You can look at a picture for a week and NEVER think of it again. You can also look at the picture for a second and think of it ALL YOUR LIFE. ― Joan Miro
I don’t have a shiny story of how my photography journey began. I was born in Crimea to a family trying to make ends meet in a broken post-socialist economy. In my childhood I had white winters and mesmerizing fall foliage, but no place for dreams. I fell in love with photography not just because it allowed me to dream and grow, but also because of how it enriched me. I finally have something to give back to the world. And when we give, we truly live.
I strive to tell each story with beauty and elegance. I constantly search for good light, from getting ready, to portraits, to the candlelit reception of your dinner. I am passionate about candid moments photographed artistically, and love capturing the real moments of our couples’ journeys. Over a decade of wedding, yet every love story still feels like the first one. To document your journey would be an honor. Send me a note below and let’s adventure together!

The skylines of New York and Chicago are worth all the sky miles
Good days start with J.Crew blazers
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Amalfi Coast should be on everyone's list

The world runs on cappuccinos
