The story of a photographer
A storyteller, a creator & a connector serving Minneapolis, Minnesota and beyond
I am so excited you found your way here! My name is Anatoliy or Toly for short. I am a wedding photographer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Husband to a beautiful wife, and father to the world's most handsome boy. I've been as a wedding photographer for over 12 years. I specialize in fine art wedding photography using an approach that combines both documentary and fine art styles. I find great joy to share my passion for photography with my clients and document as they gather to celebrate their special day with their loved ones.
I found a love for telling stories back in high school during a photo lab class learning to develop film. From that time on my journey began documenting of the greatest moments in life. Photography shapes my thoughts and feelings. It's my means of expression. With that I have had an honor and privilege to convey that love for photography by documenting over 250 beautiful weddings in Minnesota and so many couples that are in love. I photograph heirloom.
My story telling style allows couples to revisit their special day again and again. I put my full attention to capture every precious moment. I'm honored to be able to capture authentic interactions and natural moments, and my ability to connect with my clients and create memories that last a lifetime is something I take a great pride in. I put my heart and soul into each wedding I have had the honor of documenting. My goal is for my clients to feel glamorous and for my photos to capture their love story in a timeless and elegant way to be cherished forever. You'll never forget the way you felt on your wedding day.
In my spare time together with my family we love volunteering, supporting local communities, to give hope and kindness to others and just simply love people to make this world a better place. If your heart is open you can also participate in an effort to make a difference by supporting a nonprofit organization here in Minnesota that provides free prosthetics to injured Ukrainian soldiers and civilians at www.ProtezFoundation.org At this time a portion of every wedding booked will be donated to Protez Foundation.
While I am based in Minneapolis, Minnesota I love to travel and available for elopements and destination weddings.

“We love all of our photos and have received quite a few compliments from friends and family. Anatoliy walked us through a tentative timeline prior to the wedding, which we found very helpful. He was great to communicate with and was quick to respond to emails. We have also heard specific feedback from our family regarding how nice Anatoliy was to work with during the wedding. On top of his amazing photography skills, Anatoliy truly goes above and beyond for his clients.”
