I'm Ezlan

Hello

THEY/THEM

I was just sixteen years old when I realized I wanted to join my best friends in Kenya for documentation of the local water resources. I raised all this money doing portrait sessions for my fellow seniors and their families. I would go on to attend a Maasai wedding, witness Kenya's first constitutional vote, and found myself in middle of the Great Migration of wildebeests in the Maasai Mara. This experience kickstarted a long career of taking on what others might call high stress gigs.

Nowadays, I've found myself nestled in between Chicago and the West Coast photographing weddings. I'm passionate about curating ideal coverage, I rather enjoy witnessing joy and love in my life. I've transformed my passion for photographing pure emotions into a luxury wedding experience

My roots in photography go back generations. Starting with my great Uncle and ending with me. 

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

My travels

THIRTY YEARS YOUNG

I'm a Gemini Sun and Moon. Pisces Rising. My age reflects how long I've lived but not how wise I am. I have a lot of life experience. I'm doubling it soon by leaving state to start anew in Sacramento.

I've traveled to almost every part of this country outside of Hawaii or Alaska. My goal is to photograph a wedding in these places.

My core values

I'm not here to blow smoke, you really are unique. All my clients are. I'm not here to treat you all "the same" so much as here to recognize all the parts of yourself that you want seen. Heck, sometimes I'll even help folks find some words for who they are and how they feel. It's about connection for me. I am creating artwork representing an important day. If you don't feel comforted and seen, I'm not doing my best job. 

COMFORT

1.
NO.

I'm someone who sees the little things happening in the background of your day. Things you might not notice otherwise, staging some items for that luxury catalog feel and leaving other parts for a more natural capture. Whether it's your watch and rings or your dresses all lines up, I'll get those details or my team will. Nothing goes undocumented when we're on the location.

DETAIL FOCUSED

2.
NO.

Lean into the intimacy and feel those emotions around our team. We are versed in the emotional coaster it can be on any given day. We love to see real tears, smiles, and laughter.  I'll be there to guide you through moments to invoke these emotions.

EMBRACE EMOTIONS

3.
NO.
