Yana's and Michael's Wedding

When I met Yana and Michael for the first time, I was amazed at how well they clicked together.  It was truly my privilege to capture their day and their love story.  Huge thanks to Dan Speicher for helping me with this wedding and for taking so many amazing photographs.  And, of course, couldn't have done this without my sister Olga, who diligently lugged bags, lighting equipment and even had her debut shooting video:)

Pam's and Andy's Wedding

Pam's and Andy's wedding was one of the most emotional weddings I have ever seen.  Pam and Andy are so much in love with each other and it showed in every moment they were together.  They weren't the only emotional ones.  Lately, it seems like wedding guests are more interested in taking photos with their cell phones than in sharing a moment with the bride and groom.  This wedding was different.  Of course there were one or two shutterbugs who saw the entire day through the viewfinder of their camera, but most guests and family members truly shared all the moments with the newlyweds and their families.  I loved capturing this day - congratulations guys! Of course I could not have captured Pam's and Andy's story without my friend Jenny Karlsson - she captured the groom getting ready, as well as some of the coolest reception moments.
