Hi, I'm Shelby

UK & Destination Wedding Photographer

Emotion-filled wedding photography you’ll love to look at again and again. My name is Shelby and I specialise in capturing authentic moments on a wedding day. My wedding photography style is natural, informal and, above all, about capturing the day as it unfolds. After all, everyone looks photogenic when they’re having a good time!

Message Shelby Ellis Photography for a quote and price for the day and to check their availability.

How would you describe your style?

I have been passionate about photography since I was little - which is quite something for me, as I'm nearly 6ft tall! As soon as I picked up a camera for the very first time, I just knew - this is what I want to do. Taking natural shots of those beautiful moments which we otherwise might forget, my style is simple and unobtrusive - I've even been known to make a few groomsmen jump when I've quietly crept up beside them to get the perfect angle! I specialise in capturing those candid moments and natural emotions – all the laughter and tears of a wedding celebration. My style favours documentary-like story telling rather than posed or staged shots, and my clients love how relaxed this makes them feel on the day.

What do you love about weddings?

I have photographed so many unique weddings - from Church ceremonies to outdoor ceremonies; same-sex weddings, rustic barn weddings, several destination weddings and even a wedding reception at the top of the Gherkin in London! This is why I love being a wedding photographer. I never get bored of capturing weddings, as they are always so different. So no matter what style of wedding you're planning, get in touch!

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

Find a photographer who you connect with. Of course you have to love their work as well, but this person will be with you on the most important day of your life, so it's really important that you actually feel you want them there - you'll look far more comfortable in the photos too!

Your Travel policy?

I travel absolutely anywhere in the world to photograph beautiful weddings. I've been fortunate enough to photograph weddings in France, Italy, Greece and the Channel Islands so far, and I have plenty more destinations on my bucket list!

Travel to any wedding venue within 100 miles of my home address is included in my package price. For UK weddings outside of this range I charge 40p/mile. Additional costs may also apply for accommodation, which we can discuss prior to booking. For international weddings, travel and accommodation costs are quoted on an individual case-basis depending on your requirements.

HER CALMNESS AND NON-INTRUSIVE STYLE OF CAPTURING PHOTOS REALLY PUT ME AT EASE

We got married recently and had Shelby as our photographer on the day. We honestly couldn't have been more happier with her work, professionalism and her attention to detail! Shelby has been professional and responsive through out the whole process.

Shelby was amazing on the day, her calmness and non-intrusive style of capturing photos really put me at ease (as I don't find being in front of the camera easy). The photos came back beautifully and the editing style captured our day so well. The photos are such a treasure and captured our wedding memories so beautifully. We're so honoured to have had Shelby as our photographer and I couldn't recommend more.

THE PHOTOS SHE HAS PRODUCED ARE BEYOND WHAT WE COULD HAVE IMAGINED

What can I say... Shelby is just amazing!! From when we first met her at a wedding fair she was so friendly, helpful and lovely - so much so we actually cancelled our wedding photographer so we could book her! And she absolutely did not disappoint.

Right from the start of the booking process Shelby was attentive and helpful and answered my many many questions with no trouble at all.

At our pre wedding photoshoot she put us at ease and made us feel so comfortable and the results were incredible, I've never seen such beautiful photos, that was until we received our wedding day gallery. Wow!
Shelby was amazing on the day, a real calming presence and she offered help and advice when we needed it (like how to cut a wedding cake properly!). We absolutely could not fault Shelby, she was brilliant in every sense and the photos she has produced are beyond what we could have imagined. Shelby we cannot thank you enough for capturing the special moments of our day, moments that will now be able to treasure forever.

WE HAD LOADS OF FUN TAKING THE PHOTOS WITH HER.

Shelby was absolutely amazing on our wedding day. She captured so many fantastic shots of the day and we couldn't be happier with her work. She not only made us feel relaxed from start to finish but we had loads of fun taking the photos with her.

It's amazing how much more relaxed we were after having done the recommended engagement shoot. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Thanks again for everything Shelby!

HER PHOTOS ARE NATURAL-LOOKING AND TRULY DESCRIPTIVE OF THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE DAY.

We spoke with lots of different photographers and eventually found some of Shelby’s work on a wedding blog. We were immediately excited because her photos are natural-looking and truly descriptive of the atmosphere of the day; showing everything from the build-up to the evening dancing.

From initial emails, Shelby was very attentive and helpful, and readily accommodated all of our many questions sent over email due to us living off-island. The final photos illustrate the moments we remember best, as well as parts of the day that we missed and are now thrilled to have recorded.

The lighting and colours are absolutely beautiful, and we so appreciate all the hard work that was put into the shooting and careful editing of each shot. We couldn’t recommend Shelby more for her professionalism and talent!

SHE INSTANTLY MADE US FEEL COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA.

Shelby is amazing and we cannot recommend her enough! She photographed our wedding and did such an incredible job; the photos blew us away and we cannot stop looking at them. She was fantastic on the day, a true professional and she captured the day so beautifully.

We also did two couples' shoots with her before the big day - she made them so much fun and she instantly made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We will treasure all of our photos forever and we cannot thank her enough!
