EMK_6385web-noresize-300x200 Testimonials Elina Photography

 

“Elina was my wedding photographer and we could not have wished for better! She was great at improvising when it was pouring down with rain so could not go the location we had planned at the time for certain photos. The photos we received were all so beautiful and really captured the essence of the day, and managed to get lovely natural moments and even smiley pictures of those people that can never seem to smile for photos! The best part was, I didn’t have to worry, I felt like I could completely trust Elina to do her thing and just knew we would have an amazing wedding album.”

“Elina, loving the photos! What a talented lady you are. You really captured the happiness and fun of the whole day.”

Vanessa, Mother of the bride

“Thank you so much again for being part of our special day, lots of people have mentioned how professional and lovely you were, and how great the photos are that they’ve seen. Thank you. You were a big hit with Letty’s little girls – Elsey now apparently wants to be a photographer when she grows up!”

Faye & Rowan

“Time and time again Elina delivers super images and photography services with professionalism and charisma, I am an extremely happy repeat customer. Many photographers can take superb shots but few offer the creative direction, proactivity and x-factor that Elina brings.”

Tanya Brittain, Event Director, Looe Music Festival

Elina is a truly excellent photographer. From large scale events to intimate personal occasions her work is stunning. She’s not just a service, she’s a proper artist. She cares deeply about her work. And she should, because it’s often exceptional. One of the friendliest, most flexible and imaginative photographers out there.”

David Heinemann, Index On Censorship

Elina is incredible… It’s hard to put into words just how awesome it was having her photograph our wedding. She is a brilliant photographer and captured so many special moments – she has an incredible eye… She’s also a super pleasure just to have around (she sat on a step, comforting my mother who was otherwise stressing, for at least an hour)! I’d stick her on my creative team tomorrow, if only she wasn’t in such high demand… I can’t wait to have a chance to work with her again! THANK YOU ELINA 🙂

Joe & Cata

Elina photographed our Wedding in July, she was awesome, you barely saw her, very unobtrusive and yet she managed to get everywhere and photograph everything! We are so happy with our photos which were back to us so much quicker than we expected (with a delightful surprise 🙂 ).  She captured our day perfectly. Thanks so much <3

Bryony & Howard

“We are soooooo pleased with the photos that we will get several of them framed, which is saying something for two people who hate having their photo taken! You did such a brilliant job!”

Amy & Will

My husband and I met & fell in love three years ago, at a unique music festival in the southwest. It was there that we were introduced to the beautiful Elina, backstage, over a pint of beer & lots of late night dancing. When we returned I saw some amazing shots online that she had taken over the weekend, working for the festival. Elina had really captured the electric energy of the event and all the interesting characters we had met. Three years on it only seemed right to get in touch with Elina to ask if she’d be interested in taking pregnancy shots of me before I ‘popped’. I really wanted to capture this special moment in my life as a woman on the verge of motherhood, feeling proud to have grown this tiny human being inside me for nine months, and extremely excited and nervous for the new life ahead. I wasn’t entirely sure what kind of shots I wanted, but Elina quickly guided and inspired me to discover ideas and to express how I feel. On her arrival she immediately made me feel at ease with her calmness and confidence. We had decided to carry out the shoot in our home so we walked around the house with a cup of tea, discussing ideas of areas and backgrounds that we liked. Elina pointed out the places that were best for light after capturing some test shots. I felt a little nervous, but as soon as we began the shoot Elina immediately made me feel like a million dollars. In fact, by the end of the shoot I even asked my husband to come in and watch us at work! I felt so comfortable, and together we created some really beautiful shots that I will cherish forever. A week later our gorgeous little boy Phoenix arrived and we knew exactly who we’d call to capture his first couple of weeks of being alive. In fact we love her so much that my husband even did some professional shots for his work too. I can’t thank you enough Elina. I’m sure we will see you again soon! You’re becoming our very own personal photographer and we love you.

“Oh my God! Absolutely amazing. We’ve just looked through them all and they’re fantastic. Thank you so much. They’re just utterly brilliant, you are a genius!”

Helen & Stuart

“Elina gave us beautiful, episodic photos capturing all that our wedding was. The final album was the perfect combination of timing and technique, culminating in the moments captured. We can’t speak highly enough of her contribution over the wedding – weekend.”

Helene & Dan

“The photos are amazing, thank you so much for them!”

Maria & Rob

“I’ve worked with Elina on many photo shoots and it’s always a joy to be photographed by her. She is an extremely professional and creative photographer, with endless ideas and a knack for making her subject feel comfortable. I can’t wait to work with her again!”

Kat Marsh, Lionface (band)

“Elina was very thoughtful, conscientious, prompt, and most of all cared about my business. I wanted quality and bespoke images rather than what you buy online. Elina made me feel relaxed on the day and returned the images next day! The photos were of such a high standard, I recommended her to a friend who also runs a business.”

Peter McCarvill, Logic Fit, Founder

“Working with Elina was a breeze from the very beginning. Having our own engagement shoot really gave us the time to get to know her, to get used to having our picture taken and to have the confidence that our end result would be amazing. Elina ensured that we were thoroughly involved in planning the style and content of our wedding pictures and throughout the actual day, we barely noticed she was there. This may sound odd, but it was really important to us that the photo taking wouldn’t eat up a big chunk of our time; we wanted to spend it with each other and our guests.

We received our photos back swiftly and are so happy with the results. I would recommend Elina to anyone – she will make you feel so special and will capture all the special moments. It has been great to relive the day all over again by looking at our pictures!”

Chloe & Dan

“It’s hard to sum up in a few words just what choosing Elina to capture photographs of an event means. As an Event Manager I’m used to planning everything in detail and subsequently taking a very hands-on approach to ensuring that all the details are delivered as planned. When working with Elina I’m afforded a rare opportunity to do the exact opposite, which meant that on our wedding day Emma and I could focus on enjoying the day. The quality of even a single image can have such huge importance for a business or event, but for a couple experiencing the most momentous day of their lives it takes on a far more sentimental and enduring significance. Our wedding photographs not only spark our own brilliant memories from a beautiful winter day but offer us a whole new perspective on the occasion. Elina is a brilliantly competent, subtle, respectful, versatile, inventive, enthusiastic photographer, a reflection of her qualities as a person. Both Emma and I would unreservedly recommend her to anyone who may be looking for professional wedding photography. Value for money can be a sensitive area with weddings being an expensive endeavour, but we cannot more strongly emphasise the importance of investing in one of the few budget items that you can take with you for life, and Elina is worth every penny. In working with Elina what you are buying is peace of mind, which is the most valuable detail a photographer can offer.”
