Shelby Liz Co.
For me, inspiration comes from seeing a photograph that makes me well up inside. When I can physically feel the love deep in my core. When I feel connected to the people and places in them even though I've never met them. Photography is everything; when the present fades to memories. Photography captures and restores the memory of incredible lives lived. Art in any form is Humanity. Plain and simple. Art saves lives. It is what is good, kind, and generous in all of us. Photographing people who share their stories reveals this to me time and time again. You all teach me everything I need to know about this life, and I am lucky to witness it.
I'm Shelby. My friends call me Shelbs. Here's a bit about me: As you may have gathered, I am a wedding and portrait photographer thats been documenting stories for 3 years. I love many things, but of those my favorites are waking up to puppy snuggles from my golden retriever, Sonoma. Coffee and wine are my go-to drinks of choice. I'm constantly outside in nature finding new paths to gorgeous places. My relationships are everything to me. I'm also a personal trainer thats spends the other half of my time in the gym helping people be the best versions of themself. Connection is everything. I have one motto: put others first and bask in delusional optimism. I'm not perfect, sometimes I falter from this, but it is my everlasting goal in life. To show up for this Earth, the people on it and everything it has to offer.
Hello, I'm Shelby.
Break the rules and live a life to be remembered.
Photography should withstand the test of time. When I capture time, I create a body of work that captures the real moments of your life. Unfiltered. There is nothing more special than photographs that share stories of genuine connection long after the people in those images fade away.
I love to work with clients who love to be anything but ordinary. I encourage you to embrace your authentic visions for your wedding day. My best work comes from the days when I can form a genuine connection with my couples and they trust that I will capture all the raw emotion of the day.
I have experienced weddings enough to know when to capture a moment that's in between all the others. The ones that you must stand back and observe to capture. The ones that you're afraid you might miss. I promise to freeze it perfectly in time.
Based in Sacramento, CA but available anywhere in the world.
