HELLO there.png


I'm LaNae, Founder and Lead Photographer of Elle Martinez  - Photography. My husband, J. Luis and I are based in Columbus, OH and we're full of wanderlust, we crave adventure, we value connection and we continuously pursue new experiences - we are available to travel!

I've told my husband J. Luis, that I never tire of hearing the bride and groom say:  "To love and to cherish, to deeply respect."  These words provide a beautiful description of the essence of what marriage is,  a bond built on love and respect. Once a couple has decided to join lives in love, they've fully committed. Commitment is beautiful, loyalty is a treasure, and they deserve to be celebrated and documented.  

 When I pick up my camera my aim is to celebrate - life, love and loyalty; because of this, our wedding day coverage focuses on emotional  connection and meaningful moments.

I've also been known to enjoy a weekend road trip, an occasional cozy afternoon nap, sharing a hot cup of cocoa with J. Luis as we watch Netflix, and having a few friends over to try out new recipes.
