"A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know."

Shanelle Jacobs is an portrait and concert photographer based in Washington, DC — but she'll take any opportunity to travel!
Born in Bronx, New York, Shanelle Jacobs has resided in various states along the east coast. Shanelle started her photography career in 2014 by simply picking up her first point-and-shoot camera and a photography book, then going outside to capturing images of the world around her. What started out as a hobby and turned into something more. Shanelle is now a full-time photographer, working with up-and-coming models, artists, local fashion lines, and documenting a variety of events. Shanelle’s philosophy for Shanelle Jacobs Photography is simple: “ I look to create great memories by bring out every emotion with each photo that I take. If I haven't done that, then I haven't done my job. I intend to have every session and event to be better than the last.”
When she's not taking photos, you'll find her volunteering, exploring, or spending time with family.
Her work focuses on capturing a moment in time, whether it's portraiture, lifestyle imagery, or just the perfect light.
Always experimenting with new techniques, She is equally comfortable with analog and digital technologies, and use both according to the needs of the project.
