What places internationally published photographer Elise Sinagra in a class all her own is her overall philosophy on the craft. To Elise, each and every photograph is, in fact, a timeless piece of art to live on and be appreciated by generations to come. This unique approach, fueled by unrivaled passion, dedication and professionalism and fortified with a strong background in graphic design and the arts, is equaled by her bright, inviting and even comforting personality. Believing that the art of photography goes far beyond the image, Elise has the incredible ability to put people at ease in front of the camera, allowing them to let go and remember who they are and what they are about.
In the industry for over two decades, Elise Sinagra has earned countless regional and national awards such as two prestigious Kodak Gallery Awards, two Fuji Masterpiece Awards, and multiple Courts of Honor for the "Best in Show". Her work has also been published in the PPA Loan Collection. Recognized both nationally and internationally, her wedding photographs have been published in Modern Bride magazine (Modern Bride-Boston, California, Chicago, etc.).
Elise holds a BFA from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and worked for eight years as a graphic designer, representing DKNY, Fila, Pepsi, FAO Schwartz, and many others. Since then she has attained highly recognized titles among imaging professionals, such as CPP ("Certified Professional Photographer"), Master Cr ("Photographic Craftsman"), and Master of Photography.
For all of her sophistication in terms of education, experience and accolades, Elise Sinagra wants to simply be known as someone who specializes in people. Elise's objective is to truly create works of art for her subjects; to use photography as a means to capture the true essence of her subjects.
