Embarking on your wedding journey, whether it's in the vibrant city of Memphis, the charming surroundings of Mississippi, or the exotic landscapes of Jamaica, I am there for it! Now, as you venture into the quest for the perfect wedding photographer, I approach it with a philosophy different from hard-selling. Instead, I let my work and the testimonials of other couples speak volumes. The genuine experiences and sentiments shared by them are the true reflection of what you can anticipate when choosing Elizabeth Hoard Photography to capture the essence of your wedding. I have a plethora of reviews...for real, like over 100... that not only reside here but also extend across various wedding platforms beyond my website.

'Best DECISION'

"Let me start by saying that Elizabeth is one of a kind and truly remarkable. I...instantly fell in love with her photography. And as soon as I got engaged, she was the first vendor I knew I absolutely wanted! Choosing Elizabeth Hoard Photography has been one of my best decisions in wedding planning. Not only is she an amazing and passionate photographer, but she has also constantly gone above and beyond to serve me and my fiancé by helping us with any questions we have concerning other vendors and aspects of wedding planning." - Emily

"I can't imagine having any other photographer but Elizabeth for our wedding. For our engagement photos, she knew exactly the look we were going for and nailed it! She made us feel so comfortable and excited to be shooting our engagement pictures with her. She was such a huge part of our wedding. Not only did she help to calm me down, but her personality was so calming for the entire wedding party. I even asked questions throughout the reception about either the cake cutting or the bouquet toss and she was so helpful! I have never been so happy. She captured not only beautiful images, but she captured the love my husband and I share." - Haley

As one of the top Memphis Wedding Photographers I am here to serve you in anyway that I can.

'PERSONALITY SO Calming'

"Elizabeth could not have made the process easier or more fun but my favorite thing about taking photos with her was that it felt natural. I am the groom that doesn't want to take lots of photos. I hate posing for, I don't consider myself photogenic, and I don't often find myself taking photos of myself or with friends. Needless to say, I was not looking forward to standing around taking engagement / wedding photos. But I really appreciated how Elizabeth just hung out with us and had fun with us. She wasn't in a rush like many wedding related appointments. We cracked jokes, told stories, played some verbal games, and she just happened to capture it with a camera and give subtle feedback to setup great shots. For me, I love looking at the photos and seeing a genuine smile instead of just being told "smile". I highly recommend her and she was one of the best decisions we made with our wedding." - Joseph

A COMPLETE LOOK AT YOUR

Wedding Day

Wedding Detail Shots

 Rings, shoes, dresses. All of your details are an extension of your love story. From the colors you picked to the style you choose to feature - all of it shows off the two of you! I usually spend about 30 minutes capturing your detail shots. As your day goes on I will also get details of your ceremony and reception spaces. A lot of times I get to them before your guests to but even with guests in those spaces I can get some stunning images that reflect your hearts through the design.
 

Getting Ready

 A lot of your time on your wedding day is spent getting ready for your big moment. This is a great time for candid shots between you and your friends as well as any family that might be helping you get ready. My focus here is to capture these moments as they happen naturally while helping keep us on schedule. I usually spend about an hour taking pictures of you getting ready.

First Look or First Touch

These moments are perhaps some of my favorite moments. People decide to see each other before their actual ceremony for any number of reasons - I will help walk you through some of those reasons so you can decide which way you want on your wedding day. The first look doesn't just happen with the spouse. Many opt to do a first look with their fathers or bridesmaids.

Ceremony

I could do pages and pages of my favorite shots from your ceremony. This is actually what all of the other pictures support- the big moment- the 'I do's'. Often times ceremonies can have harder lighting to shoot in or have extra rules on where I can or cannot stand. I work around these limits to give you the best possible pictures of your wedding ceremony. Need help on when to start your ceremony based off the best lighting? I can help with that during your consult!

Wedding Party Formals

 Pictures with your bridesmaids and groomsmen should not only be beautiful but should also show off the personality of your crew. My process helps cultivate that in a quick, fun way. If you did a first look then we would do all of the pictures before your ceremony. If you didn't do a first look then we would do most of these pictures before and the remaining after.

Family Formals

This is one of the most overlooked sections in wedding photography. A lot of wedding photographers dread this part and their images reflect that. To me- this section is the part that your children and grandchildren to come will spend the most time looking at. I am proud of my family formals & the system I use to run through them. I often get told that my formals were the least painful family formals they have ever seen.  Regardless of your family size I am able to complete these images in no more than twenty minutes.

The Reception and Exit

Believe it or not, receptions are also an overlooked area by a lot of different photographers- mainly because many don't know how to properly light during the reception to capture high quality images. I come equipped with all the lighting I need to capture your moments regardless of how dark the reception space may get.

Bonus Section: Your Formals

Throughout the rest of my website are tons of stunning portraits of my couples together. So if you haven't already done so go take a look throughout my other pages.

Each of my couples are talking and interacting with each other throughout their portraits. I think I am pretty funny, ha...but the joy that is captured is because of the two of you. Don't know what to say? Don't worry, I help with all of that by giving you talking points and direction. I do a healthy mix of candid, traditional, and editorial styled shots in this time. I also make sure to fluff your dress and fix your hair while watching for overall flattering posing.

Garden Wedding by Memphis Wedding Photographers Elizabeth Hoard Photography

"If you are still looking for your photographer, then look no further. Lizz was amazing from the very beginning. Her photos are what drew us to her, but her personality, professionalism, and everything else are what made us fall in love with her. EVERYTHING was perfect. She is thoughtful, easy-going, and has the freshest ideas. She made our engagement session and wedding day SO much fun! My husband and I get kind of awkward in front of a camera and Lizz made us feel like professional models. Our wedding was moved indoors 30 minutes before showtime and she kept us calm. She is EFFICIENT on wedding day! Her ability to capture emotions in still frames is spot on. Hire her. This should be the easiest decision you've made in your planning process! She was our favorite vendor, hands down." - Chelsey
