Hello there. I’m Anton, a family and wedding photographer. My wonderful wife Raya (aka Raisa) is a water colour artist, she is also my assistant and second shooter. A few years ago we decided to escape from cold and dark Russian winters and end up here on the stunning Australian shore and we love it!

Together we're storytellers that passionate about capturing beautiful and natural photographs, without posing or interrupting moments.

If you love our work and consider invite us to cupture your wedding or family sory in pictures please get in touch.

We capture memories together with my lovely wife Raya. She is a talented watercolour illustrator and my assistant and second shooter.

We were in the same high school, but never saw each other there and met only when I graduated from university and was wondering what is there for me in the world. Raya saw who I am right away and encourage me to follow my passion. That’s how my hobby became my profession and a decade latter I am still a wedding photographer and I adore every thing about it!

We’re based in Sydney, Australia, but we are happy to travel and don’t charge any additional fees for travelling for a wedding in Sydney, Southern Highlands and Canberra.

In 2017 we decided to endeavour on a new venture and start to work under one brand of Across the Forest doing both photography and stationery and here is our new websites acrosstheforest.com.au.

We would be happy to hear from you. Please drop us a line using this form or write on [email protected] and we'll get back to you with availability and prices.
