About Michelle Elyse Photography

Hey there, Shelley here! I'm a free-spirited woman who loves incorporating a little bit of glamour into my life wherever I can. I believe in kindness and honesty and living life to the fullest. Flowers and laughter, and sweet, quiet moments are my favorite. I think the way which I capture things in photographs is very much an extension of who I am.

While I’ve lived in Raleigh for over the past 9 years, I’ve had the amazing fortune to travel all over the world photographing weddings. I love photographing weddings both big and small, urban or outdoors, What I love so much about weddings are that each one is unique and exciting in its own way!

As far as photography style goes, I love to keep things as genuine to you as possible. Rather than cookie-cutter poses, I like to guide couples to interact, connect, and have fun. Most of the time, I want you to forget you’re even being photographed. That’s my ticket to capturing the gorgeous, real you! I love natural light, and honest, natural moments. When you look back on your wedding photos each anniversary, I want you not only to see the beauty of the flowers, your dress, and the cake you chose- I want you to relive the sweet memories that you shared with each other, your family and friends! That is what is really important to me.

If you’d like more information about me, or are interested in having me photograph your beautiful wedding memories, please don't hesitate to contact me! I look forward to getting to know you and hearing ALL about your love story!

Shelley

    Hartman Outdoor Photography was the best decision my husband and I made! Shelley is beyond accommodating, flexible, professional, warm, and prompt. There is not a single photo that my husband and I are not in love with; every photo more beautiful than the next. We can not be more pleased with the quality of Shelley's work - we relive our wedding day each time we look at the pictures. Thank you Shelley - we look forward to working with you in the future!
