"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one." —C.S. Lewis
We're Brodie and Caroline Ellis, married best friends, who, despite our VAST differences, have created this business together. He's the brains, I'm the creativity, and I say we make a pretty good team, even if I'm a little biased. Ellis Illustrations was formed to create an outlet for my (Caroline's) creativity.
Why am I a photographer?
At our core, the most important thing to me and Brodie is our faith in Jesus Christ. Made in His creative image, Ive learned that the only why I need is you. Your story, your moments, your memories, your family & friends—I am honored to photograph each and every moment. It’s not about me, it’s about you.
It’s quite simple, really—we consider ourselves servant story-tellers. That means we want more than just a business transaction—we want to connect with you!

Golden Hour! (Seriously, it's the BEST time for taking photos—so if you're wondering what time that is—just ask—it changes based on the time of year!)
Brides & Grooms who prioritize connection and meaning with each other over the many details that can steal the true focus of their day
Paris! We’ve spent 2 different layovers in the city, and both times we ate allllll the pastries and espresso our heart could handle.
