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 take honest and genuine photos and I love to document your life with an unscripted point of view. I want to photograph you keeping it real; 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 in your forever.

Sometimes I take that photo of one of my own children, and it makes my heart get all fluttery and sentimental.  Tonight after I picked my boys up from their dad’s house, they were playing outside on our hill and the lighting was as perfect as their hearts.  I went inside and grabbed my camera and got back out just in time to watch my middle son fly down the hill on his bike.  My favorite poet, Shel Silverstein, never fails me.  He always knows the exact words that I could never come up with to describe exactly as my heart feels.  Meet Leo, age 7.

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!!
