Wedding photography is all about encounter and connection.

Whether we are creating your photography timeline or I’m giving you a final hug before your wedding exit, every aspect of my client experience is deeply rooted in human connection.

I believe a comfortable, confident couples take the best photos. I believe genuine laughter is the most beautiful. And I believe it’s my responsibility, as your photographer, to deliver nothing less.

"Ellie was our favorite vendor by far! She was very communicative and excited about our big day which is the kind of energy you need! She was also so professional and got "the shot" without taking us away from celebrating. She was the perfect photographer and I truly wish she could capture all of our special moments. Our pics were stunning and magazine worthy. So glad we chose her. If you are on the fence, take this review to heart. Email her now because she is booked and busy!"

You will never EVER find someone like Ellie Mckinney.

She is kind, passionate, inclusive, hard-working, creative, professional, warm, and BEYOND talented. Ellie did my engagement shoot, boudoir, and wedding.

The day we scheduled our engagement shoot it happened to pour down with snow. Beautiful...yes, but man was is COLD. Ellie had a smile on her face and walked through the snow with us and produced the most amazing photos.

We still have people that comment on that specific shoot that Ellie so magically created. My husband and I also got married in 2020 (covid year), where our plans were forever changing. Ellie and her team were always a phone call away and encouraging us with whatever change we had to make. Ellie was so flexible, calm, and warm through out the stressful 2020 year. I cannot say enough good things about Ellie and trust me, the photos that you get in return will always be so MAGICAL. She really is the best around.
Ellie (and team): We love what your business stands for and will always support you. Thank you for capturing our memories.
