Caldwell Photo Studio Experience
We're not a one-and-done kind of photography studio,
we travel with you along your life journey.
Our Caldwell photo studio experience is meant to make your portrait session a fun and easy process. Our state-of-the-art portrait studio is built to accommodate same-day viewing and ordering sessions! We want to travel with you along your life journey, not just one photography or video session. We don't mean that you can't book a session if you're only interested in a headshot. Your experience is important to us no matter what we're here to deliver for you. Our mission is to honor the connections of our clients by discovering what's important to you. We provide meaningful photography and films that emulate life through your eyes. For business owners, through your client's eyes. Whether it's a session to celebrate yourself, family, pets, life events, or something business-related, we're here with you through it all. We believe there's more to it than just capturing and preserving memories. We believe in displaying and celebrating memories. We pride ourselves when it comes to the quality of the products we provide, most of which are made in Italy (you've never seen canvas like this before). We've been doing this a long time and what we've found to be most fulfilling is the connections we are able to create with our clients.
You will receive a link to schedule your discovery call/video call for a time that works for you. During this call, we will learn about you and what's important to you. We'll cover our process, pricing, and answer any questions you have.
You have officially booked your session! Your session retainer has been submitted and the contract is signed. We will begin preparing you for your session and answer your questions along the way.
Your session day is here! We have helped to prepare you and now we'll let your personality shine, guide you as needed, and fulfill what we discussed when you scheduled your session. We'll have snacks and beverages on hand for in-studio sessions. We also have makeup artists and hair stylists available to book.
REVEAL & ORDERING SESSION
During this time we will have snacks and beverages for your as you choose the photographs you love and place your order. This can happen after your session by you taking a break to grab a bite to eat while we prepare your photos, or schedule to come back another day.
We deliver your order! All orders are delivered directly to us. We inspect the order before letting your know it's ready. You have an option to have us hang your wall art or you can pick it up from our studio.

No matter what type of photography or videography session you're interested in, the process is fun and easy.
co-owner | Photographer
Adrienne is a photographer with over 13 years of experience. She brings humor and life to a room, loves single malt scotch, DIY projects, and dresses up as Hulk Hogan every single Halloween. Fair warning: don't underestimate her one-armed pushup capacity.
studio manager | assistant
Kelsey is the studio manager at ELS and also a photographer! She's bright and sparkly on the outside, and feisty on the inside... think Jessica Rabbit and Lisa Frank combined! She's obsessed with wildflowers and is turning her front yard into a meadow full of them. Kelsey passed the CPA exam on her first try and does math in her head!
co-owner | filmmaker
Melissa is a filmmaker of over 9 years. She's on the quiet side but takes charge when she needs to. Melissa loves tequila & mezcal and prefers costumes that are scary or over the top. She and her wife, Adrienne, are enjoying life with their 1-year-old son and 2 pets, Webster and Ari!
Caldwell Photo & Video Studio
Adrienne and Melissa have been capturing people’s love stories together for the past 8 years. Working as a team to provide two of the most important services on a wedding day just made perfect sense. We reside in Morris County and our current studio is in Caldwell, NJ. The entire experience from walking into the building, to arriving at our studio, and enjoying a drink in our meeting lounge will be an artistic and luxurious one. Adrienne has been photographing weddings, portraits, families, headshots, newborns, maternity, pets, and commercial events for 11 years. Melissa officially migrated over to the video arena of weddings around 2012. We also provide services for businesses creating social media content, website introduction media, commercials, live talks, and lectures. Together, we help businesses visually fulfill their brand promises and message to their consumers. We help families display the unique relationships they share whether that be with their children, pets, grandparents, or best friends.
