Shelby & Andrew

When I first started my business and started posting on Instagram I never knew the impact that it would have on me. I have been able to have so many incredible opportunities and have been able to meet so many amazing people through this app and Shelby & Andrew are just two of them.

Shelby and Andrew actually won my first giveaway on Instagram back when I first hit 1,000 followers (ah, how time flies). Shelby had said that she had never won anything and they had never gotten their photos taken before so it was all the more fun. When discussing about what they wanted for this shoot, they said they wanted their photos to be different and were okay with experimenting (so off we went...).

The session was so much fun and Shelby & Andrew are an absolute dream to shoot for. Since it was a beautiful fall day in Rochester, Michigan, we were able to use the fall foliage to our advantage and really make something fun & unique, just like they wanted. We decided to experiment with flash and although I had never shot engagement photos with flash before, the whole second half of their session was full of flash photography and it turned better than I could have imagined.

Overall, this session couldn't have been more perfect. Shelby had even recently taken up photography so we had even more in common! Instagram has led me to connecting to so many of my extraordinary people and even some of my current friends and I am so happy to have met Andrew and Shelby through it.

Photos By Gayle does more than just take photos of people. Rather, it is capturing moments of LOVE and HAPPINESS. Singing to the skies, dancing in a field, smiles that hurt because they’re so big. There is nothing else I would rather be doing than photographing these unique details that make you and your significant other a couple.
