Words about your photographer?
Boris is amazing. We were blessed enough to utilize him for our engagement photos and knew then that we’d have to utilize his services again! Pure talent! He’s got an eye like no other.
I am a wedding, portrait, and editorial photographer based in Brooklyn, New York.
I was born in a small town in Russia, and now I live in one of the largest cities in the world.
I have been photographing for over a decade. Photography has taken me places I have never imagined going too, and has allowed me to meet amazing people all over the world I would never have spoken to. Photography is more than just a business for me. It is a life-long passion, a way to connect to the world and people around me, and an avenue to communicate the beauty I see.
I hope that the photographs I capture have in them small truths and timeless moments that matter most to the people in them. I take the responsibility of being a photographer seriously, and I love what I do.
