We are Andrew and Inga, a couple of professional wedding photographers, based in Toronto. For us, wedding photography is not just an ordinary job we take for granted. It's an opportunity to craft striking, meaningful pictures that couples and families can cherish long after the milestone has passed.
We never stop self-development and always strive for excellence. We take inspiration from fashion photography, arthouse cinema, contemporary art, all kinds of music, and of course the true emotions of our models. Yes, it's models, we don't like to call them clients.
You can find more info on our website: http://astorastudio.com/
We are often asked, so it is worth mentioning, of course, we do pre-wedding, engagement, love story, and maternity photoshoots.

So happy we chose Astora Studio
We organized our wedding over a short period of 6 weeks during Covid and were so lucky to find Astora Studio on Wedding Wire. I can't say enough good things about the quality of their work, their attention to detail, how easy they are to work with, or how happy we are with our finished photos. They captured our day so well. And they didn't come with the limitations of many photographers: extra charges, travel restrictions, etc. They brought in a drone (their own idea) that really added to capturing the beautiful event we organized on a country property outside of Toronto. They arrived early at no additional charge to take photos before the wedding began and stayed late to capture our celebration. They worked hard while at our event - and worked so well together as a team. Because there are two photographers, they capture many little moments that just one photographer might otherwise miss. They provided just enough direction without being pushy, but enough to get the shots they needed. I wanted lots of shots of our guests and they listened. They had special techniques for creating dreamy effects and ideas of how we could pose. They captured beautiful, unexpected shots of those closest to us and our decor without us ever having to ask. Our photos were ready within a few days of the wedding! Andew and Inga (Astora Studio) are very talented as well as just being nice people. I'm so glad we trusted them with this highly important, special day. Highly recommend!Sent on 18/10/2020

Made our wedding day!
Did we worry about our photos before our wedding? Of course, we did!
But as soon as Inga and Andrew arrived, the anxiety immediately went away. It felt that wedding photographers were good old friends invited to a family celebration.
It was fun and mysterious, easy, and solemn. Nobody commanded: “Sit here, look here, smile...” Sometimes we just heard the quiet voice of our photographers encouraging us behind the scenes.
How did they make these photos so intimate? We think only real professionals could notice something in us that we didn’t recognize ourselves.
Were we really so magical and so in love? We can trust our wedding photos, so I hope these are our real feelings.
Thank you, guys, for amazing pictures that we can’t break away from!

Wedding Photoshoot Like From My Dreams
Since childhood, I dreamed of a wedding in an old castle. The princess in a wonderful dress and the prince on a white horse finally meet, so as not to ever part. I wouldn't give up my dream for anything in the world.
Inga and Andrew, our wedding photographers, helped us create a fabulous wedding photoshoot. They didn't miss even the smallest detail.
The guys were very fluent in the play of light and shadow, professionally used special effects. They definitely knew what result they wanted to get.
I recommend these talented artists, Inga and Andrey to anyone who wants to make their dream a reality.

I wish every couple has the wedding photographers as we had
Every couple knows: choosing a wedding photographer is always not a simple task. We dealt with the same difficulty before our big day.Sent on 02/08/2020
Luckily, I saw an advertisement on Instagram from Astora Studio, and I clicked it. The photos captured by these talented photographers blew my mind. From the first seconds I understood - they were what I was looking for. I loved all their pictures, their style, and of course, bridal portraits.
I got the response in a few hours, we met and booked them as our wedding photographers team.
The atmosphere during our photoshoot was very friendly, calm, and sincere. Andrew and Inga helped us pose, feel confident in front of a camera, and enjoy the process.
We got our amazing photos in a few weeks and were speechless - we couldn't believe we looked so amazing! These talented guys captured portraits for all guests and did not miss any important moment of our day.
Inga and Andrew, we are so happy we had you as our photographers!

Guys, you are unique. When a person finds himself and his vocation, a masterpiece is obtained! Each of our photos is a masterpiece created by you. Yes, yes, we are not afraid of big words. We thank you for the ease with which our day passed.
Of course, we were worried before the wedding photoshoot, but the first click - and we are not in a front of the camera, we're playing, laughing, dancing, running, have a looot of fun. You definitely made our day))).
With all my heart, thank you!

My adorable husband and I are running Astora Studio wedding photography.
It’s impossible to capture truly candid moments if a photographer doesn’t have a gentle heart. It's not easy to illustrate the purity of this incredible moment. It is possible only if a photographer loves working with people and can pass all emotions through the innermost depths of their soul.
I never hide behind the camera. I am always in the heart of events. I live every moment with you.
I brush my tears away when the father leads his beautiful daughter to the altar. With a trembling heart, I watch you exchange rings. I laugh when your parents tell ridiculous stories from your childhood during the speech, I admire the grace of the first dance and the sincerity of the first kiss...
Photography is my love and I am in love with photography.

My adorable wife and I are running Astora Studio wedding photography.
From childhood, I was always attracted by light. It amazed me, how the light could travel unimaginable distance from the Sun right into the Earth just to shape a beautiful rainbow after the spring rain.
Impressed by the nature of light, I've decided to study physics at university. Theorems and scientific approach helped me understand the laws of nature. But there are something formulas can not express - human emotion and the atmosphere of happiness.
The technical complexity of photography along with the unfathomable spirit of human love made wedding photography a perfect match.
A wedding is not just a photo session, it's a unique experience that happens between two people and cannot be set out beforehand. I find joy in capturing these precious moments in the most favorable light.
For me being a professional photographer means making people feel easy and comfortable in front of the camera. And then, to shoot amazing photos that go beyond my clients’ expectations.
