I’m a visual storyteller. If I had to describe my style, I’d say - candid, modern, ethereal, poetic. My heart sings when I get to capture the serendipity of light, colors, people, details - all lining up for that fleeting, magical moment, that will be forever kept and treasured in a form of a photograph.

Born in Lithuania, I spent my childhood years in Sweden - that had a major influence on my creative vision - I praise simplicity and minimalism in my surroundings and translate it to my work.

After getting a Bachelors degree in Moving Image from the prestigious University of Arts in London in 2009, I travelled the world, worked and lived in places like Oslo, Hong Kong and London, before settling on a tiny tropical island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, aka Key West.

I got into the wedding industry as a videographer's assistant, working on dozens of weddings before gaining confidence to shoot on my own. It taught me a lot about cinematic lighting and creative narrative, which I later applied to my photography.

When I’m not working, my world revolves around my family and I enjoy simple pleasures in life - cooking, reading, films, gardening. My biggest passion is traveling to remote destinations and experiencing different cultures. I’m very fortunate to be doing that as a part of my job. I get inspired from love stories, nature, art, raw emotions and I cry at every wedding.
