Hi there, I’m Elena.
Wedding photographer. Music lover.
And your official calm amidst the wedding storm.
I’ve been photographing weddings for over ten years (you should see my fancy black dress collection), and I specialize in a modern style of wedding photography that thrives on real moments and raw emotions.
This is wedding photography that is heartfelt and natural, moments that feel like you.
I’m the storyteller that celebrates with you.
I believe your wedding day is more than just a day.
It’s thousands of tiny, beautiful moments sparking to life.
Moments that will become your memories, waiting to be re-lived a thousand times over.
Combining a photojournalistic style with a creative use of light, I make storytelling an art.
Which means all you’ll have to do is soak up the atmosphere and do what you do best:
Shine bright on your wedding day.
From a tear quickly swept away to a big, head-tipped back, belly laugh,
I’ll be your photographic eyes, capturing both timeless traditions and one-of-a-kind moments, to
create images with heart, humor, and love.
