As one of, if not the most important vendors needed to ensure our wedding remains memorable for many years to come, the decision to pick Eli became easy after we met him and reviewed his work.

When we went looking for photographers we spent a lot of time reviewing their work, trying to decide if the shots by a photographer were right for us. What we found was an array of photographers with good work and sprinkled within that work was on or two amazing pictures, that looked like they got lucky. When we looked at Eli's work we found picture after picture that was pretty amazing. It showed that he knew what he was doing, and the results we have seen so far have been just that.

Secondly, when you work with a photographer you want someone that you are ok spending your entire wedding day. Someone that you can deal with saying, how about this picture? what about this? Eli is like that kid brother that you can't help but love. Eli is an absolute pleasure to work with. He spends the extra time to learn the names and relationships of everyone at your wedding. My family and friends loved working with him, and those that have worked with photographers before even stated that they were impressed with how personal he is.

In the end, Eli knows how to use a camera, he has a great eye for great pictures, and is incredibly personable. He may be a little bit more pricey, but is definitely worth every cent. My only qualm with Eli is since i plan to only get married once, i am struggling to figure out the next opportunity i will get to hire him.

Eli Turner is one of the most talented wedding photographers around. I struggled with writing this review because nothing I could say would even begin to do his work justice. Eli photographed our engagement session in NYC and our wedding in April in Annapolis and his work has exceeded all of my expectations. Eli is not your typical wedding photographer. You are not going to get cheesy, staged shots. He is artistic, has a creative vision, and captures true emotions. I just recently received all of my photos from him and there are so many beautiful ones that I will never begin to be able to pick my true favorites. His use of color, black & white, shadows and interesting vantage points really provided me with so many unique perspectives on my wedding.

Additionally, Eli is such a pleasure to work with. When my fiance and I were looking for a wedding photographer, we met with many. We hired Eli not only because of his amazing work, but because we knew we would enjoy his presence on our most important day. All of our guests and wedding party raved about his professionalism, but also the ease he puts everyone in. He makes you comfortable and knows exactly when to crack a joke to liven up a smile. Hiring Eli was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I would absolutely recommend any bride/groom hire him for their wedding!!!

As parents of the bride, we could not be happier with Eli Turner as photographer for our daughters wedding. Our daughter was familiar with Eli and his work and she wanted no one but him to photograph the wedding. Eli Turner was the perfect choice. He is the definition of professionalism. Our guests were very comfortable having him take candid and posed shots during the wedding and reception. He was quick about setting up group shots and getting guests to relax for photos. The results are lovely natural poses and smiles. His lighting is superb! Eli captured the essence of the event and we will enjoy these photos and memories for many years to come.

There simply isn't a better photographer out there. Eli has a great eye for a great shot, and does a fantastic job making his clients feel comfortable and natural. He made our families feel at ease for portraits, and seemed to have photographers everywhere and every time something special was happening at the wedding. Stop reading this and hire Eli!

Simply put, Eli is amazing!!! We hired him on the recommendations of our wedding planner and a couple of our friends who had used him for their wedding the year before, and we could not have been more thrilled. His images are beautiful and artistic, and really captured the moment in unique and creative ways. He was very easy to work with and attentive to detail, and he took the time to learn which pictures were important to us and then made sure to get those shots. But far and away his best quality is that he puts everyone at ease in front of the camera -- my husband and I don't always love having pictures taken of us, and the same goes for many members of our families. But Eli's sense of humor got us laughing and enjoying ourselves right away, and we all had a great time with him. That really showed through in the final product -- we LOVE our photos and will be thrilled to treasure them for years to come!

We picked Eli Turner Studios based on the recommendation of our wedding planner (Michele Hodges, she's amazing) and after looking at his work online I was confident in our choice. The one thing I was worried about was that neither my fiance nor I particularly love having our picture taken. This sounds cliche but Eil made us feel so comfortable from the moment we met him. Calm, cool and collected. He's also FUNNY, this helps a lot! After an hour or so of walking around Old Town we had over 100 great pictures, it went by so quickly and was so fun (my fiance agreed, which was a shock to me). We also got the pictures extremely quickly, I was expecting to have to wait much longer.

Flash forward to the wedding and Eli again proved why he constantly wins awards and recognition. When a transportation mix up left my fiance and I stranded at the Church, Eli was again so calm, cool and collected. He called us and Uber Black car and instructed to the driver to follow him for some wedding portraits on the National Mall. My fiance and I were both pretty laid back and just let Eli "do his thing" and honestly I recommend this approach. He's the professional and if you follow his lead you will have the most beautiful wedding pictures.

Lastly, communication leading up to the wedding was great as well. He answered emails quickly and thoroughly and took time to learn the names of family before the wedding so that he knew who to focus on the day of.

There are tons of great photographers in DC and undoubtedly Eli is one of the best. Add to that his great personality and he's someone you WANT following you around with a camera for 10 hours.

Eli is AWESOME - we had the best time with him at our wedding. He is not only a fabulous photographer, but he also made the day so much more fun because of his personality. We LOVED his sense of humor and our entire wedding party felt the same way. Taking pictures for a long time can be painful, but working with Eli was so much fun that we really enjoyed it! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

Eli came highly recommended as the go-to photographer in the D.C. area and he did not disappoint. His photos captured everything we could imagine and we've received countless compliments on his work. Throughout the process, Eli was incredibly responsive and open to hearing our ideas (and giving his own!). On top of it all, Eli was so easy to work with and made everyone around him feel comfortable -- even in the midst of a 200+ person wedding. The pictures are truly pieces of art and something my husband and I will always cherish.

I can't recommend Eli Turner enough! He is an absolute amazing photographer and was a pleasure to work with. He was spot on with everything, didn't miss a beat, but at the same time I didn't even notice he was there ( in a good way ).

Everything from his humor, to his speed, to the fact that he was the one that actually ended up helping me with my dress when my bridesmaids had difficulty; he literally was such a huge part of the day! This was how I felt before I even saw the pictures. His work is incredible I had so much trouble choosing my favorite pictures as I felt they were all stunning and all of my special moments were captured from the day.
