Shelbie is a Louisiana wedding and portrait photographer with a twist of romance & timelessness through both film & digital photographs.

let's connect



new orleans wedding photographers

Your story is unique.  The way you met, the challenges you've gone through, the memories you have made so far..  Every couple has been through their own hills and valleys up to this point when you're engaged and excited to plan the perfect wedding day (no matter if that's a classic Catholic ceremony or a small elopement on the side of a mountain).  My job is to document your love story in a way that freezes this sweet time of your life in the most timeless, whimsical, light-hearted, natural way.  Through film photography and my love for the sacred gift of marriage, I focus on your story and who you are as a couple.  Your marriage is one of a kind and so should be the photographs that will tell generations about it.

why choose shelbie louviere photography


I thrive off of couples and weddings and may cry during first dances - I truly see the beauty and reverence in all of my clients' relationships.

hopeless romantic

True film photography is rare, but I fell in love with the art of film and it has been amazing for both me and my clients!

film photography

Although film is my focus, I shoot digital and match with film scans to make sure your sessions and wedding day is documented in both formats.

Wedding collections include a second photographer so that your day is fully covered and you can rest easy knowing we can be relied on.
