“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”
A Film & Digital Photographer
Proffesional photographer based out of Portland, who loves to shoot film & travel with my hubby. Hello there, my name is Vitalina. I’m a fine art film and digital photographer. Also known as a hybrid photographer. Best of both worlds. You basically receive a mix of digital photos with timeless, priceless photos that are taken on old school film, and sent off to the lab to be developed.
There’s a million different things I can tell you about me or why I love photography but I truly hope that my images can speak a thousand words for themselves. If you look at my photos and they make you want to look a little more, then we’re off on the right track! Ever since I saved up and begged my dad to let me buy a big expensive camera, I’ve been pursuing photography passionately and without regret. I’m constantly working on my craft, trying to improve and perform 110% better every time.
It’s taken me a lot of trial and error to get to where I am today, fine tuning my style in search for that perfect light and color. Being a part of something bigger than myself I get to be an author, a director, a story teller. To live in some of the most happiest moments of people’s lives is almost like saving the world, but instead saving a memory. We all have a story to tell. We make an impact whether it’s a big or small one. You may not mean a lot to the whole world, but you mean a lot to someone, leave them a lasting memory of your happiest times, of the people who mattered most to you and the milestones that you’ve reached.
I’m a believer and passionate about my work. I’m married to a wonderfully talented husband and I truly believe fate has brought us together. We compliment each other very well and he’s a big help to me in my career. He’s always supported and encouraged me to become better!
Our love started off with a long distance relationship, so I especially can relate to couples who live in different states or countries! We even practically share the same name! We love to travel, go on dates and explore in our own city! We have a sweet Pomeranian-mix puppy named Diesel, so if you bring your furry friend to your session I would love to meet them! I am currently working full-time at a doctors office drawing blood. I have my own little office, an amazing group of people I get to work with every day and I truly love what I do. Though I cause itty bitty pain I still find my job rewarding, especially when they say “hey I didn’t even feel that” or “you’re done already?!?”
If I could plan an entire wedding or event, I would! I love everything that goes into planning and research! I love working with flowers, calligraphy, styling and setting the table. If you’ve known me for a while then you know I’m always taking on new hobbies and passions. Always looking over the horizon in search of something more!
I love pasta, I love coffee, I love seasons, I love cuddles with my pup and I love my family and friends who are always there for me.
