HEY, I’M SHELBY
It’s great to meet you.
So, a little about me. I live in Kent with my husband Andy and our fur-baby Lola, and things I love include Indian food and binge-watching tv shows!
I have been passionate about photography since I was little – which is quite something for me, as I’m nearly 6ft tall! They say if you do something you love as your job, you’ll never work another day in your life – and this really is how I feel about capturing weddings.
I also LOVE to travel and there are so many places in the world I really want to visit. The next few on my list are: Amalfi Coast, Mykonos, Iceland and the Maldives – but it’ll be a while before I get round to seeing them all!
I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph destination weddings in France, Italy, Greece and the Channel Islands but I would absolutely love some more – so if you’re marrying abroad, please get in touch!
Some Things You Should Know
Found my passion
I was lucky enough to attend a secondary school which had its own Photography department – even a dark room for film processing. I was already an Art student, but it was here that I first found my passion for photography.
After achieving A*/A’s in my Photography qualifications, I went to University for the Creative Arts (UCA) for a year and earned a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design, specialising in Photomedia.
Started my business
Having spent two seasons second shooting for other photographers to gain experience and images for my portfolio, I finally started offering my own services to couples.
I photographed two weddings for friends and slowly started getting enquiries.
Took things international
This was a big year for me and my business – I was booked to photograph my first ever destination wedding!
An intimate celebration in a beautiful chateau in the South of France. It was a huge learning curve for me, but a great experience. I’ve had the ‘destination wedding’ bug ever since!
This was a huge year for me and my business, as I was FINALLY able to hand in my notice at my full-time office job and pursue my photography business dreams.
It’s been a wild ride for sure, but still going strong to this day. The best decision I ever made!
As a wedding photographer, I am committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all of my clients, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, or any other aspect of their identity. I believe that diversity is a beautiful and essential part of the human experience, and I celebrate it in all of its forms.
I recognise that weddings are a celebration of love and commitment, and I am honoured to be a part of capturing those special moments for my clients. I strive to create an environment where all of my clients feel comfortable and valued, and where they can express their love freely and without fear of discrimination or prejudice.
I understand that every wedding is unique and that each couple has their own story to tell – in fact, it’s the exact reason why I love what I do.
I am dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusivity in all of my work, and I am always looking for opportunities to expand my knowledge and understanding of different cultures and perspectives.
I reject all forms of discrimination and bigotry, and I will not tolerate any behaviour or language that is offensive, discriminatory, or harmful to my clients. I am committed to treating all my clients with respect and dignity, and to providing them with the highest level of professional service.
I believe that everyone deserves to have their love story captured in a beautiful and authentic way, and I am honoured to be a part of that process. I welcome all clients with open arms and look forward to working with individuals from all walks of life.
love, Shelby x
YEAH, THAT’S ME.
Tell me you love your job without telling me you love your job… (Yes, that is me – borrowing my photographer’s camera on my own wedding day!)
