I'm Shelby & for me, photography is about celebrating life's biggest joys and preserving those moments in time for generations to come. Growing up, I was always drawn to photography not only as a creative outlet but as a tool to document different chapters of life. You can find me constantly filling up albums & picture frames with my favorite memories. I love photographing people organically & genuinely while gently guiding them through posing along the way. Providing my clients with images that are indicative of the time in their life is a goal I strive for while keeping their images timeless & classic.
I am born & raised in Victoria, Texas and I am so blessed to be living in my hometown pursuing a career that I absolutely LOVE. I have been married to my handsome husband, Nick, for about 3 years now and we love spending time together with our Texas Heeler, Cooper. On a wedding day I always get butterflies on behalf of my couples because I remember that wonderful feeling of giddy excitement on my own wedding day. Your wedding day is about YOU and I will be there to celebrate you and tell your story thoughtfully & thoroughly through my lens.
The perfect client for me is someone who appreciates an eye for detail & cherishes the in between candid moments. Someone who embraces a blend of posed and natural instances.
I love working with people/couples who are genuine and eager to trust me with telling their story through the images we capture together. I always feel inspired when the love behind the images is true!
It’s the best feeling when clients become new friends as well!
Hi, I’m Hanna! I was born & raised in Victoria, Tx. This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I love it here! Living in a smallish town & raising a family has been a goal of mine for years. I’m happy to say, it’s currently my reality! I have a son who is 5, he keeps me on my toes, loves his pop-pops (suckers) & is always ready for an outdoor adventure! I have been married to my husband for almost 9 years now, he’s always making us laugh & can smoke a mean rack of ribs. Let's not forget our pup Marceline. We rescued her at 3 weeks & she is the biggest sweetheart ever.
I have always been outgoing, social & creative. Once I had my son I struggled with being a new mom & finding myself again. Looking for an outlet to help remind myself of who I was & wanting to explore more creativity I found photography. Being able to connect with clients is like a breath of fresh air! I love all the smiles, kisses, laughs & sometimes even tears I get to see from behind the lens. Gallery delivery is my fave. Revealing the beauty I see to my clients themselves is so rewarding & truly one of my favorite things about my job.
My dream client is someone who is down to earth and genuine. When it comes to taking photos, they are ready for giggles, trust the process, and are cool with trying some new things.
What's most important is a relationship with every client.
I always feel connected with my clients & leave shoots feeling like I made a new friends. I’m grateful to be a part of these milestones and can't wait to document yours!
I describe myself as a nerdy wife and hot mess mom. I am a bubbly goofy hopeless romantic. Taylor Swift, especially the Lover album, gets me in my feels for a romantic wedding day and then I get out all my extra energy by jamming to some Fall Out Boy on my way home.
I am a cinephile and have a movie collection that is 500 and counting! I quote from movies daily as well as from The Office, Parks and Rec, and a dash of the latest TikTok trend.
I am a Hufflepuff, Whovian, and relapsed Twihard.
I have one tattoo that is the page markers from the Harry Potter series and is the mirror to my cousin Ashley's tattoo. She is the one who introduced me to Harry Potter so it seemed fitting we have matching tattoos.
My perfect date would be dinner, dessert and a movie or Netflix and Chill...as long as the chill stands for ice cream!
The perfect client for me is a couple who doesn't take themselves too seriously! They're not afraid to laugh and have a bit of fun in front of the camera. Their perfect date is a night in together (cue the movies and popcorn!). They are are lovers of classic, romantic photos with a few whimsical touches and pops of color.

We absolutely loved working with Ink & Willow. Our primary photographer was Amber and we worked with her for our engagements, bridals, and wedding photos. She was INCREDIBLE.
Amazing and stress free!
I loved working with everyone they were extremely helpful & were great to work with. They were flexible & super sweet.
Hiring Ink & Willow Photography for my wedding was the best thing I did. The owner Jenny is very responsive with the emails and keeps you up to date throughout. She is your go-to wedding gal. The photographers we were set up with were Amber & Derrick for the wedding day. Amber and Derrick made a great team and I'm so glad they were able to capture my big day. The quality and clarity of the photos captured were excellent and I could look at them all day LONG!
Shelby and Hanna made such a great team and captured SO MANY sweet memorable moments that we will cherish forever!

We are so happy we chose Ink and Willow! We now have picture perfect memories to cherish the most perfect day!
We’ve never hired a professional photographer before and I am so thankful for my friend referring me to Ink and Willow! Not only were they super professional and organized, but so friendly and made us feel so comfortable. Our pictures were absolutely beautiful and I recommend them to everyone! I can’t wait to hire them again to capture our next life milestone.
I wanted someone who would be personal, fun & easy to work with. Hanna & Shelby were MORE THAN GREAT. I formed a special bond with Hanna, she really made me feel beautiful & even got teary eyed during bridals. She knew how much it meant to me to have my mothers picture in my photos with me. She made that moment so special for me, I still get emotional about it. Thank you so much for being so great!
The photographers were so responsive, professional, and all the photos turned out so great! I love the light airiness of the style. They were so organized and prepared, so everything went so smoothly! I would recommend them to any bride in the area!
