Elena is a Wisconsin-based photographer with a passion for preserving life’s most beautiful moments. While her educational background is in sociology, art and French, she practiced and taught photography throughout college in Minnesota, as well as spending some time in France before ultimately moving to Milwaukee with her partner Rheise and their two cats, Chicory and Nettle. She fell in love with photography at eight years old and has lived behind her camera since: realizing that her camera could freeze moments in time, preserving the emotions and essence of each unique moment. This lifelong passion produced a personal yet universal style that is often described as classic, nostalgic, or timeless. No matter what style a client prefers, Elena strives to capture genuine emotions, intimate connections, and authentic moments. Her work is often inspired by the special personalities and lived experiences of her clients.
