Words fail me when it comes to explain how much I have loved working with Elysha and Ever After Photography Vermont.
I met Elysha thirteen years ago professionally. From day one, her passion for weddings has always been a huge part of who she is. Since she started Ever After Photography Vermont, I have gushed from afar over her work. Her talent is endless- from the wedding, engagement and family sessions that you see publicly, to the private behind-the-scenes work she does as well, Elysha is truly a gifted photographer.
Fast forward twelve years to when I got engaged and Elysha was my first, and only, contact for photography. I knew without a doubt that she had to be the one to capture one of the best days of my life. I had always known Elysha was incredible, but it wasn’t until now that I realized how much more she really is.
The day I reached out to Elysha to reserve her for my wedding, we discussed all of the options and she created a custom package for the wedding to fit our needs. She never once pushed for anything extra, and as always, showed just how professional she was.
A few weeks later we made the decision to have an engagement session, and Elysha was our go-to. She met us at the spot we got engaged to take our pictures. We are not “picture people” and aren’t very comfortable in front of the camera. Any hesitation or anxiety simply disappears when Elysha is running your session. Even though it was Chris’ first time meeting Elysha, it felt more like we were hanging out with a friend who happened to be taking our picture, than participating in a photo shoot. Our pictures came out beautiful, and solidified our decision to work with Elysha.
A few months before our wedding, I talked to Elysha about giving a special gift to my husband and we set up a bridal boudoir shoot in her in-home studio. I promise you- there is NO ONE on this planet I would trust more with this task than Elysha. Being a more modest person and being camera shy, she knew exactly what to do to make me comfortable. She helped with suggestions for outfits and even recommended an amazing salon nearby for hair and makeup before. She never once asked me to do anything that I wasn’t comfortable with. When the photos were done, we worked together to make an album that I’m proud of and made a wonderful gift for my husband.
As our wedding approached, Elysha checked in with me and always offered to help with whatever she could. The morning of our wedding, I got a text from her “Happy Wedding Day! Let me know if you need anything at all. ☺️”
Our wedding day was one of the hottest, most humid days of the summer, and Elysha was willing to do whatever we needed to give us amazing pictures. The second she showed up, she had this amazing calming effect any stresses that I felt, not even only about pictures, just melted away- it was like having another best friend right there with you. She was another set of hands helping out through the day, and yet was behind the scenes at the same time. Multiple people said “I didn’t even know she was there” during our ceremony. She captured every important moment and details that I had missed throughout the day.
She has vision that never ceases to amaze me. She positions you for pictures and it isn’t until you see the shot after that you realize she sees so much more than you do. With every session I’ve done with her, I’ve been thrilled start to finish.
I know for fact that when we need a photographer in the future, I will be calling Elysha.Sent on 08/01/2019

We feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Elysha! I had seen some of her work, and had heard great things about her from friends. We were excited to get the chance to have her as our photographer too! From the very beginning of our wedding planning, Elysha was so supportive, organized, professional, and kind. We knew we were in great hands from the very start! On our wedding day, she and her partner were very prepared, encouraging, positive, warm, and fun. They took amazing photos and captured so many memorable and special moments. We love looking at our wedding photos and will cherish them for years to come! Thank you!Sent on 08/09/2018

I heard about Elysha from my coworker who has known Elysha most her life, and had her wedding photos taken by her. We were blown away by Elysha and her assistant Danica. We didnt meet prior to our wedding, but I felt like I'd known her for a long time - she was so friendly, kind, enthusiastic and always had a smile on her face. Our ceremony and dinner were planned to be outside, but the rain interfered. I wanted a photo with the bridal party on the veranda which meant Elysha would be standing in the rain - she didnt miss a beat! She was so incredibly flexible and gave great direction. We just got the photos back and WOW - no other words to describe the quality and the moments she captured so beautifully. We would hire Elysha again in a heartbeat. She truly is amazing. I just asked my husband what he wanted to say about Elysha and Danica - "they're perfect". Well put!Sent on 08/09/2017

I have always loved photography so when it came to my wedding day, I needed to hire the best. Ever After came to my attention when many brides that I knew in my area got married and I couldn't help but obsess over their amazing photos! I was confident that Ever After Photography was the right photographers to hire, and I'm so glad that I did. Elysha was like having a second MOH. She was right there for me throughout the entire day. She held my drinks, dress, boutique, all while doing her best work and capturing every moment. Planning a DIY wedding by yourself can be super stressful and overwhelming. When the weather doesn't cooperate, and the day you pictured in your head isn't coming alive, you want to cry. Elysha lifted me up when I was down, and kept me from falling apart at times when I thought I couldn't keep it together. God bless her! Elysha was also super flexible! She listened to my ideas and executed them while I also leaned to her for her professional advice. A day or two after our wedding she already had our sneak peak photos done and they were absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Ever After to any bride that is looking to have her dreams come true. I feel that she truly saved my day. She captured our rainy day perfectly, and even found me a rainbow! <3Sent on 07/11/2017

On our wedding day, Elysha arrived very well prepared, on time, and provided professional service. She was flexible as our day evolved and was a supportive and positive person to have on what can be a very busy/stressful day. The photographs that we have received thus far, capture the exact feeling of magic that we felt on that day. Eysha is a great addition to anyone's wedding day!!Sent on 07/08/2017

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Elysha for our wedding and she exceeded our expectations in every way imaginable! She is very down to earth and ensured that everything we wanted was accomplished on our special day. She is extremely talented and captured the most intimate of moments including our "First Look" and our "I Do!" beautifully! One of the great things about working with Elysha was she was always thinking ahead. She scouted our wedding area thoroughly before our pictures started, making sure each setting and moment was perfectly executed. Her assistants were always around to lend a helping hand, even if that meant holding the veil in just the right spot! Bryan and I will cherish these photos forever and are 100% confident you will have the same experience if you choose Elysha to capture your special day.Sent on 07/10/2017
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Elysha was excellent! We loved every single photo from our engagement shoot and wedding. She was professional, courteous, and fun! It was a relief knowing that my husband and I could relax and enjoy our day because we knew we could trust Elysha to get the perfect photos, and she did! She arrived at our venue early to get some detail and getting ready shots which we greatly appreciated. Our day went perfectly and thanks to Elysha we are able to relive it through the amazing photos. We can't thank her enough! I would absolutely recommend Ever After Photography to anyone!Sent on 09/08/2016

Elysha is an amazing photographer, even though we are related, she is very easy to work with and is always willing to take all your ideas into considerations. She has a great eye for her work and is very passionate about it. She also has a great turnover time for getting your photos finished. I couldn't be more happier with the outcome, truly impressive and down to earth.Sent on 08/24/2016
Ever After Photography's reply:You are so sweet to say that, thank you Andrea! I loved working at your beautiful, unique wedding and can't wait for you to get some of the photos on your walls. :)

Elysha is both an incredibly nice person and an amazingly talented and professional photographer. She captured the spirit of our day together so well. We will cherish the photos for a liftetime. She also does a great job photographing children and babies, which can be challenging. This was my second wedding and my children figured heavily in the festivities. She got GREAT shots of all of us. My Mom commented that she fit in so well and just blended to become a part of the party. If you are looking for a warm, accommodating photographer, Elysha is perfect.Sent on 08/24/2016
Ever After Photography's reply:Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Miki. It means the world to me to have happy clients who just accept me into the fold of the most important days of their lives. You and your family are incredibly special and it was an honor to be a part of your wonderful wedding!
Santana · Married on 07/02/2016
At the beginning of my wedding planning, I wasn't sure I wanted to invest in a photographer for our wedding, but after hearing the wonderful reviews from acquaintances and family and seeing the quality of her photos, I knew I wanted to work with Ever After and she was able to squeeze me in. Working with Elysha was the best decision we made for the wedding! The engagement session allowed my husband, who is very camera shy, to get to know her and she quickly made him feel comfortable. Elysha is able to connect easily with people and put them at ease, which is exactly what my husband needed. It was like she was a part of the family on our wedding day. The photos from our wedding day are nothing short of heavenly. She knows when to give the little nudge to get the right photo without making people feel uncomfortable and snapped some great candids. She was always very quick to respond to emails and was always on time, prepared, professional, and kind. What we got for our money was more than I ever expected and it wasn't just a photographer we got, we got the Ever After Experience. I would recommend Elysha to anyone who wants a quality wedding photographer. Absolutely stunning photos that captured things we really cared about on that day--the VT scenery, our dog of honor, the little details, and most importantly our friends and family.Sent on 12/01/2016
Ever After Photography's reply:Oh Santana, thank you so very much for your kind words and review! I'm so happy that you were pleased with your experience and I was thrilled to be a part of your wedding. It was a truly magical day and I hope you relive it over and over again through your photos! xoxo

Elysha made it very easy for my husband and I to choose her for our wedding photographer. She is truly the best. She captures those moments that are unforgettable at a wedding in such a unique and special, emotional way. She also gets those photos you never knew you'd love so much. She was very very easy to work with and everyone in the wedding party adored her. She worked with everyone very naturally while her second shooter was with the guys taking incredible photos. She puts up teasers really soon after the wedding and I got my edited photos within a month. In fact, I asked her to send me some for holiday photos before my whole gallery was done and she got them up shortly there after. A friend that was in my wedding chose Elysha for her upcoming wedding as well, and seeing her handiwork again in person really think she is the best wedding photographer I've ever seen (and I look at a lot of wedding pictures, I really love weddings.). Pick Elysha as the photographer for your special day, promise it will be the best decision you'll make - she's not just a vendor, she'll become your best friend.Sent on 09/23/2016
Ever After Photography's reply:Kristen, your review made me tear up, seriously! This is my dream - to photograph the most beautiful day in a couple's life together and to have them be happy. The bonus is gaining wonderful friends when all is said and done. Thank you so much, xoxo!

I can't say enough about Elysha and her husband. Honestly, more than I could ever ask for in a wedding vendor. I will continue to ask Elysha to do any important photos for me.Sent on 08/09/2016
Ever After Photography's reply:I am so glad that you and Ian came into my life! Your wedding was phenomenal, the two of you are such a wonderful couple, and I was so blessed to be a part of your day. Thank you so much Jenna!

Elysha truly captures every moment in the most beautiful and eye catching way. She has photographed our family photos, engagement photos, wedding photos and some other very special moments that we will forever cherish. She makes each of her clients feel special and as if they are her only client of the year with the 100% attention on you and your moment. I beyond highly recommend Elysha for any photography needs.Sent on 08/04/2016
Ever After Photography's reply:Thank you so much Krissy! Every client is VERY special to me, and it is an honor to be a part of all the amazing, special moments in your lives. <3
