Hi! Welcome to my website! I'm Slavik Yasinsky. I'm based in Sacramento, CA, and photograph weddings in the Sacramento, Stockton, San Fransisco, and Tahoe areas. But I’m also willing to travel anywhere in the world!
Photography started for me as a hobby. As a teenager I would constantly take photos of nature, sunsets, and other things on my iPhone, and always dreamed of going bigger and one day investing into my own camera, my own collection of lenses, and one day shoot my own weddings. I spent hours, days, months studying, practicing, shooting and improving my skills. Fast forward a couple years (August 2015), my sister was getting married and asked if I would like to take her wedding photos. As scared and stressed as I was, I decided to take on that challenge—a decision I would never take back!
As I started booking and shooting more weddings and engagement sessions, I quickly noticed that every single wedding is different and every couple is very unique in their own way. The average amount of time a couple spends planning their Big Day is 14 months. I think if you were to attend a wedding of a couple you’ve never met, you’ll get to know their personalities, hobbies, inside jokes, their closest family and friends, and most importantly, their unique LOVE for one another, in that one day!
That’s why, although I believe that professionalism, equipment, style, and quality are all vital for a wedding photographer, my goal is to capture the uniqueness of YOUR LOVE and relationship throughout the day, while doing so in a creative and artistic style! I want you to be able to re-live your wedding day a year, five years, or twenty years from the day you get married, every time you open up your album.
I would love to get in touch with you! I’d love to hear about your vision for your wedding, grab some coffee with you two, and possibly come along on your exciting new journey! Just shoot me an email, and we’ll go from there :)
