Hello and Welcome!
I'm Orysa and I would love to be your photographer!
Thank you so much for journeying one step closer towards us working together and capturing your special moments! Even if this is your last stop and you choose someone else, I appreciate your interest and willingness to explore more of my work.
My Mission as a Photographer
When photographing, I am not only thinking about composition, lighting, settings and all the photography knowledge that I teach to my students; I am thinking about what small moments may make your heart full in the years to come: your little one's precious small hands on yours, the way your partner glances at you when you think you aren't looking, the details you worked so hard to create for your wedding. It is commonly said that in life you should enjoy the little things, and when we work together we can freeze those moments in time that are monumental occasions in your world.
I have done a variety of photographic work, including newborns, weddings, lifestyle, families, and portraits. If you come with an idea, I will capture it for you. Even if you don't have a full vision, I can help you with that as well. If you select me to be your photographer, and I hope you do, I want you to know that you can trust me to make you smile.
I run my photography small business as well as teach photography at the high school level. This allows me to hone my craft in a way that can also inspire others in the same instance.
About My Floral Work
My photography is primarily centred around macro florals and floral still life work. The approach I take to photographing is to look for unique and intriguing details that may have been overlooked by others. I am inspired by the characteristics I can bring out using both artificial and natural light. I try to edit my floral portraits to be vibrant and painterly. Expanding these details in large format prints forces my viewers to take in these features.
