So let me say that's on our wedding day there were a few things that were most important to have, an my photographer was one of them. It's something you have forever an you want it to be perfect. You want to find the best photographer there is to capture what will be the most important day of your life. So from the moment we met Ella we knew she was the one even before seeing any of her work. Just talking to her an seeing how she felt about what she does was enough to know that we wanted her, then seeing her albums I was at a loss for words her pictures and the way she captures every special moment is priceless. Not to mention she is she the most sweetest an amazing person that we have met she is also so very passionate about her work an it shows in every picture that she takes. She is so enthusiastic and great to work with she makes you laugh and you just have so much fun, all being very professional at the same time. We hired Ella to do both our engagement photos and our wedding photos which were absolutely beautiful. The day of the wedding Ella an Sebastian where there early to capture all the moments before the wedding. An they were great. During the wedding they were everywhere taking pictures an capturing all the memories, but you never knew they were there. They went above an beyond getting the most amazing shots of us, family an friends. I can't thank Ella an Sebastian enough for all the hard work an absolutely the most beautiful pictures ever. I have looked at them a dozen times already. She captured my dream wedding perfectly an gave us memories that will last forever.

When discussing our wedding priorities, my fiance and I agreed that finding the right photographer was our top priority. To us, the right photographer would artistically capture the nuances of the day and Ella is that photographer! Ella first photographed us during an engagement session. She captured amazing moments in a beautiful location (Mt. Charleston). We could not have been more pleased with our photos and we were equally impressed with Ella's tenacity to get every amazing shot. Ella climbed, squatted on the ground, and practically stood on her head to ensure that she captured the best photos possible! We were married on 8/30/2014. Ella and her staff were focused, mindful of the timeline, interacted with our guests to bring out the best shots, and made the day everything we hoped for! We are eagerly anticipating our wedding photos and I am completely confident that our photos will look amazing because of Ella's commitment to excellence! As an added bonus, our wedding day was less than a week away from my due date. Ella took time to photograph some fantastic maternity shots, while still maintaining the focus of the day on the wedding. We plan on having our little addition photographed by Ella very soon and will continue to have her record our family for years to come!

Ella and her assistant, Sebastian, were everything we hoped for and more! The majority of my planning was done overseas which meant endless emails and detailed questions that could drive any person crazy. Ella was very professional and answered every one of them promptly. In fact, it seemed like every email ended with a big, beaming smiley face- which I would later find out captures Ella's personality perfectly. When my fiance (now husband) and I met Ella for the first time (just a little over a week before the wedding!), all our worries melted away. She was extremely friendly, personable and professional. Although we did not know exactly what we wanted for the style of pictures, we knew we were in good hands. We even managed to fit an engagement session in with her a couple days before the wedding because we weren't happy with our first one done by another photographer. It was incredible she pulled this off for us so last minute to give us the engagement pictures we really wanted. On the day of the wedding, Ella was a bride's dream. She showed up early, and was personable and friendly while doing her work. She knew exactly what shots to get during the ceremony and reception and many of them were not your typical shots which made the pictures even more beautiful. When I saw the pictures, I was amazed at how many wonderful moments she got without me ever noticing. Her pictures spoke volumes of her artistic skill behind a camera in capturing images of pure joy, love and happiness. You can tell Ella truly loves what she does. It comes through in her attitude and in her photography. This review cannot fully capture how impressed we were with Ella, her work and her team.

We used Ella Gagiano Studios for our engagement and wedding photos. We got to work with Ella herself for our engagement shoot and had an awesome experience. She is clearly passionate about what she does and her personality put us to ease quickly. She gave great direction and feedback during photos. My husband (who typically hates having his picture taken) had fun and looked like a model in her pictures! Ella also had great ideas for location and knew several "hidden gems" to shoot in downtown Vegas. We were thrilled with the finished product! For our wedding day we worked with Galyna (a senior photographer from Ella's studio) for our wedding day. She was very sweet and flexible/open to our ideas for pictures. So far we have only seen the sneak peek- but the pictures look amazing. She did a great job of capturing some candid moments, which I absolutely love!

Ella is a fun, professional, kind, talented, creative, and experienced photographer! We had so much fun with her on our wedding day. She knows how to direct you through the pictures with ease and she was great company throughout the day. Her attention to detail is impeccable and her talent is unmatched. We were absolutely blown away by our wedding photos! We had formal shots, fun shots, candid shots, and what she did with lighting, silhouettes, and effects were awesome. She gets excited when she's getting amazing shots and you can tell she loves what she does. Photography is one of the most important parts of your big day! Do yourself a favor, spend some money and reserve Ella, get an engagement session done with her, and get photo books! They are beautiful and 100% worth it.

We feel so lucky to have had Ella Gagiano and her amazing team as our photographer and videographer at our engagement photoshoot this past June in Las Vegas. We personally know Ella very well and work closely with her at many different events in town! She is the absolute BEST! Super talented, very easy to work with, always get back to you so quick!! Ella is the type of person that doesn't matter what, she never stops smiling and always have a positive attitude to everyone. :-) We were so delighted when we received our photos to see the range of excellent shots Ella captured across the 2-day photoshoot! She provided a preview of one of his favorite shots, which we quickly shared on social media, and have since been told by many people (including some who don't even know us!) that it may be the best engagement shot they've ever seen! Aside from the amazing photoshoot, Ella's team produced a beautiful promo video clip for us that we are going to show at our wedding before we come in the room for our 1st dance! So excited!! If you are looking for BEST photography/videography company in town, stop looking and book Ella Gagiano Studios! Ella, we LOVE you!! Aside from the sheer quality of his work, I would recommend Paul for his excellent people skills (i.e., he mingles well with guests, not the awkward photographer who lurks in the corners type, which I've totally seen at other weddings).

Ella and her team are absolutely INCREDIBLE! Ella shot our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos and every photo was nothing short of AMAZING! She is one of a kind and knows the exact angles and lighting for the perfect picture. My husband and I were stunned at how gorgeous every single shot was. I will continue to use Ella and her team for all of my shoots because she is simply the BEST you will find in Las Vegas!

Ella is truly amazing. From the initial meeting, to our engagement shoot, to our wedding day, Ella was professional, passionate, and right there by our side to make everything perfect. I normally don't care for being in the spotlight but Ella made our shoots super fun and made me totally comfortable. Even my husband had a blast with his friends for the getting ready pictures the day of the wedding. We chose to upgrade the package for the extra time and camera person and it was soo worth it, as we didn't miss a moment. And ohh.. The end result..Phenominal. Her style and eye for photography is hands down the best in town!!!

My fiance hired Ella to shoot a our surprise engagement, and it was absolutely perfect! Ella was somehow able to sneak & follow us around, taking photos without me noticing her at all! She was quiet as a mouse! I didn't see her at all until after he pointed her out to me! Immediately after the proposal, she took the most BEAUTIFUL engagement photos! She posed us effortlessly. Arthur booked her for our Vegas trip, all the way from Birmingham, AL. I was shocked when she had all the photos & edits ready the next evening, so we were able to announce our engagement to everyone complete with professional photos. It could not have been a better experience. I would recommend her 1,000 times! I am so grateful Arthur chose her to capture that special evening.

If I could give Ella 10 Stars I absolutely would! From the first day that my groom and I met her at her Studio, she felt like an old friend. She arrived for our wedding shoot early and was so excited to spend the day with us! All day long she was attentive and friendly and made sure to listen to my now-husband and I every step of the way. She got our photos back to us in a week, which was completely unexpected, and every single shot is absolutely breathtaking. I'm very overly critical of pictures of myself, and I have not found one photo in our gallery that I do not love. I cannot speak highly enough of Ella and her editing team!
