Hi! I’m Elyse, I grew up with a darkroom in my basement, so photography has always been a major part of my life. I graduated from UMass-Amherst with a concentration in photojournalism. I love using my background in documentary style to capture the candid moments and to tell the story of your big day.
I was an off-beat bride myself, so I’ve stood in your shoes, and have engaged in the same creative process that you’re all going through now.
I'm located in Central MA, but can easily make it to most locations in CT, NH, VT, RI, ME, and NY as well. In addition to that I am frequently also in Minnesota, and would be happy to pick up weddings out there as well!
How I cater to Offbeat Brides
I appreciate, enjoy, and delight in photographing couples with an unconventional approach to their celebrations.
I have a huge soft spot for DIY décor, themed weddings, and backyard receptions, but I’m down for anything that makes your wedding unique.
Oh, and I’m budget friendly, too, with smaller rates for smaller weddings!
Now, let’s tell your story and make some memories!
"A friend recommended Elyse as a photographer and of all the decisions we made for the day she was hands down the best! As my husband said, 'who but Elyse could make the day as vibrant in the pictures as it is in our minds!' " - India and Kyle
"[Elyse] is super creative and very responsive- she suggested locations for the engagement shoot and came up with beautiful and unique poses." - Ashley and Eamon
" We HIGHLY recommend Elyse! She captures the essence of a moment and transforms it into an artistic wonder." - Deanna and Jenni
