Elli took faI 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!ll 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.

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

“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!!!”

Thank you sooooooo much for making my day as wonderful as you did. “

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!”
