Hello, I’m Katya and I’m the lead wedding photographer of Truly Influential Weddings.
As a professional, of almost a decade, you can only imagine how many types of personalities and couples I have interacted with.
In this time couples continuously told me that they feel relaxed and comfortable in my presence during the shoot.
My main objective is to understand what would make a person feel the most relaxed in front of the camera as quickly as possible.
To do that I normally ask my couples about how they met, what was the proposal like and sometimes we connect on the recent popular shows we’ve watched, places we travelled, our love for animals and food, sharing our knowledge of different cultures and our most recent adventures.
We giggle over silly things that make us all laugh and all of a sudden, without even realising it the tension releases and the couple becomes more relaxed in front of the camera.
We always tend to learn something new through being curious, open and lighthearted. Which results in happy smiles and a memorable photographic experience.
Without further ado, if you’re curious how wedding photography works, here it is:
It’s quite simple if I’m honest. The bottom line is, you came to this page to see if I can document your wedding day.
So just imagine…
A wedding photographer that takes care of every important moment on your wedding day. The one you trust. The one you feel comfortable with.
All you have to do is relax and be a part of those moments for me to document.
That’s what I can help you with the most…

When i was booking various things for my wedding I was unsure of a lot of them except one my photographer. Down through the years i gained a lot of knowledge on this subject. Experiences good and bad from family and friend who got married and without been arrogant I had a list of things I wanted my photographer to be and do. Firstly I didn't want to miss out on hours of " my wedding day". I spent months organising this party and i wanted to be in attendance to enjoy it with my family and friends not miss everything and have an album of" posed" photographs of myself and the bridal party that took hours to take and miss out on the fun and everything else that went on during the day. I wanted the mandatory few group photos lets say the photos for the wall !! I also wanted all my photos the good, the bad and the ugly every single one I've had friends who were only given a certain number and held to ransom for the rest (true story) !! I didn't want to pose on top of pianos upside down on stair cases etc. I wanted someone calm, professional with the ability to take control of the group been photographed "snap snap" take a few nice shots and everyone got back to the party. Basically i wanted my Wedding photo album to tell the story of my day not be a posed photo shoot of a group of people dressed up.Well I struck it lucky, I got all of the above and more with my photographer Katya Koliban.
Katya was an absolute dream to work with on our wedding day! She was so kind, pleasant, and professional with a clear vision. We were paired with her through Peach Perfect Weddings, and are so grateful she was available on our wedding day. Being that we were having an intimate destination wedding, great photos were a MUST so that we could cherish this day forever and share them with so many loved ones back home who couldn't make the trip. We just got our photos back this week, and so far everyone we have showed them to has gotten emotional over how beautiful they are! I cannot recommend Katya enough. My only regret is that I only hired her for 6 hours- I should have extended her through the entire evening! Anyone would be lucky to have her on their special day.

Extra time is charged at £75 per hour
We work unobtrusively, capturing every moment of your wedding day. It is evident that at some points we will have to take charge more than at other times. For example, family photos, to get through all the combinations, the photographer will direct groups of people in and out of the frame. At times such as reception or the ceremony, the photographer takes a step back and documents the events unravelling in an unobtrusive manner.
