Fantastic experience, excited to build a lifelong relationship with Hellena!
I made a shortlist of about 5 photographers I really loved that were roughly around the budget we set, sent the list to my partner and he ranked them in his preferred order. We sent emails out to 3 photographer who all got back to me and were super lovely; since Hellena was both of our top choice based on what we had researched, we scheduled a Zoom call with her. She was quick to respond and the initial virtual meet was easy and nice!
We absolutely LOVED her right away after the Zoom call (30 minutes, asked a ton of questions we had listed out beforehand) and went straight to booking after that call. We really loved her style and her vibe and she seemed really easy going and open/transparent about everything during our call.
We just had our engagement shoot done and as someone who doesn't really like having photos taken or doesn't believe myself to be photogenic, it was such a fun experience, even though I totally tripped during the session and completely fell forward. Hellena has been super flexible and a really awesome person all around. We've openly communicated and stayed in touch over the months since we booked her to make sure we were all comfortable and healthy and open to the locations we wanted to shoot at. We rescheduled our engagement shoot date and location and also worked with my hair and makeup artist to schedule my trial the same day, so everything worked out.
I am beyond excited to work with Hellena again for our wedding and our anniversary shoot, and hope to be able to book her again in the future for more life happenings and milestones after marriage!
Hellena is so talented and fun to be around!
Courteous, warm and talented wedding photographer!

My name is Hellena and I am so thrilled to see you here. I grew up in Southern California and relocated to the Bay Area in 2015! I have been doing photography since 2012 and specialize in small weddings, elopements, engagements, and maternity.
I am a full-time advocate for gender-based violence and an abolisher of mass incarceration of black and brown folks. I am a fur mama, Centro Americana 100%, hot Cheetos with Limon lover and wife!
One of the most important things for me during a session is to make sure you are comfortable, stunting, and having a blast! Photography for me isn't just a hobby but a genuine passion. Every client who decides to hire me ends up becoming my friend or long-term client.
On that note, thank you for considering me to be a part of your amazing day. It is truly a joy for me. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have.
Once again, gracias for visiting my site and I hope to hear from you soon!
