About Me

Freelance Photographer

The photography is changing our perception of time, triggering underlying memories, otherwise lost. It is capturing a glance of the past mixed with the moment of now, creating an emotional connection from the future back to that moment. The sense of time and my desire to feel each second, remember it and cherish it's worth started my carrier as a photographer. From a hobby, photography became my life.

Our team has been traveling around the world and has captured events, places, cultures, and life in general. Each of our team members is specializing in a certain photography genre. Our portfolio includes wedding photography, documentary and storytelling photography, along with portraits and fashion photography. We worked on multiple business assignments for product photography and fine art commercial images for advertisement purposes. Our team offers events and wedding planning, videography services, and drone photography.

Raya,  founder of LightStrikes Photography



We found Raya and LightStrikes Photography online, but also a friend recommended their service. We couldn’t be happier with the fantastic job the team did. Our wedding was over 200 people and they managed to cover the entire day and even helped with some unexpected organizational issues that popped up. I wanted boudoir images included with the bridal glam mini photoshoot and it was absolutely enjoyable experience. Raya made me feel comfortable and made sure we are on time and I also have time to relax. The team was great at following all the action and capturing everything that was going on. I have not only the story with its craziness and noise captured in my album, but also the glam and the romance between the two of us. Can’t recommend the team enough! Thank you Raya and Lighstrikes team!

Raya and Vladimir did an AWESOME job doing our photography and videography for our cruise wedding. We had drone footage and images included in our gallery. They were very patient and understanding. We had not only the ceremony covered, but an island photoshoot and separate photo session on the ship. She made us feel very open and comfortable. I couldn't have thanked them enough. I will highly recommend them to anyone who needs an eye of vision.



Raya and Vladi were absolutely amazing! They were very patient with us and understood how to capture the 'right' moments. We did a Buddhist wedding which was almost like a go with the flow vibe. They use more documentary, storytelling style to cover that event. Then the next weekend we did a Catholic wedding with a tight itinerary. Photos turned out breathtaking and you can tell they put their all in the quality of work. We also opted for videos of both and was equally beyond satisfied. LightStrikes will definitely be your first choice when catching memorable moments with your families!

Raya and Vladimir did an absolutely wonderful job with our wedding photography and made an amazing video for us as well. We could not have been any happier with the results. We had a more informal reception in a converted barn. Raya was able to capture the essence of the celebration with many candid photos of the event as well as beautiful posed portraits. I appreciated how she was able to record the energy of the celebration in a non intrusive manner (a pet peeve of mine is photographers getting in the way at weddings). She was also wonderful to work with as she is professional, easy to communicate with, dedicated and enthusiastic about her work. I cannot recommend LightStrikes Photography enough!

Raya and Vladi are fantastic! They did our wedding photos and they came out great! Raya and Vladi really put everything out there to make sure they capture the moment and ensure your time is well spent. They are really passionate about making sure nothing is missed and you have no regrets about photos you could have taken. Their passion translates to the time they spend crafting, editing and delivering the final product. highly recommend!!

How do I give Raya more than 5 stars? Raya is such a fun, comfortable person, which helped my daughter relax and have fun with her senior photos. It really shows in her photos! She has loads of experience and knows the perfect angles and lighting for flattering shots. She is easy to contact and quick to respond. She had an unbelievably quick turn around. We are completely in love with her work!



Raya and her husband did an amazing job capturing our special day ❤️ . they were recommended by our friends, and we have seen their pictures before. We will be using them in the future for all our photography needs!



Raya took some photos of me and when I got them, I was AMAZED. They say one photo says 1000 words. Well Raya's photos say 1.000.000 words. They are simply the best. Lightstrikes is an amazing studio with great potential. On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate Lightstrikes with a 100. A perfect 100.



Raya is very talented photographer!!! She knows how to make a photo session fun, adventurous and exciting. Thank you, Raya, for a great experience we had during our session!
