about me

Hi, and thank you for visiting my website! It is an absolute honour to be considered to photograph your wedding! 🙂

My name is Aliona. I am from Russia and have been living in Ireland half of my life :). I have studied photography at Griffith College Dublin. I live in Bray, Co. Wicklow, with my husband Barry and our three energetic boys :). They are my biggest inspiration and my strongest supporters.

I am a qualified, registered and fully insured wedding photographer based in Bray, Co. Wicklow and available for weddings nationwide.

I offer mini photography packages to suit small civil ceremony weddings and registry office weddings, and full day photography packages to cover a wedding day from preparations until dancing.

Wedding photography gives me a great chance to capture some important moments – the excitement of a bride and a groom on their wedding day, preparations before the ceremony, emotions of family and friends at a wedding, many beautiful moments as wedding celebrations continue. I photograph details that will remind the couple in years to come about all the thought they put in to planning their wedding day: bride’s dress, shoes, flowers, wedding rings, wedding invitations, personalised table decorations, wedding cake.

My photography style is mostly documentary, combined with some formal group shots. I try to stay out of the way of newlyweds and their guests so everyone feels relaxed to enjoy the day without being followed by a photographer. A lot of the photos I take throughout the day are candid natural shots, capturing the moments as they happen. After the wedding ceremony, I would take photos of the newly married couple on their own on the grounds of their venue or a nice location of their choice. Group photos with the couple’s wedding party and family and friends are usually done before tea & coffee reception.
