Hey there!


Thank you for taking the time to get to know me! My name is Ellen, although some family members refer to me as ‘Smiler’ or ‘Hoolie’ because I’m always smiling and was a hooligan baby that would pull all the video tapes off the shelf. I’m the one behind the lens and Ellen Forster Photography.

You’ll soon discover from my photos and posts that I love to travel. Italy being my favourite place. My bucket list is forever growing with more places to visit. I hope to inspire people through my photography to get out there and grab some of the beauty and adventure this world has to offer!

When I’m not lusting over my next dream trip you’ll probably catch me studying Italian. I started it initially to have a few phrases to say for my solo trip around Italy in 2016. Since then it has become quite a passion of mine.

Another HUGE passion of mine is dance. I’ve been dancing since the age of six and the only way to tell if I’m sick is if you put music on and I don’t dance to it! So I warn you now that if you hire me for your wedding there is a high chance I will be singing and dancing beind my camera lens while I catch you’re awesome dance moves at the reception! Especially if Whitney’s “I wanna dance with somebody” plays – who doesn’t get up and dance to that song?! And if you tell me you love Harry Potter then we will get along like a house on fire!


My Approach

My approach and passion towards photography is to capture the natural moments, I feel these are the more beautiful and precious memories that can often be missed. But my job as your photographer is to capture all the things that are important to YOU. So as well as the formals and natural shots I encourage anyone that I photograph to start a Pinterest board and send me the link to get an idea of what they are after before the special day!

If you like my style of photography, would like to talk bookings or even recommend another place for my bucket list then I’d love to hear from you! Please use my contact form to get in touch or email me at ellenaforster@gmail.com.

You can find me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
I look forward to hearing from you!
