Hi, I'm Ella!

I’m a Southern California based photographer who specializes in colorful, contemporary imagery. I’m inspired by love stories and natural light. By means of my camera lens, I get to capture some of life’s most beautiful moments and retell the story of a special day.

I love red wine, dark chocolate fresh flowers, hiking, and people who don’t take themselves or life too seriously. I’m always willing to adventure and love discovering new places. If you want to wake up before sunrise to have an empty city to yourself, I’m there! If you want to wander off a path or climb rocks to find the perfect photo spot, count me in!

Being a photographer is the best job in the world. I get to meet and work with amazing people, share stories, and witness special moments. I am incredibly grateful to be able to do what I love every day. 

When I’m not shooting, I can be found plant shopping, sipping coffee, or cooking new recipes with my awesome husband, Greg.
