Colorado Wedding Photographer

wine enthusiast
loves dogs

I'm Shelly. I'm a wedding photographer based in Colorado that travels up to the mountains and all over the front range for beautiful luxury weddings. I'm a sucker for pretty landscapes and a sunset over an alpine mountain.

Meet Shelly

Colorado wedding photographer

I'm the girl that wants to share everything with you. I want to hear your story and get to know you deeply. I currently live in Denver, CO, and when I'm not behind my camera, you can find me hiking or camping in the Colorado mountains, or drinking a glass of wine outside with a big golden retriever named Gonzo. I love dogs and mountains and travel. And I love creating memories for my couples. I'm an open book when it comes to my photography, so feel free to ask me anything.

I would love to take a pause on your scrolling to let all my couples know that I photograph people.....all people, and all their love. No matter what your love represents, or what your flavor is, I do not discriminate on who I choose as my clients. Love comes in all shapes, sizes, races, genders, ages, sexuality....you name it. It is all special and equally precious. I want my couples to feel comfortable with me knowing that I am here for you and I see you, and I think your love is beautiful.




making your memories timeless

I photograph all love.

Inclusivity

While I view every person, every couple, and every wedding as unique, I still approach each shoot with a creative eye. I see every photo shoot as an experience. .I want my clients to walk away with a diverse photo gallery. We will get your "traditional shots", (you know, the ones great for Save the Dates and Thanks You cards), but we also spend most of the time experimenting.


My Approach

For weddings, there are two parts of every wedding- the portraits, and then the party. For the "portraits", such as of the wedding couple, or the bridal party, I like the imagery to be very natural. 
I value posed actions rather than poses. Movement rather than formality. Spontaneity rather than stiffness. My favorite photos of every session are the in-between moments. Below I talk about how I achieve this. 

For the "party", it is more documentary. I turn my camera on to the guests. I like to see who was laughing, who was shedding a tear, who was hugging, who is dancing. THESE are the photos that create that warm and fuzzy feeling when you look back at your wedding photos. It is the only time in your life that you will be getting all of your favorite people under one roof. They are just as important to your wedding day as you are.

"Shelly is the absolute greatest wedding photographer. She is a light to have around and makes you feel supported and cared for on your big day. She coordinated all our photo locations with epic landscape scenery going over Hoosier pass on the way from breckenridge to our venue. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and was incredible at coordinating a large group of people with kindness and fun. "

/ Jennifer + Ben

"Shelly is UNREAL, our wedding photos were stunning, capturing every intricate moment and the energy of our guests perfectly. We couldn't be happier with how every photo turned out. Our wedding guests too were blown away at her photography and can't stop sharing her photos."
