My passion for photography came as a surprise to me when in 2009 I was studying web design in Ukraine. I took a digital photography course, and I rented a camera because it seemed to me it only made sense to know photography well if I was going to be in web design, and I thought it might be a nice second income for me. Little did I know then I’d find a passion for art that would lead me into a whole new phase of my life. When I find something that fascinates me, my heart and my mind catch fire. Photography was something I had always admired, but when I began to put the camera to my eyes and learned how to capture light, angles, and form, it was like unlocking a secret. It seemed like in the blink of an eye; I had found a career that was not only meaningful, it offered me the opportunity to continue to learn and grow, something that speaks deeply to me. Mastering photography is something I continue to work on every single day. In summer 2019 I won first place in WPPI, which is one of the most popular and successful photography tradeshows available. My work was published in the magazine Rangefinder. European culture, art, and literature have inspired a wanderlust in me that led me to the US in 2016 after I met my husband, who is Italian-American. Traveling and photographing everything I see breathes life into my soul. I truly believe I see the world differently since I discovered photography, and now I want to see as much of the world as I can! I’m so grateful to have found a career that allows me to combine my lifelong love of art and learning about the world. I’m fluent in Ukrainian, Russian and English and my latest challenge is learning Italian, so I can conversationally converse with my husband’s family. When I’m not marveling at the wonders around me, I’m probably listening to a podcast, audiobook or horseback riding. I’m a super-high energy person who loves working on self-improvement in every aspect of my life, and who believes in helping others and our planet. You’ll find my approach to weddings to be one of service to my clients. I believe in being a resource for you! I’m always a phone call or a text away if you need help with planning any element of your day. I feel that my role goes beyond the photographer, and my clients often seek my advice on other aspects of their wedding day, and I love it. I work diligently to deliver quality images, to be responsive to my customers, and to provide an outstanding experience from start to finish.
