Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

I'm a storyteller, that's what I do. For me, photography means experiencing the moment without actually being a part of it. Life is all about the little things, the beauty of the moment, the things that connect us. And that is what I record in an honest, unadulterated way and with an eye for detail.

Connection, emotion, in the moment, unconventional and full of passion. Photography is about people and every story is worth telling. I am a storyteller, a photographer of life. May I join in your adventure?

welcome

It felt right straight away, from the first meeting in Mariahout. A sincere, creative, passionate woman who doesn't just take photos, but records emotions. After an enjoyable photo shoot on the canals of Amsterdam, and the fantastic results, we were sold. Once we arrived in Volterra, Elke was really a part of our wedding. She clearly has a lot of experience: she adapts easily to the company and is fun to work with. Elke is able to record the emotional, funny moments, whether big or small. Sometimes directed but often spontaneous, because according to Elke, that's how you get the best pictures. Afterwards, the photos were quickly processed and delivered in person in a beautiful high-quality book. That's also typical Elke. In Elke, we got to know a fantastic, reliable and personal photographer. Not just for our wedding, but for all the ordinary and extraordinary moments there will be. Dear Elke, thank you for everything.

We stumbled upon your website by accident, but we're so glad we found you! From the moment we met, there was a real click and when we also saw your work, we didn't need to look further. During the second meeting, at our home, you immediately had all sorts of ideas and tips for how you could record the day the right way for us.
Our instinct about you was proved absolutely right on our special day. It was great that you were there so early; it meant you became a part of the whole thing. Throughout the day, you fitted in perfectly with our company and were able to record all the important moments, big and small, fantastically! The result was beautiful photos of important details and emotional moments. Our bridesmaids were a bit in love with you too! In short, we are incredibly happy that you were our photographer! You not only take fantastic photos, you're just a really nice person too! You contributed to wonderful memories of our day and we would recommend you to everyone!
