Hi, I’m Lena and I’m thrilled you found me!
I’m a visual storyteller. If I had to describe my style, I’d say - candid, modern, ethereal, poetic. My heart sings when I get to capture the serendipity of light, colors, people, details - all lining up for that fleeting, magical moment, that will be forever kept and treasured in a form of a photograph.
Born in Lithuania, I spent my childhood years in Sweden - that had a major influence on my creative vision - I praise simplicity and minimalism in my surroundings and translate in to my work.
After getting a Bachelors degree in Moving Image from the prestigious University of Arts in London in 2009, I travelled the world, worked and lived in places like Oslo, Hong Kong and London, before settling on a tiny tropical island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, aka Key West.
I got into the wedding industry because of my super talented other half - filmmaker and screenwriter Quincy Perkins - who I’ve met here on the island and who’s been creating auteur wedding films among full-feature films, documentaries and commercials. He taught me a lot about cinematic lighting and creative narrative, which I later applied to my photography.
When I’m not working, my world revolves around my daughter and my husband and I enjoy simple pleasures in life - cooking, reading, films, gardening. My biggest passion is traveling to remote destinations and experiencing different cultures. I’m very fortunate to be doing that as a part of my job. I get inspired from love stories, nature, art, raw emotions and I cry at every wedding.
As your wedding photos will have a value way beyond your investment for years to come, it’s crucial for me to get to know you and find out what’s really important for you on your wedding day. If you feel a connection to my work and you want me to tell your story - please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
