" If we could use one word to describe working with Elizabeth Lanier it would be effortless - I was never stressed out about timing, how pictures were going to turn out, if we were going to look awkward, etc. They have a gift for capturing images that you can feel, almost like you are reliving that exact moment. Not only do they produce stunning work, but they are some of the kindest and most genuine people and we feel so lucky to have gotten to know and work with them!

 Elizabeth Lanier exceeded our expectations and then some."

Nearly all of the celebrations Elizabeth Lanier photographs are multi-day destination events and no matter where in the world they take place, the logistics are well thought out in advance. We value the opportunity to photograph new locations with a completely fresh perspective and plenty of creativity. In addition to the setting, we revel in getting to know our couples with a pre-wedding session in the days before the wedding. This provide the opportunity for couples to be comfortable and ease in photos which makes for the ultimate wedding weekend gallery.
