cinematic soulful chic

Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

Life is a collection of moments and I am there to reserve those moments from your wedding day in a way to show the world what YOUR love looks like. Photographing authentic and artistic images is what makes my heart beat fast. I love making images that are filled with light, movement and elegance. My love for artistic images has its roots in my background. Growing up I completed 10 years of art school, where I studied everything from sculpture to oil paining. My amazing teachers focused on the classical approach for the most part and taught me how to see the light, colors and composition that no photography book or seminar ever will!  My goal is to make my shots look like snapshots from a movie: dynamic, atmospheric, soulful. I want to tell the story of your day, meanwhile blow your mind with breath-taken portraits. I feel blessed to have couples who share my vision. If you believe that my style is what you are looking for, I would love to hear from you and learn about your wedding!

I am incredibly honored to win several highest wedding photography awards (Fearless Awards) as well as appearing on the covers of Pittsburgh magazine, and having been featured/picked by editors in Vogue Italia, Strictly weddings and Whirl magazines among others. It means a lot to be appreciated by this industry, but more importantly by my couples who invite me to document their special day.

«Kristi Telnov is incredible. She is a professional wedding photographer in any sense of the word, from her truly artistic eye which makes her photos look like they are from a cover of Vogue and picture any person at their best, to her technical abilities which transpire in her ability to use natural light to her advantage and are underpinned by her original background of being a professionally trained painter/artist. Kristi Telnov’s work is a reflection of her personality and her sophisticated classy taste combined with her natural talent to capture moments that are truly authentic. On top of everything else she has an easy-going personality and is very involved in making moments of life into a magically memorable memory».
