2- Sarah Kang Photography

San Francisco, California

Hi, welcome to my website! I’m a San Francisco-based photographer, and I’ve been photographing weddings and families since 2007.  My style is photo journalistic/documentary, and as you may have gathered from my photos, I’m drawn to emotions, beauty, and authentic, natural moments. 

I was born in Korea and raised all over the US.  I’ve also lived in Boston, NY, and Paris. I’ve always loved the adventure of discovering new places.  I love to travel and especially enjoy finding out-of-the-way spots where nobody speaks English. 

I married my best friend and the kindest person I know on a tiny island off the coast of Tuscany. These days you can find us in San Francisco seeking out good wine bars, spending time with friends and family, rock climbing, or brushing up on our Italian – all made twice as fun with our carefree young son (except for the wine part 😉 ).  

Thanks for visiting, I’d love to learn about your story…drop me a line!

3 – Rob Dodsworth

Norfolk-UK, England

I live in the beautiful Norfolk Broads with my wife and two children. I have been photographing weddings and families since 2010.

One of the best things in life is a good story and that’s what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by.

I get my best images when you’re just being yourselves – natural light and natural emotions!

10- Igor Matey

Voronezh, Russia

My name is Igor and I take pictures of people.

I love to run in the morning, in the early mornings, preferably in the forest for 5-7 kilometers, and when the form allows and for 10-15 kilometers. I also like to swim, swim in the water for 1,5-2 kilometers, or better in the sea. I love joy on my parents face, sincere conversations with people close in spirit, to drive my car, practically all the lines of the runner Murakami and wretched Welsh, to watch a movie after which you can not find a place. I like to leave the theater, bringing out something new, unknown. Generally I like people, different … not always it certainly turns out. I like to travel, it is not important where, it is not important with whom, it is important as …
If something from me said resonates with your idea of ​​life, I’m sure we will find a common language.
