My name is Shelly Pincock. I am the principal photographer and owner of Elle M Photography. I fell in love with photography when I was 16 years old. Long before digital cameras and smartphones I was using film to capture emotion, beauty, and life.
After years of photographing friends and family and their urging to expand my business, I had some personal experiences that helped me to recognize how the gift of photography can be priceless. I started Elle M Photography in 2010 to capture and deliver timeless images.
At Elle M Photography, we hold an incredible passion for life, love, and documenting the emotional moments that add meaning to our lives. With digital photography being so prevalent our goal is to always capture a moment that is timeless and cherished. A moment that can be framed and hung on the wall to be admired for generations.
Photographing people is more than just snapping a picture. It is a complex balance of art and science that takes training and years of experience. As artists we see how light dances on a subject in ways that most people don’t see. We understand how to pose a subject in a natural and flattering way to preserve a moment frozen in time and how to compose a scene that draws viewers in through space, texture, and color.
We know our equipment and the science of photography; how to mix light, focus, motion. And finally, without the right tools even the best artist will be unable to capture the best moment. Our ongoing investment in photographic equipment sets us apart from hobby photographers and many other “professional” photographers and gives us the capabilities to capture moments in the most challenging situations.
