Hey! I’m Sergey Lapkovsky, a destination wedding photographer. I love to travel and photograph weddings all over the world as I get my inspiration by discovering new locations and meeting interesting people.
I’ve been photographing weddings for 10 years. I used to shoot Canon, but six months ago I switched to Sony and found that it’s great for my needs (I still have Canon as a back-up camera).
Since every wedding is unique, I like to be prepared for everything and my gear helps me to shoot in different conditions.
Besides weddings, I enjoy shooting engagements and family sessions. I become good friends with many of my clients and I like to see how their families grow by documenting these timeless moments.
Sony a7 III – My primary camera. I love it so much, especially for great AF.
Canon 5D Mark IV – My back-up camera.
Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 – A great lens that I use in most cases. It’s very universal.
Sony Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 – I love to use this lens for artistic portraits and shooting in low light conditions.
Sony 85mm f/1.8 – An excellent lens for portrait photos.
