Hey there. I’m Ellen

I love LOVE, and can’t imagine spending my days doing anything other than capturing and telling your unique and amazing love story. It’s always an honor to be invited into your lives, especially for such a momentous occasion.

When I’m not behind the lens or carefully editing your images, I love to explore new places, and have yet to satisfy my wanderlust. I recently 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? Photography is important to you and your big day. 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’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.


While I split the year between Colorado and Vermont, I LOVE to travel and am always up for adventure.
This is where you can find me in the next coming months!

How soon after our wedding/elopement will we receive our photos?

The usual turn around time is 4-6 weeks. Usually 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 bring backup gear?

Oh, you betcha.

Do we have rights to print our photos?

Definitely. You can purchase prints easily through your gallery, but you may print your photos wherever you'd like.

We'd like to book you! What is required to officially book you?

Heck yeah. All I need to officially lock your date in is:
A signed contract and 25% retainer fee - both can be completed online!

What types of payment do you accept?

Once you've signed your contract, you'll receive an invoice for your 25% date retainer fee. I accept credit/debit, check and venmo!
