I'm Shalae

A lover of light and fashion, with a gift for bringing a smile to all. Love getting dressed up for a night out, but a homebody at heart always down to curl up on the couch with popcorn and a good movie. My suitcase is always ready for an adventure to destinations both near and far, set to capture every joyful memory from your special day, because you deserve it.
