I'm not just someone who shows up on your wedding day as a near stranger. It's my goal to truly know and love you as a couple, so I can serve you as joyfully and truly as I can.

I can’t wait to hear about all the little why’s behind your wedding day choices and even to tag along for venue walkthroughs, so we can envision it all together! And then, to show up on your most special day, smiling ear-to-ear!

I would be honored with the opportunity to make your day the most amazing experience not only for the two of you, but for your friends and family that have come to celebrate you!

How differently could you experience your wedding day with a photographer who has joyfully joined you on the journey?

Let me tell you about the Wedding Experience!

Would you believe me if I told you almost all of my clients warn me ahead of time that they are awkward in front of the camera? Ummmm, do they look awkward to you?? Yeah, I didn’t think so. 

Trust me, it is very possible to actually enjoy taking photos!! Maybe it’s the big ole excited hug I can’t help but give you at the beginning of your session that fills you with a boost of confidence or my infectious joy of literally loving what I do, but my clients literally knock it out of the park every time!

Or …. maybe they have all secretly been models and are just being humble about their skills in front of the camera. Hmmmm….

You can have images full of joy

Yes!

joy 

romance!

&

Even if you say you're "not models".

Feeling confident? Great! Let's go over The Process.

Once you complete the short contact form, I will send over my complete pricing guide and a link to my calendar availability so we can schedule a time to chat that will work with your schedule to make sure we are a good fit!

Say Hello

fill out the contact form

Then, once we have established that we might just be kindred spirits and you can’t wait to have me join you on this journey, I’ll send over the contract & invoice to finalize everything. This will officially reserve your date on my calendar and the fun can begins!

Make it Official

Now the fun begins... we start planning your engagement session.  Everything from choosing a location to helping you decide which outfits will photograph best, 'm here for it!!! I’ll also touch base about a bridal session and when we should plan it!

Engagement Session

Next, we'll start talking about your timeline to help you and your planner know approximate times to start scheduling a few of your vendor arrivals, like your florals and hair & makeup.

Let's Plan Your Timeline

A few months before your wedding day, I’ll send over a questionnaire that actually evolves into my bible for your wedding day. It covers everything like who your vendors are, any special or awkward family situations I need to know about (trust me, we all have them!), as well as help with the actual groupings for your family formal photos (helping us to be as efficient as possible come wedding day).

Questionnaire

Though we have talked about it a lot throughout the process, as we start getting closer to the big day we’ll meet for your venue walkthrough (whether I have shot at your venue or not) and really explore your personal vision and some of your favorite spots throughout the venue.

A Venue Walkthrough

On your wedding day, I am there to 100% serve the two of you, your friends and family. You can relax knowing it's all taken care of, while I capture the big and small moments of your amazing day.

Wedding Day

Your Beautiful Gallery

Once the party is over and everyone has gone home but you're still on cloud nine you can get excited about reliving your day over and over. I’ll send over your full gallery of high-resolution digital images within 6-8 weeks. However, I never want you to have to wait that long so throughout that time, I’ll send you sprinkled glimpses ...

keep reading ...

Your Beautiful Gallery

... like 24 hour later sneak peeks! Then about two weeks later a slideshow set to music, filled with a few more peeks so you have glimpses of moments from throughout your entire wedding day to remind you just how beautiful your day was and how much fun you and your guests had!

I know you have a ton of information coming at you and a ton of ideas swarming in your head.

After all, you've dreamt about your wedding day for as long as you can remember. You’ve discovered Pinterest is both a blessing and a curse, am I right??

But take a deep breath, relax and savor the most important detail because, fact, you are going to be marrying the love of your life!!!!

So don’t stress over the little details and know I will be there throughout the journey to help in any way I can.

I’m invested in serving the two of you and your families on your wedding day, the days leading up to it and long after it!!

Even before I show up with a big smile and an even bigger hug, I have prayed for you. I have prayed for the Lord to give me eyes to see, guide, and capture what is most important to you. I have prayed you would see His light through me and be filled with confidence and encouragement.

So you see, you can relax and have fun in front of the camera, we got this!!

You can trust I will work both joyfully and tirelessly serving the two of you to not only give you beautiful images, but to make it a fun experience along the way. 

Even before I show up with a big smile & an even bigger hug, I have prayed for you.

I am NOT the photographer that just shows up, shoots, and leaves. 

Are you in? While you're here, why don't you look through some of my favorite wedding galleries!

My sweet couples tell me time and time again how comfortable and at ease they feel in front of my camera.

Yes, the same couples who warned about their "awkwardness". It's literal music to my ears when I hear  that my genuine excitement and love for what I do is contagious, and that I was able to make photography such a memorable experience for my clients!

The secret? It's building a relationship with you two!

I love having you in front of my camera, but I also genuinely enjoy getting to know you, spending time with you and learning about what is important to the two of you. All of which only makes the time you're in front of my camera even sweeter!!  

I’ve learned from experience that to naturally capture beautiful & joyful images that really tell your story, we have to start at the very beginning of this journey we are on together.

Hear about the wedding experience from my sweet clients

"I am incredibly grateful for Ellen and her amazing photography skills! My fiancé and I had such a fun time getting our pictures taken at our engagement shoot. We had only met Ellen that day and she made us so comfortable and really broke the ice. We were laughing and having a fun time taking pictures, not long into the shoot.

I am beyond excited to have her there on our wedding day ... her pictures are phenomenal and her personality is even better. Such a joy meeting her and so glad we will be working together on our wedding day. She is beyond talented and such a sweet person!"

Her photos are phenomenal & her personality is even better."

"There are not enough words to describe how amazing Ellen is! She truly went above and beyond for us. She was an asset throughout the planning process and we absolutely love our pictures. My husband hates taking pictures, but he had so fun with Ellen's bubbly personality. We got our pictures back before my friends who were married months before us. We are so grateful for Ellen and her team. I cannot recommend her highly enough"

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Ellen is!"
