Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Pamela, chai latte lover, nature buff, photographer & owner of Ela Studios.
Back in 2008 I was an 18 year old medicine Uni drop out with nothing but a kit lens & camera body I won on an eBay auction, a bucketload of enthusiasm & a dream to become a wedding photographer. (Oh, and a pink Sony Vaio laptop I thought was the coolest things at the time - haha)
Over a decade later and hundreds of love stories I've been entrusted to capture, still as passionate as ever, I'm living that very dream. *high fives*
Our couples really are the epitome of Beautiful, inside & out.
They're fun, family oriented, they make a great team, they're uber sweet towards each other & their wedding day is a celebration of their Love story with the people they love.
... If that's you, I gotchu boo!
When I'm not inhaling portions of wedding cake at reception, you’ll find me unplugged near the ocean at a
cafe somewhere reading, listening to old school R&B or laughing at something (mostly myself).
People close to me know me for my clumsiness & blonde moments. I once thought ‘quitting cold turkey’ meant you needed to eat frozen poultry to rid cigarette cravings. F'real.
I’m Italian, Spanish & Filipino. So my perfectionism, Love-O nature & sick work ethic translates through everything I do. Lol.
I also make a mean lasagne, dance is my natural state & I was totally born with a karaoke mic in my hand.
But legit, donuts are my favourite thing in the world. If you ever wanna get my attention, just wave about a donut and ima come runnning. Also, I think coffee is overrated. There I said it!
Family & Faith is the foundation of everything in my life & when you have that kinda Love, you have it all.
So often I'm asked by guests at reception if I knew the couple personally beforehand because of how easily we all get along on the day with their bridal party & guests - like family ;)
I believe all weddings need to be captured with an all-in-Passion across the board, from the candid in-between moments throughout the day, to the beautiful signature shots you hang on the wall ... with everything in between.
If you'd like to chat more about how we can help capture your unique love story - I'd love to hear from you!
