Life & Work with Shelby Fannin

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shelby Fannin.

Hi Shelby, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Hi! We are Shelby and Elizebeth. We own Vow Collective, a Luxury Wedding Photography business located in Nashville, TN. We serve clients in Nashville and beyond!

After working in the wedding industry for several years, and seeing all types of weddings, we realized there was something too impersonal and uptight about the client-photographer relationship. So we decided to take a different approach, join our forces, and create a company centered around people, and serving them well.

Through mutual trust and connection, we find out what’s important to our clients, and capture each wedding as the unique and beautiful celebration that it is!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Starting a business with a partner was tricky at first because we had both previously independently owned our own businesses.

Through many meetings with each other, we learned how to pivot and be flexible for the sake of growing our business. Having a partner has been the best experience!

We founded our business on trust and communication, so we try our best to stay true to our principles.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
We are a wedding photography team of women from Nashville, TN. Collectively, we have over 15 years in the industry and have photographed hundreds of weddings.

Our guarantee is to reassure each client that they are seen, heard, valued, and effortlessly captured through our elevated and seamless process. We have a strong passion for people and are humbled that we get to make a career out of our passion.

We adore chasing sunsets, and capturing connection is our joy. We live for those in-between moments and we are committed to being your biggest hype girls!

When you book us as your photographers, you can expect us to create an atmosphere that is uniquely tailored to you and the energy of your relationship. We strive to make each interaction special, by focusing on who you are both individually and together and bringing that to life through our lens.

Our goal is to deliver you a beautiful gallery that brings you right back into those once in lifetime kind of moments. Every gallery has a variety of classic and timeless portraits as well as candid, in-the-moment captures.

Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
Through our years of experience, we pride ourselves on being prepared for any scenario.

Whether its the need for our emergency kit, clear umbrellas, a shoulder to cry on, boutonnière pinning skills, our extensive gear for most lighting situations, a confident voice during family portraits, or your biggest advocate for the biggest day of your dreams – WE GOT YOU!

We approach every client differently. We want to find out what about your day is most YOU. If details are your thing, we want to make them shine! If family portraits are the most important thing to you, we want to carve out plenty of time for different family combos.

If the receiving party is your favorite part, you bet we’ll be in the center of the dance floor! We are here for each part of your wedding, and how it represents you as a couple!
