I met Shelbi and Matt back in November of 2018 when I photographed their first wedding anniversary. From the start I knew that I had to keep this two forever.
No surprise that Shelbi and I became friends as we have a common love for home decor (go follow here @lifeofshelbi) over the years I have had the pleasure of not only photographing their love story but watching it continue to unfold. From that first anniversary, to Christmas photos, to a lifestyle session in their newly renovated house to ironically being back home in Tampa to capture their maternity. Their story is one that is near and dear to my heart. On my last trip back home to Tampa this fall I had the pleasure of meeting their newest addition, Axel, and I won’t lie – seeing these two for the first time as parents gave me all the feels.
I know that many photographers tell you to own your “niche” but I want you to remember that your love story doesn’t end after you say I do. As a photographer who thinks of her clients as friends I want you to know that there is nothing more fulfilling than capturing the moments of your story season after season.
