Our Story

 

Let us introduce ourselves. We are Shaun and Stephanie Scade. We are a husband and wife team. We have been married for 6 years and have 2 wonderfully crazy children, Neko and Ari. As much as we love photography, these two are the most important parts of our lives. We love to do everything as a family.

Adventures are simply better when you have someone to share them with. 

 

 

Shaun

self-proclaimed food, music and tech nerd

Hey there! We are more than just our occupation. First and foremost, I am a husband and a father. But beyond my family, I am a consumer of all things food. I am always on the hunt for a new restaurant, the perfect burger, or something I have never tried before. I am a bit of a Bourbon snob and I love me some Scotch. Tea is my thing, but I have taught myself to like Americanos very recently. 

I am constantly reading books and graphic novels, and I am a fan of the audiobook. Music is one of my biggest passions; creating playlists and researching the next big thing always brings a smile to my face. I also teach Photographic Technology full-time at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) helping train the next generation of photographers.

Founder, Grandfather, and Live music AFICIONADO

I started Scade Photography nearly 40 years ago now. A lot has changed in the past 4 decades, but the true essence of photography remains. You can usually find me at your local live music establishment enjoying a beverage and some tunes. Blues, open mic nights, jam sessions, house concerts, I love them all. I am Scotch guy, but not too peaty. When I am at home, the Food Network or the Golf Channel are always on. I enjoy hosting small dinner parties, and large social gatherings. And I am always looking for a round of golf, even when its snowing outside I have my weekly indoor round. 

I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren so family is huge for me. I take every opportunity I can to see Neko, Ari, and Daelen. The last couple of years I have been working at NAIT and its been great helping shape tomorrows photographers. 

Steph

Bread Making supermom and yoga enthusiast

I am 100% one of those ‘do all the things’ type of people. Since becoming a momma, I’ve discovered that it is harder to 'do all the things' though. It requires extra focus to make things happen. But it's often worth the work.

Recently I discovered the joy of baking sourdough bread. It allows me to play in the kitchen without being 100% precise with the measurements. It has also given me a chance to bring people together with some bread and butter. I also have taken to yoga and I love the way it helps me focus in the mornings. The little ones love to help out and get in the way, but they have been amazing little teachers for me in every sense of the word. I hope to take my yoga a bit further and practice some more meditation as well.

Being creative is a part of almost everything we do together as a family. Whether it's cooking, playing, crafting, or photographing. I never really realized how important that was to me until I’d met Shaun. I'm thankful every day we have each other on this journey.
