INTERNATIONAL WEDDING & BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER | now booking weddings for 2013 | available to travel |
My name is Isabella. I'm 29. I've owned my own business for almost 8 years now.. Well, I was a designer during that time. I've actually have had Ella Photography for only 2. I've started my own photography company because I wanted to be different some everyone else. Yes there's millions of photographers out there.. But there's only a few that do it because they want to make sure that Bride and Grooms have the best care.
Too often I went to weddings and I saw the photographer being demanding and rude to everyone. Arg! I would smack them! They would pose the bride and groom like they were puppets and tell them exactly what to feel and say to each other. I don't like that! I want to follow YOU all day. Whatever happens, happens. I do not pose. I'm there to capture how your day unfolds. Don't worry, we DO have a portrait session (I'm actually known for those!) but I don't like to pose. I tell you where/how to stand but then, you do what you want! I want you to remember how you were feeling that day. How beautiful you both looked that day. I don't care about how dirty the room is or how the other photographers did it before. I'm there for YOU on YOUR wedding day. I'll help you keep the timeline in check, make sure you don't forget to go to the bathroom (and eat!), get your guests to sit down when you are ready for your entrance or even help you put in your contacts (yes, it's happened) . It's not only about the photos for me. It's about making sure that you get the experience that you deserve. I'm not here to make sure I get ALL THE SHOTS I NEED. I'm here to be your little assistant and capture your day.
I do this because I love what I do. Because I can be myself when I do it.
If you are looking only for a photographer that will come and take photos and then go home, I might not be the photographer for you. Your wedding day means more to me than that. I'm a girl who likes to take pictures and happens to own businesses. I'm not doing this for the money. I'm easy-going and think photography has a great importance to memories and am looking for bride and grooms that feel the same way.
I offer personalized service: You make your own package, I (not someone else) shows up when YOU want and I'll be your little helper for the day. I retouch your photos one-by-one and I answer all my emails and phone calls. I'm one person. Not a multi-national company where you don't know who shows up for your wedding and most of the time, they don't even talk to you. I'm one person. I do EVERYTHING in my company. I'm also extremely honest and get really hurt when people yell at me and think that I'm not. I'm human (Surprise!). Like all humans, I learn about life and about myself, everyday. I make honest mistakes along the way (paperwork is not my thing) and I learn from my mistakes. But I will offer you the best experience you ever asked for. Along with awesome photos ;)
And that's the truth.

I can be myself"
