Hey! I’m Ellie Rhodes.

I am a daft, blonde (in both ways) girl, still living off mum & dad in Chesterfield. I’m quite laid-back and I cry at anything (the latest is Great British Bake Off), so I will most likely cry at any wedding.

I specialise in weddings and lifestyle photography. But I love all areas of photography and I am always keen to get involved in whatever you throw at me! My approach is a documentary style, so I love to capture all of the real moments, the ones that you don’t always see. I am based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, but I will travel all of the UK and beyond, if you want me too!

I work in natural light and am therefore always chasing sunrises (in the winter so I don’t have to get up early!) and sunsets. I love to play with light and see how much it can change a photo.

I am happiest when I am on an adventure somewhere with my photographer boyfriend, Adam (right pair of nerds we are!). With the Peak District on our doorstep, there are endless places for us (and my dog) to discover.

I absolutely L O V E dogs, I squeal pretty much every time I see one, much to Adam’s embarrassment. I also love Friends and a proper Yorkshire brew!

In the rest of my spare time, I work as a volunteer photographer at Ashgate Hospicecare. This is a local hospice, that is close to a lot of people’s hearts. They run on donations & fundraising and have to raise £10 million every year to keep going. I offered my services as a photographer for them to advertise more about what the hospice does and why people should get involved. I work with the marketing team to raise awareness of what a happy place to be it is. Whilst hard at times, it is such a rewarding environment to work in.

So, now you know a bit about me, if you like what you’ve read, drop me a message so I can get to know you some more!
