Hands down, best decision we made on our wedding.
Words can not express the gratitude we have for Eli and his team. Eli's creative ability to capture a moment in time is what appealed to us. We appreciated his artistic view of common wedding spaces (how difficult it is to find new angles in the same locations). His easy going and friendly nature made photographing with him a breeze. He made our (potentially awkward) public engagement shoot and the very stressful wedding morning fun, no pressure and he easily fit in like part of our family. We are forever grateful for the incredible photographs we will memories we hold in his photos will last us a lifetime.Sent on 01/29/2019

Eli is amazing!
I first met Eli when he photographed my sister and brother-in-law's DC wedding in October 2015. I was so impressed by his work then. He captured a wonderful blend of artistic shots, beautiful family portraits, and and candid moments. He was helpful, organized, efficient, and unobtrusive throughout the day, and he's a super cool guy to hang out with.Sent on 04/19/2019
When I got engaged, Eli was the first person I thought of to photograph our wedding, and after showing my now husband Eli's photos, he agreed. He husband is much less enthusiastic about taking photos than I am, but Eli was so chill and fun during our engagement shoot that my husband really enjoyed it! We loved our beautiful engagement photos from Eli and received so many compliments on them! Eli was great at capturing natural candid moments, creating artistic shots, and helping us pose when we needed it (even finding ways to make our extreme height difference less awkward in photos)!
Eli was fantastic on our wedding day! He was calm and efficient even when us girls were behind schedule getting ready, he was quick to step in and help me figure out how to carry my train, he had great ideas for where to take beautiful photos outside and inside at the venue, and he made jokes and kept the mood light throughout all of the portraits. He even got our two stoic dads and camera-shy 6-year-old nephew to smile in photos! His assistant Tina was fantastic as well. Both Eli and Tina managed to be there to capture all of the important moments without feeling obtrusive at all, and they were great people to spend the day with!
We just got all of our wedding photos from Eli (less than a month after our wedding, which is incredible!), and we love them all! Eli has such an incredible eye for beautiful shots that it's hard to even choose which photos to print because they're all so lovely! The ones of the two of us are all stunning, and Eli captured so many incredibly creative photos with the sunset and the twinkle lights at the venue. We'll cherish the portraits of our families and wedding party forever, and we love the photos from the ceremony and reception. Eli did a great job circulating at the reception and capturing photos of all of our guests.
Eli also captured so many wonderful detail photos that were great to see because it was hard to take everything in on the wedding day!
We can't recommend Eli enough! He has a fantastic photographer and person to have by your side on your wedding day!
