“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
— Annie Leibovitz

About me

Hello! I'm Tania, a Europe-based destination wedding photographer. Born and raised in Odessa, Ukraine. My everyday life nowadays is divided between Amsterdam and Florence. Apart from that, I spend a huge part of the year in South Africa. Also available for work in the USA (or anywhere else on the globe). 

Since I was a little child I’ve always loved several things: reading fairy-tales, watching happy people and traveling. As I grew older I found my passion for wedding photography which interestingly enough has united all these loved activities. So here I am, wandering the world and taking photographs of sparkling eyes, blissful smiles and happy moments. I specialize in exciting elopements and weddings, couple and family photoshoots. I've been photographing weddings for more than six years, and I love it more and more each day.

I have a profound love for natural light, true stories, and beauty. Happy to meet you.

My approach

I have a strong documentary approach to my work and try to avoid posing as much as possible. I truly hope you are here because you want unique photographs that capture authentic beauty and emotions, rather than anything staged, scripted or posed. I prefer to photograph things as they unfold naturally, rather than ticking off a checklist of ‘required’ shots. When you look at your photographs, I want you to remember what your wedding day felt like. I want you to recognize yourself.
 

Raw moments without pretense, moments that actually happen, and aren’t set up. Your wedding is a part of your life story, the start of an incredible journey, a day that is a beginning of a lifetime adventure…Let me capture this for your family archive!


I am looking for those couples that don’t just want a wedding photographer but want to have a storyteller who can peek into their love and capture the moments they share together, and maybe even become one of their new best friends.

 

I am in love with couples that are excited about life and excited about each other, and I want to be there to watch you let loose and be yourselves, while you share some of the greatest moments with the person you love.

I am inspired by open-minded, open-hearted, sincere people who are not afraid to share their stories with me.


We’ll probably make a good team if you’re ready to be a little crazy, get a little messy, and be a little vulnerable. If this sounds like the adventure for you, I am so excited and can’t wait to hear from you.
