Our photographer was simply amazing. Her ideas and shots were just beautiful. She made sure we were comfortable and wondered if we had any ideas. She was extremely kind and punctual. She included the guests in some as well as the chaplain. I would recommend her to anyone. She was amazing.

Lisa is FABULOUS!!! She did our engagement photos before the wedding, and they turned out so wonderfully that we used them in our centerpieces for our rehearsal dinner! She is so easy to work with and so sweet. I was a bit stressed out the day of the wedding, and she did a terrific job in spite of her somewhat difficult subjects. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone and everyone planning a wedding. We are so thrilled that we chose her to capture the memories of our special day :)

I am absolutely in love with my wedding photographs. They were filled with so much color and Lisa captured all the best moments from sentimental ceremony photos to goofy ring bearer photos on the dance floor. I will be sure to use Lisa for any future photography needs as well as tell everyone I know about her!

We hired Lisa for our 7-19-13 wedding after finding her online by doing a search of images for our venue. She had taken so many wonderful pictures of Scripps Seaside Forum already and we really liked the idea that she had experience there. We did both our engagement and wedding photos with Lisa. The whole experience was great. Lisa has the best personality. She has us laughing and smiling the whole time and really had a great time with my wedding party. It’s so important to click with your photographer and it was so easy for everyone to click with Lisa. She is so fun and energetic. She isn’t huge into poses but more into candid photos which made us a little nervous at first but even after just seeing our engagement pictures we know it was definitely the way to go. She is able to capture the true feelings of the moment and not one picture looks awkward or posed. Some of my favorite ones are the ones that I had no idea she was taking. She also brought along a second photographer who was amazing as well. I really cannot stop looking at the pictures. They are amazing and they truly capture every part of the day which is so important because after the wedding all you have are memories, photos, and videos. All of the colors in each photo really pop. We have had so many people tell us how amazing our pictures are and that they belong in a magazine. I couldn’t agree more. Lisa also gives you a digital copy of the photos so you can do what you please with them. I don’t know why anyone would ever hire a photographer that didn’t do this. We can print the photos we want and keep the rest to view online whenever we want it. We are also planning on putting a few on canvas. You can tell she is doing what she was meant to do and she loves it. She will definitely be doing our maternity and family pictures in the future!

Our experience was great!! If I could give her a higher rating I would! Not only was she quick to respond to any and all my questions, she made it a point to incorporate all our requests into our photos. We are a couple that does not like to have our pictures taken, but felt completely comfortable and actually had a fun time ! The pictures are breathtaking! She captured ALL the details!! We have 2 dogs and she got great pictures of them as well!! (even though one of them hid most of the time). We weren't even back from our honeymoon and she posted some pics for us to see! When we first met Lisa we were almost certain she would be the one to photograph our special day. When we found out that she did volunteer work for Military Mondays (http://www.freemilitaryelopement.com), there was no question -- We were sold! To sum it up, not only was the work superior, Lisa was a wonderful person to get to know, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her!! I would highly recommend elle g photography to ANYONE who has photography needs !

Lisa did an amazing job for my wedding! She somehow got my husband to smile in the pictures AND relax! She exudes such a positive energy that it’s impossible not to get amazing pictures! She is extremely professional and listens to what you want to see in your pictures. She took our engagement photos and wedding photos and both were beyond my expectations. I would recommend her to any bride!

Although we met Lisa after we were married I was more then happy to provide a little insight for anyone looking for a wonderful photographer. After searching San Diego for someone to take photos of my husband, dog, and myself I came across Lisa’s website. I fell in love with her pictures and contacted her right away. I realized her prices were very reasonable for such a high quality of work and booked with her right away! We both have hectic work schedules and she did a wonderful job working out a time that worked for all of us.

When I asked photographers about having Guinness (our dog) in photos many-responded back that animals are like props. That alone turned me off to them because I know Guinness has his own mind and agenda so I had to find someone who would work with him. To my delight Lisa spent years as an animal trainer and bonded with him immediately. She was very patient with him and really enjoyed working with him. That made my husband and myself feel very at ease.

Overall for the second we met Lisa it felt like we knew her forever. She has such a wonderful personality. She has great ideas for where to shoot pictures and how to shoot them. We never felt uncomfortable around her, which really made out pictures look nature.

My husband had to leave with the Navy shortly after taking the pictures. When she e-mailed the link with the photos and I went through them it literally brought tears to my eyes. She really captured us the way we are. Not stiff and uncomfortable but natural and goofy. She did an excellent job picking out the photos that came out the best and touching up what needed to be. I order some and am waiting to go get them framed to hang on our wall!

I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. When my husband is commissioned in March we want to use her again for photographs.

My husband and I LOVEd Lisa as well as all our guests. She has a great style and captures exactly what you ask of her. She knows exactly how to "pose" you to get the best shot and make you look your best. She was very friendly, professional and knew how to get those "real smiles" that made for frameable photos. I HIGHLY reccommend her to any bride looking for a photographer with a semi casual, non traditional pose style. We hope to use her for family photos down the line!

You won't find a better photographer than Lisa. So far, we have only seen the "sneak peak" photos from our daughter's wedding and we can already tell it will be very difficult not to buy every picture she took. She managed to capture the fun, emotion, and beauty of the day in every picture. Even beyond the pictures of specific people we had asked her to photograph, Lisa and Xavier (her 2nd photographer) seemed to get great pictures of all of the guests and attendants at different moments throughout day. Completely candid shots that are perfect memory makers. The posed pictures are amazing and the backgrounds she chose are so diverse. So many pictures of the bride and groom that were taken privately with them, make you feel like you had actually been there watching them (without a photographer present) and stir up the very emotion you would have felt in that moment. When we first looked at her website, we were taken with the fantastic color of her photos. In every photo, the colors just POPPED! We checked out several other photographers but we never had the sense of color or found the look of fun in the faces of the couple or guests that we found in Lisa's pictures. Others looked stiff or staged but Lisa's photos made everything look so natural, so candid. Her packages are very affordable and you definitely get your money's worth and more. The start of the wedding day was LATE by 30 minutes which threw everything on our photo timeline behind but Lisa just flowed with it. She never seemed irritated or flustered. She and Xavier went about getting pictures of other things while we scurried to get everything back on schedule. She was a calm in the storm for me as she called me aside, told me to breathe, and said "look at these people, they're having a great time catching up with people they haven't seen in a while. They're fine so you can relax. This is normal...most weddings run a little late...it's going to be great." She was always quick to respond to our emails or phone calls. And, she was even helpful when I was struggling to find the right mother-of-the-bride dress. She gave me pointers on what looks best in photos, color suggestions, and gave her opinion on two dresses I was considering. All in all, we are so glad we chose Elle.G.Photography as our wedding photographer. They were great to work with, fun to get to know, and managed to mix seamlessly in with the crowd to capture so many moments that we never would have seen had they not been there and done their job so well. We can't wait to see all of the finished pictures. We absolutely recommend Elle.G.Photography. If you want the best photographer in San Diego to photograph your wedding, you need to call Lisa. From beginning to end, you will feel like you're working with a family friend (who just happens to be an amazing photographer).
