When I first saw Armen’s bio, I was intrigued and instantaneously enthralled by her work. She seemed to capture the day one moment at a time, truly making it feel like “movie stills”. The first thing that caught our attention was her genuine interest in getting to know us and telling us about herself in a face to face conversation (in our case via Skype). She has this positive energy about her that just draws people towards her and makes you very comfortable in front of the camera. As part of our package we had an engagement session with her, which was the first time we met in person. After spending a couple of hours and watching her work, we knew that we made the right choice. She’s extremely talented, attentive, and very considerate of people she’s working with. On the day of our wedding she was magnificent. She took charge, but still managed to be out of the way of the mad house that was my apartment, took notice of small details, and captured everything that was happening that day, making sure everyone got the spotlight. She was open to ideas and not stuck in stereotypes of wedding photography. She’s truly a photojournalist who makes you feel and look amazing. The photos from our engagement session and the wedding came out so wonderfully perfect. Her talent, skills and of course, experience speaks for itself. One look at the photos and you know it was done by a pro who takes pride in her work and cares about the people she’s photographing. Her response time to our inquiries was remarkable. Within days we had our photos posted online for friends and families to view.
Both of our families fell in love with her, and how can you not. She’s captured our attention and later our hearts. Thank you Armen for your wonderful work and extraordinary pictures. - -Lada Arakelova- -
Working with Armen is a pure delight. She listens carefully and seeks to understand and celebrate the interests of her clients - not just the superficial aspects, but the deeper driving interests. These she uses to inform her artistry and her choice of settings and the composition of her photos. It is clear that she is passionate about creating the images her clients want, and doing it with professionalism. Making appointments - either to meet in person or to talk on the phone is easy with Armen. She is very prompt in her responses. Her contract is clear, and she is prepared in her conversation to answer even those essential questions you may have not thought of to ask. Thorough and professional are attributes Armen has in spades, which makes working with her a dream, but more significant than these qualities, is her artistry. She is a true artist. She captured the moments and tone of our wedding in the most beautiful and artistically interesting shots - responding to her clients' sensibility. The guests at our wedding commented many times on her unobtrusive presence. She seemed to disappear, yet she was very present even at unexpected moments - like when my master's thesis adviser- in the middle of our conversation- started to dance with me (the Bride) in the midst of the seating area. Armen was there to capture it! I am absolutely certain, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you will be pleased by both the experience and the product of working with Armen. She is a pure delight as a human being and she is an impressive artist. ---Edith Bross---
Armen was an outstanding photographer at our wedding. She really captured the excitement of the day and took a lot of creative shots incorporating both the architectural and natural features of our wedding ceremony and reception sites. She is extremely personable and professional and listened to our input. Armen arrived in the early morning and stayed all the way till the end and really blended into the event well. Her photos were online within 48 hours of the event for initial viewing by our guests. The quality of the pictures was excellent. Top notch all around!
She was an excellent photographer. The photos turned out great! we had just enough of the posed group photos to satisfy the family, and the rest were amazing candid shots that really captured the feel of the day. Armen spent the entire day with us from 9am until after 10, just to make sure she got it all. she was a pleasure to work with and was not intrusive at all, but still managed to be in the right places to get all the great shots. She had the photos up within a few days so we could share them with our friends and family. Everyone who has viewed our photos thought they were absolutely amazing. I highly recommend Armen Elliott Photography! ---- Mandy Tolino ----
Armen is the best! She is not only an amazing photographer, but she helped us with EVERYTHING the day of the wedding. She had safety pins for the junior bridesmaid's dress, she helped my bridesmaid tie a knot for her dress. She found a last minute spot to save time and get some of the girl's pictures out of the way prior to the ceremony. She really helped me stay calm and worry-free on the day of the wedding.
Prior to the wedding, she scouted out some great places to take photos in between our ceremony and reception and the pictures are perfect. When I first met her, she made a special trip to meet with my mom and I at the wedding site, which was a good 45 minutes drive away. She also went out of her way to attend the rehearsal the night before the wedding, so we have some amazing pictures and memories of the rehearsal as well.
When we returned from our honeymoon after 3 weeks, Armen already had a slideshow of pictures prepared. A CD of over 400 shots was waiting for us when we got back to our apartment. We could not wait to look at the pictures. The photos are so beautiful and everyone is raving about them - guests and friends and family!
She really gets to know her customers and is very friendly and attentive. Everyone in the wedding party commented on how easy she was to work with and how great of a find she was! I would recommend her 100% to any bride!! --Rebecca Moir--
