Asya Shirokova

meet the photographer

I grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia and was exposed to many cultures and lots of travel at an early age. My love for stories, adventures and people led me to photography.

My approach is a blend of documentary and fine art, with a dreamy aesthetic and an unobtrusive, editorial eye. My favorite photographs are often unscripted. I strive to create images that are honest and beautiful.

I pursued my passion for photography and film at Temple University and founded ASYA Photography in 2008. Documenting the stories and the love between couples gives me so much inspiration, fulfillment and joy.

Photographs hold a sense of magic and nostalgia: they help preserve the memories we share with our families and loved ones for generations. It’s an honor to witness the joining of two lives together surrounded by so much beauty, family and love.

When I am not taking pictures, I enjoy cooking for friends, practicing and teaching yoga and meditation, spending time in nature, discovering new places and exploring the world. In the winters you can find me in India or Mexico escaping the cold and working on personal photo projects. I live in Queen Village with my husband Jonathan and our children, Nora and Max.
