Hi Shelly, tell us a little about what you do! I shoot people celebrating big milestones and small ones; capturing sweet memories to cherish for a lifetime.
How long have you been a photographer? 3 years
What is unique about your business? Let's be honest, there are a ton of wedding photographers out there, and a lot of us have the same style. But even though we might have the same style, the person behind the lens is always different.
SO in essence, ME.
What you're getting besides gorgeous, moody, raw, wedding images that tell your love story, is a quirky, shamelessly geeky photographer who wants to make sure you have a LOAD fun in front of the camera.
Favourite part of your business? Hands down the best part is capturing those sweet, intimate moments of my couple's big day for them to cherish forever.
Cheesy, I know, but it's true. I love being a part of such a HUGE milestone in people's lives.
What inspires you? The lace on a wedding dress, the sparkle of an engagement ring, the light shining on a radiant bride's face.
It's the details, the beauty in the small things that makes my pulse race, my fingers itch, and the shutter click.
Who do you admire in the industry or your field? I kiss the ground upon which Susan Stripling walks on.
Where would we find you on your day off? Usually in a coffee shop with a good book, but after this May, I have a feeling it will be cuddling my baby boy.
If you weren't in the wedding industry, what would your dream job be? Fashion Photographer.
What great wedding trends are you seeing this year? Don't get me wrong, I LURVE vintage stuff, but I'm also a fan of glitz and glamour so I'm totally stoked that all things that shine and sparkle are coming "IN".
Lastly, Do you have any advice for the couple? Make sure you LOVE the person behind camera as much as you love the images that they produce. You don't want a jerk following you around on one of the biggest days of your life!
