I used Shelby Leigh for my boudoir photography session for wedding a gift to my husband! She did an amazing job and I couldn't be more greatful for such an intimate and special gift she helped me create. She's very easy to work with and has a great way of putting you at ease.

I love the pictures that shelby takes. They are fantastic and really tell the story of your day. Unfortunetely, her lack of responsiveness is unprofessional. I have called her at least once every week for the past two months and still have not gotten a return call. She has posted my wedding pictures and ask that we pick our favorites so she can make our photo album, which was included in the package. We have done that and two months later we are still waiting. The thing is that she won't give us the digital files of our pictures until she gets the album done. This is extremely annoying since we would like to make christmas gifts with our digital files. I recommend Shelby for her photography only because her pictures are amazing. but if you have low patience, she is not for you.

Let me start this review with the positives...my wife and I wanted a modern, fresh perspective in our wedding photos. We didn't want a bunch of stiff, posed pictures that could've been from the 19th Century. When we saw Shelby's work and met her, we immediately knew that we wanted to work with her! She does have an excellent eye and captures wonderful and special moments...many that we didn't even see ourselves. It really was a wonderful experience and we loved all of our pictures...until time started ticking by! It has been almost a year now...we still don't have prints of our pictures or our album! She has gone MiA multiple times since the wedding!!! She doesn't respond to e-mails or phone calls. We've actually had a lawyer get involved just to order our album (which 3+ months later, we still don't have), and he found out that she's actually been sued before! Not surprising! She's very young and energetic, and a talented photographer, but she has absolutely no business running her own company! She's completely irresponsible and an incredibly poor business person! She'd be much better off working for an established studio. Save yourself months of heartache and trouble and just look elsewhere! As great as her pictures are, and we'll cherish them forever, nothing is worth dealing with this!

I hired Shelby because she was recommended by my wedding planner. We were the first clients that the wedding planner was recommending her for because we wanted an inexpensive photographer. She was a lovely person and SO SO young. She was really fun to work with and I hate having my pictures taken. Her engagement and wedding pictures were gorgeous (best I've ever taken and better pictures that most wedding pictures I've seen) and were posted very quickly. Getting the engagement photos was very quick and the wedding album took 4 months, but we didn't select our final pictures for months after the wedding. My parents didn't submit their order for many, many months and she had removed the pictures by that time. They emailed her and never heard back. When I was approaching the 4 month mark I emailed and called her to see when the book would arrive and I never heard back. Basically, fabulous photographer, but poor at the 'business' aspect of her business. She needs an assistant. Several friends of mine have used her for pictures and have been very happy, but I told them to submit their order immediately and not to expect great communication. I would still recommend her because she's a wonderful artist.

Since I first met Shelby over 2 years ago she has been nothing but AWESOME!! For my wedding last April she showed up almost an hour early and even stayed later then she was initially hired for. She has a great modern magazine style, and we are so thrilled with both our engagement and wedding photos. Sometimes we'd have to wait a few days for a response or call back but she has gone above and beyond with everything else, she was so helpful in designing our wedding album and she even surprised us with our engagement session CD (not included in our package) for our 1 year anniversary! I would hire Shelby again and again!

Shelby is a very young photographer who is gifted but her non ability of being organized & true to her contracts makes her a unsuccessful wedding photographer. She not only LOST pictures from my wedding (3 hrs.) she was completely unresponsive to my calls & emails. Yes she LOST almost my entire reception!!!!!! Her lack of professionalism & lack of "HEART" is something i would strongly stay away from. DO NOT HIRE HER!
