Elizabeth is such a loving, ambitious, passionate person and she puts 110% of these attributes into her work. Elizabeth is as good as it freakin gets! I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and was hit hard by her work, she automatically went to the... Read More top of my list and we are so happy that she could shoot our wedding. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how her personality and passion matched her crazy amazing talent, guys she is a force! On our big day She focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots with my husband were just a blast. Through out the course of day Elizabeth continued to bring a thirst and enthusiasm for capturing our wedding and what made that day so special for us, i know those images will be personal and we cant wait to see them ALL. Photography was a big part of the day for us and having the talent and personality of Elizabth entrusted with that responsibility was a dream. Thanks Lotus Artistry (can't wait for the birth of our first baby now to share with you)

I fell in love with Elizabeth's work long before I even got to meet her. She had done some photos for a friend of mine and I was just blown away by the angles, the moods, the contrasts in colors. Every picture told a different story. So naturally when it came time for my... Read More engagement photos I knew I needed to get in touch. From the first meeting to the engagement photos to our wedding photos, Elizabeth has always been accommodating, kind, fun, and sincere. For a couple that is not fond of a camera, she certainly works wonders! Her positive vibes and impeccable eye for detail will make you in awe of each session. The day of our wedding she kept in contact with me from morning to night, constantly rolling with the beat, and focused not only on taking the pictures but making sure I was okay throughout the entire day. I've been married for four days and the handful of photos that she has sent me so far are incredible! I ugly cried for a good 10 minutes y'all. Needless to say I feel like I've gained quite a talented friend and I can't wait to take more photos in the future with her! Thank you Elizabeth for being the badass you are, you're moving mountains my dear!

Elizabeth is amazing. I took a boudoir/bridal shoot before the wedding and she made me feel so comfortable. I've struggled with my weight after baby and she got all the perfect angles for flattering shots. Our wedding day she was awesome! She was professional and thought of... Read More every shot I could want. Our wedding was an evening wedding so I was concerned how the nighttime pictures would look since we were outside with very intimate lighting. Again! She did amazing! Maybe I'm bias but I feel like my wedding pictures are her best work! ☺️☺️💕💕💕 I highly recommended her especially if you are into more candid shots instead of posed pictures. All the other photographers I researched were very basic and she definitely is an artist!
