About Shelby Ellis Photography

Hello! I'm Shelby, an award-winning UK & Destination Wedding and Engagement Photographer based in Kent.

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.

I have photographed so many unique weddings - from Church ceremonies to outdoor ceremonies; same-sex weddings, rustic barn weddings, 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!

  • "We are so impressed with Shelby"
    Alice & Theo on 31 August 2017

    We are so glad we chose Shelby to capture our wedding day! Shelby beautifully captured tiny, special details from the day. Our gorgeously packaged photographs were delivered within 3 weeks of the wedding and we are so impressed with Shelby's professionalism, calmness and attentive communication with us. Thank you, Shelby!

    Karen & Liam on 31 August 2017

    Cannot recommend Shelby enough she was fab!! Captured our day just as we wanted it - relaxed and dog friendly! She came to my room to photograph me getting ready right through to our first dance and every thing in between.. to be honest I barely noticed she was there and she took some brill shots. We loved all of them.. Thank you so much Shelby you were a STAR

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

- Full day coverage £1250 - Optional extras: Second shooter £200

What services do you offer?

Wedding & Engagement Photography

What does the wedding package include?

My photography package includes: - Pre-wedding consultation (venue visit if possible/reasonable); - No time limitations on the day (also within reason!); - Complimentary Engagement shoot; - All edited high-resolution photos on a customised USB; - A handful of 6x4 prints in a lovely keepsake box; - Full printing and sharing rights; - Online password-protected gallery to view and share with family and friends.

How far in advance should I contact you?

There really is no set answer for this - I've had couples enquire anything from 18 months to 6 days before their wedding! It's always worth checking my availability, no matter when your wedding is.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

I would never accept bookings for the same date. You can rest assured that your day is YOUR day, I am with you 100% and my attention will never be anywhere else.

Are you able to travel?

Yes! I drive and have my own car, so travel is not an issue for me.

What is the charge for travelling?

Travel to any wedding venue within 2 hours 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 - to avoid me getting stuck in traffic on the day! For international weddings, travel and accommodation costs are decided on an individual case-basis.

What style of photos do you take?

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 kind of equipment do you use?

I use a full-frame Canon DSLR (and always carry a back up camera body!) with a wide variety of lenses to capture different shots. I also use external flashguns for evening/party photos.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

My wedding photography package includes a password-protected online gallery, which can be shared with friends and family. My galleries also have the functionality for you to order prints and canvases of your favourite shots!

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I usually say up to 6 weeks in peak wedding season, but in general my turnaround time is much quicker than this - usually 2-3 weeks from your wedding date.

Do you send all the photos taken?

I cull my images to remove any misfires, out of focus shots or those where the subject has blinked! I do not cap the number of images delivered, so you will receive ALL the photos that I deem worthy!

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I usually work alone, except on occasions where my clients have opted to include a second shooter in their package - an additional £200 to cover the second's expenses and time, as well as covering my additional editing time. In the event that you choose to include a second photographer, I do all of the culling and editing to ensure consistency in you final images.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

I am lucky enough to be part of a very wide network of wedding photographers, so in the unlikely event that I am unable to photograph your wedding, there are plenty of people I can get to cover if need be.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

I do not cap my wedding coverage, therefore if things run a little late (and let's face it, it's not a wedding if they don't!) then I am perfectly happy to stay longer when required.

What are the forms of payment?

I accept payment by bank transfer, Paypal, cheque or cash.
