Hey there. I'm ellen
I've always loved stories, my uncle used to light candles and bring us all next to the woodstove and tell us ghost stories, and I used to beg my parents to play me storybooks on tape every night as a kid. I recently told a story on the Moth, I love writing and painting a picture of words, but what I love more is the complexity that comes with telling a story through images.
That's why I'm a photographer, to tell your story.
I recently purchased a house tucked on the side of a mountain in Vermont, and I spend my summers lakeside in the Adirondacks. Although I love to sleep in my own bed after a wedding, I've been fortunate to have photographed weddings in 25 states, my passport is well worn and am always excited to travel for a celebration.
My work has been featured in Harper's Bazaar, Martha Stewart Weddings, BRIDES, and The Huffington Post, I've completed a long distance bike journey across the U.S.A., love to walk on mountaintops, sing (poorly) about everything, and not always play by the rules. You can check out my personal work at Ellen Ross Photography, and browse through the countless photos of bees in flowers.
What about you? You find beauty in the small things. You will trust me when I ask you take a walk in the woods to find the perfect magical spot for portraits. You can laugh at my sarcastic jokes, and aren't into taking anything too seriously. You’ll tell me what you want and need, while appreciating my artistic direction.
And, at the end of the day, you know that the only thing that matters (other than beautiful photographs and memories), is that you’re with the one you love.

HOW SOON AFTER OUR WEDDING/EVENT WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
Your gallery will be available 6-8 weeks after your wedding, typically sooner!
HOW CAN WE SHARE OUR IMAGES WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS?
It’s super easy! You’ll receive an online, password protected gallery with your final, edited images – you can share this information with anyone you’d like to share your images with.
CAN I SEE SOME FULL GALLERIES?
Of course! Shoot me an email and I’ll send over some galleries that may be a closer fit to what you’re looking for.
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
I carry duplicates of all my main gear in case of a malfunction. KNOCK ON WOOD - it's never been an issue.
CAN WE ORDER IMAGES THROUGH YOU?
Definitely. You can purchase prints easily through your gallery, but you may print your photos wherever you’d like.
Heck yeah. All I need to officially lock your date in is a signed contract and 25% date retainer fee – both can be completed online. Once you’ve signed your contract, you’ll receive an invoice for your 25% date retainer fee. I accept credit/debit cards or checks.
