I am originally from the little town of Greymouth, which is on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. I currently live in Geraldton, Western Australia.
I have always lived beside the ocean. Surfing has always been a passion of mine. It got to the stage where I would find myself standing on the beach with my camera and tripod more often than I would be in the water with my board.
As time went on, my photography went in a different direction. I began to focus more on people.
Most of my work now is mainly weddings.
My style is very relaxed as it is my job to make you feel comfortable infront of the camera.
As much as I will direct you during the day, it is all about yourselves enjoying, what is one of the best day of your life's.
My main aim is to bring that something different to the game every time.
I don't use overlays, nor do I use any genic presets as each and every wedding is 100% completely different from the next so I am creating a story from the day, you have plan and the colours you have personized.
Hanging out with me is just like having an extra person in the wedding party.
I am there to have just as much fun as you while capturing memories along the way.
Shaun was so easy to work with and made us all feel very comfortable. My husband isn't one for photos but Shaun worked so well with him and captured everything so perfectly! Rachael & Richard
From my first email to Shaun, he has been nothing short of amazing. His customer service, atmosphere, professionalism and all around personality is incredible! Kirstyn
Shaun made it so easy it didn't even feel like we were having our photos taken most of the time. Daniel & Charlene
We were lucky enough to book Shaun as our wedding photographer in March. He exceeded our already high expectations in so many ways! Jade
Oh my God, I am in love with every single photo! I started crying from the moment I opened the photo album and haven't really stopped since. I honestly feel l like I'm reliving that day all over again! Blake & Gabrielle
When Kyle and I became engaged I knew Shaun had to be our photographer; I even contacted him before locking in our wedding date to make sure he was available, because if not I would change the date! Kyle & Keira
He was professional and made sure that everyone was comfortable, including those that are camera shy. Kim & Linda Piggford
Shaun ensures the lead up to and the day of your wedding are as relaxed as can be, his bright and easygoing nature is one that will put any bride at ease. Sean & Kassie
Choosing Shaun to be our photographer on our wedding day was one of the best decisions we have ever made! Lorenzo & Brooke
He made us feel at home and at ease. And so much FUN! We never had to fake a smile because Shaun ensured that the day was full of laughter. Stephen & Emma
I don't know many people who do like to be photographed, especially for a whole day, and you make it so easy and enjoyable. We had many of our guests comment on what a great photographer we had, "he was good fun"! Tristan & Lauren Keys
Thank god for my sister Sarah, because when we announced our engagement her firsts words were not “oh my gosh congratulations you guys!” they were “Book Shaun Rose now”! Jess Royce
Two Days After Mitchell popped the question I emailed Shaun to check his availability for 2015 (very crucial to get in early with such a popular local photographer like Shaun). Kelsee Anick
It was an absolutely blessing to have you share your personality and talent with us on our wedding day. Our days special moments could not have been captured or created without your keen eye and amazing skill. Lee & Jared
