Shelby was amazing to work with. She met with me before the wedding and got us all organized and came with ideas for unique photo's I hadn't even considered taking. Everyone who has seen our pictures has been blown away by how awesome they turned out!Sent on 02/21/2018

A true artist and a wonderful person!
We can't say enough good things about Shelby - she was the first vendor we hired and was the best decision we made for our wedding. She was so easy to work with for both our engagement and wedding photos and keeps you relaxed and laughing. None of her photos feel posed - it really is a genuine expression of love. We especially loved the warm and cozy feel that her photos have, especially with the trend of overexposed-looking photos that are popular right now for weddings, it was important to have someone who has her own style. If you hire Shelby, you will not be disappointed!Sent on 09/08/2019

Honestly I don't even need to write a review for Shelby's work...the photos speak for themselves. However, it was the absolutely BEST working with her. Trust me, I did my research. She was the 50th, yes 50th, wedding photographer I reached out to and I think that speaks enough about her!Sent on 07/11/2019
Not only did we hit it off right away, but I feel like I have found a forever friend in her. The pictures, the experience, the extras she gave us after the wedding? It was all perfect. Even today, more than 6 months after the wedding, I need her help with touching up a photo or editing a little something here or there, she is 100% willing to help.
If you have the chance to work with her, I HIGHLY suggest it. You will be very happy with the end results!
I love working with Shelby of Shelby Chari Photography, she offers other professionals (working with her on the big day) her client's timeline and helps everyone stay on time. I have worked on many weddings and other assignments with Shelby, I would recommend her to everyone!
