True love: It's deliberate. it's intentional. it's purposeful. and in the end, it's worth it.

I'm a WIFE to the most incredible man a girl could ask for. My best friend of 11 years. My backbone. The kind of guy who loves with action, who makes me laugh daily, and who is unafraid to join to me in absurd sing alongs in the car or spontaneous dance parties in the kitchen. 

MOTHER to the most beautiful + adventurous kids who have the biggest personalities. No one can make me love harder and laugh louder than these two. 

I call the Tampa Bay area my home, but I’m a WANDERLUST at heart.  

COFFEE LOVER. Preferably Starbucks, but honestly, I’ll take coffee in any form; hot, iced, frothy, frozen, intravenous…you get the point. 

NATURAL PLANNER. Lists make me happy. I’m the type who’s got a plan for my plans. 

FOOD NETWORK JUNKIE! However, I'm embarrassed to say that I’ve burnt water before!! Yes, I'm ferrr real. Speaking of TV, I can not go a day without watching THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JIMMY FALLON and pretend that we'd be BFF in real life. 

Most importantly, I aim to LOVE PEOPLE the best I can. THE WAY CHRIST LOVES ME. Without Him, I wouldn't be passionately pursuing this life He's called me to.

“Lovely one, nothing you do can undo the Cross, so freely and securely dream on, build on, and lead on. “

I’m an ADMIRER OF PEOPLE + THEIR LOVE STORIES. If you've got a story to share, I'd love to hear it. Shoot me an email for more info or say HELLO!    

Feel free to connect with me on Facebook & Instagram. I can’t wait to meet you!

I was digging through some boxes one day. They were filled to the brim with albums of old family photos....and that’s when I found it. My parents' wedding photos. Everything from their wedding day filled a small 5x7 gold & silver framed album. When I shuffled those images around, it made me recall all the stories I was told of when they were dating and the early years of their marriage. It made me want to jump back in time and get to know the younger versions of them. I wanted to piece together their love story from the beginning.  That’s the power of photographs. It moves us. It transports us. It makes us remember. I understand that what I do is much more than taking pretty photos. I am telling a story.

Your story.

I'm a bit of a romantic. I believe in love. I believe in marriage. The deliberate, intentional, purposeful kind. Which is why I strive to create timeless images that captures who you are and how you felt in that moment. Images that will transport you back after 20 years. I want your children and grandchildren to have the 'box of photos' moment like I did. I recognize that, as a visual story teller,  I'm preserving your love story  for the next generation. 

I love a good story and I'd love to hear yours

There are a ton of photographers out there. I hope you take the time and find one that you connect with.  Can you envision them telling your story? Are you here right now because your heart tells you I'm your photographer? Then shoot me an email. Tell me about yourself and your wedding. I love a good story and would love to hear yours

I document  a limited amount of weddings each year because I value quality over quantity. I believe in creating an experience that is uniquely yours because there is no other love story like it. Feel free to CONTACT me for more information on detailed investment options + availability.

I understand that no couple or wedding is the same. For intimate weddings, elopements, and destination weddings. Please Inquire within.

Hello friend! Thank you for your interest in my work. At this time, I’m currently “hitting pause” on accepting new contracts. On the bright side, I have partnered with my awesome friend and talented photographer, Shawna Meadors, as her associate/2nd photographer on wedding days based on my availability. For inquiries + bookings, please contact her at www.shawnameadors.com. I know you’ll be in the most capable hands. I wish you all the best and many blessings on your marriage.

Much love,

Elaine
