natalya and denis

Natalya and Denis are editorial wedding photographer and videographer, who capture the modern romance of your day. We are a Nuremberg und Berlin based couple that aptly named our business “Theatre of Real Life”, and we work mixing the documentary approach with art, fashion, and a cinematic feel to our craft. With Natalya’s degree in art and design, and her trained creative eye, she always adds an artistic flare to every image she captures. Denis has experience in documentary film making, and in playing music with a band, which both help him to create an atmospheric, music driven documentary film that’s uniquely yours.

“Ob authentisches Editorial im Fashion-Look, oder Rundum-Begleitung am Tag der Hochzeit – die Fotografin Natalya Reznik schafft mit ihren Aufnahmen emotionale Erinnerungen für die Ewigkeit in Form von lebendigen, künstlerischen Fotos.”

We are passionate about traveling, going to museums, appreciate contemporary art, watching art house cinema, and walking through the streets of European capitals. We are flaneurs – we love to observe street fashion and daily life of major cities, and are always inspired by beautiful light and unique architecture.

During your day, we are not just “the vendors”. We will be your friends during your special day. Sharing your emotions: tension, anticipation, culmination of dreams, relief, joy, and happiness. This is all that we will need for our emotional storytelling. We will collect the intimate and big magical moments, and weave from them a large tapestry of your wedding day.

“Theatre of Real Life's elevated photography further's the tale that elopements can be just as stunning as the elaborate weddings we know and love.”

We are fascinated by family connections – we will tell your big day’s story through it’s reflection in your parent’s loving eyes, through joy of the children, the many hugs and kisses of your loved ones, and the tears and meaningful gazes from your guests during the ceremony. We will be “a fly on the wall” – unobtrusive and almost invisible, as we are here to capture every pure authentic moment that is unfolding in front of us. We want you to trust us completely so that you will have no need to worry about anything. Let us show you your world.

Since our children were born, we mostly have stayed local to Germany, but we love to do a few destination weddings per year, because we can’t resist traveling to Paris or Venice.  We are ready to capture, in any location, your intimate elopement or a big celebration.

Our works have been exhibited widely at photographic festivals and exhibitions. From New York to Berlin, we are published in many renowned magazines and blogs, such as Marie Claire, Vows of Style, Frieda Theres, and many others.

Of course, it is not all about us, it is about you!

If you feel that we could be the right match for you, connect with us, and we would be honoured to tell your story for the generations to come.
