Atmospheric Wedding Photography For The Wild At Heart

Wedding photography for couples who don’t mind getting their shoes a little sandy or dress a bit muddy to get an amazing shot.


Hi, I’m Elena!

I’m an alternative wedding photographer based in Surrey, but love to travel further afield. I offer beautiful wedding photography for hopelessly-in-love couples who don’t shy away from adventure. For lovers who’d rather ditch tradition and want their unique story, vision and emotion reflected in unposed, atmospheric photos.

If you’re after true human connection, the perfect and imperfect moments, the genuine laughs, hugs and tears you were there for or might even have missed, we might be a great match. Let’s get together to combine these beautiful, unstaged moments to create a meaningful story of your day – one you will be excited to relive with friends and family for years to come.

Find out more about me.

We’ve had the privilege to provide wedding photography to some really awesome couples in Surrey and beyond.  Each wedding is a unique affair that really shows the personalities of the coupes involved but at the same time is in tune with who we are as people: lovers of the great outdoors. 

Our blend of creative and journalistic wedding photography lets us capture the real emotions of the day and creates lasting memories that will be cherished forever. Take a look

'We have had nothing but amazing comments about Elena from all of our wedding guests who all felt truly comfortable.'

We’re super proud of our wedding photography and know we can help you get some amazing memories that you will cherish from the moment they hit your inbox.  Though we like to think our photos speak for themselves, we’ve also received some really kind words from our couples.

'Absolutely beautiful, everything we wanted and more. It's all perfectly captured with your photos that we'll treasure forever.'

'The photographs show such candid joy and beauty. I’m so happy we have such a gorgeous visual account of our wedding.'

We’re fortunate enough to not only have raving clients but also to have been published by the UK’s top wedding blogs and international publishing companies.

'Your relaxed approach to wedding photography made us all feel at ease, resulting in amazing candid photos everyone adored'

'Photos are so important. They are one of the only things you can keep and savour to remember the day and its details, which were perfectly captured by Elena.'

Telling the story of your day is a real privilege to me and one I don’t take lightly. I pour all my care and attention into each and every photo I deliver to you. With any of my 3 packages, you will get a selection of 10 images the day after the wedding, super speedy 2 week delivery of digital images and over 500 individually retouched photos. It’s not just about the gorgeous photos though – you also get a helpful, reliable, responsible professional to trust with one of the most important days of your life.    More info about my packages can be found here.

A wedding photography album is more than just a book of pictures, it’s an intimate love story crafted lovingly to bring back all the emotions you felt on that special day every time you open it. Whether that’s in a month or in 50 years time! It’s a story to share with your friends and family and to pass down to your children. An heirloom that stands the test of time.

'Thank you so much for the wedding album, words cannot express how gorgeous it is and how much we love it, it’s honestly so special and has absolutely blown us away!'
