Sheryl Kelley

Get to know me

The idea of preserving a memory not just for a lifetime but forever is such an incredible thought; it’s almost like a magical power that we, as creative artists, possess.

I tear up at your moments and treat your day as if it were my own. This causes me to never break and to always push myself to get the absolute best possible shots for you!

Capturing your special day is my favorite part of this job but a close second is seeing all of my couples again and being there for their beautiful milestones. Whether it’s an anniversary, a birth, or anything else – my most enjoyable days are truly the ones spent with our amazing couples. 🙂

What is the most heartwarming thing you’ve ever seen?
Videos of dogs being rescued… I ugly cry while watching these and can’t even help it! 

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
Anything that scares them.

Why did you decide to do the work you are doing now?
I shot a wedding and was hooked. I knew instantly that was what I was meant to do. “Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.”

There are two types of people in this world. What are the two types?
“Those who like Neil Diamond and those who don’t.” …Those who have seen “What about Bob” and those who haven’t 😉

If you could convince everyone in the world to do one thing at one point in time, what would that thing be?
Just stop and enjoy life. So often, we are thinking about the future way too much and we forget to savor the present moments (I am SO guilty of this!)

What’s your dream job?
I’m doing it – I get to enjoy the best day of your life with you then I go back through all of those memories and smile from ear to ear. Essentially, that is 99% of my job and I’m so grateful for our amazing couples who make my dream a reality every day. Because of all of you I can say I’m doing what I love FOR A LIVING – incredible!

What would be some of the most annoying things about having yourself as a roommate?
My “plans” to clean and my confusing need to binge watch bad Christmas movies all December long (I have no control over this addiction, lol)

What’s something that happened or something that someone said that changed how you view the world?
A motivational speaker who shared this message: Change your attitude, change your life.

What’s your most embarrassing childhood memory?
Getting stuck in a child’s swing at the age of 12. I was at a church picnic and they had to use the grease from the turkey on my legs to get me out. I couldn’t look at my friends (that’s right, I had friends, I realize with this story that may be a bit hard to believe, ha) and I just about wanted to die when I was strewn over my youth pastor’s shoulder while everyone tried to pull the swing off me.

That moment that still sticks with you after all these years. Let it out.
I feel the child’s swing story is applicable here too, hahaha.

Kind words

“Hiring you guys was absolutely a no brainer!!!! I’m still in awe by how great you guys were on our special day and absolutely love the photos you captured!! Such a genuine and honest photography company! Sheryl was like my mini wedding planner, too! She helped me out so much in developing a timeline! I can’t thank SB Photography enough!”

-Corinna and Andrew


“Absolutely loved SB photography & Design! They are so wonderful! Sheryl helped me with more than just the photography! She also helped me set up my wedding timeline! They were wonderful to work with and very affordable! Can’t go wrong with SB photography!”
-Corinna and Andrew

“SB Photography helped make my wedding dreams come true! I have no hesitation giving 5 stars for each of these categories. Sheryl was so quick to respond to every question I had with the upmost kindness and professionalism, and reached out to me when she needed to make sure everything would go the way I wanted. Both photographers (aka Taylor and Sheryl) were just magical in knowing when/where/how to get the perfect shots. The most amazing thing I rave about their service is that not only did I end up with flawless photos of myself and my husband, our bridal parties and families, we also got TONS of pictures of our guests both with and without us in them, posed and candid. This didn’t take at all away from the classic wedding pictures as we got more than enough of those, but having all these other pictures documenting ourselves and our guests throughout the night is something I’ve never seen done before to this level – and I’ve been to a lot of weddings!! On top of that, they give you all the digital copies without watermark so you can do whatever you please with them on social media, email to guests, print, etc. This increased the value by a million in my mind – and the price was already unbeatable!! We will cherish SB and our photos forever!!!”

-Lauren and Joshua

“Sheryl, Adam, and Jessica were an absolute dream to work with for our engagement photos, wedding planning process, and photographing our wedding on August 4th. I have never dealt with a better photography team than them, they are absolutely amazing to work with. Sheryl was always prompt in responding to any and all questions and seriously felt like she was my wedding planner too with how much she helped me with our wedding timeline, it was so helpful! Also, the fact that they take so much time to get to know you and your family and friends. Their attention to detail before the wedding and getting a questionnaire and list of must-have photos was incredible and let us relax and enjoy the wedding because we had confidence in knowing they would capture every moment, and they absolutely did! Our wedding photos were returned to us so quickly, every image is perfection and we are going to have such a hard time picking which ones to get printed. There is no doubt that the SB Photography team is the best in the area, and will capture every moment of your wedding perfectly, I will continue to recommend them and use them for all of our future photo sessions! :)”

-Jenny and Matthew

“Lucas and I want to thank Sheryl & Molly so much for helping out and capturing our special day. They were there before we were at the church and were already capturing pictures, staying late into the night. I really enjoyed the wedding questionnaire they had us fill out before our wedding to make sure every aspect was captured. Even bringing up some ideas that I hadn’t previously thought about. 

I also want to thank them for getting all the pictures we wanted as the ceremony started later than we anticipated. They were very organized getting the family photos captured along with making the whole process seem easy. They adjusted easily to any pictures we came up with too. 

I loved both Sheryl & Molly’s personalities; they seemed like they were another pair of guests we invited; like we had known them for years. I received numerous compliments on how people noticed the photographers but they blended in so well with everyone else. Sheryl & Molly were everywhere at our wedding! 

I am so thankful that we were able to have you guys capture our wedding day!

And Sheryl, thank you also for taking our engagement photos. We love them and as you could see, we used ALL of them in our sign-in book. We have received multiple compliments on how our engagement photos look. I will be recommending you guys to everyone looking for a wedding photographer!”

-Lindsey & Lucas

“We are so sorry for the delayed response. Please don’t think that’s a reflection of our thoughts on the pictures, because it’s absolutely not! We LOVE each and every photo your team took on our big day. We can’t get enough of them and our friends and family feel the same! We’ve had SO many compliments already!! Again, we can’t thank you and your team enough for perfectly capturing our day. From the intimate and romantic photos of just us, to the fun dancing and hugging photos with friends and family, you seamlessly captured so much of both our personalities, along with the relationships/bonds we share with loved ones. Thank you so much!”

-Mariah & Jordan

“Our photographers were Sheryl and Ben!! Both were absolutely amazing. We worked with Sheryl since day one, she did our engagement photos as well as our wedding. She made us feel comfortable while she was taking photos of us as well as feeling comfortable opening up to her on what we liked and what we did not like. I (the bride) can sometimes be a little controlling and Sheryl was amazing with following all of my lists and checking all of my boxes, but she also helped push me out of my comfort zone and those are some of my favorite photos!

We hadn’t met Ben until the day of our wedding and truthfully could not imagine our wedding without him. We enjoyed working with him so much, he has an amazing energy and personality. All of the groomsmen loved working with Ben. I would highly recommend SB Photo to anyone!”

-Bailey & Dustin

“Thank you so much for sending these over! Considering how many you took and how much work went into them, I’m impressed with how quickly you got them back to us. They look absolutely perfect! Thank you so much to you and Ben for all your hard work on our special day, and thank you to you, Adam, for your patience in answering questions and talking with us to set up a schedule leading up to the day. We’re so excited to share these photos with everyone and are so happy with how they turned out!!”

-Nicole & Chris

“I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and that’s exactly the case with SB Photography and Design. We originally had booked a different photographer but they had to cancel on us which looking back now I am so incredibly grateful for because it lead us to Sheryl and Will. From our very first meeting, communication leading up to our wedding and the day of our wedding – I seriously couldn’t have asked for more! Not only did Sheryl and Will take pictures of our wedding, but they also had super helpful planning documents and day of timeline information AND the best part is how they kept us on track the day of! We really couldn’t have done it without them and are so appreciative of all the hard work and hours they have put into our photos!! If you’re looking for great photographers but even more thank that just all around good people then look no more! Give them a call and set up the meeting, you won’t be disappointed!!!”

-Katelynn & Nick


“We had the absolute pleasure of working with Sheryl and Henk for our wedding. They did not disappoint. All the reviews that you read about SB being so wonderful are true! Both photographers were attentive and professional. Our photos look amazing and we have gotten so many compliments on them. I shared my Pinterest board of picture ideas with Sheryl, and she came with all the pictures printed off in a binder the day of our wedding. She made sure she got all our picture ideas and more. We highly recommend SB Photography and Design to any couple looking for a photographer!”

-Brittany & Jerry

“We would like to thank YOU for everything you did for us on our big day. We are so glad you enjoyed spending time and capturing moments with our friends and family. Our wedding day was perfect to us and it wouldn’t have been as great as it was without you and your team. Even with the snowy change of plans – making the wedding party group shots seemingly impossible, I appreciate you pushing me to take the photos. The “blizzard photos” as I like to call them are already something we can look back and laugh about because what were the odds of all that snow on the last Saturday of April!! It’s a memory to us and all of our guests that made our day so unique and I’m so glad you were able to capture it.

Thank you so much again – you guys were such a big part of making our big day so amazing!”

-Kristin & Garrett

“Omg thank you so much! We got the email when I was just about to start working out and I attempted to continue to work out but was so distracted I left so I could see all the pictures!! I absolutely love them, you guys did an amazing job, I couldn’t have imagined our day without you & Molly! Not only were your talents outstanding but how nice & personable you were made the day even better – you guys are truly amazing and I’m so happy to have met you both. I’m so happy we found you, as with any further life moments, we will most definitely be using you guys to capture the moments, as I can’t imagine trusting anyone else with those precious moments.

P.S.- we will be posting so many pictures on Facebook (as I obviously can’t narrow down my favorites since you guys did such an amazing job, they’re all amazing). Honestly, I can’t thank you all enough for everything & taking so many amazing pictures! I’ve already gone through them once, but let’s be honest, I’m going to go through them so many times!”

-Dana & Austin

“Wow!! 😍 I knew the photos would be amazing but these are absolutely incredible! We are having such a hard time choosing our favorites! We will be here swooning over these pics for the foreseeable future. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!”

-Blair & Luke

“We wanted to reach out and THANK YOU for our AMAZING wedding photos! You captured every moment of our day; when we were looking through these photos we were reliving every moment. You both have been such a blessing and we can’t thank you enough. You captured so many memorable moments from our wedding day and we were blown away when we saw the photos. Our family members and friends were also blown away and everyone couldn’t say enough positive words about you both. You made our wedding day smooth and incredibly stress free. Your communication during the day was phenomenal, you both had such great attitudes, and we are so honored that you could share our day with us. Matthew and I live in Michigan now and I can tell you without a doubt that when we have a need for professional photos, we will be scheduling a visit home and will be working with you ladies. We will be telling all of our family and friends to work with you because truthfully we feel that you are the best photographers in Wisconsin!”
