Olya Vysotskaya

Olya Vysotskaya Foto Atelier

My inspiration for photography is greatly influenced by literature, music, cinema and personal experiences. I try to approach my work as if it's a magical, timeless film, beautiful music composition, a memorable novel or a poem that one is constantly drawn to come back to and every time finds something new.

My lifelong involvement with fine art and documentary photography lets me intimately capture the emotions, grace and light in all of the priceless moments of a wedding day, as well as the fleeting moments between those moments.

I am also involved in curating film programs for several international festivals and constantly working on my personal film and photography projects. My preference is to take on limited amount of wedding commissions per year to enable myself to keep a fresh, open-minded approach and genuine excitement about every single one I select to photograph, providing my clients with undivided attention and creative energy they deserve.

These are fantastic, Olya! Looks like something out of Vogue. Would not hesitate to recommend you to any and all friends getting married. Thanks again! Now the hard task of choosing favorite pictures starts...

Dear Olya, From our first meeting, I knew working with you would be a pleasure, but I had no idea how wonderful the result would be. Not only did you capture the traditional portraits we all wanted, but you were able to capture those moments that my husband and I thought only we could see. Our photos showcase the playful moments, the tender moments, and every other moment so perfectly. Every candid tells its own story for that day, as it should. That is why we love photographs so much isn't it? Thank you. Thank you and your team for your time, patience, and talent. And thank you for telling the story of our wedding day so fully and sweetly. We could not have had such photos with anyone else behind the camera. You worked with such calm and ease on such a cold and windy day. To say the photos are works of art is not enough. They are magical. Melissa & Alex

My husband and I received your photos and are so happy! You were very professional, unobtrusive, and made us feel so comfortable that we forgot you were snapping photos during our most intimate moments. The photos fully captured our emotions and the ambiance of the wedding. The wedding is a start to our life together and we could not have asked for better photographs to capture that. I love that we received such a mix of candid shots, interesting settings, and photos with friends and family. We cannot thank you enough for helping us preserve our memories!,

We were so excited when we found you - your work is absolutely stunning and we knew that you'd capture some unique images of our wedding. And you sure did! We've been pouring over the images from the moment you sent them to us - they are timeless, elegant, fun, and personal. Your style and way of working suited our intimate wedding perfectly, and you managed to put everyone completely at ease which is reflected in the quality of the images you've captured. Quite apart from the quality of your final photographs, you have been a joy to work with from start to finish - so professional and attentive, which made a huge difference given that we were coming from overseas. We felt totally confident and trusted you completely. You've been so accommodating, we genuinely couldn't have asked for more from you. Your work is amazing and you are an angel - thanks for helping make our day perfect, and for giving us such wonderful photographs to remember it by!!,

Oh my GOSH. I only just had time to look through the first set...Olya, you are amazing. This is just more than we ever expected when we set out to look for a photographer. Your pictures captured our wedding day in the same way I think I'd remember it in my mind's eye years later. Your style is natural yet extremely artistic; it feels more like work you'd see at a museum than the same-old, same-old wedding photos you see on all the blogs and in people's wedding albums. Thank you a million times!!!! ,

We're back in Spain safe and sound. We've seen all the pictures and the short film and we are really delighted. Your pictures did capture the magic of the moment and the emotions that we had that day (without showing how nervous we actually felt at posing), which is the most difficult to our understanding. The pictures do have an atmosphere. We have provided a selection to our close friends and they also remarked this. Your work is great and we feel both excited and grateful. Even the short film is outstanding for it reflects our story and it was a big surprise to us, even for the music. Thanks again not only for your magnificent work, but also for your company on that special day. We would like to keep in contact. ,
