A Note From Schae
I am so happy and honoured you are taking the time to learn more about me and my work! I LOVE people and I love capturing every client's unique story. I don't specialize in just one area of photography, but rather in real authentic moments that capture who you are. I find these moments in weddings, couples, grad, and lifestyle photography. Sweet moments and authentic memories are everything and why I do what I do. For me, it is never just about taking photos- it is more about telling your story.
More about me? I love watching Netflix (my husband and I are huge TV geeks), walking to Starbucks for a tea, and cuddling my two rescue dogs! You can probably spot me at the movie theatre once a week or at Winners digging through all the racks of clothes! Rainy days make me smile, chai tea lattes are my jam, and there is something about online shopping that I can't live without. Watching the Bachelor takes up a lot of my time and I will finish this paragraph by saying that I am way too gullible and laugh a lot <3
If you are someone that loves to have fun, laugh, and wants their story told, I want to capture it in a way that makes you see how beautiful it really is.
