There are not enough words to describe how incredible it was to work with Armen. We met at a bridal show and I loved her work. When we talked later I was devastated to learn I could not afford her talent and she worked with us to find a way to fit our budget. After seeing the pictures from our wedding, I couldn't be more grateful for her willingness to work with us. She offered her beautiful home to us to get ready at, but as we lived so close to the church, we had her come to us. She came to see our houses before the wedding to get an idea of where and what she might shoot, she came to the rehearsal to take pictures and learn about all the guests involved, she worked with our priest to ensure she would not be intruding on the ceremony and everyone loved her! She is such a sweetheart and very enthusiastic. Even when we had to rush out of the church, she ensured we got all the pictures we wanted and was so speedy our bridal party was grateful. She tromped all over downtown Bethlehem with us even though it was only 30 degrees with a crazy wind! Her co photographer, Ed, did an amazing job as well. He worked with the groom's side while getting ready and stuck with the bridal party during the private cocktail hour. We got a lot of great shots I couldn't have planned if I tried. My parents loved Armen and were so happy with her professionalism and attitude and were blown away by the apologetic thank you card for letting her move around the furniture to capture the day's moments. My husband, who is quite shy, enjoyed her and her work so much he was racking his brain for other events to book with her. She is a gem and we love our pictures. Tell her what you want and she will bend over backwards to deliver, I'd recommend her to anyone and everyone!
To say Armen was perfect would be an understatement! She was beyond perfect! Everything from start to finish was incredible. Not only does she take the most amazing pictures, but she truly takes care of you as a client as well. She opens her gorgeous home to your bridal party to get hair and makeup done the day of the wedding . When we arrived she had all the rooms ready for us and just catered to our every whim! I knew from the moment we booked Armen that we made the right choice but she truly went well above and beyond any of our expectations. Look no further than Armen for your photographer, you won't be disappointed!
Our weddingReviewed on 1/20/2015 Megan H
Armen perfectly captured our wedding day. She was so amazing to work with and truly made me feel special. From the beginning of our booking process, Armen answered all and any questions or concerns that I had. She truly goes above and beyond her duties. For example, she came to our rehearsal just to meet the people involved in the wedding and set up lights at the church. Now we have priceless pictures from our rehearsal that we wouldn't have had otherwise. I would strongly recommend Armen for your special day. Her attention to detail, talent, and thoroughness are second to none.
Finding a reliable, professional and talented wedding photographer is harder than it needs to be - which we quickly realized when we started our wedding planning. We had turned down a few less-than-exciting photographers early in the process when we received a recommendation from a mutual friend to meet Armen. After a casual meeting in her home, and once we sampled some of her portfolio, it didn't take us long to trust her with the responsibility of photographing our rehearsal, dinner and wedding day. Our photos were quickly available online, and the entire shoot was quickly mailed on a flash drive. We also appreciated the option to have the photos compiled in a hard-bound book. Armen provided a very personal touch to her work, she was very accommodating to special requests, and she always had the right vantage point without being in the middle of the festivities. We are happy to recommend her.
Armen was fantastic as always! Capturing all the shots I am always happy with her photos. She has the best eye for things!
Armen did an excellent job as our wedding photographer!!!!! I have been in several weddings and always found the photographer to be bossy and downright rude, but this was not the case with Armen!!! From our intial meeting many months ago to the rehearsal and finally our big day Armen, kept a great balance of friendly and professional. Armen is also very accommodating. She opened up her beautiful Victorian mansion in historic Easton for pictures as well as the place where myself and groomsman got dressed. Armen pays particular detail not just to her surroundings, but to each individual's personality and the particular relationships shared. And that all comes out in her photos!!!!!
.I found Armen photography on the Knot and I can not be happier with my decision. She was involved in so many aspects of my wedding I lost count. She is more than just a photographer. She made sure the day went smoothly and without a hitch. She has such a warm and mild disposition you can't help but smile when you see her. She forms such a close bond with her clients that u feel like family. Their may be other photographers but only one Armen! If your reading this don't think Twice! Book Armen for all your photography needs! I can't imagine going with anyone else. Her expertise 100% contributed to my special day.
My daughters wedding was on 12/03/16 and it was perfect! Armen was a true professional in EVERY sense of the word. If there were 100 stars I would give them. Armen was amazing, organized, professional, super resourceful with everything. The sweetest person ever... words can't express our experience with Armen and gratitude for helping to make the day amazing. ❤️ We keep thinking of what other event we could have just so we could use her again...
Armen is an incredibly talented photographer. My finace grew up in Easton, so we booked Armen to take engagement pictures in his home town. Armen was so easy to work with, she never made us feel awkward or uncomfortable, even if we weren't in the best poses. We had so much fun working with her. Our pictures also came out amazing. We love every single one of them. She had great recommendations on places to shoot as well as worked with us to go to the places we wanted. The added bonus? We had all of our pictures back to us within 48 hours! We could not be happier with her work product, personality, and professionalism. Thank you Armen for capturing such incredible images for us!
I absolutely loved Armen! She was very attentive and her pictures are very relaxed and not forced or staged like some wedding photographers tend to be. Excellent quality and such a joy to work with overall.
Armen is absolutely the best photographer! Saying Armen is perfect would be an understatement. She goes above and beyond, and one of the hardest working people I have ever seen, and had the opportunity of working with. Armen is one of the most caring, genuine, and down to earth people I have ever met. From our engagement photos, to our wedding photos she made sure everything was perfect. She is the type of person that I didn't feel that we needed to meet with after booking her, because that is how much trust we had in her. My family had the opportunity of meeting her at our rehearsal dinner, because Armen felt it was important to get to know all of the most important people in my life. My family fell in love with her and her style, just like my husband and I did. She was snapping pictures left and right and got amazing candid shots that will last us a lifetime. At our wedding, I did not see Armen sit down once (not even to eat). She was in the mix and capturing amazing moments. My family and friends said that the pictures Armen took belonged in a magazine and were impressed by her professionalism, dedication, and passion. Armen is so amazing, that my sister booked her to photograph her wedding this June. Armen has a passion for what she does, and tailors her style to fit the needs and personalities of her clients. She is by far the best photographer in the tristate area, and you will not be disappointed hiring her. Not only did I get amazing pictures from Armen, but I am gaining someone who I have the pleasure of calling my friend. I can't wait to see her again in June for my sisters wedding.
Best Photographer in the areaReviewed on 10/31/2015 Julie D
Armen is honestly one of favorite people that we worked with for our wedding. She is professional, upbeat and a great photographer. I had to enlist help to chose the photos for our album because there were too many great shots (is that even possible?) That's so much for capturing our day so perfectly!
The BEST!Reviewed on 10/27/2015
Do yourself a favor and book Armen Elliott Photography ASAP! Armen photographed my May 16, 2015 wedding and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond on all aspects of her services. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture all the special moments of my wedding day. She was a dream come true. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Wow Armen we are so lucky we found you. You were amazing to work with and we were thrilled to have pictures in both of out homes NYC and Pennsylvania. You captured amazing memories from our special day. We loved working with you as well as our wedding party. You were beyond organized and made us feel comfortable throughout the process. Thank you again for everything. Love Andrea and Drew
Excellent PhotographerReviewed on 10/27/2015
My wedding was this past July. As the groom, I left it up to my wife (which she insisted haha) to pick the photographer. With her selection of Armen and the work she did, I could not imagine a better choice out there. From doing our engagement photos to the wedding photos, she was on point with every detail and moment. We absolutely love our wedding album and additional photos. She did not miss a single moment. My wife was able to get ready in her beautiful home as well. Also, she listened to what we wanted. My wife found specific ideas online and showed them to Armen. Armen then incorporated these into our photos. Lastly, she was wonderful and delightful to deal with the whole time. She devoted her entire attention and work ethic to us. She was truly exceptional. I highly recommend her. Thank you, Armen.
Armen was Amazing!Reviewed on 10/26/2015
I don't think I can express just how happy we were with our decision to hire Armen Elliott Photography for our special day. From the moment we met Armen and throughout our planning and event, she was an absolute pleasure to have around. My friends, family, and I were amazed at how friendly and professional she was, even with those guests who were not a fan of having their picture taken. She handled the day with such grace and captured our special memories with such lovely pictures. We look forward to the opportunity to work with her again sometime and highly recommend her to others.
August 2015 WeddingReviewed on 10/19/2015
We used Armen as our photographer for our Engagement photos and Wedding Day photos. Armen was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and exceeded our expectations. She was in tune with understanding what we wanted and envisioned. She made it a point to familiarize herself with our entire bridal party and immediate family. She was very creative in her work and took outstanding pictures that I never would have thought to ask for but was very grateful to have. She captured the entire day just perfectly. Anytime I went around to say hi to someone at the reception, she was right behind me ready to capture that moment. She was key to capturing photos through different angles and knew just the right timing to capture perfect sunset pictures. She was also familiar with our venue. This was a plus because she mentioned turning off the pond fountain during certain pictures, other wise it would appear as if a fountain was coming out of our heads. This is something I never would of thought of until I had seen the pictures. She was very well with handling a large bridal party, 7 bridesmaids & grooms, and large family. As soon as we met Armen we had no interest in even meeting with another photographer. We could tell instantly how knowledgeable she was and that photography truly was a passion and not a hobby. We highly recommend Armen as she was a pleasure to work with.
More than my expectationsReviewed on 10/15/2015
Mrs. Armen was not only doing her job, she was enjoying it so much and LOVING every second of it.
Armen Elliott is the sweetest, caring, most genuine person, and we loved getting to know her as both a person and a photographer. She opened her beautiful home to us for an amazing engagement photo shoot and while getting ready for our wedding. She took pictures for the entire day, and her photos are a combination of candid and posed perfectly suited our personalities. We loved every moment of working with Armen!! We would (and probably will) definitely hire her again!!
Armen made our day incredible!Reviewed on 10/12/2015
My wife (first time I have written that in words) and I are so happy with Armen Elliot Photography. Below is an email that I sent to Armen: "I wish you could have seen Barb and I going through the album! We were screaming and loving each picture more than the last! These are incredible! You have captured our incredible day so beautifully! WE CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH!!! Thank you!!"
I wish there was a sixth starReviewed on 7/01/2015 Emily K
Armen was beyond wonderful. She not only created beautiful engagement photos for us, she spent our entire wedding mingling and snapping photos and integrating herself in a way that was beautiful to see. I caught her sitting with several of our relatives, chatting away, having a wonderful time, which is so rare but so wonderful to find in a photographer. You could tell that she really loves her job and that will come out in the photographs. I cannot wait to see our final photos!
Excellent Photographer!Reviewed on 5/16/2015 Casey P
Armen did an excellent job as the photographer for our winter wedding. She is detail-oriented, organized, thoughtful, and particularly skilled at capturing authentic moments. Her photos work to tell a story that is compelling, beautiful, and true to the emotion of your special day. Armen is a talented artist who is communicative, responsive to clients’ requests, and prompt with sharing her stunning photos. Given the fact that my husband and I lived out-of-state while planning the wedding, we especially appreciated these qualities. In addition to having these qualities, Armen is also a really good sport who will go above and beyond the call of duty. For example, on our wedding day, she trekked through the snow to capture some beautiful photos of our bridal party and even helped stitch a bridesmaid’s dress when the hem came undone in the limo on the way over to the church. Throughout our wedding day, Armen was unobtrusive yet fully present. She was both easy-going and able to efficiently and effectively manage taking formal family portraits and capturing moments as they unfolded naturally. We could not have been more pleased with Armen’s work. We highly recommend her to couples who are planning their weddings!
Amazing, professional, friendly photographerReviewed on 12/20/2014 Christina B
Armen was our wedding photographer this June. She was hands down the best vendor decision we made. We initially chose Armen because of her beautiful photography and years of experience. However, what made us ultimately go with her was because we liked her, and she was also great interacting with my parents and family. Armen did our engagement session the summer prior to our wedding. We lived in Philadelphia. Prior to the session since Philly is not her city, she researched locations rather than relying on us and suggested the perfect spot for the shoot! During the session, she was thorough, patient and artistic. We received so many compliments on our engagement photos. During our engagement, we received several hand-written notes in the mail from Armen - an extra special touch that we were not expecting that got us excited for the big day. Armen lives in a beautiful Victorian house which was the most elegant backdrop for our wedding photos. Since I am not from the Lehigh Valley, we were thrilled to have a home in which to take pre-ceremony photos. After the wedding, Armen was so prompt with our digital images. However, our lives got busy, as many newlyweds' lives do! We knew we had to select our wedding photos for our album, but just did not get to it quickly. We were so grateful Armen checked in with us to make sure we had our album in time for the holidays; we even had it in time for Thanksgiving. The album was beautiful in quality and presentation. In sum, we were so pleased by not only the beautiful work she did, but also her generous support throughout our engagement, wedding and beyond as a newly married couple, too! She truly understand bride and groom couples well!
Splendid! Amazing photographerReviewed on 9/11/2014
When I first saw Armen’s bio, I was intrigued and instantaneously enthralled by her work. She seemed to capture the day one moment at the time, truly making it feel like “movie stills”. First thing that caught our attention was her genuine interest in getting to know us and telling about herself in a face to face conversation (in our case via Skype). She has this positive energy about her that just draws people towards her and makes you very comfortable in front of the camera. As part of our package we had an engagement session with her, which was the first time we met in person. After spending a couple of hours and watching her work, we knew that we made the right choice. She’s extremely talented, attentive, and very considerate of people she’s working with. On the day of our wedding she was magnificent. She took charge, but still managed to be out of the way of the mad house that was my apartment, took a noticed of small details, and captured everything that was happening that day, making sure everyone gets their spotlight. She was open to ideas and not stuck in stereotypes of wedding photography. She’s truly a photojournalist who makes you feel and look amazing. The photos from our engagement session and the wedding came out so wonderfully perfect. Her talent, skills and of course, experience speaks for itself. One look at the photos and you know it was done by a pro who takes pride in her work and cares about the people she’s photographing. Her response time to our inquiries was remarkable. Within days we had our photos posted online for friends and families to view. Both of our families fell in love with her, and how can you not. She’s captured our attention and later our hearts. Thank you Armen for your wonderful work and extraordinary pictures. (Lada)
Armen is wonderful!Reviewed on 6/06/2014 Sean N
When we were selecting a photographer, my husband and I knew that we were searching for someone who not only could capture the events of our wedding day, but the emotions surrounding each of the events. Armen did just that and more! Now as we look over our wedding photos (which arrived less than 2 weeks after our wedding), we are able to remember not just the moments, but the emotions we were feeling during each. The photos are simply stunning! Aside from the incredible photos, Armen is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is deeply, deeply invested in her work, as evidenced by the time she takes to get to know you and your husband, take engagement photos, and even attend the rehearsal. She spent almost all of the wedding day with us so that she wouldn't miss a beat, and it really was a pleasure to have her with. Armen is also very kind and respectful, answering questions and helping wherever she can throughout your planning process. I highly, highly recommend hiring Armen Elliott for your wedding day!! We are so glad that we did!
