Hello there. I’m Anton, a family and wedding photographer. Together with my wife Raya we work as a family duo Across the Forest. Raya is a watercolour artist, who creates one-of-a-kind illustrations in her unique quirky style, also she is my assistant and second shooter at weddings.

A few years ago we decided to escape from cold and dark Russian winters and ended up here on the stunning Australian shore and we love it!

If you’ve landed here you’re probably about to start a new adventure with your partner and we want to be there for you to capture your celebration of love and this new exciting chapter of your lives together. 

Please get in touch for pricing and availability. We are based in Sydney, but happy to travel anywhere for weddings, elopements, and all celebrations of love.

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.
