Karina & Maks
A husband and wife team who adore capturing love stories for a living.
We are based in Portland, Oregon but love being able to travel the world and experience stories and cultures beyond our home.
We are best friends, who spend 95% of our time together
We love to laugh together, to tease each other, and crack jokes any chance we get.
We love Jesus, camping in the summer, holding hands, eating spicy food, playing Catan, or watching The Office.
But most of all we love what we do and cant believe we are lucky enough to call this our job.
-We believe laughter is good for your soul.
-That happiness is a choice, and we try to choose it daily.
-We believe that loving someone is hard and messy, yet beautiful and life-giving.
-We believe there is magic in the ordinary moments of day to day life, you just have to open your heart to see it.
Photography gives us the ability to reach out in this big world and make it just a little bit smaller with each new person we get to photograph.
With every new face we get in front of our camera our small world expands.
Capturing the story in your eyes, experiencing your culture and traditions, being invited into your love story is something we will forever be grateful for.
Love in its truest form is the most liberating, most real thing anyone can experience in this world. It brings out the best in people, and honestly it looks so darn good on everyone! It brings out those honest smiles, uncontrollable laughs, lingering kisses, tender glances, tight embraces and a rawness and honesty that this world so badly needs to be reminded of. We believe documenting and telling your story will make this world a more beautiful place, simply by capturing it.
