Congratulations on your engagement! Thank you for your interest in élan Imaging. My work is my passion,
and it shows in every aspect of the élan Imaging experience. Clients
relish the personal attention we give to them and treasure the timeless
images of their portraits and weddings that we capture.

The story of élan … élan (ā-län’) which in French means “enthusiastic & distinctive
style or flair”. When Teresa Sandvig decided to launch her
photography company from her San Antonio based studio, her
unique style and outgoing personality made the choice of a company
name seem clear. In April of 2006, élan Imaging was born.
We believe you’ll recognize the love & dedication that
Teresa puts into every one of her portraits & weddings.
We hope that through the tradition of portraiture that everyone
will share their heirlooms and continue the tradition for
years to come. Quality and customer satisfaction remain
our top priority! Teresa wants you to love your new élan portraits
as much as she loved creating them for you.

élan Imaging is now offering beautiful Boudoir Portraits: www.elanboudoir.com For further information feel free to call or email: www.elanimaging.com 210.488.2056 teresa@elanimaging.com Read less

Teresa and her staff did an amazing job capturing all the details of our wedding. She is such a fun loving person and instantly makes you feel comfortable. My Husband is not a fan of photos and he was actually enjoying taking them because of how comfortable she made us feel. We expressed that photos were one of the most important aspects of our day, and Teresa and Cesar took the time to capture every detail for us, to include numerous photos of our guests. When we reviewed the photos it was a perfect instant replay of our wedding. We were running a bit behind the day of, and Teresa worked around the setbacks from some of our other vendors and still captured everything we wanted!! The quality and care of Elan Imaging is evident in every photo and we couldn't be happier with the products we received!!!!

Teresa and her team were amazing. She took our engagement photographs and they turned out amazing. On our wedding day, Teresa and her team captured every moment. They were amazing. They did not get in the way. They guided us during our pictures and ensured we got great shots. We are so thankful to Teresa and her team. My guests loved the team. They made the night fun too. Great photographer and we would definitely use them for a future event or photo session.

We were extremely blessed to have Teresa as the photographer for our wedding. When we began the wedding process, the photographer was one of the vendors that was most important to us and we truly believe we got the top one. Looking back, choosing Teresa and Elan Imaging was one of the best decisions we made. We met Teresa at the bridal fair at Kendall Plantation. Within 2 minutes of talking to her, we knew we had to have her. Teresa is kind, easy to talk to and it is evident she knows what she is doing. She made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. She discussed the packages thoroughly and made sure we chose the one that best fit what we wanted. Teresa took our engagement pictures and we purchased save the dates from her. Her turn around time for the save the dates was very quick and we, along with many of our guests, loved them! The day of our wedding Teresa was professional and worked seamlessly with our families and other vendors to make sure she and her assistant captured every moment of our wedding. I can't begin to explain just how much we love our wedding photos. To us, they are perfect! Not only was every moment of our wedding captured, but the pictures are flawless. Teresa is an extremely talented photographer and the pictures are exactly what we wanted. We had requested more candid photos and that is what we got. We get so many compliments on how great the pictures came out. I am so happy that Teresa's pictures tell the story of our wedding day. We will definitely be using Teresa in the future for all our photography needs. In our opinion, when looking for a photographer, there is no need to look any further than Teresa. She helped to make our most important day perfect!

Teresa did my bridal, boudoir, and our wedding photos. She is very professional and so kind. Her work is absolutely amazing! Photos from each session were available to view in very short amount of time, and Teresa has such a great eye for photography that it was very difficult for me to pick out just a couple of photos to purchase because I like almost all of them! I would recommend her to all of my friends, and plan on using her in the future for all my photography needs!

Consultation to final product (wedding pictures) has been perfect. Teresa is very nice and not a vendor who pushes products and services on you. However, when you are ready to select the products, she has lots to choose from. She made us feel very comfortable with her and with being photographed. She was very helpful in selecting an engagement photo shoot site. She was not judemental at all when I said I did not want a bridal portrait session. We think her camera is magical! We look flawless :) On wedding day we had two photographers and one videographer. It was a bit much being pulled here and there to get pictures taken; but, now looking back we are happy we were pulled because we have gorgeous images that will literally last a lifetime.

To me, a great photographer is one who balances her need to document the day as you want, without being intrusive. That is Teresa at Elan Imaging. She listens to what you want, and puts it into action. I didn't want too many family formals, and we were in and out of the church in no time. She always had suggestions leading up to the day of where to get good shots, and close to our venue. She brought in a talented assistant who was able to capture candid shots, and had excellent artistic vision. We really challenged Teresa with a tight timeframe and she delivered. And the photos we received back OVERdelievered. It was so difficult to go through and "pick" the best photos because they were all so good. teresa did an awesome job of remembering all the things i told her i wanted, that i couldn't on my wedding day. she even made sure to get me one last time before she left for the night to be sure i got one of the photos we'd wanted but never had the chance to get. and she captured many special moments that i didn't know about until i saw our photos. i'm not sure how she was everywhere at once, but she was.

I felt a lot of internal pressure to pick the interesting photography that is the current trend - overexposed, washed out colors, faded, vintage look, cutesy, etc..i even wondered if i'd regret not going that route. now that i see my classically beautiful photos, i am so glad i resisted. teresa is a highly skilled photographer and that never goes out of style. she knew of or found a variety of interesting backdrops along our wedding 'trail'...especially love the graffiti wall! With an eye for this, the photos really didn't need to be done over in editing to make them more interesting. i love that now, and know i will appreciate it even more in the years to come as my wedding day fades further from memory.
