I’m Alina

New York City elopement and wedding photographer, wife, romantic, freedom and traveling lover.

I started my career as a photographer more than 7 years ago. Today the magic and joy of what I do is more alive than ever.

I have always sought to create naturally beautiful, editorial feeling images full of soul and connection. 

I love to combine natural-looking poses with candid in-between moments to give you photos that have that timeless, lifestyle vibe. My goal is to put you at ease and make the photoshoot experience as stress-free and fun as possible, to capture not only what is pretty (because I know you want to look good in your photos) but also what is real; love, connection, laughter & those little fleeting moments.

I love venturing to new places, so if you are looking for destination elopement or destination wedding photographer – you are in the right place! Just hit me up and let’s plan something special that reflects true you. I am open to any ideas!

Thanks for being here!

We had the pleasure of working with Alina for our engagement photography, and her professionalism, skills, and the incredible pictures she provided were truly remarkable. Without any hesitation, we immediately booked Alina for both our wedding photography and videography. Alina had a keen understanding of our vision and perfectly captured the essence of our special day. The highlight was the exceptional video created by Alek and Alina, which beautifully encapsulated every moment of our wedding. We are immensely grateful for capturing our cherished day.

Alina was AMAZING! She did the photography for our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier. She’s very professional, her work is flawless, she’s attentive, creative, and very easy to work with. We also got to work with her husband as our videographer and we’re so impressed how well they work together to produce our wedding video. I would highly recommend them both. Thank you for everything Alina!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alina and her team. They made sure everything was set up perfectly and the photography session went pretty smoothly and efficiently! I was fortunate enough to find her in the sea of photographers in NYC. Her portfolio looked amazing and surely she came through with her delivery! 110% recommend for anyone looking for a photographer in NYC or any locations!

Honestly, I love the photos that Alina took for us. I can’t wait to showcase them for my wedding. Absolutely gorgeous. I was feeling very nervous about my outfit but she reassured me that I looked gorgeous and that I shouldn’t have anything to worry about. And I was like you’re so sweet. And then when I saw the photos I was like oh my goodness, I’m so glad I picked her for photo shoot. Thank you so much, Alina!

Alina is an absolute gem! My husband and I had a wonderful maternity shoot with her – from the location choice to the flexibility in setting a date, she made it special for us. Her posing, angles, photography, editing, and timely delivery is worth every penny and you will not regret it. Not to mention she’s an absolute sweetheart. If you’re thinking about getting a photoshoot done for any occasion… book her now!!

I worked with Alina for my engagement photo shoot in NYC. She is a brilliant photographer. The raws she sent us were truly beautiful enough to be the real photos. She made the shoot itself comfortable and joyful.

We took our photos in Central Park with the cherry blossoms, so you can imagine how busy it was. She was able to pull us out of the chaos to focus on our photos. We also brought a 4-month old puppy and she was able to make a brilliant shot happen. I’m so grateful to have worked with Alina and cannot recommend her enough!

Alina was amazing to work with from beginning to end! I hired her to photograph a secret proposal in Central Park. She gave me some ideas for different spots that would be good, and recommended the best time to avoid crowds and bad lighting. She got their in advance to save the perfect spot.. it was absolutely gorgeous. I loved how we were able to take so many pictures in a number of different settings, all within the allotted time. And to top it off, we got the pictures sooner than expected and they came out AMAZING. My fiancee and I could not be happier. Thank you Alina for making our special day even more perfect!

Me and my boyfriend did a couple’s shoot with Alina in the west village and it was amazing! She’s professional, quick, communicative, friendly and flexible (we postponed our shoot 1 day because it was supposed to rain)

Neither of us had ever done a photoshoot before so didn’t know what to expect but she made us very comfortable. Had good suggestions for settings/poses but also encourages you to just interact with each other creating natural looking scenes in the photographs. Which is exactly what we wanted 🙂 She came well prepared with locations and improvised if she saw another opportunity.

Not only will you get good pictures you will also just have a great time!

I am not from New York but was visiting on a trip where I was going to do a secret proposal. I reached out to Alina via Instagram and she was very responsive and helped guide me on making the proposal a success from our first discussion. Alina made it easy for me to plan from Texas (she even protected me from myself). Once I made the proposal, Alina did great. She took a ton of great shots, had ideas and spots planned to make the best use of our time. Lastly, she turned the photos around quick and they are incredible. Would recommend Alina to anyone looking for a Professional Photographer.

Alina was so easy going and great to work with, I reached out only two weeks before our last minute wedding, and she was able to travel and be there for us on our day. Although we weren’t able to meet in person before, she made me feel so comfortable while taking pictures. Her energy and directing made it so easy to feel like friends were taking our pictures. She was willing to walk through a wooded/wet area and all over the grounds of the venue to get a wide range of shots which was everything we had hoped for. She made the whole process such a breeze since day one. We are so grateful we get to cherish these photos for years to come and cannot thank her enough. If you’re looking for an amazing photographer who will make you feel comfortable and laugh the whole time during your pictures, she’s the one!

Alina was awesome to work with and I would highly recommend her photography services to anyone looking for a photographer for any event! She shot a surprise party for me and her pictures and attention to detail were second to none. The pictures came out perfect and we loved every single one. If you are a looking for a photographer for any occasion including a proposal, party, portraits, or other events…Alina is the person to go to!

frequently asked questions


New York City based and mainly work all over the East Coast, but I’m always down to anything!


It varies based on each project and situation but I am an over-shooter and over-deliverer to a fault. You will have more than enough to choose from and enjoy!


Nope, the editing process is part of my creativity and I shoot images with a certain “finished product” in mind.


If it is 1-2 hours photoshoot, 30% downpayment is required to secure your date and time and the remaining amount you pay right after the photoshoot. I accept Venmo, Zelle or cash and you can choose the way which works better for you. If it’s wedding day or destination elopement (full day event) we can split the payment into a custom payment plan, maybe plan a monthly payment to help budget, but the remaining balance is due in full 2 weeks prior the event.


1. Fill out the contact form.
2. I squeal with excitement and make sure I'm open for your date.
3. We pick a baseline coverage for your needs.
4. 30% retainer and contract mutually signed.
5. We happy dance and celebrate making it official!


If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that some things are out of our control. For the most part I am flexible as long as we find a date that works mutually. If we can't find a reschedule date that works mutually, you forfeit your retainer.


If there are travel fees associated with any project, they will already be included in the proposal and coverage options I send you.


I am going into my 6th full-time year and I am in love with my work every single day.
