About the lady behind the lens:
Thanks for stopping by to learn more about our studio.
I'm Shirley Wedra, the Owner and Lead Photographer at Fort Mill Photography. Being a wedding photographer is a challenge for sure. There are time constraints, lighting challenges and a huge amount of pressure and oftentimes only one chance to "get it right".
Personally I love the challenge of doing my absolute best to walk away great images under adverse conditions. I love the fast paced environment, the different locations it takes me, working in all different types of lighting situations and capturing a moment that the client didn't get to see from your perspective or your artistic viewpoint. I also value the friendships that are formed and all the wonderful people I meet along the way. I enjoy getting to watch them start families and photograph those milestones as they grow. It's a win win for me and I absolutely LOVE what I do.
I certainly can't do it all on my own though. I have a couple of very talented local photographers who work with me on a permanent part time basis for all of our weddings that require two photographers and I am very blessed to have them.
We've photographed well over 400 weddings and numerous portrait sessions since the opening of our studio in 2003 and have become one of the most well-respected photography studios in the area. We are humbled when we say we couldn't be more proud of the extraordinary reputation that our studio has achieved in the past 15 years.
Our home office is located in Fort Mill, just 10 minutes from Ballantyne and 20 minutes from Charlotte.
We also have a 2nd location on a Farm in York, South Carolina where we shoot a lot of our outdoor/rustic portraits and elopements.
Available for travel.

Fort Mill Photography is outstanding. From the very first meeting we had with them, we found them to be incredibly professional. Shirley and Dave did our engagement pictures, bridal portraits, and wedding pictures, and we could not be happier with the results. I have received countless compliments on all of our photos and will cherish them for years to come. These photographers formed a relationship with our family throughout our year of engagement, and I feel confident that we will maintain our relationship in the future. I would absolutely recommend them to everyone.Sent on 11/03/2011
