Hi y'all! My name is Eli and I don't like boring intros, so here's a list of things you may or may not be wondering about me, but I'll let you know anyway. :)

  • I'm got married at a small b&b in Tuscany last year and it was a dream. 
  • 2018 will be my fourth year as a professional photographer.
  • I love photographing people. I love photographing newlyweds more. Their love for one another and excitement is like fuel to my heart. 
  • I mainly shoot film with a Pentax 645, and sometimes with a 35mm camera. I also carry a digital camera for backup.
  • I am also a graphic designer and photographer for Bai. Check them out! They have some delicious drinks. 
  • My favorite songs right now are
    • Ginger - Kah-lo
    • Something for your M.I.N.D. - Superorganism
    • Strangers - Sigrid 
    • Stars 4-Ever - Robyn
    • Johnny It's the Last Time - Raveena
    • Garden - SZA
  •  My favorite band (ever) is M83. If you don't know them, I recommend these two songs: "Graveyard Girl" which is very nostalgic, and "Intro" which is very epic. BUT, I am kinda disappointed with their new album. I also really love Adele, Miike Snow, and SZA. 
  • I was born in Goias, Brazil. My family and I moved to the Sates when I was nine years old. I became a citizen last year. 
  • I love all animals, and my wife and I rescued two black kittens this year; Alex and Zevon. Alex is the sweetest cutest most loving little fur-ball to ever grace God's green earth. Zevon is an asshole. And when Alex hangs with Zevon too much, then they're both assholes. 
  • I like to experiment with video and have done a few shorts. You can see them here.
  • I have an Etsy shop. I sell vintage clothes for both men and women, along with a few antiques. 
  • I don't like to admit it, but I love shopping, specially at thrift stores. I am always floored by prices of new clothes at regular stores. Specially Gap. When did Gap get so expensive?!
  • I have a collections of books, most of which just decorate my home. I love reading books, but I don't read them as mush as I should. If you have any recommendations, let me know!  
  • I burned a book once to start a campfire because it was the only thing I had that could catch quickly. I felt terrible.
  • I realized I was getting old when I started to listen to podcasts more than I listen to music. 
  • Favorite movies: "Upstream Color", "Jerry Maguire", "Cloud Atlas", "It's kind of a funny story", "Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl", "Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart", and pretty much anything by Wes Anderson. 
  • I own a lot of neutral colored clothes. That comes in handy when I wake up late and have to get ready with one eye open. It also comes in handy when I don't know what to wear, because there are just three colors to choose from. 
  • I also often shop in the women's department because clothes have no gender. I like to wear what fits and compliments me, not what society says I should wear. 
  • I've always dreamed of needing glasses since I was a child. When I was an adult, I realized I actually needed them when a friend put hers down and I stole it to try it on; I was shocked. Everything looked HD.
