Booking Process

Step 1:

Tell me your vision.

Once you submit an inquiry, I'll email you an in-depth pricing guide and we can schedule a phone call to go over the logistics and any questions you have. Once we both agree that we are a good fit, I'll send over your booking documents. All you need to do to complete the booking is sign your contract and pay your retainer fee.


Step 2:

We create something epic.

Once you are officially booked and scheduled, I will guide and assist you every step of the way. For wedding and elopement clients, my guidance will include creating a shot list based on your timeline and referring vendors who align with your vision. For other types of projects, my guidance will include advising on potential locations, suggesting ideas, and researching permit requirements.

Elopement or wedding?

What’s the difference?!


When you hear the word “elopement,” do you think of a quickie civil ceremony in a dimly-lit court room? A simple scroll through my Instagram will hopefully redefine your idea of what a modern-day elopement is truly about.

People elope for a ton of different reasons. For some, it’s wanting the focus to be solely on your and your soulmate. Often times, it’s seeking a unique and adventurous outdoor experience to begin your married lives together. In some cases, it’s reducing the overall amount of stress and hassle of throwing a big event. Whatever your reason is, elopements and intimate weddings can be catered to your exact needs and vision.

Genuine elopements typically only consist of you and your future spouse, a photographer, and an officiant. Some states even allow for couples to say their vows without an officiant present.

Intimate weddings (sometimes referred to as micro-weddings) can include up to 20 guests, not including any desired vendors. Most national parks and public areas can accommodate a group of this size, with the correct permits.

Traditional weddings can include anywhere from 20 to hundreds of guests, and typically take place at an insured venue.

No matter the size of your celebration, we want to be there to capture it for you.

Working with Ellen was a blast! When we decided we wanted to elope in Death Valley we had no idea where to begin or how to go about it. Luckily we found ShotbyEllen online and the rest was history. Ellen helped us set everything up for our special day. From creating the most epic timeline to scouting out all these awesome spots in Death Valley and Las Vegas, to coordinating with our vendors and keeping us informed every step of the way. Ellen’s attention to detail and talent for capturing each moment, emotion, laugh, sunset, lighting etc is what made our photos and experience so unforgettable. Highly recommend!!!!!


My fiancé and I had a vision when it came to our engagement photos, and Ellen was exactly the person we needed to fulfill it! She was amazing to work with throughout the entire process, from booking and planning, to the actual shoot and receiving all of the magnificent photos afterwards! She was personable, professional, and informative from start to finish. Both my fiancé and I were a little nervous about the shoot itself, but she put us completely at ease and made the day such a fun adventure. Our photos turned out beautifully and will not only be a centerpiece throughout our wedding planning, but will be something that we will cherish forever. I cannot recommend Ellen and her stunning work highly enough. She made our engagement shoot into a fairytale dream and I absolutely hope I have the opportunity to work with her again in the future!


Ellen's work truly sparks joy! She's amazing and a true professional in every sense. My fiancee and I had the pleasure of working with Ellen for an engagement session, as well as a mini holiday session just last week. She's easygoing, has a great eye, and we really enjoy her editing style. The product of her work has brought so much joy to our family members, and we will cherish these photos for years to come. If you're looking for a photographer you can trust to deliver on quality, value, and fun(!!), Ellen's your girl.
