How it all began (Natasha’s story):

I still remember our very first meeting. We’ve met at the event that I’ve visited to get some consultation with regards to my startup and Sergey was one of the mentors there. We had a short chat right after the official part has ended. At that time, he was living in St. Petersburg and I’m in Moscow. We’ve friended each other at the Facebook and chatted from time to time.
We’ve met several times when he was visiting Moscow. I was asking him multiple questions about my other projects, his advices and mentoring helped me a lot. From my perspective we had pure business relationships at that time and all our talks were only about business related subjects, but… later it appeared that he had other plans 😊

He found a new job and moved from St.Petersburg to Moscow in a year. We became to meet each other more often. Suddenly for me our business relationship turned to romantic in one wonderful day. We didn’t break apart since that time and got married in 6 months. Now we talk about our business subjects over the breakfast time as well as planning our future together.

Fun facts about us:

  • I am vegetarian with 10 years’ experience. And definitely it would be more comfortable for me to have relationships with vegetarian. I’ve never mentioned it to Sergey as I’ve never considered this as one of the critical criteria’s in our relationships. He he read my minds about it and told me that for a long period of time he also was vegetarian and don’t really mind to come back to it. After some time, when we already were in relationships, I’ve reminded him about his words, but he told me that this was a part of his strategy. Even until now we are joking at home that he appeared to be false vegetarian.
  • We have the same shoes and pants size ) I am happy about that fact because I love boyfriend style and sometimes borrow his jeans and he borrows my sneakers.
  • Sergey is running marathons and my favorite sport is to read a book sitting on a couch. I used to look at the runners as they are prom another planet. I’ve never thought about running for over 35 years of my life but this summer I felt a desire to go for a run. I’m still doing my best not to leave my couch but at least the idea of running does not look that crazy as before.

  1. Great use of depth of field and overall composition, as a commercial photographer in New York City I see alot of different work but this stands out. Nice job.

  2. I loved hearing their stories, how neat! Happy anniversary to them! The locations for the session in Moscow are such a cool backdrop and their pictures are stellar!
