Introduction: Hi! I'm Eliana, and I'm a visual storyteller. I've worked as a photographer for the University of Chicago for four years in addition to my work as a freelance event and family photographer. I love fostering connections with my clients. The best pictures come when you feel comfortable and confident in front of the lens, and I'm here to help you get there! Every session comes with a pre-shoot consultation where we'll get to know each other and you can tell me exactly what your vision is. I love using photography to turn moments into memories. Let me help you tell your story!

I've never had a a photographer give the overall energy and care that Eliana Melmed did. The photos came out beautifully with a highlight on the most sentimental moments of our wedding. I'm so thankful for Eliana for capturing the best part of my life in stunning detail. If you're looking for someone who will capture the essence of the moment, Eliana is your photographer.

Eliana was amazing! It was my first photoshoot and I never imagined it would be this fun! Now I want to do it every week. She make me feel comfortable in front of a camera, something unusual on me. She really knows what she's doing and have a great eye to find nice spots. This are the most beautiful photos I have ever had. And such a great and funny time. I'm very grateful we did this with her!

Our photo shoot with Eliana was amazing! She is so talented and I would highly recommend her. I hired her to do family photos with my husband, myself, and our 3 year old and 1 year old kids. She had such an energetic and sweet personality--our kids warmed up to her right away. She had them laughing and smiling with no issues. She listened to my wants/needs for the photos yet also added some great suggestions of her own. Turnaround time to get the photos back was the quickest I've experienced with any photographer, and she was willing to make a few additional photoshop edits per my request free of charge. I will definitely be using her for my next family photo shoot!

Your family is adorable and so fun to work with! Looking forward to working together again soon!

Eliana was AMAZING!! Seriously she was a life saver she took the extra time and work to had the pictures ready for when we needed them PLUS the quality of the pictures was so great! We did a smash cake session with a 1 year old baby and babies are not easy to photograph and yet she managed to get the best pictures of my little baby. She is definitely talented!!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    If you're a new customer, it's important to me that we get to know each other before the session so that I can understand what you'd like to get out of it. I want to make sure we're a good fit for each other. When you're comfortable and excited about the shoot, your pictures will glow!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    In addition to taking college-level coursework on photography and documentary production, I've worked as a professional photographer for the University of Chicago's Editorial Team throughout my years in college. This role has taken me to countless events and introduced me to so many inspiring individuals that it's been a pleasure to capture on camera!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I've been fascinated by photography and camerawork since I was in high school. I've always loved playing around with the settings on my camera and the way I frame subjects to create an image that is juuuust right!
