The Story of élan 

élan is pronouced (a-lan') in french means: "enthusiastic & distinctive style". When Teresa Sandvig decided to launch a photography company from her San Antonio based studio, our unique style and outgoing personalities made the choice of a company name seem clear. In April 2006, élan Imaging was born. We believe you'll recognize the love and dedication that we put into every one of our portraits & weddings. We hope, through the tradition of portraiture that everyone will continue to share these heirlooms for years to come. Quality and customer satisfaction remain our top priority! We want you to love your new élan portraits as much as we loved creating them for you.

On a more personal note:

Teresa is originally from Montana, where she was born and raised. She attended the University of Montana (Go Grizzlies), where she earned her degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing and Management. She met her husband at the University of Montana. After graduation they moved to San Antonio, Texas together so he could attend law school at St. Mary's University.  She now has two beautiful children! 

Teresa started doing photography professionally over 8 years ago and she has never looked back. Teresa could not image myself being in any other profession! She loves what she does and enjoys meeting a lot of unique people. Teresa has met many great wedding vendors and clients whom have become friends.

Teresa had worked several years for two very well known photographers in the San Antonio wedding industry, before starting her own business venture over three years ago with Photography by Teresa back in 2006. She had been searching for that "perfect" business name and finally decided on élan Imaging.

Teresa thanks everyone who has encouraged her to do what she loves to do and for giving her the strength and courage in herself to go out and do it!

She couldn't be more blessed with this opportunity and talent that she has been given!
