In case you were wondering to know more about me, here are some interesting thoughts.
I am definitely a summer girl, who has a strong affection for warm sunsets colored in blush and peach. I couldn’t miss my daily walks in the fresh air, both for wandering through a city and to calm down in the nature. Could you imagine a sunny day, vast meadow and someone lying on a picnic blanket with a white fluffy dog? Probably it would be me and my little westie having a day off work. But even clouded and melancholy days in Northern Germany could be the perfect ones, when spent by the sea. Having a breeze of fresh salty air in my hair and listening to naughty seagulls flying above gives me the feeling of absolute freedom and happiness, which for it’s part provides me tons of inspiration for the creative process of photography.
While photographing weddings I set the highest priority into creating a relaxed and familiar atmosphere to capture the most precious moments of your day in candid photographs full of joy, emotions and excitement. Photographs which will still bring tears of joy and happiness after many decades of your life and become those special images, that reflect your character, personal story and will be preserved for many generations.
Being specialized in documenting weddings all across the globe also means to travel to the most beautiful and impressive destinations like Lake Como, Paris, New York, Corfu, Sicily, Paris, tiny Danish islands and more. I am happy to travel everywhere to capture love stories. Wherever the place is you want to celebrate: I am with you. Let’s create romantic and meaningful photographs together!
Good to know: I live a multicultural life and would be more than happy to communicate with you in English, German or Russian.
I’m delighted to travel to many beautiful destinations around the globe for photographing couples in love. Below you can discover the dates for my upcoming travels.

love notes from my couples:
Yana photographed our wedding in the summer of 2018. We had a trusting and professional foundation from the first contact on. We talked in advance about how and where we’ll do the photographs, so that everything goes smoothly on the wedding day itself. When the big day came, we were very pleasantly surprised that Yana appeared with a new colleague. This way even more and even more stunning impressions could be captured. By and large, we did not notice them during the day except, of course, for the scheduled bride and groom photo session. It was all the better that we had received so many amazing and artistically beautiful photos of ourselves, guests and the entire mood without having the feeling that we had to pose constantly. It was very pleasant and we can only recommend Yana to every wedding couple.
Yana is truly a very nice and professional photographer, who has an eye for the beauty! We felt absolutely comfortable, from the first lovely e-mail contact to personal contact at the photo session. She gave us a lot of valuable tips, so we felt totally well in front of the camera. This also reflected in our pictures, they are just beautiful, full of feeling, just wooow, we are still totally enchanted by her great work!!! Yana has this very special look on how to capture moments and emotions and the icing on the cake is her editing style, totally natural and beautiful! Many thanks for that, dear Yana, we had such a wonderful session with you and we like to think back!
Having Yana for our wedding day was like getting an all-round carefree package. Yana took a lot of time to get to know us already before the wedding and to ask us about our wishes and ideas. With a lot of heart and the right eye, she and her team captured our unforgettable moments. Yana showed a lot of patience and professionalism, because unfortunately not everyone is born as a model :) Thank you for the great day and the beautiful photos!
Dear Yana, we would like to thank you again for our wonderful summer pictures! We were more than pleasantly surprised at the couple session. Both of us do not really like to be in front of the camera and normally feel uncomfortable when being photographed. With Yana, however, the opposite was the case, we spent a beautiful, casual afternoon and evening by the lake, understood each other from the first minute and laughed a lot. All the more we were happy about the result, even half a year later when she pointed us to our pictures printed in a wedding magazine. We can only recommend Yana, in every respect. Thank you!
We are very happy with the choice of Yana as photographer for our church wedding. Yana is totally reliable and has an excellent eye for lovely candids and arrangements. She is very personable and professional - both in the planning phase and at the event itself. Conclusion: Highly recommended for high demands!
