I'm here for the bride who does both. The bride who appreciates the classic elements of a wedding, while still wanting to do something unexpected. The bride who values both the ease of the digital camera, and the iconic and everlasting impact of the film camera. 


The Mona Lisa Meets The MET


What Happens When You Mix Classic & Cutting Edge?


What does Princess Di's Revenge Dress have in common with the crop tops and low-rise pants worn by one of my favorite childhood bands, Destiny's Child? Well, for starters, they're all worn by strong females with larger-than-life personalities. And beyond that, each look has solidified itself in the fashion archives as iconic. Proof that you can do it all- you can be classic and cutting edge- and we can document all of it, together. 


Classic Meets Cutting Edge

experience

Selfishly, I became a photographer so that I could control the photography experience for others. Growing up, whenever my family would book photo sessions, I just never loved how the day inevitably turned out. There was never any intrigue, no nuance or romanticism to the experience. And so, I picked up a camera and decided to learn how to give others the personal, romanticized, absolutely ethereal experience that I myself had always wanted.

As a client, expect collaboration. Expect mood boards and excitement and helping with outfit planning! I want to get to know you- really understand the season of life that you're in- so that I can best capture that behind the lens.

"She made my husband and I feel so comfortable during our engagement photos & on our wedding day. We could not have had a better photographer guiding us through the biggest day of our lives! Not only is she friendly, organized, and a gem to be around, she’s also your biggest fan & greatest hype woman!"

"Mary is a goddess behind a camera."

– delayne & Johnny

"She made us feel so comfortable and we laughed literally the entire time!"

– Olivia & Jordan 

"Without a question we knew we wanted Mary to be apart of our big day! She knows how to have fun, set people where they need to be, get things done and the most obvious, takes AMAZING pictures! We sure love Mary and will ALWAYS reference her. She’s an absolute joy to work with!"

"Mary made the entire experience fun, lighthearted, and so genuine."

– mr & mrs fritz

"Mary Shelton Media is the BEST. First of all, she is the most personable and encouraging person ever. She makes people feel at ease, themselves, and genuinely excited to be in front of the camera. As someone who doesn't love getting pictures taken, I was nervous, but all the photos turn out beautifully! Mary really aims to capture the heart and beauty of the people in front of the camera, not just point and shoot."
