"Shelly was a great photographer to work with. I hired her for a runway/makeover event, Top Salon of the Emerald Coast, and the images were priceless. She can capture energy and movement in her images that portrayed our event better than my expectations. She helped capture the event so well that all the viewers continue to stay engaged with them image after image. She also processed the images very quick after the event and stayed in great communication with me through the entire process. I highly recommend her!"

“In my years of working with Shelly Swanger, her passion for photography is unsurpassed. She has a creative ability that allows her work far exceeds any assignment given her. Shelly's ability to capture the true essence and experience of an event is why I continue to hire her. She has an unteachable sense to capture the most perfect scene with a photo, often when it's most unexpected.”

“Shelly is incredibly talented. We met through her experience shooting musicians and artists performing live. I went on to hire her for festival photography, which is extremely difficult to shoot, requiring you catch people in candid moments and in action. She shoot the 7-10 events and the results were incredible. I've worked with her for magazine layouts as well as use all her work in promoting the 30A Songwriters Festival. Shelly is extremely professional, and creative. I look forward to continuing to use her professional photography services for my business and my clients.”
