We just received the pictures from our June (indian) wedding and love all of the images! Eli is so laid back and made taking hundreds of pictures seem like a piece of cake. My whole family was impressed by his professionalism. Eli is prompt to reply and was willing to accommodate all of my requests/concerns. Would recommend him without any hesitation!

Eli has an artistic eye, and we were drawn to him because of his experience in film production. When we went for our initial engagement shoot with him, he completely put us at ease! When we received the links to the engagement photos, they were everything we wanted! Our guests loved that he was able to get amazing shots without being in the way, and he also turned some heads...lol! He was worth every penny and we'd recommend him again and again!

Eli was the photographer for our August 17th wedding at the Four Seasons in Baltimore. He was super professional, talented, and warm. He really helped my (now!) husband and I to feel comfortable in front of the camera which allowed us to get the shots we wanted. He was great! Highly recommend.

Eli came highly recommended from our wedding planner. We met him at a local coffee shop and my now husband and I LOVED his work and knew he was it. He was very professional yet personable. He showed us his albums and samples. SOLD! We hired him that day. You spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day, so 'clicking' was important to us. With Eli, we knew right away.
He was timely, fun, and professional on both our engagement photos (taken in Georgetown) and the day of the wedding. Eli had us laughing and was involved when he needed to be. There were other times I had no idea where he was or noticed him. He could have been hiding under a table for all I knew (wouldn't surprise me). But believe me, he didn't miss any shot or moment! He even laid in the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue on his stomach to catch a shot of us and the capital! (tourists and cars honking). My family, even teenagers, had a blast with him. He thanked us and said his goodbyes towards the end of the evening and sure enough 20 minutes later - he was still on the dance floor capturing fun moments! His assistant's photos were great as well. His service and photos are beyond 5 stars.
Eli's photos are amazing and he will capture every moment of your day and you will cherish his photos forever. His work has gotten a lot of recognition. An editor from The Knot came across his photos from our wedding and featured not only our wedding, but others as well! He was never in your face or annoying. He was fun, professional and has an amazing gift and talent. Hire him!

We hired Eli for our wedding and engagement photos and could not be happier with the actual photos and the service we received. Eli is great if you or your groom are at all photo-shy. My now-husband HATES getting his picture taken which usually makes him look awkward in photos but Eli put him at such ease that our photos turned out looking completely natural and genuine. He's very personable and easy to work with. He was always responsive to questions and emails. On the actual wedding day, he got formal portraits with us, our families, and our bridal party done efficiently without skimping on any shots, and then at the actual wedding he and his assistant were not obtrusive at all. I could barely tell they were there but they got amazing shots! Highly recommended!!

This man is a true visionary, he is an artist. If you don't want boring pictures that you have seen a thousand times go with the next biggest photographer in the DMV! Not only is his work superb, but he is such a pleasure to be around. He is funny and so charming.....the fact that he could get my husband to smile that big in some of the pictures still amazes me to this day! I love Eli and his work and I couldn't be more happy with our pictures and relationship.

What a true, true talent and just cool person to have involved in your wedding celebration! I absolutely fell in love with Eli's work while searching for a photographer for my wedding. Unfortunately he was already booked on my date :( However when an unfortunate situation on my wedding day (not photographer related) required me to have additional photos taken I jumped at the chance to work with Eli. Still loved my wedding day photog. I will say that Do Overs (as I now refer to them) are something more brides should consider when something prohibits them from having everything they want on their day. It's not as expensive as employing a photographer for a full wedding shoot and you get several hours of dedicated time (without the wedding pressures) to take every shot you could ever want. I must say that I was not disappointed with the outcome of my Do Over.

First of all Eli has a fantastic personality that allows you to really have fun taking hundreds of pictures. He provides great direction so you feel very comfortable throughout the entire shoot. Most importantly he has an eye for finding really unique angles and capturing you at your most beautiful. He has been in the business for so long that he's shot at most venues in the DC area so he's familiar with where to take the best photos. After looking back at his photos I have to say that I felt my absolute most beautiful and I will treasure these photos for years and years to come.

My final commentary is on the editing process. This is definitely a question I will now encourage my engaged friends to ask photogs: What do you consider retouched photos? Eli includes a certain number of photos that are truly retouched meaning he's taken care of minor blemishes, stray hairs, etc so you look as perfect as possible while still looking very natural.

I was very, very impressed with Eli and I will return to him for all future photography needs. At the end of your wedding all you'll have left are the memories and your photos & film. You need to make sure you can trust that your photographer will capture the very best of your special day and make it look even more magical. I will say with 100% certainty that you can feel safe putting your trust & most special day in Eli's talented hands! Thank you Eli!!!

He has been in the business for so long that he's shot at most venues in the DC area so he's familiar with where to take the best photos. After looking back at his photos I have to say that I felt my absolute most beautiful and I will treasure these photos for years and years to come.

My final commentary is on the editing process. This is definitely a question I will now encourage my engaged friends to ask photogs: What do you consider retouched photos? Eli includes a certain number of photos that are truly retouched meaning he's taken care of minor blemishes, stray hairs, etc so you look as perfect as possible while still looking very natural.

I was very, very impressed with Eli and I will return to him for all future photography needs. At the end of your wedding all you'll have left are the memories and your photos & film. You need to make sure you can trust that your photographer will capture the very best of your special day and make it look even more magical. I will say with 100% certainty that you can feel safe putting your trust & most special day in Eli's talented hands! Thank you Eli!!! Read less

5 Stars just isn't enough to express how awesome Eli is. He was literally THE BEST VENDOR of all my vendors. He was the one I never had to worry about because he was responsive, professional, charismatic and laid-back.

My husband and I on our way to our honeymoon discussed and agreed that Eli was the rock star of the whole wedding process. He made both of us feel at ease (we are the people who make funny faces at camera because we are uncomfortable.) He calmed both of us down when we were feeling overwhelmed. He's funny and most of all his photos just had so much more artistry than anyone else we looked at.

So yah, go hire Eli. You will not regret it.

Eli did an outstanding job capturing our wedding weekend. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. Eli came recommended to me by a good friend who's wedding he photographed.

When we started planning our wedding, the best advice we got was to chose our photographer wisely. You can spend a fortune on flowers and a lovely venue, but those details won't matter if they aren't recorded properly. Eli not only has a great eye for what looks good, but he also has really good equipment that help make everything he photographs look phenomenal. The other thing that Eli does is that he takes a lot of photographs. Every time I looked out of the corner of my eye during our wedding, I saw Eli running around shooting photograph after photograph, the man was getting a full workout doing this. It was impressive and looked exhausting.

Eli also has a ton of experience doing wedding photographer. Trust me when I say this is a specialized field. A wedding photographer needs to capture a family's big day and guess what we aren't professional models, so we have zero experience being photographed. Eli understands that and does all he can to get amazing shots. The other thing he has working in his favorite is that he's photographed weddings at almost every location in the Washington area, so he knows where he can get the best shots at your church, or where he can get a good photo of you family. He really knows what works.

The other important thing to think about when hiring your photographer is chemistry. You end up spending the majority of your wedding day with your photographer and you want to get along with that person. Eli is a true professional and he knows how to work with everyone. He handled a camera shy groom, nervous bride and grumpy relatives with great ease. By the end of the wedding I wanted to invite Eli to our Thanksgiving dinner, not to photograph it but to hang out with my family, that had grown to love him over the course of the weekend.

When my husband and I started to plan our wedding, we knew we wanted a talented photographer who would not only capture the special moments of of our wedding day, but who would also be a great person for us to work with. We interviewed several photographers and our decision to go with Eli Turner of Eli Turner Studios was the perfect choice.

When we met Eli, he was very interested to know about us and what we wanted for our wedding day. His portfolio was incredible -- the perfect combination of pictures that captured special moments and artistic shots of details that might otherwise get overlooked. He was also just so relaxed and easy going and we really liked that.

Prior to our actual wedding, we did a 2-hour engagement photo session shoot with Eli, which was fun and gave us a better sense of what we could expect with our own pictures. My husband spent several hours with Eli walking around Georgetown as he captured shots of us in our neighborhood. We loved the photos and ended up using them to create our guest book at our wedding.

Our wedding itself had 4 different events and Eli (and, at times, his team) were there for it all. The festivities began with a South Indian wedding ceremony on Friday, April 6, followed by the Sangeet (essentially an Indian version of a dress rehearsal that evening, and the North Indian wedding ceremony and reception the following day on Saturday, April 7. Eli and his team were there yet many times we didn't even notice because he had such a tactful way of being there and capturing moments without making it so obvious. He was also super fun to work with. I distinctly recall sitting outside for about 2 hours of portraits on Saturday afternoon and, while it could have been tedious or boring after a few shots, Eli was fun and playful, which definitely kept us smiling!

We recently saw the online images of our photos and were extremely pleased with the thousands of photos and moments he captured. Eli is now helping us create a wedding album.

We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with him and look forward to working with him in the future!!!

Do yourself a favor and stop looking for another photographer...Eli Turner is it! I felt so lucky to have come across this gem. You simply will not go wrong working with him, his photos are absolutely beautiful. He a unique eye that allows him to capture scenes that I could not have even imagined coming out of my wedding. I would call myself a budget bride, and the photographer was the one area I was willing to splurge on, and I can honestly say Eli was worth every penny. Compared to other weddings he has done, mine was fairly simple. But looking at the pics it looks like my venue was just as extravagant as all the others...this man really knows how to work a camera! I have gotten so many compliments on our wedding pictures. I was most impressed by his professionalism and ability to manage a crowd-- I have a big family and everyone wanted to be in a photo. He made it happen as efficiently as possible and kept a smile on his face the whole time. To say it was a pleasure working with him is an understatement. I felt so lucky to have him as my photographer and would absolutely recommend him to anyone who was looking for one! And definitely plan on doing engagement photos because it provides such a nice opportunity for you and your fiance to work with Eli privately. It made all of us so much more comfortable with each other. What I love most about Eli is even though he is incredible at what he does, he doesn't not take himself too seriously and he is lots of fun to work with. He knows how to make a couple feel totally at ease. I think that is a unique trait. My hibby and I are truly going to cherish our wedding pictures for the rest of our lives...we could not be happier with the results :)

From the beginning, my husband and I were struck by the artistic nature of Eli's work, how his images told a story and captured the emotions of the day, and how everyone looked immersed in the moment, captured in the most beautiful way possible. When we look at our engagement and wedding photos, we can't believe that he did all those things for us, all the while being such a positive, pleasant, funny, and genuine person to work with.

Eli was the best! I was mostly looking for a photographer that was easy to work with, flexible, and skilled at capturing the moment without putting us into too many stiff poses. Eli was all of these and more. I was really overwhelmingly pleased at his creativity and talent as a photographer. My husband and I and our whole wedding party loved working with Eli - he is so much fun. He will make you laugh so that even after a million pictures your smile is still genuine. Our photographs from the wedding are really priceless. For any bride-to-be I would highly recommend choosing the best photographer above all else. And of course - that would be Eli!

Eli worked with my daughter and her future husband prior to the wedding and gave them so many great tips on everything for the day. He was there, but you didn't know he was there taking so many gorgeous photos.
We have had friends whose children have gotten married after our daughter and so many have said her photos were the best ever. Needless to say, we love his work!!!!

When I started planning our wedding, my main focus was our photographer. I knew all the little things like bridesmaid dresses, flower colors, food choices, would all be a faded memory down the road, but my wedding photographs were going to be something I would cherish and display forever. These photos will remind me of all the little things we chose for our ceremony and reception. I witnessed too many friends focusing so much on other aspects of wedding plans and then hating their photographs or the companies they chose to work with. I know some friends that have only a few favorite photos from their wedding, and I feel so happy to know I have hundreds of photos that are my favorite. My mothers friends who have had wedding usually comment that their son or daughters wedding photos were nice “but not as great as Jackie’s.” I am so happy that almost a year later I still have that confidence that we made the best decision with our photographer.

I highly recommend Eli as a wedding photographer. He is extremely professional and will make you feel completely at ease on your wedding day. He takes the greatest shots and makes you feel like a million bucks at the same time. I am not at all comfortable being the center of attention, and Eli was wonderful to work with and I was completely comfortable the entire day. My husband and I had our engagement photos with Eli, and left it up to him to pick the place. We met him in Georgetown and he knew every beautiful spot to take pictures. This was great practice for taking formal shots with my husband, since this was all new to us. He was also kind enough to let us bring our crazy dog to do some "family" shots.

The day of our wedding was stress free I think mostly in part because I had complete confidence that Eli was going to capture the energy and emotion of the entire day. I didn't worry about missing anything and was comfortable and relaxed the whole day knowing he was there to capture everything.

One of my favorite memories post wedding was when my husband and I received our photos during the end of our honeymoon. I was in complete awe and amazement for the entire night, looking through the hundreds of photos. I was blown away to say the least. You see all of Eli's great work on his website but when its you and your friends and family it just means that much more that he captured all these beautiful moments that you can cherish and share with everyone.

Where do I begin?? Eli is amazing! I haven't even seen the pictures in print yet but the sneak peeks I got from his camera is enough to confirm what I already knew. Eli is fun, professional, and blends right in with the family! But most importantly he has a very special eye that turns the simplest scenes into the most amazing shots. He is truly talented and you would miss out by not choosing him as your photographer!!
