Based in Northern Kentucky, Goldshell Photography is a team of three photographers- John Weigold, Michelle (Curtin) Weigold, and Rachel Curtin.

The name Goldshell is a mixture of our names, and we hope that you enjoy the combination of styles we all bring to the table as well!



When John was a little kid, he used to tell people that he wanted to be a photographer when he grew up. His passion stuck with him, and its something he still loves. When he’s not working full time as a market-research analyst with a MBA, he enjoys doing anything outside- be it hiking, running, or mountain biking. His family owns a tree farm, and he loves spending time out in the woods. He also has a strong love of traveling, and will try any food once!


Michelle has always been known as “the friend who brings the camera to everything” and after taking an old-fashioned film development class in college, she realized the art of photography was something she truly loved. Besides taking pictures, Michelle loves creating art, family tree research, skiing, her cats and dog, and traveling internationally. She has spent several months living in Valencia, Spain and is a high-school Spanish teacher.
