HI, WE'RE SHELLEY + PORTUGAL.
We are husband-and-wife creatives committed to embracing people of all walks of life. Portugal Story Co. is our photography & videography partnership based an hour north of Nashville, Tennessee.
Though we are both visual creatives, we hail from very different backgrounds. While Shelley was photographing weddings and studying photojournalism in college, Portugal was living out of his backpack documenting life on the road. Living 1,000 miles apart, we found each other on Instagram and fell in love over FaceTime before we ever met in person. We never set out to find each other the way we did; we were just both seeking the same love, truth, and righteousness when God showed us that we could be much better together. We got married in 2016 and now reside halfway between two of our favorite cities, Nashville & Louisville.
We love going new places and meeting new people, and our job as visual storytellers allows us to do just that. We travel EVERY chance we get and love to do so for photography. We love working together as a team, and our creative energy and passion for people is what fuels us to tell honest visual stories.
We are available for domestic & worldwide travel.
