A little bit about me. I was born in Estonia. I have been here in the states since I was two. I grew up in the west coast (Vancouver WA to be exact ). I grew up in the city life and somehow I ended up in Missouri and happened to love it. If you told me that this is where I would end up I wouldn't believe you! But here we are living a beautiful country life.  I met my husband in Missouri 14 years ago; we didn't waste much time and got married 13 years ago. We dated a whole 1.3 years before tying the knot. We have three beautiful daughters ages 12 ,8, 1 and they complete our little family. I truly feel blessed. 

hello. I'm Ella 


My husband travels for work; its not easy but staying busy and being creative makes it a tad bit easier. We love to travel so much; one of  favorite places we visited was Puerto Vallarta. We traveled there for our ten year anniversary  and got some amazing photos done to capture this mile-stone in our lives. Sitting here writing this I cant believe that it has been 11 year already. Time flies so fast, so enjoy the beautiful moments and never sweat the small stuff in life.

The wedding is a beautiful celebration to the next chapter in your journey together as husband and wife, Capturing those memories are so important to share with friends and family and later on your children. It's your first family heirloom. When I shoot a wedding I tell the story of  the day, not just the perfectly posed ones although those are important too ;) When I am  shooting a wedding I look for the micro moments in the day; interaction, those hugs, those tears. All those beautiful moments that when you open your album you can feel all of those emotions all over again.  When my clients tell me they cried looking through their images (good cry) I know I did my job. Lets be honest you want someone you like hanging out with you on the most important day of your life, someone who doesn't make you feel awkward. To capture those authentic moments as they unfold, you want someone that you are comfortable with, that blends with the crowd, has a good time and gives direction when needed. I would love to get to know you to see if we are a good fit. I will go above and beyond for my clients because it's your special day.   

I believe the marriage is greater than the wedding day
