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.

I can’t even put into words what you’ve done. To say that you brought us back, and captured the best moments of our lives would be such an understatement. There are moments that look like paintings, and others that are dreams. And so many that simply took our breath away.
Thank you is not enough, but thank you again. We feel truly lucky.
I cannot say enough good things about Elena and her stunning photos. Elena is so kind, easygoing, and so easy to be around which is extremely important when your not super comfortable in front of the camera. The photos we received from her were absolutely amazing. She was able to capture the joy, laughter, love and every other emotion you are feeling on your wedding day.These photos are something I will truly cherish for the rest of my life. I cannot tell you how many people have reached out to me saying they are the most gorgeous wedding photos they have ever seen. I highly recommend her to everyone. Thanks again Elena!!Jordan & Matt
