I am so glad that you are here! I am 26 and born and raised in Montana! I am married to my soulmate and together we have 2 gorgeous little girls and a spunky little toy aussie named Oliver. I am a fun easy going and down to earth person with a heart of gold. The mountains have my heart and I live for adventure and everything outdoors. I love Jesus, a good cup of coffee, and exploring new places! I am always down to connect and chat, so lets grab some coffee and connect soon!
I found my passion for photography the year before I graduated highschool. My cousin is an incredible photographer and she came to Montana with her family to visit. She did a little shoot for me.... and that was it! I was hooked! I worked hard that Summer to buy my first camera. After a few years pursuing, learning and growing, I found that I truly love telling the love story between down to earth couples who are madly in love. ( I am a sucker for all the pretty little details) There is something so special about a love story. I love feeling the connection in the images, and I know that is what you will treasure the most.
There are so many things leading to doing what I do, but to put it simply:I believe in raw and real love stories, I believe in couples, and I believe in all moments big or small. My heart is filled by the couples I meet, the stories I get to be a part of, and the treasured friendships I make while being a photographer. Life is about all the little moments. Moments I want you and generations after to look back and hold close. ANNDDD It is pretty awesome to be able to explore God's creation and all the majestic places!

I want to create with you, genuine and authentic memories that you will have to hold on to and remember for a lifetime. I will help you with everything along the way!
"Elsa, your gorgeous photos speak for themselves. What I want people to know is the strength of your character. Kendra and I didn’t know you at the time. We booked you based on the style of your images as well as the fun personality we met after that first cup of coffee together. We knew our photographer would need to be with us and our wedding party for the entire day, so we needed to find someone who would mesh well with our whacky bunch! Elsa, you fit right in, just like you’d always been one of our crew! It made our day incredibly enjoyable and exciting rather than structured and stale. Everyone loved you! Kendra and I are blessed to have found you and built a friendship with you. Folks you will get so much more than just stunning pictures with Elsa Eileen!!!"
"Elsa truly made my wedding day dreams come true. She is the sweetest most fabulous ray of sunshine and did everything in her power to make every one of my wishes become a reality. From the first moment I saw her photos I knew she was my gal! She created the best environment for me at a second shoot we did and also at my wedding. No stress what so ever and she had my back even though I wasn’t the most prepared bride! She returned our photos back so quick and literally took so many pictures, it’s like a play by play of our day!! I cannot thank you enough from the bottom of my heart!! I love you Elsa!! I highly highly recommend everyone to use her!! Elsa will make your dreams come true!!"
"Elsa knocked our wedding photos right out of the park!! She knew exactly what we were looking for and delivered exactly that. She has such a sweet personality and made it so easy for us to feel comfortable and have fun during our shoot. Elsa is definitely in her element capturing sweet moments out in nature, no matter the weather. It's plain to see that she has an incredible amount of creativity and goes above and beyond to get the perfect shot. My husband and I are over the moon about our experience with Elsa and would recommend her again and again."
