Hello! My name is Artur, and I am a photographer alongside my love, Kailyn.
My family and I are originally from Ukraine, we moved here when I was about 6 months old. Because of this, I am able to fluently speak English, Ukrainian and Russian.
Kailyn is from here, in the Pacific Northwest. She is the so called "Washingtonian". Absolutely loves the Seahawks (will keep me updated on scores, injuries and news at all times), loves her Starbucks, and her dog.
We first met all the way back in middle school, in a band class. For 4 years, I was Kailyn's big crush. I would lead her on, and then ignore her and so on. If you would've told me back then that we would be together, and would be working together, I would've laughed it off. Truth be told, she was my crush too.
We stumbled across photography by accident actually. We needed that "Easy A" elective class to complete our AA degrees in college and saw that photography was still open. Turns out we fell in love with it; the stories that can be told through a photo, and how we can express our combined personal balances of creativity and technicality. It started as landscape photography, and grew into portrait photography, and then eventually into Weddings.
Now, Kailyn and I are partners in business and in life.
We have a fundamentally strong knowledge and skill base pertaining photography. Kailyn and I share a good balance of creativity and technicality in order to bring out the pure, raw emotions between couples and families.
Every wedding is like a snowflake; they are unique and special in their own way; just like your love with your special someone. Bringing the passion and the love, between you and your special someone, to life is what we love to do. Years down the road, we want you to be able to look back at your photos and relive the day, the emotion, the laughter, the happiness. Photos are timeless and help keep these incredible moments more than just memories.
When we first get the opportunity to meet our clients, we want to get to know you as much as possible; from that (possibly) awkward first date to when you knew that this was your forever. The proposal, the crazy stories, everything; even the little quirks and inside jokes, because let's be honest, that is what makes you, You! And that is what is going to help us bring that pure, raw emotion into your photos.
We do minimal posing, because honestly, posing can be a bit uncomfortable and awkward. We don't want you to feel that way in front of the camera! We want to avoid any awkwardness there may possibly be in front of the camera therefore we aren't only your photographers, we are your hype team! It is Your special day and on that special day, you deserve to be You! So allow us to capture the butterflies in your stomach, the excitement in your heart, the sparkle in your eye when you lay eyes on your forever someone!
