Hi, I am Silviya.

I am a wedding photographer from Amsterdam where I live with my husband and two kids. I grew up in Germany and studied in Switzerland for a year. Love stroke me shortly afterward and I went to Amsterdam to marry the love of my life and continue my Media&Culture studies. That happened back in 2005 and we live now in a beautiful house with a garden and two wonderful kids.

Fast forward 10 years: After having worked as an independent web designer and WordPress coach I felt the need to express my creativity. And sliding into wedding photography was a blessing. My naturally exaggerated emotions at weddings, my love for happiness, romance and moments come together in this job.

With me as your photographer, you can be sure that I will be there for you. Your wedding, your family are very important to me and I will make sure to find and capture the moments of the best day in your life. As I will be like any other guest at your wedding you won’t notice me that much. However, you will have a couple of weeks later a memory of a lifetime when you hold your wonderful wedding album in your hands.

Looking forward to meeting you,

Silviya xx

Yes, I Do too.

I love weddings since forever and I can tell you now already that I will love your wedding too. I am looking forward to every wedding shoot because of all the surprises, happy faces, little crises (let’s be honest, they happen) and most of all EMOTIONS. I am a mess every single time when the father of the bride gives his speech or walks her down the aisle.

I offer different packages that you can view here and my favorite is the whole day package.

I love the getting ready phase as everyone tells stories and has a good laugh before the big storm. I look every time forward to the moment of the first look, the walking down the aisle, the portraits, the dinner – obviously – and then the Party!

If you like to see me pressing the shutter to the beat you know which package to book 🙂

So take a look at my site and if you like it write me an email so we can meet up and get to know each other.

Cheers, Silviya

Keep the moments where they belong. Forever

A wedding is a beautiful event. Everyone is coming to celebrate the best thing in the world: love. And as your love is very special to them a lot of emotions will come loose. You will be in such a trance that you barely notice everything that goes on around you.

I will capture those moments so you can cherish them for the next decades and generations to come.

My main goal is to blend in, be a part of your day and capture all the moments that are happening. To give you the joy of reliving the best day of your live.
