“There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.” Van Gogh

I’m Lena, a warm-hearted Fine Art Hybrid Photographer who is driven by love, a pursuer of beauty, and a storyteller for dreamers.

I believe your story is important and it deserves to be told in a beautiful and timeless way.

Not only will I curate your photographs using composition, creativity and colour palettes that showcase your personality as a couple, I will also illustrate the intricate sentimental details that shape your unique love story.

I artistically capture the intimacy between you and your loved one the way you remember feeling it, in a style that is ethereal, intimate and wildly romantic.

Since photographing my first wedding in 2010, I have purposefully documented those moments that move your heart, light up your soul and inspire you to deeply cherish those around you. Your precious memories are then preserved in elegant, quality heirlooms that you will treasure forever.

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… going for a drive with my hubby to visit scenic gardens or near the ocean for a hike and a picnic. Discovering a new cafe along the way for brunch is a must!

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… floating in the sky amongst a thousand balloons, soaring between mountain valleys and brushing past cliff edges, watching the sun rise above the mountains at the break of dawn in Cappadocia.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… France! I spent seven years learning French in school and fell in love with the art, culture, architecture and aesthetics. I’ve visited most places in France including Paris, the Loire Valley, Provence, Mont Saint Michel, but I’m dreaming about going back again as there is still so much more to explore and photograph!

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… having the chance to meet beautiful couples from all around the world and helping them to unfold their love stories. Being able to inspire them to cherish both themselves and their loved ones deeply through precious light-filled photographs. When they see themselves in a brand-new light they have never seen before, they know how loved and worthy they are.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE… I honestly cannot imagine a different life to the one I am living. I embrace each and every day fully with conviction and purpose. Being an artist is my life’s calling and photography is simply one medium through which I can express my love for people and the rich beauty of the world around me.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE…
share your love story with artists whose work aligns with your vision for your big day and then trust them with it. When you and the team you’ve chosen are creating beauty in harmony, remarkable magic happens!

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… In Melbourne, there are a plethora of gorgeous cafes, beautiful architecture, gardens, and it’s just a short drive away to see wineries, mountains and oceans vistas. We are spoilt for choice with dreamy and romantic scenic spots.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… I would still choose Melbourne. As much as I love travelling the world, I’m very close to my parents and family and want to spend as much time with them as I can. Melbourne is my home, but I would love to spend my older years in New Zealand - our friendly neighbour with even more amazing scenery than we have here!

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? Oh I loooove Lord of the Rings! The scene of Rivendell is like heaven to me, with twinkling waterfalls and timeless architecture drenched in the purest light. I love Tolkien’s vision for such an ethereal world.
