Ellen May has turned her love for photography into a vibrant career that spans the globe.
With a lens that captures the essence of joy and happiness, Ellen’s bright and candid photography style is a testament to her passion for freezing those fleeting moments that radiate with love.
Being a small-town country girl has uniquely shaped Ellen’s perspective and approach to photography. Her work through Ellen May Photography, coupled with her bright and bubbly soul, is infused with touches of authenticity and warmth. For Ellen, it’s not just about capturing images; it’s about telling stories, and weaving narratives that emanate the unique personality of the people she photographs.
“I believe in photographing those precious, fleeting moments that you might not even notice! The in-between moments, glances, crinkle-eye smiles, and even goosebumps. There’s nothing more beautiful to me than the pure joy, excitement, and comfort of two people crazy in love.”
Ellen’s journey from her small town in lil’ old Albury to a global photographer has allowed her to embrace diverse love stories and romantic adventures in stunning locations. Her portfolio is a testament to her ability to adapt. Showcasing an array of cultures and backgrounds, each frame tells a unique tale of love.
What sets Ellen May Photography apart is Ellen’s fun and creative style, ensuring every moment captured is far from typical. She thrives on creating an atmosphere where her clients feel comfortable, allowing their true selves to shine through.
“I like to think of myself similar to my photography style… natural, bright and a touch of whimsy! I’m a love-story obsessed, colour-lovin’ giggle monster who loves nothing more than a good dance floor, a cheeky cosmo, and becoming BFFs with my clients!”
A delightful aspect of Ellen’s story is the partnership she shares with her husband, Ben. As the videographer of the duo, Ben’s unobtrusive presence adds a unique perspective to their collaborations.
“Picking someone to capture the most important day of your life is very special. While Ben doesn’t take himself too seriously, he does take that trust and commitment and creates beautiful films with it! Although currently learning and using our 2023 couples as his guinea pigs, he cares deeply about creating a great experience, as well as a great final product.”
