Photographer Bio

For five years I was a student of the Saint-Petersburg University of Culture and Art and after graduating I found my love to photography. It is a great honor when people share a part of their life and confide you to be with them on one of the most important days in their life. The day when two hearts in love unite, when a new family is created. I really value this trust and I understand that the photographs will be the most precious reminder of all the amazing unforgettable happy moments. That is why the pictures my clients receive are made with my total dedication, inspiration and unique personal touch. They are corrected to detail and finished with the highest professional standards. And it’s not only photographs, it is a story, wrote in a very special way called, “drawing with light”, cause this is the real meaning of the word “photography”.
