Bonjour! Guten Tag! Howdy!
My name is Elise "E-liz" Sanchez, and I am a professional photographer with a vibrant, documentary style. I am a visual story teller specializing in wedding and portrait photography.
I am from Bayou Lafourche, Louisiana, and graduated from Louisiana Tech University in 2006: bachelor of Fine Arts Photography, Cum Laude distinction. I am married to the most handsome civil engineer in town, and we have three rambunctious boys. We have previously lived in Stuttgart, Germany, and New Orleans, Louisiana.
I am new to San Antonio, Texas, and look forward to creating art with you. I love meeting new people!
My tale starts on the bayou where Cajuns are tenacious and have a rich music and culinary heritage. Our speech is peppered with French, and our kitchens eternally ready to make a roux. We observe four seasons- shrimp, crawfish, crab, and oyster. But where our hearts truly lie is in simple, good times with good friends and family. Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!)
I follow in the footsteps of my grandmother. Her constant accessory was a sturdy 35mm Minolta with a fixed 50mm, 1.4f. She had natural sense of composition and the personality to either work a room or be the quiet observer when needed. She told my family’s story, and now I want to tell your family’s story.

I also volunteer my time and talent with 2 wonderful organizations.
Red Thread Sessions is an organization that connects adoptive families with photographers who take a special interest in adoption.
Hearts Apart is an organization that connects families while our military men and women are serving abroad.
