Everyone seemed to love you and is excited to see the pics!

Thank you for the first taster photos- they are stunning. The camel is hilarious – and I love how you captured the wind filling the veil. Just magical. The photos really help me reflect on the day – it went so fast. I can’t say how happy I am to have done the photo-shoot before the blessing …. and the rain. Just priceless. I can’t wait to see the others.

It was such a pleasure to have you there on both days, fitting seamlessly in with the guests and putting them, and me, at ease. I couldn’t believe it when Toby fireman’s lifted you for the game!

Thanks so much – I have seen the email to the dropbox - just havent had a chance to open it yet- it is killing me!
Going to try and sneak away from my desk which is in the middle of the newsroom to a more private area to have a look as soon as I can. Everyone who has seen your photos thinks they are AMAZING- lots of people think it looks like a glossy magasine shoot.
They are just beautiful- such happy faces – Anna

They’ve come out great and we’re getting so many compliments to pass on to you. Next step is figuring out what we want to print! ~ Lauren!

Hi Elly,
Well what can I say…..
Firstly, thank you for being such an important part of our wedding day.
Your casual yet sincere approach was thoroughly enjoyable and put eveyone at ease. Thank you for carrying out the ad hoc requests for childrens and dog photos….trust me the dog one was not planned!!!
Also thank you so much for staying on later than planned, 4 hour package that was really 8 hours….So very generous of you, I can’t thank you enough.
From the few pictures I saw, I was blown away and cannot wait to see the rest!
  Mary and Neil.

Hi, we just wanted to say thanks so much for Saturday! Everybody commented on how lovely you were and what a great job you did (and that’s even before seeing the pics!)
It’s a real talent to be amongst a load of strangers and fit in and make us feel so relaxed, you did a brilliant job. We are very greatful.
Can’t wait for the photos!  Lucy and Dan.

We really love the photos you took, they’re wonderful, you have a very creative eye and the joy that the photos have brought and continue to bring us and our family really is priceless. It made our day having you as our photographer, so a MASSIVE thank you from us Jx

Elly! The photos are STUNNING! I’m sitting in Starbucks (classy) looking at them on my iphone and alternately crying and laughing out loud! Love love love- thank you. Can’t wait to see them on a proper screen!  Maddie and Jack, married 11th May 2013

Oh Elly they’re so beautiful! Thank you so, so much. Martyn and I have just scrolled through them with the biggest smiles on our faces! We love them! You’ve documented our special day so beautifully! Thank you thank you!!!  Married July 6th 2013

Just got back from honeymoon and seen the gorgeous photos on your blog! I can not wait to see them all and I have heard from a few people that they saw me on your stand at Olympia!? Very exciting! I wanted to say how fantastic it was having you there on the day. A few people have commented since the wedding about how awful it is to stand posing for pictures all day and I am able to say actually no, I didn’t feel like that at all! You fitted into our day perfectly and I can not thank you enough!


A BIG BIG thank you for saying yes to photograph our wedding at St Paul’s Cathedral. We both fell in love with your vision and knew we could count on you to get exactly what we were looking for. Sorry for the early start on the day but both you were amazing and we had so much fun. The day went by really quickly for us, so going through the online album has been fantastic to let us relive those memories, in such a natural yet unique way.

We’d recommend you to anyone!! Lots of love, Vivien and Rupert

As soon as I finished work I whizzed round to my moms so we could look together. I LOVE the photos, there are even photos of my dad smiling, THIS DOESNT HAPPEN! I adore the shoes photos, and my little brother and sisters look so cute! I’m so happy with the vintage treatment, it makes them look special. Honestly, I’m so so so so happy with them, thank you so much :)

 The photos look absolutely beautiful and thank you so much again for capturing our very special day. MATT AND BEK DAVIES

 I had a good look through the photos again this morning. It made me realise how great your style is-so much was captured I felt I was re-living the day!  Joanne Presetige

Just a quick review for the night photography course:

“The course was a step on from the daytime photography course I had been on previously. It enabled me to explore the settings of my camera more in depth and with Elly’s guidance, it allowed me to use my camera to the full so I could take great pictures in low light conditions. We battled against the good old British weather and we managed to find some places in London that still allowed me to get some good angles and produce some shots that I was very happy with.

My main aim of the night was to try to get some night time shots of London landmarks that would accompany some shots I had taken previously. Elly was able to give assistance and guidance to allow me to achieve the effect that I was hoping to achieve and we were both very happy with the resulting images. I recommend the course and will be looking to go on the next night time photography course to further build on what I had learnt.”

‘Thank you so much for being a part of our day – we wouldn’t have had any other photographer there, you were just wonderful’

We just got the photos and the mag, wow they are amazing.

‘I cant imagine how are photos would have turned out if you hadn’t shot them?? You captured our wedding perfectly. Thats really exciting about the other magazine too’

Wow, what can we say? The photos are Amazing!

Months ago when we booked our wedding and chose the theme we knew you were the ideal photographer to capture the day and you haven’t let us down. You captured every moment of our day perfectly even paying attention to the little details that usually go unnoticed.

We are so happy that we chose you as our wedding photographer and even more happy that you were available to shoot our day with your ever growing popularity! You truly deserve it though Elly, our photos are fantastic and make us look like film stars (so family and friends have told us!) I’ve been asked several times are my pictures airbrushed! Which I think is just testament to your ability as a photographer that you can make people look great in photos.

My brother & future sister in law want you to photograph their wedding now after seeing how amazing our photos are, especially as they saw on the day how relaxed it was and we didn’t have to stand in uncomfortable poses everything just felt so natural.

We love the photos you have used on your website and thankyou for your kind words…I don’t think I’ve ever been described as a ‘beauty’ well maybe by Lee but he has to say that he’s my husband!

But now we have the unbearable job of selecting our favourite shots to put in an album which is proving very hard as there is so many we love! We are very keen to find out details and prices of the albums you offer.

Thankyou again Elly you have given us a fabulous record of our wedding day.

Kelly & Lee

I picked you because my wedding is a story, and you capture that. I don’t want to spend an hour faking it and posing, our story is the interaction between us and our guests, it’s the intimate moments that make us a couple, your photos inspire unforgettable memories. Definitely grow the Elly brand

I booked you as my partner and I are not into the posed romantic “god I love you shots” I loved how you capture it without posing. Your photography style suits our wedding gorgeous, different and fab x plus you’re willing to travel on our bus :-)

“I must mention Battersea based photographer Elly Mac. We only had a brief chance to chat, but her work is divine, and so full of character. Elly’s style of photography has a wonderfully relaxed feel – tailored so personally to her individual couples that you really feel you’re seeing into their personalities, as well as little insights into their relationships, at just a glance of their photographs.”

You’re work is refreshing,innovative and your enthusiasm is boundless…..lovely to see someone so passionate about photography

Basically, we not that fussy about photos, but we will be having a formal ceremony so we will need a few formal shots at first. However, we really liked the individual style of your photos, and how they seemed to take the essence of the day itself, which is what we would like.

Perfect thank you very much, you’re a star! You’re work is stunning so I’m not suprised you have been so popular….I’m so glad I booked early!

I found your stall at bluewater wedding fair and LOVED your style of photos. My fiancé and I would love to talk to you about prices and see some more of your gorgeous work.

I thought you’d do very well, off the back of the show. Both you as a super friendly person and your wonderfully creative work simply shone over the others.

As I remember, your images were a breath of fresh air amongst the many other stands and we spoke about your style and saturation at some length.

Saw your work at the wedding fair yesterday and I loved it!

Was great to meet you today :) will definitely email you to arrange a booking, you really blew me away with exactly what I’m looking for xxx

Was great to meet you, Matt and I will book you as soon as we find a venue :o)

So pleased I met you Saturday, have been telling everyone about my amazing photographer x

It was great chatting to you yesterday at the Bluewater Wedding Fair. As soon as I saw the examples of your work I knew that was the style I wanted for our wedding!

I saw your stand at the Bluewater wedding fair, and have admired you photos in a wedding magazine!

Feedback from Blue Water

“Love it. Yay so pretty!”  Engagement shoot in 2011 and response to Elly Mac Photos designed save the date cards.

“Thanks again for doing such a great package- it’s going to be amazing! We’re in the process of getting a vintage mini-cooper for some cool shots in front of the building too!” ~ Neil and Sof, getting married with Elly Mac Photos in 2012, booked from Hong Kong.

“She is fun, fresh, cheeky and pokes fun at the rules of wedding photography.   There is humour in her wedding photos” Married with Elly Mac Photos in 2010

Even from the one photo on your advert, your photography really stood out – I love the vintage feel you add and after looking at your facebook page, your photos really capture something different rather than the staged look most photographs have ~ Becky to be married in September 2013

We have had our engagement shoot with Elly. It was fantastic! She really put me and my partner (who was especially nervous) at ease and we had a lovely time. By the end of it we were so comfortable with getting our photos done. She is really nice and easy to get along with, and really great at stuff like replying to emails straight away, answering my millions of questions etc. We have just got our engagement shots back and I am in love with them!! I would definitely recommend her. Best wishes, Misha
Dani and Dylan  Elly, thank you so much for our photos! They are exactly what we wanted from our wedding and we’re loving the vintage finish you gave them. All our friends and family think they’re amazing too. And thank you for making it all so simple and so much fun on the day, no over-bearing photographers ordering our guests about at our wedding! Made up with the pictures. Thank you Dani and Dylan xx

Dear Elly, Thanks again for all your hard work at our Wedding in St Ives, Cornwall. The photos we’ve seen are absolutely bang-on and we can’t wait to see the rest of them! We are so glad that you enjoyed it too! It was an amazing day and you were a massive part of it, a big thank you also for the fantastic props, and for all your time in the lead up to, during and after the wedding. Thanks again, you were truly brilliant and we love your style! We are now keen followers of your blog! Married with Elly Mac Photos

I am so delighted to have come across Elly Mac’s website whilst researching wedding photographers, all those months back. Her style of photography seemed to capture exactly the feel I wanted to create with our wedding. Her gorgeous shots have a very vintage glamour to them, which I love! We had an intimate family wedding, so it was important for us that we got the right person to take our photos, Elly was just that…discreet, unobtrusive and extremely helpful.   Her approach is very relaxed, which suited us, given we were not sure initially how long we would need a photographer for on the day, nothing was a problem to her. At the Wedding, Elly was not in our faces, not telling us how to pose and this was exactly what we wanted. The photos she took reflected this; beautiful, intimate shots, capturing our memorable day in her own unique style. Everyone enjoyed having Elly around on our wedding day and people will enjoy her photos for many years to come, they are timeless! If you are looking for a photographer who will create something beautifully different…then Elly is your girl, I highly recommend her.  ~ Niamh Married with Elly Mac Photos

Our photographer was Elly Mac Photos, she was amazing and fun, my advice choose a photographer who is relaxed, professional and has the same vision as you do for your day.  Elly enhanced our day and really captured the essence of us and our wedding. The ideas she had for our wedding were exactly what she created. Married with Elly Mac Photos.


Just a quick note to let you know that we received the photos on disc, they’re great thank you. Regards
Charlotte Clarion Events.

Hi Elly,  Just a short note to thank you for all your help on Saturday. It was great having you around and you were extremely discreet. Everyone commented on how lovely you were! I  Looking forward to seeing the results of your hard work in due course! Thanks again….. Niamh   Married with Elly Mac Photos on the 24th September 2011

Hi, great to meet you too.  Your vision for the photos on our day are exactly what were looking for & it’s very exciting! Abs and Beth, getting hitched with Elly Mac Photos in May 2012.

  1. Elly came to take photos of my three young boys recently and was brilliant. She had infinite patience which was very necessary with three small Children. The shots we got were excellent and captured our boys perfectly. Thanks so much!

  2. I wanted to thank Elly (and Emily) for photographing my wedding on such short notice, I was bitterly disappointed and let down by my other photographer who decided two days before my Thursday wedding that she was cancelling!!!!!!!!!!! Elly stepped up to the challenge on very short notice to help us! She was fun, lively and really put everyone at ease. She was very comfortable just stepping in on short notice, she felt like more of a friend, not a supplier. I cannot wait to see the photographs and highly recommend her professionalism, she was understanding when payment had to be made after the wedding.
