Hi! I’m Lianna, the girl with the camera. I named my company "Elle" for my nickname and "Lily" because it's one of my favorite flowers — no wild story behind the name!
5 THINGS ABOUT ME
I’m from Toronto, Canada. I moved to California for the endless sunshine.
I’m a crazy dog lady. I have a Dorkie (Dachshund/Yorkie mix) named Oliver. I take a “test” photo of him before every session and wedding, so if I’ve ever taken your photo, there’s also a photo of Oliver in your folder!
My favorite musical artists are Circa Survive, La Dispute, Lana Del Rey and Britney Spears. My taste is a little eclectic. I also have tattoos for Circa Survive... and for Britney... no regrets. I’ve watched every episode of The Sopranos and Breaking Bad more times than I can count, they’re my go-to binge watch shows while I edit.
I just got married! Best day of my life. My bouquet was so big + extra my arm hurt for over a week from holding it. WORTH. IT.
It’s always a good time for champagne and tacos. Fact.
My photography style is candid and natural with an emphasis on capturing authentic, natural and emotional moments. My posing style is romantic and classic, yet still fun and playful to get real smiles, laughter, hugs, and kisses out of the new married couple. I believe it’s so important to find a balance between the candid nature of love and wedding photography (aka, the Instagram worthy shots!) and the traditional photos that will be framed in your home, and your future family’s homes for generations to come. I also adore capturing the moments you may not have witnessed, like your guests mingling and meeting each other for the first time, that moment your mother wiped away her tears when you put your gown on, your soon-to-be husband getting into his tux (or holding back tears reading your love letter!) … seriously, weddings are the best! I’m licensed + insured and have photographed countless weddings + engagement sessions over the years and LOVE what I do!
I respond to each email personally and always try to reply within a few hours or less. Let’s talk about your wedding or session, send me an email here!
I’m so honored and humbled by every person who has chosen me to document their lives.
"Lianna is the most amazing photographer and the sweetest person. She photographed our wedding in Temecula this past May and we could not have imagined our big day with any other photographer. She captured the best moments and made sure we looked great the whole time". See more reviews...
