Anniversary Video for Candace & Tyler

One of my favorite couples, Candace & Tyler had a destination wedding in New York in September 2013. Their Central Park ceremony was absolutely magical and their reception at Mondrian Soho was a lot of fun. I managed to shoot some brief video clips along with professional photos and last night I created an anniversary video for the lovebirds.

This was the couple’s response:

“We are so touched that you thought of us Tatiana At ArtvestaStudio you don’t even know how much this means to us. Thank you for being such a complete part of our incredible moments.”

I am so glad that my plan worked out well and my work brought some joy to the two of them! Happy Anniversary dear Candace & Tyler!

A Happy bride by Tatiana Valerie

Sharing one of my favorite photos from yesterday’s wedding photo shoot. I call this photo A Happy Bride. This is a great example of my signature technique — guided photo journalism.

Guided photojournalism means that I preserve the natural candidness of the scene but I do not normally shoot fully candid. I guide my clients into the right situation that gives a great starting point for the further natural flow that accentuates their positive sides. This way I make sure that the resulting images look not only natural but beautiful and flawless.

The bride looks caught up in a happy moment but, believe it or not, this photo is fully posed!


Jenn & Michael’s Wedding Day

Jennifer and Michael’s wedding day was long awaited and very much anticipated. I loved working with the couple in May 2014 during their cherry blossom engagement photo shoot in Central Park.

Below is one of my favorite photos from the wedding. I took it while laying down on the ground with my camera facing upwards. Good thing I had a new dress to change into before the reception started; the “down-and-dirty” approach got my clothes pretty dusty!

Jenn_Michael_Garden_City_Hotel_01-650A fresh and innovative entertainment solution for Jen and Michael’s wedding was a same-day-edit photography slide show. My assistant and I were screening the couple’s engagement and WEDDING PHOTOS! Yes, you read it right! Photos taken just minutes ago were professionally showcased on a portable screen.

It was a great wedding and I look forward to publishing Jen and Michael’s story on my blog in a few weeks!
