radostina

hey there. 

My name is Radostina (please feel free to call me Joy).
I'm a wedding, lifestyle and portrait photographer, located in San Francisco, California. I have a master’s degree in History but I’ve never worked in that field. Instead I was fascinated by the "magic" of the graphics editing software, typography and composition. More than 10 years I was a graphic designer and art director. That would have remained my primary job if at the end of 2009 I hadn’t started my design blog – 79 ideas and then felt in love in styling and photography. 
I love to shoot with both film (yeah, the old school film rolls) and digital. The images that you will see here are primarily shoot on film, because I love the colors and the dreamy look.

Here are few things that make me happy: 

music

I can't imagine my life without music!
My favorite musicians are: Depeche Mode / Hurts / New Generation.
