say hello! »

I am a lover of beauty in all its forms. From a couple deeply in love to the bond shared between family members, I adore these moments and am always humbled when clients choose me to capture their forever memories.

When I'm not behind the lens, you can find me spending time with my family. I have two littles that keep me busy and I wouldn't have it any other way. To relax, I watch and re-watch (and re-watch!) the Office. I also love listening to True Crime podcasts while editing - I find the happiness of my photos coupled with the dark narrating of crime podcasters really balances me out!

My photography philosophy is simple - I strive to capture editorial images worthy of a magazine, images that will stand the test of time. I provide a mix of posed and candid photos, everything from that "must-have" shot to the little moments in between. 

I truly can't wait to hear from you - so what are you waiting for? Say hello! 

I'm Ella • Your wedding & family photographer extraordinaire

I'm Excited You're Here!

Here's a snapshot into my world.

A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life

I want adventure in the great wide somewhere.

I love traveling anywhere and everywhere and photographing all the beautiful things along the way.  My bucket list destination is New Zealand, as it brings together my love of gorgeous places and my obsession with the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy! 

My favorite places in the States have to be Southern California and New Orleans, though I've got a lot more exploring to do!


Obviously family is the most important thing to me! It always has been; my own family is in Michigan but that doesn't stop them from coming to visit on an almost monthly basis. My husband's family is in Ireland and we love hopping across the pond to visit. 

I have two littles that I adore. They're just fantastic, silly, smart, and surprise me every day.

My Favorite Things

Ella was a dream to work with! From the moment I first contacted her about hiring her for our wedding, I knew I made the right choice. She is so personable and outgoing and just so easy to get along with. I was nervous when we did our engagement shoot that I would feel uncomfortable or awkward, but as soon as I met Ella in person it all went away. She is so easy to be around and so easy to work with. She knows exactly what she's doing and she is amazing at it!

She just shot our wedding this past weekend, and she is just amazing. When you're with her you don't feel like getting pictures taken is a chore. It's truly a blast to shoot with Ella and I can't wait to see how magical our wedding pictures come out!


Ella is such a pleasure to work with. It was so hard for us to get together due to busy schedules and distance. My wedding day was the first day we met, and she captured every single moment as if we talked about what I wanted. She is such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for any photography needs!
