I crossed paths with Nastia in 2008 and we quickly became inseparable as partners in life, exploring the world and documenting weddings together.
Favourite memory: eloping with Damien in an off-grid shack on Bruny island, Tassie.
Nastia loves: Growing flowers and vegetables, cats, painting murals and dancing around the living room like no one is watching.
Favourite destinations: Serifos (Cyclades islands), Cadaqués and New-Zealand.
I am a dreamer and nomad at heart. I never planned to become a wedding photographer. My interest for photography grew from an incessant thirst for discovering new places and cultures. The beautiful complexity between people, emotions and places always fascinated me.
I love that weddings allow me to me to have a peek into people’s life for one day. I find it incredibly rewarding to be trusted to tell people's story on one of the most important days of their life. If you let me be part of your journey, I would love to immortalise your memories in a way that is honest, raw and timeless.
I am also... a dorky coffee addict who loves Queen, Stromae, Jungle, Wes Anderson movies and spending time exploring the wilderness. Favourite destinations: Morocco and Siberia.
RAW, CINEMATIC, EMOTIVE & TIMELESS
Our work can be described as raw, cinematic, emotive and timeless. While Damien dreams up scenes inspired by some of his favourite films, Nastia’s attention is often focused on smaller details like the flowers in your hair or the texture of your veil. Our styles are different but complement each other to build a rich story in a cinematic way.
Light is the core of our work and we are always up for experimenting with it in an intentional and artful way. Our love for travel reportage means we won’t be arranging you into awkward poses as we much prefer to capture all the brave and honest moments.
When you look back through the photographs of your wedding day we want you to relive (and FEEL) all the emotion through the subtle details and overlooked moments that made it so special. We photograph weddings because we love to share this amazing day with couples so if you connect with our work and would like to welcome us into your world for a day or so, we would love to hear from you!
Damien & Nastia
As soon as we met Damien and Anastasia we knew they were the perfect photographers to capture our wedding. They are so genuine, lovely, relaxed, and incredibly talented. They are also just the sort of lovely people you want to share your celebration with! Damien and Anastasia completely understood the mood and aesthetic we were after. The photos they produced are raw, candid and alternative in the photojournalistic style, but also with a sense of timelessness and elegance. Damien and Anastasia produced the perfect combination of modern and classic photos that you will look as lovely in 20 years time as they do today, and work above the "trends" you often see in wedding photos. We had an engagement session with them earlier in the year before our wedding, which was a great way to adjust to being photographed for us camera shy people (not to mention getting a wonderful set of stunning photographs without wedding garb), and on the wedding day they managed to capture every detail and intimate moment whilst barely being seen! Damien and Anastasia also have a great sense of adventure, which tied in nicely with our love of travel. Their sense of style and professionalism in everything they do is impeccable. I can't recommend them both highly enough.
Hard to put into words really how wonderful it is to get these photos! I literally screamed when I saw your email (very unlike me! My husband was v surprised!) The day was so magic and so emotional but it went all so quickly. Thankfully we have a perfect record of it now! You really were our best investment on our wedding day - you’ve captured the precious moments for us in a thousand works of art we get to have forever. Receiving the photos is like reliving all the magic time and time again. You made us feel and look like the queen and king we got to be for our one special day! Every part of working with you was a delight and easy and your professionalism is impeccable. Our family and friends commented on how lovely and professional and unobtrusive you both were on the day. We couldn’t recommend you more highly to other couples- I’d say having Damien and Anastasia document your wedding is to invest in a lifetimes worth of achingly stylish, beautiful, poised, and unforgettable memories you can hold and share
Hi Damien and Anastasia, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such an incredible series of photographs. They are truly amazing, and far and beyond all our expectations, you have really captured the essence of the day. Liana and I are so happy with the outcome and we will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. Thank you.
