About Ellysse Photography and You
I love showcasing who you are through photography. We are made of something empowering and special. Receive the luxury quality you deserve, vital moments captured, and authentic timeless images to treasure for years and generations to come.
You want a photographer who will create the type of image you want, someone who understands your goals and the type of final images. You want someone who gets YOU, and has the professional experience and talent to make it happen. You’re in the right place, take a deep breath, you're search ends here.
Stand out with dynamite poses and spontaneous emotional prompts to create authentic, genuine moments and feeling. Look your absolute best with the Ellysse Photography Style Guide, honed from 1000’s of successful sessions, as you are guided through the preparation process, meaning the stress and worry of getting ready for your session are something of the past. Quality is boundless as service is tailored to you, ensuring your experience, from scheduling to preparation to the final product, is a smooth and beautiful process. The results are fond memories and timeless, stunning images. I press the shutter during flickers of emotion often lost in the shuffle, capturing the quiet moments; a glance and a feeling that reflects you, as much as those filled with joy and spontaneity.
My images are styled around you and who you are as individuals. It is an honor to visually capture everything that makes you YOU and that which makes us unique and awesome humans, from our dimples and the way we smile to our relationships with the most important people around us.
In the realm of fashion and as a former model, I have an astute understanding of the experience in front of the camera. In this regard, my fortes include helping you feel comfortable in front of the lens, directing, coaching, and posing new models. My focus entails sessions which result in a successful artistic adventure, and ultimately fine art that benefits both the model and the final product.
I look forward your session!

As Seen In
I shoot with a Canon 5d Mark iii camera body, my favorite lens, the Sigma ART 50mm 1.4, as well as the Canon 50mm 1.2 L, Canon 85mm 1.2 L, Canon 70-200mm 2.8 L IS II, and Canon 24-70 2.8 L II. My film cameras include a medium format Hasselblad 500CM with 85mm and 105mm Hasselblad lenses, a Minolta 35mm, a Canon AF35ML, a Nikkor 35mm, a vintage Rollieflex, and a 1980's polaroid camera. I incorporate film photography upon request. My prior well loved cameras back in 2006 and onward included a Canon Digital Rebel, followed by my well loved Nikon D40x, both crop sensor cameras that carried me from beginner to pro.
As for lighting, I utilize natural lighting as much as possible as this is the most flattering and beautiful light source. In studio and out, I incorporate reflectors, scrims, softboxes, flashes, strobes and continuous cinematographic lighting when needed.
