A little about me
Hi! I’m Ella.
When I was little, my grandpa would develop film in the bathtub. Watching him hang blank photo paper onto a clothing line above the bath, in the dim, red light and seeing an image, plucked out of time, materialize out of nowhere, it felt like a magic trick.
After completing my BA (Hons) in Fashion Photography at London College of Fashion in 2013, I got the chance to photograph a good friend’s wedding shortly after moving to Toronto, Canada. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.
To me, each wedding I photograph feels like a Disney movie come to life. The best moment of any wedding is the bride walking down the aisle to some soft romantic music and I can’t help but join family & friends in shedding a tear during those emotional vows.
As for when I’m not behind the camera? Well, I love lazy nights in with my husband & our fur baby, Bailey, veggie nachos washed down with a (large) glass of sauvignon blanc and karaoke nights at the Gladstone with my girlfriends.
As exciting as wedding planning can be, it can also be extremely overwhelming. That’s why I am more than happy to be your go-to with any questions you may have. There’s few people who have been to more weddings than a wedding photographer. And trust me- big, small, we have seen it ALL.
From initial contact to final delivery – I’m never further away than a phone call, providing a service completely tailored to your wants and needs. All packages include complimentary pre and post consultations with plenty of time for any questions, concerns, and bad jokes (I like to think I’m punny).
This one-of-a-kind photography experience usually begins with a luxury engagement photo session, where we will practice simple, romantic posing while exploring one of Toronto’s beautiful locations. This is where I will learn much more about who you are, your photographic preferences as well as what kind of energy you share as a couple; Romantic, shy, casual, or just plain goofy! There’s a million different types of love, and they need to be photographed differently.
On your wedding day, we will be spending more time together than anyone else. You will likely be hanging out with me more than your future spouse! From hair & makeup to the last few moves busted on the dancefloor, I will be documenting every moment as it comes. We usually discuss the timeline of your big day as well as any must have photographs in our pre-wedding consultation. Each digital negative is then carefully edited for cropping, straightening, colour and light consistency by me before being delivered to you.
Wedding Packages range from $1300 to $3900 & clients typically spend $3000 on their custom Wedding Photography & products.
Two months or so after your wedding, we will get together over a glass of white to review the edited photographs from your big day and you will receive a USB with high resolution photographs.
Did you know that the average lifespan of a USB is only 10 years? For longevity of your photographs, it is extremely important to print physical copies to outlast the advancements in technology.
There’s nothing quite like a custom designed wedding album. I believe every couple deserves to own this beautiful keepsake, that’s why albums are included as standard in all packages. During your post-wedding consultation, we will go through your design options as well favourite photographs to include. Each album is printed onto the highest quality photo paper and hand bound by a professional photo lab right here in Canada. You will be amazed at how much better your photos look when printed and, I can guarantee, this album will be one of your most prized possessions for many years to come.
