welcome to eLLe photography!
eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY is a boutique photography studio based in the San Francisco Bay Area, specializing in weddings and family portraits. We believe that the photos we take should reflect you, your style, and your day. We look for little moments -- the stolen glances, the little kisses, the looks of joy -- and we click the shutter when they happen. Our style reflects these real moments, but always with an eye for beauty.
We are a little bit quirky, a lot creative, and we love working with people. We see beauty in the everyday and in everyone. We love all things pretty, fresh-cut flowers, happy people, classic novels, clean sheets, monograms and polka dots, NPR and the New York Times, 1960s photography, technicolor, New Orleans, the pantone pallet of colors, red velvet cake, thank-you notes, fashion illustration, paper calendars, Paris, film, watercolor, and abstract art. We like to stay inspired by regularly visiting museums and watching old Hollywood films.
Please click on the galleries to the left to see a sample of our work. eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY has been featured in numerous publications, including industry darlings, "Style Me Pretty," "Grey Likes Weddings," "Snippet & Ink," "Classic Bride," and Matchbook Magazine. Laura Monfredini also takes fine art photographs, and was a 2011 Featured Contender in the internationally acclaimed "Hey, Hot Shot" competition sponsored by the Jen Bekman/20x200 Gallery in New York.
