About

$2,375 Most Popular Price

hey you! thanks for dropping by. my name is shelby, and i am a queer artist and manhattan based photographer who specializes in weddings + equine portraiture. my priority as a photographer is developing a personal relationship with each and every one of my clients (two or four legged). your special moments are their most pure when you are comfortable and ready to just have fun, and i am here to create that joyful space.

with me, you get it all: cheerleader, planner, list keeper, and leader. your wedding day is huge with billions of details. i am a self-described enthusiastic fly-on-the-wall. i am right there when groups need to be organized and shots need to be set up, but dissolve into the background for intimate moments and lively dancing. it's your day to relax, have fun, and laugh... and it's my job to capture it all.

my style mimics the way film captures light, color, and depth, though i do shoot digitally. i believe in love in every form, and i celebrate them all. we all deserve to love and be loved in return, whether it be by our partner, pony, or pup. the most important thing to me when i’m working with anyone is that the people and animals in front of my camera are comfortable and able to just be themselves. i’ve become an expert at minimizing the presence of the camera, which gives you the space to relax and enjoy our time together. most of the people i meet lead with, “i’m really awkward.” awkward is good and fun and beautiful! the more present you are able to be, and the more comfortable you become with discomfort, the more you will shine through the camera. i believe in meeting halfway to achieve the same goal: capturing a relationship, love, and life.

    Shelby is clearly talented, communicative, and professional

    We hired Shelby for our wedding in Brooklyn and undoubtedly made the best choice for photographer. She was professional, communicative, and obviously talented (her work speaks for itself!)

    We chose one of her higher packages that included a second photographer so we could have our groomsmen and bridesmaids both photographed getting ready at separate locations. Throughout the event, she was like a fly on the wall, and captured so many amazing moments without us even taking notice. When our guests engaged with her, she was fun and interactive.

    In the end, her photos somehow turned out better than we expected, clearly illustrating her talent and attention to detail.

    We have and would highly recommend Shelby to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

    Absolutely Priceless

    Shelby is incredibly easygoing and flexible, with a genuine focus on making your day true to you. During our consultation in the weeks before the ceremony, it was evident that we would be comfortable in front of the camera with her in charge. Aside from asking for a handful of specific family shots, we gave her full creative control of the day, and I can’t put into words how beautifully her vision came to life. Looking through her portfolio ahead of time, I admittedly expected the photos with my husband and family to be gorgeous given her clear editing and shooting talent. Needless to say, my expectations were very high for the full album. As we opened our album for the first time, we were absolutely blown away by her ability to capture the emotions of our guests during the ceremony. The photo of my mom tearing up, my best friend grinning ear-to-ear while holding my bouquet, and the sweet soft smile of my father-in-law leaning in closer to hear our vows better are all moments that I didn’t get to experience during the ceremony, but will now forever be a part of that day for me. Through photos, she managed to make an already perfect day full of even more joy and emotion. What she provided for us was absolutely priceless and I will be searching for new moments for her to capture in the future.

    Shelby is the best!

    It should be obvious to anyone looking at Shelby's work that her pictures are fantastic :)

    I planned to propose to my partner back in March 2020. I had been talking with Shelby pre-pandemic and I was so excited. COVID hit, delayed ring production, we went into lockdown, etc. etc. By the time I was ready to propose a few months later Shelby was out of state for a bit, but referred me to her photographer friend for us to work with (whom I went with for the proposal).

    I did not end up working Shelby, but she was so fantastic along every step of the way I felt the need to write a review. I did not want to tell friends or really any family ahead of time, so it was so fun to text and plan with her along the way. She was like a secret cheerleader for the proposal. Even though she was not our photographer, she still texted to check in before and after the proposal to wish me luck, and send her congratulations. She is all around a wonderful person, planner and photographer and I would recommend her without a doubt.

    Shelby Phillips Photography's reply:

    Megan! It was seriously a pleasure being your secret cheerleader, and even though I was stuck quarantining out of state, I was still thrilled to be able to check in the day of. CONGRATS!
