About Tatiana Valerie

Hello there! I’m Tatiana, the proud founder of Artvesta Studio. I am an artist, a passionate photographer constantly striving to hone my craft. While I’m formally trained in art and photography, I firmly believe that practice is essential to achieving excellence.

My journey as a wedding photographer started with a dream: to capture the beauty of people during their happiest moments in life. This is why I started my wedding photography company ArtVesta Studio by ApplePix.com back in 2006.

Getting that perfect shot every time brings me so much joy. I am here to provide a stress-free, enjoyable experience of wedding photography and videography to you and your loved ones on your very special day.

  • I don’t even know where to begin in expressing my extreme gratitude for Tatiana and her team. Absolutely incredible experience. Tatiana was wonderful from beginning to end, she was not only sweet, friendly and a beautiful person, she was also the picture of professionalism. The entire time I was in great hands and I didn’t doubt it for one second. When I received the photos and footage of my wedding, my heart stood still. She captured so many endearing moments that I will forever hold dear. Delivering over 1500+ photos, each one a work of art. I am blown away by her! I recommend her without hesitation, in fact, it would be a mistake choosing anyone else! Tatiana and her team are absolutely AMAZING! 100%

Her team was even more amazing on the day of, working seamlessly as a team to capture everything.

  • My husband and I got married in November 2018 and choosing Tatiana as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made in the whole process. From the first meeting we had with her, we were immensely impressed by not only her professionalism but also her empathetic and compassionate nature. Tatiana was extremely patient and listened to any questions we had and also really worked with us to plan our big day. Tatiana was extremely open to any ideas we had but was also realistic with us to ensure that we were all on the same page and all of our expectations were met. On our big day, Tatiana was in full control and was ready to roll with the punches with uncertain weather. Tatiana stayed on schedule while ensuring both my husband and I, along with our families, were not only comfortable but were having a great time. We are extremely pleased with the final product as Tatiana and her team did a beautiful job with our posed photos and flawlessly captured the spirit and atmosphere of our wedding day with phenomenal candid shots. We cannot speak highly enough of Tatiana and highly recommend her for anyone looking to book a photographer for their wedding day or any other occasion!
