nice to meet you.

hi there! i'm shelby. i have a bfa in drama from nyu's tisch school of the arts, minoring in child and adolescent mental health studies.

my style mimicks 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.

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.

get to know me better

what are people saying?

i truly have incredible clients, and am always overjoyed when they share kind words with me. my biggest joy in the work i do i bringing happiness to the lives of others. you can read some of the kindness i have received below, and even look at an entire article that one of my brides dedicated to me on her blog.

“shelby was quick on her feet, capturing the magic in the small moments, while playing with the light. as i look back on the photographs that she took of that day, i am amazed by how she chased the light throughout the day and into the evening, how she beautifully brought life into still photographs, and how she managed to capture all our family and friends in a way that reflects each person’s personality.”

“you just don’t have a professional ‘service’ with shelby-- you have a relationship. she takes the time to get to know and understanding you, what brings you joy and how best to share this with the world. her enthusiasm for capturing the moment made us so relaxed and as such, we now have memories that are a true reflection of who we are. thank you so much. shelby.”

“i had never done a photo shoot before and having done it, i wish i had done one a long time ago. shelby made things so easy and natural. my biggest concern was that i was going to look awkward and confused. she made it so fun and it definitely shows in the pictures! i felt comfortable and when i needed direction, shelby was right there... half the pictures i loved the most were the ones shelby just continued to snap as i tried to figure out what to do with myself.”

“shelby truly is one of a kind-- flexible, patient and professional through and through. not only was she able to capture our experience with impeccable details and quality, she was also a wonderful guest at our wedding. we hired a photographer and made a friend in the process! we can’t recommend and praise shelby highly enough.”

“where to begin... from the minute shelby and i started taking pictures, she instantly made me feel comfortable in front of the camera and, truly, in my own skin. for years, i’ve always wanted to take pictures in new york and she made that dream a reality this summer. she is such a genuine, sweet, and talented person. shelby is the epitome of a perfect photographer. she is flexible and works with any ideas you have. her pictures come out very professional and such great quality. thank you, shelby!”
