Hey there, lovelies, my name is Yana! I am a European living in Michigan, crazy in love with the California coastline, zinfandels, ambient music and a good hearty pho.
I photograph boutique weddings, intimate elopements and adventure couples sessions worldwide. I adore free spirited couples that are stoked to share their adventures together, because exploring new landscapes in hiking boots, on skis or in a wet suit is my jam. I would love to be your personal guide, help you find your epic landscapes and create an unforgettable adventure tailored to the two of you. Having photographed over two hundred love stories, I understand that every wedding and elopement is different, but my main goal is to empower you to follow YOUR vision for an authentic, meaningful wedding celebration.
Your day won’t be filled with unnatural poses and forced smiles. I strive to capture unposed candid moments of your interactions full of raw affection, the split second, when you forget someone is watching, the uninhibited laugh you share with your partner. You two will be able to enjoy the present moment, deepen your love and celebrate your day without unwanted distractions. This is what makes a photograph!
