Hi there! My name is Elena Sippel, and I am the photographer behind the lens of all the pictures you see here. I am based out of Santa Fe, New Mexico, but I bounce around the east coast sometimes, too. Who knows, pretty soon I might be near you!
about me: I am an adventurer. I travel, I hike, I run, I read, I practice yoga, I whistle songs, I cook good food and love my french press. I stand behind the camera but I also sit behind the desk and work in the (actual) darkroom to turn my special moments and ideas into tangible photographs for all to see.
about my business: I do it all. I started photographing with a tiny point and shoot camera as a middle schooler and by high school I had graduated to using a big canon DSLR. In college I got a taste a taste of the darkroom and developed a deep love for alternative processing and film photography. Although I am mainly an event and portrait photographer, I’ve got a degree in fine art that transforms everything that I see and thus the product that you receive. In my business, I offer both digital and analog services. As much as I love photographic process, I especially love being there with you to capture special moments, promote your business or advance your career.
Although I love studio work and love to “create” a scene, I am not the kind of photographer with a long list of poses for you to strike. I am interested in candid shots and capturing what is raw and real; I am interested in you. Whether I’m photographing you’re engagement, your toddler, or your latest musical venture, I’ll bring to light everything that you want as well as everything that you already are.
Please, if I’ve sparked your interest, send me an email here!
