Named "one of the best wedding photographers in the world" by Vogue Magazine and Harper’s Bazaar, Elizabeth Messina is brilliant at capturing the essence of her subject's personality, highlighting their beauty in a compelling and powerful way. Best know for her luminous, natural light photographs, intimate portraiture of women and lush fashion work, Elizabeth's images have graced the covers and pages of countless magazines and publications.

Her first book, The Luminous Portrait, offers intimate insights into Elizabeth's creative process and approach to making portraits that are "lit from within." Her second book, Adorments, captures the beauty of the handmade flower designs created by Myra Callan, of Twigs & Honey. Elizabeth's third and most recent book is The Silver Lining, a collaboration with her close friend, Hollye Jacobs, a supportive, inspirational, and visually beautiful resource for anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer.

Having worked in the photography industry for over 20 years, traveled all around the world, collaborated with some of the most talented creatives, Elizabeth finds herself most inspired and happy in the presence of those she loves. When she's not making photographs you’ll find her at home in Southern California with her loving husband, three children and two dogs, enjoying a walk in the park or at the beach.
