MEET ELLA

PHOTOGRAPHER FOR PORTRAITS, TRAVEL & LOVE STORIES

I have loved taking photos for as long as I can remember and making it my profession was one of the best decisions I ever made. I am an Austrian wedding photographer who loves to travel and I did couple's sessions, engagement sessions and weddings, in Austria, Germany, and the USA (Arkansas and the Chicago Area) so far. I would love to be your engagement, wedding or elopement photographer too! While my main focus is on weddings, engagement and couple sessions, I am always up for portraits, family, creative shoots and other adventures.

Based in Graz, Austria, I want to travel to wherever you are! Don't be afraid to CONTACT ME with any of your questions! Or just to say hi - I’m incredibly happy you found your way here and can't wait to hear your story and create something beautiful together.

WARMEST REGARDS, ELLA

GET TO KNOW ME

Besides photography, I also work part time as a graphic designer and participate in various film and multimedia projects.

I’m a calm, solution-focused person, with an eye for detail and all the beauty in everyday things. Although I never liked describing myself as an artist and was convinced I would never want to be self-employed - now I couldn't be happier about it. Growing up in Austrias most beautiful little city, Graz, I spent every weekend on the countryside, running through the woods alongside my two sisters. In Chicago, where I met the love of my life, I feel perfectly at home so I keep going back there.

I ride my bike almost anywhere, go snowboarding in winter, and enjoy reading, ballroom dancing, acroyoga and pizza.

Always happy to collaborate with kind human beings.

MY PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?

I am a unposed, candid, documentary style photographer and use natural light and 'earthy, muted tones' to create a warm 'classic film look'.

Couples of mine value my unique perspective and how I work with them to capture their personalities and love for each other all while prioritising their comfort. I want to get to know YOU, to tell YOUR STORY, capturing important moments of YOUR LIFE and who knows, we might just hit it off and become friends for life…

WHY DO I WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU?
Because when you feel comfortable, your photos turn out incredible!

WEDDING - SPECIFIC

Two humans, madly in love, choosing to team up for this adventure called life & celebrate with everyone they hold dear - WEDDINGS ARE MY FAVORITE.

My main goal on your wedding day is to capture the love you two share for each other and all the emotions that come with that in the most authentic and genuine way possible. You deserve the best experience, and capturing that while being as invisible as I can is what matters most to me.

SO HOW DOES THIS WORK?

  1. LET’S TALK, make sure I’m the right fit for you
  2. Reserve your date, sign the contract, make a downpayment
  3. I’ll help you with any planning questions
  4. WEDDING DAY
  5. You pay the rest and receive all the photos
