Fantastic photographer.

I chose Shelley as a photographer for my wedding as she came across as very caring and friendly.
My wedding was a small intimate family gathering.
Shelley’s reviews were excellent on your website, and the photos she had taken were amazing.
Shelley went out of her way to make my day very special, you could hardly tell she was there, she blended in so well.
She did a lovely slideshow of my day which is a lovely keepsake.
I would recommend her she is very professional.

Above and beyond amazing!!!!

Shelley was our photographer at our wedding in December last year and she was absolutely amazing!!! She was so helpful with the whole day too not just with the photos and went above and beyond, nothing was ever too much for her. We received the photos back so quickly and they were absolutely gorgeous exactly what we wanted. To top it off Shelley is just a kind, genuine person and it was a pleasure having her as our wedding photographer! We can’t thank her enough. Love Claire & George xx

Tailor made for our intimate wedding

Shelley made our day extra special. She tailor made it to accommodate our small wedding party (10 people). She made us feel comfortable even though my husband and I both don’t like having our photo taken. We have some lovely photos to remember our special day. Would 100% recommend.

Fantastic photography, would highly recommend

Shelley did our wedding photos in December 2021, we absolutely adore them. Her shots are far from the traditional line ups that you would usually expect and instead she managed to capture the day as if she wasn’t even there! The hardest part was choosing which ones we wanted to share and display. We would highly recommend Shelley for all of your photography needs not just weddings 💕

Beautiful moments captured!

Shelley has been our photographer a few times! She captures not just moments but also the feelings and emotions of an event. She seems to be everywhere seeing little things that most people would miss. She is always so professional, on time and delivers what is promised. I highly recommend Shelley Costello Photography!
