our story

Hey y'all! We're Shan and Kelly — thanks for being here! We're two good friends who share the same passion for events, creating joyful moments, and finding reasons (big or small) to celebrate.
 

We first met while planning cultural events and designing photo booth experiences for a local non-profit. Through this experience, we bonded over our similar backgrounds in photography, graphic design, and event planning.

 

It so happened that we started planning our weddings around the same time and both struggled to find photo booth vendors that offered unique backdrops and a modern aesthetic at an affordable rate. Overwhelmed by the number of package options, booth types, and overpriced gimmicky features, we joked about starting our own business.

 

A few months later, we started Wonderjoy.
