Our concept of family naturally includes our spouse, mother and father, children, aunts, uncles and in-laws. However, sometimes we also consider our pets to be a part of the family, even to the point that we would like them to be a part of our family photos! Sometimes, we even want them to be a part of our engagement and wedding photos too! As a professional photographer, I have on many occasions done photo shoots with families and their pets or even a single owner and his or her pet. It can be a challenge to take great photos with pets because they don't even know they are in a photo shoot! Nevertheless, I am always very patient and get the job done correctly and to the satisfaction of my clients! This couple in these photos wanted an engagement photo shoot and they brought their dog along for the photo. I have to say that their dog was exceptionally easy to work with. Maybe I should take back what I wrote earlier because this dog seemed like he know he was getting photographed! So whether it be family photography, engagement photography, wedding photography, individual portraits, or any other type of portrait, pets are welcome with Sviatlana Photography!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well! I just wanted to talk to the guys a little bit. Are you considering proposing to that special someone in your life? Here's an idea that you may not have considered. You could propose to her during a couples photo shoot. In my photography career, this has happened while I took couples portraits on multiple occasions. Sometimes the groom-to-be lets me know about his plan beforehand and sometimes leaves it as a surprise. I always love doing couples photography during these kinds of events because it is amazing to see the future bride's face light up with happiness and love! When you do this you automatically transform an already special event - a photo shoot to capture the love between you and your girlfriend - into a fantastic event; your bride and groom portrait session (perhaps once of several)! Think about the memories, captured in portraits, of her face the moment you ask her the question and present her with a ring! I can promise you that it suddenly becomes amazing! The photo here shows the most recent time this occurred during one of my portrait sessions. I can still remember how the tone of the photo session changed once he asked her to marry him and she accepted. The rest of the photo session was one of the happiest that I have ever been a part of or seen! So take it as a suggestion from me, that proposing during a couples photo shoot can have truly fantastic results.

Art of colors in a wedding photography https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/6/localweddingphotographers

Today I would like to talk a little about the color in your photographs. Believe it or not the color scheme a wedding photographer chooses to capture in your portraits can make as much difference as the background, the wedding dress, your smiling faces, and the lighting. We know from basic art class about the warm colors, cool colors, and the winter, spring, summer, and autumn colors. Using these combinations can also be used in photography to convey feeling! In the end, your portraits can be made more memorable because of the feelings the colors bring! When I can, I select the color schemes in my photography carefully to enhance the feelings and expressions of the bride and groom. Here are three examples about how I accomplish this.

            In the first example of a wedding portrait, I used a very earthy color scheme with delicious browns, subtle greens, fluffy whites, and tans. Combined with the groom's suit, the bride's gorgeous gown, and their beautiful expressions, these colors produce a very classical look to their portrait giving it the feeling of eternal love!

I used a strong, vibrant green background in the second example of a wedding portrait to match the powerful expressions of love of the bride and groom in the photo. This spring color choice brings out the bride's eyes, hair, dress and skin tones, while matching the intensity of the groom's suit. Together, it conveys a feeling of intense, strong and vibrant love!

 

Finally, in the bride portrait above, I used a combination of yellow and golden hues by using just the right background during sunset. This complements the bride's beautiful, happy smile. Also, it matches her bouquet, her dress, and contrasts with her hair and eyes. Altogether the colors give you a warm and happy feeling; it's exactly the feeling you might imagine that the bride has during her wedding!

Having fun during a wedding photo session is an essential part of your wedding day! https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/6/virginiaweddingphotographer

         Preparing for your wedding can be very stressful. You need to select your dress, pick out the cake, the band, worry about the decorations and the catering, pick out just the right venue, get all the paperwork in order, and of course working with the photographer. Some couples become so wrapped up in preparing for their wedding that they forget that the occasion is supposed to be fun for them! Remember to relax and enjoy! Believe it or not, if you spent more time enjoying it, your wedding portraits will be better because the photographer will have more opportunities to capture you while you are smiling and having fun!

            I try to make the process preparing for the photographic aspects of my clients' weddings as easy and painless as possible so that they need not worry so much. I spend the time to explain how I will visit the venue, pick out the best angles and spots from which to take photos. I will also go over my client's itinerary for their wedding day so that I can be in the right place at the right time to get the most memorable portraits. I listen to my clients to see what kind of themes they want to have in their photos and what they would like me to focus on. I do my best to take the difficulty out of wedding photography for my clients so they can focus on having fun and enjoying one of the most special days of their lives!

Preparation for an upcoming wedding photo session https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/5/photographer-virginia-beach

People have asked me what I do to prepare for an upcoming wedding photo shoot. Wedding photography is my passion so naturally, there is an enormous amount of work I put into creating absolutely the best photos that I can for your wedding! If I didn't I would not feel comfortable calling myself a professional wedding photographer. So it all begins with a consultation with the engaged couple. I find out what style of wedding they are having (will it be a classic wedding, more modern, or perhaps something else); the location, time of year, and time of day (these give me an idea of what lighting conditions will be like); the general schedule for the wedding, when and where the reception will be, and if the couple has set aside specific time for portraits; how many people will be attending, what relatives will be there, and where they will be sitting (as well as where the bride and groom will be sitting); and what the bride's and bride's maids dresses look like (it make a difference in how I set up my photo shots). I will also discuss with the couple in our consultation if they want any specific types of photos, such as beach wedding photography.

After this, I visit the location to find all the right angles for the photos I will take, learn about the lighting conditions so I can choose just the right equipment and lenses for the wedding and get a feel about how my photo taking activities will fit with the schedule. After this, I plan, given the wedding schedule, the best times for bride and groom portraits, family portraits, action shots (taken of you and your guests while you celebrate), and of course the ceremony itself. In a follow-up consultation with you before the wedding, we will discuss my plans for photographing your wedding and you can voice any concerns you have, make suggestions, or discuss anything that may have been left out. Then everything will be ready for photography of your wedding! I'll be there bright and early ready to create photos that you and your children and family will cherish forever!

So there is a great deal of preparation I put into getting ready for your wedding! I do so because I truly believe in providing you the very best that I can!

Family and Newborn photography https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/5/family-and-newborn-photography

   Family photos can be a very happy time but it can also be very stressful. You need to gather up the kids, have them put on nice clothes (even when they do everything in their power to complain and avoid it), and get them to smile and stand still for photos while their internal energy would rather have them running around like crazy. This is on top of the work you go through to get ready yourself! Yet, family photos is something that you will be able to share with your children throughout the years and something that they will come to appreciate too! Naturally, you will want the very best family portraits you can get. I have a few suggestions for you along those lines.

   First, in family photography, the best portraits that I have been able to produce frequently have a family which decided to dress in matching clothes. Most often this has been casual but nice button up shirts and slacks for the guys and dresses for the girls. The matching clothes help the portrait show the unique family bond and togetherness!

  Second, for young children, it is very helpful if you bring a friend or other family member who will stand behind me to help capture the attention of your younger children. These may seem simple, but you would be surprised about how many families I photograph who come unprepared for their photo shoot!

    Maybe you are just starting your family. Having a baby can be the happiest and glorious of all of life's achievements. It's the moment you realize that you have the privilege of raising another person in love kindness, to teach them wisdom and ethics, and to set them on a path to a bright future! Aside from wedding and family photography, I am also a newborn photographer. I can help you remember these moments in beautiful newborn baby photos and portraits. Generally speaking, newborn photography usually involves setting up a sort of set in which your newborn is the focus, much like a traditional photo studio portrait. In a newborn photo session with me, we will pick out just the right sets and props to show-off how beautiful and wonderful your baby is and to create lasting memories for you and you family!

Engagement photography https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/5/engagement-photography Engagement photographyEngagement photographySometimes in strong engagement photography strong the photo can be enhanced by giving it an artistic dimension. The angle gives the photo uniqueness and the flowers give balance so that your eyes are attracted to the happy couple!

 

He proposed to you and you said Yes! Now you are engaged! Congratulations! Now what? Well, getting some beautiful and romantic engagement portraits of you and your groom to be would be a good start! What better way to memorialize that happy time in your life than having a set of portraits you can always look back on and cherish.  What you want your engagement photos to be like is a lot more flexible than at a wedding itself. In your engagement photo session with me, you can be on the beach (Virginia Beach during a glorious sunrise for instance), in a serene forest, in downtown surroundings, or even at your home. It's up to you! If you choose a downtown setting there are several areas in downtown Norfolk that make for great photos. Alternatively, there are many cities in the surrounding area that serve just as well. Be sure to wear nice clothes to match the overall feel that you want for you engagement portraits: casual, fun, formal, elegant, classical, and so forth. As a professional wedding photographer I will place you and your future husband in fun and romantic poses for you portraits, so come ready to show your smiles and your love for each other!

Wedding Photography Consultation https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/4/virginia-wedding-photographer

 

Hello everyone. Your friendly Virginia Beach Photographer here again! As a professional photographer, I am often asked by my clients what to expect when they first meet me for a wedding photography consultation in preparation for your wedding. What is the purpose of a consultation in the first place you may ask. Basically, your wedding photography consultation with me is to ensure that I can prepare to give you the greatest photos and portraits of your wedding as possible! In the consultation we will go over such things as were your wedding and reception will take place and the time of day. Knowing whether the location is in a church, at Virginia Beach (or another beach), or elsewhere and knowing the time of day will help me understand lighting conditions at your wedding. I will also be able to visit the location before your wedding to get a better sense of the best photo angles and ambient light levels. If your wedding will be in the evening I can bring special lighting equipment to make dramatic night shots (such portraits are especially beautiful on the beach)!

            We will also discuss the schedule of events in your wedding. With this information, I can get a better idea of when to take portraits, group photos, family portraits, bride portraits, groom portraits, and when to mingle among your guests to get action shots of their smiling faces while they share in the joy of your wedding day! I can even make some suggestions for optimal times to take photos. We can even schedule a separate day especially for bride and groom portraits at another location (I can suggest many that I know of which make for great wedding portraits). My goal is to capture your happy memories in photos without adding a schedule burden to your wedding!

            Other information that we would discuss is what family members will be there. It would even be helpful for you to bring some photos of your relatives to show me. Information on where they will be sitting and the general layout of your wedding will also be helpful. This way, I will be able to recognize them and get several great photos of them as well; not to mention family photos! And what about the style of your wedding? Are you going for an elegant or classical wedding, a more modern style, a realistic style, or something else? I can tailor my photography to match the style you are trying to achieve in your wedding! We can certainly discuss this during the consultation! Finally, we will have some discussion of any special types of portraits you would like. For example, would you want some portraits of you and your new husband during a beautiful sunset, on the beach, or among a gorgeous grove of trees? During our consultation, we will discuss some of these possibilities! As affordable photography goes, I can provide the best while not breaking your wedding budget!

Wedding photography https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/4/virginia-beach-wedding-photographer Every bride wants to look gorgeous for her wedding day and she wants beautiful wedding portraits to match! For many women, their wedding day is one of the most special days of their lives and is the culmination of many of their dreams since childhood. Often months will be spent in preparation choosing the right wedding dress, the right location, the right decorations, the right music, and the right venue. For such an important wedding day, the engagement photos, bridal portraits, wedding portraits, and family portraits, should be as beautiful as possible so that the bride, groom, and family members can look back in time and remember how wonderful a day it was! As such it is important to choose the right wedding photographer; the one who will capture your dreams, the love between your new husband, and the happiness of family members on both sides of the family.

            I am a wedding photographer, and specifically a Virginia Beach Wedding photographer who values the emphasis that brides place in their wedding day and I do my very best to fully capture the joy and happiness of your wedding day. Whether this means doing beach wedding photography or even photography in a small church, I tailor my methods to meet the effort you put into making your wedding special! The photos here give a good example of how I do my work. In these bridal portraits, for every pose and background I considered what the bride wanted to convey in her photos. In some cases that was elegance like in the photo of the bride with an umbrella. I purposefully posed her in this way to emphasize the classical elegance of her dress, complexion, and form. I chose the colonial era background to give beautiful contrast against her dress and to give the entire portrait a classical feel!

            In one of the photos, I chose to place a focus the bride's beauty and dress by having her sit down on some stairs and draping her dress over the steps. The marble steps complement the bride's dress and bring out the bride's complexion while the door at the top and greenery on the sides cause the eye to be naturally drawn directly to her so that you can see how lovely she is in her dress! And this makes sense, doesn't it? The bride's beauty should be the center of everybody's attention!

            Some brides really love warm colors in their bridal portraits. Accordingly, in one portrait I chose a background of red-barked trees. I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but in the end it was lovely! The warm red and browns of the trees give the entire portrait a feeling that love is in the air and that the bride is overflowing with happiness. I had her pose with a happy gaze off to the side so that more of her beautiful face could be seen and so that you could better see her gorgeous dark hair and eyes!

            As a professional photographer, I always work with my clients to try and capture exactly the feelings they want in their wedding photos and portraits. This is my passion and I am greatly satisfied when my clients are happy with their photos!

Maternity photography https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/4/photographer-virginia-beach Though I primarily focus on wedding photography, I also love to do maternity photography. It gives me a warm loving feeling to do the maternity photos of couples because of the great love and affection they show each other! Whenever I do such portraits I always think to myself that the future mother and father practically shine with excitement and anticipation for when their baby will be born. If you are thinking of doing a maternity photo shoot, you will want to look your very best. After all, you want to look at your photos in years to come and remember those days of anticipation with great fondness! In that spirit, I have a few tips here to help you prepare for your photo shoot and to get the best possible portraits you can!

 

Ladies, let me start with you. Nothing shows that you are an expectant mother more than your belly and in your photos you want to emphasize that. And how do you do that? With your dress of course! What I have noticed in my years of experience is that wearing a long, flowing, vibrant, and light colored dress often does the best job of accentuating your belly and bringing out your own beauty at the same time. If your dress is too dark in can hide your belly and make the photo seem less happy. On the other hand, a light, vibrant color reflects happiness and joy and that is what you want those who see your photo to feel! Plus, if I take a photo of you near flowers you will like a wonderful as a flower yourself! A white dress is also very lovely because with a white background (like a marble building with great architecture for instance) your photo will look like it was taken in heaven! Pants can work too, but I suggest that you avoid blue jeans.

 

Along with your dress, be sure to wear lovely shoes. But be sure that they are as comfortable as possible since you don’t want a lot of pain on such an important day. There are other obvious things that you can do; most are obvious but you would be surprised how many people come to their photo shoot unprepared! Of course have your hair and nails done and make your selection of style carefully. Bring some extra makeup with you to the maternity photo shoot just in case you need to cover smudges.  One really nice touch is that you can have a bouquet of flowers with you. There are so many fantastic poses I can put you in with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers! The flowers highlight your beauty, bring balance to the photos, and enhance the overall happy feel of your portrait. I have seen some women wear a wreath of flowers in their hair. The effect in the photos is remarkable, making the expectant mother glow from head to toe!

 

Now some advice for the guys! In your wife’s maternity photos you should appear masculine, but loving; strong, but gentle. First of all, I suggest a nice pair of slacks that fit you well. Baggy slacks make you look sloppy. And for goodness sakes don’t wear cross-trainers with your slacks on photo shoot day! Instead, invest in a nice pair of dress shoes (not too formal though). As a Virginia Beach photographer (one of the few affordable photographers at that) I am amazed how often this mistake is made! Avoid casual t-shirts and instead wear a button-up shirt or a polo shirt. And guys, make sure your shirt either matches your wife’s dress or complements it! Not only will your maternity photos together look fantastic, but your wife will truly appreciate your effort! As with a bouquet of flowers for your wife, having a dressy jacket with you as a prop goes a long way. Having you pose lovingly with your wife while having your jacket slung over your shoulder brings a fun uniqueness to the photo! And of course, there are a thousand other ways I can pose you with a jacket together with your beautiful wife!

 

Finally, there are some things you can do to draw attention to your baby! If you bring an ultrasound I can include it in your portrait. I can do the same if you bring a pair of baby boots or even a chalkboard on which you write a loving message for your future child! A beautiful maternity portrait of you being kissed by your husband while you are holding an ultrasound of your baby will show him or her years down the road that you were eagerly waiting for the moment when you would meet; anticipating all the things you would teach them and the joys and sorrows you would share.

 

I am one of the several affordable photographers in Virginia Beach. Yet, my love for photography is profound. Not only do I enjoy the process of photography, but I also love to interact with my clients and see their happiness when they are pleased with the photos I can make for them. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment and of helping others remember the important times in their lives for years and years into the future! So when you think of Virginia Beach photographers, remember that I always ready to capture your happiest moments in photos!

Virginia Beach Weddings https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2017/4/virginiabeachweddings Sometimes small weddings are the best! Just a small gathering of friends and family is often full of stronger emotion than if you had hundreds of guests As a wedding photographer I had the opportunity to cover one such wedding not long ago. Though it was small I loved to photograph this wedding. The bride and groom showed so much love for each other and the happiness of their guests was so strong that I could not help but feel happy myself! While all wedding photographers love to photograph large glamorous weddings, photographing small ones can be just as rewarding.

Wedding photography https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2014/7/wedding-photography Today I had the great pleasure to photograph Jessica and Dale's wedding in beautiful Charleston. They are a very beautiful and passionate couple! It was a lot of fun to work with them. During our pre-wedding consultation, Jessica told me that she wanted to feel as if she was a princes on her wedding day. So, I tried very hard to reflect this in my photos. As a wedding photographer, I listen carefully to my clients and do my best to fulfill their dream wedding day. Therefore, I scouted out the most beautiful streets in downtown Charleston and found places that remained me of fairytales. We scheduled time before their ceremony to go to those places and take the dream wedding pictures they will treasure for the rest of their lives! Choosing the right wedding photographer, one which will meet all your expectations, is an extremely important decision. I absolutely realize, that there is nothing worse than to be disappointed with your wedding images.  Wedding photography is not just wedding pictures, it is priceless memories that you can obtain only once in your life. Sviatlana Wedding Photography ensures to capture your desirable wedding images!

Jessica and Dale, I am happy that I had an opportunity to work with you! You are a wonderful and amazing couple! I wish you many happy years of marriage!!!

Wedding Photography Tips https://www.sviatlanaweddingphotography.com/blog/2014/4/wedding-photography-tips Choosing a wedding photographer for your wedding in San Diego is an important step in preparing your perfect wedding. Which of the many San Diego photographers should you choose and how can you be assured of getting the wedding pictures you dreamed of? When you look for a photographer you should have several questions ready to ask them. In this photography blog I would like to list some of those questions and give you Sviatlana Photography's answer. So here we go:

 

1. What is your photographic style and where do you draw your wedding photo ideas from?

The style I use really depends on the situation and the context. For the ceremony itself and the more traditional parts of the reception I like to use a mixture of photojournalistic, traditional and formal styles. During more relaxed moments of the wedding I prefer to use more creative, artistic and candid styles. I find that this approach captures the essence of the wedding in the wedding images.

 

2. Can you produce Black and White photos or do you only shoot in color?

Yes, like most wedding photographers I can do both. Since I shoot photos in RAW format I can produce photos in color, Black and White, sepia, and many other color schemes. Using data RAW format allows me to use the maximum amount of photographic information captured in the image. In addition, I can provide digital images in JPEG and other formats to my clients.

 

3. How much input from your clients do you allow? Can we give you a list of shots that we want?

I welcome input from my clients! My main goal is to produce fantastic wedding photos for my clients that they will cherish forever. If you have certain wedding poses you like or a list of specific shots you want I would be more than happy to work with you by using my expertise to make your ideas a reality! 

 

4. What kind of equipment do you use and will it interfere with our wedding? Do you have back-up equipment?

I use a wide range of Nikon DSLR cameras, lenses, and flashes. In addition I use tripods, soft-boxes and umbrellas. I have enough equipment to cover as back-up in the event of an emergency. My equipment will not interfere with the wedding since I always place it in such a way that it is out of the way as much as possible but still sufficient to achieve great photos. During the ceremony I stay out of the way as much as possible, taking photos from a further vantage point using zoom lenses, though I might occasionally move in for a close-up.

 

5. How many months before my wedding should I book your services?

You should try to book my services at least a month before your wedding, but preferably more. Obtaining beautiful wedding pictures of your wedding is important for you as well as for me. I like to have enough time before your wedding to learn what your particular preferences are, to spend time reviewing and researching the location and expected lighting conditions, and to prepare all the paperwork. Additionlly, I always make a plan for photographing your wedding; I like to find the best locations for group and family shots and beautiful spots for artistic bride and groom portraits.

 

6. At the wedding will you stay in the background or do you prefer to be out in front choreographing shots?

There are times during the wedding when I find it better to be in the background. That's when I can obtain those candid shots of you and your guests! Some of the most memorable photos come from using this method. On the other hand, I like to also work on choreographing shots of you, your family, and close friends. I usually do this when the lighting conditions are right for a very specific series of shots, when it does not interfere with your wedding to do so, and when I feel I can capture a unique and special moment.

 

7. How will you dress at my wedding?

I always dress in a professional manner that is consistent with the overall theme of your wedding.

 

8. What kind of wedding photography packages do you offer?

I offer a wide range of wedding photography packages as well as the opportunity to customize my packages to fit your particular wedding event needs. You can get a much better sense of what I offer by visiting my wedding packages webpage.

 

9. Do you provide photo editing with your photography services?

Yes, with my services I provide complete photographic editing of your images. This would include brightening, making colors more vibrant, artistic editing, blemish removal and more. I strive to provide you with absolutely the most beautiful and memorable wedding photos that you can cherish forever!

 

I hope these photography tips will be helpful for your future wedding!
