South Bend Wedding Photography

2015 Wedding Season | Shelby Chari Photography | South Bend Wedding Photographer

I cannot believe this is my job. I often find myself thinking about how I am the luckiest person on earth to be able to capture people in love for a living. This has been my busiest year yet and I could not have asked for better people to spend it with. Each and every one of these wedding days was so perfect and unique, the perfect representation of each couple and their love for one another. A big special thank you to my AWESOME team too (Wes, Rebecca, & Michelle!) I simply could not have done it without all your help and hard work! My heart is so so full and I can hardly wait to see what 2016 has in store for Shelby Chari Photography.

Lisa & Nick { South Bend Engagement Session at Notre Dame | South Bend Wedding Photographer | Shelby Chari Photography }

I first met Lisa & Nick earlier this year after being referred to them by a friend to photograph their wedding day in just 8 months. One thing I really love about including engagement sessions in all of my wedding packages is that it gives me time to get to know my bride & groom before their big day! Not only does it help them to be comfortable with my camera in their face but they get to know me a little more too! Being a wedding photographer is more than just showing up on someone's wedding day and taking photos. I want to CAPTURE and tell the story of your love on one of the biggest days of your lives. I pride myself in creating a relationship with my clients before, during, and after their weddings. Lisa & Nick are big Notre Dame fans so shooting their session on campus was absolutely perfect and we could not have asked for a more beautiful day! 

Packaging {South Bend Wedding Photographer | Shelby Chari Photography}

If you've ever had a phone crash on you and lost all of your precious photos...This post is for you. In this digital world we now call home, Paper prints of photos are harder and harder to come by. We are so entranced by digital files on our computers, phones, tablets, etc that printing photos seems tedious. But if you have ever had something crash on you without having extra copies, you know the heartbreak. Those one of a kind moments, forever gone. Thats why every wedding package I offer includes a flash drive of your images along with an online gallery all set up to help you order prints. These flash drives I have specially designed by USB Memory Direct, can be used to print at your convenience or they can be kept in safe keeping as a back up. I love being able to make my clients lives just a little bit easier. Also pictured are my one of a kind wedding albums. These GORGEOUS white leatherette albums feature 20+ pages of your beautiful day on thick lay flat pages. What better way to reminisce than to pull out your album and take a trip down memory lane?
