Hello, my name is Aleksey, and I’m a Wedding and Family Photographer.  My wife, Leah, and I met while we were both in the Military.  She served for the United States of America, and I served for the Ukrainian Military.  While serving in Ukraine, I was given the opportunity to come to the United States and take military training classes out of Ft. Lee, Virginia.  Leah was also there training….. we met, and one thing led to another!  We both had very good careers ahead of us, but the only way we could be together was to resign our commissions.

   After waiting 8 months in Ukraine for my paperwork to get approved and a VERY long plane ride, I made it to the USA, and the next chapter of my life could begin.  We chose to settle down in Buffalo, NY because that’s where Leah grew up and we thought it would be a wonderful place to start a family and business.  I’d been a photographer for 8yrs, so opening my own photography business was the realization of a life-long dream.  Add to that the births of our daughter, Liliana, and son, Taras, and everything seems to be falling into place.

   Locally, I serve the Buffalo, Rochester and WNY areas, but will travel world-wide upon request.  I specialize in FULL SERVICE creative wedding and family photography.  I believe the images I produce should spark memories of the day’s events that Clients can cherish for a life time.  To that end, I also believe that printed artwork is more durable and less apt to change than digital.  I stress the importance of professional prints and albums to each and every Client.  Nothing beats a professionally designed and executed piece of wall art in your home.  I am the professional that can help you do this and I look forward to working you!
