Creatively documenting events, capturing the most memorable, emotion-felt moments through my quirky angles and attention to detail.


Whether you are a big organization or an independent creative, at some point you’ll want to document an event or a special occasion. The real struggle comes when having to choose from a myriad of photographers. How to make the right decision?

Essentially, it all boils down to style, quality and who you connect with. For me, forming a connection is of the most important factors as it’s the base to build your working relationship on, allowing clear communication to flow through. As your photographer, when we’re on the same page, we’ll naturally find common mindsets and talk openly, helping me understand what is most vital for you to be documented, as that’s something I always have in mind.

As a sociable introvert (yes, it’s possible) and a curious observer, I love finding a connection with people. I like to observe and make a note of the daily small details; someone’s smile, how they hold their coffee, what shadows paint …

It’s these kinds of elements my photography embodies as I want to encourage people to notice routine and all the ordinary moments we tend to overlook.

There’s no better feeling when your client gives you space and the creativity to do that. That’s why I’ve loved photographing Nostalgia Parties for the past two years. And even when shooting for more upscale organizations such as the European University Cyprus, I’m still able to let my quirkiness and attention to detail capture an event.

What clients say

  • “We have chosen Eleni to photograph over 10 of our parties so far, as she is a responsible and easy-going person to work with, and importantly she absorbs our directions and feedback, making her a better fit with every event she covers. Would happily recommend her.”
    — Claudio Saghbini & Nicholas Tryfon (Nostalgia Parties)
  • “Not only are Eleni's photos of great quality, taken with an artistic point of view, but her presence at my workshop was also a delight. She was courteous, respectful and the participants hardly noticed she was there. Communication with her is quick and easy and she is happy to cater to what it is you’re after. I would highly recommend her, you won’t be disappointed!”
    — Memnia Theodotou
  • “As a university we used Eleni for live event photography and she is always extremely professional, easy to work with and always returns the results we desire. Her photographs are always to the brief, of high quality and as a team we are pleased with the results. Working with Eleni is an absolute pleasure. We highly recommend Eleni to anyone.”
    — Stella Karavolia Heracleous, Specialist Admissions & Marketing Department (European University Cyprus)
  • “Eleni took beautiful photos of our babies’ christening. We understand that it was not very easy task to take photos of two babies at the same time, yet the result was incredible. Eleni is a talented photographer and a great person to work with. She had a discrete presence and a joyable approach. Thank you for all the effort in making a memory last in our family’s life. If we need a photographer again, we’ll surely pick Eleni again.”
    — Eleftheria Kazamia (mother of twins)

How I got started…

My dad got me my first camera when I was in my late teens so I could tag along on his photography outings. I spent the majority of those years pointing my camera in my friends’ faces.
At university I started being more playful with it, going off Program mode and flirting with manual settings (with a lot of failed attempts). It was during my year abroad in Spain and Panama that I discovered I loved photographing the streets and its stories. It was a way for me to understand a new place I was living in, its culture and its people.
Today, I take my dad on photo walks, discuss angles & composition and brainstorm creative ways to expand this passion.
After all, he is the backbone of Eleni Philippou Photography.
