film + portraits

for the undeniably in love and adventurous in spirit

Every person has a story that's worth being told. Whether it's through photo or video, there's a lot of power in trusting someone to show the world who you are.

Through video, Dear Heart Films walks alongside you throughout your journey to bring your vision to life. Allow me to tell your story the way you want it to be told. We can work together to adapt the film to the needs of your business, your event, or your life.

Dear Heart Films specializes in short films, event promos, and wedding videos. No matter what is being filmed, I take the utmost care to ensure you are getting the video you deserve.


Through every photo session, Dear Heart Films strives to show each personality through the camera. Who you are, as a senior, a young professional, or a couple matters. I want to invest in you as much as you invest in me as a photographer.

I want you to be as comfortable as possible during your session and I'll do whatever that takes. Beforehand, let's go out and get coffee and talk about your hopes, questions, and needs – from outfits to locations to posing. I'm here for you.





"Shelby is absolutely great to work with, very sweet and made my fiancé and I feel very comfortable during our whole shoot!! She took our engagement photos and they all came out so beautiful. Thank you Shelby!!"

"Oh my gosh, Dear Heart Films created AMAZING images for my college senior portraits! I usually get nervous when taking pictures but Shelby made the whole process a breeze and so much fun! She made me feel comfortable and guided me on what to do in order to create the most flattering images. She is very friendly, professional, quick, and knows what she is doing."



"Shelby is an absolute dream to work with! She is kind, patient, and great at capturing wonderful moments. She takes our family pictures every year, and does an amazing job. We always include our dog (who can be a handful...) but Shelby finds her cutest moments for us to treasure forever. HIGHLY recommend!"

Shannon & Steven


"Courage, dear heart."
