You’re craving a real and authentic photography experience, because your wedding day is a lot more than just an opportunity for pretty pictures and a cool video. You want photographers who care about getting to know you, who want you to have an incredible experience on your wedding day, and who are excited to document it all from the inside out.

Rather than being another vendor to check off your list, we hope to gain your trust as friends so we can capture your life and love from a real, honest perspective. Our core purpose as your wedding photographers is preserving these once-in-a-lifetime moments for the decades to come, to transport you back to your wedding day every time you flip through your album. 


"Don't hesitate. Just book. Shelley and Portugal did an outstanding job making us feel comfortable the way we are. We are not models, we are not influencers. It felt less like a photo shoot and more like hanging with friends who happen to have a camera in their hands. They're so kind, approachable, relatable...not to mention, crazy creative."

Christina + Aaron

"I wish I could give Shelley and Portugal more than 5 stars. They captured our day perfectly. Their work far exceeded any expectation I had. They cared as much about our day and capturing every moment as we did."

Megan + JD

“Shelley + Portugal offered just the right amount of guidance, so that we were eased through some of the more posed photos and portraits, and their candids captured the spirit and the feeling of our day perfectly. They were kind, fun to work with, and blended right in with our guests. As a wife-and-husband team you can tell they love what they do, and are so in sync with one another.”

Natalie + Mikus

"Their passion for capturing quiet moments, love, and their service towards others is incomparable. In a business where people are not always put over profit, you will not ever have to worry about coming second if you choose Shelley + Portugal as your wedding photographers and/or videographers. "


“Not only are they creative and so so talented, but they are exceptional human beings. They even came early for our destination wedding, spent time hiking with us and our friends, and had lunch with our family. By the time our wedding day came, they felt more like friends to us! Working with them was hands down the best decision we made when planning our wedding.”

Taylor + Chris

"I wish I could give Shelley and Portugal more than 5 stars. They cared as much about our day and capturing every moment as we did."

We don't say yes to every wedding that comes our way. By taking on a limited number of weddings each year, we are able to devote the necessary time, care, and attention to each of our couples to ensure they're getting the very best experience. Because getting to know our clients is so vital to our process, we like to start out by connecting over the phone to make sure we're a good fit for each other. To get convo started, scroll down for our email contact form and tell us a little more about you, your fiancé(e), your vision for your wedding day, and why you're interested in working together. 


Wedding photography coverage starts at 6,500. Photography & highlight video combined coverage starts at 10,000. Two photographers always included. Travel outside of our local region (KY/TN) incurs additional fee.

This is so worth it.

You won't get this day back, so don't settle for less than photographers who understand what truly matters; photographers who care about you as friends and want you to have an incredible experience with the photos you're dreaming of to cherish for a lifetime.



We take a limited number of weddings every year to allow ourselves to wholly invest our care, attention, & excitement into your day. To reserve your date, start here and share your story with us:
