It all started back in the university, when I had chance to travel in the US and Australia which both influenced on my mind a lot and changed my attitude on more artistic one that time.
From there, I was inspired to buy a camera, I started to teach myself photography, later I have visited some workshops based on theory of using light and wedding photography itself. I was a graduate of The Academy of Economics & Law in the Bachelor of Economy & Management. On the weekends I started assisting some local wedding photographers and taking pictures of anything I could find, flowers in the garden, family members, kids on the line etc. Looking back now the photos are terrible, but it was just the beginning.
I had always listened to my heart that the direction my photography. From 2009 I’m a full time wedding photographer, I wait each wedding day, enjoy peoples’ emotions, each couples which trust me to photograph their special event so I do it well in a fun and relaxed manner.
I've photographed weddings both in Russia and Europe
