Roman  Grinev

I wasn't one of those kids who had a camera around his neck at the age of 2. Actually, I didn't really grow up in a creative household. Both my parents worked 9-to-5 jobs. After high school, I went off to business school because that's all I really knew. In my third year of college, I was required to take an elective. I chose photography, and it really opened my eyes to see the world from a completely new perspective. I found I really enjoyed going around the streets of Boston, just documenting street life as I saw it. Around this same time, I meet an artsy girl named Kim, who is now my wonderful, creative wife.

All of these forces got me out of business school and into a professional, full-time photography program at the New England School of Photography. What a great experience and a great foundation. I immediately discovered that my passion was documenting people and their lives. So in 1996, I started working for local newspapers in Massachusetts. I fell into weddings by accident when a fellow photographer at the paper told me she shot weddings on the side.

Kim and I moved to the Washington DC area in 2000 for a change of pace, since we both grew up in Massachusetts. I continued working for newspapers and balancing a wedding business, but decided in 2003 to focus solely on documenting weddings. Now, to each wedding, I bring my passion for the craft and my experience documenting hundreds of weddings and thousands of newspaper assignments. I love every minute of it.
