High Quality and Easy Experience
Elena was exceptional with my engagement photo shoot. I planned to surprise my then girlfriend at the summit of a trail in the NC mountains. Elena was responsive, helpful and flexible throughout all of the planning process. She set up a facetime with me when I was initially planning the idea to set up the photo shoot which was very beneficial. Throughout the entire process she was always willing to help and very flexible. Not only did she hike up a tough trail to the site of the photo shoot, she was in the right place(undercover) to successfully capture the moment. There was a chance of rain the night before and I was able to contact Elena late in the evening and change the time by an hour. She provided me with updates throughout day of the engagement and which gave me great comfort. If you are planning any type of surprise you can especially count on Elena to be in the right place at the right time. She is extremely professional and charges an great price as well. The quality of the photos were excellent and we received them fully edited a couple of days after. I 110% recommend Elena for your photography needs!Sent on 05/21/2020
Focus on the Moment Photography's reply:Thank you for your kind words! Glad to shoot you proposing to Anna on the top of the mountain! You were so sweet and emotional! It was such an honor for me to be a witness of this important event. I wish both of you lots of luck and love of each other!

Beautiful Wedding Photography
Elena did an excellent job photographing my wedding! She is a very professional and experienced photographer. We had a "COVID wedding" which presented some unique challenges, but she did a great job overcoming any "COVID difficulties" and adjusting to any last minute changes/surprises. I would recommend her to anyone interested in high-quality, professional, and beautiful photos! We couldn't be happier with our photos :)Sent on 10/10/2020
