My style is emotive and ethereal. I am drawn to beautiful light and natural, joyful movement.
In any striking image, there is usually one detail that will pierce the viewer, compelling him or her to fall in love with it. My intention is to capture this detail, creating photographs that are genuine, emotion fueled, and artistic.
I am based in Pasadena, California & have a degree in photography from Loyola Marymount University.

Look no further for the best wedding photographer!
Planning a wedding during COVID was one of the most stressful times of my life - from ever-changing plans to possible cancellations/postponements, to the stress of the unknown and what was to come of the day. That is why it was SO important to find good vendors that were flexible, talented and trustworthy. Enter Elyana. I stumbled upon her website through various wedding websites and social media platforms and was instantly in love with her work. I reached out and she responded promptly to set up an initial call to get to know each other and make sure we were a good fit. I got great vibes from her immediately. She had great ideas/suggestions, a calming demeanor and was always so responsive and flexible to my ever-changing plans. My husband and I were very nervous for the photography aspect of the wedding day, as neither of us are super comfortable in front of the camera. Elyana put all of our nerves at ease - she made us laugh and most importantly, made sure we were having fun! She was so kind and patient with us and all of our wedding guests. She was incredibly organized and stuck exactly to the schedule that we had worked out before, so that all the photos we wanted were captured. She was quick to return the final photos and we couldn't be more in love with the final product. I cannot recommend her enough - she truly is one of a kind and her work is fantastic!Sent on 05/26/2021

Elyana was recommended to us by a close friend. We feel SO happy that we found out about her! Her ability to capture natural light and colors, PLUS beautiful emotion and genuine moments is amazing. She also has a great energy about her and we instantly felt so comfortable around her! She's professional and a master at her craft, yet very approachable and friendly --- exactly the type of person you want around you on your wedding day. We honestly can't recommend her enough. Including some from our day plus some more favs that really drew us to her work!Sent on 06/28/2021

Elyana is such a delight to work with! Our engagement session was so fun, she made us both feel so comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. Due to the pandemic our wedding plans changed and we were married in my in laws backyard. I was really nervous to see how the photos would come out with a backyard wedding. Elyana spent time talking with me before the wedding to go over timelines which saved the day! She helped me remember so many little details I would have overlooked or forgotten. Our wedding photos came out better than I could have ever imagined. Elyana has a true gift and her love for her work really shows.Sent on 10/01/2020
