we honestly don’t think we could recommend shelby enough! we decided to elope in new york very last minute and so as the day approached were worried that we might have ended up without a photographer at all. after some last minute searching we found shelby’s website and were so taken by how stunning, professional and yet natural her photos were. having never had any couples photos together we were completely unprepared, but shelby’s warm and friendly personality relaxed us, and her experience and knowledge in both photography and the area led us to some beautiful shots, capturing the day and our personalities perfectly. on the day we tied the knot, there was a considerable amount of snow, which meant some gorgeous pictures but also that visiting other sites in the city would have been cold and miserable. shelby was kind enough to go out of her way to meet us again a few days later so that we got the best photos possible – the absolute best of both worlds! shelby really surpassed any expectations we had by miles! it is over a month later and we are still getting compliments on all of our stunning photos. we have absolutely no regrets booking with shelby, and would 100% recommend her, regardless of the occasion! if ever we need a photographer in the new york area, we know exactly who to contact!

when i first saw shelby’s work, i knew she was “the one”. her artistry was what i was looking for: her shots are full of emotion and let you “feel” by just looking at them.
fast forward to a month after the wedding and i still swoon every time i look at every photo. shelby is an intuitive artist that exudes incredible talent and passion. we hope to hire her again for future family milestones!

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.

you just don’t have a professional ‘service’ situation 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.

shelby was so great! she responds in a timely manner and is very professional. she was helpful in telling us the flow of marrying at the marriage bureau and took us to the best spots afterwards for amazing photos! we are so happy with her work and would highly recommend!

shelby was absolutely great! she’s experienced, easy to communicate with, responded quickly to all our questions, and easy going in all things you need during your wedding. we’re saving her information for our baby shower, anniversary photos, and family photos. having my dog present at our wedding was very important and the photos of her melted my heart. we look at the photos every day since receiving them and they somehow takes us right back to our magical day. we are truly thankful for her.

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 being 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 to tell me what to do and how to change it up. 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. she really can capture all the photos that are “right there” and all the ones that are seemingly not. i had a great experience and i would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for amazing photos for any occasion.

right from our first meeting, shelby ‘got’ us and exactly the sort of photography we were after for our wedding. she was friendly and fun, and put all of our guests at ease too, and we love all the photos. not only is shelby incredibly good at what she does, she’s super talented – in short, everything you could wish for in photographers and highly recommended!

from the moment i got a quote from shelby i felt confident that i could rely on her as the photographer for my wedding. she is so lovely and really makes sure she understands what you are expecting from her on the day. through our the night, shelby was so easy to work with and nothing was too difficult or complicated for her. she really caught the special moments on the night. i would highly recommend her as a photographer.

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. i highly recommend her for senior pictures or any kind in that matter. i guarantee that you will love working with shelby as much as i did!

shelby was fantastic and made me, my fiancé, and my dog feel so comfortable. we get so many compliments on the photos all the time. not only was her work amazing, but the turn around time was so fast! definitely recommend her to everyone.

my fiancé and i had a wonderful experience shooting our engagement photos with shelby! she was super relaxed and professional which made the whole experience really fun. she was open to listening to our ideas and also came prepared with several of her own. we received our proofs very quickly and shelby was more than accommodating with any edits that we wanted (which ended up being none because her work was incredible)! many of my friends have asked me who we used for our pictures and i wholeheartedly recommend shelby. many people end up waiting months to actually see the pictures or they feel uncomfortable while getting them taken. this was not the case with shelby at all, she had us laughing and acting like ourselves which made our pictures look amazing!

shelby is an incredibly professional and talented photographer. she worked with me beforehand in order to style the shoot in completion and was extremely creative in the versatile backdrops and frames she chose. she has an amazing eye and is excellent at helping her model feel comfortable. in addition, she had fully edited the shoot in as little as 2-3 days afterwards. i would absolutely recommend shelby to any client looking for headshots, portraits, editorial photos, or more.

best photographer i’ve worked with. very fun and encouraging to be around. makes photo shoots not stressful at all. i recommend her to everyone! love her!

shelby is extremely passionate about her work as a photographer, and it shows in everything she does for you. during our shoot, not only did she prioritize my comfort but it was also charmingly clear that she wanted the photos to satisfy me as much as i did. and they didn’t just satisfy me, they so far exceeded my expectations that i am positive i will i never have to look for another photographer again. shelby makes you look and feel great; the pictures she took of me are now my all time favorites. she really is so easy to get along with and be around, i cannot wait to work with her again!

my husband and i needed someone who is experienced in working with dogs in unusual situations. shelby was very patient from start to finish. she was communicative in explaining the process, answered our questions timely, and was punctual in delivering the deliverables. shelby’s ideas produced great staged and candid poses, her photo editing skills generated beautiful pictures. shelby was very pleasant and a joy to work with. we love the pictures shelby taken of us.
