Hello and welcome!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my work. I’m Yana, an international wedding photographer based in Cheshire, UK. Chester is where my home is, but I’ve been travelling and documenting the adventure stories most of my adult life.

With my husband, two teenage children and a schnoodle called Bonnie I share my everyday life and our adventures. 

I love preserving memories of emotions, relationships and surroundings in my images. Telling a real story through an artistic, honest but beautiful photograph is my work and my passion.

For the past several years, one of my Christmas presents to my husband is a book of our family yearly adventures; holidays but also our dog walks, rowing regattas and family picnics are all carefully preserved.

Professional wedding photographer

“Yana became part of our family the day of our wedding. She is incredibly professional whilst putting you completely as ease – she knows how to get that amazing shot!” Anna and Jamie xx

It is my real pleasure to document wedding stories here in the UK and abroad for the past 12 years. And the excitement of capturing that moment is fresh and alluring on every occasion! My aim is to tell the story of your romance, your love and relationship through my unobtrusive, natural images.

I LOVE working with interesting people, people with personalities and people who have stories to tell. I am equally at ease in the company of kayak adventurers, travel enthusiasts, fashion buyers, film buffs, military commanders or jewish rabbis.

My wedding photography is perfect for couples who wants to have a fun wedding, but also look great in pictures.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer who knows how to balance the fun of a wedding day with the classy capture – then get in touch!

I love highlighting in my photographs your friends' qualities for what you love them: great storytellers, shot drinkers, dirty laughter and romantic weepers.

I also want to show bridal... romantic or edgy.

In addition to all of the above, it goes without saying that I employ a wide range of skills to document any wedding:

  • be prepared and organised on the day, so you can relax and enjoy it,
  • be friendly but unobtrusive with your guests, so I can capture their personalities in great candids,
  • be ready to photograph in bright sunshine of a summer's wedding day, at a candle-lit ceremony AND at dusky afternoons of the winter wedding,
  • be skilful to shoot in poorly lit churches and still produce great photographs,
  • be able to summon the romantic mood and peace in the middle of a busy wedding day, so we can create relaxed wedding portraits of the two of you, full of love.

Also I am...

  • a friendly, professional and fully invested in helping you to have an absolutely amazing wedding day day.
  • an appreciater of beauty - an artistic wedding photographer that will put you at ease for relaxed but classy wedding portraits.
  • a hopeless romantic with a soft spot for some old-fashioned gallantry.
  • an adventurer that travelled the world and a wedding photographer that embraces all cultures and traditions and enjoys diverse and international weddings.
  • an emotional observer who wants to capture your family celebrations for generations to come.

You are...

  • Easy going, Sometimes you are can be quite particular about things.
  • Adventurous and brave in your choices.
  • You love little real moments, yet up for striking a dramatic pose for a camera.
  • You love having a laugh, but don’t want the double chins in every shot.
  • You enjoy your hair blowing carefree in the wind as you hug each other in that natural photograph, but don’t want to see the bins in that picture.
  • The idea of posing for photos make you cringe, but your natural photographs still have to look beautiful and be effortless.
  • You love your travels and have many friends who hail from various different countries.
  • You are equally comfortable in an elegant gown as well as tracking shorts and boots.
  • Your wedding is going to be an adventure and you look forward to bringing all your favourite people together for the party.

Does this sound a little bit like you?

Looking for honest, fun and classy photographs? If so, I’d love for you to get in touch!

I think we will get on beautifully!

Warm wishes, Yana x
