Hi, I’m Oksana! A full-time professional wedding photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I believe in love and in happiness. I adore Edinburgh and Scotland, and the people living here. I think that the Dutch are the most creative people in the World. I lived in The Netherlands for about 12 years and studied photography in Amsterdam. I have PhD in Physics. As any human being I have secrets, some of them are funny. Like having more than 30 pairs of shoes in my closet or reading fantasy books about magic. And I consider myself lucky enough as I love what I do and love people around me. My husband is my best friend to whom I’ve been married for as long as I can remember. We have two gorgeous daughters, who turn sometimes into cheeky little monsters, and they bring much joy and vibrant chaos to our lives every single day.
I shoot weddings because it is my way of living. I like people, emotions and people in love. The most important part of my work on every wedding is to make everyone around me happy! All I want is you to see how amazing you are together, to show the true you with all your emotions and beauty. And no matter how many weddings I shoot, they still make me cry with happiness.
The most treasured pictures are not mine. These are the old family pictures. The ones with my mum and my grand parents. It is all that is left for me now. I love my parents wedding pictures. Probably because they look so young, happy and a bit shy in these candid photos from the past. Because all their life together is not written yet. It makes me smile with tears. My mum was strong-willed person, always helping us and others, passionate, intelligent and amazingly beautiful too. She fell ill quite young and after that their life together was not the same. Still I know very well that my dad and she were happy and in love. As love is a beautiful gift, it is our treasure and our miracle.
