  • Beth is nothing short of amazing to work with. Professional, put me and my fiancé at ease, funny, sweet, and of course takes beautiful photos! We were actually childhood friends back in elementary and middle school, but as often happens, drifted apart in high school and beyond. Being connected on social media allowed me to creep on her budding photography business over the years, and I was constantly amazed by what I saw. I really loved how she seemed always able to capture the “behind the scenes” moments filled with emotion, not just pre-planned posed photos. When I got engaged she was the first vendor I called! I could not wait to work with her and was not disappointed. She was quick to respond to any questions I had, and patiently went over the day-of timeline and detailed list of all the family and bridal party pictures I wanted to take. She has a great eye and skillfully guided us through both our engagement and wedding photos. Her team on the wedding day seemed to ca... Read more

  • Beth is an amazing photographer! She got a variety of different shots, adhered to the list of portraits we asked for, and was flexible when some of our wedding party was late to the shoot. She also did a great job on my bridal portraits, despite the 96-degree heat, which was draining on everyone involved. We definitely recommend her!

  • I found Beth via the Knot after the photographer I originally booked found out she was pregnant and due the week of my wedding (so had to cancel). I was really anxious about planning my wedding from out state and finding the perfect photographer. My fears were immediately relieved after booking Beth and working with her to capture my wedding. I loved her candid and authentic style from her website and knew this was the feel I wanted for my pictures. Every step during the planning process with Beth was so seamless and easy. She was always quick to respond, answered all of my questions, and was happy to jump on a call with me to go over my goals for the wedding and timing. I was already pleased with her service but was then blown away on our wedding day. We had a very large bridal party, large family, and also had my toddler nephews and niece to coordinate. Beth was excellent at getting everyone in order and getting through those pictures quick! The candid photos with my husband were... Read more

  • Hello, We used Beth Ely Photography and she was one of our favorite vendors from our wedding day!!! She was so professional and she is really gifted and talented with photography. I originally found Beth on The Knot after I searched for local photography. She truly has a unique style with being able to capture the raw and natural light and the couples' beauty on the day of. I requested many family photos more than I thought I had requested. She was worried about our timeline on the day of. However, she still managed to capture all photos and all family photos that we requested! Our wedding day went by so fast, and I am so happy we have her work to look back on! If you are looking for a wedding photographer, Beth is your gal! ~Alexandra

  • After searching through wedding websites, reading reviews, and doing our due diligence on pricing, photo quality, etc. we decided Beth Ely was the best choice to be the photographer for our wedding. That decision did not disappoint one bit. Beth had multiple packages, services, and pricing options so it was easy to get the coverage we needed for our wedding at a more than fair price in comparison to other photographers in the region. What you get from Beth goes beyond what you may expect and certainly what we expected. We did a first look prior to the ceremony and Beth was extreme helpful in scouting the area and setting up this part of the day, after the initial spot we had planned on using wasn’t suitable due to the weather. Beth going above and beyond did not stop there and simply continued throughout the night. Following the ceremony we had large family photos to take with multiple children involved. What could have easily taken an hour or more seemingly breezed by as she w... Read more

  • Beth was one of our favorite persons that we worked with for our wedding. She put us right at ease, even (importantly) the groom, who is an introvert and was really dreading being the center of attention for a whole day. But Beth was incredibly down-to-earth and professional and made us both feel very comfortable. And the photos came out beautiful! My whole family was raving about how gorgeous the setting looked - our wedding took place on a rainy day in a garden in the "early spring" before anything had bloomed because the winter had been so terrible. But wow! It looked beautiful! And we loved that not only did she manage to capture all of our moments (seemingly without being seen), she seemed to make it to every table, too, and get photos of almost all of our 140 guests. AND she sent me the photos 2 weeks AHEAD of schedule. I really can't say enough about her - highly recommend!

  • I found Beth Ely on the Knot and am SO happy that I chose her to shoot my wedding day! Her and a team of two associates photographed and videoed my big day and I could not have been happier! My husband (then-fiance) and I met up with Beth on a chilly day in February and Beth managed to keep us in good spirits as we shot in some pretty-chilly temperatures. We were very pleased with how the engagement shoot turned out and had Beth design our Save-the-Dates. Needless to say we recieved plentyyy of compliments on those beauties! I cannot begin to list all of the compliments I received on behalf of Beth and her team from the actual wedding day; "they were so calm!" "they were so cool!" "they were very unobtrusive" were just a few reocurring compliments I've been hearing. I had anticipated the cocktail hour portrait session to be a little stressful and hectic but boy was I wrong. Beth was very organized and made it so I was able to sip on a refreshing glass of wine throughout all of the ... Read more

  • I have known Beth practically my whole life, so I was beyond thrilled to have her as the photographer for our wedding. But what I didn't realize at the time is just how amazing she actually is. We had a destination wedding in Isla Mujeres, Mexico with about 60 guests. Beth captured some really fun, candid moments throughout the preparations, ceremony and reception. She also took some BEAUTIFUL beach and sunset portraits. My friends and family are totally raving about her pictures. Beth also kept us on schedule, which was MUCH appreciated so that we could enjoy our reception. Additionally, Beth was super quick with her turn-around time - I had our pictures in less than a month - amazing!! I've had friends that had to wait 6 months or longer for their pictures - not the case with this photographer. If you have the opportunity, hire Beth to capture your great moments in life - you won't regret it!

  • Beth was amazing! She was well organized and kept our crazy crew in line. Our pictures turn out beautifully and they were ready by the time we got home from our honeymoon. I love looking at our pictures and every time I do I find a new favorite. She captured every moment perfectly. When I look at the pictures I can even see the amount of love that was in the room. I know hiring Beth to be my wedding photographers was one of my best decisions.

  • Amazing shots! Beth did an amazing job at our wedding! We were married in Charlotte, NC on May 22, 2010. The weather was beautiful and we had our ceremony and reception outside in a garden. Beth captured all of the traditional family shots in record time, with minimum hassle and the uncanny ability to keep everyone smiling and happy. Our favorite photos by far were during the session with just my new husband and myself. She had scouted out the garden and found several cozy little locations that made amazing backdrops, and we were only away from our guests for a very short time. Her candid photos were fantastic, from people rocking out on the dance floor to a quick intimate conversation between the flower girl and myself. She seemed to always be on hand to capture a moment while easily blending in with the rest of the guests. We would recommend her to anyone!

  • As mother of the bride, I found Beth to be both a talented photographer and a joy to work with. She is consistently unflappable and upbeat, even in trying circumstances. She kept the bride smiling beautifully through her portraits on the hottest day of the year, and adroitly shuffled family/wedding party pictures to accommodate a very tardy best man. With a tight budget, we booked only Beth without a second photographer for just 6 hours. I know this was a challenging assignment with three families’ worth of portraits and a 4 1/2 –hour event with 115 guests, but the resulting shots were wonderfully representative of the day and those who attended. Professionally and personally, I couldn’t be more pleased that we chose Beth as our photographer!
