Hi!  I’m Shelbs, your doggo obsessed, travel loving, Indiana based elopement photographer.  I’m your honorary bridesmaid, your emotional support when wedding planning, and your go to girl for everything you could possibly need the day of your wedding. You might be wondering why this all matters right now, but trust me, it matters a lot.  Your trust matters a lot.  As your elopement photographer there is a LOT of trust that goes into our relationship, and one of the best ways to build trust is to get to know one another. So here’s a bit about me!

Why You Need to Get to Know Your Elopement Photographer

You’re Trusting My Eyes to Retell the Story of Your Wedding

As your elopement photographer, I will always document what is most important to you. Your details, your stories, and your truths represented in the form of photos will be all there is left after your wedding day is over.  I want more than anything to document your wedding day, the way you see it, and document the details that matter to you the most. This is why your trust is SO important on your wedding day.

I’ll Probably Spend More Time With You Two Than You Will With Each Other

Whether you’re planning a traditional wedding or an elopement you’ll be spending a lot of time with me. There is a fairly high probability that you will be spending just as much time with me, if not more, on your wedding day than your future partner.  That’s why it is SO important that you get to know me, your elopement/wedding photographer, and I get to know you, my client. That way we know that we get along and our personalities mesh well so that when your wedding day arrives, we are two peas in a pod! 

I’ll Be There Every Step of the Way

Not only will I spend a whole lot of time with you on your wedding day, but I will also spend a lot of time with you leading up to your wedding day.  With my background in hospitality, and multiple years of experience in the wedding industry, my couples rely on me to help with things like packing, choosing outfits, and planning out their wedding day timeline.  I’m more than just your photographer, I am your support as you plan out your wedding day.  Because this is such a long term relationship, it’s important that you get to know the experience I provide before you hire me as your photographer.  Everyone deserves to have the perfect photographer for their wedding day, and I want to be sure that I can be that person for you.

Meet Your Indiana Based Elopement Photographer

 A little bit of info so you can get to know your favorite Indiana elopement photographer.  On the weekends you can find me either at an elopement spending time with my adventurous couples, or sitting out on my front porch, planning my next trip with my boyfriend and pups.  At night we might hit up our local dive bar, or stop by the local Sam’s club for my favorite treat, pancake popcorn.

My drinks of choice are a Vodka Soda, Mojitos or margs, and though I am not a morning person, I become a morning person anytime a client asks me to meet them for a sunrise session!

When I show up to your wedding day, I will be finishing up my Starbucks refresher and a breakfast sammie, ready for whatever the day throws at us.

My Mission

I started doing photography because I wanted to remember and document everything.  Photos last a lifetime and they are the only things other than memories that live on past your wedding day. I want future generations to see how we lived, what we felt, how much fun we had and were, and show the traditions for years to come.

Your photos don’t have to be posed and perfect, every part of your day may not go as planned, but no matter what it’s your wedding day and we will make the absolute most of it. When you look back at your wedding photos years down the road they’ll transport you right back to the feelings and memories you have from your day. That’s the beauty of photography and what I love SO much about being an elopement photographer.
