Love Notes

Denise and Keith

I have to first say that if you haven't hired Ella an her team as your photographer what are you waiting for!!!!!! 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 haveforever 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.

Caitlin and Craig

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 anengagement 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!

Leah and Scott

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. THANK YOU ELLA! You truly made our wedding memorable and we will be recommending you for many years to come.



Katrina and Adam

Working with Ella and her team made our wedding fantastic! They were extremely professional and captured our memorable moments perfectly! Their artist style is amazing and our wedding album is gorgeous. They are worth every cent and then some!!!


Bailey and Adam

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!


Alexandra and Chad

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!


Shannon and Tom

We cannot thank Ella Gagiano Studios enough for doing our engagement photos and capturing our wedding day. They pictures were absolutely amazing. She is hands down the best photographer in Las Vegas! Her team was very professional, reliable and extremely fun to work with.

Patricia and Aaron

It was a pleasure working with Ella. She's quick, creative and extremely talented. She has a huge heart. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and will continue to use her for family photos as each year passes. She is the best!!!

Tyneesha and Twayne 

Ella oh Ella! I live in PA. My husband and i chose to get married at the M Resort (perfect venue) in Henderson, NV. Well, Ella was apart of the wedding venue contract and boy oh boy was she the best choice EVER! Walking into her studio you see nothing but stunning pictureseverywhere we were SOLD. I love to hear Ella talk. LOL! She also did a Boudoir photo shoot for me and AHHHHHH! If you want the best for your perfect day, Ella and her team are the BESt! Thank you for being apart of the #MrMrsBushTour 7.7.17 Henderson, NV 

Denise and Justin

Ella was nothing but amazing. We first met with her at the studio thinking we would hire only her company for pictures and video because her prices are a little higher. But once we met her and saw all the passion she has for photography, we fell in love with her. We booked her and her company for photos and video. She took our engagement shoot in January/February of this year and the photos are amazing. We had them make us a book of our engagement photos that had spaces for guests to sign around. It is such a great album. The quality is very nice. She took her time with us and we felt super comfortable with her. We also ordered our save the dates from them and they are amazing! We did a double sided card with pictures from our engagement shoot. We loved the pictures so much we used them our table numbers at the wedding. For our wedding, she was also super amazing. She was patient with me, who was not ready on time. She was also our biggest advocate when other people were trying to interrupt our pictures or when a church staff member tried to cut our photo shoot at the church short. We just got some samples of our pictures and they are to die for! Can't wait to get the rest of them! I would highly recommend her to everybody. She is worth every penny!

Rachael and Gerhald

Ella and her photographers are beyond amazing . Once my husband and I had met with her and looked through an album we were sold. One of the most important things to us was a photographer , knowing that those are the only memories one usually has after an eventful day. Our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos are absolutely stunning and perfect . Ella has an eye for the best lighting and background . Everything was so special, professional and done in a timely manner. Don’t waste your time looking around and price comparing .... Go with the best!

Stephenie and Haran

Overall I have worked with Ella for over 2 years now. My sister in law hired her than my husband and I hired her company as well for our own wedding a year later including DJ as well. Our own wedding we actually worked with Sebastien with a second shooter Galyna andvideographer was Nash and editor Sam. We had a two day wedding which they covered both. Sebastien is the best photographer I have ever seen. Not only does he take incredible pictures he is calm and collective. My family can be a bit much with photos and he never got rude or short. This was Galyna first hindu wedding and she captured some of the best pictures! She was incredible and a pleasant surprise as we didn't have a second shooter in our contract. Ella didn't want anything to be missed. I think that is honorable that she added that without charging us, it means she cares about her work. We have been told by so many people that our videos and pictures are the best they have ever seen. We have people posting our pictures and videos on social media. Sam was our editor for our videos and she is amazing. She is sweet and so easy to work with. She heard all my comments and made sure our video is made to cater to us. I can watch our highlight over and over again. I wish the raw footage wasn't so expensive. But with the scene selections that they give you it has almost everything you would need. My only issues with them is they are a little hard to get back to via email. I found it easier to text Ella, Sebastien or Sam directly. Make sure when you look at your contract and that it includes everything you need because they have a lot of small fees that add up. Our DJ with them was EXCEPTIONAL! Best wedding decision was hiring them to do everything for us. They are great.

Marissa and Billy

Ella and her team are absolutely amazing. She captured our perfect day PERFECTLY! Her talent is out of this world. We could not be happier with our photos from them. Ella is so incredibly kind and just awesome to work with. Thanks so much guys!

Alexandria and Chris

I may be biased, but I would argue that Ella and her team are the best wedding photographers out there! My husband and I worked with Ella for our engagement pictures and for our wedding day. On each occasion, Ella and her team went above and beyond our expectations. Ella is extremely talented and has an eye for seeing things that will make absolutely fantastic pictures. Ella also has a wonderful personality and is able to make you feel completely calm and at ease. Both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures are absolutely phenomenal. We are so glad that we have such gorgeous pictures to remember the most important day of our lives. There is truly no price tag for the pictures that we have from Ella. Ella has been an absolute pleasure to work with, She is incredibly professional, timely, attentive, and accommodating, Ella understands how important a role she is playing and she takes it very seriously. It is also clear though that she truly loves what she does. There is no one that I would have rather had capturing our wedding day! I would absolutely without hesitation recommend Ella and High Class Studios to any couple!

Amanda and Dan

Having been a photographer myself for over 10 years I have friends and colleagues all over the world that shoot weddings, so you might think it would be difficult for this bride to choose the perfect wedding photographer. It was however the easiest decision of all the weddingplanning, I wanted the best wedding photographer I knew, and Ella is the best, it was a simple as that! The photos are nothing short of phenomenal, Ella captured our day beautifully, documenting every moment. These photos are so precious to us, they are beautiful reminders of the best day of our lives and we will treasure them forever. We also had a 2nd shoot with Ella and her team 2 days after our wedding when we knew there would be more time to visit more locations, and we would be more relaxed. The photos that we have from this shoot are just breathtaking, and so meaningful to us as they are at locations close to the home that we have made together. I had many ideas of shots that I wanted and Ella not only fulfilled every wish but she did it with passion, excitement and creativity. When I booked Ella to shoot the photos I was ecstatic, in my mind she was the main event, the fact her video team would be there too was in all honesty an added bonus. I did not realize until after just how precious and important to us the video would be. Jason & Justin exceeded our expectations with a beautiful & creative video of our day that captures and evokes such feeling and emotion. It’s so great to see all the things that we missed on the day, or didn’t have time to notice, and from different perspectives too. The teaser and video have been watched so times already and every time bring the memories flooding back with so much joy and a rollercoaster of emotions. The 3D video of the ceremony is such a great novelty to have to be able to watch our ceremony from all angles. And the drone shots that they captured are just incredible, that final shot at the end of the teaser when the drone pulls back from the cliff to reveal the ocean – epic! Definitely worth getting dive bombed by angry drone hating seagulls for! Any couple planning their wedding that do not book a videographer are crazy and are missing out on having such and important keepsake. The things we have to thank Ella, Jason & Justin for are endless and can’t all be mentioned here….I had to take off my heels to walk down a hill, at the bottom of the hill Ella wiped my dirty feet with her own clothes. They were not at all phased when a wave came in and wet some of their gear, Jason even grabbed our props we have brought along first before their equipment. And Despite being jet lagged they got up and filmed a time lapse of the sunrise to add to our video. Now that is going above & beyond! Thank you so much to all three of you for bringing your incredible talent all the way to the UK, and giving us the most beautiful and perfect memories of our wedding day. Amanda & Dan

Maria and Jhansen

It was an easy decision to go with Ella after having looked at many other photographers in Las Vegas. The quality of her work stands far ahead of other studios I considered. Not only did our wedding photos look awesome, she was a pleasure to deal with, accommodating, friendly,flexible, creative while being receptive to our ideas and what we wanted. Ella is our go-to photographer. She's done our engagement and wedding, and now we're trusting her with my wife's maternity photos and portraits of our newborn .

Hayley and Austin

From start to finish our experience has been amazing. Our relationship started when me and my then Fiance won an engagement shoot At the bridal spectacular show. Our wedding venue had another company as our preferred wedding photographers but after having an engagement shoot with them, I was very unimpressed and sad. After receiving our engagement pictures through Ella's team at high class studios, I knew they had to be our photographers for the wedding and booked them RIGHT away. Wedding pictures are one of the things your DONT mess around with at your wedding. They are the one of things that you and your children will be looking at in years to come from your wedding. After the engagement shoot, I planned a bodiour shoot with ella as a surprise for my groom. I had no idea how to do a sexy photoshoot and was fairly nervous. But Ella literally made me feel and look like a complete rockstar. The pictures came out flawless. She helped me with all the poses and made me feel relaxed. Needless to say I feel we had a bonding moment lol. Ella got me so excited to see what she would do for our wedding. Again she was nothing short of amazing. She was early on the day of the wedding and immediately just started being the invisible person in the room. Although my wedding day was fairly a blur , my guests had afterwards told me how amazing she was. getting in positions on the floor , being behind the bushes at the altar lol to get that perfect shot. One of my weird bridezilla fears was the photographer and videographer not knowing how to work together and in an organized manner in the chaos.. And Ella and the video team worked amazing together! Needless to say I would absolutely recommend Ella and her team to be your photographers for your wedding. If you want something different and more exciting than the traditional wedding pictures than you will love them! you are not just another wedding to them. They care and truly love what they do. You can tell Ella still gets so excited taking your pictures and putting you in fun and new positions even though I'm sure she's done hundreds of weddings! That to me was very special. Thanks Ella so much for everything!!!


Alyssa and Mike

AMAZING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY My husband and I recently got married at the M Resort in Las Vegas and included in our package was 1 hour of photography from Ella Gagiano. We hired her associates to shoot the rest of the day because they were a little more affordable. Imagine my surprise when Ella herself showed up to capture our day! Like most brides, when she arrived, I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to finalize my hair and makeup. She took charge of the situation and started taking the "getting ready" shots. We were running behind for the ceremony and she helped to get us back on track afterward by getting the group and family photos done in a very professional and timely manner. Then, at the reception, I didn't even see or notice her (which is the biggest compliment). I didn't have many "must have" photos that I wanted to get. To be honest, I really did not have any expectations for the photography. A few days after the wedding, while we were on our honeymoon, we received a sneak peek of the photos through a super convenient app featuring about 25 photos. THEY WERE AMAZING!!! We were beyond happy with the initial photos we saw. They were SO GOOD. Even my husband loved them and he hates photos of himself. She really captured our love for each other and the atmosphere and details of our special day. I cannot stop looking at them and I am very excited to see the rest of the photos. I would highly recommend Ella for your special day. She knocked it out of the park.

Gia and Fred

I've worked at many Bridal Shows and have seen dozens of photographers, but what Ella does is unlike anyone else. She sees things in a way that no one else does. Working with Ella and her team was like a dream. They are not only the best at what they do, but they are amazingpeople. By the end of my wedding it felt like they were family. I can't wait for the next mile stone in life so that I can have Ella capture it. I cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done for me. I truly feel blessed to have you in my life.

Keerthana and Jegan

This is a much needed and long over due review. First, I have to thank Ella Gagiano for the most wonderful wedding pictures I could have ever asked for. Simply amazing and elegant! Ladies, we all know that we want our wedding day to be perfect! It’s very stressful picking out the right venue, vendors, dress, shoes, make-up, flowers, cake etc. The one thing that was EXTREMELY important to me was to have the best pictures taken of my wedding because when it’s all said and done that is all you have left once your wedding day is over. I live in Texas, and when I first started looking for a photographer in Las Vegas, I was very nervous because I didn’t have any knowledge about the Vegas area. I searched high and low for a photographer and finally came across Ella Gagiano’s website. I literally sat in front of my computer for hours in awe of her work. If you are anything like me, you see a website that looks great but then you want verification that it is legit. So I started doing a little research and finally came across some reviews that convinced me Ella was the one! Extremely excited, I called Ella and we had a couple of long conversations by phone and then met each other a couple of months later in person. She was absolutely wonderful and reassured me that everything was going to be perfect. Now, you do pay for quality but to me it’s worth it in the end. Ella has a couple of options/packages that you can either use her colleagues to photograph your wedding or you can use her personally. Her colleagues are not as expensive if your concerned about your budget and they do an amazing job. I wanted Ella specifically so it does cost a little more, but it’s worth every penny especially if you are the type of person that likes perfection. I can’t say enough about Ella, everyone that has seen my wedding pictures are in awe of how great they turned out. I am very proud of my pictures and would use Ella again in a heartbeat. My husband also enjoyed her colleague that was assisting her that day as he made things very easy for my husband to loosen up a little more in front of the camera. So Brides, if you are wanting the wedding pictures of your life....Ella Gagiano is the one to use! She is simply amazing. Not only is she beyond talented but she is super sweet and easy to work with and gets the job done. She captured every important moment we had talked about and the pictures will always be a reminder of how special my wedding day was. Thanks again Ella, you’re simply the best!


Stacie and Berry

If you are looking for wedding photographer, I highly recommend Ella and her team. As soon as I met Ella, I knew she was the photographer for our wedding. She is very professional and personable. Ella and her assistant, Sebastian did our engagement pictures (at Lake Las Vegas) and our wedding (TPC Summerlin). We were thrilled with our engagement pictures, and our wedding pictures are superb. She always gets the most beautiful and unique shots. She is simply the best!!

Kajal and Tony

"Ella Gagiano and her staff provided photography and videography services for my wedding in Las Vegas, NV at the Bellagio. The wedding was a complex set-up, being that it was a mix of eastern (Hindu) and western traditions. It was really important to me that I had a true "fusion"experience to honor both sides of the family. Ella met up to the challenge capturing the various moments with expressions of art. She covered ceremonies stretching from henna painting, to bridesmaids and groomsmen’s march, to bride’s grand entrance to the Hindu mandap, to the couple going round the sacred fire, to the vows by a western priest, and finally to the Reception. She and her associates spent the time to capture the breadth and the depth of the traditions. The emotions on the faces beyond the smiles have been fixed with amazing background set-up into the photo media with care and quality. Throughout the process she maintained professionalism dealing with a tired and cranky bride to family members on both sides wishing to have their moments of “living it up in Las Vegas” captured on film. She provided us with sample photos via a cell phone app soon after the wedding so we could share moments with friends and family who were unable to attend, and did follow-up with a video “teaser” that many relatives simply enjoyed for the sheer creativity her staff exhibited. The cost for the whole package of services we purchased is not for the budget conscience, but to be honest, totally worth it -- our parents from both sides couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. I recommend her highly for her professional work.

Valerie and Kevin

First let's start with the moment we met.....professional and personable. My fiancé (now husband), mom (who was also there), and I immediately wanted her. Ella and all of her employees matched there pictures...perfect. Throughout the year from the moment we met until the day of the wedding Ella never lost contact. She answered any and all questions (no matter how stupid) through email and even in person. That's service! Now the day of the wedding....perfect! She showed up early and captured every moment. Ella was not in your face during the wedding ceremony and erection, she was more like a ninja. Got in took the photo beautifully and left. All of my guest commented how wonderful she was. During the more personal photos Ella made me feel very comfortable and I never take any pictures, not even selfies. Any stress that could have risen from a photographer there was none. She just added to an already perfect day.

Denise and Kwowan

We hired Ella and Jason for our wedding and let me say that it was the best decision we made. We met with several other photographers, and no one stood out like they did. What really caught our eye was their amazing personalities that allowed us to open up and feel comfortable which we knew would reflect in our photos. On the other hand, they are both very talented and professional, and their work speaks for itself. They both are one of the most easy going, fun, and enthusiastic people we’ve met. They kept the enthusiasm going all throughout the wedding day. I am going to make this short and sweet because words will never be enough to express how happy and lucky we were to have both Ella and Jason for our photography and videography. Please do yourself a favor and hire them, you will not be disappointed! THANK YOU ELLA AND JASON!!! YOU GUYS ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST OF THE BEST!!!
