I would recommend working with Eli Turner without reservation! Our wedding and engagement photos are incredible and he is an absolute blast to work with. Eli is so calm, fun, funny, and easy going -- something you really need on your wedding day. My husband enjoyed his company so much that the day after the wedding he lamented that we'd never see Eli again (I assured him we'd find a reason to take more photos with him). Eli was also able to handle four little kids in August heat with ease.

He is also extremely creative. I am so incredibly happy we chose to work with him because our wedding and engagement photos are anything but ordinary. Not only did he do a great job of capturing the standard portraits, but I was so pleasantly surprised by his amazing artsy shots. He plays up angles, shadows, the lighting, mirrors, etc. to produce really stunning photos. This especially shows in the "details" pictures. Another thing I really loved about our wedding photos is that he captured nearly every person at our wedding (almost 200 people) in one shot or another. So many of our guests are raving about the photos.

Finally, Eli truly cares about his clients and puts in the extra effort. For example, following our engagement shoot, when my husband had somewhere else to be after, he drove me all the way home through traffic. Great guy! I am so grateful for choosing Eli!

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!!!

A picture is worth a thousand words and Eli's work says more than anything I could write here. So, the quality speaks for itself, but what does a future bride and/or groom need to know about how to pick the perfect photographer? Remember, this person will be with you the whole day. Here goes: He captures your personalities. He makes you laugh through awkward portraits. He memorizes the family portrait shot list in advance (Dad is happy). He feels like part of the wedding party but you don't even notice he's there all at the same time. Your parents, in-laws and friends can't stop talking about how much fun he is and he makes everyone look good. He's insanely responsive before and after the wedding. This is everything you should look for in your wedding photographer and this is Eli in a nutshell.

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.
