Oh hey, you found me!

Your wedding (or session) day has arrived. You’ve curated the details from your makeup, jewelry, to his tie color. You’ve anxiously awaited for this day to arrive to be able to share these moments with family and to cherish them forever. You slip on your shoes and head out the door. 

This is where I come in. Hi there! I’m Shelby! Your professional third wheel, adventure seeker, and friend. From your initial inquiry I will closely work with you to make sure that your dream vision comes to life. We will work together to plan locations, outfits, and whatever other advice you may need. There is no need to be anxious and worried about your session! I will be there to help you throughout the entire process while also making a new friend along the way. 

I am constantly eating dessert treats whenever available and you’ll usually find me drinking Blueberry Moscato cozied up in bed in my oversized sweatshirt. I currently live in West Lafayette Indiana, but frequently visit home in Indianapolis to see my black lab Murphy. I absolutely love to travel and I am usually always planning my next getaway. Volunteering and non profits also have a large part of my heart. That’s why when you book a session with me, an automatic 10% of the sale goes towards a charity close to my heart at the end of the year. 

I travel because I want to see the world and everything it has to offer, but I also want to find the most beautiful locations for you along the way! This gorgeous earth needs to be seen in all of its beauty and so does your love. I don’t do photography just to add to my portfolio, I believe everyone should have stunning pictures of themselves to look back on forever. The best moments are the ones unposed and the unplanned. Seeing how happy couples can be during their sessions is what makes me want to continue doing the best job on the planet. Whether it be an engagement session in a field or an adventurous elopement in Big Sur, I will be there with my camera, right along side you, to have the best time of your life. 

I can’t wait to talk to you soon,
