About Lilac Studios

Meet the team behind the lens

With a team of fellow photographers and videographers, we share a passion for photography and a dedication to providing a flawless experience for our clients. Our aim is to make them feel comfortable in front of the camera and to guide them throughout the entire process.

We want you to look back at your photos, and feel it all over again.

When we are not photographing weddings...

...We love to meet new people, travel together, cook, and spend time outdoors canoeing, hiking, biking and fishing. We brew IPA beer, always DIY our home, and play with our bossy cat. We are excited that you found us! We can’t wait to meet you and create something special together.

We don’t take the same “cookie cutter” wedding photos.

We describe our signature style as the perfect balance between editorial and candid. We aim to capture all the fleeting moments in a classic and cinematic style, creating timeless photography and videography.

Planning our own wedding has helped us understand our couples on a new level.

It's important for us to hear your vision and understand your specific desires. We aim to support you by capturing every single moment of your wedding day, enabling you to reminisce about your favorite moments and those you may have missed amidst the busyness of the day. It was only after our wedding, when we saw our photos, that we even recalled the details of our venue decor and cake! We laughed and teared up as we witnessed our families interacting in dancing and silly games. We were so overwhelmed that we didn't fully remember these moments until we looked back at our photos. Therefore, we truly understand the significance of capturing these precious moments.

We got your back every step of the way.

The Team

Natalia

Creator of Lilac Studios, Lead Photographer and Customer Happiness Guru

Natalia’s creative path started as soon as she could hold a pencil. Her mom had to travel to larger cities to buy countless coloring books and signed her up for art classes at the age of 4. Although she tried many things, it was when she got her first camera that she knew it was her way of capturing the beauty of the world, people, and finally, love stories.

NATALIA’S SUPER POWER IS PUTTING HER COUPLES AND THEIR CLOSEST ONES AT EASE AND RADIATING CALM ENERGY THROUGHOUT THE CHAOS OF A WEDDING DAY.

MOST CLIENTS DESCRIBE HER AS DOWN TO EARTH, KIND AND DETAIL ORIENTED PERSON.

Matt

Creator of Lilac Studios, Lead Videographer

Having a hobbyist photographer dad, who would convert the kitchen into a darkroom on a daily basis, Matt was surrounded by photographic paper, film, and red bulbs since early childhood. His natural curiosity for the technical process and artsy mind led him to pursue Vision and Sound Engineering Studies, where he could combine both worlds, filming short documentary films and exploring the technical aspects of the film industry simultaneously. It didn't take him long to realize that what he loved most was capturing the emotional stories of people.

MATT IS ALL ABOUT PERSONALITY AND NARRATIVE OF YOUR LOVE STORY.

OUR CLIENTS DESCRIBE HIM AS AN EASY-GOING PERSON. IT IS EVIDENT THAT HIS JOKES, HUGE SMILE, AND DEEP LAUGH MAKE PEOPLE SO COMFORTABLE AROUND HIM.

Tom

Lead Editor & Marketing Specialist

As Matt’s younger brother, Tom has been surrounded by photography and art since he can remember. Starting as a content creator in times when YouTube wasn’t owned by Google, he developed a great understanding and knowledge about film, editing, and storytelling. His first creations were sports documentaries, as he is still a huge fan of the NBA and soccer (YNWA!). You can see some of those influences in his creations, especially in our fast-paced trailers.

HIS EXPERTS KNOWLEDGE AND GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL MAKE HIM A PERFECT PERSON TO TRANSLATE YOUR STORY INTO AN EDITED FILM.
