Hi there,

I’m Ella, the girl behind the camera.


It all started when…

I was gifted a DSLR camera as a college graduation gift. Soon after, I went on a trip to visit my cute sister (sitting on the left). I brought my camera along with me and had so much fun photo documenting our time together—all the places we went, things we did, food we ate, and of course, all the coffee we drank (LOTS, pretty much anytime we’re together). I fell in love with the idea of being able to tell stories through photography, yet have the creative control in how I would like to capture my subject. I returned from my trip with the goal of mastering my camera and the dream of starting my own business to capture lasting memories for others. I haven’t looked back since.

Having the opportunity to meet new people, share stories, and capture personality through photography is incredibly rewarding. I’m grateful to do what I love everyday.

When asked what type of photographer i am…

Well, I shoot a a few different things! From weddings and portraits to food, my goal is to capture people and things in real-life situations in a manner that artistically captures the beauty in everyday.
