Hiii, I am so happy you're here! I am Alina, and if you're reading this you probably want to learn a little bit about me! I started taking photos around 2017, but I didn't start with weddings and couples, in fact I never even wanted to be a photographer. I started off with taking portraits of my best friend and occasionally other people on my iPhone and would edit them in VSCO, but it was just for fun! My friends would share those pictures on social media and eventually people started reaching out to me asking me to take photos of them. I started loving taking photos and capturing memories for people. I bought a cheap camera and started a photography account to share the photos that I would take. I wasn't very confident at first and was even scared to let people trust me with their photos. Eventually my confidence grew as my family and friends encouraged me to start a business and I started falling more and more deeply in love with photography. Once I shot my first wedding, my business started growing and molding more into an actual business rather than just a hobby.
Fast forward to today, I am so happy and blessed to call this my job. I love it so much and I fall more and more in love with it every single day. God's love, grace, and faithfulness is so evident in my life and because of this, I know that He is leading me to where I need to be in my life and in my business.
I want my clients to not only love the photos, but I want to give them the best experience possible. I truly am so thankful to all my wonderful clients for trusting me to capture their special memories and moments. All my amazing clients make my job 10000x more fun and enjoyable, and that to me is a blessing!
