Ellie Fuqua

Luxury Photographer, Fairytale Storyteller

Hi, I’m Ellie, a dreamer, and lover of romantic moments and unrelenting connections.


In my 15 years of photographing weddings, my interest in photography has grown from simply making pretty pictures -to creating the most wonderful and powerful moments for kind and loving people, all the while capturing those permanent memories.


Creating awe-inspiring imagery to match those unforgettable moments is my dream come true and I hope that by creating your wedding imagery together, we can make your wedding dreams come true too.

Read Cecilie's five star review of Sun and Sparrow on the blog

"When Ellie showed up on my wedding day with her associate she had such an amazing calmness and peace that she brought to the room. Both her and her second photographer led the way and made my getting ready process with my bridal party so fun and special. They both were able to capture the special moments with me and my bridal party that you can see in the photographs so clearly. Looking for a photographer is not just about “what will the photos look like in the end”, I was looking for someone who would be able to guide me and my husband and help us pose formally, candidly, and romantically."
