Kind Words

fresh, new and fun perspective 

Shelby brought a fresh, new and fun perspective to our most recent family photos.  She captured each of our three kids fun, and energetic personalities from behind her lens, and we have received numerous compliments on all of her photos that we have proudly displayed in our home! We look forward to working with Shelby to capture our future family memories. – Erin Klumper



she provides such a comfortable atmosphere

Shelby has done several sessions for myself and my boyfriend. I have very picky taste and wanted lifestyle/candid photos that truly captured our relationship. Shelby was so receptive of my vision and high maintenance requests, all while making the entire process seem so effortless. While taking the photos she provides such a comfortable atmosphere (especially for two awkward humans) and the process was SO quick (which was my boyfriends only request). Our pictures are so beautiful and proudly hang in our living space. She is both lovely and talented and I would highly recommend her for any vision that you may hold! – Keilan Pottle-Kelly



Shelby makes shoots enjoyable, and fun

Shelby’s work is not only amazing, but working with her is also amazing! I’ve gotten the privilege to work with Shelby for family photos, Boudoir photos, Maternity photos and to be part of a wedding party that she photographed. Every time I have felt extremely comfortable and laid back in front of the camera, which isn’t always very easy to do. Shelby makes shoots enjoyable, and fun, and always manages to capture such great shots! She has a lot of different ideas for poses, which brings great variety to a shoot. I always find it extremely hard to choose what photos to develop and frame because there’s always so many incredible shots to choose from. I look forward to working with Shelby again and again in the years to come, as she does such a great job of capturing special memories for us! ❤️ – AV



taking those extra little pictures that capture something cute

Shelby has done pregnancy photos, 4 sets of new born photos, countless extended family photos, mommy and me, life style and kid photos. She is fun, sweet and easy to get along with. She does a great job of managing a big crowd and taking those extra little pictures that capture something cute. I would highly recommend her to anyone! – Nikki Walt



made us feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera

We could not be happier with our decision to have Shelby of Zakoor Photography photograph our engagement session and wedding day. We absolutely love the photos she took for us! Shelby is very talented, and captured photographs that we will treasure forever. On our wedding day, she was very professional, organized and efficient. Shelby made us feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. She has a great eye and a very natural style of photography. After our wedding, we were fortunate to have Shelby put together an amazing photo book that showcased our big day! We have loved being able to share our photo book with our family and friends, and have received countless compliments on it. We would highly recommend Shelby of Zakoor Photography to any of our friends and family seeking a photographer. Shelby was incredible to work with, and we look forward to her capturing many more memories for us in the future! – Will and Colbey Sebben



determined to get the perfect shot

Tom and I were just reminiscing, and around this time last year we contacted you about doing photography for our wedding. We again want to thank you for the amazing job you did with our engagement and wedding photos, we cherish these photos so much. You always made us feel so comfortable and at ease during our engagement session, and on our wedding day! Your professionalism and laid-back style really helped us to enjoy these days! I have to say that I’ve never seen a photographer get themselves into so many awkward positions (not to mention dangerous) for a photo. I always think back to our engagement session, when in the dead of winter you hopped on the roof of your car, which was covered with ice and snow. I remember telling you it wasn’t worth falling just for a photo, but you were so determined to get the perfect shot. Seriously though, thank you for all your incredible talent! – Marissa and Tom McKee
