You're Engaged! Congratulations!

I am SO excited for you! I can't wait to hear all about how you met, fell in love, and how he proposed! No matter how it happened, I can truly say you've made the best decision: to be married!

Marriage will change your life in so many ways, and I am delighted to help you with the first day of your forever!

Your Wedding Day!

Setting Your Wedding Date

Whether you're having a traditional wedding day or planning something unique, the first step is always deciding on a wedding date! Once your date is chosen, you can begin choosing your wedding vendors! Venues, photographers, and planners tend to book the fastest, so being flexible with your date may help with the availability of your dream team!

Booking Me As Your Photographer

I can't wait to find out if we are a good fit!

I will be with you through every step of your wedding day! In fact, we'll be together so much that we may end up being great friends! As your photographer, it is my job to make sure things move along as smoothly as possible. I will help you plan a timeline for your wedding day, as well as create a custom family photo list so you get the photos that are the most important to you!


But first, let's find out if I am available for your wedding date! Fill out the contact form and I will get back to you within 2 business days! Then we can schedule a consultation over the phone or video chat and talk about all of your plans.

I can't wait to hear your love story!

Client Testimonial

"We had the most amazing experience with Ellen. From the pre-planning, to after the wedding, she always listened to every detail we wanted. She went above and beyond to travel around the city to capture our love of Pittsburgh! I still can't help but look at our wedding photos over and over!"
Lauren & Benjamin

I can't wait to be your photographer!

Once you've signed the contract and paid your retainer, you are officially booked! Every couple who books their wedding with me receives a complimentary engagement session!

I'll send you my style guide which is packed with the best tips for what to wear and how to prepare for your engagement photos! Then we can decide on the best location that will be perfect for the two of you. Once your engagement photos are completed, you can use them for save the dates, wedding decor, or simply have them printed for your walls!

Planning Your Timeline & Important Photos

About 2 months before your wedding day, I'll check in to make sure everything is coming along well. We can then begin finalizing your wedding day timeline and your family photo list! I'll make sure that you have enough time to do everything you desire. I'll make a detailed timeline for you to have and share with your bridal party, family, and other vendors so they can stay on track too!

This will ensure that everything runs as smooth as possible on your wedding day!

We will go over any shots that are extremely important to you, and I will be sure to make note of them in my paperwork that I carry with me on your wedding day!

It's Wedding Time!

It's finally here! Your wedding day has arrived!

Your job is to take in and enjoy every moment of your day. Your vendor team and I will take care of the rest!

I'll be there to capture every moment and even the ones in between that you wouldn't have thought about. In the end, you will have a full set of photos that tell the story of your wedding day. A photo story that you will be able to share with all of your friends and family, for generations to come!

Client For Life

Just because your wedding day is over doesn't mean that our time together has come to an end!

In fact, after spending the best day ever with you, I'd be so sad to never see you again!

That's why I make it easier than ever to hire me again for your milestones and yearly photos!
