Hi there. Thanks for stopping by!

Congratulations on your engagement, and best wishes for your upcoming wedding!

We are Andriy & Lesya, a husband + wife photography team and owners of AZAR Photography.

Photography has been my passion since I was a teenager. When I was younger, I enjoyed taking photos of my younger brothers and my family. With the first money I earned by helping my father, I bought my first film camera. It was considerably bigger than the average camera, but I loved to take great images. I remember working in the darkroom for entire nights, and sunrise reminded me to take a break.  

As there is always a first for everything, in 1999, my friend asked me

to photograph his wedding. At the time, I did not think about photography as a potential career. In fact, I had recently finished University with a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering the very same year.  My family and I emigrated to the USA in 2004 from Ukraine

That is when I decided to do that which I really love. I learned English to the best of my ability with great effort and bought the expensive camera equipment needed.

Since then, photograph 700+ weddings!

Lesya started photographing weddings in 2011.  As of today, we are both lead photographers.

 Our passion for wedding photography is greater than ever before. We love being part of one of the best days of your life and helping create memories that will last a lifetime. We love to capture candid, emotional, lovely, and happy moments. Talk to you soon!
