Photographs are meant to be printed, displayed, and preserved. 

Technology will become obsolete, and cannot be passed down from generation to generation.

This is why I believe in the importance of high-quality printed products.


Whether you've hired me for your wedding or to document your family, I include album or print credits as an inherent part of every photography experience I provide.

Choosing the right company to develop your photographs requires the same thought and intention that went into choosing your photographer.


And the very best choice when it comes to printing your images is to work with your photographer. 


My photographs look their best when developed by the companies I have chosen to work with because I worked closely with my labs to make sure of this.


Printing photos that will live on your walls for decades, and having a custom album that will not fade, warp or fall apart requires some upfront investment.


These products are a lifetime investment.

An album is a thoughtful narrative of your entire wedding day presented in a very tangible way.


It is something to hold in your hands while you sit on the couch with your kids and re-tell the events of your wedding day. Your kids will laugh at the hairstyles and marvel at how young you were.

An album is also the very best way to archive your wedding photographs. Digital files are great but technology is constantly changing and who knows what it will be like thirty years from now.

Each album designed and delivered by Shanon-May Photography is custom and one of kind, just for you. Our albums are the highest quality and made to last.

We just received the wedding album. It looks really good! Annie and I went through it page by page, and we relived that day by looking at each moment you captured. I imagine myself opening this book and telling our kids and grandkids the stories of our wedding.

Thank you so much for your hard work.

A lot of collaboration and time goes into creating a custom album design for you. Learn about the process here. 

Pick your favourite photos

After you've received your wedding gallery, I'll ask you to pick your favourite photos, which will be what the overall design and narative will be based on. I'll ask you complete this within two (2) weeks so that we can get to work on the design before too much time passes.

First Draft of Album Design

When I've recieved your image selections I'll get to work on the first draft of your wedding album. At this time I will add images to the design in order to create a thoughtful narrative of your wedding day.

Design Review

I'll create the first design draft and send it to you via my online proofing system for your review. At this time you can request changes to the photos, swapping out any images you don't love in the design. You have up to two opportunites to review the design and request changes before I will ask for your final approval.

Design Approved!

When you have approved the design, I will retouch any portraits that require additional touch ups for hair and noticable blemishes and then send the ready-to-print design to my album company.

We Wait!

All albums are handmade so it will be about a month after I submit the designs before your album will be ready to ship. I will keep you updated about the progress on your wedding album while it's being made. When completed, the album is sent to me first so I can check it over and make sure it meets my standards.

It's Your's to Cherish

The final step in the album design process is simple. You receive it and cherish it, forever. Care instructions will be provided so that it can be preserved for generations.


"An image is only a photograph after it's been printed."

I offer my couples high-quality print options for printing their wedding photos because where you print your photos is just as important as the photos themselves.

I work with the best print lab in Canada. All print products offered are made using the highest quality materials. The papers will not yellow or fade and are thicker than any retail print options. Their inks are rich and a perfect match for the colour work in my images.

Your printed photographs will look their best when printed through my print lab because my camera equipment is set up to match their printing equipment


Best of all, you won't have to worry about uploading your photos to a third-party website. All your photos are automatically available from your gallery in the online shop.

See below to learn about the products available through your online gallery.
