"Shelby was amazing to work with! She was so energetic, engaging and fun! She made being in front of a camera so easy and comfortable. We loved our engagement pictures, and can’t wait for her to capture our wedding!"


My philosophy is to capture moments that mean the most. Documenting you and your loves laughter, smiles, embraces and energy is what I strive to do every day. Timeless memories you can look back on for years and still love. The smile at me photos are great, and don't worry we will do those but I crave the moments where my couples/families are just emerged in their own chaos. Running around, jumping on each- other, dancing with each-other or just holding hands looking at each-other are the moments I love to capture for my couples the most! What i have curated in my wedding photography style is so special to me, I have a directive approach, I am very hands on with my couples... I love capturing the candid, playful moments with a mix of modern + editorial. Picking your photographer is more than just loving their work. It is so important to choose someone whose style and aesthetics match your wedding theme but also someone who has an energy that makes you feel confident and comfortable!
