Wedding in Paris

So the winter has arrived!
This year it began a bit earlier. I've just had a thought if this Christmas will be the White Christmas and it started snowing. Now I look through the window and it seems like I am in a northern country, not in England...
But on the pictures I am working on now there is a wonderful warm Autumn day in Paris! Yes, Paris again but now the wedding photoshoot. I hurry up to share with you new photographs.
See also engagement photos of this couple that I uploaded earlier.

Love Story. Prague

I already wrote about Nataliya and Alexander.
Now I want to share with you their Love Story.
They just walked around the city, enjoyed themselves, photographed each other; I followed them and captured the moments and their emotions.

Autumn portrait photoshoot

Last Saturday I had a portrait shoot of two sisters, the weather was fantastic and we've decided to shoot at the Markeaton Park in Derby. That was a right decision because the colours of leaves were amazing. Charming girls, good weather and the beauty of Autumn - what else is needed for great shots!

Wedding of Ali and Mike

I promised myself that from every wedding I will share, intitially, 10 photos, and later, when I have more spare time, put to the blog more photos, slideshows and photobooks. But every time it is getting more and more difficult to choose these 10. Once again, I had a very special couple to shoot. Ali and Mike surprised not only myself, but I think also all the guests. Everything was thought and prepared in details, with special ideas, creativity and excellent sense of humor. Ali and Mike wanted to make this day unique and unforgetable, and I am sure they managed to do this: bright colours of the wedding - green and orange, very interesting bunches of flowers for the bridesmaids and, of course, the most beautiful flowers for Ali, bride's dress and lots of surprises for the guests! And, of course, Ali and Mike themselves, their true and sincere feelings, lots of positive emotions, were fantastic.

Sorry, I should stop writing now and, finally, show you more pictures from the wedding....

Wedding of Natalia & Alexander

Well, it seems I am engaged to photograph in Prague more and more. Last year I already shooted and that was great experience. This September, another couple decided to get married in the Czech Republic and invited me to photograph them.

Again, I've got an astonishing couple, Natalia and Alexander, who chose one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. When I saw Natalia on the wedding day, I was amazed how much her wedding dress and style were suitable for the fairy-tale atmosphere of Prague. The photos remind me romance of past centuries.

Nataly and Alex, thanks a lot for these great days in Prague! Special thanks to the groom for patience :)

Wedding of Berenice and Matthew

Today I would like to show you some new photographs talken back in August. A wonderful couple, Berenice and Matthew. Looking at them, the word "tenderness" comes to my mind.

No more words, apart from that everything was going on in a beautiful place, Makeney Hall in Derbyshire, and the weather fortunately allowed us to to have a walk in a small but very cozy garden. So, look to the pictures...

The first photo is ready now :)

Wedding of Nicola and Damon

Another amazing couple.

Nicola is one of the most emotional brides that I ever photographed this year. Everything started from that enchanting smile during her preparations, then there were tears of happiness during the ceremony itself, then complete joy and tenderness during the walk.

I hurry up to share first photographs from this wedding. Nicola and Damon, thank you very much for the time you contributed for the photosession and for your sincere emotions!

Keep in touch!

Wedding of Anna and Sergey

First photographs from another wedding, on 17 July

Anna and Sergey are a surprising couple. When I first met them I did not ask them how long the were together before the wedding, but it was obvious they adore each other. During the wedding day I was told they're together for 10 years... Their eyes were shining with love, tenderness and care of each other.

Anna and Sergey, I wish you to keep these feelings for ever, I'm sure it will be so! And to all couples I photographed, to be in love and happy in 10 or even more years!

A few photographs that will remind you about your wonderful day...

Keep in touch!

Wedding of Rachel and Daniel

To continue updates on my recent photography work, I'd like to show some photos from another recent wedding, the special day for Rachel and Daniel, that happened in the beginning of July.

The bride and groom were brilliant, the ceremony was organised in a wonderful place with its own character, and the weather was definitely in the right mood. Rachel and Daniel, and the atmosphere of the wedding helped me to create the pictures attached here.

Wedding Susanna & Michael

This July was very busy - I had wedding orders (and not only weddings) both in the UK and abroad.

Here are some photos from the wedding of a beautful couple, Susanna and Michael. Although the groom was quite serious during the day, I managed to catch some of his smiles :)

It was quite hot on 9th July so we tried to choose shade or indoor for photography. Some photographs were taken in a palace which was deliberately hired for this.

Guys, thank you for your patience and help during your photosession - I'd like to give you a pleasure with first photographs from your wedding!

Wedding albums and books


I am often asked about what sort of albums and books I offer within my wedding photo packages. Normally I bring all my example books and albums on a meeting with clients, but I think it is also good idea to give you information here, on my blog.

So, basically, I offer both wedding albums and books of different design, size and amount of pages.

The albums are of three slightly different design.
The first one is of original cover design and photo pages without mounts

A wedding trip to Prague

Last year's wedding photo session in Prague was very successful the couple enjoyed the walk and liked the photos and slideshow and I enjoyed that shoot as well. Following that tradition, I will photograph another wedding in Prague this Summer/Autumn.

Prague is a very cosy and beautiful city, being a fantastic place for photography. I am going to be there from 27th August to 5th September and if you'd like me to shoot your portrait, wedding or love story in this wonderful place - give me a shout.

Wedding Helen and Nick

Just noticed that I mostly show photographs of brides or of both bride and groom, but not of grooms :)

For a change, I'll start from a groom's photo now.

This is another April's wedding this year. Initially we planned to start taking photos of Nick's preparation first. However, he arrived to the hotel later, just when the bride was about to put a wedding dress on, so I popped in to his room just for 5 minutes to take a few shots. Here is one of them.

Some photos are attached below.
More photos of this wedding I'm going to present as pages of a photobook later.

See you soon...

Wedding Darya & Sergey

A week ago I went to a friends' wedding. The couple was beautiful, the weather was excellent, so I could not resist to take out my camera ...
Here are some photos from the wedding :)

Wedding Irina and Aleksey

And another April's couple

It was difficult to have a walk outdoor after the ceremony because of heavy rain and wind, but this did not stop the bride and groom to enjoy their wonderful day. There is a saying that rain in wedding day is a good sign :)

This time I've decided to share with you pictures from the whole wedding day - this is my normal coverage on weddings

Feedback from a happily married couple

Wedding in Prague, 10/10/2009

I recently received a feedback from a couple who I photographed in October last year. You already saw DVD slideshows from their Love Story and wedding - I posted them to the blog in January. I'm glad that they like the photos - it seems I managed to capture their emotions :)

Hi Elena! Now we will add to the box of your most complimentary comments on your work. You know already that you’re just superb. But what is the name of the person who can bring you to your past and make you feeling the same emotions of the most wonderful moments of your life again and again? The name is Wizard (or Enchantress as you are). Elena, the things you do is real Magic! We would like to express our gratitude to you and your husband Yury for that it was very comfortable and easy to be shot by you. And as a result, we’ve got amazing photos that we can’t stop going through! Once again many thanks and respect!

Irina and Michael

P.S. You’re always desired guests in our home!

Argentine Tango

I enjoy the argentinin tango, and not only to watch but also to dance. In my opinion, this is the only dance where it is possible to express all the feelings: joy, sadness, passion, love, tenderness... This dance means a lot to me, it completely changed my life :) Unfortunately, now I don't have enough time to dance as much as I used to dance, but have a chance to photograph tango, which is also good.

Here is one of the photographs from a recent tango shoot

And kids again

Just at the beginning of this year I photographed another family with a child, also in a studio. Just to share with you several pictures...

Thursday, 14 January 2010


I'd like to show you something not related to weddings - a little baby, 6 months old, who I photographed with her parents at the end of December in studio. She is lovely, isn't she?

Despite her young age she behaved perfectly during the shoot and it the whole photosession went very well. I think we've got good results from a 2 hours shoot - see more photographs below

Wedding Prague Irina&Michael

And not holding you very long after the Love Story video, I'd like to share the slide show from the same wedding in Prague.

The dressing style of the couple was so much in harmony with Prague's architecture style, for a moment it seemed to me that everything happens not in 21st century but in those old days when people used carriages...

The couple here looks slightly different, not like in the Love Story, but the same tender feelings remain between them

Love Story Prague Irina&Michael

Finally I found some free time to share with you a Love Story video of Irina and Michael.

The photographs may be viewed in the previews post or on on my web site in the Love Story Prague section

Here is the impression that the couple got from the photoshoot:

"After we've just watched the video 8 times, I've come to the conclusion that you're very cool! This is so lovely and unreal that we want to watch it again and again! It feels like are are in Prague again, and again live throught those emotions that were overhelming us that moment! To be honest, we did not know that we look so good :) Our great respect for your wonderful job, guys! We cannot wait for photographs from the wedding itself! You're superb!

Irina and Michael

No more words, we just put the video to repeat :)

(During the photoshoot in Prague I was assisted by my husband, Yury. That was a very pleasant job: We not only photographed everything as we planned, but also found new friends)
