This, loves, is exactly how we like to spend our weekends: with an entire portfolio of pretty courtesy of the seriously talented Sergey Green. Think one breathtaking image after another filled with the sweetest moments you will ever lay your eyes upon and you are sooo on the right track. It’s SoCal beauty meets a photog that knows a thing or two about capturing every amazing moment… and we can’t get enough.
From Sergey Green… There is nothing that can keep me away from shooting photos. It’s in my nature. I have been a wedding photographer for over eight years now and have worked on over 350 weddings. It’s not easy to keep the passion going for many people, but with every year I love doing what I do more and more.
Every single event or shoot I do carries the unique style and unique people involved in it. That’s why I like photographing in a photojournalistic style and capturing true people and true emotions in the most beautiful way possible. When you hire someone to capture the best day of your life, it really has to be that feeling: “He’s the perfect photographer for our wedding!”
Welcome to the family, Sergey! We are so happy to have you! xo
