Lovely to Meet You

Life is an awfully big adventure ...

Chester wedding photographer

A very warm welcome to you and congratulations on your engagement!

For the past 12 or so years I've developed into an international wedding photographer based in the UK and in France.

Brought up in Russia and exposed from an early age to the arts, ballet and theatre I naturally see and appreciate the beauty and originality in people and life.

My natural curiosity and desire to travel led me to an early career in journalism and a close encounter with the international world of catwalks and fashion.

The words to describe my style of photography (as well as my clothes and interiors as it happens) would have to be classic, timeless and artistic. I'm drawn to sincere moments and emotions.

Many years of experience of being a wedding photographer allows me to anticipate certain moments at a wedding. But I am also looking for spontaneous moments. Being a sincere kind of soul, I'm drawn to sincere moments and emotions.

I photograph hugs, touches, smiles, tears, rolled eyes and raised eyebrows as well as well well-thought-out details and wedding portraits. 

Natural light, the setting, creative composition and a genuine desire to create a story of you, your love, your family and freinds that will take your breath away are the magic ingredients of my work. 

As I photograph in a documentary style, without directing or keeping an eye on the clock, I love working with couples who like doing things their own way and who are utterly in love.

Couples who create their own story, their own traditions, who celebrate who they are with all their quirkes are my kind of couples. 

Being part of the international world is very important to me and I love working with people from all over the world.

Travel, original customs, food, architecture, dance, film, fashion and natural light are my inspiration.

My aim is to tell the story of your romance, your love and relationship through my unobtrusive, natural images. I want to capture the emotions, the atmosphere and the setting of your wedding using my skill of a keen observer and a natural appreciation of elegance and sophistication.

I look forward to hearing about you and your world.
