Passionate & Driven NYC Award Winning Wedding & Mitzvah Documentary Style Photographer serving the Metro, Tri State Area and Beyond

I am passionate about photography and I love what I do. Having you love your photos is what fuels me and drives me to capture the emotions and details of your day. I want you to be thrilled and to be able to relive the experience and share it with others.

People often tell me they feel comfortable with me so they can be themselves which helps us achieve a more candid natural journalistic approach.

I will spend hours editing the details and performing artistic touches, to ensure that you’re thrilled with all of your photos! 

I am excited that three of my photos won The International Wedding contest by Wedaward!

Wedding and Bar/Bat Mitzvah packages range from $2999 - $6000. 

Pricing usually depends on hours, adding a second photographer, albums and having a videographer. All packages include 40+ hours of editing, and performing artistic touches to make your photos look beautiful.

    Comments: The consummate professional, Elana demonstrates all the technical capacities one could want in a photographer. But she is so much more. A patient observer, she took time to watch my family interact before deciding how to capture us on film. Adaptive, she worked with us in multiple settings until we were all comfortable that the scenery helped to tell our story. Elana’s a gem. Her work exudes personality and vitality. Tell your friends. But be sure to make your booking first. You want to make sure she has room for you before the secret gets out.

    Comments: Elana is great at capturing a person's energy with her camera. Her photographs breathe life and vitality. To me, Elana's strongest point is capturing people in action: she has a talent to choosing and catching just that special instant. Her choices are always surprising, she makes the ordinary interesting and touching. Elana has taken great pictures during events at my daughter's school. We had her taking pictures of the three of us in Central Park and we are very happy with those- as well as our family. I would surely recommend Elana as your photographer, she is very professional and a very pleasant person to work with.

    Comments: Elana took family photos of us and we were thrilled with the pictures. She has a wonderful eye and frames the photos so nicely and is terrific to work with. Our photos were taken in Central Park and she captured the beautiful light in the park as well. We highly recommend Elana. Gregg M.

    Comments: Elana is definitely the most fun, gifted, and sweet photographer that I have had the pleasure of being with! I did my senior pictures with her, she really went out of her way to make time for me (I only called her a day in advance on a short trip to NY) and she traveled all around NYC with me to get the perfect city feel to my pictures. She is so patient and honest, and I can’t wait to come back to NYC just to do another shoot with her! The photos all turned out so beautifully and clearly, I couldn't have asked for better ones. She knows all the right angles, lighting, and every photo turned out as if it was a piece of art! They really show off who I am and capture me and my personality. I am so excited to use them for my senior pictures, and for anyone looking for a photographer in NY, go right to Elana!

    Comments: 50 only comes once in a lifetime and I wanted to celebrate myself! I also wanted to give gratitude to all my friends who have cared and supported me on my journey. So, I threw myself a party! The night needed to be captured via pictures. I desired a photographer that would "disappear" in the celebration, make my guests feel comfortable so that the images were authentic and organic and had insight and used intuition to capture those obscure, intimate, special moments. Well, that photographers name is Elana Goodridge! The birthday may be history but I have photographs to reminisce on a night celebrating gratitude and love!

    Comments: We’re so lucky to have found Elana to photograph our special day! And we have the pictures that will last a life time to prove it!! Elana was a wonderfully calm presence during all of our wedding stress and made us feel comfortable both with her and the camera. It was so nice to know she had it all under control and we had nothing to worry about. Elana is professional, passionate, and shows that she genuinely cares about you and making sure you’re able to have the best memories of your special day. She was great with suggesting some poses to try and we love the iconic New York feel of our shots in Grand Central Station. The photo's captured every moment and truly reflect how we felt that day. They are absolutely gorgeous!

    Comments: I have run an events company for over 20 years working with major corporate clients as well as many private events. My number one photographer that I use is Elana Goodridge. She is an extremely talented photographer not only with formal portraits but has an uncanny ability to get terrific candid shots. Time and again, my clients have raved about her pictures and constantly request her. She is also great to work with as she is calm, easy going and wants to know what the client wants before she puts her creativity to work. I even used her for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah so what better recommendation can you get than that! I highly recommend her for any type of event. - Sasha N.

    Comments: This is the second Bar Mitzvah that Elana has photographed for us and I wanted to comment on her amazing ability to capture the essence of the day in such an honest and open way. Her photographs are spontaneous, fresh and candid. We absolutely loved the photos she took and are so happy to share the photos with our friends and family. With the day now over, we are able to continue to relive our special day and enjoy the wonderful photos Elana took for us. We would highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional photographer who is also a joy to work with. I look forward to other occasions when I can work with Elana. –Maura

    Comments: We used Elana for our kids b-day party and she was fantastic. I don't know how she does it, but she managed to get amazing photographs while not being intrusive at all (I honestly don't even remember her taking the photographs because she was so unobtrusive). She also was conscious to get good shots of ALL the kids that came to the party which was not easy because there were lots of kids there and it was kind of chaotic. Taking photographs of children is not easy work, but Elana makes it seem effortless from start to finish. All of our guests raved about the pictures. Can't recommend her highly enough!

    Comments: We used Elana's services for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah. Elana was everything one could ask for. Warm, talented & above all professional. It was a pleasure to work with her, as she made it easy every step of the way, and the proof was in the results. Photographs were great in every respect-both portraits and candids, and no one even noticed that a professional photographer was at the affair. Thank you Elana- you are the best! - OC

    Comments: Elana is a truly gifted photographer. She not only catches the extraordinary moments, but the moments that often go unnoticed, the in between moments-- the moments that turn life into art. A true professional who displays passion, dedication and a vested personal interest in any project she undertakes.. I have used her for both publicity shots, work events, and family photos. She is a joy to work with and her pictures are always gorgeous. I can not recommend her more highly. Dawn Lerman - Author, Blogger, Chef, Mom

    Comments: Elana has been photographing my children since we first met five years ago and has captured my girls at many different times in their lives While she takes amazing posed shots, her true talent shines when taking candids. She captures the innocence and pure enjoyment that comes along with being a child. In this age of selfies and very posed photographs via cell phones, I love getting photographs of my children with real and honest emotions in their faces - whether they are smiling, laughing, engaged or concentrating, it is through Elana's photos that I have a printed memory of some of my children's best moments! And these memories will be cherished forever! - Pamela, 2015

    Comments: Elana photographed our organization's annual tribute event at the Park Avenue Synagogue in the fall of 2014. She was incredibly professional and a pleasure to work with. She really went the extra mile to make sure we received everything we needed. We're lucky to have found her! Now we will have memories to last a lifetime. Stephanie C

    Comments: Elana's photographs are breathtaking. She captures the emotion of the human spirit in a gesture, a facial expression, the tilt of a head, a shadow on a wall, a beam of light and her beautiful compositions. She is also a delight to work with and a dynamo of energy and ideas. We laughed through our whole shoot! Kathy Leichter, Documentary Film Producer and Director

    Comments: My twins just had their B'nai Mitzvah this summer and Elana was our photographer. The photos captured the joy and depth of the event beautifully. I am thrilled to have wonderful photos of my 95-year-old mom, as well as the light, bright photos of the many kids that attended. I love that some of the shots of my son and daughter on the bima are in black and white also. Elana's eye and execution are wonderful and I feel blessed to have so many concrete memories! – Judy A.

    Comments: Hi, Elana, Just wanted to thank you for your time and attention....the family portraits you captured of our family are wonderful! I loved that you were cognizant of the "life in the moment" shots as well as the orchestrated background photographs in the Conservatory Gardens in Central Park. We will highly recommend you to our friends, knowing that they will be more than happy with your work! Thanks again, Jon, Laury, Olivia & Evan

    Comments: Elana photographed our family in Central Park. First let us say that the entire experience of the photoshoot was wonderful and left us with great memories of the day. Whether it was photographing our entire family or just our children, Elana set a professional tone that kept us light and cheery, yet focused. As we would subsequently find out, that tone and her great artistic eye led to a fantastic set of family photos. By far, that afternoon resulted in the best family pictures we have ever taken. All we could do was stare at the results in amazement. Thank you Elana! Katherine and Damon Phillips
