Eric and his photographers used their creativity and decided to photograph us at the nearby Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. Our trust was immediately gained with their decision and we instantly knew the shoot was going to be even better than anticipated. Choosing Eric Llanes Photography was one of the best decisions we made in planning our big day!

Eric and Sara are AMAZING!! We have had several family photo shoots with them and could not be any happier with the pictures. They are so incredibly easy to work with. Their talent is truly unbeatable. We have received so many compliments on how great our pictures are. People are constantly asking who our photographer is. I cannot say enough good things about this company. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for amazing and beautiful pictures!

We had our first family photos taken by Eric Llanes and could not be more pleased with the results.  The photos are beautiful and they truly captured our kids personalities.  We were looking for a photographer who would give us posed yet natural pictures as well as some spontaneous ones and they delivered on both.  From experience I know how difficult it is to get a good, natural looking shot of small children – even getting everyone to look at the camera at the same time is so hard – but I was amazed at the many great shots they got of all five of us as well as our three kids together.  The talent in the photos speaks for itself but the business behind the photography is equally professional.  Communication was extremely prompt and we got our pictures very quickly.  I’m happy to recommend them (and have) to anyone looking to have family photos taken.

Our Story

Eric Llanes Photography (ELP) was launched in June 2012—almost overnight—out of an unexpected demand and interest in photos we’d taken of our families and the special events of our friends. What started out as a hobby for husband-and-wife team, Eric and Sara Llanes, became a professional services company officially named Llanes Creative.

In order to keep up with the bookings while maintaining the quality service and deliverables to our growing client base, within the first year, we added two family members to our team. But even with four of us it was still difficult for all of us to be working full-time with ELP on the side. Just after celebrating ELP’s one-year anniversary in June 2013, by August 2013, Sara made the decision to leave her IT career to manage and grow our business to its potential. Being able to work from home and spend more time with the kiddos had a lot to do with it, too. Nonetheless, we’ve been able to branch out into other facets of the wedding services industry since August! For more information on how we can help you save time and spare yourself from the headaches of wedding DIY projects, take a few minutes to visit Sara’s website and also, check out our Etsy shop!

Our Philosophy


Photos are simply snapshots of moments that are gone forever after the moment has passed. As photographers, we do not take this lightly; and it is our goal to capture each moment with a photo that easily conveys the emotions that were felt and/or the characteristics of the surrounding environment in the most beautiful way possible.

On engagement or family shoots, you’ll have so much fun that you’ll forget any anxiety or feelings of nervousness you may have been feeling leading up to your shoot date. We’re really a family at ELP which makes the entire session a comedy. Nothing is forced – the chemistry is natural, and contagious! And when you’re comfortable during your shoot, that’s what gives us the opportunity to capture the organic beauty of the love shared among our couples, families, and kids.

Much of our success can be credited, not only to the evidence of quality that is easily seen in our photos, but also to our clients who refer us to their friends and family. Aside from the photos, the next most frequent accolade we receive from our past clients is that we’re so fun to work with, that what you see in the finished product are the honest-to-god natural, genuine, and raw emotions.

OUR PROMISE TO YOU

The quality that we offer is easily seen in our photos, but may not be as obvious in the non-tangibles. Specialized skills, talent, service, chemistry – are just a few examples of what sets us apart.
