Weddings by Shelby Ann Foto
All are welcome in love...
Before The Big Day
Whether you're planning the wedding a year out, or decide to elope next month, I want to work with you. After our phone or video consult -- where we can learn a little more about each other -- I will send you customized package quotes. Once we book, you'll be sent my Big Questionnaire to complete before the event. If time/schedules allow, I love to walkthrough a venue or take a video tour together before the event. Prior to the event, I will create and share a shooting schedule for the day. Need Save-The-Date or rehearsal coverage? Just let me know! Obviously, all situations are unique, and require more or less prep work depending on the type of event. I love open communication and believe in making this process as smooth as possible for you.
On The Big Day
Your wedding is your day. Thanks to the planning process -- and having a pre-approved shot list and schedule -- you can enjoy yourself knowing that I've got you covered. Flexibility is key as well, as things can always shift day of an event, so I am always ready to improvise on the fly, or rearrange certain shots without interrupting the flow of your day. I am there to capture all the moments, big and small.
After The Big Day
It is important to me that I take the time necessary to perfect your photos, without leaving you with an excessive wait time for delivery. With that in mind, I return around 10 previews of your event within 3 days, and return your entire digital album within 6-8 business weeks. Events tend to generate anywhere from 35 to 100 final edited images an hour, and all files can be downloaded at high resolution with no watermarks.
I also do a second round of edits and extra edit options on about 20 select favorite photos based on client feedback -- not sure what to pick? No problem! I am happy to go through your album with you and help select photos for re-editing.
After the event, you are welcome to purchase high quality prints through my website for 10% off, or use a service of your own choice. I can design an heirloom album to help commemorate your special day, or provide a digital slide slow gallery to share with friends and family as well.
A&J, Fall 2023
"Shelby was the best photographer we could have asked for! We got our pictures back from our wedding and are completely thrilled with how they turned out! She completely captured our theme of a Halloween/horror themed wedding! She made us feel completely comfortable and was super easy going and made posing for pictures fun! I am so grateful for Shelby capturing our wedding so beautifully and now we have memories we can cherish forever."
Elopements are celebrations with less than 15 people total, and focus on capturing the intimate moments between you and your closest ones. Up to 2 locations, and can be from 90 minutes up to 4 hours.
I count "DIY" weddings as celebrations with less than 100 guests, and usually take place in non-typical venues (like a backyard), or where the couple is planning things themselves. Can be from 4 to 8 hours.
These are "full scale" weddings -- with a venue, planner, caterer, the whole nine yards! Includes the option to add a second shooter, as well as up to 12 hours onsite. Minimum 6 hours of coverage.
