How did I become a photographer?
Great question.
My great grandfather was a film photographer and my childhood bedroom was where his darkroom previously was.
His developing chemicals seeped into my veins while I slept and BAM!
I became a photographer!
You could say I'm like spiderman or the hulk. But who am I?
I'm Ellen Jalosky.

Hi! I'm Ellen!

I've been married to Jonathan since 2017 and we have three beautiful girls here on earth, and 3 in heaven that we lost too soon.

Each day is a new adventure as we raise our girls and live our lives for the glory of God.

About Ellen

I started this business in 2010 and have had the privilege of capturing hundreds of couples and families ever since!
While I live in White Oak, PA, I take on sessions all around the Pittsburgh area and occasionally at Deep Creek Lake in MD.

"Ellen is the ONLY photographer I will ever trust to take my family photos! She is kind, patient, and gives great direction. She is quick to respond to messages and always has great advice for choosing outfit combinations."

The Vargos

"Ellen is so intentional & takes her time with each session. She isn’t there to rush through to make the most amount of profit for her time. She genuinely takes interest in her clients and that overflows into the way she manages each and every session! You will never feel rushed or slighted when working with Ellen."

The Barczys

"Ellen is an amazing photographer! She is easy to work with and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera which made our engagement session & wedding so much fun! We highly recommend Ellen!"

The Davis Family

"Ellen was very kind and empathetic when we needed to reschedule our original session date due to a family situation. She was so good with my children and really brought them out of their shell! Her photos are the most beautiful photos we've ever had and we will definitely be using Ellen for future milestones in our life.
