During the photo shoot she was very encouraging and helped me find my good angles. She is a pro with finding the right lighting and gently directing my poses to give to most flattering shots.

"I worked with Elise to get some headshots and other pictures of me for my website and LinkedIn.

She was also great at prompting me to pose in ways that would look best for the finished product. The pictures turned out beautifully and really reflect who I am, rather than being boilerplate headshots."  Brennan C. Mallonee, LMHC, Therapist, February 14, 2018

I'm so pleased with the finished product and would happily work with her again!"  Marina Noreck, Local Marketing and Community Engagement Lead at Capital One,  January 26, 2018

"As part of my transition I knew I needed to rebrand myself and put my best foot forward visually. It was a no-brainer to choose Elise after reviewing several proposals and photographer portfolios. Her work displays creativity and brings out someone's personality. It was important to me to have more than just, what I call, a "mugshot." Elise never rushed me and really took the time to try multiple lighting techniques and positions to get a variety from which to choose. For the first time I struggled to narrow down the number of shots to keep. It was worth going out of my way to Southbridge to work with her (she is willing to travel). I highly recommend Elise Capillo to anyone looking to have new photos taken."  Christine Roukey, Marketing & Communications Director, December 27, 2018

I" needed some headshots done and after interviewing a few professionals, I felt Elise was the right person for the job. She didn't disappoint at all, rather she exceeded what I was expecting of her. She is very friendly and makes you feel at ease, especially when you don't have any photoshoot experience. She brings in her experience and shows exactly the way to get great photos. She delivered the products in a very timely fashion and updated me on the status of the order in order to keep the communication level. I am very happy with the quality of the photos and would highly recommend Elise for your photos."  Dipankar Dasgupta,  Expert MDM/ETL & Data Warehouse Professional | Data Modeling | Business Process Analysis | Data Quality Solutions Leader  November 21, 2017


"I just got my finished photos from Elise Capillo. Amazingly the turn-around time was 8 days! Elise's communications have been great: prompt, thorough, and easily understood. During the shoot Elise really put me at ease and gave me excellent directions. As a budding model and actor, I have already received some rave reviews on my photos!"  Martin Pierce, Career Coach | Job-Search Strategist | LinkedIn Profile Writer & Strategist | Actor, Model & Voice Over Artist - November 10, 2017

I️ had a great interaction with Elise! She was one of several photographers who responded to my LinkedIn project for a headshot photo. After reviewing her work, I️ reached out and Elise replied within a few hours to setup an appointment. After some quick research, she offered a great location that was right down the street from me. Once in session, it was like catching up with an old friend. If you’re new to getting your picture taken like I️ was, being comfortable and laughing often while being is an important element! Once I️ saw the photos, it was hard to believe it was me, and Elise really listened regarding the appearance I️ was looking for and provided several options until things were just right. Definitely recommend Elise to anyone who’s in the market for a really great experience!  Luke Connery, Director of Business Development, November 9, 2017

The Book of Don

"Elise did an outstanding job on the photography for our project at the United Way of Southbridge, Sturbridge & Charlton. The scope of work was extensive, involving shooting at 9 different locations over the course of two days. The images are being used for our new website launch. Elise shot the website front page photo as well as about 98% of the images in our company video that will also be featured on the website. She did an outstanding job, was very professional, excellent quality images and great turn around time. We highly recommend Elise!" - Mary O'Coin, Executive Director of The United Way, Southbridge, Sturbridge, Charlton Aug 22, 2017


"Elise is fantastic! I've never liked any photos taken of me, and hated the "posing" process. Elise was a true professional and put me at ease in front of the camera. Her skills with the camera, and her ability to capture the right angle at the right time was amazing. She made me look great on camera, which is no easy task. I highly recommend her. Thank you Elise for making me look good!!!" Laura H. May 24, 2107


Look no Further!

"I was in search of a photographer to update my professional head shot(s),  Through a mutual friend I was introduced to Elise.  She was fantastic to work with - she's very passionate about her craft and it showed during the Executive shoot. She was professional and easy to work with.  She selected some great spots (both inside and outside) and I couldn't be more impressed with the way my photos turned out.  Thank you Elise!"  Kevin O. March 8, 2017

A Fun Experience With A Wonderful Result!

"My photo shoot experience with Elise was outstanding! I got in touch with her because I needed a professional head shot, and I ended up feeling like a model! She gave me instructions during the shoot so I could look my best, and was very flexible regarding the place. Our original pick didn't work out, but she quickly adapted to a new site nearby, and it was great. The photos are beautiful, everyone who has seem them loved them. I highly recommend Elise not only for her unquestionable professionalism and talent, but also for the way she made me feel during and after the photos were done." Ana B. Dec 12, 2016  

Amazing Photographer!

"Elise is the best! We had our family holiday photos taken and she was amazing! Her easy going and upbeat personality made the whole process so much fun for our family of three-she made our 9 year old daughter feel like a super model! Elise's artistic eye resulted in some gorgeous photos which really took advantage of the rustic setting we were in.  Cannot recommend her enough!!" Krystin D.  Dec 10, 2016


"Elise creates photo magic. She did a photo shoot of my dog and me and was absolutely amazing. My six year old dog has always moved away from a camera. I had told Elise this even before the shoot. But she somehow brought out the very best in the dog and got her to "ham it up" in front of the camera. It was like she wanted to perform for this lady who instantly connected with the dog and kept her attention during the entire shoot. The photos she got were amazing and I have proudly shared them with many friends. I can offer only the highest praise for her talent, professionalism and amazing ability to catch "great moments" on film. Elise is a true professional.  Thank you, Elise."  Russ Dowd, Dec 15, 2016

"Any photographer can just take a picture; Elise on the other hand makes her pictures come alive. She has an eye for making breathtaking images. She made me feel comfortable and gives excellent directions for the perfect shot. As they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Elise made me look and feel live a million bucks!" L. Anders Oct 1, 2016 


Look no further!! 

"Elise took a photo shoot of the two little girls I nanny for, and I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY!! It was extremely windy at the park that day, and I didn't think the pictures were going to come out, but they came out so well, that I started to cry! I wish I could give 10 stars!!! Elise absolutely goes above and beyond to make sure that her clients are satisfied. I will be recommending her for future photo shoots. THANK YOU, ELISE!! You have made my week!" Sarah J. Sept 29, 2016


Great photographer!! 

"I had Elise take some professional work related pictures for me. She did a great job of capturing the look I needed at a great price. I would strongly recomend her." Arni C. Sept 21, 2106


Highly Recommend! 

"Elise did my first photo shoot I ever did for my Blog,, I felt so comfortable with her shooting me, she taught me the basics of modeling and couldn't have been happier with the photos! I also hired her to do my son's senior portraits this year, those pictures came out so fabulous I actually cried viewing them! Well, Elise and I cried, bunch of softies!" Kristi M. Sept 7, 2016


This Photographer Knows What She's Doing!

"Elise has an incredible eye and a passion for shooting that are self-evident. My own experiences with her have been on two levels and I will definitely be going back for more. First, I was an utterly inexperienced "model" who needed some casual but professional shots for my web site. She chose really good locations and made great recommendations about what to wear, as well. More than that, she made me feel incredibly at-ease during the shoot, which isn't easy because I really don't like having my picture taken. In short order, we got exactly the shots I needed and more. Second, I discovered that Elise has an incredible collection of photos of Nature which were exactly what I wanted to use in a section of my web site. I wanted images that created feelings of peace and tranquility and had a difficult time narrowing them down to more than a dozen I used on the first round. With her permission, I've also used many of her images for advertising on social media, which always garner very positive responses. I'm ready for a round two on all fronts and Elise will be getting a call very soon." Steven M. Sept 5, 2106


"Elise is a wonderful photographer and puts her heart in her work, and this shows in the finish product. I hope she is able to show the photos she took of me, they are simply great. Leon Lashley July 26, 2016

“If you want to step up your marketing efforts, Elise Capillo does a great job.  Elise and her network of people can take on any project and bring it to life with sparkle…She is talented, creative and fair.”

Devon Glenn, President/CEO at Rockin Boxes Global, Inc. February 14, 2014



“Elise Capillo is an outstanding photographer that does great work.  I have had the distinct pleasure of using her services several times and have always come away impressed.”

Bene Benwikere, Sr. Marketing & Advertising Professional January 14, 2014

“I met Elise 6 months ago at a corporate training in Cleveland, OH and right from the start you could tell this woman had something very special about her.  Little did I know not only does she have immense experience with network marketing and b2b skills like no other but she could take pictures that captured moments I’ve never seen before.  Her professionalism, charismatic personality made the photo shoot comfortable and yet so enjoyable that she now will be doing all the photos on a go forward basis for our company and we will be recommending her to our inner circle on projects.  Thank you Elise for doing such a great job on the pictures and showing so much joy, love, integrity and service, you are the real deal and true pro of photography!”

Kyle Urfer, Vice President, Print & Promotions at Proforma, October 25, 2013

Ms. Capillo while doing a photo shoot under her direction put me at ease from start to finish. Her use of words while giving direction was key for how my photos turned out. Elise's eye for the use of background, lighting. Body language, facial expressions and the right clothing believe it or not played a critical role in the creation of the moment. Looking at my photos I couldn't even believe it was me I was looking at. My business and career benefited greatly in the use of my photos in brochures, business cards, website and more. Thank you again Elise for your gift of photography, my life has been enhanced in an incredible way. Robert Bethea RJB Sports Consulting, July 5, 2017
