Your story is unique as you. I'd love to tell it elegantly, beautifully, and timelessly . . . through photographs.

I'm a 30+ year old entreprenuer, with a physical studio in Sacramento and a virtual office in San Francisco. I photograph wedding as far as Lake Tahoe, Napa, Healdsburg, Monterey and Carmel, and of course my favorites will always be in the heart of San Francisco. Funny enough I've picked up photography my senior year of college when I decided to spend an extra summer abroad to pursue a Master's Degree. My MBA never happened on paper, but I've been happilly running a business for most of my twenties. 

Like all life's best adventures, photography is something I stumbled upon while living abroad after college years. Working as a full time writer, I not only wanted to tell stories through words, but also through photos. When my writing contract ended, photography became my new full time venture. 

I learned my craft from other established artists and worked with some of the finest photographers to cultivate my skills. I'm particularly drawn to beautiful light and use both the outdoors and indoors to find the best light that flatters my subjects.

My style is a mixture of artistic directing, story telling and capturing moments as they unfold. I believe directing is helpful to you and your fiancé, so you feel like models at my shoots, and as an artist, I believe in taking the extra time to find most beautiful light. During the ceremony and reception, I take on journalistic approach, capturing the day as it unfolds.

I’m Yuliya, of European descent and with my heart left in San Francisco. Besides being a wedding photographer, I'm a musician, an avid coffee shop goer and a lover of big cities. "Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life..." is a quote by Mark Twain displayed on my desk. I love early mornings, wardrobe styling, beautiful light and the busy street corners of New York.
