Photography is very meditative for me. It’s a whole process: exploring new locations, connecting with the ones I am photographing and capturing them in a way that is both artistic and intentional, etc. When I photograph, I feel connected to something greater. Where so many things these days feel draining and chaotic, photography energizes and centers me.
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.

Exceeded all our expectations-best wedding photographer
There are not enough words to describe how happy my husband, myself and our families were with our wedding photos, shot by the incredible Elyana. What a hidden gem of the LA photographer world!Sent on 12/07/2018
We were planning our wedding from across the country, and from the beginning, she put us at ease. We had great phone calls, she showed us her portfolio, and just went above and beyond. Her meticulous planning, easy spirit, and talent really speak through the beautiful pictures that were captured.
We went with the full day package plus a second shooter, and we were so glad we did! They were able to capture all the moments we were looking for, documenting a photo journalistic approach that lead to amazing candids, sweet moments, and literally a photo of every single guest at our wedding. I could not believe that. every single guest was captured in a beautiful and natural way, giving us an album that transports us back to each and every moment, allowing us to see multiple angles, and ensure that all the photos we wanted were captured. Her subtle way of keeping the day going, without being commanding or pushy was incredibly appreciated, as wrangling bridal party and family alike takes effort. Not to mention her charm and amazing personality really put us at ease and allowed us to feel like old friends, very quickly.
We have received so many compliments on our photos, and have heard many "these are some of the best wedding photos we have seen!" multiple times over. Her ability to capture natural light was an artistic expression that really sold us on her work, and blew us away, as our ceremony was outside on a beautiful sunny day. It is hard to chose a favorite photo, and we didn't have to wait long! We received our photos within the month. She even went the extra mile to provide additional edits upon request. There is nothing she can't do!
there is so much more I could stay, but simply put, don't overthink this choice, Eylana will provide you with the most incredible photos of such a special day, and is the easiest and best decision from our wedding that we made!

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

My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience with Elyana for our engagement shoot. She was professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. From the moment we arrived at our shoot, she instantly put us both at ease and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. The photos turned out spectacular, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience!Sent on 01/18/2019
