About

Our Photographers

At JayLynn Studios, we take a unique approach in all of our photography projects to better match our clients’ varying needs. We know full well that our clients each have their own unique experiences and individual preferences, which require a team of flexible photographers ready to capture their perfect moments. Whether it’s to capture the magic of your wedding, celebrate your senior year at school, or simply to document the firsts of your newborn, trust our photographers in Salt Lake City to preserve these memories for you.

Our studio has been around since 1906. That’s four generations of photography experience in our studio. We have the necessary experience, training, and eye for detail that make us unmatched specialists at what we do! We’ve conducted a wide range of photo shoots spanning from traditional, casual, elegant, specialty, group, business, unusual, outrageous or adorable. We know exactly how best to capture you at your finest, without breaking your budget!

We strive to make sure that every photo shoot is successful on all fronts, including your enjoyment during the process. By making each session fun, personal, and in-line with our client’s specifications and expectations, we ensure that all of our customers go home satisfied and proud of the finished product.

After the shoot, each print is then hand-finished by our specialists with fine retouching and finishing, so each portrait leaves JayLynn Studios with the professional quality look you came to JayLynn’s for.

Kent Shelton

Hi, my name is Kent Shelton. I am your photographer at JayLynn Studios. I create imagery for discerning clients in Salt Lake City, throughout the state of Utah and beyond. I am a Master Photographer, Photographic Craftsman, and a PPA Certified Professional Photographer.

I specialize in portraiture.

My returning clients enjoy working with me for two main reasons:
1- I am easy to get along with. I enjoy listening to your ideas and I will always do my best to capture what you are envisioning. I understand that getting the best images from a professional photographer often involves developing a strong relationship of trust. I work with professional athletes and high profile business people who expect privacy. I’ll never share your images without your permission.

2- Amazing images. I love what I do and my dedication to my craft shows in my images and in the industry honors I receive. In January of 2018 I was nominated for a GIA (Grand Imaging Award) in the General Portrait Category. Out of 5800 entries from professional photographers across the globe in the International Photographic Competition, my image was chosen as one of the top ten portraits.
In 2010 I received the IPPA  – Photographer of the Year Award for having the best four images entered in the annual photographic competition that year.
