HI, I'M ELLI!
I'm a Los Angeles wedding photographer specializing in documentary style weddings, engagements, and lifestyle photography. I have photographed close to 100 weddings and elopements over the past 7 years and have been featured in Ruffled Blog, 100 Layer Cake, The New York Times, A Practical Wedding, and Santa Barbara Weddings. I photograph weddings often from Santa Barbara to Joshua Tree but love to travel and will travel anywhere in the world to document your love.
I live for capturing the little, otherwise unnoticed moments and expressions of honest and true love. I then string all of them together to tell your story. I want to create the images of you two that you will hang above your fireplace, but even more important for my clients is to create a set of images that cause you to relive your day all over again for all the years to come. One client's testimonial really portrays what I want my clients to walk away with "The pictures she took are some of my favorites. It makes me a little emotional just thinking about it because everyone looks like they're happy, having a good time, and like we all love each other. All those things are true, of course, but to get that all so clearly from a picture is precious."
My couples are kind and caring humans. They love each other unconditionally. They are drawn to my documentary style of capturing a wedding day and feel like friends by the time the day arrives. It excites me to witness how each couple chooses to celebrate their love in their own unique way. Whether it's eloping just the three of us on the cliffs of Big Sur, or a large dinner party in the desert with all your nearest and dearest, I will be there blending in and capturing it all with a big ole grin on my face.
