Creative Wedding and Portrait Photography // Portland, Oregon


meet ELANA


Get to know me>>

Hi, I'm Elana, and I'm an artist, a storyteller, and a lover of adventure. Those things intersect perfectly into the medium of photography, allowing me to spend my time doing what I love. That L-O-V-E translates into each of my client relationships, giving way to a process that is personal, fun, and completely true-to-you. I hope we have a chance to connect over coffee soon.

I'm a California girl turned Pacific Northwest transplant, wife to an incredible husband, and mama to a beautiful, spunky little girl called Hazel.

I picked up photography in high school after watching my dad shoot professionally for much of my childhood. One sophomore elective later, I was hooked. Hooked on the satisfying sound of manually advancing film in my analog camera, on the way my hands smelled after hours in the darkroom, on the painstaking process of developing the perfect print.

I went on to earn a BFA in Photography from California State University, Fullerton, and it's been a grand adventure ever since.

I love the way that sharing a delicious meal brings people together. Few things give me as much joy as feeding the people I love. Luckily, I have a large table!


If you look up "wanderlust" in the dictionary, it's likely you'd see a picture of my face. I have lived in India, traveled to 13 countries, and have just barely gotten started. Top destination on my
bucket list: Iceland.


Coffee is my love language. Need I say more?

Let me buy you a cuppa.


Truly. This is not a joke. I love to organize, color-code, coordinate by type, size, function--you name it! Suddenly there is no going back. You officially cannot unsee my inner nerd. Welcome.


Cliche? Maybe. True? Absolutely. The more ways I can find to be adventurous, the better. From exploring new places, to trying weird foods (deep fried bugs, anyone?), I am always ready for the next adventure.


Photography pun intended. There's plenty more where that came from, so if you think I'm remotely interesting, or you just like the photos I take, I would love to hear from you! Let's create something together.

Think we'll click?
