This week, we hear from Diana Kartasheva, founder of Diana Kartasheva Photography. Below, Diana provides us with an exclusive insight into the company, including her style and approach to photography, and also tells us what she loves most about her job.
How long has your company been established and what do you do?
The company has been established since November 2013, but I have been a photographer for the past 7 years.
What do you love most about your work?
I love to explore and get the best angle of people who are involved in the shoot as models, as well as capturing those little details that combine to make the best moments in a couples’ life.
Do you have any exciting projects coming up?
I previously shot a ‘fairy love story’ for a couple, as well as their wedding. I’m very excited to be working with them again, shooting their ‘happy ever after’ with their newborn baby! It is an honour to be able to do this and see how the love I had the pleasure to witness has blossomed even further.
Describe your style and approach to photography…
My main aim is to catch life moments and natural emotions. I try to experiment with several different styles, such as using vivid colour portraits that highlight the personality of the model. At times I also enjoy making a series of images that border on a fairy tale fantasy setting. This style appeals to me due to my dreamy and romantic side. One thing that generally is always present in all of my different styles is how I almost protrude my models from the background, making them stand out and making the borders seem heavily divided.
What advice would you give to couples who are looking for a wedding photographer?
Make sure that you have a look at the photographer’s previous wedding images, and ensure that they are of good quality. As your wedding is a major event in your life, it is important that you can be confident in the final outcome.
Do you have a favorite UAE wedding venue to photography?
There are many places! Anywhere with gardens, natural lights, nature and a dreamy atmosphere!
Lastly, why did you choose to list with BCME?
I like to share my passion and creativity to help couples have the best memories of their big day. As BCME is a big wedding portal that brings everyone together to be there for the couples, and the team has passion for their job, which makes it unique wedding website.
