Dan & Steve   Ceremony, Photoshoot, & Reception – Caversham House “What can we say to the woman who has literally captured the most precious moments in our lives? Ella is not only an absolute professional but she is a genuine beautiful soul. Her goal is simple: to get the best possible pictures to make you and your loved one remember your day with perfection. From the moment we met over a year ago to book in our date to the moment she left the reception, she made us feel completely at ease and comfortable in her presence. Nothing ever felt awkward or forced – it was like a friend was with you wanting to share in your day as much as she wanted to capture it. Her assistant Liz was equally as professional and warm hearted. My husband and I can not recommend her and her company highly enough. THANK YOU ELLA FOR MAKING OUR DREAM WEDDING SOMETHING WE WILL REMEMBER FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES.” – Dan & Steve Advice For Other Couples Getting Married There are 2 pieces of advice we feel like we can give couples. Firstly, as crazy as the lead up to your big day is, try as much as possible to make sure you are not running around like crazy on your actual day. We had a wedding that started at 4pm. We woke up, had some breakfast with our I DO CREW, casually started hair and make-up, finalised our speeches and had some time for some beautiful moments with our mums and besties before the pace of the day took...

She made the whole experience exciting and easy. Ella produced BEAUTIFUL photos and captured our day perfectly! Thank you for providing us with a lifetime of wonderful memories that we will treasure forever. Advice For Brides My advice for any bride is most importantly, to be organized. Keep everything in a file and make sure you print all of your receipts to keep track of everything. It’s also super important to look around, don’t just go with the first person you get a quote from. Weddings are expensive so shop around and get lots of quotes before making a final decision. When it comes to music it’s super important to spend a lot of time on this. Music can either make or break a wedding. Take the time to do a list for the night. Break it down into two sections, an “eating dinner” list and a “party” list. This will ensure that all genres of music is covered for the night so everyone will be up on the dance floor partying the night away. Lastly, just relax and enjoy your day and night.

Samantha & Ethan Ceremony – Old Broadwater Farm Photoshoot – Old Broadwater Farm, Buesselton Beach Reception – Old Broadwater Farm “Well!! I honestly don’t even know where to start when talking about Ella and her photography. Our photo’s from our big day are ABSOLUTELY incredible, I couldn’t of dreamt for them to be any better. To say Ella is amazing is an understatement. From the first meeting with Ella we knew she was going to make our big day fun, full of laughs and amazing. To the endless emails prior to the big day- Ella not only gave advice on photography but helped and gave advice on all the smaller aspects of the wedding. Nothing was ever too difficult and no question was ever silly. Ella captured every moment of our big day at every angle possible, never was there a dull moment with Ella who is always up for having a laugh, and never was there a moment we felt uncomfortable or ‘posed’. We can honestly say Ella made our day perfect! We cannot put into words how happy and grateful we are with Ella and her work and the memories we now have forever, we couldn’t have wished for a better photographer and cannot recommend Ella and her team enough!! So once again a big THANK YOU!” Lots of love Ethan & Sam  Tips for Future Brides   Take in every single moment!  From the start of the day to the last minute.

Ella Intro

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I am going to be 100% honest here, I do not like blogging. I would much rather be meeting with you to discuss your wedding, photographing your wedding or editing your images! However, I understand, you want to see more of my wedding photography, you want to see images from the beginning to the end of a wedding, you might want to see what your venue looks like in different seasons or decorated in different ways, from Perth weddings to Swan valley weddings, weddings down south and more, and you might want to see what great wedding suppliers my brides used, I hear you! So, when I can bring myself to do it I promise I will blog! I don’t know how consistent I will be especially during the busy wedding season but please feel free to check back here every now and then to see the latest epic adventures and stunning Perth Weddings! I will also endeavour to link them to my Facebook page so if you are not already following me please do! And who knows, maybe one day I will get savvy/boring enough to do a mail list. Maybe. One day. Ha ha : ) If you ever have any questions about anything wedding related feel free to message or email me! I love weddings and I am always happy to help! Contact me here! That is all for me for now, have a lovely day!...
Why Choose Ella

Why Choose Ella

Hello! I was inspired to write this blog after receiving a message from a gorgeous bride……. who did not choose me to photograph their wedding! In fairness, she had not heard of Ella Otranto Photography or even seen our wedding photography before her wedding, which is my fault for not marketing better ha ha. Sadly, the bride was really unhappy with her images and just checked in to compliment me on mine. This made me sad. Flattered of course, but I just know I could have given her everything she dreamed of. And the worst part, this isn’t the first time a bride has found me after their wedding. Why do these brides believe they should have chosen Ella Otranto Photography? What do we offer as well as our stunning wedding photos? I am a woman. My team are women. We know what women worry about. We know that we can take the most epic picture, but if you think your arm looks fat, you are not going to like it! We listen. Even within our style there are lots of mini styles, maybe you like more black and white images, maybe you looove images with the veil flying, maybe you want most of your images to be a bit serious but you want a few silly ones in there as well. We get to know what you want and we deliver. We go above and beyond. Now I am not about to pull out the kayak for every wedding ha ha ha, but you need something? Chances are we have it. Getting married at Caversham House? I have...
