    Ellen is the ideal wedding photographer

    Hiring Ellen as our wedding photographer was not only one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day, it ranks wayyy up there in our all-time best decisions as well. Ellen is a incredible artist, a thoughtful and generous person, and a consummate professional. We had quite a large group of friends and family who don't particularly love having their photos taken, and she made everyone feel at ease while working so efficiently that even the time we set aside for various family portraits flew by. We are so grateful to Ellen for the beautiful photographs, and cannot recommend her more highly!

    Stunning Photographs!

    My wife and I could not be happier with The Light and Color's work. Ellen was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. She was easy to communicate with and immediately put us at ease upon our first phone conversation. Before the wedding, she encouraged us to think about a shot list of photos - who and where - so that we were prepared on the day.

    We had to plan our wedding from afar, as we live in Los Angeles but got married in upstate New York. We were looking for a photographer who would not only capture the feelings and emotions of the wedding, but who also understood how to use the natural surroundings to accentuate the beauty of the event. When it comes to outdoorsy, naturally-set weddings, we found many other photographers whose photos felt either too washed-out or overly-saturated; they were obviously heavily edited. But having grown up in the area, Ellen was very familiar with the, ahem, light and color of the region, and it really showed through in her work.

    On the day, she was thoughtful and kind, with a great sense of humor that runs on the dry side -- perfect for us. Though we had planned to pass on a second photographer, Ellen ended up bringing an assistant, Haley, but did not charge us for it. Haley was awesome as well, with a very sweet and calming presence. They were both patient with us and all our knucklehead friends and family, and came in with a plan of attack based on previous conversations that we had had about shot lists. They made us feel comfortable and confident, with lots of great compliments. We also had a few photographer friends that may have been encroaching on Ellen's work, but she handled it in stride, never making a fuss. Never once did she get pushy, short, or demanding, and though she was happy to make suggestions, she always deferred to us in the end. Neither of them ever felt in the way or like a disturbance, blending in, but also getting along with any guests they interacted with.

    Ellen has a great eye, and picked a different location for our first looks than we had originally intended, but the photos were beautiful and we were very happy with her decision.

    We also made a point in our discussions beforehand that we wanted lots of photos of our guests. Yes, the moment is about us, but what often makes the best weddings so special are the people that attend, and we really wanted to be able to look back on the celebration with mementos of all our friends and family celebrating and having fun. Ellen did not disappoint on that front, as we have many beautiful and candid photos of our guests as well the insanely gorgeous ones of us.

    We loved Ellen so much that it was legitimately saddening to say goodbye. We had a great time with her, and could not be more stoked on how the photos turned out. We could not recommend The Light + Color more and would hire them again in a heartbeat!
