Shelby Ellis Photography kent wedding photographer and destination wedding photographer holding a camera

Hi, I’m Shelby


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 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!
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. (Yes, that is me on my wedding day wearing my photographer's harness and taking pictures! Once a photographer...)

So great to meet you!

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 honored 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.

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
