WEF 2021

why hire a private photographer?


your show photos are more than just the squarest knees over that oxer. like riding, it's about the moments in between the jumps: the pep talks at the in-gate, that chunky oxer, petting your pony as you come out of the ring, and the quiet and excited steps between the warm-up ring and the in-gate. that's where i come in handy! i'm there to capture it all, and to give you a snapshot of what showing is really about: the connection between you and your horse, and the joy of it all.

what are people saying?

“we couldn't have found a more talented, creative, hardworking and cheerful photographer. shelby captured the fun, grit and love that goes into horseshowing. she was a cheerleader ringside, always had a sincere smile on her face, and put the riders and horses at ease. we asked for a grouping of candid shots, and got back images that showed the strong connection between horse and rider, the commitment of the trainers and the athleticism of our equine partners. she is our go-to!”
