Denny & Shelley were introduced by their best friends and basically met on a blind date. It was a great match - over 40 years later they are still together and reside in Monroeville. Their very large immediate family consists of four children and their spouses, twelve grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Their family is their pride and joy and the very best part of life’s journey!
Denny grew up in Wilkinsburg moving to Sardis in 1967 and graduated from Franklin Regional High School in 1969. Shelley grew up in Mt. Pleasant and graduated in 1971 from Mt. Pleasant High School. Denny retired from PNC Bank as an Operational Risk Manager and Shelley has been working at Newlonsburg Presbyterian Church in Murrysville as the office manager for over 26 years.
Denny’s love of photography began when he was 10 years old. He shoveled snow from his neighbor’s sidewalk and asked for the Kodak box camera that was on display in their second hand store window as his payment. That camera is part of his collection today. He is a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography and continually takes training via his membership with Kelby One.
Reflections In Life Photography, LLC was started by Denny and his son Michael. They focused on weddings, high school senior, and baby photos. Shelley was involved with posing most of the formal photos. Two years ago, Michael left the company and Shelley became a partner taking her photography to another level. Today they focus on flowers, landscapes, nature, custom greeting cards, and fine art photography as a result of Denny’s love of editing in post production.
Shelley & Denny are members of the East Suburban Artist’s league. They are also Grandparent members at Phipps Conservatory where they can often be seen with their cameras enjoying the peace and beauty of various displays while honing their skills taking lots of pictures. They have put in many miles on motorcycles and always have a camera with them for photo opportunities!
