Contact Vasyl Balan

Hello! My name is Vasyl. I really like to take photographs of happy people all over Ukraine and abroad. I like to meet new people and travel a lot. I would like to tell the story of your wedding day in pictures for you, your children and your grandchildren. 
I love to be invisible, to blend in like one of your guests. I really like to reflect the atmosphere of the wedding day and the mood and emotions of the people. I also understand how important the family pictures are on this special day. I want to give you an opportunity to re-live that day, with all the emotions and atmosphere, every time when you look at your wedding pictures! I prefer to take candid pictures, not posed, theatrical photographs. 
I try to find new and unusual aspects of color and emotion in pictures. I pay a lot of attention to the important details which sometimes are so hard to notice. I try to avoid unnaturalness in composition and frame. On your wedding day, you should not have to worry about your photos or your photographer. Relax knowing I am ready to capture your smiles, happiness and sheer joy with photos you'll love and cherish forever.

1 Real Recommendation

Julia + Victor
Photographer who can be advised without thought. Even the guests of our holiday noticed that a person is a professional of his business, always chooses a perspective and makes several photo options. It's not just a person who comes to your holiday, picks and favors, it's primarily a person who becomes a part of your holiday and makes the best photos. There is a previous communication that helps in contact during the holiday, nobody needs time to "relax and tune in", because everything goes at a crazy pace. When we got the photo amazed, that's the moment when the photo was "like a pinterest," Read More and they got even better. In addition, the album is packed in a wooden case and separately printed photos in a leather envelope with a small hide on the flash drive, which we did not even immediately find. The canvas is made on canvas and looks like an oil painting. All at a high level, looks very expensive, professionally made and really decent work. Thank you, Vasily, do not miss this enthusiasm for your business and we want a lot of grateful customers.
