    The Best Photographer Ever!!!!

    Working with Shelby from Dear Hear Films & Portraits was the best decision we made for our wedding. Shelby actually captured our surprise proposal and we worked with her from then through our wedding day. Beyond being incredible talented, she is patient, friendly, professional, organized and overall a dream vendor to work with. It stormed on our wedding day and Shelby was so quick to take action, listening to what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go to take photos, and she clearly gave direction and orders to our guests so we can capture photos in a timely manner. We couldn't recommend her enough!!

Team

Shelby Hunter
Shelby Hunter
Photographer & Cinematographer

I've been shooting photo and video since I was old enough to pick up a camera. In college, I started my business and shot three weddings that year. I realized I LOVE hearing people's stories, everything from how they met to what they enjoy doing together to what their favorite things about each other are.

I believe people need to be passionate about their work and this is especially true when it comes to creative industries. I genuinely love what I do and it shows through my photos and films. I want to get to know my couples so their personalities can shine through what I do.
