Ellen started a photography career over 21 years ago with her own business GEM Photography. She originally began shooting with film, documenting weddings, sporting and equestrian events. Her passion for photography and artistic approach will capture the details and raw emotion of your wedding day. Her photographic style tells your story in an a unique and creative way. Clients always compliment us on her shooting style, how pleasant and easy she is to work with.

Our History -We are the first husband and wife DJ & Photography wedding team in the capital district to offer both services and have worked together on over 1500 weddings. Although most couples enjoy working with both of us as a husband and wife team, our services are also available separately.

Simply fill out our contact form on the web site with your information, and check off what services you need.

We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest in our services!
