We approach photography as the art of recognizing the perfect moment to freeze in time and immortalize—a fleeting instant saved forever in an image. Our mission is to showcase the importance of cherishing every facet of life. We aspire to persuade viewers to value not only the photographic remnants of the past but also the people who surround us in the present.
Each couple creates weddings unique to them, each extraordinary in its own way. The brides and grooms invest countless hours perfecting every detail – we devote ourselves to exploring and capturing even the tiniest intricacies. Through our work, we aim to capture the romantic essence of wedding days, revealing emotions, spontaneity, and beauty. Such occasions deserve to be eternally cherished in our memories.
LOVE STORY MOMENTS
We love to turn engagement sessions into adventures for couples. Our photography style juxtaposes people with nature. Some of our favorite contexts include scenic views, lakes, ocean shores, sunsets, and sunrises. Every day, we are inspired to capture stories through our camera lenses, thanks to unique people and special places. We are always on a quest to find the next little-explored place off the beaten track. There, we and the couples become friends through traveling and working together to weave their love stories.
We, in addition to wedding photography, also specialize in videography. We are a team of five – two photographers and three videographers. Together, we seamlessly cover your photography and videography needs, combining our synergy in an efficient and productive manner. Our videography goal is to immerse the viewer, making them feel like they are part of the video as they watch it. We take pride in using the latest technologies to capture smooth, 4k-quality video, both from the ground and the air, ensuring that every shot is visually pleasing. However, most importantly, we are dedicated to capturing the captivating love story of each couple.

I genuinely cannot believe these photos turned out as good as they did for the price we paid! Well worth it!❤️ My fiancé and I have never gotten professional photos done before, but Taras & Alla made us so comfortable and got great natural shots. We got engaged on a road trip and decided we wanted photos taken in one of our favorite spots on the Oregon coast! With only TWO days notice, they were able to make time for us! They went above and beyond with hiking to our locations, spending a great amount of time with us and being so personable. Such a kind family that perfects their work. Thank you!!
Colorful and timeless photos, wonderful people
Taras and Alla are incredible photographers and wonderful people. We wanted colorful and timeless photos and that’s definitely what we got. We are incredibly happy we used them for both our engagement photos and wedding photos (highly highly recommend doing that). They were also very supportive on the wedding day. I really don’t love standing for so many pictures in a row especially trying to wrangle family and Alla was so sweet and encouraging. Great value, beautiful pictures! We’ll use them again if we can.
I was immediately impressed by Taras from our first phone conversation. My husband and I were initially skeptical about hiring a photographer all the way across the country (Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine), but Taras' photographs were some of the best we had ever seen, so we took a leap of faith.
Taras was around for our wedding weekend to look over the venue before the ceremony. He became part of the family for the weekend. Taras was there to lend a hand with all the craziness of last minute preparations and became such an integral part of our wedding because he was open to be! The experience we shared during our wedding weekend was more than we could have ever imagined from our photographer because of Taras' warmth, flexibilty, and genuine joy to be a part of our wedding. Hiring Taras was hiring an experience; an experience that started a friendship which we hope will last for many photographs to come
My husband and I had such an amazing photography experience with Taras and Alla. From the very beginning until the end of the day, they kept on amazing us. It was such an ease to take photos, they were very flexible with us, paid attention to details, helped us to feel confident about ourselves, and made it natural for us to smile and be genuine. Photography did not seem like an extra task, we were just going about our day, enjoying every moment of the wedding, while Taras and Alla were capturing our special moments. Our whole wedding party was amazed by the skills, friendliness and professionalism. We received our pictures faster than expected. Every one of our photos is a top quality shot, beautifully done, truly representing how we felt and looked.
