Dmitry & Maria

“I love you and I will love you till I stop breathing. I know this for sure. You are my horizon, all my thoughts come down to you. Whatever happens – you will be the most important person for me. And it has always been like that. Always.” – Erich Maria Remarque.

 At the middle of September of 2015 we had a lucky opportunity to shoot a wedding day in Rostov –on-Don. Everything began with very advertent attitude of the bride and the hired manager to choosing team members for the most important day in the young familys’ life. Because finding the perfect videographer (in this case – 1600 kilometers away from the wedding place) may require hours of looking through portfolios of different professionals. We love when people pay so much attention to all the details: image, style, light, small things that impact the whole mood of the evening. Scale of the job done during preparations to this project is tremendous. Much of the credit for it goes to Anna Shishkina (Nostra Storia, wedding manager, stylist). She seems to be a true wizard. We communicated a lot before the wedding and became good friends. Later she worked on our workshop in Sochi, but we will tell you about it in another article. We can tell you many great things about Anna, but there is only one conclusion: if you are in Taganrog, Rostov or Sochi and you are looking for a great manager with good taste, who is reliable, responsible and pleasant, contact Nostra Storia wedding organization studio.

And this is backstage video about wedding preparations. 


The team is working and warm Rostov sun sends us last rays. 

Everything was marvelous and perfect: young and cheerful bride and groom with great taste, grooms’ friends wearing bow ties and glasses, brides’ maids in beautiful dresses, little flower bouquets, wonderful brides’ dress and grooms’ suit, sky-blue water in the swimming pool, huge shining letters and fairy lights and so much more interesting details... 

I also would like to mention the photographer we worked with in this team. Andrey Ovtcharenko – he turned out to be not only a true professional we heard of a lot about, but also a very pleasant person. We find his style very moving and delightful. We can recommend him. It was Andrey who made photos used in this article. On-site marriage registration took place just by the pool after the sunset. We were quite worried at the beginning, but everything turned out great. I have already mentioned in one of the articles that it is very important to find a good lighting technician and rent the best equipment and I will never get tired of repeating it. It is important because due to good light you’ll get great photos and videos and if the lights will be placed with skill, they’ll add special charm to every event and, when necessary, will add a lot of drive!


The first dance at night in spotlights, it’s so beautiful! People sometimes ask me how to make the first dance more showy. First of all, the dance itself may be fascinating and interesting to watch, but even if it’s just elegant and consists of the simplest moves it can be spiced up. The guys used fireworks, it was very cool and tasteful, but remember that it’s quite easy to spoil the first dance with fireworks. Light devices and projectors may also accent your dance beautifully, you may also use heavy smoke or just smoke, but be careful with the latter, confetti also look amazing. 

 Dima and Maria are very nice people and their wedding was fantastic, you can see it on the photos :).
