About me

If you are on this page right now, chances are, you probably want to get to know a little more about me. So, here we go!
It all started with my passion for the Arts. Since then, I’ve been exploring as many areas as possible – all somehow related to Beauty. Why? Because I believe Beauty will save the world.

I was born in the North of Italy, but I only found my Place when I moved to Rome, the city that I was lucky enough to call my home for almost 10 years.

A big piece of my heart is still there, but I believe I became an adult only when I landed in Ireland, where I am based now.

I am a passionate woman and I keep exploring new fields. In the last 15 years I’ve studied Art History, Photography, Graphic Design, Photo Editing, Web Design, Digital Marketing, Event Management and I’ve recently started to look into Video Editing…

Am I confused? No, I’m not! The definition of “multipotentialite” really resounded to me when I first discovered it!
Thank you, Emilie Wapnick!

And if you are wondering what being an event manager has to do with it, well… there’s very little beauty in a chaotic event!

Now it’s your turn!
Tell me about you and how I can help your business thrive!

Elena,
Can I just say that edit was PERFECT!! That gallery and that light was TOUGH and you did such an amazing job. I could never have edited it so flawlessly or consistently. You have been the greatest thing I’ve done for my business and my sanity. During this extremely busy month, your work has made such a difference. I have another few weddings to cull and send you before I have a few weeks holiday, which I wouldn’t be getting if it wasn’t for your editing.
Thank you so much again. It really means the world!

Elena has provided me with an excellent photo editing & culling service over the last 18 months. She is reliable, professional and extremely hard working. She delivers galleries which are consistent with my editing style and always within the timeframe she had stated. I have no problem in recommending her services to my photography Colleagues. She has been and will continue to be an invaluable service that I will avail of.

Director, Mother Tongues

Elena was the last person to join us in August 2017 and she has since managed to catch up, meaning that in 4 months she has put into Mother Tongues more work than the rest of us collectively put into it in 12 months. Elena is the person behind our websites, blog, videos, logos, nice images, our FundIt campaign, our Festival, our flyers… and she keeps smiling! She is truly fantastic, and I don’t know what we would do without her.

Having Elena available to help with my editing has always provided me great peace of mind, especially when I am under real pressure during the busy season.
Having initially run through my editing style together, she just seems to get it. I am always happy with her work, and usually it requires little or no further adjustment upon receipt.
Her great value and quick turnaround is also a real advantage. I would highly recommend Elena to wedding photographers – she will not let you down!

I worked with Elena on an Irish-language and culture project called Cultúr Club in the summer of 2018. Together, we created three workbooks for children(…)
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Elena and I can honestly say that without her, the Cultúr Club worksheets would never have made it to the printers on time. Despite the pressures involved, her attention to detail was unstinting and she was exceptionally generous with both her time and her patience.
She went above and beyond all my expectations, was exceedingly flexible and easy to work with, and I am delighted with the resulting workbooks we produced. I hope to get the chance to collaborate with Elena again soon, and would recommend her unreservedly to anyone looking for a designer of fun, interesting, and simply gorgeous educational materials.

Elena has been editing my weddings since 2017 and I’ve always trusted her consistent level of professionalism. 
Time is precious for me and I don’t like having to request changes, I need it done right and I’ve never had to ask for changes with Elena.  
She delivers a high quality of work and goes above and beyond previous editors I have tried. Quick turnaround times too !! Highly recommended

Project Coordinator,
Mi-WOW

My name is Sandra Ruiz; I am the Project Coordinator of Mi-WOW (New Communities Partnership). I  worked with Elena in the designing of logo, leaflets, booklets and other materials of the Mi-WOW project.

The results were fantastic, unique and innovative.

Her work was extremely efficient and based on the agreement. She was in permanent communication with us to clarify any details, and she handled all the materials before any deadlines.
I could not recommend her service highly enough!

I couldn’t recommend Elena highly enough as a photographer. Elena is extremely professional, she understood perfectly what I was looking for and went above and beyond to meet my requirements. She created a very relaxed and fun atmosphere and she was extremely easy to work with. The end result was absolutely beautiful photos for my personal brand which I love! Thank you so much!

Elena, I want to reiterate that I really appreciate your work and love it when I see your sense of humour in the photos you choose, it fills me with confidence that you keep the photos that are funny in my head when I take them but some people will just pass over!

Elena is hard working, punctual and real pleasure to work with. She is self-motivated and gets the work done to a high standard. I would be lost without her. Can’t recommend her highly enough.

Adrian Connolly

Everyone at our studio simply adores Elena and she is a most valued member of our team now for many years. 
A consummate & reliable professional, deadlines are consistently met on or ahead of schedule and the work is always perfection.
At the outset, Elena worked very closely with our chief editor in order to replicate our studio’s style of post-production exactly.

Elena, we are so happy that you reached out to us years ago and we look forward to our valued collaboration for many years into the future. 
Although this testimonial highly recommends your services… We don’t really want to share you with anyone else!
With love from all your colleagues here at the studios in Mayo and Galway.

We engaged Elena to design our company logo for our website, business cards etc and are delighted with the results.  Elena was a pleasure to work with and was very patient as we explored many options before finally settling on our design; we will most definitely engage Elena for future illustrative/graphic/photographic work and would highly recommend her to our business associates and friends. Thank you Elena
