i’m so pleased to finally give a proper introduction to the winners of our Bridal Expo vendor draw: Foto Family! Photographers Iryna and Anna have been in the photography business for six years, originally from Ukraine, and travelling around the world before making a new home in edmonton, where they now own a small studio and wedding photography business. allow us to formally introduce you!
tell us about the name ‘Foto Family’…
it’s simple – we chose it because our studio is like a second home, and our team is like a family.
where is your team from originally? what do you like about edmonton so far?
originally we are from ukraine, and have lived in edmonton for over 10 years. the best thing about edmonton is, of course, the people and how nice and caring they are.
now tell us about your business…
our team travelled to many countries around the world gathering experience in photography and for one year we worked in ukraine. recently, we opened a photo studio in edmonton, and we tried hard to make it a studio that suits the needs of every type of client. this includes having various backdrops and accessories to suit our wide variety of clients, which include large families, couples and children.
what is your favourite thing to do when you’re not taking photos?
Iryna: I personally love to paint in my free time, travel and meet new people. Anna likes to experiment with graphic design, creating pamphlets, business cards, calendars, advertisements, photo albums and slideshows on the computer.
what is a career highlight so far?
the highlight of my career was after one of my first weddings, when i heard the excitement and appreciation from the newlyweds after doing a photoshoot with them. they were incredibly satisfied with how the photos turned out and in turn their appreciation made me realize that i was on the right career path, doing what i love.
what is your favourite type of photoshoot?
our favourite events to shoot are weddings of young couples and capturing one of the most important moments in their lives, giving each wedding the special attention it deserves. we truly enjoy meeting with each couple and discussing all the details, not only about the photoshoot, but helping with any wedding-related questions or concerns they may have.
