About the Owner



My name is Alicia Greenwell.

I am a photographer, designer, traveler, story teller, coffee nerd and the owner-operator of Elements & Designs.


At Elements & Designs, my goal is to work with the dreamers, the go-getters and the risk takers to create photographs and designs that tell your story. I take the time to research and learn everything about your company and project to create images that align with your project’s goals.

I graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Journalism and I’ve always loved capturing and retelling a story using images. I understand the importance and techniques of not just creating an image, but creating an image with intent and honesty.

I worked as a barista for most of my postgraduate life, which allowed me to run and grow my business part-time, travel, and learn what I am capable of. To be honest, I still like to nerd-out with other baristas about coffee and latte art.

I recently moved to Boulder, Colorado from the Big Island of Hawai’i and I travel between the two states often. Both states are beautiful and I feel lucky to call both Hawai’i and Colorado my home.

If you’d like to sit down, get a cup of coffee and talk about your project please feel free to email me to set up a time to chat. I look forward to learning about you and your project.
