About us

Wedding photographer and videographer team

We are husband and wife (Iaroslav is the videographer and Anna is the photographer).  Our surnames are almost unpronounceable - but you can try if you want - Mrs. Hmelnitkaia and Mr. Hmelnitki.

First of all, we want to say that we absolutely love our job.

Also, don't forget to visit the testimonials and reviews sections of our site. They say more about us than we can do.

A bit of history

Wedding photography and videography studio

We both are quite creative persons. Iaroslav the videographer has a background in arts. And Anna (photographer) has a background in journalism.

We started our career in 2009 by founding our own wedding photography and videography studio (Happywedmd.com). As a result, we have had the pleasure of meeting great people and capturing memories that last a lifetime.

We moved to the UK in 2016 and this was one of the best decisions in our lives.

A little secret

Bristol wedding photographer and videographer

We are professionals with a great of amount experience, stress-proof people. And of course conflict-free. This is really important. I’ll tell you a little secret: wedding photographers’ forums are filled with posts about conflicts between the photographer and the wedding guests.  For example, due to the fact that the guest came with his own camera, the photographer became very nervous... Because the guest’s flashlight prevented him from taking good photos. Also, there are a lot of situations where the photographer and videographer cannot get along with each other. But not in our case.

What we offer

Wedding photography and videography packages

Together we offer advantageous wedding packages. They include both professional wedding photography and videography services.

We are professionals - courteous, and respectful of the sensitivities and the rights of other employees and guests at the wedding. Obviously, we always deliver outstanding photo and video results.
