Our Core Team
FOUNDER / FIRST PHOTOGRAPHER
Jelena is a former volleyball player, presenter and model. She brings her vast experience from being in the PR and advertising industry.
Since the beginning of her career, she was intrigued by the idea of beauty, elegancy and visual aesthetics. In 2010, Jelena started studying photography after she realized that capturing people’s precious moments and feelings was something that interest her the most. Since then, she has collaborated with some of the most prestigious wedding photographers in the U.S.
Through Elly Elite, she offers photography services with a unique sense of creating bonds and relationships. Her photographs have been published in many advertising, entertainment and fashion media outlets, but she is most proud of her editorials in Elle Magazine.
Rest assured, she will be there for you on your special day to make it mesmerizing with unique, sophisticated and eye-catchy moments. Jelena will make your once in a lifetime event unforgettable.
Because that’s what photography is all about: capturing moments that are important to you and turning them into lovely memories.
She collects her biggest inspirations from her travels. Long walks in Italy and sunsets among the Greek Islands would make her feel like she is in a modern fairytale.
PRODUCTION / POST-PRODUCTION
