Hey,

WANDERLUST

DO YOU ENVISION YOUR WEDDING AS AN

INTIMATE EVENT FULL OF

AUTHENTICITY, RAW EMOTIONS AND GOOD VIBES?

 
 

YOU ARE ONTO SOMETHING!

You two are intentionally choosing to celebrate your nuptials in a way that is your own &

I will walk/run/crawl with you to help you experience your dreamy vision of the day. 

You most likely adventure off the beaten path and take the road less traveled in life.

You are down to earth, but you don't settle for mediocre.

You adore breathtaking beauty found in nature and in romantic love stories. 

You think that meeting the one you can be vulnerable with, your true best friend you can reveal all of your quirks to and feel at peace in their embrace, is pretty exhilarating.

Because you set the world alight together.

You wandered, took the roads unknown, found each other and then said "no one else but you".

Take a deep breath and enjoy every moment.

This is crazy powerful and it deserves a celebration, that honors your values and aspirations.

What I do

I document love all over the world since 2012.

Intimate boutique weddings and adventure elopements are my specialty.

I create candid images full of raw affection, quirky details and authentic moments nestled in unforgettable sceneries. 

I adore free spirited couples that are stoked to share their adventures together, because exploring new landscapes in hiking boots, on skis or in a wet suit is my jam.

Also - I feel like I know you, so nice to meet you, lovely!

What

inspires

me

I find beauty in simple words that exude certain moods: "hygge" - a feeling of warmth and coziness in a company of loved ones, or "petrichor" - the comforting smell of dry soil after a long awaited rain. These expressive inspirations help me create complex visuals that interpret sceneries with deep emotion. 

At your wedding, it's you who is the most powerful inspiration, so it means the world to me to create a meaningful connection with you and to be able to capture your story, including your tears and goosebumps.

TESTIMONIAL:

Before starting the search, I had to work around two of my husband's requests: 1. No second-shooters and 2. "No crazy filters or poses". I ultimately interpreted this as: someone who is confident, capable of putting awkward people at ease, has a photo journalistic style, and excels working with both natural and artificial light. With all of that in mind, I have to say that stumbling upon Yana's website was a serendipitous moment.
