"Our paths providentially crossed Elissa's a few years ago on a backpacking philosophy summer retreat in North Dakota. It was there that we were introduced not only to Elissa's beautiful soul, but also to her breathtaking photography. At the time, my now husband and I were only dating, and Elissa with the keen eye that she has, artfully snapped a few candid photos capturing so clearly the simple beauty of a fresh relationship. When it came time to document our wedding day we were searching for someone who could again capture the deep truth, joy, and beauty of such a special moment - qualities that so effortlessly radiate from Elissa and her work. We contacted our beautiful friend immediately and prayed she was available to make the cross-country trip. She did not disappoint, and now thanks to her, we can enter back into the raw spirit of that day whenever we choose to open our wedding album."

"Elissa is incredibly talented and we are so grateful and blessed that she was able to take our pictures for our wedding. Elissa has an amazing gift of capturing simple and raw beauty and we saw this demonstrated first hand through our photos. She makes everyone feel comfortable having their pictures taken and is very organized, efficient and professional. You will be so grateful you had Elissa capture your special day. I promise you will not be disappointed. She is amazing!"

"Elissa captured our wedding day so perfectly. She was with us all day long and it seemed as though she never tired! She captured so many special moments that bring us so much joy to look back on. We were incredibly impressed with how she was able to work with the lighting and create the most beautiful images - outdoor nighttime lighting is tough!  The photos turned out gorgeous and we had trouble picking our "favorites", since we love them all!  We would recommend her to anyone who is not only looking for an excellent and artistic photographer, but also one who is kind, patient, and professional."
