Here's what clients are saying...
"Truly an invaluable resource to the Michigan music community and scene..." - Ted
"We engaged Crooked Tree in a pinch based on a recommendation. Best recommendation! Elle is so well organized and connected that we went from chaos to cool in minutes. She stuck with us and final product was perfect. If you are looking for an agent, Elle and her team are the best! We think the world of her and so will you." - Brooke
"Elle is a visionary and her passion and abilities seem endless. From her b-side sessions, to musical events, to her artist development skills, photography, websites, etc, she’s a dynamic gem! I feel very fortunate to be working with her and her capable team! Excited for what’s to come!" - Zach
"Founder and CEO Elle Pellegrom could be one of the hardest working women in Michigan music (or any industry, for that matter). She's never on pause. She's as driven as she is intuitive, and when it comes to moving a business or career forward I trust her judgement unreservedly. She and her team are rock stars." - Christine
"We had our first ever band photo shoot with Elle and she helped us come up with a concept, chose great locations, and captured our dynamic as a trio. We also had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend working with her!" - Patty
"Elle is very thorough and thoughtful when working with artists. This is true for her photography, her booking agency, her artist development consulting, and the B-Side sessions. Very professional yet not at all intimidating. I highly recommend working with Crooked Tree..." - Sandra
"Elle is a breath of fresh air to work with! So incredibly down-to-earth. If you are even *the least bit* nervous in front of a camera, feeling a bit awkward going into the shoot, or generally unsure of what to do with your hands (like me!), she will ease your mind AND make you look sharp! She took photos for my band’s EP release, and we ended up featuring her work on the front and back covers of our album. Conceptually, we knew what we wanted going into the shoot, but weren’t sure of where or how to achieve it. She did a wonderful job capturing the vintage, 1920s Gatsby-vibe we were hoping to create with our cover art. She’s very skilled, kind, and patient. You will not regret your decision to work with Elle!" - Alicia
"My experience at Crooked Tree Creative was **astonishing**, to say the least. Elle captures her shots with great professionalism and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. BONUS: I’ve never gotten my finished photos as quickly as I did with her. You can feel the energy or whatever she captures, right through her photos." - Lily
"I worked with Elle Lively with CTC. I had headshots done for my business and I've always felt uncomfortable getting my picture taken. She was able to get some incredibly professional and model-like shots out of me. I can't believe I'm saying that, because I didn't think it was possible, but she did it. She took her time, made sure I felt comfortable, played around with lighting and background, and ultimately took photos of me I'm proud to show other people. I'd highly recommend her for any of your photography needs. There isn't anybody better, as far as I'm concerned, in the whole business! Thanks CTC!" - Marshall
"Versatile and fresh in the approach to photography. Portraits have a vivid connection to the individual’s personality. Live shots capture the moment with clarity." - Donna
