About Dear Heart Film + Portraits

Shelby Hunter

Photographer + Cinematographer

I created Dear Heart Film + Portraits in college when I realized just how much I love photographing other people. It started with fun-loving seniors and now has developed into capturing adventurous couples who are so unashamedly in love.

From the day we sign our contract, we're a team and I'll be there for you with whatever you need. I help with creating your timeline, providing location and outfit guidance for your engagement shoot, and answering any questions you have along the way.

    Shelby was absolutely amazing! From the beginning, she was organized, professional, and made us so incredibly comfortable. Her photos are amazing compositionally, and she was great at directing us to get the best shots. We chose her because her photos have a natural vibe and warm tone. We knew we could rely on her to capture the day perfectly. So happy we chose her, highly recommend!

  • Shelby and her team are the best for weddings!!!

    We just had our wedding on 11/17/2023 and I cannot say enough amazing things about Shelby and her team who worked with us on our big day! From the very beginning Shelby was literally amazing, she is super supportive, kind, and organized. When we first got engaged, I talked with a few different photographers over email but Shelby was the only one I felt like matched our style, vibes, and her personality was also a great fit for us. When we did the intro zoom call, I felt like we were a great fit! My husband and I are more on the casual side of things for photography, never big fans of posing for the cameras but Shelby made us feel comfortable during our engagement session so I knew she was the right fit and I couldn’t wait for the wedding photos! Fast forward almost 1.5 years later, Shelby created detailed schedules and met with us a few times to go over the details of the wedding day. She has super detailed forms that you get to fill out to make sure you get everything you want on the day of. I will say, the schedule that she made was SUPER helpful, I sent it to Hair/MUA as well as my bridal party so everyone knew where and when to be at certain times throughout the day. Finally it was the big day! Shelby was scoping out the venue early and started taking the detail shots (dresses, perfume, rings, etc)! We also had a second photographer and videography included in our package. What I loved most about our experience with Shelby is that she was just a calm and confident presence during our big day. I feel like sometimes people get flustered, nervous, jittery, etc with everything going on but Shelby was there for us whether it be cheering us on to get the perfect shot, encouraging us to get that kiss, directing family members so we didn’t have to, or holding on to our tissues for all the happy tears. Shelby also is mindful of what YOU (the couple) want on your big day. If you change your mind about certain poses or things you want to do throughout the night, no big deal, Shelby goes with the flow! I loved all of the natural poses that she put us in and we are literally IN LOVE with all the sneak peeks she sent us. We can’t wait to see the entire gallery as well as our wedding video in a few months! Shelby, thank you for everything you and your team did, you are so incredibly talented and amazing! I would HIGHLY recommend using Shelby at Dear Heart Films for your wedding!! 100000/10!!
