Knoxville Wedding Photographer for the crazy In Love and Wild Spirits

Get to KNow me »

I'm so glad you've found your way to my site! After over 9 years as a professional Jacksonville photographer, I have learned one thing (okay, I've learned lot and lots of things, haha!) But the most important thing I've learned in this time is every love story is unique. No matter how many weddings and couples I photograph, two are never alike. The images I take capture the unique awesomeness that is the two of you. 

I love that my job allows me access to some of the most beautiful, emotion-filled moments of your life. As you look at your wedding photos, I want you to experience your love story all over again, no matter how many years later. I want it to conjure up the same feelings like it was yesterday. After all, your wedding day should be fun, relaxing, and literally magical - and I'm here to help make that happen. I want you to spend your day breathing in in every moment and having a ton of fun! 

hey there, I'M ELLY!

"Elly was an                                                                   wedding photographer. She did my engagement photos and wedding, and I could not be happier with the memories that she captured for us. My husband and I were nervous about being in front of the camera, but Elly was very professional and kept the whole experience fun!"

Knoxville Wedding Photographer

(with a love for travel!)

The majority of my work is spread throughout the east coast. I love love to travel! So if you're getting married in Knoxville, I'm there. Asheville - you got it! Florida, no problem! St. Thomas, uuhhh heck yes! 

Traveling and adventuring are truly part of my core. I have visited and worked all over the world, but my favorite destinations are National and State Parks. There is nothing like the ranges of Olympic National Park or the breathtaking views in Linville Gorge. Camping, hiking, exploring, it's a big part of who I am.


I started in this industry as a Jacksonville Wedding Photographer and Florida will always be an important part of me. When my family decided to make the beautiful state of Tennessee our home sweet home, I was literally ecstatic (like packing-our-boxes-that-very-day kind of happy). Photographing Knoxville Weddings has been the joy of a lifetime, and I am so thankful for every amazing experience and the experiences that have yet to come.

I am always up for weddings in Jacksonville, Savannah, Asheville or anywhere your vision takes you! My bags are packed and I am ready to go (I mean... not literally packed this very second... but gimme 20 minutes and I'm there!)

I love that this amazing job allows me to travel to amazing couples like you and be where your wedding vision leads you. Wherever your planning your big day, I am 110% there! Let's do this.

She was well worth the money and even more, she was just a very nice person.

We are extremely glad that we found her for our daughter’s wedding. She went over and above any expectation we had for such an important event in our lives.
