Hello beautiful people and thanks for visiting my website. I truly appreciate you are reading this page right now.  It means you like my work and want to know more about the person who stays behind the creation of all the photography you encounter in my portfolio. Let me guess: you are looking to hire your personal professional photographer for your special event or personal portrait session or you are just looking for creative inspirations. Am I right? 

And here are some PERSONAL FACTS about me:

My full name is Stanislava, but everyone calls me Stani...hmm... it’s just simpler I guess :), so call me Stani if you wish to.  I am Bulgarian born and raised. If it is the first time you speak with me over the phone don’t wonder where this accent is from.  

Having spent a significant part of my youth in the Big Apple, where I got my BFA in photography from The School of Visual Arts , I consider myself partly New Yorker.  But as a result of a strange serendipity for which I credit my adventurous spirit and my husband, since I now call myself a Californian girl.  Falling in love with all the diverse   and unique nature that California can offer inspired my creativity even more through the years.

In 2012 when I moved to the Bay Area of San Francisco I officially started my event and portrait business Stani Photography. With a background in documentary editorial and fine art photography I seamlessly adapted  that style into my wedding and portrait photography. 

I love traveling and exploring the world around me.  Learning about different cuisines and people from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures opens my eyes to even more possibilities in creating timeless work.   

If you don’t find me behind the camera with my clients’ in front of it, I am somewhere outdoor with my kids, documenting our travel trips or daily activities. Hopefully one day that work will be published in a book.
