About Elena

Welcome to Modern Love- A new intimate portrait and boudoir photography studio located in the heart of Chicago.  My goal is simple- to make you feel like a rockstar. (Did you catch the David Bowie reference here?)

I was trained as a fine art photographer at the School of the Art Insitute of Chicago. I found my passion telling the stories of hundreds of couples and families through wedding photography. Documenting love over the last decade has been a dream job.  Along the way I've connected with so many inspiring women, and Modern Love Studio seemed like the next logical step in my creative journey. 

While I love wedding days, always a mile a minute, I started this new venture to slow down and craft something a little different for my clients.

Modern love, for me, is a love for oneself. And it is amazing working one on one with my subjects. My clients are fearless, strong, beautiful women, and it is my honor to photograph the unique power that they each possess. Is it time to put yourself in the spotlight? 

With my expertise, a great playlist, and a bit of humor, I guide my clients through every step of our photo shoot. We always share a few laughs, and sometimes a little wine. 

How do you want to be seen?

Let's create something together!
