Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever …it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
— Aaron Siskind

Welcome to my website! This is where I show my work and write about what stirs me. 

The most beautiful thing in the world is, precisely, the conjunction of learning and inspiration.  I live by this. I am a lifetime student who’s inspired by the special moments of Life – mine and others.  And as a photographer I think I can make a difference in other people lives by letting the beauty I love become the good I do

I am totally positive and happy! I draw inspiration and love form my beloved husband and two little daughters. They mean a world to me! And I bring this love and passion into my photography – I love working with people and I am passionate about creating photographs to be treasured and shared for years to come.

Sincerely yours ,

Daria

My Style

Traditional style

Traditional style

All of my clients ask me what style I am shooting  in.        I call it  illustrative style.
Since not everyone is into photography that deep I will explain what it means.
Basically it is a mix of styles. You won't get just documentary or only traditional images. I mix and match depending on your wedding style and personalities. 
Rather then constantly posing your pictures, I follow you and your guests throughout the wedding day, capturing events as they unfold in order to tell the story of your wedding. My goal is to fade into the background and become “invisible” to the crowd in order to get these candid or unposed shots. And this style of photography is called documentary

However I photograph in traditional style as well to make sure you and your families get photographs to frame. Usually we have dedicated time for the traditional portrait session. I work from a “shot list,” ensuring we cover all the elements the bride and groom have requested.  To make sure every detail of the shots is perfect, my assistants and I not only adjust our equipment, but also the background, the subject’s body alignment, and even the attire.  
 
Couples interested in a more edgy result may prefer Fine Art Portraiture, with its dramatic lighting, unique angles and European flavor.
Besides I do editorial photographs - images of the venue, locations, rings, flowers, table setups, all the fun details. 

My illustrative style is a pleasing blend of traditional and photojournalistic, with an emphasis on composition, lighting and background. Illustrative style captures some of the spontaneity of candids, while offering the  traditional images as well.
