What our friends are saying about EXT.

Elle x Troy were amazing. They were not just there as our photographers, but there to help with anything else they could. They were so fun to work with and down to earth people. I loved working with them through the whole process of engagement pictures, to wedding planning, all the way up to the very end of the wedding night. We got to know each other well, and became friends. I would hire them every time if  I had the chance to go back and do it over.

What other vendors are saying about EXT.


Elle is absolutely incredible to work with! When we first sat down to discuss a photoshoot, we immediately connected. She knows so many locations that are hidden gems, and she’s not afraid of going off the beaten trail. Her style of shooting is absolutely beautiful and it sets her apart. The way she uses the sunlight to create mood for her images shows her true talent!

Elle x Troy were both SO wonderful to work with! They kept the energy up the entire time I did a styled shoot for them with a few other girls. They made sure I was comfortable the entire time and the pictures turned out SO stunning! I would definitely recommend them for creative projects, weddings and engagement pictures!

After seeing all of Elle & Troy’s captivating work on instagram, I finally had the pleasure of working side by side with them. They are great! Incredibly talented and efficient photographers with a major skill of capturing your ideas just as you imagined them, and then some! Their work speaks for it’s self, beautiful, moody, and clean.
