From the minute we sat down with Amy to discuss her style and our ideas, we knew that she would make the most perfect photographer for our engagement and wedding photos. Amy's laid back and sweet personality is what made our wedding day photos so easy and allowed us to experience the unforgettable moments free of stress.
We love that Amy made us feel comfortable in front of the lens to be who we really are. The most unique part of her photography style is the way she is able to capture emotion. Unlike other photographers, Amy will give you and your significant other prompts to discuss while she runs around and snaps photos. This method brings out natural facial expressions and beautiful, raw, real emotion that every couple desires to have captured in photos. We were never forced to do fake poses, but instead did what felt natural. Amy is extremely talented behind the camera and flawlessly told the story of our relationship.
Amy will take the time to know the special details you have poured into your wedding and is willing to talk you through every step to ensure a seamless timeline of your big day.
I will never forget receiving an email from Amy with preview photos from our wedding the NEXT day as we were hopping onto our honeymoon flight. It was so very special to review those sweet moments with my brand new husband as we flew to our destination to celebrate. Her quick turn around was much appreciated.
We can't say enough positive things about our experience with Amy. If you are looking for a photographer for your special event, you can stop your search here.

Amy Ellis Photography was one of the easiest decisions my husband and I made for our wedding. Ryan hates having his photo taken, but after our initial meeting with Amy, he agreed that her fun, quirky personality would mesh with ours and it would feel most natural to work with her. He couldn't have been more right! We had the pleasure of road tripping to Asheville and Craggy Pinnacle with Amy for our engagement shoot in September and had the best time! She made us laugh and captured moments we didn't even know happened...so many of the little things it's easy to miss in busy life were captured so beautifully. She truly encompassed the things we hold dear to our relationship in her photos. Fast forward to our wedding in April and our experience was even better. Amy was flexible (she trekked with us from our garden wedding to coffee to a great spot for skyscraper photos to our Uptown reception without even blinking), she was professional (Ryan and I have never seen our families move so quickly than when she was organizing photos), and she was most of all fun (I don't know many photographers who will break it down with you and grandpa on the dance floor). I received preview photos to share with family and friends shortly after the wedding and the rest in no time. I would give Amy Ellis Photography a 12/10 and recommend Amy to any bride who wants natural, beautiful photos of their wedding day! She we met above and beyond to make everything easy, and we love our photos!

Out of all of the choices we made for our wedding, hiring Amy was the best decision we made. From our first meeting at a brewery, we learned about her photography style and backgrounds, developed inside jokes about photoshopped images, and got to know her as a person, which immediately made us feel at ease over the tough decision of choosing a wedding photographer. On our wedding day, Amy captured the best moments of the day by helping us feel comfortable and letting us be ourselves. She was great at drawing out the personalities of our family and friends, which helped capture the true spirit of our wedding. Throughout the day she was light-hearted, candid, funny, and easy to work with. We love showcasing Amy's work around our house and continue to get compliments from friends and family on our photos.

We couldn't be happier that we chose Amy to be our photographer! She came highly recommend by our friends Brandon and Emily Kirkley and after seeing all of the incredible shots she captured for them, we knew she was the one for us. Trust me, we looked through several other photographers portfolios and Amy's absolutely blew the competition out of the water like a freakin' atomic bomb! Not only does she take breath-taking photographs, she is able to capture the "mood" like no other. We were immediately drawn to her style of photography as well as her bubbly personality. She continued to go above and beyond our expectations and worked incredibly hard to make sure we were happy with her work. She was so quick to get our photos back to us as well. She even sent us several previews for us to see the very next day! Her level of professionalism was unmatched with any of the other vendors we hired for the big day. We had such an amazing time working with Amy and hope that we get the chance to work with her again in the future. If you decide to work with Amy, it won't be long before you, too, will be singing her praises!

We are so glad we chose Amy Ellis to photograph our engagement session and wedding day and would recommend her to anyone! At our first meeting, we immediately felt comfortable with her and were impressed with her portfolio, and loved her composition. She beautifully captured the important moments of our special day and the photographs feel real and natural, not staged. Amy had great ideas and was very welcoming to any input we shared. Choosing a wedding photographer is such a huge deal, and picking Amy was one of the best decisions we made!

Amy is a reliable and professional but very fun and talented photographer. Photography is important to people because it allows one to keep an important memory forever. Amy's ability to capture these special moments and memories while telling a story through her photos is exactly what people look for when taking pictures. Amy is always open to creative ideas and her sweet personality makes her very easy to work with. She is efficient with her work with quick turn-a-rounds in her edits. Her pricing is also reasonable and worth every penny. I am so happy that I found Amy to photograph my wedding and maternity photos. I plan to use her for plenty more future photo sessions and events!

"Amy and her assistant were a true pleasure to work with and I would recommend Amy Ellis Photography to anyone in a heart beat! From our initial meeting with her she was very easy to work with and organized, she even put together a great welcome packet which explains so many questions we had! The very fact that she was so organized took a lot of the stress off of us during the wedding planning phase. She responded to emails very quickly and was so open to answering all of our questions and addressing our concerns. Amy is a young professional with so much passion in her work and her love for photography really shines through her creative and classy photos. She shot our engagement shoot with our 2 dogs and was so patient with them and us throughout the entire process and the photos came out beautifully. She even got our photos back to us very quickly (within 2 weeks for the engagement shoot) and we really couldn't have been happier with them. Periodically throughout our engagement she would check in with us to make sure everything was OK and we were just so appreciative of that. Even on our wedding day, she was prepared and ready to go. She knew what shots we wanted and helped give us friendly reminders throughout the night when the photo op presented itself. Amy Ellis is professional, organized, and a truly amazing photographer. If you want great pictures, great customer service, and someone you can truly rely on I highly suggest you hire this amazing woman!"

We both knew Amy was the one we wanted to capture our special day from the moment we met her! Her talent was evident, and she understood our style and ideas for our day. Fast forward to the Wedding weekend…Amy was absolutely fabulous! She meshed with our friends and family, and made the entire process fun and exciting for everyone. There aren’t words to describe how fabulous our pictures are, and we would recommend Amy to ANYONE that is looking for someone to capture every moment of their special day. We are both looking forward to her capturing all of the exciting moments in the future!

When Kevin and I were looking for a photographer, we kept drawing ourselves to the pictures of the moments, the laughing, the “story” pictures, because that’s how we wanted to remember our special day, the story. Once we saw Amy’s photographs we knew that was what we wanted captured. Then after we met her it was so evident she was the easiest person to work with. She was always willing to have a quick chat if you had a question, or let us know her ideas and was so flexible, which is perfect when everything else is so stressful. Like any wedding, things don’t go as planned and she was awesome in coming up with new plans and was very calming. The moments she captured on our day were the perfect mix of emotions and her presence at the wedding was intertwined with all of our guests, I had no idea she was even photographing around us, it was all so natural. If you want timeless photos that bring you right back into that feeling of your photographs, this is the person to be in charge.
