Elena Zemlyanskaya Photography

Capturing genuine emotionally alive moments


Hi there!

My name is Elena and I am a professional photographer based in Amsterdam. I work with event organisers, dance groups, lifestyle brands and families.

I love to document what is happening in an honest authentic way, capturing moments that breathe life and unexpectedness. When working with a family or a model I play with them to bring up their true emotions and show their internal world.

Creating a warm atmosphere and exciting experience for the team I work with is no less important for me than the final result.

Contact me to see how I can help.

Elena is a very creative mind and is suggesting proactively great innovative ideas grounded in business needs, Hence, she is a perfect partner not just simply a supplier: honest, hardworking, extremely well organized and creative. Could I ask for more?

Elena is a wonderful photographer! As a founder of Amsterdam Business Breakfast and business owner of Marketing services, I wanted a photographer who could take the right pictures at the right time and to really capture the story behind the brand. Elena manages to do that and much more! She’s always positive and an absolute pleasure to work with! I’m very happy to have her as our house photographer!

I met Alyona at her event “coffee & cafe” in March 2018. Eventually after having 5 projects together in 3 months behind our backs makes me state - what a pleasure to find such a professional and utterly committed person not to his work, but to his practice. A creative mind that is hungry for new faces, opportunities, approaches, someone who is ready to take risks and enforce you to take it as well at the same time turning the whole process into a safe playground. Alyona is very sensible photographer means each model that I saw in her work - flourishes on pictures. The Best result comes when you clearly understand how to lead it and when you have a vision of what should be put in between - this is exactly what Alyona masters. You should try this journey with her
