About me

MEET YOUR
PHOTOGRAPHER

MY STYLE IS MOSTLY DOCUMENTARY AND NATURAL. FOCUSSING ON MOMENTS AND THE 'MOMENTS' INBETWEEN.

I launched Ellie Gillard photography in 2011, even in my first year, the weddings I shot were published on blogs and in magazines like Perfect Wedding and I went full time at the beginning of 2013. I love telling the story of a wedding day from my own artistic point of view, seeing it, feeling it, being part of it.

Photographically I love golden hour, window light, dark rooms, unconventional brides and grooms and oodles of love. I love unexpected venues – warehouses, pubs, town halls, galleries and restaurants and outside of London I love outdoor ceremonies in the wilderness, by trees and lakes; in tipis and forests.

I want this to be one of the easiest relationships you have with a ‘supplier’ in the run up to your wedding day, and to work with you to create awesome images that you’ll love forever. When I photograph the two of you I try to create a space where you can be authentic, where I capture the real you and not some photographers view of who you are.

Aside from my work; I lived in both East London (Bethnal Green) and South East London (in between East Dulwich and Peckham) before settling into our ‘grown up house’ with my gorgeous husband Joss and our menagerie of pets - our cats Poppy, Pippin and Midnight, and our rescue dog Benson, the newest addition to the family.

I still dabble with film photography, but digital is my workhorse.

I’m an equal opportunities photographer and love the fact that, as of now, everyone can get married irrespective of race, gender or sexuality and that is a fantastic thing.

I LOVE TO TRAVEL, TO HAVE ADVENTURE AND TO ALWAYS DRINK THE LOCAL BEER
