About Us

My name is Gene Elrod, Owner and photographer for The Studio I DO; I love my job, my family sunshine, blue sky and white puffy clouds. I can’t live without music or my guitar. My closet is color coordinated.......mostly with black, brown and blue. I love traveling but hate to pack, my dream vacation is an around the world tropical tour with my wonderful wife.

What are you passionate about? Photography is a way to capture those special memories that are important to all of us. Life, love, laughter, tears, excitement, energy; there are many emotions surrounding a wedding day.

Having the privilege to be a part of capturing those memories stirs the creativity within me. Being the father of two girls, 14 and 16 years old, causes me to think about their wedding day each time I see a bride walking down the aisle or sharing a dance with daddy. My desire is to bring couples what I would want for my own little girls.

I have shared this honor with hundreds of families over the past 10 years and would enjoy speaking with you more about your wedding plans. Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I look forward to meeting you personally
