Understanding what's most important to you and creating unique, fine art images that will help you relive those important moments of your wedding day is what great wedding photography is all about. Through quiet observation and occasional direction, I photograph the authentic gestures and moments that show you how truly beautiful your life is on your wedding day.
In my experience, the most important photographs capture the relationships between people on a day in their lives in which those relationships mean everything.
Providing you with a highly personalized experience and the best quality imagery in the industry is why I accept no more than 20 weddings per year. My goal is to capture the beauty and joy of your wedding day in an artistic, photojournalistic and unobtrusive manner. My experience gives me the confidence to know that we will capture all the traditional wedding images and hundreds of unscripted, spontaneous moments as well. I'd love to capture the excitement and romance of your wedding day!

Armen Elliott is an artist who, with a camera's lens, explores the unique individuality of her subjects with compassion and insight. A high-energy optimist with a critical, trained eye, Armen moves past the facade to find the spirit of the individual.
"My photographs are about people and their relationship with others as expressed through gesture." A typical engagement session is relaxed, spontaneous and frequently mischievous. "The process influences the end product," maintains Elliott. Her love of collaborating with others is evident in her work.
This Lehigh Valley wedding photographer covers Easton, Bethlehem, Allentown, Bucks County as well as New Jersey and New York City.
