As a fine art wedding photographer, I don't view photographs as "just pictures". Instead, I see them as authentic moments that become family heirlooms. I live for heartfelt and joyful moments and encourage genuine connection, giving you a sense of empowerment and confidence to document your milestones in a way that is unique to your personal story.
My philosophy as a hybrid fine art storyteller is not to disrupt the natural beauty around us but rather, embrace it. My photography is personal and sentimental because I believe that your life is as special as a unique piece of art. I work with film and digital mediums because the colors that film creates are exceptionally beautiful. My images are not overly processed and artificial, but instead are bright and refined, unforced and honest.
Lets capture the moments and create imagery that will evoke nostalgia and withstand the test of time.

"Where do I even begin?!...
For the engagement shoot, Ana made sure every detail (and every strand of hair) was perfect. She scoped out the area ahead of time and came prepared with a bunch of ideas, posed us, made us laugh, and in the end the photos were absolutely stunning.
Ana was super helpful in the planning process leading up to my big day! She had day of schedule templates ready to go and we met to discuss every detail and timing. I knew ahead of time what to have ready for photos, so when Ana and her team arrived to the wedding venue we were able to swiftly get to work... Ana quickly took charge, even made arrangements with the other vendors (I'm not sure where she found the time!), told us where and how to pose (I can't stress enough how important it is to find a photographer that will do this for you), all while making things fun and worry-free for me. The bridal party even let me know how impressed they were with her professionalism and charm.
But most importantly, the photos were just stunning. We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of a selection of photos within days of the event - my guests and I were SO impressed with her quick turnaround - and I am just in awe. In my past experiences with photographers, there were a few good shots and the rest were just okay. Not with Ana. I am not exaggerating when I say every single photo is magical. Now I have the "problem" of deciding which ones to get framed through her interactive print store, on her beautifully designed website.
What's more, when my videographer ghosted me 9 days before the wedding date, Ana came to the rescue with a handful of recommendations. Miraculously one of them worked out. I really could not recommend Ana enough. If you're lucky enough that she's available for your event, don't even hesitate to book her! You will be blown away."
Irina & Michael
"First off, it’s clear that Anastasiya is a master at her craft. The photos came out beautifully because of her direction for posing, for styling, editing etc. these photos are truly moments my fiancé and I will treasure forever.So if you want fabulous photos look no further for a photographer. I also think anastasiya is such a gem of a human. She is kind, funny and we left the photoshoot wanting to also be her friend haha. 10/10 would recommend her to all my friends and anyone I meet!"
Bettina & Anthony
“Ana's warm, inviting, and patient personality helped create some life long mother's day memories for me and my family which includes an energetic toddler and a clingy infant. She does a combination of "in the moment" and posed photos which I appreciated. The photos came out bright and beautiful. They have been complimented by all who has seen them. I can not recommend her enough.”
Franchesca & Family
"We had Anastasiya do our family photos for my birthday. She was great with the kids and we love the photos. She was very professional and even helped us carry some of our things to our car after the session. I highly recommend Anastasiya Photography. Thanks Ana you've created one of the best memories for our family, we'll forever be grateful. Looking forward to future shoots with you."
Lucila & Family
“Ana is an absolute sweetheart! She made our session extremely comfortable and gave us direction on how to pose, which helped us as a couple who is awkward in front of a camera. The whole process went smoothly, to replying to our initial inquiry quickly, providing us informational guides and engaging us in our ideas. Ana took her time during the shoot and included her own style and creativity using different poses and angles, which captured our story beautifully. She even provided a sneak peak of our photos shortly after and delivered our gallery faster than expected. We highly recommend working with her and we can’t wait to schedule a future session soon.”
Lani & Jimmy
“My wife and I were looking for a photographer to take casual family photos. We were so fortunate to find Ana. Trying to take photos with two young daughters as well as our family dog was no easy task! Especially with one daughter who is very camera shy. Ana is a consummate professional and very warm hearted. By the time the photo shoot was over, both our girls were striking their best poses. The photos she took were amazing! No more selfies for us, and we will be using Ana again whenever we need any professional photography!”
Jia, Woojoo & Family
“This was my first time doing a professional photoshoot and I must say Ana went above and beyond with the production of this session. She had 3 theme sets ready and MUAH available to help. Also offered complimentary champagne, water, and snacks. Along with all that, and to help with the nerves and be comfortable during the session, Ana asked us what kind of music we'd like playing in the background and honestly this made the whole experience even more fun and enjoyable. Music is always good to calm the nerves and feel more relaxed, especially in a photoshoot :) Everything was perfect and planned thoroughly by an expert. I look forward to shoot another session!”
