I consider myself extremely lucky because i get to work with amazing people and capture their most precious memories.
Here are some of the things they have said about their experience:

We were so happy to have been able to find Anya for our wedding! It was through sheer luck that we were introduced to her and feel so happy that it worked out the way it did. I feel it is important to have a connection with your vendors, especially if they are going to play such an important role on your big day. Any worries I may have had before meeting her disappeared as soon as she introduced herself with a big warm smile and was truly interested in getting to know me and my fiancé (now husband). She worked with us to make our vision come to life and truly became part of our day. Anya has the wonderful ability of being professional and super friendly and caring. She mixed right in with my girls and made me feel comfortable being photographed. Our wedding day pictures turned out drop dead gorgeous and I am STILL gushing over them! Her love and passion for what she does shines through in her pictures and I would not hesitate one second to recommend her to anyone!

When we started looking for a wedding photographer, we felt overwhelmed because no one seemed to stand out to us until we found Anya and saw her work. Her photography style is unbelievably romantic and beautiful and the way she plays with natural lighting is nothing short of magical. I was nervous about being photographed because I'm generally shy and feel awkward with a camera pointed at me, but none of this was an issue with Anya at all. She was encouraging and funny and constantly excited about the shots she was getting. She came early on the wedding day and even helped us with some of the setting up (which she didn't have to do at all). She captured beautiful candid shots of family and friends and the venue, and when we went outdoors for the picturesque shots she knew exactly what lighting and setting she wanted us in and led us around the grounds accordingly. At the same time, the photos don't look forced or posed because she talked to us and made us laugh and so my husband and I ended up looking very natural in our pictures. I can't recommend her more highly and I'm so grateful we found her.

As we began our search [for a wedding photographer], we almost lost our hope in finding the photographer that will truly represent us on our day until Anya came along. She was the nicest and sweetest photographer any couple will die to have on their wedding day Our wedding took place in Pasadena on December 2015 and what an excellent decision we have made in getting her as our photographer. She was so much fun and easy to get along with. Me and my husband have no experience of some sort in posing for pics but yet she managed to bring out the best in us including our daughter. We can totally tell she loved her craft. She was very creative and professional and coordinated the entire shoot seamlessly with all of us enjoying the day. Her work is truly an art. The digital uploads were so easy to manage that sharing our pics with all our loved ones have never been this easy. We will forever treasure memories captured through her lens. Anya is definitely a Picasso in her craft. Not only did she deliver pictures but a story that will last a lifetime.

I don't even know where to begin... Our photos are incredible, fun, amazing, breathtaking- she captured so many special moments. She was super easy to work with, detail oriented during prep but not over bearing. She arrived early on the day of and handled all of the little details while we were running around like mad women still setting up! She was fun, light-hearted yet professional which helped put everyone at ease and feel comfortable. We are not very traditional nor conventional and she worked with our personalities instead of trying to box us into poses. My wife and I are two very quirky women and can't take much of anything too seriously and she let us be ourselves and we had the best time. My family is huge and she managed to wrangle us all in for the big group photo and got everyone smiling in it!! That is no small task!
I am so happy we found her and chose her to photograph our wedding. I absolutely love our photos! My wife just said- "Best person ever... excluding my wife obviously" haha I think that sums it up!
