Shelley Leyland, a Wedding, Portrait and Special Event Photographer.

I create fun, engaging and unique wedding, engagement and portrait images. I love to create beautiful poignant portraits and capture fun candid photographs.

I shoot all types of photography including Weddings, Individual Portraits, Engagement Sessions, Family Photography, Children's Portraits, Executive Portraits, Actors Head shots and Senior High School photography in Florida, Oregon and Hawaii, and other destination wedding and event locations. I also have a personal passion for Fine Art Photography and I utilize that in my images.

With wedding photography, I create rich Color images and dramatic Black & White storytelling photographs. I also add a few beautifully tinted Vintage/Retro photographs, for those who like them. I care about the images I create, knowing that these will be the images you'll cherish for a lifetime. I care about you as my client, I love capturing those unique moments that make your wedding special and that you will reflect on over the years. For many of my wedding couples, I also shoot an engagement photography session, it's a great way to get to know each other.

Couples have told me a multitude of reasons for choosing me. Just about everyone has told me there was something in the emotion of the photography which spoke to them. Others have told me how easy and fun I am to work with and how relaxed they felt with me. I have gotten emails, letters and phone calls from mothers, uncles, sisters and friends telling me how much they have loved my images and how they feel when they look at them. I'm a high energy, high spirited photographer who you can entrust with all of your very special days.

Each type of photography I do, I feel this way about, including family reunion photography, anniversary photography, portrait photography, birthday photography and other special life moments that you want captured. Along with the portrait shots I take I catch the playful moments that are going on during your family reunion or birthday, the interaction between family and friends that you might not have had otherwise, so you can just relax and have fun!

Thank you for visiting my wedding photography site, now go and enjoy the photography!
