It’s ironic really… back at UCLA, Fred pursued and secured his degree in Anthropology with aspirations of being a writer. Elliott, studied Film Noir in undergrad school and locked down her Masters degree in photography. They met in Los Angeles in 2011 and quickly joined forces romantically and creatively after realizing a shared passion for all things food and photography - and crossword puzzles. So now, relocated on the East Coast, Fred has become the photographer and Elliott the chef and stylist. Together they have created Fred + Elliott Food Styling & Photography and, their extraordinary daughter Emerson Rose.
