Behind The Brand
How would you describe your photography style?
Timeless, raw, a mix between editorial and journalistic style, an eye for beautiful details. It’s always about people, genuine emotions, laughs, tears, and awkward moments.
What is it that makes an image magical?
The combination of honest and truly in love couples, with epic locations and good light.
What advice would you give to the camera-shy couple?
Just be you and enjoy the moment, you will forget you were even photographed.
Do you travel interstate or internationally?
Definitely! I’m traveling worldwide for destination weddings and that’s what truly inspires me. Originally I’m from Latvia, now based in London, but Bali and Italy almost feel like a second home.
As an estimate, how long does your editing process take?
In the beginning, right after the wedding, there are sneak peek photos. The fully edited gallery takes approximately eight weeks.
Describe a magical moment from a wedding you’ve photographed…
Every wedding day is special and unique. Absolutely love the dancing part, especially when meeting different cultures. Last year’s best dance moves were seen in Italy and continued in Morocco.
Why we love it…
Beautifully composed captures that spill with light and detail. From her cinematic landscapes to her intimate portraits and intricate reception shots, Elina’s work is undeniably charismatic and perpetually romantic.
For the couple…
Looking for timeless wedding photos that emanate with energy and feeling.
Elina’s eye for framing, harnessing light, and extracting detail is what makes her one of those incredible artists who’ll creatively capture each stylistic element of your ceremony and reception. Work closely with Elina to determine what time of the day will emit that beautiful, natural light for her to work her magic and document each aspect to perfection.
