About EXT

"Our souls dance and intertwine and what we find between us is love
Lights flicker and stars shine, and what we find between us and
The very galaxy is love"

the shorter louder one


I’m Elle.

      Raised by my Dad I’m a pretty rough gal, I belong in the wild among the trees and animals. I was basically raised by a pack of wild dogs. I grew up hiking, camping, throwing knives, shooting bows & guns, meditating, and practicing Kung Fu.

I'm the shorter louder half of EXT. Most days I can be found working in my home office, or doing a nature project with my little homeschooler. Black cat on my lap and incense in the air.

      I am mostly known for my obsession with crystals, my rebel soul, and a need to pet every kitty I see (I can't even apologize, I love them all). 

I was given a 1970s Kodak Hawk-eye when I was 4 and it never left my hand until I received my first digital camera as a teenager. Growing up watching my Dad photograph nature I became enthralled. Hiking throughout the States I captured the nature that surrounded me. I am enticed by natural light, tall pines, steep cliffs, and “The waters edge, where my feet turn to fins.”

Capturing love when you can truly connect, in the wild where your love has no boundaries. Being a fly on the wall and focusing my attention on the real moments. I focus on creating a moment, to be still and present in. To take a deep breath, hug each other tighter, kiss friskier, and love a little deeper. I serve couples who are looking for a raw, artistic, & edgy, laid back style and want the focus of their day to be on their love, and sharing their most intimate day surrounded by the people they love most.

I wear flannels. A lot of black. Drink Whiskey. And stay up way too late staring at the stars sitting around the bonfire trying to contemplate why we exist and when are they ever going to beam me back up to the mother ship. 

As Midwestern Photographers our work has been featured in publications and accounts such as Offbeat Bride, Wisconsin Bride, The Modified Dolls, Discover Wisconsin, Nothing is Ordinary, & Historic St. Charles.  

If you're dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me.

I've always lived in haunted houses, and am interested in the supernatural an unnatural amount. Ghosts just seem to love me.

I'm not even 5' tall. I'm a few inches taller than my Mom and a whole foot shorter than my younger sister.

I’m obsessed with going on long drives. Mostly hoping Sasquatch or a Werewolf will cross the road in front of me. I could spend an entire day just cruising and staring out the window, making turns down random roads.


Elle x Troy + Cole

We fell in love over odd coincidences, always being in the same places at the same time throughout our lives. Our journey began hiking throughout the Midwest snapping an annoying amount of images to add to our never to be made albums. We started a family. Moved to Wisconsin. And now we are hopping our way through the North Woods one cabin and brewery at a time.

Our story is nothing of significance yet it's beautiful and meaningful to us.

We specialize in creating a visual story to forever remind you of your love, right here in the now. Perfect for the couple planning a Wedding that's a bit non-traditional and often in the woods or on the edge of the water.



the other awkward one

             I am mostly known for.
