[Shelley] is friendly and very easy to approach even for a timid person like me. She is a great listener. She tried her best to understand our ideas for pictures even though they might be vague and strange! She is such a very creative photographer. She has lots of great ideas, which make her stand out from many other photographers.
She thinks like a bride, and she knows what kind of pictures a bride would want. I can say that if she is your photographer, you know that you WILL NOT ONLY get the boring “routine” wedding pictures, but you WILL also get a lot of special pictures that are different from everyone else’s wedding.
On my wedding day, she arrived much earlier than the start of the ceremony. All day I did not have to worry about her at all! She was taking great pictures everywhere without being in the way. When I saw a great moment happening, she was already there snapping pictures! She captured tons of special moments on my wedding day that I missed because I was so busy being a bride! The pictures she took are of excellent quality, and they’re like a documentary of the whole event!
Shelley is very easy to work with. Everyone at my wedding was comfortable around her. My husband is the kind of person whose face turns stiff when a camera lens is pointing at him. Also, I’ve never seen pictures of my father-in-law smiling! Shelley found ways to capture my husband’s and my father-in-law’s smile. Seeing those pictures melts my heart, and those are some of my most favorite pictures!
I’m a very picky person. I’m also very self-conscious and normally hate 9 out of 10 of the pictures of myself. It wasn’t hard for me to pick out pictures taken by other photographers I had before Shelley. Shelley gave me soooo many awesome pictures that I still can’t decide which pictures to frame because I would frame all of them if I could! She found great angles for pictures, and her editing work made the pictures even more beautiful. She made me look pretty even in pictures when I was getting ready, before finishing makeup with rollers in my hair! Never in a million years that I would think a picture of myself like that could be nice!
I’ve seen wedding photographers that just disappeared until it was time to take those routine wedding pictures. Needless to say, those photographers missed a lot of moments that made a couple’s wedding their wedding. Shelley is not one of those photographers. She has shown us passion for photography from the moment we contacted her. I would definitely recommend Shelley Foster to anyone who wants someone reliable to take high-quality pictures!
