Wedding and Portrait Photography
Serving Upstate, NY and beyond!

We are best friends who love doing life together and love doing what we do! You don't get more opposite than us, but I guess that's why they say,
"opposites attract".
Working together as a team for 18 years is something we love doing,
especially when it comes to
raising our 4 kids. 
Becoming professional wedding photographers is not what we had set out to do when we entered the world of photography. But, 10+ years later,
here we are, and enjoying every moment!

There are so many things we love about being wedding photographers.
Here are our top 3!
1. Getting to share with couples the most important day of their lives.
2. Making our couples and their bridal parties laugh... a lot.
3. Helping our couples feel as relaxed
as we are. 

We are excited as we head into another year
of working with some amazing couples!

Hi there, we're Josh and Ellen!

Senior & Family Portraits


Can we just say how much we love our couples? We do our very best to build a relationship with our couples prior to their special day so that when we show up on the wedding day they are excited to see us as friends, not just "the photographers". We love relationships we build with our brides and grooms!

He just asked you to marry him and you said, "YES!". We adore shooting engagement sessions. We get to capture that sparkle in her eyes, her cheeks as they blush when he whispers in her ear that he loves her, and that proud smile he wears the whole session that tells us and the world that he's the luckiest guy ever. 

Our families are so special to us. We have had the honor of watching so many families grow. We've shot their engagement sessions, weddings, then maternity sessions, and even their child's first birthdays. As they continue to grow their family, we are right there to capture all of those special times. Before you know it, those little ones are in front of our cameras once again for their Senior portraits. It's such an amazing thing to be a part of!

Get a closer look at what we do and how we work.. We have created a variety of blogs for you to read. Check out a few of our sessions along with some fun and informative blogs. We've also created an online magazine which you can find here as well!

When you book a wedding or session with us, we want you to know exactly what your images are going to look like. We strive to make every image we produce beautiful and timeless. Our style is light, bright, vibrant, with a pop of color. You can rest assured that any session you do with us your images will look like this style our clients absolutely love.

"Look at this picture of us kissing in the rain! How wonderful Josh and Ellen were to take a disaster of weather kind of day and turn it into pure magical bliss. They faced the weather head on with us laughing and smiling through it!"

- Mike and Ashleigh

"We just had our engagement session done with Ellen and it was amazing! First to start, Ellen was beyond accommodating with scheduling and location, especially during these ever changing times! The session itself was perfect! My finace is not a picture person and was dreading it, but after meeting Ellen, and the fun we had, he left there so happy and excited! She kept it light and simple to be ourselves and show our love and who we are as a couple! Can't wait for Ellen and Josh to shoot our wedding!"
