Vladimir Khaptinskiy

Hi! My name is Vladimir, I'm a wedding photographer, 46 years old and I'm from Münster.

My first encounter with photography was in 2002, when I first picked up a compact camera. Before that, I never thought that I would be a photographer. Of course, my first pictures were not perfect, luckily I had friends who supported me with simple words - "Keep it going, that works well". I met my teacher, who taught me to see the beauty of everyday life, in 2003. This was a professional photographer from Ryazan Eugeniy Kashirin. His teaching was never strict - "You have to do it that way" - no, he always said: I would do it ... Even though he had died of cancer to my great regret, his words impressed me deeply a: "Photography is the art of the moment".

Like every amateur, I tried different kinds of photography, then I realized what my heart is - the people and their emotions - the indescribable, fast-moving things that can be captured with a camera. And where you can see the real and unencumbered, if not the most beautiful day of her life ... That's why I photograph weddings, I'm always on the hunt for unforgettable moments that they can enjoy after many years. And that's the main value of photography for me - that I can capture your feelings in my photos. At some point you will show these photos to your children. I want you to smile while watching, remember your emotions and return to a moment back in that time ...
