Hi there!

I’m Shelly- coffee enthusiast, dog- video obsessed (like I will literally cry about the cuteness), calling Washington, DC home!  Originally though, I’m from Georgia- so bringing a little southern charm up north : ) I am a natural light photographer specializing in intimate weddings + elopements in the DMV area + beyond.

I am all about a good cup of coffee (like seriously.)… multiple times a day. I love traveling, adventures, and just exploring DC with my husband Patrick. We have a very large “puppy” named Moose and you’ll always find a stock of craft beer in the fridge. Our favorite thing is to try ALL the awesome food that the city has to offer! There is a list. Its color coded.

90’s alternative is still my jam and my husband and I have a “special” TV cycle which involves watching The Office or Parks + Rec in between every new show – what can I say, they have our hearts! I am a Harry Potter girl (yes, there is a tattoo involved) and could probably..definitely.. live off chips + salsa.

I fell in love with people in love + haven’t looked back. People who love deeply, with their whole heart have captured mine. I work with beautiful souls who are romantic, unique, silly, adore each other and want a photographer who will capture the real stuff- the authentic, raw, beautiful love they share. They are up for adventure (weather we are wandering around the city or exploring the woods), are okay to get their dress a little dirty, and want to fully enjoy their day, not have it be a “big production”.  

These photos are an investment and I want them to capture who you two are together- your story. I am not about those posed, stiff photos- lets face it, those are not the ones that really represent you, your relationship or how you love. I’m all about you interacting with your person and all the magic little moments in between.

The REAL stuff. The perfectly imperfect souls you are who love madly, everyday.

                                                     Tell me your story & lets go on an adventure!
