My name is Chris Ellis. I am a Los Angeles based photographer, born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley.
Since starting out in photography, I have been lucky to find that my passion has become my full time job. Everyday I get the chance to shoot my clients, meet amazing new friends, and share my passion with those around me. I started my photography company with the intention of blending it with my other great passion in life – cars. And I thought that one day I would be some hot shot photographer working for BMW or Mercedes, shooting their latest and greatest vehicles. I imagined myself in exotic locations with art directors and stylists.
But after shooting my first wedding, my world quickly changed.
I learned those everyday moments; moments between people, are what I really loved most. Weddings, portraits, families, lifestyle.
I wanted to go out and make my clients feel beautiful. I decided that the fancy cars could wait. The world needed some more beautiful in it.
I am a Canon fanboy at heart and a total geek when it comes to gear. I love my camera and I love my lenses even more. I love my clients, and I love my job.
Since starting out I have shot everything from charity events with the cast of Sons of Anarchy, to intimate backyard weddings where I was the only invited guest. My clients range from Miss California contestants to my elementary school friends. Pasadena is my hometown, and my favorite place to shoot. I treat all my clients like they are my friends, because really that’s what they are.
So drop me a line! Send me an email, give me a call, whatever you’d like! I would be happy to answer any and all questions you might have for me. ~~
