Hi, I'm Elena
Photography has been my favourite thing for the past 12 years. I love the entire process of making pictures from the capturing of your memories, to the magic that happens on the computer screen. Ultimately though, it’s the smile on your face when the images hit your inbox that makes it so rewarding. Being trusted to deliver your memories is pretty damn awesome and a real privilege of the job.
I live in Surrey with my husband (who is also my second shooter!) but I’m not exclusively a Surrey wedding photographer – we both love to travel and will shoot weddings all around the world. I'm addicted to tea to the point where I sometimes go without drinking water for days. I have a little whippet puppy called Jimmy and I love him to bits.
I'm also a sucker for good food and long drives - probably what I spend most of my money on!
The raw, honest moments full of real emotion are what it’s all about. Which is why during our private shoot I won’t pose you but give you a bit of direction if you feel you need it. The way I work draws from your connection as a couple and I aim to fill each and every photo with your personalities. During the rest of the day I’ll be quietly observing and capturing each moment as it unfolds.
I have a soft spot for non-traditional, fun and quirky weddings full of creativity and personality. I firmly believe in making your own traditions and following your gut instinct, not other people’s expectations, when planning your wedding. Throw in an epic cliff top view or a thick canopy of leaves and it sounds like the perfect day! Bonus points for sharing your day with your fur babies!
I'd love to join you on your big adventure.
