our approach

documenting candid moments as they unfold

Having captured over 200 weddings and countless engagements & proposals over the past 8+ years, our approach is to document candid moments as they unfold while providing direction and guidance throughout the day to create gorgeous, yet authentic images.

You won't have to worry about things like.. What should I do with my hands? Is my hair okay? Does my smile look stupid? We got your back. Pinky promise.

If you're looking for a natural, relaxed and most importantly, FUN Orlando photography & videography experience then you've come to the right place. We will do all of the heavy lifting for you on the wedding day to make sure you & your guests enjoy every moment without any added stress.

When I'm not behind a camera, you can find me in the gym, out shopping with my teenage daughter, cuddling with my mini schnauzer, or traveling the world. I also really enjoy donating my time and talent to worthy causes and local non-profit organizations and am proud to be a volunteer photographer for the Ronald McDonald House.

If you're picking up what I'm putting down, let me know-- I'd love to meet you!

I do my best work with clients that describe themselves as laid-back, open minded, and fun loving. My clients are willing to let me and the team take the wheel and are happy to come along for the ride!

my story

Incredibly personal connections, new friends, the ability to make a difference, and the flexibility to be the mom I want to be. I love what I do with every piece of my heart and I'm grateful to my clients that allow me to do what I love every day.

In 2013 after almost 7 years working as a corporate sales manager for a company I thought I'd retire from, I was truly miserable. Organizational changes in the business had left me in a place where I was no longer happy, yet felt trapped. At the end of that year I had saved up enough to up and quit my job! I was finally free-- but I had no earthly clue what I wanted to do.

On a whim, I bought a camera and figured I'd play around with taking pictures until I figured out my next move. Over the next several months I found myself engulfed in photography. I checked out the entire photography section at my local library and spent hours on end learning and practicing. Three months later, I was hired to shoot my first wedding. It was instant love!

Being a full-time photographer has given me everything I ever wanted in a job—

"Elle is a fantastic photographer and an incredible individual.

From the moment we met her I felt at ease and like I could already call her family. She has an amazing eye for detail and lighting and makes every shot amazing."

Let's be honest-- I may be the brains of the operation (humbly so!) but it takes a village to do what we do, how we do it. Although some photography + videography companies contract out their secondary photographers or videographers, I believe the special sauce lies in having a team that treats the business like it's theirs. I've been super fortunate to have been able to compile an all-star entourage over the years and they are all truly amazing.


Lead wedding videographer & video editor

He has a background in music videos and short films and brings a pretty kick-ass aesthetic to our wedding videos every time. He helps get our films out lightning fast and always brings his witty sarcasm to every event!


Second wedding photographer & videographer 

When he's not creating artsy editorial concepts he is hanging out with our team capturing weddings. He will greet you with a smile and keep it on his face all day long!


Office manager

My admin guru! She helps with scheduling, email correspondence, social media and let's be honest like a million other random invaluable tasks.


Boudoir photographer & Second Wedding Photographer

She is the best at making brides look and feel their very best with her positive energy and contagious good vibes. When she is not photographing, she will often come along as a video assistant and she also does freelance hair & makeup so flyaways have met their match!


second wedding photographer

She will be your mom's best friend and is always taking care of those tiny details that I may miss in the shuffle. She has many years of experience running her own highly successful wedding photography business.


Second wedding photographer

With an amazing eye for unique & different angles and her willingness to help out with literally anything & everything she is truly a valuable asset on the wedding day. A Florida transfer by way of Michigan, she also used to own a bridal salon so she's the master at helping with dresses!


second wedding photographer

Starting as my apprentice, he has been trained from the ground up by me personally! He knows exactly how I like things done and does an amazing job at filling in any gaps. He just recently moved here from NYC and brings his "get things done" A-game to every wedding.
