Our Story

Founded in 2016, Wild Romantic Photography is a collective of editorial image-makers. We are dedicated to telling stories with photography that captures authentic moments of love and connection.

Based in Australia, we can find the beauty in locations across the world, as well as those closer to home. We’ve shot on windswept beaches and city rooftops, in secret gardens and historic homesteads.

We partner with our clients to help them navigate their big day, and we know it’s just as important to have fun and be in the moment as it is to document the event.

Our photographs are taken with care and skill, and made to be treasured for a lifetime.

Our Founder


Elle Kelly grew up in the migrant farming communities of rural Victoria. Her childhood taught her to love nature and big skies, and the values of Mediterranean culture: family, food, history, generosity and coming together to celebrate life.

She brings these inspirations together with a passion for art, photography and film to her work at Wild Romantic. Holding a BA in Commercial Photography, Elle has photographed more than 100 weddings for 100 happy couples.

Celebrating marriages in her family and community has always been an important way of connecting to culture. Elle admits to being obsessed with weddings, and is always searching for meaningful ways to document ‘I do’.
