Josh & Jenny: I give Elise a 5 star review. When my fiancé (now wife) began this whole wedding planning process, we were somewhat overwhelmed/surprised by all the decisions we had to make. Mostly because you don’t know whether or not your decision will be the right one when it comes down to it. Well we can unequivocally say that hiring Elise as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a great time during our engagement session as we hiked through the back hills of Mt Diablo. And the wedding day could not have gone smoother. You could definitely tell that Elise had a plan for the day and she directed/guided our group effortlessly. To top it off, she provided finalized pictures very soon after the wedding. I told people we were expecting pictures a few months after the wedding, but Elise blew that expectation out of the water. If you need a wedding photographer, I could not give a higher recommendation. Thanks Elise!
Paule & Hazel: When picking our wedding photographer, I knew I wanted a young and elegant feel to my wedding photos, but finding that quality photographer with the best price seemed impossible, until I came across Elise and her work. Her photos online showed off just the look I wanted for my wedding: simple, youthful, and elegant. Her competitive pricing was a huge reason why I also decided to go with Elise. I liked that the package also included an engagement photo session. It wasn’t until our engagement session that I realized how talented Elise really was. We were running very late because of San Francisco traffic, so our session ended up being cut a little short, but Elise knew exactly what to do with the time we had to get the best photos. When we received the final photos, I was amazed with her work and how fast she got them to us. When it came to our wedding day, I had no doubts and had full confidence in what she was doing since we had already worked with her. Her work with our wedding photos was flawless and way more than I expected. Other than her beautiful photos, what I really like about Elise is how she knows how to conduct her sessions. She has a true vision and knows exactly how to coordinate a couple to as many as sixteen of us at the same time. I can’t say it enough and how talented Elise is. She is absolutely incredible to work with, and an amazing photographer.
Kevin & Kacy: My wedding pictures look absolutely gorgeous and were published in a wedding magazine. Elise has such a creative eye and poses you very naturally so the pictures just pop. The pictures turned out great and she was very creative with the backdrops. It was such a pleasure working with her. She and her assistant arrived early to scope out the venue and took some amazing shots. She was professional and was able to get all the shots I wanted – all while blending in to the background of the reception. I will definitely use her again in the future and recommend her to anyone who is looking for a photographer!
John & Han: I can’t tell you how lucky we felt about finding Elise, the rising star of wedding photography and more! We found her on craigslist, and after checking out her portfolio, we decided to meet with her because her work is fresh, young and creative, just like her! We were pleasantly surprised by her friendliness, professionalism and maturity. We had no problem talking to her, and telling her what we were looking for. She has a very calm and relaxing demeanor, which we thought would make our first professional photo shoot easier, and we were right. Our engagement session was shockingly fun, considering neither my now-husband and I were good “posers”, Elise and her assistant made us feel extremely comfortable. I did quite a few outfit changes, and they were super patient and provided great feedback on what they think would look good on camera. Elise thought of things that would not have come across my mind, and I was so glad that she thought about these little details and passed along the wisdom. On our wedding day, Elise again impressed us with her handwork and creativity. Bottom line: If you are looking for someone who’s fun, young, creative and thoughtful, oh, not to mention how reasonable her wedding packages are, look no more, you’ve found the one!
Nick & Patricia: Working with Elise was such a joy!! Elise made our wedding so memorable with all of our gorgeous pictures. I have had so many people ask us who took our pictures and could not believe the price we got for the AMAZING quality Elise always provides. Working with her and her assistant is always such a pleasure. As a bride she helped calm my nerves and when taking photos, she knew exactly what to say. She made the day relaxing! Elise is one of the most creative, unique photographers I have ever seen. We will definitely be using her in the future!!!
