What we Believe
Your Captivating Moments Photography is a family owned business that specializes in photographing the many stories that life brings us all. We look at life as a journey with many milestones along the way, and when our journey gives us time to pause and reflect... how wonderful is it to pull out a family photo album or view the many memories framed upon our walls? Those images take us back to those we have lost and to treasured times we have forgotten which is why many refer to these saved memories as “priceless”
"With the click of a shutter I AM ABLE TO freeze a moment in time, preserve a family's history & ensure future generations will come to know their ancestors." (B. Forester).
My husband and I just love the above quote because we all have those special moments in time that deserve to be captured and treasured, and we would love to be the photographers that help you capture & freeze those moments in your Life! We have watched our boys grow over the years and as you can imagine, we have many precious memories of their early childhood. Photography has allowed us to capture some of the big moments, and I have to say that it’s just amazing how something as simple as a picture can bring back those cherished memories and so much more; reminders of how things used to be... to see the changes our boys have gone through... a great play in a game... a part in a school play, High School graduation, etc.
We are a husband and wife team that works together to capture your special times; “your captivating moments” in your life that you want to hold onto and remember. Of course, this is something easy to type on a web site, but understand that we are also proud parents and have been married for over 25 years. We understand the importance of what we are providing, and our goal is to provide you with pictures you can proudly display on your walls or within your family / wedding album. Pictures you and your family can pull out and remember the good times... remember how things were... and laugh about the memories the images remind us of...
We would love the opportunity to speak with you! Please give us a call or email us if you don’t find the answers to your questions on our website. We consider it an honor to work such amazing people and we hope to meet you soon!
Thanks so much for checking us out!
Lorena - Owner / Photographer - Your Captivating Moments Photography
Hey there! We're Lorena and Tom.
We have lived in Georgia our whole life. We and our two son's were all born in the same hospital - that’s a true Georgia native! It’s been such an amazing life journey watching our boys grow and we are thankful everyday that we were chosen and blessed to be their parents. Our oldest son is now in college and our youngest is in high school, I find this hard to believe! Time passes so quickly and photography is a way to capture all the tiny moments that make life special. We have been married over 25 years and are thrilled to work side by side as we capture the special moments of others.
Five years ago we turned our hobby of photography into business and Your Captivating Moments Photography was born! Along the way there there have been so many incredible people and we've loved working with each and everyone of them to capture their special moment. We have had the privilege of photographing so many huge life events, from wedding photography, to maternity and newborn pictures to family and high school seniors to special events like Sweet 16’s and the all important, and fun, cake smash of deserving one year old boys and girls. There are so many important moments, they deserve to be captured by someone who will treasure the moment as much as you do. We promise to work along side you to create lasting images that you will treasure for a lifetime.
We can’t wait to meet you!!
What others are saying...
Maternity photoshoot; the Best in the Business!
If you are looking for a maternity/family photographer; look no further! You have come to the right place and I promise you will not be disappointed. You cannot ask for a better photography experience than with Lorena and Tom. They are extremely responsive and accommodating. They even came prepared with props and photo ideas without me even asking (especially great for those of us who didn't inherit the creativity gene or perhaps an indecisive first time mom- to-be like me). The pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous; beyond words. The whole experience from start to finish was phenomenal, personal and professional. We look forward to the arrival of our little one and eventually we hope to have them take pictures of us together as a family too!
Fabulous Family Portrait Session
Lorena and Tom did such a fantastic job choosing the perfect Fall portrait picture location and did what they do best - click gorgeous pictures of our family and our 4 year old bundle of energy :) They were so patient and captured his most precious facial expressions. Lorena offered great tips in co-ordinating our outfits and I cannot say enough about how great it is to work with them - they have a knack of capturing the most beautiful family moments on camera. We have used them a couple times now and have big smiles on our faces when we see the photos :)
I was so pleased with Lorena and your captivating moments photography! She was on time, brought everything she needed, incorporated the items that were important to me, and was very patient when the baby needed to be fed or put back to sleep. She genuinely loves what she does! The package was reasonably priced and included the items I wanted and she was done editing in less than a week. I would highly recommend to anyone that needs a photographer!
Your Captivating Moments Photography was amazing. My daughter's senior photo shoot could not have been more incredible. Lorena and Tommy Elsey are amazing photographers, and they make the shoot relaxing and fun. The final product was top notch! I would recommend them without hesitation
We had family maternity photos taken and they came out just beautiful. Thank you so much for your creativeness and patience, and your husband was not just there helping you with props but had great photography ideas too - a perfect duo!!
Best family pictures ever!
Finally, we have a family picture capturing 3 generations that all of us can be proud of! The quality of the finished photos were top notch but most importantly, the shoot itself was carefully planned and orchestrated around the needs of my family. College aged kids and mobility-challenged grandparents are not the easiest subjects to photograph but everyone actually enjoyed the process. It was fun and we loved the creative shots and beautiful natural backdrop. We will recommend you to all our friends and definitely use you for all our photography needs in the future!
