Shelly was so fun to work with! After our initial meeting I knew she'd be a great choice for our wedding day. She is personable, warm and honestly it felt as though she was an old friend. If we had to do it all over again, I'd choose Shelly in a heartbeat. She took so many photos and the turn around in having them in my possession was INCREDIBLE-I had several people ask HOW do you already have your wedding photos! So many people have commented on what a great job she did and several of my friends who are now engaged have asked for her information. Shelly, I so hope we can work together again in the future! You are so wonderful at what you do, thank you for everything!Sent on 11/22/2017

Shelly Shimon took proposal photos for my fiancé and I this past February. My fiancé coordinated the whole experience as a surprise, and I cherish the photos we received from Shelly. She did a wonderful job coordinating the timing, location, and details of the proposal with my fiancé. We received the photos very quickly, and they turned out beautifully. Thank you, Shelly!

I am someone who takes lots of photos, but never prints or does anything with them. Knowing the person that I am, I was having a hard time buying into the "You must invest in a good photographer" or the "photos will be your only memories after the day is over". Well you guys as much as I hate to admit it, it's true. When I first met with Shelly three things popped into my head- She really listened to what I wanted, her passion comes through in her work, and I wanted to be her friend. I knew I could trust her to capture not only the day’s events, but the love Matt and I have for one another and this great city. Our pictures are filled with head tilts, smirks, skyscrapers, and moments I will never forget because Shelly captured them. I can honestly say I am able to relive the day thanks to Shelly, and the emotions I feel with every flip of our pictures can attest to that. So, yes I’d recommend anyone to work with Shelly. Invest in her because she will invest in you tenfold. She will take your 9pm phone call 3 days before your wedding because you are freaking out about your first look location, or help you plan your engagement route to ensure that she captures your two greatest loves (Chicago & your future husband) because she took the time to listen to how important it was to you. There is a lot of talent out there, but trust me when I say on this special day you want a photographer who will be there just for you. Someone who is just as anxious and excited as you are to be married. You want someone like Shelly.Sent on 02/02/2018
