Woo Family

Over the years, Shelly helped capture some of our most memorable family events: from maternity photo session, first birthday party, to family photoshoot. Shelly has a wonderful ability to make everyone feel comfortable and smile. She works great with kids and knows exactly how to shoot alongside their energy.

Her turnaround time for photos is very good. The number of high quality shots made it tough for us to narrow down the selects.

We have nothing but the highest praise for Shelly. If we could, we'd ask her to capture every single event and outing!

“Shelly Stokes took family photos for us and we were beyond happy with the results! Taking family photos of a family with three active busy boys could be a great challenge, but Shelly nailed it. Actually things went so well we decided to include our two family dogs. We are grateful for the photos she captured of our boys personalities shining through her photos. We will definitely use Shelly for years to come!"

Shelly’s photographs of our engagement and wedding were amazing. She was extremely professional and courteous in helping us not only with the great photographs  she took but by offering great advice about potential locations for the photo shoot and spending the entire day with us to ensure that we were able to capture the best shots. Her thoughtfulness throughout the day and commitment to getting every photo with friends and family on our wedding day we had discussed beforehand was impressive. 


We chose not to have a videographer for our wedding day and don’t think we missed out on much as Shelly perfectly captured and documented every moment of our special day! Shelly provided us with lots of pictures that will serve as memories for years to come. Thank you Shelly!

Shelly did a phenomenal job photographing our wedding! Our two year anniversary is next month we have so many beautiful memories to look at as we celebrate! Her photography style captured our most meaningful moments. We truly appreciated having someone who was so attuned to our specific details.

It’s been awhile, as we have not had a family photo taken by a professional photographer. I saw Shelly’s work and I’d say I’ve made the right choice. She is very kind and patient, not rushing us to do different poses. We are very happy with the results and look forward to do more family photos with her in the future.

"I finally found the courage to take some boudior pictures for my husband. It was important to me to work with a photographer that was supportive and reassuring. Shelly couldn't have been nicer, more positive, fun to work with and she truly made me feel special. The pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined and my husband loves them. Thanks for an awesome experience!"
