Shallyn Michelle Photography

let's tell your love story

I really love what I do, but even more than that I love people! It’s so awesome to me that through this sweet little business, I get to serve + love others, while also documenting their treasured moments. I can’t even begin to tell you what an honor it is when people ask me to photograph such important milestones; and I don’t take that lightly.

My name is Shallyn and I am a wedding, engagement,  and lifestyle photographer based out of Fort Collins, Colorado. I’ve been shooting weddings for about 5 years now, and I tell you what, I really love, love. This job and the people I get to work with continually bless me and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I’m a very easy-going person, who loves to laugh and who really cares to get to know you.

Love Notes

“Having Shallyn capture our wedding day was hands down one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire planning process. She was not only incredibly easy to work with but also so much fun. George and I were laughing throughout the entire shoot before and after our wedding. We are not huge photo people but knew we wanted someone talented to capture memories from our wedding. Shallyn’s shooting style was perfect for us, she was there to capture every spontaneous moment and also gave us great direction when we needed it. Every photo we have seen so far captures us in such an authentic way; I am obsessed with every picture. They all bring back every ounce of happiness and excitement that we felt on our wedding day. She rolled with the flow when everything started later than planned and also made sure I got every group photo we had discussed beforehand even though I was all over the place. Shallyn is not only an incredibly talented photographer but also just such an amazing and authentic person to be around. I cannot say enough positive things about having Shallyn with us on our wedding day.”

– Alexis + George

“Shallyn is probably the sweetest creative person I have ever met. She is humble, soft spoken, and a delight to be around. And when she flashes that big smile of hers, you can’t help smiling back. Makes for good pictures. As a wedding photographer, I can’t imagine finding someone more equipped and capable. And she was just as pleasant after 12 hours of work as she was at the outset. You are a blessing Shallyn and a credit to your profession.

– Mike

Fun facts

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

Let's be real; all of them. It's truly such a joy to me that I don't work with one kind of person, but that I get to work with so many unique individuals and couples. It's awesome when my couples are down-to-earth and laid back, but if you're shy behind the camera, that's ok, too! My goal is to be able to capture all people in a way that authentically reflects who they are and to make them as comfortable as possible during each session. And though it's no expectation, I do really love when my couples are up for a good laugh, ready to adventure, or have great jokes + stories to share!

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

You'll probably almost always find me tearing up during the exchange of vows or the father-daughter dance, but my favorite part of the wedding is photographing the bride + groom. I love this moment because it's usually one of the first that the couple get to be together alone. And a lot of times, it feels like I kind of disappear. Capturing all of that newly married bliss is the sweetest thing ever!

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

Yes! So far, I have shot weddings in California, Oregon, Mexico, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. I love travelling and feel so honored when people invite me to adventure with them!

What are your favorite activities to do in The Rockies?

My husband and I love to go hiking, backpacking and camping with our pup! I love the mountains a lot and really enjoying exploring them and taking photos of them.
