Candid and Modern Photography for Relaxed Couples.
I'm Ilva and photography is my first passion that I have continued to pursue for the most of my life. I grew up in a small European country Latvia where the beauty was primarily found in tranquil nature. I have lived in several places such as Scotland and Sweden as I have always preferred the rough and northern parts of the world.
I seek to capture the day as it unfolded, the interaction between the couple and their guests, the setting of the celebration.
To make the couple feel more ease when in front of the camera even if that is something they shy away from is a fundamental part of my work. I believe that the most genuine feelings are captured in a candid way, especially in nature.
Throughout the images, you should be able to remember not only what happened, but also how you felt.
