About Elysha

I'm Elysha Thurston, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Vermont, a hopeless romantic, and a lifetime lover of weddings. It is my great joy to be a part of your most special moments.

I was the girl who planned Barbie weddings, watched Father of the Bride and The Wedding Planner endlessly, and clipped photos out of bridal magazines long before Pinterest made it easy. After years working in bridal retail, I became a stay-at-home mom and started soul searching. I wanted a career where I could be based from home but could still be involved in the magic of weddings. So I relearned photography (it had changed a lot since my darkroom days in college) and began my journey into the life I had always dreamed about...

MY FAVORITE THINGS

A bookworm since the days of jelly shoes and Babysitter's Club, a day of leisure to me is only complete between the pages.

a great book

Either a tub full of them or a flute filled to the brim, bubble baths and champagne are the keys to my heart. 

BUBBLES

My kids are the reason I started Ever After, and they'll always be my favorite subjects.

THE  HOOLIGANS

There are two furry members of our household, Cosmo and Willa. Cosmo is a nine year old Lhasa Apso/Poodle/Lab mix and Willa is a one year old puppy we got from a rescue last spring. As far as we can tell, she's a Corgi/Basset Hound mix with possibly a little pit bull thrown in for good measure.

MY FURBABIES

Sea coast or green hills, if I have new territory to explore then I'm a happy girl. On the docket for 2017: a trip to England, Scotland and Ireland!

Often my assistant/second shooter on a wedding day, my husband Matt is the true love of my life. He really is the peanut butter to my jelly, and I am so lucky to go through life with him by my side.

"Working with Elysha was the best decision we made for the wedding! The engagement session allowed my husband, who is very camera shy, to get to know her and she quickly made him feel comfortable. Elysha is able to connect easily with people and put them at ease, which is exactly what my husband needed. It was like she was a part of the family on our wedding day. The photos from our wedding day are nothing short of heavenly." -Santana A.

"She was professional, courteous, and fun! It was a relief knowing that my husband and I could relax and enjoy our day because we knew we could trust Elysha to get the perfect photos, and she did! She arrived at our venue early to get some detail and getting ready shots which we greatly appreciated. Our day went perfectly and thanks to Elysha we are able to relive it through the amazing photos. We can't thank her enough! I would absolutely recommend Ever After Photography to anyone!"
