Hey there! I’m Elan – born and raised in California, and traveling the globe to capture beautiful events and meaningful moments. I am descended from a lineage of Norwegian seafarers, American animators, sculptors, and painters – exploration and creativity run in my veins.
I’m motivated to seek the beauty wherever I may be, and find inspiration all around me. A short list of things I adore: playful juxtapositions, simplicity and balance, clever design, culinary masterpieces, the natural world, travel, foreign languages, and beauty of the human experience.
I approach each event I capture with an editorial eye and fine art sensibility, composing and directing as I accompany you throughout your day to capture the beautiful moments and splendid details of your joyous occasion.
I thrive on adventure – I can be found shooting on location and around the globe frequently throughout the year, and I welcome every opportunity to visit beautiful destinations.
For all photographic inquiries, please send me a note via my inquiry page – I’d love to hear from you!
