I’m Natalya

A fine art wedding photographer based in Portland, Maine, but I work all over the United States. Photography has been my biggest passion since I was a little girl. My father was a hobby photographer and I grew up with a dark room in my house. I watched him develop film for hours every week and from a young age I became obsessed with creative imagery, visual storytelling, and the power of freezing a moment in time.


I come from a family of creatives


My brother is a director and director
of photography for commercials and documentaries (as seen here), my
sister is a passionate writer, and my
mother is an interior designer.

I left the corporate world to pursue
my passion for wedding photography.
I jumped all in, heart first, and I can't
tell you how grateful I am to do what
I love.

I grew up in New York City and I’ve
always had a passion for fashion.
For this reason, I think my approach
to wedding photography is fine-tuned
through an editorial eye. I also
capture the candid moments, the
details, and everything in between.

When I’m not photographing
weddings I love to travel.

Before I was a full-time photographer I managed projects to fight plastic pollution and climate change in Alaska, South Africa, Panama, Maldives, Paris and Jamaica. When I'm not documenting the beauty of life you can find me traveling, doing yoga, skiing, paddle boarding, being
a homebody, or hanging out with friends.

I went to University of Colorado at Boulder and studied Business Administration. I grew up in New York City, but have lived in Maine, Connecticut, Colorado, Australia, and Los Angeles. I moved back to Maine in 2015 to be close to family, the ocean, and to pursue my photography career.

I’m currently living near Portland with
my sweetheart and our two dogs.


The Team


Alisha has been shooting weddings for over 6 years and has photographed over 80 weddings


Photography became a passion when I realized that I was able to create something truly meaningful for the people photograph. I'm blessed to be able to capture a moment for someone and see their faces light up. I want to create memories for people to share with one another. My top priority is to establish a connection with every person I photograph. I’m a huge people person.

I want you to see me as a long time friend. I’m your right hand woman, your trusted confidant, your support system. Every wedding is unique to the client.

I get to know my clients and go from there.
I'm a very emotion driven person behind the
camera. There is no picture more beautiful
than someone in love. I use my skills to
capture specifically that – the emotion,
the moment, and the connection with
each person I photograph.



I’m Olive

I spend most of my days chasing balls, being stubborn, swallowing food without chewing, making pig noises, and going on beach walks. My mom thinks she's the boss but she's not, I am. 


I strive to minimize my environmental footprint in business and in life. When I worked for Parley for the Oceans, I traveled the globe working on conservation projects in The Maldives, Paris, Jamaica, Alaska, and at the United Nations. I’m a lover of Mother Nature, traveling to cultures different from my own, and giving back to my local and global community.
