      Hi, everyone! Did you know that I have 100% 5-star reviews on Yelp? Yup. I’m not saying that I’m making a post just for that, because that’d be incredibly self-serving, but when it hit 25 reviews of 5 stars (though with Yelp’s algorithm of hiding reviews, it’s actually 36) I thought maybe I should make a commemorative post. Recently, some kind words people have shared on my Yelp page have been:

      I couldn’t be happier that Elissa shot our engagement and wedding photos. Everything was above and beyond expectations, from the photos themselves, to turnaround time, to her communications with us. – Jordan

      I cannot recommend Elissa enough for wedding photography! Elissa came recommended to me from a friend, and I am beyond happy with how our wedding photos turned out and my entire experience working with Elissa! – Shelley

      So happy to have run across Elissa on another friend’s post.  She photographed our elopement and I just got the pictures back–couldn’t have asked for more!  I’m an awkward picture taker but she made us feel at ease and had great suggestions.  She was also very down to earth and I barely even noticed her during the ceremony so I could concentrate on getting married :) – Tricia

      Also, remember those donation-based elopements I offered a couple of months ago? I’ve decided to expand on that idea as a more permanent structure of Elissa R Photography!

      Starting with my 2017 season, a portion of every wedding I shoot will go to a group that is doing good work and needs our support. Those include, but are not limited to, these organizations:

      A big thank-you to my couples who support my business and thereby help to support civil and reproductive justice and climate science. ❤️
