I approach photography as the mastery of recognizing when to pause for a moment and to eternalize it—to tear it out of the clutches of time and save it forever in an image. My mission is to exhibit why we should cherish every moment of our life. I want to convince the viewer to treasure not just the photographic remnants of the past, but also the people that surround us now, in the present.
Each couple creates a wedding unique to them and extraordinary in its own way. The bride and groom spend countless hours pouring over each detail – I devote myself to exploring and capturing it to the most minute detail. With my work I strive to reflect on the romantic spirit of the wedding day, unveiling emotions, spontaneity and beauty. This kind of occasion deserves to be remembered for years to come.
LOVE STORY MOMENTS
I love to turn the engagement session into an adventure for the couple. My photography style is juxtaposing people with nature. Some of my favorite contexts are scenic views, lakes, ocean shores, sunsets and sunrises. Every day I am inspired to record stories through my camera lens thanks to unique people and special places. I am always on a quest to find the next little-explored place off the beaten track. There, the couple and I become friends through traveling and working together to weave their love story.
BESIDE PHOTOGRAPHY WHICH I PERSONALLY CARRY OUT, I ALSO WORK TOGETHER WITH MY VIDEO CREW
Me and my team beside wedding photography, do the videography as well. We are 5 men team – 2 photographers and 3 videographers who are able to cover your photography and videography needs with combining our synergy in efficient and productive way. Our goal in videography is to make the viewer feel as they are in the video themselves while watching it. We are proud to use the latest technologies for capturing smooth video in 4k quality from the ground and from the air where each shot will be moving and pleasant for the eye. But most important, we want to capture the captivating story of the couple’s love.

Taras was very creative for our photoshoot. It turned out way better than expected! He knew exactly what to say to get us into the best pose. It was very professional and fun! Everyone went wild over our photos- people said we looked like models! I would recommend Taras to anyone! He's great! 11/10.
Taras and his team did a very good job taking pictures and videos at our wedding. At first I was worried that I will not feel very comfortable with a team only of guys taking pictures at our wedding, but he made us and the whole crew feel relaxed and fun to work with.
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
Not only a professional and talented photographer and videographer, Taras is a pleasure to be around. Working with him was very simple and a breeze - the entire process up to our wedding he was clear and efficient, asking what we wanted and guiding us through what was needed. On our big day, he was unfailingly polite and friendly to everyone he came across, and invisible most of the time. He gave us and our guests space without overwhelming our party, and still capturing every brilliant moment of the day.
Taras delivered a beautiful set of images that capture many very happy memories - I'm sure we will continue to enjoy looking through them for years to come. It was crucial for us to enjoy the results of all the effort we'd put into planning for months so we chose Taras Yasniy. Get on with enjoying the most on such an honored day of your life. It's the day your "I do" becomes a "we do" - and "we do" recommend Taras Yasniy for your weddings photography and videography needs.
