Gulnara Samoilova

With more than twenty years of photography experience, my background includes fine arts, fashion and photojournalism. My photographs are widely published around the world and have received many prestigious awards, including First Prize in the World Press Photo competition and nomination for the Pulitzer Prize. I earned a diploma in photography while in Russia and hold certificates from the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York and the Rochester Institute of Technology. My photographs are part of the collections of the New York Public Library, the Museum of the City of New York, the Museum Of Modern Art and numerous private collections. A wedding is a very significant and emotional event, and my approach is to make it as stress-free as possible.,
