Serving you on the most important days, preserving that history, supporting you to be at ease with every click of the shutter - these are the things that make me happiest.
Photography has been my life for 15+ years, remember those awful high school days? I ran around with a camera following garage bands getting back stage tickets to Paramore and Taking Back Sunday because I knew the producer. I soon ditched that life for a career in EMS — yeah, your drunk friends got NOTHING on some of the ish I've seen.
Being a queer person in recovery in the wedding world is an adventure. Yeah, I don't drink. That doesn't mean I won't egg you on, but you don't need to offer me a shot. Being in recovery is the fuel to my art, whether film, digital photography or videography.
Fast forward to today, I am grateful to be heading into year two of this crazy ass business. With that growth, I have chosen to give back to the same group of women who picked up when I was down. As a result a portion of your investment from every session and wedding are donated to non-profits that lift others out of domestic violence.
When I'm not traveling (which was basically all the time pre-COVID), you can catch me farming in rural Vermont, knitting at bonfires, and snuggling up with the rabbit and the dog at night. I like my milk foamed in every cup of coffee and tea, and can eat tacos and ramen for the rest of my life. If I'm not on the mainland I'm out dreaming of a Block Island elopement near Black Rock.

Block Island is our second home, a love that goes deep into Eli’s history. Growing up summering on the island, Eli spent a ton of time as a dock rat at Payne’s Dock and Ballard’s Dock. Getting fowler’s at Mohagany Shoal’s was a favorite Friday night activity, and dinner at Sushi Bob’s every Sunday when Eli lived on Block Island.
Eli knows the ins and outs of the island and all the secret beaches and special spots for your wedding portraits.
The Seas Mtns Co team works to support and care for you collaboratively at all times on your big day. You'll be working with at least one of our photographers or videographers in addition to me, Eli. There are six of us total and we split up coverage between us, this means that we work well together. I ensure that the team functions as seamlessly as possible so we're ready for any contingency.
Our photographers and videographers are a group of independent creatives that have worked with Eli in the past. Collectively, the 6 of us have shot over 600 weddings in a variety of locations and circumstances. From dimly lit hotel rooms, to mountain top elopements, we've encountered a handful of challenges and have still delivered gorgeous wedding photos and video regardless. All staff members understands off camera flash, and are provided free access to training and photography resources that I create. Most importantly, we know how to have a bomb ass time no matter where in the world you say I do.
