us.
Who would your dream client be?
Our dream client would definitely be Gabrielle Bonheur (Coco Chanel)! Why you ask? Simply because we find her to be an extraordinary woman who was a visionary.
