"I recently did a professional photoshoot with Elyse’ Jokinen for my Health Coaching Business.

Working with Elyse’ was an absolute joy! Her positivity and light-hearted energy puts you at ease and makes the experience so much fun. Her photographs are clean and natural capturing the essence of real life and its imperfect beauty.
Her suggestions take a photoshoot from a staged look to an in the moment, down to earth masterpiece! Her work comes straight from the heart and pours through in both your interactions with her and the final product of your GORGEOUS photos. 

Elyse' has the gifted eye and is the perfect fit if you're looking for photos full of creativity, inspiration and love. The experience and final product was more that I’d dreamed of! I have beautiful photos that I cannot wait to share with the world and I could never thank her enough!"

"Pictures are an essential component of my website and a great way to document the retreats and yoga teacher training programs that I lead, yet I hate posing for the camera. 

I have worked with knowledgeable and professional photographers in the past, and I am grateful for the amazing photos they have produced.  Of course, my favorite ones are of the landscapes and participants! 

When Elyse contacted me about coming into the yoga studio and taking in-vivo pictures while being a “fly-on-the-wall”, promising that nobody in the class would have to pose, I was really excited!  The results of this session were breathtaking!  She captured the authentic personalities of people she had never met, along with the essence of yoga, our training sessions and the connection we have with one another. 

Her experience with yoga was evident in the way she portrayed the details of alignment within yoga postures and adjustments, and her photographic eye was evident in the unique perspectives of each photo.  She is kind, calm and easy to work with.  I highly recommend hiring Elyse to capture memories that you want to remember and cherish!"

Elyse captured the most beautiful photos of our family. She was wonderful to work with and allowed us to just be ourselves while she shot away. The candids she captured were incredible! She was quick to process the photos and had our album to us in just a couple of days. She's definitely my go-to photographer from now on!

Thank you so much for the beautiful photographs, Elyse. We had such a fun time with you on our photo shoot, that it didn't even seem like a photo shoot! It felt so effortless and fun, and the results are exactly what we were looking for.
We'll definitely be contacting you to schedule something for next year! You're a gem! =)
