About Us

Christina, Jay & Mila Golian - Elemental Photography

Jay and Christina met and fell in love on the slopes of Whistler in British Columbia, Canada in 2005. They relocated to Scotland (Christina's homeland) and settled in Edinburgh, where Elemental was born.

Their distinctive photography style, combined with their friendly personalities and professional approach, has made them highly in demand as wedding and portrait photographers, and they are recommended by Edinburgh's finest wedding venues. They also love to travel for weddings, when their diary allows. As a husband and wife team, they appreciate the importance of capturing your wedding story – and all the love & laughter, emotion & energy that goes with it – in full.

Both Christina and Jay are qualified, award-winning members of the Master Photographers Association. They have won a number of major awards through their 8 year professional photography career, not only for their wedding images but also in portrait and fashion photography.

When not on a shoot, Jay likes to head out into the wilderness, where he can often be found negotiating a munro in the dark or camping out overnight to get the perfect landscape photo. Meanwhile, Christina enjoys writing short stories, dreaming up travel plans and listening to 80s hair rock. They both love snowboarding, bingeing on box sets and hanging out with their little girl, Mila. She likes making her parents talk like pirates and is kind enough to share her Lego.
