TERRIBLE photographer. EXTREMELY rude. Do not use if you want good quality and someone with a good attitude. The most smartelic and ugly acting individual I have ever met. She let her personal problems get in the way of her work, not professional whatsoever.

BEWARE!!!! Shelli took our money for engagement and wedding photos. She made promises about the location of engagement photos but then changed her story and refused to go to the place that we chose. She did not do our wedding photos but refuses to refund the money.

Shelli Nicole Photography responded with the following comments:

This review is not based on fact. I was contracted to do a wedding and engagement session. I did the engagement session, due to weather etc their original session was rescheduled. They wanted to get the session done ASAP, so i offered to work them in on a Saturday I already had sessions lined up at the Arboretum. They accepted. A file for the engagement image was delivered by email. I did not do the wedding because they decided to cancel. If they were unhappy with the location all they had to do was wait for another day and communicate with me.

Shelli Nicole photography is nothing more than a scam artist offering mediocre services for an outrageous cost. She has a terrible habit of not reaching out to her payed in full customers when something has caused a change in date such as weather. She is by no means professional, business oriented, or reputable by anyone other than the people she pays to leave reviews or the family and friends she has posting good reviews to promote her home grown pathetic attempt at being a true and talented business person. I would not recommend anyone use her services if you value what your wedding, engagement, anniversary, or major event photos may look like, or if you want to receive the photos for that matter. No professional emails pictures to anyone. And no professional would take a persons hard earned money for photos and not do the work. If Shelli Nicole photography, or Shelli Nicole amateurography couldn't meet the date requirents of a client, she should have never taken the job, or demanded payment up front. In this case, a true proffesional would offer an apology, and issue a refund for services not being rendered. Only a scam artist, and thief operates such a horrible attempt at business practices. In my personal opinion she should give her camera to a toddler. They would be able to take better photo's and would know that when you give your word to do a job you do it. Shelli Nicole amateurography should save all the future couples of america their time and money and stop her thievery. If your looking for a professional to do important photos for you, i would definitely choose a different business and not a thieving, unprofessional, horrible excuse for a "business" as Shelli Nicole Photography. I post this in hopes that you save yourself a heartache, and plead with you to choose someone else so that you may get the high quality pictures your looking for and deserve for your special occasion.

Since we were married in Jamaica on May 12, 2011, we had Shelli take pictures at our wedding reception. She was an amazing Photographer! I looked at a lot of photographers, but when my mother-in-law and I met with Shelli we knew she was the one for us. We knew she would fit right in with all of us, she had so much ENERGY and we liked that! The pictures turned out beautifully. We also just had Shelli take our twins newborn pictures, and I they look amazing!! Shelli will be my families photographer for everything! We LOVE her and her work!!!

She was very sweet and really had a feel what my fiance and I wanted for our wedding day. The only thing I would say was a negative experience was our engagement pictures. I read in a magazine shortly after our session that our location was one of the preferred sites for brides but was typically the worst for lighting for pictures. Our engagement pictures were not as high quality as our wedding pictures. I would however recommend her to anyone.

Shelli Nicole Photography responded with the following comments:

I can see how Lindsay could have felt that way about the Dallas Arboretum. Her session was Mid day, and not an optimal time for portraits at this location. If I had known she did not like the location I would have gladly chosen a different one or re-shot the session. This is the first time I have heard of her opinion regarding the engagement portraits, otherwise I would have fixed the issue long ago. Thanks for the review Lindsay!
