Pleasure to meet you
I’m Lena. I’m one of those rare human beings who believes wholeheartedly and unashamedly in love. I’m talking about that peculiar and marvellous kind of love. That right-place-right-time, happily-ever-after, meant-to-be kind of love. The kind that you grasp with both hands and never let go of. I believe that marriage is a very beautiful expression of love, not just between the couple who is getting married, but also celebrated with their family and friends. I absolutely love getting to know our amazing couples and capturing their unique love stories. I feel incredibly lucky to be living my dream life. Let’s work together to capture your precious memories!
While growing up I was that artistic kid (you know the one, there’s always one!) who won art competitions and had my work displayed on the classroom walls, but my parents pursuaded me to go to university and get a degree. I had no idea what I wanted to do, all I knew was that I really enjoyed helping people. So I studied the closest thing to visual art that I could find, and I obtained a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and a Master of Architecture from the University of Melbourne.
Then in 2010 on one fateful day I photographed my first wedding and I discovered my calling in life. At the time I was working as an Architect in a 9 to 5 office job and I knew I needed to do more with my life than just designing static spaces, I craved working with people and expressing love and positivity to those around me. I started photographing weddings on the weekend because I loved meeting new people and photographing pretty things, it brought me so much joy! Every couple came back to tell me how much they loved my photos and they were so glad I was their photographer, and my heart brimmed with satisfaction, confirming to me that wedding photography is indeed my life’s purpose.
In early 2015 I lost a very dear friend, and I knew that from that point on, life would never be the same again. After weeks of searching, I learnt an important lesson, that our present life is finite and incredibly precious. I decided I would live with passion, purpose and fearlessness. I quit my day job, scared but excited and extremely sure, that whatever the future may hold, I would live it with no regrets, ever.
My mission is to bless every couple with a beautiful, positive, uplifting experience and leave them with wonderful memories encapsulated as treasured photographs, so they can relive those memories over and over again for generations to come.
