Personal Story

 

Hi there, my name is Elina! I am an Amsterdam based photographer, specialising in wedding and portrait photography. Strongly influenced by my former education in fashion, my images reflect the love for details and editorial feel. My journey in wedding photography began when I was honoured to photograph my friend’s wedding in 2014. Capturing genuine emotions and being a part of someone else’s special day was such an astonishing experience for me. Ever since then I have determined to become lovers photographer and bring joy to others by seizing their moment onto a photograph and creating their heirloom for generations to watch. I have yet never looked back, and it has been the most spectacular journey since!

On a wedding day I am inspired by stunning bouquets, gorgeous engagement rings, hand crafted stationaries and genuine smiles. Details and emotions are my number one priority on your wedding day. I am passionate about intimate and non-traditional weddings that take most of their celebration outdoors. Natural light is a great foundation of my photographic style. I love playing with the light to create warm skin tones and softness in my photographs to translate the elegance of the wedding day. 

I like to call my work timeless, elegant and genuine. I love getting to know my couples so I am not a complete stranger at your wedding day. I always suggest to meet at least 6 months prior to your wedding day to find out exactly what you are looking for in your wedding photographer and of course to hear all about your love story and your passion.

Amsterdam


While I am not photographing you can find me wondering around the city of Amsterdam watching people and sunsets. Despite of walks I love to rewind by doing yoga and pilates, either home or in a studio.

Beauty in simple things


“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” -Steve Jobs

Coffee Addict


I love the rich taste of freshly brewed coffee. My favourite type of coffee is flat white. A couple of my beloved coffee places in Amsterdam that you should visit, if you are a coffee lover too: TOKI, Bocca Coffee and Lot Sixty One Coffee Roasters in Amsterdam.

Plants


I just love nature and everything green! Especially house plants: tiny, huge, weird, any kind! My home starts to turn into a mini version of a botanical garden! I hope slowly it will turn into my own modest jungle.

Travelling is my obsession


“The most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself.” -Wallace Stevens

Kind Words

Teodora + Bob

“Elina truly is talented! I’ve worked with her a few times in the past, but our wedding photos exceeded expectations. A lot of photographers can deliver high resolution, good images of yourself, but she captures moments, not everyone can spot. Elina has an artistic eye and her photos are art, not just good-quality shots. She is very pleasant to work with, such a sweet and professional person. If you’re looking for beautiful, artistic photos of your special day, Elina is the person to work with. Highly recommended!”

JIYEON + VINH

 “Elina is AMAZING! I would definitely recommend her as your wedding photographer. She is really kind and very nice to work with! We met her prior to our wedding and we immediately had a great feeling about her. She listens and understands your wishes very well and that led to amazing pictures of the most beautiful moments she has captured :)”

MarijE + Julien

“Elina’s pictures are amazing. She captured our wedding in a great way. She made sure there were individual pictures of all our guest, action shots, pictures of the details and even great pictures of us as a couple – although we first thought we would not like such pictures. During the day she blended very well with our guests and although she was present it did not feel intrusive at all even though we were only with a small group of people (17 persons). We are happy to have had her at our wedding and recommend her with all our hart to any one looking for an exceptional photographer!” 

Vernice + SHELTOn

“Elina was the photographer at our wedding in June, 2018. We met her prior to our wedding and we immediately felt confident about having her as our photographer. She is very talented and captured all our big moments in an artistic way. We are really happy with the results. She made beautiful shots of us as a couple, but also made sure to include shots of our guests, action shots and detailed shots. She is very professional and pleasant to work with, and understands your wishes very well. We would highly recommend her!”

Marlene + MANfred

“We were looking for someone who doesn‘t do the typical, kitschy wedding shoot. And we found the right person. We really wanted to have pictures that show the atmosphere, love and the people who came together to celebrate and that‘s what we got. Elina captured great moments and everybody felt very comfortable around her!”
