I believe in marriage.
Hi lovers, I'm Irina -- an intimate wedding and elopement photographer passionate about crafting unique wedding experiences with heart and intention. I’m based in Fresno, California but I find myself traveling more often than not. I’m a mint tea + candle hoarding + equal parts dog lover and cat lover — because who can choose? If I’m not shooting on my weekends you can probably find me cuddled up editing/watching Netflix at home with my husband, or out in nature adventuring with my pup, Hazel. Together we love traveling this world, losing sleep and pretending we’re never aging— and it’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of and more.
I’d love to join wherever you and your love journey takes you, but before we dive in, I think it’s important you get to know the person behind the camera too.

Picture you and the love of your life, promising each other forever in the most breathtaking place you've ever seen. Squeezing each other's hands as hard as you can, dancing under the stars, and realizing that this day is the beginning of your greatest adventure yet. These moments are what I'm all about.

Images are memories and feelings you can hold onto forever. Your most cherished moments deserve to be lived intentionally, and to be relived fully. We care deeply about connection with others. About the smallest details that make your story a work of art. About the language of light. About moments in time so special they have the ability to come rushing back through a photograph, a smell, or a song. About intentionally creating a life that feels good and honest and true from the inside out. About creating modern heirlooms which become dwelling places to reconnect. About staying true to yourself and not getting lost in the sea of sameness. About the small things that give true meaning to life.
I’m talking about the heart stuff. I want you to remember exactly how you felt that day. More of those intangible feelings. More of the people you love.
A few months ago my husband and I were eloping, and just wanted simple pictures in a pretty landscape. That's when I found Irina. She was quick to respond to my inquiry, and helped me figure out the best photo options for me. She also was so friendly ahead of time getting to know me and my husband as people and not just as clients. When she met us for our shoot it felt more comfortable and less awkward.
I would recommend Irina to everyone! Her work is simple, elegant, romantic and just perfectly captured.
More times than not, clients become friends. We text back and forth, I get excited over the dress, the flowers, little babes in tummies and everything in between. Read through a few sweet words from my clients:
You should know that you are so incredibly gifted at what you do. You work so hard and are so invested and it really shows in the quality of your work.
You are very special to us and we feel honored that you were there and able to capture such an awesome day. The best day ever! Thank you again so much.
Irina was such a JOY to work with. She is sweet, kind, and so willing to help out with her valuable suggestions and advice.
She made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. On top of it all, she has natural talent and a great eye for photography.
About 80% of these photos were me just laughing. She knew exactly what to do, and directed us (which we needed) she’s very sweet and can make awkward moments turn into something so beautiful! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER! If you want someone who will capture raw emotions, and looking for elegant, creative, and steamy photos Irina is the one for you! She seriously is the best out there!!! And the turn around time was really fast on getting the photos.
Irina was able to organize for us my favorite shoot to date. Thomas and I had such a wonderful time with her while running around Big Sur.
She has lovely and adventurous spirit that was able to shape our experience. While trying to get a shot of us at McWay Falls, she scaled a wall to get that perfect angle! I would definitely recommend booking Irina for your photoshoot, engagement, wedding, or elopement.
If you’re looking for someone who will look out for you on your wedding day and who truly cares about you as a couple, you’ve come to the right place.
