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 designβ€” 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 grateful I feel that I can pursue my passions in this big crazy world of ours. I'd love to be a part of your lifeβ€” to document your beautiful moments or to make your house into the home that you've always envisioned, or maybe something in between. If you think we'd be a good fit, drop me a line! Can't wait to hear from you!
