Our Photography

Callie Ellen Studios’ images are creative, clean and crisp. They’re romantic, fun, and emotional. We pride ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imagery.

Here are some factors and techniques that differentiate Callie Ellen Studios Photography.

Creative Compositions

Always in search of reflections, silhouettes, foregrounds, and juxtapositions, our style is deeply rooted in creativity. As we’re shooting, you’ll see our photographers sneaking behind objects, shooting off mirrors, and running around to achieve different perspectives.

The idea is to turn ordinary into extraordinary through finding the interest of the composition in a scene that the average eye may not notice.

Photojournalism

Wedding Photojournalism takes awareness of surroundings, knowledge of human tenancies, and patience. Each image we take serves a purpose and has a point. Our images capture an emotion, tell a story, or portray a mood or feeling. That’s why you won’t see us taking random images, for example, you stuffing your face with food or staring off into space.

We’re always paying close attention to environment, listening in on conversations and anticipating that smile, laugh, tear, or hug. We have our composition in mind and we’re waiting for that special expression when we shoot.

Natural Posing

Whether you’re stiff as a board or used to being in front of the camera, we’ll make sure we give you as much direction as you need to create natural, comfortable poses.

We’re always paying attention to things like overly puckered lips, unflattering angles, and other awkward expressions. At the same time, we’re creating an environment where you’re comfortable and your personalities and affection are the focal point of the image. We’ll also be sure to come up with poses that focus on your positive physical aspects.

We Have Fun

We love setting up scenes where you and your family/friends can be silly, fun, and playful. Whether you’re jumping, doing silly poses, or expressing some inside jokes between you and your friends, we’ll be sure to have a great time during our couples session and our wedding party session.

In some scenes, the idea sometimes is to get you out of your comfort zone by getting you to do something silly, ridiculous, or even inappropriate. During those moments, and especially in between, we’re snapping away to get those smiles and natural emotions.

Advanced Post Production

Whether it’s adding textures, adding grain, removing blemishes, or any other advanced Photoshop and Lightroom effects, we’ve studied and mastered these techniques and applied it to our wedding photography. Besides these examples, we have experience in cross tone effects, single color isolation, and other advanced techniques.

While our preference is to have the majority of our images remain natural, vibrant and colorful, once in a while we’ll throw in a certain effect to complete our artistic vision of the image.

Details Details Details

You’ve spent thousands of dollars on the details of your wedding like the rings, floral arrangements, centerpieces, venues, candy bars, etc. We’re not going to let it slip past us!

We capture the details of your wedding with the same attention and with many of the same techniques as we’ve described above. Your day moves quickly and while you may not have the time to sit back and fully appreciate every detail, we’ll be sure to have gorgeous pictures of them.
