hi i'm lennie!

I’m a destination elopement and microwedding photographer documenting cute moments for carefree, adventurous, hopelessly in love couples all around the world! I call Portland, Oregon my home and my roots, BUT just give me five minutes and I'm packing up my suitcase or car to go wherever your love story takes you!

Welcome to my corner of the interwebs!


You're here cuz 

. . . 


What better way to experience the most epic parts of the world than with your favorite person?? Let’s grab your favorite snacks, put on our cutest comfy sweaters (or dresses), and hike in your favorite corner of the woods!


Let’s face it, adulthood is hard. We all could use a little more tapping into our whimsical side and romanticize our small, daily life moments. Wanna walk barefoot through the woods on a rainy day? Or tie little flowers in your hair and frolic through a field with your favorite person just for the heck of it? Or maybe just keeping things simple and bringing a book to your favorite coffee shop and just existing with your future husband/wife. YES TO ALL OF THAT

That's me! Let's make it happen


Just show up and be you! Let go of the idea of “perfect posing” and let’s hang out, have fun, laugh a lot, embrace the imperfect and get hella cute photos that look and feel like you in the process!

...the photos I take will highlight the unposed, carefree moments that show the essence of your unique connection and story. I'm dedicated to creating a space where you can truly be yourselves and can play, explore, goof off and just have fun in each other's presence while exploring or saying your vows in epic places! My dream is for you to walk away with gorgeous photos that feel authentic, capture the breathtaking views, tell the story of your day.

When you work with me, 

I’ve always been creatively minded and had a deep love for authentic, artistic photos and the feeling of nostalgia they bring. Over the years I’ve found that capturing those kinds of photos for couples—either on their wedding day or just out living their best life—really lights my soul on fire. 

why i can't wait to document your story

omg yes let's talk

Throw perfection out the window, grab your soulmate and let’s go chase a sunset in the mountains

My husband and I feel so grateful every time we look at our engagement/wedding photos that we chose Elena. Not only is her style artistic and effortless, but she felt like an instant friend and someone we were so comfortable around. We cannot wait to work with her again!

"She felt like an instant friend"

We were planning on doing a large local wedding with 100+ guests, but we ended up having a change in plans and decided to elope in Hawaii with just close family. I was nervous to approach her with this change but was so happy that she was just as excited about this change as we were. Elena was SO supportive and helpful in every way you can think of. If we did it over I would pick Elena as our photog every time!! I loved everything about working with her and would 100000% recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer to document their special day! She was so kind, compassionate, and easy to communicate with, not to mention how comfortable she makes you feel in front of the camera!

"elena was a dream to work with!"

She is incredibly talented and her work is truly amazing. We had Elena do our Engagement Photographer and I could not imagine having had anyone else capture these moments for us. My fiance and I are incredibly awkward the second a camera is turned on us so we were quite nervous. Elena was able to calm these nerves in our first conversation. During our photo sessions she provided guidance and helped coach us along the way but also sort of faded in the background - with this my fiancé and I were able to get really comfortable and act...normal. Looking past her level of professionalism and expert experience she is a very kind and genuine human. She offers advice and works WITH you to make YOUR vision come to life while adding her perspective. I can not recommend Elena enough - Her talent, her kindness and her work are unmeasurable.

"Typically I have all the right words for reviews but I am speechless"

She made us so comfortable during our engagement shoot, even though it was our first time meeting her. She was so friendly and knew exactly how to direct us to capture such perfect moments. Thank you so much, Elena! You are a gem :)

"We absolutely loved our experience"

We LOVED working with Elena - she was organized, flexible, and upbeat the entire day. We had an elopement style session in Colorado, so she came and met us there and handled the new venue, different landscape options, and all the twists and turns of a typical wedding day like a serious (but fun) professional.

Elena did such a great job of capturing all of the special moments and making sure to highlight the details (rings, vow books, etc.) as well as the big picture (ceremony, family pictures, etc.)! We are overjoyed to have her amazing photos to look back on.

"The photos are absolutely gorgeous and we got to have FUN while taking them"
