In E’Lisa’s words:

“Hi!  My name is E’Lisa and I am a full time lifestyle wedding and portrait photographer, and educator of the Moment Design Technique. I love connecting with my clients and finding beauty in life’s chaos.  I believe that connection is everything in this business. I enjoy spending time in nature with my husband and 2 daughters on our homestead where we grow lots of food and flowers over the summer months.”
