Hi there!

I'm Elli.

I've been photographing things since I was 14, and I've had the honor of professionally shooting weddings and small businesses for four years now. 

I love plants, coffee, animals and always get sorted into either Gryffindor or Hufflepuff, depending on the day. 

Outside of shooting, my time is largely spent reading, baking, collecting ideas for places to travel or simply existing my way through life with my partner and our dog. 

I photograph people for a living because I believe that memories are one of the most beautiful and important things that make us human. They shape us. They're a part of our identity, and being able to preserve and aid in creating memories is a privilege I could never have imagined. 

 

My goal is to be your photojournalist. I believe that life is made up of a thousand beautiful moments that happen organically, not just a handful of mandatory shots, and I approach both commercial shoots and weddings in this way. I'm not here to force it. I'm not here to make you look a certain way. I'm here to help it along, catch it when it happens, and deliver you proof of a split second in time that you might otherwise have forgotten.

It's an absolute honor to be considered to document your story, whether that's an engagement, a proposal, a window into your daily life, your business, or a marriage.
