The Photographer

Want to learn from a true pro? Meet Elizabeth Marx! The wedding photographer behind Almond Leaf Studios. Elizabeth’s photos change the way clients relive their wedding day. Ten years from now, they won’t be looking back at their wedding pictures thinking about all the trends that came and went with wedding photography that year. They’ll look back and be able to relive the pure, raw beauty of the day through the timeless heirlooms you hold in your hands (or online.)

As the lead photographer & educator of our Spring 2019 workshop, she wants to tell you more about how that’s possible and why she shoots the way she does!
