Hi, I'm Eleanor! and my name means light.

Ever since childhood, I’ve fully embraced that name meaning as I’ve sought to shine the love of Jesus and use light to my advantage as a photographer. 







I moved to the States at age 12 and am asked daily about my British/Southern accent... so don't worry, you can ask about it too! I'm a huge advocate for park picnics, re-runs of The Office, Chick-fil-A for every meal, porch time with neighbours, working from Starbucks and leading worship at church. 


I’ve been a wedding photographer for six years because I believe I was created for it. With creativity and organization along for the ride, I love planning and capturing days that allow for breathing room, celebration, reverence and beautiful portraits.

My heartbeat is to glorify Jesus in all I do, and there’s not a more powerful picture of Christ and the pursuit of His Church than a wedding day. The world is full of so much colour, and I’m tasked with acknowledging it… bringing out the vibrancy… celebrating the richness of creation and the depth of people.

Welcome to the website, my friend. I’m so glad you’re here and I can't wait to get to know you! Drop me a message on the contact form and I would love to connect with you and serve you through wedding or lifestyle portrait photography. 

I’m a 26-year-old, full time photographer based in Birmingham, Alabama but natively from Brighton, England.

the why

1

...because I love people. That's really what it comes down to. Friendships are incredibly valuable in my life, so to develop connections with my couples is what it's all about for me. To walk with you through engagement is an honour, and to celebrate you on wedding day through photography is the longest adrenaline rush ever!

2

...because this art sets my soul on fire. It's exciting to have details and people before you to pose, engage with, style and document. Ever-changing light situations keep my photography muscles strong, elaborate sparkler exits and intimate moments juxtapose one another beautifully, and I'm always on the move!

the why

3

...because I believe this job is ministry and has power to encourage. Engagement is a hard season, and we all need reminders of the most important thing - Jesus - and that marriage is merely a reflection of His love for us.

the why

4

...because I LOVE the ins and outs of owning a business. Every day is exciting for me - with new people, administrative tasks, sessions, edits, scouting, client communication, vendor relationships, bookkeeping, marketing.. you name it, I do it!

the why

5

...because God has so evidently called me to it. This has become my dream job and it’s one of my greatest honours to serve people through this art form that people treasure for years.

the why

In the 50+ weddings I’ve photographed, I always think of these two words: reverence and celebration. I’m convinced there are no better words to describe a wedding day! That’s my heart... to sincerely capture the celebration and reverence of this life-altering day... or should I say altar-ing!
