Scottsdale, Arizona Wedding Photographer

A wedding photography experience focused on love, confidence, and candid moments,

Meet shelby

I love photography. Not because of the pictures, but because of the people. As a wife and mom, I've seen how quickly those important moments pass by, and I've come to cherish the memories I've been able to capture even more.

I've had a camera in my hand since I was 10, and it didn't take long before I learned the power I have to make others feel beautiful. When you step in front of my camera, that's my wish for you as well. To feel beautiful and confident just as you are.

i'm obsessed with the arizona desert, muted greens, and sunset glows.

i'm shelby

"We hired Shelby to photograph our wedding and it was the most amazing experience ever to work with her. She is so sweet and kind and made both my husband and I feel so comfortable and amazing throughout the whole process of working together, especially during pictures. Shelby went above and beyond for us and even got our pictures back to us so quickly and sent sneak peeks to us to hold us over through our excitement of wanting to relive our wedding day. As a photographer myself, pictures were super important to me and having a talented photographer that takes amazing pictures was #1 on my priority list when it came to our wedding. We got that and so much more. I'm so glad I hired Shelby and am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her! She's incredible!!”

"Shelby was a doll to work with leading up to the wedding. Her and her second shooter made our wedding day so simple when it came to capturing each and every special moment and we felt so comfortable in their hands. They guided us through the various "steps" of our wedding and provided great direction when it came to taking the perfect shot. They were perfectly professional and great company as well. Aside from the day of experience, their followup and communication was top-notch. We received our sneak peek gallery within days of the wedding, which was such a great surprise! Our full wedding gallery was sent almost four weeks before agreed. Their work is just beautiful and I would highly recommend partnering with Shelby Lea Photography for your wedding day without question."
