For the madly in love
And WILD at heart

I'm here to photograph those who value honesty over perfection. Love isn't perfect in and of itself, it's messy at times. It's vulnerable.. It's honest. It's raw. It's real. It's loud at times. And quiet in others. It's intimate. It brings out the real you. It challenges you. It strengthens you at times and weakens you in others. It's a plethora of emotions all at once. It's vast. I'm here to photograph that love. The love that fights for each other every day, chooses each other even when things get tough. That love deserves to be documented. Your love deserves to be documented.

for the "do it your own way" lovers. the messy lovers. the live in the moment lovers. the spontaneous lovers. the drop it like its hot lovers. the "all in" lovers.

Ellie is creative, easy going, and so much fun to work with! I can't even begin to express my gratitude and adoration for the photos she capture of my boyfriend and I. She truly has a talent for setting the scene and capture AUTHENTIC moments. We will cherish these memories and the photos that reflect them forever!


Ellie shot our engagement photos and our experience was fun, comfortable, and easy. She takes great care in forming a relationship with you and your partner so she can capture you authentically. Her photos are STUNNING and I can’t wait for Ellie to photograph our wedding day!


Ellie is professional, so easy to work with and just awesome in every way. She captured our wedding day perfectly and was very flexible with our asks. She provided a great mix of posed and candids all with a very vintage feel. The gallery reflects exactly what we envisioned for our special day. Hire her, you won't regret it! Thank you Ellie!


I can't say enough amazing things about Ellie! We had family photos taken by her and I can't even believe how well they turned out- they blew us away! She's a true artist and not to mention, such a kind, thoughtful person. We will cherish our photos for the rest of our lives, and can't wait to book another session with her.


Ellie Mae exceeded our expectations! Went above and beyond in every way! My husband and I have had our photos taken by several different photographers but this is by far the best experience we’ve had! From the start Ellie made sure it was a personalized experience that depicted our relationship and style. We FaceTimed prior to meeting her and she asked great questions to get to know us and vice versa and it eased any nervousness we might have had! She was personable so sweet! She had such a creative and fun approach. We left feeling like we made a new friend!


Ellie is a skilled photographer who went above and beyond for our special day. Not only did she help ease my anxiety about having my photo taken, she produced high quality, sensational wedding photos that I can’t stop staring at. She captured a variety of photos with intense textures and moody hues. I particularly loved the photos she choose where movement within a frame was clearly captured. It was a little windy at times and she used the element to create one of a kind shots where the trees and leaves looked like they were moving along with us. I am very happy to have photos that captured the range and depth of emotions we experienced on our wedding day.


Ellie was an absolute joy to work with! She took time and care into getting to know us to learn more about our personalities, dynamic and style prior to our wedding. She is both professional and personable. The photos from our big day turned out beautiful and we couldn't be happier with them! 12/10 would recommend Ellie!


Ellie is incredible at what she does! It didn’t even feel like we were taking pictures because of how personable she is. We loved every part of the process while working with her and we will definitely be using her again!

Where do I even begin! working with Ellie was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a photographer. My husband and I had sooo much fun and we felt so comfortable. It was our first time meeting Ellie and we instantly clicked and became friends. Important things to note: 1. She is very professional but far from uptight and makes things feel easy, breezy, beautiful. 2. She sent us a mood board that was very helpful. 3. She was early and used our time wisely 4. She helped us pose so there were no awkward moments in front of the camera. 5. OUR PHOTOS CAME OUT GORGEOUS! 6. Her edits and attention to detail are perfect.


Book Ellie asap! Trust us! She was amazing to work with. She was so kind and fun during the shoot which made our time more enjoyable. We had a very particular vision and she brought it to life so effortlessly. For something that we thought would be a random shoot has now turned into a very special memory for us. Ellie communicates very well and is such a hype person for pictures. Thank you Ellie for capturing photos we will treasure forever!!
