    Look no further...Shelly and Patrick are not only exceptional photographers through their expertise and professionality, but they are incredible human beings. Other than your spouse, you spend the most time with your photographer on your wedding day- Shelly was so joyful, flexible, and made us feel so special on our day. Shelly went above and beyond throughout the whole process, we had a pre-wedding phone call where she literally took the ideas in my head made them into an organized event timeline and scouted my venue so that she could capture all that it had to offer. Shelly made the most of our time and was able to get the attention of our bridal party, families, and little ones so that we could spend the most time celebrating and not posing for photos. I am so excited by our sneak peek photos and can’t wait to see the rest. She has an absolute incredible eye and is so fun. There are a lot of great photographers out there, but truly feel that Shelly is the best.

    Shelly Pate Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review us Maria!! We LOVED being a part of you and Patrick's special day and getting to know you two! We still cannot get over how incredible everything was and are just gushing over the photos = )

    Highly recommend

    We had a wonderful experience working with Shelly. She is an incredibly talented artist and we absolutely treasure the photos we've gotten from her so far. Her calm demeanor, positive personality, and quick thinking were such helpful additions to our wedding day. Shelly genuinely got to know my husband and I and because of this she was able to cater to our preferences and needs. She was extremely responsive and easy to reach throughout the whole planning process. Her packages are very reasonable (and really good value for the level of quality and service she provides). We just had so much fun taking pictures with her! She was also very kind to and good with my 5 year old daughter, who was obviously a very important part of the day. Would work with Shelly again in a heartbeat!
