Sweet Words

Carly Mundle, Guelph Backyard Wedding

“Elli is fantastic to work with! We had the pleasure of having her take both our engagement and wedding photos. She is very easy going and fun to be around and confidently guides you throughout the day. We were so pleased with the quality of photos and the amount of effort that she put into making sure that we were happy. Our friends and family were also so impressed with everything. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!”

Andrea Williams, Cambridge Mill Engagement

“My fiancé and I are very happy to have met Elli and to have worked with her. Elli has always been professional and accommodating especially ad we changed our wedding plans during the pandemic. Her services are very fairly priced, compared to others in the market. During our engagement session Elli was warm and friendly and that put us at ease as she guided us though how to pose and look natural. We are very happy with how our pictures turned out and would highly recommend her services.”

Cassandra Chitton, Rock Glen Engagement

“Elli has been great to work with! My fiancé and I are not big picture people and always feel awkward but she was able to direct us and make us feel comfortable with her during our engagement pictures – and we got some amazing shots!! Can’t wait to see her work for our upcoming wedding! We also got the best opportunity to include our dog in the pictures as well – she definitely stole the show!”

Carly Mundle, McMaster University Engagement Shoot

“Elli was fantastic to work with! She made us feel really comfortable and took tons of photos with different backgrounds and poses to ensure that we got what we were looking for. We can’t wait to work with her again on our wedding day.”

Jessica Laurie-Robar, Cambridge Engagement Shoot

“Elli is an absolutely amazing photographer. Very personable, funny, and she made us feel so comfortable- which made our engagement photos that much better! We were pretty nervous (I’m not a photo person usually!) but she went the extra mile to help us prepare and it’s so amazing how she can capture our essence with just 1 photo shoot. I cannot wait for our wedding with her.

Natalie Leitch, Erin Family Shoot

“Elli Bel Photography was professional and personable when working with our big family. Her creative ideas were appreciated as was her willingness to explore the scenery options we suggested. Our photos were immediately ready for previewing and I couldn’t help but smile as I looked through our photo collection. Thank you again for helping to capture some wonderful memories!

Kelly Gosse, UoG Engagement Shoot

“Could not have asked for a better engagement shoot! Elli was such a joy to have as a photographer. From the moment we emailed she was very quick to respond and had us out on location very quickly. She definitely knows her way around a camera and was very patient involved with the kids to have them involved.
Our engagement pictures are everything we hoped for and more. Can’t wait until our wedding to see more of her magic!

Jessica Halma, Kitchener Engagement Shoot

“Elli’s photos are gorgeous and she’s such a joy to work with! She really likes to have fun with her clients and keep things casual. I thought that taking engagement photos during a pandemic would be difficult, but she made it really easy and was flexible and understanding of what we were hoping to see in our pictures. Can’t wait to work with her for the wedding!”

Dr. Antonia Tsallas, UoG Family Shoot

“I have hired Elli Bel Photography for several life’s milestone events including my wedding, my children’s births and first birthdays and holiday memories. I will continue to work with Elitsa for future events since she offers excellent value and amazing quality photography. I have never been disappointed with her service, commitment and professionalism.

Dr. Meredith Smith, Guelph Arboretum Family Shoot

“I recently hired Elli to do a family photoshoot with my 2 year old daughter. We had so much fun and the picture quality was incredible. We went to the arboretum and she took pictures in multiple locations around the gardens, which provided really nice variety. She brought beautiful props which made out photos unique. In addition she was so patient and kind with our two year old daughter and managed to capture so many great moments of her. if you want unique family photos with a photographer who is patient and kind with young children, i recommend Elli!”

Eva Kuczynski, Guelph Arboretum Fall Family Shoot

“Elli took fall photos of my infant son, my husband and myself at the arboretum. She was personable, really easy to work with – from scheduling (and rescheduling due to bad weather), to helping us feel comfortable in front of the camera! Her turn around time for edited photos was really fast as well! We highly recommend her for family photos.”

Beata Jeges, Guelph Maternity Shoot

“Elli is amazing, we enjoyed working with her. She is a talented photographer, who is very professional and enthusiastic.Great attention to detail. She connects well with her subjects. Thank you for the wonderful experience.”

Christine Poulin, Guelph Arboretum Family Shoot

” We had so much fun shooting with Elli on Sunday! Her photos are so beautiful, we couldn’t be happier with our experience.” 

Heather and Jon, Mississauga Backyard Wedding

“Working with Elli was an amazing experience! It was such a relief to feel completely at ease all day knowing Elli was there getting the shots. Elli was creative with the little space she had in our backyard, she really incorporated the back foliage and décor. When we went off-site she gave us great direction and she has such a great eye for background and poses. Elli had great pre-planning and made sure we got all the shots with all the family and combos of people that we wanted. Elli is the sweetest person ever, but she also knows how to make sure your guests and family remember that she is priority for photos, which is exactly what you want. I will be recommending Elli to everyone!

Kim and Scott, Mono Mills Wedding

“Elli, you captured so many of the emotions and so perfectly. The more we look at the photos, the more we enjoy them. You were wonderful to work with and very professional every step of the way. You made us feel so comfortable and we really appreciated the direction. The photos turned out natural, not over posed.  You captured our essence as a couple. Thank you Elli for being there to capture our special moments.  They will always be cherished.”

Vanessa and John, University of Guelph Engagement Shoot

“Elli is absolutely the best. My fiance and I are so camera shy and awkward; I really thought it was going to show in our photos! I couldn’t be more than wrong!! Elli from the first phone call and meeting was so personable, professional AND organized! 
She made my fiance and I feel as comfortable as we could in front of the camera! I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us for our big day! 
Thank you for everything Elli!!!”

“Absolutely incredible experience! I LOVED how Elli was not afraid to stand up for the bride and have her best interest at heart! She really took the initiative and took the extra step to make my day perfect!! She did noy beat around the bush, was direct, which was refreshing on getting the job done. Thank you sooooooo much for making my day as wonderful as you did. “

Maude Stephany, Guelph Family Shoot

Lisa and Nathaniel, Drayton Winter Wedding

” Elli was amazing to work with, we had a lot of fun, and she let me be me during the shoots! Thanks for all your hard work! “

Alexandra Porter, Guelph Portrait Session

” Over the past few months, I’ve had to readjust the way I see myself, transitioning from a theatre student to a graduate. From a follower to a leader. I’ve spent many years absorbing what I could from my teachers and mentors in order to prepare myself to continue learning and growing on my own. Modelling was a role I stepped into in order to rediscover myself as well as build connections, travel, and meet new people that I might hopefully be able to learn from. Working with Elli Bel Photography exceeded my expectations and not only produced photos that I believe capture who I am, but also produced conversation, inspiration, and hopefulness that I am taking the steps to be a leader in my own life while remaining a student to the world. I hope to continue building these connections while I pursue my own artistic creations and I can’t wait to work with Elli Bel Photography again soon!”
