You have one job on your wedding day: dance, drink, and have fun! (or is that 3 jobs?) My job is to commemorate the happiest day of your life with stunning photography. And I’m pretty darn good at it.
I’m different from the DJ that ignores your (multiple) requests for Bruce Springsteen. This is the biggest day of your life, so I’m going to give you exactly what you want, and never miss a single moment.
After all, these photos will be passed around the dinner table for generations to come, and will serve as physical time capsules that you can touch, feel, and place around your home. In other words, they must be amazing photos, plain and simple.
I believe that the most intimate bond between two people should be celebrated in an intimate setting, and that’s why I specialize in smaller weddings. I’ve been a bridesmaid 10 times now, all at massive, and super stressful NY weddings. Trust me, I get it.
Big weddings can be amazing, but smaller weddings really allow me to capture more candid moments, talk to and meet more of your guests, and photograph all of the conversations, laughs, hugs, and kisses. Your wedding shouldn’t feel like an event or a performance, it should feel like you’re at home with family.
I was born and raised in New York, and I currently reside in Long Island. I love having the white sand beaches, vineyards, and historic buildings at our disposal to create magnificent settings for your perfect day. Let’s make it our canvas.
I also photograph many weddings and couples along the white, sandy South Florida beaches, from West Palm Beach through Miami and along the South Florida Eastern Coastline.
I won’t just be your photographer, I’ll be part of your family (just for the day, don’t worry). I don’t take photos of clients, I take photos of new best friends. I want simply the best for you on this magical day, and I promise to create an everlasting memory that you’ll share with friends and family for years to come.
And don’t worry, when your face is covered in cake I promise to still capture your good side!
From our initial phone conversation, we immediately had such a good feeling about her and her work. Elise quickly proved that we had made the right choice and she far exceeded our expectations. Considering that we had our wedding during the pandemic, Elise helped to do what she could to make us comfortable the whole way through. She made the day considerably less stressful than it could have been and we will be forever grateful. She walked us through every step of the process and was eager to scope out the venue beforehand to get us the best possible shots. Elise was able to candidly capture the most precious moments of us and our families. The turnaround was very quick and we were so delighted with the results! Working with her was such a pleasure and I will continue to recommend her for any photo-worthy event.
I can't recommend Elise enthusiastically enough! Her photos speak for themselves- beautiful! We couldn't be happier. But on top of that she worked closely with us to make sure everything for the wedding and the photos was perfect. We originally hired her to photograph our August 2020 wedding, which turned into a July 2021 event, and she was by our sides the whole time; keeping us up-to-date on Covid restrictions, reminding us of important details, and just generally keeping things on track. Her professionalism and organization were enormous assets on the day of the wedding which was full of the inevitable, unexpected chaos. She rolled with everything, kept us on schedule, got all the shots we planned on (and the ones my mother added in the moment) and did it all while radiating calm and positivity!
Physical photos bring us back in time. You can pick up the photo, hold it, frame it, and pass it around the dinner table. You can feel the love and happiness of the day captured in its glossy finish. The fact that it can be damaged or lost only adds to how special this new heirloom really is.
This is why I always give my clients physical photos instead of just digital files, and I’m sure you understand as well where I’m coming from. A day as magical as your wedding day deserves something fragile. Something you need to take care of. Something that will remind you how important it is to protect and cherish who we love, just the same as how you’ll protect and cherish your wedding photos for decades to come.
