I am going to make everything around me beautiful– that will be my life.
— Elsie de Wolfe

01. photography

There are few things more humbling than having the honor of documenting the best day of someone's life. And I can't help it, I just love love! The kisses, the cuddles, and warmth, and the light that emanates from the two people who have made each other their world, their gravity...There's nothing like it. That's why I specialize in weddings, engagements, and family sessions— because of all the things in the world that can be photographed, your love is my favorite. 


02. styling

What exactly is styling? It could be a lot of things— finding the perfect ringbox and ribbon to show off that stunning engagement ring, or bundling flowers that make your heart sing, or giving a photoshoot some depth through meaningful props with a dash of editorial flair. Styling is about taking your photos to the next level, and that's why I include complimentary styling services with every photoshoot I do. 


03. design

I know what you're thinking..."What on earth does interior design have to do with photography?" A lot, as it turns out! Having a designer's eye makes me a better photographer and stylist, and vice versa. Understanding color and texture, the way they play together, the way light enters a room...All of this creates a perfect storm of design and photography. It's all art, after all. I want to take your life and manifest it into the beautiful art that it is. 



meet ellie

Hi there! My name is Ellie, and I'm the founder of Silver & Slate, based in sunny Austin, Texas. I'm a photographer, stylist, and interior designer. (Some people say those things don't go together, but I say they go together like peanut butter and jelly.)

After earning my degree in Photography from the Columbus College of Art and Design, I went out into the real world and promptly made an unexpected career change, landing a job at an interior design studio. I love interior design— the colors, the furniture, the light fixtures...I just adore watching a space transform from dated or dark or dingy to beautiful and bright! But even with a new job that I totally loved, I could never fully shake photography. Then, I realized I didn't have to, and here we are! 

I'm living out a dream right now, and I can't say enough how truly blessed and grateful I feel that I can pursue both of my passions in this big crazy world of ours. I'd love to be a part of your life, to document your beautiful moments or to make your house into the home that you've always envisioned, or maybe something in between. I truly hope to hear from you soon!
