Hello, My name is Vladimir (Vlad) Kolesnikov and I'm a photographer based out of New York City as well as the Hudson Valley in New York. My mission as a photographer is to capture and bring out the very best qualities in people and to preserve them through compelling imagery.

Capturing an event takes more than just documenting the day as it unfolds but also demands the attention to the moments and details that make up the atmosphere. Let me help you tell your story...

My love for photography began with capturing the intimate moments at nightclubs and photographing love in the streets of New York City. Since then I have moved to photographing weddings for various studios across the Hudson Valley as well as an independent freelance photographer in search of moments that capture the heart.

The beauty of a photograph lies in its ability to capture a feeling, a moment, or an emotion and to preserve it in a way that can be accessed and felt by the viewer for decades to come. 

It is my belief that it life is defined by certain monumental milestones in a persons life, from first birthdays to Bar Mitzvahs, from graduation parties to small family gatherings my goal as a photographer is to ensure that you can look back on your day and relive all the memories and emotions through your photographs.
