photography director


A longtime professional architect, lifelong outdoor enthusiast, and prolific artist, Elizabeth Ohep has worked in - and continues to explore - many different mediums. She first found a love for photography in her native Venezuela, where she developed a deep understanding of composition and captured many beautiful images while adventuring outdoors. Her interest expanded to architectural photography, then eventually to photojournalistic portraiture. She consistently seeks to convey extraordinary moments set in exquisite, natural surroundings.

Her foray into wedding photography began when, at the request of our director, she began documenting weddings for   ~ A Mystical Ceremony ~   and she has since provided countless fine images for our ministry. Now capturing the excitement, romance, and drama of 'the big day' exclusively for our clients, Elizabeth continues to expand her diverse portfolio by providing exemplary photographic services at a remarkably low cost. She works solely with two digital cameras, and clients receive the original images which they may have printed wherever they prefer. She is based in central Arizona, serves primarily the Southwest, and travels nationally and internationally when her schedule permits.

For post-ceremony pictures, she is often joined by Rev. Krawarik-Graham, who shares her passion for outstanding photography and assists her {usually by scurrying about and moving people... and things} with insuring that couples obtain the finest possible result in the time available.

Engagement & Elopement sessions start at only $200, and listed rates are discounted upon booking a ceremony. As we are not a studio, all work is presented in digital format (CD/email/download). Elizabeth and any other photographers retain all copyrights. Clients are given unlimited copyright permission and images may be published anywhere, provided that the photographer is credited for their work appropriately. To engage photography services, just inquire at your preliminary interview. If Elizabeth has an opening, she will be delighted to assist you in preserving your fondest memories!

Posted below are images from past projects that serve as examples of Elizabeth's style. All photographs were taken using natural light only - and have not been enhanced or corrected in any way. Most have been cropped or re-sized to improve web viewing.
{Photo enhancement or correction is available at an additional fee}
