Her understanding of shot composition, which is impressive on its own, is married with her obvious talent in the art of photography. And yes, art is correct term for her work
While I had a session with Ana earlier this summer, I am still thinking about it months later with fond reflection. Ana was such a joy as a human being, kind, personable and quite funny. As someone who'd had little to no experience posing in front of a camera, she put me completely at ease with her relaxed demeanor that didn't hinder on her professionalism. I posed, she photographed, we explored various locations, I nearly tripped in my heels and the whole experience was one I'll never forget. Because of covid my graduation was lackluster as an understatement, but Ana helped make it special by capturing the memories I was eager to get. All the while she showed me the photographs that she was taking as our session progressed and checked in repeatedly to make sure I was happy with the results. And I was more than happy. My jaw was on the floor for the most part. While Ana made a quip about "the camera doing most of the work" during our time together, there is absolutely nothing that can substitute for a gifted photographer's eye. Which she has. Her understanding of shot composition, which is impressive on its own, is married with her obvious talent in the art of photography. And yes, art is correct term for her work. I'll recommend her to anyone and everyone, acquaintance or friend, for the foreseeable future. What a wonderful and talented person she is.
Incredible down to earth photographer with an artistic eye
Ana is an incredible down to earth photographer with an artistic eye, full of energy and very talented at her craft. I'd highly recommend her to anybody who wants a true professional.
You can really see how much time and effort she puts into editing the photos to bring the images to life
I booked my first professional photography experience through Ana and I had such an amazing experience. She was super friendly and made me feel at ease during the photoshoot. It was my first time, so she provided posing prompts to help me look more natural during our session. Her turn around time was extremely quick and you can really see how much time and effort she puts into editing the photos to bring the images to life and making you feel flawless.
She is a MAGNIFICENT photographer, editor, and presence
Anastasia has been my photographer since I moved to Vancouver. She has become without a doubt a necessary piece of my content creation. She is a MAGNIFICENT photographer, editor, and presence.

not only did the photos turn out amazing, but the session was really fun
I had a couple’s session with Ana in November and not only did the photos turn out amazing, but the session was really fun!! We did the express session and I can’t believe how much we were able to fit in. I felt really relaxed the whole time. The cues given were really helpful to ensure the photos turned out super cute.
The finish look was suburb I loved the that she was able to have my skin looking flawless
Working with Ana was an experience I will never forget. She was able to capture the story I wanted to tell just perfect. I remember feeling so comfortable with her as my photographer she talked with me and I'm usually so nervous but it was so calming to me. My very first trip to Vancouver and I made the best choice when I chose her to take my photos. The finish look was suburb I loved the that she was able to have my skin looking flawless. I can't wait to travel back and work with her again.

Stop what you’re doing and book Ana now. My fiancé and I met her for the first time for an engagement shoot — and we fell in love with her!

I was fortunate to have my first photo session ever with Anastasia
What a beautiful experience this was! I was fortunate to have my first photo session ever with Anastasia and would definitely recommend her to anyone, especially those who are self conscious (like me).
I wasn't sure what to expect from this session and hoped to come out with one or two good shots. Well, I must say, I had a very tough time narrowing down my shots selection as almost all of them were that good!
She brings out the best of me in her pictures
Very good, artistic, professional and amazing photographer. She brings out the best of me in her pictures. Very recommended and awesome individual.

Josh, Daniel, Ana & Avi are the best! Our photographers and videographers are all so amazing. They are all talented.

Ana managed to create very friendly atmosphere and took lots of stunning, candid pictures
We had an amazing couple photoshoot with Ana! It was our first time taking professional pictures as a couple and we were a little bit nervous. But as soon as we started, Ana managed to create very friendly atmosphere and took lots of stunning, candid pictures. We also brought our pup with us, Cherry was a little supermodel that day. We enjoyed the whole experience of this photoshoot, and it was a great pleasure working with Ana!

We are so happy with the photo album as it captures our relationship beautifully
We spent so much time looking for a photographer and as soon as we stumbled across Ana’s work, we immediately fell in love. From the moment we contacted Ana, we felt well taken care of. I had so many questions for Ana and she patiently and kindly answered all my questions, putting me at ease. Prior to the photo session, Ana also gave us tips on outfit selection which we greatly appreciated.
On the day of the photoshoot, Ana made our session so much fun! It was filled with laughter and enjoyment. Ana is able to give us guidance while keeping true to our personalities. We are so happy with the photo album as it captures our relationship beautifully. Thank you so much Ana for capturing these moments for us to keep for many years to come!

It was a euphoric experience and we got completely lost in each other
Ana came out to Tofino to capture my boyfriend and I down on the beach. She had such wonderful ideas to use different poses, backgrounds, props… and we ended up using my guys motor bike! THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE during the shoot! It was a euphoric experience and we got completely lost in each other, and almost forgot Ana was capturing our love! The results… SPECTACULAR! I will be revisiting the gallery of photos weekly!
She was so professional, punctual, and shared the results so quickly!

Anastasia is able to capture people, places and things by utilizing light and colour to the best of her ability.
Anastasia is an amazing photographer! When I met her for the first time I immediately felt comfortable and could tell that she takes great pride is ensuring that her photos are up to her own set standards. Anastasia is able to capture people, places and things by utilizing light and colour to the best of her ability. She is able to show a series of emotion through her photos that make you feel like you are there in the moment.
Anastasia is patient, caring and I would 10/10 recommend her as a photographer for portraits, events, etc.
“We let her have full creative control of our wedding and engagement photos”
Ana was amazing at communicating and explaining her processes. We let her have full creative control of our wedding and engagement photos. We are the most awkward people in front of the camera but she posed us in awesome beautiful pictures!! She was also very accomodating and respectful.
- Anna Lisa & Heinzen
“On our wedding day, she was assertive and professional which we greatly appreciated”
She gave great direction and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We knew we wanted our engagement photos captured in nature and she offered many wonderful ideas and was very patient with us throughout. On our wedding day, she was assertive and professional which we greatly appreciated. We can't thank you enough, Ana - you were a massive part of our big day!
- Selina & Geoff
“Her energy and her direction on our big day really helped make those photos so amazing”
Ana made us super comfortable since day 1 with our engagement photoshoot. We are so happy with our wedding photos and how they turned out! Her energy and her direction on our big day really helped make those photos so amazing! Even before the wedding, she was always willing to help with vendor recommendations and timelines, she really is godsent! Thank you for being you and being part of our big day! We really appreciate everything that you have done for us on our wedding day.
- Janet & Eugene
On the wedding day, she was like a ninja. She and her second shooter were omni-present, but always just out of eye-line, snapping photos that you didn’t even know you wanted. She would problem solve so you didn’t have to, which is awesome.
When you are setting out to plan a wedding there are so many things you have to think of and consider – often with no frame of reference. Are these good caterers? How much is the dress?? What is the difference between wedding make-up and glamour make-up??? These are big decisions, made with a paucity of experience. So, if you have never done this before, feel free to take some of my experience with photographers and use it as your own: hire Ana.
We got into contact with Ana a little under a year before our wedding and she was an amazing help not only with the photography (which was gorgeous!) but with planning a timeline for the day and making sure that the focus was on what we as individuals held to be important. Ana did an engagement shoot for us (we caught the cherry blossoms in downtown Vancouver!) and in an hour was able to capture such a variety of photos: different locations and backdrops, poses and overall feel. She was efficient and focused, but we never felt rushed! If you’ve never done a photoshoot before she has tons of suggestions to make you feel comfortable in order to capture your best self, and if you have specific ideas, she’s more than willing to follow your lead. In between these shots, she will find some tender moments between you and your partner, when you didn’t even know you were “on”. These can be some of the best memories to have frozen in time.
On the wedding day, she was like a ninja. She and her second shooter were omni-present, but always just out of eye-line, snapping photos that you didn’t even know you wanted. She would problem solve so you didn’t have to, which is awesome because from that first moment you see your bride start to walk down the aisle, everything else pretty well melts away.
So, if you have little experience with photographers, or a lot, hopefully what I have written here can lend some small insight into my satisfaction with working with Ana, and my confidence that she will be able to provide that same superlative experience for you. Your wedding will be the experience of a lifetime: have Ana capture it for you.
