seaside portraits in crimea

From the Bride, Anna – “For Vovo and I’s wedding, we decided what we wanted were photos that emphasized tenderness, feelings, and our relationship. I always love the delicate and soft pictures, filled with light, where nothing is superfluous and there are not too many fancy details – just love and nature. I came across a magazine about modern weddings in which I learned about the delicate and airy style known as Fine Art, and I realized, here it is, what we were looking for!”

“After many trips to Bridal salons, I realized that there wasn’t a dress that really reflected me there. That’s when my mom decided to sew! This was very precious and exciting, when the mother of the bride sews her wedding dress, it took four months! Every drape, every fold was placed by a caring mother’s hands, every detail is thought out with love, and it was a special thrill to wear it on this most important day.”

“After a short deliberation we decided that our  formal wedding day, with the feast and the guests would will be at home, in Rostov, and then we’ll go elsewhere to take portraits and where else could be so beautiful and unique as the Crimea?!”
