"Elayne photographed our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with the results! She was so relaxed, always, which is so important on the wedding day (and leading up to it). She was the definition of “go with the flow” but also totally jumped in and took control when it was go time! Neither myself nor my husband love getting our pictures done and we both had an absolute blast with Elayne! She made the whole experience so casual and easy and perfectly captured both of our personalities and love in all the shots. We both highly recommend Elayne to anyone who is looking for a photographer that will capture who you really are on your special day, and not someone who makes you pose super awkwardly and fake laugh the whole time!!! ❤️"

"Elayne was a dream on our wedding day. There are so many things to worry about, but we didn’t have to worry about a thing when it came to our photographer. She was professional and so, so talented. She captured my husband and I as we are, natural and happy. She was also so attentive to details, guests, and this special moments throughout the ceremony and reception that you want to remember forever."

"Don't look any further... Elayne is a must have when looking for someone to photograph your special event. I was so pleased with the photos taken during my engagement session! Having made the session both fun and relaxing Elayne was able to capture the love I have for Clint. It was decided right then and there that she would take my wedding photos. If you are looking for someone that will take quality photos, Elayne is the way to go. It's easily a 5 star rating for me. I can't thank you enough Elayne!"

Clint & Emma

"We hired Elayne for our wedding and couldn't help but hire her for pictures at our 2nd anniversary! Her work captures the emotion, energy, and moment in such a creative and fun way! I am continually blown away by her work. On top of that, she is a blast to work with!"
