    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.

    We had a great experience with Shelly last week for our engagement photos, and the sneak peeks are fantastic. Definitely looking forward to seeing everything! Shelly has a great eye, wonderfully fun personality, and is extremely responsive (despite my last min requests and pleas for outfit advice). She put both of us at ease, and even my fiance (who hates posing for pics) had a great time. Highly recommend!
