Congratulations!!! You are engaged and it’s time to enjoy the engagement season and plan your perfect day. Planning also means spending time finding the right people to make your big day as you envision it. Of course photography is a huge part of your wedding, but not just on the day of, but forever. Photography is also an investment not just for the day of, but for years after, as it truly is what will help you relive your memories year after year with your new partner, kids, grandkids and so on.
When choosing your photographer, it is so much more than viewing the merchandise and making the purchase. You have to connect with the person who will spend your whole day with you and make it easy as pie, speaking of pie – I LOVE IT. Therefore I pride myself getting to know my couples as much as I can prior to your wedding day to make sure that one thing you don’t have to worry about is getting those timeless photos you will cherish forever!
So a little about me. I am Anna, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Alexandria, Virginia and serving the DC/MD/VA area. However, if you’re planning a wedding out of the area, I am always available for travel! I am originally from Russia (fluent in Russian) but have been in the DC area since moving to the US. There is seriously no food that I don’t like to cook or eat. I love mom and pop coffee shops and take photos of all my coffee art. I love crime tv shows, dancing around when no one is watching, singing in my car (especially on my way to your wedding) and dreaming of my next travel destination.
I am recently married to my amazing partner in crime, who luckily puts up with my need for proper dishwasher loading, Tupperware organization and bed making. He added three amazing kiddos and two of the craziest pups into my life, and it hasn’t been the same!
My favorite moments of your wedding are when you see each other for the first time, when the bride walks down the aisle, and the honorary dances. I will be crying, or at least tearing up, during one or all of those moments (but I’ll hide it well as if I got something in my eye!).
I can’t wait to meet you, drink some coffee and, of course, capture your timeless memories.
