Catching the soul and making it smile!
I was always passionate about photography in general, but weddings, especially elopements, made me believe in natural beauty.
I started my carrier as a studio photographer in Kyiv, but quickly found interest in outdoor pictures; tried to go to big weddings, but finally found myself enjoying capturing small intimate weddings, where I can be in connection with the couple and make their day even more emotional with the pictures and memories.
People! They are my biggest inspiration. Of course, I like books, paintings, and travelling, but only people can give me an emotional booster. I adore capturing emotions and seeing the happiness and joy, love and tears on the faces – I won’t ever be tired of spending time with people.
City streets, parks, small yards, even lakes or seaside. But the most important thing for me is a couple. Background and outfits make pictures look better looking, but the most adorable are the people in the pictures.
I have plenty of pictures I like. And I am the person who hires a photographer multiple times every year. I love being surrounded by my sons and family in the pictures. So the most liked is a closeup picture with my husband, taken in Miami, we’re laughing there like crazy people. It was captured by a domestic photographer, whom I really adore.
“Imagine your partner naked on the beach with 2 cocktails in their hands.”
Honestly, a good simple talk always helps. And I talk and listen a lot. People like people who are ready to be in the dialogue. And they trust you very fast. There is trust – there is a sign of friendship – and it’s easy to be natural and emotional in front of a friend, even this friend with a professional camera.
Trust your photographer. Honest communication, being on the same page and relax. I make a comfortable atmosphere and then I only need to push a button.
I am already working IN one. But I would love to capture a wedding in Barcelona.
Teaching photography! Explaining to others how to become a photographer! Besides that, I love to spend time with my family: I have three wonderful sons. And travelling around the world!
