About East Elm


Aaron & Melissa met on a blind date more than 16 years ago. Never in a million years did they think they would end up falling in love, being each other's better half, have 2 beautiful little boys and would document over 650+weddings that become instant heirlooms for all of their clients. We feel so incredibly grateful that we are able to do what we love.


We are truly blessed!


Aaron & Melissa are professional photographers based in Wisconsin who specialize in documenting gorgeous weddings and breathtaking portraits for amazing clients like you! Their goal is to create fine art portraits and candid images that capture all the emotion that a wedding can bring.


We want you to look back and remember the laughter, the tears and all the amazing moments that you had from your big day by simply looking through your wedding images.

East Elm Photography was amazing to work with. We knew from our initial meeting with Aaron & Melissa that we would love working with them. They are organized, professional, friendly, personable and most of all very talented. Melissa shot both of our engagement photos and wedding day, and we couldn't be happier. Our wedding pictures turned out beautifully. She was able to capture all of the moments of our day as well as our personalities and style in the photos. We are so glad we had a chance to work with them and would recommend their work to anyone.

We are so glad that we made the choice to work with them for our wedding becuase our photos were incredible. Melissa was our photographer and she was wonderful to work with.

East Elm Photography was the absolute best choice we could have made for a wedding photographer. Both Aaron & Melissa were so easy to communicate with and responded to everything very quickly! We had Aaron as our photographer for the wedding and he was nothing shy of phenomenal. He captured all the perfect moments, some that i didn't even know happened! We received countless compliments about him from our guests. We highly recommend East Elm for any event, and we have already suggested them for friends and family! They are truly talented people. Thank you both so much!

Rachelle & Jason

East Elm was a perfect fit for our wedding day! Aaron & Melissa are very responsive and very friendly to work with. We had the option to have one or both of them, we selected just one of them to shoot our wedding day. We can't say enough great things about Aaron and his photography - he is truly talented! We have breathtaking photos!!! Aaron was so unobtrusive and extremely easygoing and effecient at our wedding, and he managed to get so many perfect shots! From posed shots to candids to just the decor - all the photos were so amazing! Looking back at our wedding photos, they just capture our day perfectly, and they just put a huge smile on my face!

My now husband and I felt that one of the most important decisions we needed to make for our wedding was the perfect photographer. Those amazing memories we made that day captured in photos were something we did not want to make any compromises on. Since meeting Aaron & Melissa of East Elm Photography, we knew that we were all on the same page as to the style of photos we love and the importance of our portraits. We both felt so at ease and relaxed with them on our wedding day. They both have such a calming, kind personality that made the day that much more enjoyable. We are beyond excited of how the photos from the day turned out! They are so talented and passionate about what they do and it shows in their beautiful images!
