We worked with Shelby for both our engagement photos in the White Mountains as well as our elopement in Acadia National Park. Shelby was knowledgeable and helpful in providing insight/planning for both of these occasions! She had great suggestions when it came to locations and timeline to ensure we got as many shots/locations within the amount of time we had booked. She makes being in front of the camera natural and really makes you feel like your authentic self. We greatly appreciated how communicative she was and how quickly we received “sneak peek” photos from each session! We will cherish these memories for a lifetime! We would HIGHLY recommend Shelby to any couple searching for beautiful, fun, authentic and natural photographs to document their most important life events.

BOOK SHELBY!!! We used Shelby for our engagement photos, our small church wedding photos and our big Vermont wedding. She was the absolutely greatest for all three event we had. Our photos all came out so beautiful and even in all the different circumstances the photos were perfect. Not only were the photos wonderful, but she made every aspect so easy and comfortable. My husband does not love getting pictures taken and Shelby made it so easy, natural and comfortable. Her vibe is very calming and natural and she makes you feel such at ease while taking your photos. She captures your energy and spirit in such a unique way and her edits just make the photos even that much better. For any photo needs you have, please book Shelby. You will never regret it.

We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have had such a stellar team of vendors for our wedding, and among them, Shelby truly stood out as a gem. Our wedding day, which took place on October 21st, was accompanied by relentless rain, but Shelby's remarkable professionalism and dedication shone through. One of the aspects we valued most about Shelby's photography style was her ability to capture candid, authentic moments as they unfolded, rather than relying solely on posed shots. This approach allowed us to relive the genuine emotions and joy of our special day. We are forever grateful for the beautiful memories she helped us create and for her unwavering dedication to her craft. Choosing Shelby as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a talented, thoughtful, and genuinely caring photographer for their special day!!

If you’re thinking or debating about hiring Shelby as your photographer, cut it out and put your deposit down. My husband have done a slew of sessions with Shelby and each time they come out incredible. She recently photographed our wedding, which was outdoors in the blistering cold. Shelby was there to capture all of the moments and then some, never letting the weather phase her and making us feel like it was no problem! They way she composed our photos was incredible and I’m so happy we decided to book with her because these are definitely photos I’ll cherish forever. I have zero regrets hiring Shelby, she makes you feel confident and comfortable and the finished product is beyond perfect.

We found Shelby on Instagram and fell in love with her photos. She really knew how to capture the love one another have. Upon meeting Shelby for our engagement session, we learned that she was so down to earth and sweet it made us both feel comfortable to be ourselves in front of the camera. After getting our engagement session back I was absolutely blown away. Leading up to our wedding day nerves are at an all time high but when Shelby arrived everything went so smoothly, she made sure we were on schedule with our photos so we didn’t miss anything. My photos were absolutely amazing and she helped made me feel like the most beautiful bride. I HIGHLY recommend Shelby she is truly so talented.
