Hello! My name is Olegs and I am wedding and lifestyle portrait photographer based in Kent, UK. I am passionate about photography and I love using photography to tell stories. My aim is to capture natural, unique and personal images that will highlight emotion, fun, tears and joy. I love capturing real moments and creating high quality creative portraits with natural light and colour.

We are both so glad that we chose Olegs to take photos at our wedding. Knowing Olegs through a work connection and after looking through his web site, we decided to take him on. We met up with Oleg and Rita a few days before the wedding to go over a few ideas. We easily built up a very comfortable report with them both and were impressed with their laid-back but enthusiastic approach.
On the day both Olegs and Rita were fantastic. Their experience enabled them to read a situation and know exactly where to be to take the perfect picture. And both photography ninjas managed to capture moments that would have gone unnoticed to most but captured the moments perfectly. We went to different locations shortly after the service in the countryside and woodlands to have more personal pictures taken and with their creative and original eye for colour and setting managed to take more breathtakingly beautiful photos. Because of their friendly approach we were so comfortable with the situation that is noticeable in the pictures.
At the reception they took control and managed to group everyone together according to the list that we had submitted prior to the day and successfully shot the photos that we wanted and more.. After this there were more spontaneous pictures of our guests, the reception and the surrounding areas which beautifully added to the photo archive.
We collected our photos two weeks later, and they went through the massive collection of photos with us, allowing us to relive the day once more. After we expressed how happy we were with the photos they kindly gave us all the pictures in the form of a quirky wooden USB, and a few prints in a gorgeous wooden presentation box.
All of our friend and family cannot get over how brilliant the photos are and are so impressed with them all. Olegs and Rita are both worth every penny and we are so thankful they were with us on this day. Thank you.

We knew from the moment we saw their work that we wanted Olegs and Rita to photograph our day. Posing for photographs was a daunting idea for us, but the pre wedding shoot with the couple put us totally at ease. We lit a fire on the beach and drank some whisky and really hit it off, they are fun, natural and creative. We knew our pictures would be amazing but they totally blew us away with the way that they captured every moment and emotion of the day without us even really being aware they were there. Olegs just blends in and makes the whole process completely organic and Rita works in the background paying attention to every detail. I still look back at the photos daily and am so grateful to them both. I feel like the photos will allow me to relive those feelings felt on the day forever.”

Olegs is an absolutely fantastic photographer. We hired him on reccomdation from our wedding venue and we are so glad we did. Olegs and Rita are an impressive force, from seamlessly coordinating our staged shots, to becoming practically invisible when capturing the more reportage style shots. We are incredibly grateful for the memories they have provided us of our day and also for their time and coercing during our pre-wedding shoot. For something we thought could be awkward at first, after chatting and taking the first photo we found our inner ‘blue steel’ and we actually ended up having loads of fun. Our wedding album is a beautiful mix of intricate detail, surprise and pure joy. Olegs and Rita are wonderful at their jobs and just lovely people to have around, you won’t ever regret hiring them!”

Where do I start with Olegs and Rita, after photographing our wedding back in December I couldn’t thank them enough. They make you feel so comfortable and can’t do enough to help you. As a young couple getting married Olegs really put my nerves at rest, he also gave a lot of advice about how the day works. Rita was amazing and did whatever she could to get the amazing photos ( running to and from with our coats ) there is no other photographer’s I would recommend more.”

Our photos were more amazing that we could ever have dreamed! Olegs and Rita captured our day so perfectly and made us feel so relaxed in front of the camera. Rita was so attentive always making sure my dress looked perfect in all the photos and so much care was taken to make sure we had some fantastic photos we can treasure forever! We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Olegs and Rita to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer, such lovely people and amazing talent!”

As soon as Kevin and myself met with Olegs and Rita we knew that we wanted them to capture our day! When we received our pre wedding photo shoot pictures we knew 100% that we had made the right decision. On our wedding day we were made to feel comfortable and at ease throughout knowing full well that Olegs has everything under control. We received our wedding album and we could not of been happier with the results! Every time we look back there was no detail not captured! We would HIGHLY recommend Olegs and Rita to anyone who wants stress free photos! Thanks so much again for helping make our special day perfect!”
