Hi, I am Elayners.

Welcome to my little slice of the internet and thanks for checking it out!

As far back as I can recall, photography has always been a passion of mine. From trying to capture those beautiful sunsets or precious moments between family and friends, my heart bursts into joy when I hear the aperture opening and shutting. I just know when it snaps shut, I’m capturing memories that will last a lifetime with my clients.

The first time I picked up a camera was almost 15 years ago. Since then, I have continued pursuing my passion! I studied at the University of Texas at San Antonio and I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts with a focus in Photography. I am not native born to Alaska, but lived all my youth and now adult years in Anchorage. Alaska is home!

Each session is a journey I enjoy being a part of with my clients. As your photographer I strive to create a fun, relaxed and— most important— natural atmosphere for you and your loved ones. It is in this setting in which I’m encouraged to capture true feelings and emotions. Making memories out of moments is the investment I give to you.

Thank you for considering Elayners Photography!

Please note that different types of sessions include different items. 

If you have any questions please email me and I would love to take a few minutes to discuss the best options for you.
