I'm Your Southern California Photographer


I'm Shelby Danielle

I am a wedding & portrait photographer based in Southern California and beyond!

I started at the young age of 16 in my hometown of Orange in Orange County, California. As my photography business grew and I got married, life took me to the Chino Hills area, making me more centered to all major Southern California counties.

Here on the blog, you will see a variety of posts regarding tips for clients, education for fellow photographers, sessions & weddings, and my personal life of being a wife, mother, and business owner. To learn more about me or to see more daily adventures, follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook!
