Your

Kind words

I have been truly lucky to work with such great people, and nothing makes me happier than their reactions and kind words once their photos have been delivered. Below are the testimonials I have received for my services in full and completely unedited. For weddings/engagements which I have blogged, you can click the couples' names to view their images!

Victoria & Rob: "Shelby did a really fantastic job photographing our wedding and truly did capture the essence of our day. We can't stop looking at the photos (all 750+ of them!!) with big smiles on our faces and reliving every moment. Shelby's style of photography - very natural and unobtrusive - suited us perfectly. She's also a lovely, friendly and relaxed person and clearly absolutely loves what she does, and she's brilliant at it! Thank you so much Shelby! Victoria & Rob x"

Hanna & Jacob: "Shelby documented our wedding day perfectly catching unpredictable moments so well. Her candid photography caught all the fun, laughter and energy from the wedding which is exactly what we asked for. Her pictures of the venue and everyone in it are gorgeous and I'm not sure how she did it because she was completely unobtrusive! We will cherish the pictures forever, thank you Shelby."

Ross & Rhia: Shelby provided an excellent service on our wedding day 1st October this year (as well as our engagement shoot on the 30th July). She got so many photos without people even realising she was taking them! She has eye for detail which gets the most amazing shots. She is also such a friendly likeable person which made us feel at ease and nothing was too much to ask. Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly.

Alice & Theo: "We are so glad we chose Shelby to capture our wedding day! Shelby beautifully captured tiny, special details from the day. Our gorgeously packaged photographs were delivered within 3 weeks of the wedding and we are so impressed with Shelby's professionalism, calmness and attentive communication with us. Thank you, Shelby! Alice and Theo"

Clare & Kevin: "We would highly recommend Shelby! After searching for a wedding photographer (and there are loads) I came across Shelby and we both loved her style of photography. On our wedding day Shelby did a fab job of capturing our day and the majority of the time you wouldn't even know she was there. Our guests commented on how lovely Shelby was. We also received our photos in the post in a lovely box and we were amazed at how many of the photos we loved, there were so many!! Our day was captured perfectly and we have lots of photos to look back on."

Lottie & Sammy: "We had Shelby for our wedding in August, you wouldn't even have noticed she was there. She was absolutely amazing. Captured the whole day so well. The photos are brilliant we couldn't have asked for anything more. It was such a beautiful day and we are glad we had Shelby there to capture and experience with us. Thank you xxx"

The Smith Family (Portrait shoot): "Had a fantastic day in Knole Park last weekend with Shelby there to capture some amazing photos for us! Really lovely to get some natural family pictures of us all and we love every single one! Normally our daughter won't smile in front of the camera but Shelby just slipped into the background and captured her natural smile which is so much more precious anyway! She had great fun running around the park and it's so nice to have captured those memories! Now we just have to decide which ones to print as we're spoilt for choice!! Thanks again Shelby, we are truly grateful!"

-

Mark & Dan: "After looking for a while for photographers for our wedding, we chose Shelby because we liked her style. We didn't want fussy, posed photos and Shelby captured our day perfectly. When our 400 pictures arrived in a lovely package we can honestly say we didn't know most of them were being taken. If you want someone to capture the moment and not be in your face then Shelby is the one for you. Very accommodating, very reasonable price and did exactly what we wanted. We LOVE our pictures and can't thank you enough. Thanks Shelby you made us very happy indeed! x"

-

Radha & Kane (Engagement Shoot): Thank you very much for your time Shelby! We booked Shelby for our wedding and had an engagement shoot included which was last weekend. Shelby was great in recommending beautiful settings for the engagement shoot, even checking the weather forecast and when I explained I needed the pics asap she worked to turn them around in 48 hours! She was great at putting us at ease and got some really beautiful photos that were exactly what we wanted. And now we can't wait for Shelby to snap our actual wedding day and are very much looking forward to working with Shelby again! Thanks again!

-

Laura & Sam: "We booked Shelby for our wedding photographer in a bit of a last minute panic, and I am so happy we did :) She's AMAZING, she was really unobtrusive in the best possible way, giving us direction when we needed it and making us feel so comfortable. I am so in love with all the photos from our day, she really captured the atmosphere of the wedding perfectly! Also, recieving all the photos on a USB is brilliant, we're having such trouble trying to decide which ones to print out, they're all so great!! Super long review i know, but we're just so over the moon! Couldn't recommend Shelby more! xxx"

Ebony & Tom: "Shelby Ellis is a talented, creative photographer who is both relaxed and professional. She documented our wedding day in June 2016. We first met Shelby a few weeks before the wedding. We looked at the church together and she also followed us in her car to the nearby reception venue. Shelby was relaxed and easy to get on with and listened carefully to what we wanted.

On the big day, Shelby spent a long time with us, from 9am to around 10pm taking photos all the while. She took some excellent photos, she has an eye for a good picture and was able to snap us with some great backdrops. As well as completing the staged shots we asked her for, she also managed to get a lot of photos without being noticed doing so by us or our guests. We particularly noticed this skill when reflecting on the pictures she took of the ceremony.

We were very happy with the end result, when we received in the post a well presented end product. She sent us some hard copies of the photos in a wooden box with a stylish wooden data stick to match, which contained all of the photos from the day. We really felt we got good value for money and that she had done justice to our special day."
