What city is your wedding in?

Elli McGuire Photography


I am a freelance photographer based out of Charlotte, North Carolina but always up to travel. Photography started out as a way for this introvert to get to know people; at the age of 16, I realized that I was a lot more comfortable with a camera in my hand, and that I wasn't terrible at helping people be more comfortable in front of it. A deep appreciation (and gratefulness, as I was a super awkward teenager) for that connection carried me through college and grad school; finally, I started doing small weddings and fell completely in love with the idea of using photos to tell a story.

My goal is to be your photojournalist. I believe that life is made up of a thousand beautiful moments that happen organically, not just a handful of mandatory shots, and I approach both lifestyle and weddings in this way. I'm not here to force it. I'm not here to make you look a certain way. I'm here to help it along, catch it when it happens, and deliver you proof of a split second in time that you might otherwise have forgotten.
It's an absolute honor to be considered to document your story, whether that's an engagement, a proposal, a window into your daily life, your business, or a marriage.
