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 was my reminder 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 Masters 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. With great effort, I learned English to the best of my ability and bought the expensive camera equipment needed.
Since then, I have been blessed to photograph 400+ weddings!
Today, we are working together as a husband/wife team. Our passion for wedding photography is greater than ever before. We love being part of one of the best days of your life and to help create memories that will last a lifetime. We love to capture candid, emotional, lovely and happy moments. Talk to you soon!
