Hi! I’m Elizabeth Victoria!

While I may look like your average person, on the inside I’m much more of a punk with purple hair and full sleeve tattoos. I had a tongue piercing when I was younger but that’s as far as I got.

I love animals, sometimes more than people. If animals got married and they chose me as their wedding photographer, my life would be complete.

Laughter is the best medicine. Early on in life, I found that joking about something sad helped me to cope. Without humor I’d be an inconsolable blob of tears and snot.

Equality is immensely important to me. I believe everyone should be treated with the same dignity and respect regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, or social class.

Nature is my religion. The waterfalls in Iceland, the Swiss Alps, California’s red woods, the NaPali Coast in Kauai – these places are where I find peace and inspiration.

I graduated in 2008 from California State University Channel Islands with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Photography & Digital Media. I’ve spoken on a panel in New York on how to succeed in photography and my work has been featured in numerous publications.

Still curious about me?
