Elayne Woods Photography » Lincoln Wedding Photographer

  • Welcome to Elayne Woods Photography

    I am based out of Lincoln, Nebraska. My approach to photography is about emotion and real life. I am more than just a portrait or wedding photographer. You hire me to document your life. I don’t just strive for perfectly posed photographs. I take honest and genuine photos for you. I want to photograph you interacting with your loved ones and embracing life as it is in all of its loveliness and beautiful imperfection. This is what you will want to remember one day.

    Whether you are hiring me for you wedding day, or to document a day-in-the-life of your family, I will work very hard to make sure you have unique, creative photos to last a lifetime.

I met Chelsie and Dustin a couple years ago, before they were engaged, for a session.  These high school sweethearts were the sweetest couple then, so I was so excited when I heard they had gotten engaged and wanted me to be their wedding photographer!  We met at their grandparent’s house in Fairbury and I got a personal tour of the land from Chelsie’s grandpa and he even helped me by being my reflector holder during the session.  Chelsie and Dustin even brought their horses along for the shoot!!  I’m super excited to be a part of their wedding this coming October!

Brent and Melisa are the most perfect and adorable couple, ever!  It was so much fun to walk around Memorial Stadium taking photos and to see their name and wedding date up on the scoreboard.  After traipsing around the stadium (and even the locker room, which was AWESOME!) we hit up their favorite bar downtown and then drove around the country side scouting out the perfect location and lighting and pushed the shoot until we lost the light of the day.

  It was just so awesome to see how attentive Brent was of Melisa the entire time and how she obviously adored her big, bulky football player.   Brent and Melisa are going to have a busy and exciting year before their wedding as Brent (who was formally an Offensive Lineman for the Nebraska Cornhuskers) signed a free agent deal with the New York Jets.

 Help me congratulate Brent and Melisa on their engagement and I CAN’T WAIT to photograph their wedding next July!!

I met Lauren one afternoon at The Coffee House in Lincoln to discuss her wedding.  Seeing that we had the same purse, I knew that Lauren and I would get along great because we obviously have the same great taste.  :)   Alexander who is a member of the Air Force, was stationed over-seas at the time, so I was only able to meet with Lauren that day, but seeing how cool and awesome she was, I knew that they were going to be a blast to work with. . . and I was right!

We did Alexander and Lauren’s engagement shoot in Beatrice, Nebraska where Lauren was raised.  This couple was so loving and fun and happy together (even with a Nebraska/Iowa rivalry going on) that they just looked natural and gorgeous in front of my camera.  Please give Alexander and Lauren the best of wishes on their engagement and their upcoming June wedding!  It’s going to be a lovely marriage!
