Hiya. It's me, elisa!
That’s Lisa, with an ‘E’ at the front, rather than Eliza, Alicia, Elise or Elsa: while those are all nice names, they’re just not mine.
I'm an alternative photographer based in East Sussex and Kent.
What on earth is an 'alternative wedding photographer!?'
Well, thanks for asking. It just means that I stay away from the traditional type of wedding photography, you know the kind, where everyone stands rigid in a line, giving their best fake smile.
What's my story?
Good question! So, without sounding too much like this is an interview, my love of photography grew from my love of films. I friggin’ love films: mainly indie dramas/coming of age films that are often far too depressing. I have had a fascination with movie making from a young age and I was supposed to be the next Hollywood megastar director, until I went to Uni and my passion for it was completely destroyed!
Then I fell in love with photography... and a man! Then that man asked me to marry him and I discovered I loved weddings. So I merged the two together, weddings and photography I mean, and boom an Elisaphoto wedding photography baby was born!
I like to take natural, candid photos with a creative edge. I know it can be a little, if not a lot, awks in front of a camera so I like to add in a smoke bomb, or a bunch of balloons, or a confetti canon to distract you from Brian and Elvis (my cameras).
THEN WHAT HAPPENED?
CAN i know more?
You sure can! If you'd like to know more about what it's like to hang out with me and my mates (my cameras again) click here for my blog post. In the mean time here's a few things I'm keen on:
dry, sarcastic jokes
So that’s me in a nutshell – well if I was ever in an actual nutshell I’d most likely be more panicked and claustrophobic but we’ll leave that there shall we.
