Hello, we are Vitali and Masha, we are Outer Banks based photographers. Life in the OBX helped us to form a large network and strong bond with the local community; therefore, we are not seeing ourselves living anywhere else but here on the beach. Now we have a five-year-old son Nikita and two adopted four-legged babies: ‘puppy-brain’ dog Luna and kitten Shnoorok. 

Photography has always been my passion. As a kid, I have spent lots of hours with my older brother in the bathroom developing black and white film from old Soviet camera. I will never forget how excited I was when I got my first point-and-shoot camera and several years later my first DSLR.  

I’ve been mastering the art and science of capturing the greatest moments of your life for many years, and I absolutely understand that for you these moments are once-in-a-lifetime. My goal is to provide you with best experience POSSIBLE. I will not interrupt the flow of your planned event and will be able to provide you with the images that tell your story. 

Photography brings me joy capturing moments and watching others as they re-experience the emotion they felt. It gives you something to hold onto, it validates that what you felt was real. Photography is magical and this is why I love what I do.

“We received great maternity/family photos from Bold and Blonde! I absolutely love every photos. The session was fun and relaxed and we were even able to capture great shots of my two crazy pups who did not want to listen. Highly recommend!”
