Tatiana is an amazing photographer not to mention person. She was the most highly recommended photographer out of many of our friends and I am glad we went with her. For our wedding we wanted to make sure that moments are captured and that we would be able to relive the moment every time we go through the photos. It was our first time taking professional photos and Tatiana really made it a great experience right from the moment we met her. Tatiana is very personable and sweet. She did our engagement shoot, short video and a full wedding day filled with events and she exceeded all our expectations. She looked like she had more energy than all of us did during our wedding! All of our family and guests complimented to us how professional and personable Tatiana was which made everyone very comfortable in front of the lens and it shows through the photos. She's very attentive to detail and if she doesn't feel that it looks good through the lens, she'll guide you to make sure to get the right shot. No pressure at all, she allowed us to be relaxed and natural. The talent she brings isn't to take millions of shots and picking the best one out of those; it's all in the preparations and detail that differentiates her skills as a professional photographer. There was not an instance where Tatiana made us feel uncomfortable at all. We had tons of fun and plenty of smiles. I am certain we will have Tatiana capture more moments for us in the future.

Tatiana is simply the best. It was my husbands first "photo shoot" for our engagement photos. We each envisioned something different but wanted to make both become a reality. Tatiana literally went above and beyond in finding the PERFECT locations for each of our taste, but also just nailed the photos perfectly. We just got our wedding photos as well, which of course exceeded our expectations again. She most definitely has the eye for photography. Best money you will spend! Thank you Tatiana!

Having the best photographer was one of our top priorities for our wedding-- and we definitely found her! Tatiana was AMAZING! She made us feel like movie stars. We booked her for our engagement photos, and loved how they turned out so much- all of our friends and family were raving about the amazing photos she took of us and how great she made us look. We loved her style so much, we made sure to have her photograph our wedding, and again, she captured every moment with such elegance and beauty. Throughout our photoshoots, she was helpful in guiding us with where to look (at each other, the camera, or away), what to do with our hands (sometimes that's the hardest part), and even helped fix my hair in between shots (this is not common of photographers and I was SO grateful). During our photo sessions with her, we felt so natural- like she was a friend we've known for years- so we felt so comfortable, and you can definitely see in the photos how at ease, at home, and comfortable we felt with the person behind the camera lens-- thanks to Tatiana's great photographing skills! Tatiana knows how to make sure you capture your best look- with the best lighting, the best angles, and the best poses. Thank you so much, Tatiana, for capturing all of our most memorable moments together, for our engagement and wedding!! For all of my friends who get engaged, I will make sure that if they want the best photos, YOU are the one they need!

If you want to ensure every moment, detail and emotion from your wedding day is captured to remember forever, you must hire Tatiana as your wedding photographer! She has an incredibly creative eye, knows how to gently give direction to brides/grooms/family, and is calm and fun to be around! When I was planning my wedding, I felt the most important vendor to hire was a photographer since the images from the day would be our long lasting reminder of our wedding. When we found Tatiana, we hired the best photographer in San Diego! My husband and I chose to have an engagement session with Tatiana as a way to get to know her and also to get more comfortable with posing before our big day. *I highly recommend doing this!* My husband is not super comfortable in front of a camera (just like most other guys!), but with Tatiana’s gentle way of coaching us on how to pose and move, it helped us relax and enjoy the shoot… which definitely shines through in our photographs. On our wedding day, Tatiana was with us the entire day! It’s funny because it felt more like a friend spending time with us who also happened to be snapping photos… it was relaxed, enjoyable and fun! With Tatiana as our photographer, I knew that our wedding day images would be fantastic! And when we recently received our photos, my husband and I were absolutely blown away! Tatiana did an incredible job capturing our day – from the moments we saw (and were a part of) to the unexpected moments we didn’t see until we received the photos. She also did a wonderful job capturing our personalities and incorporating our love story! Every photo is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier! I must also mention that my videographer was so pleased when I told him that Tatiana would be our wedding photographer. He said she is absolutely one of the best and is different from all other photographers because she pays so much attention to the positioning of brides and grooms and is able to easily guide them into flattering poses. I have to admit that it’s pretty cool when other vendors are excited that you’ve hired Tatiana because they know she’ll capture incredible images, she’s great to be around, and she’s determined to make every image perfect. Many, many thanks to Tatiana for giving us priceless reminders of our special day!

This is a review for a San Diego engagement shoot with Tatiana. We are a couple who traveled from San Francisco Bay Area because we wanted to take photos where we met, UC San Diego in La Jolla. Tatiana will be traveling to San Francisco - East Bay Area for our wedding in December. We will update this review after the honeymoon. :)
Review highlights: Tatiana's work not only presents you at your best, but also tells a story with the landscape. Tatiana's personality is fun, sweet, and sassy. She is specific with direction to ease you into poses that will appear natural in photos. We had so much fun during our 1.5 hours with her and cannot wait to see her again on our special day! She has excellent, timely communication. Engagement photo files (color, black and white, and a surprise video) arrived within 14 days of the photo shoot. We can't imagine sharing our special day with any other photographer.
How we found Tatiana: She found us! By serendipity, she started following my fiancé's photography on instagram on a Monday. We were going to make a trip to San Diego that Thursday. We had always wanted to take photos at the place we met, so we saw her stunning work and were immediately interested. I called her and she answered the phone right away and addressed all of my questions. She proceeded to text me back throughout the week and we met that Thursday, 3 days later. Very flexible and easy to communicated with!

Working with Tatiana: We could tell from her website that we'd love her photography, but we didn't expect to have so much with her! She broke the ice immediately with hugs. Then we got started! Since she didn't know the location (UCSD - north campus) she arrived early for inspiration. It very much felt like a date. She kept us laughing with directions like, "Relax, these aren't senior photos!" So fun.
After spending some time on campus, my fiancé and I did an outfit change and then we drove down to Windansea Beach in La Jolla for beach photos. We lucked out with beautiful color in the sunset and ocean. Again, we trusted Tatiana's inspiration and posed as she instructed. As you can see, the photos don't disappoint!! We got soaked to our navels when the waves hit us from behind, however, Tatiana's forte is catching the relaxed couple before the wave hits. Take a look at the attached photo...it was so worth getting drenched!! ;)
The product: Within hours of finishing the shoot, Tatiana posted the first teaser photo on Instagram/Facebook and we were in love with it. We were stunned by the rest she texted us throughout the following week. We booked her for our wedding then and there. We cannot possibly imagine our wedding day without her. It was such an enjoyable experience and we can't wait to see her again!

I just wanted to let you know that you were such a breath of fresh air. You were so professional, but personable all at the same time. Your creative eye and attention to detail was impecable! I love that you were able to guide us into poses and make us feel so completely comfortable in front of the camera. I am by no means a model, but you were so very patient with me and helped me find my inner "model". Looking at these pictures I have never felt more beautiful. Now I have pictures that I will be proud to show our kids one day. I can not thank you enough for giving me the wedding pictures I had always dreamed of. I know most girls dream about their wedding day their whole life. As silly as this may sound, I never really dreamed of that day (I knew it would come and go so quickly). Instead, I used to stare at my parents' old wedding photograph and longingly dream of the day that I too would have gorgeous wedding pictures to adorn the walls of my own home. At the risk of sounding cheesy, thank you for making my dreams come true :).
Again, I can not thank you enough for being so wonderful. We are so lucky to have stumbled across your website and we will recommend you to everyone we know!

We had Miss Tatiana as our photographer for our wedding. I could not have had a more professional photographer than her. She was so helpful & took such good care of us to help ensure each & every one of our pictures looked spectacular. She has a good eye for taking advantage of lighting & uses whatever the background is as an opportunity to take awesome pictures. There aren't enough wonderful words in the dictionary to describe Tatiana's professional abilities & her kindness. We recommend her for any occassion....especially weddings. All the best wishes to you Tatiana...thank you for making our day magical & helping us capture each moment ;).

Our engagement photos turned out great!!! We are in love with every single one of them and our family are fully enjoying them as well (in tears sometimes, no kidding). We want to thank you for your wonderful work and can't wait for the actual wedding!

Bring Passion to EVERYTHING you do

Thank you so much for making our wedding day just perfect and incredibly awesome! You never lost your cool between my mom not being ready, ppl walking by, my bee sting or family not being where they were supposed to be :). We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you again! You are absolutely amazing at what you do!
- Karin & Nick | Engagement & Wedding

I don't know how you do it, but you are pure magic behind the lens :). The pictures are gorgeous! Thank you for your beautiful work. Thank you so much for everything.
- April | Boudoir

Tatiana, you were absolutely delightful to work with - you were professional, fun, creative, funny and (most importantly) patient while herding the controlled chaos of our bridal party :). We had a lot of fun taking the pictures and are so happy with them. Thanks Tatiana, for a truly wonderful experience!
Dawn & Jay | Wedding

Having Tatiana as our wedding photographer was a pure blessing. She captured all the moments that are so special to us. The combination of traditional and artistic is just priceless and we will never stop being thankful to Tatiana for that. From getting ready photos to Ceremony and crazy dancing moments, all photos are stunning and natural. Thank you again so much.
A very Happy Bride | Wedding

Where do I begin?!? The pictures Tatiana captured are absolutely breathtaking. I don’t consider myself to be photogenic at all and I swear somehow Tatiana captures the best possible angle and position to accentuate all the positives! She is so calming to work with especially on such a high stress day and she just helps to keep everything flowing and on schedule. Tatiana released our photos in just a couple weeks and all of the editing was so perfect and I swear I have no idea how we will ever be able to narrow them down to put in an album. There are just so many Perfect, beautiful shots! One of the main reasons I was drawn to Tatiana’s work was her understanding of composition, as well as, her creativity. Yes, she captures all of the traditional shots, but my favorites have been the edgy ones that are so unique and creative. I've had so many friends tell me our wedding photos are absolutely stunning and magazine quality. It may sound conceited, but I have to agree. Honestly, I have seen so many of my friends wedding photos and I feel bad because ALL of my pictures are just so beautiful and unique and don't even compare! Anyone that looks at Tatiana’s pictures can see she has a gift and I am just so thankful we were able to have Tatiana for our wedding. Now I am planning a “trash the dress” shoot and I am so excited to see what kind of ideas she has, because I know whatever she thinks, will look great. Thank you so much Tatiana. I will always be thankful for your creative eye and talent. Brian and I will treasure our wedding photos for the rest of our lives.

Tatiana is EXCEPTIONAL! She made me feel 100% comfortable for my boudoir photo shoot. She has the perfect amount of professionalism, but is also fun and sassy which made my photos come out so much better!

Best gift to give is LOVE, Best way to show love is to GIVE TIME.

Tatiana is amazing!! We had a Family session done with our eight month old baby girl. Tatiana picked an absolutely gorgeous location and captured so many amazing pictures. I am obsessed with all of them! She was great with my daughter. She had a lots of clever tactics to keep my daughter engaged and smiling. The results were beautiful. Couldn't be happier. Before the baby arrived we had a maternity session with Tatiana, a mix of boudoir and lifestyle. Also amazing. Tatiana has the ability to make everyone feel completely comfortable and the results really show that.
I absolutely recommend Tatiana!

We have been using Tatiana as our photographer for years now. She is truly the best, very professional and delivers high quality photos. She makes the kids feel so natural and is able to catch the true happy moments! Highly recommend her services.
- Oksana D. | lifestyle

My husband and I wanted images of us to put in our home and hired Tatiana after seeing her impressive work online. Our session was simple and comfortable and each location she selected looks outstanding in the photos. We are having a difficult time selecting which images to enlarge as they are all absolutely beautiful and really capture our personality.
- Tina & Jason | lifestyle

Tatiana is the best photographer! She's well rounded, very easy/fun to work with and has great eye for photography. We have worked with many photographers, but have not been as happy until we worked with Tatiana. We first worked with her when my first daughter was only about 4 months old (She's now 27 months) and has been our family photographer ever since (we've had at least 5-6 shoots so far). She's very patient and she's great with kids. My daughter is not the easiest to make smile especially by strangers, but Tatiana has the charm/magic. My daughter is able to warm up to her very quickly every time we have a shoot. Very soon, my daughter is laughing and smiling and we're all at ease and having fun while Tatiana captures the most timeless, adorable pictures of our family. Tatiana is fantastic at capturing natural actions/emotions and we love that our pictures don't look posed. Her passion and hard work shows every time we receive our pictures. We highly recommend Tatiana if you want HIGH quality pictures without breaking the bank.
