Molly is amazing. I hired her to do senior photos a few years ago, and called her up when we needed a wedding photographer. Molly is warm, personable, professional and her work is gorgeous. She is innovative, but also brilliant with more traditional arrangements. I highly recommend her.

Honestly… Having Molly do our photos was the best decision I've ever made! She was so sweet and fun to work with! She made sure to make my stiff and awkward fiancé feel comfortable. She captured our love perfectly… So perfectly that I couldn't help but sob looking through them! I am beyond pleased, and would recommend her to anyone!

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of having Molly do our engagement photos and the experience was so much more than I could have imagined. We'd never had photos done before, so we were a little nervous ahead of time and as soon as we met Molly we both felt like we had known her for years. The shoot was incredibly fun, photos look stunning, and was overall an experience that we both loved. I would HIGHLY recommend her to any couples or seniors looking for a beautiful set of photos and a truly adorable and amazing photographer. We can't wait to book another session with her!!!

If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Molly is truly an amazing photographer. First of all, she generously gave us a complimentary engagement session through an Instagram giveaway we entered. Second, it was very easy setting up a session with her and our photos blew me (and everyone who saw them) away!! I would highly recommend using her for engagement/wedding photos. Thanks again Molly for helping us create such beautiful memories!!

I am so happy with how our photos turned out. From the engagement session to the wedding, the pictures were exactly what my husband and I wanted. Even though we got married in Encinitas, CA Molly was able to shoot our wedding and capture literally every memory of that day in all its stunning glory. She is such a pleasure to work and I have recommended her to several of my friends. I can't imagine having our wedding without Molly McElenney Photography.

Molly was a wonderful photographer for our wedding in December. We can't thank her enough for all that she has done for us from the engagement photos to the phenomenal wedding photos. She was accommodating, patient, gracious and kind. Molly went above and beyond- I was would recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful wedding photos and a lovely photographer, if you are then.... Molly is YOUR gal!

LAURA G.

Molly was eager to capture our engagement photos. She is extremely responsive to emails and communication, has great suggestions for settings & locations, and made us feel completely comfortable during the shoot. I would absolutely use Molly again for any photography purpose, and if you're looking for a photographer with plenty of creativity and professionalism, Molly EXCEEDED our expectations! Thank you so much Molly :)

Molly is, without a doubt, the best photographer that you could ask for! She did both my engagement photos earlier this year and wedding photos this last Saturday. Not only are her photos BEYOND stunning, but she is incredibly professional and such a pleasure to work with! She makes you feel so special and glamorous throughout the entire shoot! But most of all, she makes you feel like family. Thank you, Molly, for being such a wonderful part of our family!! We love you! 

KELLY O.

Honestly can't thank Molly enough for traveling to photograph our wedding in the small town of Los Olivos, California. She did an amazing job and was so great at organizing all of us to get the best pictures. She was so flexible on the day-of and I'm literally melting over her photos. We did a 'first look' (which turned me into an emotional mess), but Molly knew exactly what to do to create the most amazing pictures. I've already recommended her to other couples and will continue to do so. Thank you so so much for capturing our day girl!

what I'm all about...

I'm a full time photographer based out of the gorgeous Arizona desert. I've fallen in love with the desert and I'll never look back. That said, I LOVE traveling, and I'm always ready for an adventure with my clients. I love concerts, game shows, long road trips, telling people to twirl their hair while I take pictures of them, and breaking out my best dance moves on any dance floor I happen upon. My job is the best job in the world - photographing people at the biggest moments in their lives. Traditional portraits are not my jam, so if that's what you're going for, I might not be exactly what you're looking for, and that's okay! But if you want to run around and snuggle with your babe, twirl your hair, laugh at my horrible jokes and bump to some music while we make some gorgeous memories, I'm your girl!

more about me

c

Concerts.

I've been to over 40 concerts and I don't regret a single one. Beyonce (WHO RUNS THE WORLD?!), J.T., The Beach Boys and Jason Mraz were among some of the favorite nights of my life! Hanging out with a bunch of people who love to belt the same songs I do gives me such life! 

Cacti.

The desert has been my home for as long as I can remember, and I've always had a love-hate relationship with it. But in these past few years of my photography career, I have found so much beauty in the gorgeous Sonoran Desert. Cacti scare me to death, (the jumping ones, especially) but I've decorated my home and my work with them - they are just so beautiful! 

Coffee Mugs.

This is one of the more ridiculous things I love... mostly because I don't drink coffee. And yet, I have 20 something mugs sitting in my cupboard! I drink water out of them and I'm perfectly okay with that. Mugs are just so darn cute and I don't feel like missing out just because I'm not a java-lover.
