Hi! I'm Karen!! A little bit about ÉPS and me... 
 I actually founded my business in Colorado in 2008 and as of 2015 I've been in the thick of replanting in Colorado Springs. My photography career carried me to NYC for two years to be apart of the wedding industry in ways I couldn't have imagined.  NY was so good but I missed that small town feel of C/S.  Happy to be back.

When I'm not taking photos, I'm likely welcoming people to my husband and my home to share food, stories and life. I super thrive in midst of relationships, while hosting friends new and old, and in the midst of exploring and adventuring all of the things around me. And of course I travel all over the map to photograph my clientele, to meet you wherever you're at.  Dig around the site and if you love what you see, please connect. I cannot wait to get to know you + document your story.


Hello! I am Katie Rae Bode and am a photographer and writer working with Elan Photographie Studio. I am Virginia born, Georgia raised, and a previous resident of Pennsylvania, Oregon, Florida, and Colorado. I have found home all over the country these last few years but am now living in Columbus, Mississippi, where my amazing husband is stationed here with the Air Force. 

With photography, I love capturing the beauty of each person I am honored to take photos of, whether in the bush of Zambia or in a field with a pregnant momma and her two other sweet children in Mississippi. I thrive telling stories through each photo and helping someone to leave feeling more loved and confident about who they are then when we first started the session.

I am available to travel to wherever your event may be, whether Italy or Colorado, as well as am available in Columbus, MS to capture the beauty that is your everyday life. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to meeting you soon!


Hey y’all, I’m Sean! I am an Arizona native and a student at Arizona State (Go Devils!) I love music, making food, being outdoors and sharing it all with good company!

I first picked up a camera in 2012 and haven’t put one down since. It started with capturing moments that were near and dear to my heart which lead me to want to do the same for others. Whether it’s a little glance between a mother and child, or the first look at a wedding or sweet, I believe no life event should be forgotten. I love highlighting these occasions, special and everyday. Our lives are so busy today I find it rare to simply live in the present. I can’t wait to get to know you and capture the moments that are making your life great!
