About Us


Hi Everyone! Kaely Pillars, owner of Eleanor Kathryn Photography, here! After turning away many couples because I didn’t have their wedding date available, I had the idea of offering associate photographers for the couples who want to book their wedding with Eleanor Kathryn Photography, but can’t due to my full schedule.  That’s when Cumberland Weddings was born. Because of the requirements I have set for my associate photographers, finding the right photographers to represent my studio wasn’t easy. They had to be people that I trusted 100% and I had to know that they would provide my clients with the best experience & wedding photography.  Our team is full of amazing photographers, who share my passion for wedding photography. I am extremely fortunate to know this group of talented photographers both as colleagues & good friends, I’m so honored they have decided to join my team.

Our associate photographers are perfect for the couples that want the many advantages of working with my studio, but have a popular wedding date or a more limited budget to spend towards their wedding photography. My associate photographers’ styles are similar to what you’ve grown to love from EKP, they have years of experience and will provide consistent quality images for our clients.  Eleanor Kathryn Photography will oversee all of the client care, communication, image editing & product fulfillment, which frees up the associate photographers to do what they love the most — shooting your beautiful weddings!  If you are interested in booking one of our associates for your wedding, please fill out our contact form and make sure you mention if you have a preference on who you’d like to photograph your wedding.
