Shelly Mak Photo is a photography business whose focus lies within it's passion for people. Everyone has a different story to tell, which is the main element to Shelly Mak Photo's journalistic style of photography.
In addition to owning this business, I am also a full time Crime Scene Investigator so, yes... I've been photographing all forms of life for quite some time now!
I strive to capture the unique laughter and love a client brings to the session. It's a beautiful, creative process that I enjoy every minute of.
So let's create something awesome.
I love to learn more about you all. Just enough so that I can capture your relationships in the right light.
We pick a time, date and location that you all love and/or admire. I'm up for an adventure!
Lets take pictures! I do my best to cultivate laughter and make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. I want to tell the story of you.
WHAT YOU'RE GETTING
Every photographer has been told "your prices are too high" more times than we all can count - and I totally get it. It's kind of shocking to see vendor prices for the first time when wedding planning begins. But professionals put a price tag on their work for a reason, so here are mine as to what you're getting when you book me:
I have over 10 years of experience in natural-light portrait photography.
It is my top priority to make clients feel comfortable while I'm posing & directing them - I will never leave you to figure it out.
I photograph in 'Manual' mode which means, I know how to properly operate a camera. I don't use 'Auto' and hike up my prices.
I have top-of-the-line Canon camera equipment.
I give you as many beautiful photos as we can fit into our session.
I lightly and professionally retouch every photo you receive.
As a small business owner, I am in charge of operations, coordinating, editing, finances, marketing, purchasing supplies and equipment, book-keeping and the lead photographer. I am everything in one!
You're not just a dollar sign to me, I genuinely care that you love the portraits given back to you.
I hope this makes you more comfortable in choosing a photographer to document your milestones. I'm proud of this business I've built over the years and humbly enjoy documenting such important events for clients. I would be honored to be considered for your next portraits!
