Mystery and enigma, gloominess, languor and beauty – these words were coming to mind when we planned this photoshoot.

People often think that to have a beautiful wedding photoshoot one has to go abroad and spend lots of money. We wanted to show that it’s possible to make beautiful photos without travelling far and wasting your savings. For that we chose Sochi, a beautiful Russian city. It emerged that there are many unique places as well. 

Bohemity, but without any excesses, even somewhat casual. Languor and mysteriousness. The location of the photoshoot itself set this style. Time-worn bohemian architecture, dark colors, gloomy, ivied and moth-grown walls. In all this we saw incredible beauty. Then we started to look for a couple, it wasn’t easy. But when we finally found our models and the final image took shape in our heads, we were thrilled. Tatyana Kotchnova made an unbelievable dress for this photoshoot. It brought to mind those same words: mystery, gloominess, enigma, casual bohemity.

On the shooting day everything was just perfect, our couple got into their roles very naturally. They managed to express everything we thought of and even what we didn’t think of. They added to this gloominess their own bright feelings and some special mood that finalized the shooting. Glances, touches, intangible silent communication. Everything turned out just like we wanted. 

And this is the video we filmed during this project, we hope you’ll enjoy it:
