Vintage Camera
As your photographer I will be with you more than anyone else on your wedding day.  I will chaperone you and capture all the romantic moments of your wedding, from getting ready to your first dance together.

Photographer's Profile1.png

As a child it was often Elise's responsibly to carry and care for her father's camera on family vacations. It became a common request that she care for the camera and in return instruction to use the device was given. The spark for photography was lit when her Dad bought her her own camera and it was used on a class field trip to the Smithsonian. The camera and the photos from that trip are treasures that reside with her to this very day. They are a reminder of how important it is to capture memories.


Elise attended UCSD on a full-ride tennis and academic scholarship. She graduated with degrees in Law, Economics and Visual Arts.  Her career in the Photographic Arts began over 30 years ago in the fashion industry, shooting models and covers for bridal and fashion magazines... this quickly transitioned into wedding photography.   Currently, she utilizes her experience in both visual arts and the fashion industry to capture her clients' visions. 


Elise is dedicated to capturing her clients' celebrations and preserving the memories that will last a lifetime. 


With over 2000 weddings to my credit, I have always been committed to capturing the most beautiful and genuine moments of every couple’s special day. Having recently experienced my own wedding, I have an even deeper appreciation for the emotions, reactions and nuances that each wedding brings.
