WE WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU TO TELL YOUR STORY.

It’s *you two* and your love that inspires us more than anything else does. There’s nothing more rewarding than getting to carry the responsibility of your trust and confidence, and that’s why it’s really important to us that you have an incredible experience from start to finish. 

We love getting to know you two as friends and hearing your story. We strive to create a space of freedom in front of our cameras that you can be yourselves in, and we love chasing down the moments and unexpected memories that you will cherish for years to come. We want to approach your wedding day as friends, and we’ll cheer you on as you do things YOUR way… because this is an amazingly special and beautiful thing that’s happening. 

You’re not just another couple to us — you’re two people with a story that is completely worthy of being documented by enthusiastic and creative photographers who get it.

WE LOVE…

  • getting to know you as friends to tell your love story

  • the little details that mean the world to you

  • that you give us full creative freedom to create something unique + beautiful just for you

  • that you are just as excited about the journey as you are the destination

  • that you don’t mind getting your hands (or in this case, dress hem) a little dirty

  • that your friends + family welcome us like friends + family

  • that you are doing things YOUR way

  • that you understand that photos are the only thing that will gain value as time passes

  • that more than anything, you just can’t wait to finally be married to your person

PHOTOGRAPHY INSPIRED BY YOU + YOUR LOVE.

We serve couples who know that if they want candid, joyful, honest photography, that means they need more than just pretty pictures — what they need is an incredible EXPERIENCE.

LET’S GET DOWN TO THE NITTY-GRITTY

________________

PACKAGES:

Our packages are all-inclusive. This means that from planning the ideal timeline so you can be worry-free on the wedding day to delivering the edited gallery to your inbox, we want you to feel completely confident in us as your photographers. We don’t “dial things back” for smaller packages—every single client gets 100% of our efforts to make our experience together incredible. Every photography package includes two photographers, a 90 minute engagement session, access to a private online gallery, and a USB of the digital files. Photography packages start at $2,500 and videography packages start at $2,800. Tandem photo + video packages (yes, we do both!) start at $4,400. And after the wedding, our albums are available a la carte and are custom-designed by us to beautifully display the story of your day in print.

We call this an investment because this is something that only gains value as time passes. Photography & videography are the only thing you have left once the day is over. The cake gets eaten, the flowers wilt, and the fancy clothes get boxed up. But these visuals preserve the moments from the best day of your life for all time. If there’s anything you shouldn’t cut corners on, it’s this.

OUR STYLE + APPROACH:

We firmly believe that documenting your day candidly is so essential to telling your story well. This is why we love getting comfortable with one another before the wedding. That way, when we arrive on the big day, we’re not just “the photographers” — we’re Shelley + Portugal! We love that our clients that trust us tell their story artistically from our perspective. We’re also pros at commanding a crowd and ensuring portraits/family formals run smoothly, and we’re suckers for thoughtful details and touches. Our primary goal for your wedding day is that you would feel worry-free to be yourself — we’ll preserve it all for you.

AVAILABILITY:

We are now booking for 2020 + 2021! Fill out our contact form if you’re ready to get some more info. The next step is filling out the contract and getting a date on the calendar for an engagement session. A $1,000 deposit is due at the time of booking to reserve your date.


You won’t get this day back, so please don't settle for less than photographers who understand what really matters.

Priceless memories + emotions preserved for all time; your legacy for generations to come.
This is an heirloom that gains value as time passes, and will be around long after you are gone.
