Sviatlana Photography | About

Hello, my name is Sviatlana Torres. For me, photography is more than just a passion, it is my lifelong love! I cannot imagine myself without being able to express my creativity through a camera. While creating an image, I become totally immersed in the magic of the moment. I enjoy every second of photographing the love and happiness of others!

I was born in Belarus, but studied art in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was there, among beautiful cathedrals and inspiring architecture that I developed my passion for photography. At that time I began taking photography classes and assisting professional photographers with weddings.

When I moved to the United States I decided to transform my love for photography into a career! I immediately started attending photography classes in San Diego, CA. After finishing my college, I am now doing photography in the Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads areas.

I strive to memorialize every photo shoot or wedding with a beautiful, unique set of images that captures the endearing moments, happiness, and love of my clients. I do my utmost to capture those special moments, creating images that can be treasured for a lifetime. I blend portrait photography and photojournalism in my photographic style. I also use artistic portrait methods and natural shots.

Before photographing a wedding, I always scout out perfect scenes and make a plan for my shots to achieve gorgeous wedding day pictures. It is endlessly fulfilling to provide others with memorable photographs to help remind them of their most endearing moments!
