Cleveland Wedding Photographers and Filmmakers


Human Artist Photography is a Cleveland based Wedding and Portrait photography studio. Yevhen and Julie started Human Artist Photography in 2013. Our work is best known for its colorful, contemporary, fun, candid, and beautifully photographed stories that celebrate emotional connections.

Principal Photographer



Hey there, folks! I’ve been told that I’m a pretty passionate person, especially when it comes to photography. There’s just something about the process of creating beautiful images that gets me all fired up! And let’s not forget the rush of seeing those images in their final form – it’s like Christmas morning every time!

As a business owner and photographer, I can honestly say that I’m living my dream. And the best part is that my love for what I do shines through in every image I create. I mean, who wouldn’t want to spend their days capturing love stories and creating beautiful memories?

Believe it or not, I actually started out on a different path. I studied philosophy and theology with the hopes of becoming a priest! But as it turns out, I was always meant to be behind the camera, capturing life’s most precious moments.

I’ve come a long way since my days as a school photographer and graduate student creating headshots. But one thing has never changed – my passion for photography. It started as a hobby, but it’s become so much more than that.

What started as a hobby has evolved into a career and still remains a passion.

Assistant Photographer, Co-Owner


My love story with photography runs parallel to my love story with Yevhen. Just two weeks after we met, he asked me to join him on a wedding shoot. I had never even touched a camera before, but I was head over heels and unwilling to turn down the chance for the next “date”, so I said yes!

That first wedding together was absolutely magical! I was taken by the limitless beauty and celebration that accompanied this lifelong commitment to love, as well as all the traditions that made this Ukrainian-Romanian wedding day unforgettable over a decade later.

I’m now a wife, a mom, and a degree-holding opera singer. And my love for wedding photography has only grown stronger through the years. Loving on our wild and curious little son has made me more detail-oriented than ever amidst the bustle of the wedding day. Serenading restaurant patrons and theater-goers on the weeknights has encouraged me to focus loads of attention on the beautiful atmosphere we build throughout the performance. Then, as I step out of the house on Saturday morning to assist Yevhen, I aim to capture that special wedding day energy from behind the camera, while ensuring that everyone in front of the camera is feeling cozy and having the time of their life!

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the frequently asked questions regarding Human Artist Photography style, business details, coverage, travel, and other topics related to Cleveland wedding photography coverage, and wedding photography coverage beyond Northeast Ohio. Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions regarding our wedding photography services.

What is your pricing?2023-03-02T16:50:15+00:00

Photo Collections start at $2895 // Photo + Video Collections start at $4395

While planning your wedding day, you will make many decisions, but the one that will have a lasting impact is photography.

What type of photography do you do?2023-03-02T16:51:34+00:00

At Human Artist Photography we cover weddings in journalistic style. However, we do not think the wedding photography should be circumscribed by a certain genre. While Yevhen, our main photographer, is unobtrusive throughout the coverage of your wedding day, we believe there might also be a time for some casually posed portrait images of the wedding couple together.

We also specialize in Event Photography, Headshot Photography, Product and Commercial Photography, Hight School Senior Photos and more.

Do you offer discounts for off season or non Saturday events?2023-02-26T03:37:48+00:00

Occasionally discounts are available for off season and non-saturday events. It depends on the availability. If you have concerns about your budget, please contact us and let us know.

If we run overtime, will you stay?2023-02-26T03:37:32+00:00

We provide a full day coverage and stay for all important moments of your day. No need to worry about running overtime!

If we decide to commission Human Artist Photography for our wedding, when should we book?2023-02-26T03:37:14+00:00

As soon as possible. Since we cannot hold the date and operate on first come/first serve basis, dates are booked when they are booked. Most of our commissions contract us within a year of the wedding date. Some weddings are booked as close as a month prior, and some a full calendar year or even more in advance.

What your payment schedule is like?2023-02-26T03:36:55+00:00

To reserve your wedding date we accept $1000 retainer’s fee which goes towards your full amount. The full amount is due one month before your wedding day in check or cash.

Can you hold the date for me?2023-02-26T03:36:34+00:00

I am sorry, but we cannot hold the date or pencil you in. To be fair to everyone we cannot hold the date without a retainer and a signed contract. We accept bookings on a first come/first serve basis.

What type of equipment do you use?2023-02-26T03:36:19+00:00

We use top of the line Nikon equipment and backups. We also use a variety of lighting systems and reflectors throughout the day.

Do you do engagement sessions?2023-02-26T03:41:24+00:00

We strongly encourage the engagement photo sessions. In fact, we include them in most of our packages. At Human Artist Photography we try to make our engagement sessions as fun as we can. This is also the time when we learn how to work with each other: you see how the photographer gives directions, learn about tips and tricks on what makes a better photo. Think of it as a rehearsal before your wedding day portraits. In the end, you get beautiful casual images of you and your fiance. Those you can use for “save the date” cards, wedding invitations, guest signature book, wedding web site, or simply print and hang the artwork above the fireplace in your home.

Do you offer wedding books?2023-02-26T03:41:10+00:00

Absolutely! We consider our wedding books to be a vital part of our service, as we are committed to providing our clients with the highest standard of quality. Our team takes great care in designing and processing the albums to ensure that your cherished memories are preserved for generations to come.

Our wedding books are not your typical albums – they are modern and sleek, presented in the form of a stunning coffee table book that you would be proud to display in your home. Each page is expertly designed with your images printed directly onto the pages, resulting in a truly timeless keepsake that you will treasure for a lifetime.

We take great pride in our approach to wedding books, and we are confident that you will be thrilled with the end result. Don’t wait – contact us today to learn more about how we can help you capture and preserve your most precious memories in a stunning, one-of-a-kind wedding book!

Do we get to keep the raw files?2023-02-26T03:40:58+00:00

At our studio, we understand that receiving high-quality images is just as important as capturing them. That’s why we take the time to carefully select, color correct, and edit each photo to perfection before delivering the final product to our clients.

It’s important to keep in mind that taking the photo is just half the work. Our editing process is what truly brings the images to life, creating a finished product that you’ll be proud to display for years to come. That’s why we only provide our clients with the highest resolution, edited files.

While we don’t provide raw files, you can trust that the finished images will be of the highest quality possible. So why wait? Let us help you capture and preserve your most treasured moments today!

Please note that all wedding raw files can be purchased for $900 and delivered on external hard drive.

Do you come with assistant photographer?2023-02-26T03:34:51+00:00

Some of our wedding collections include an assistant photographer, but if the one you selected does not have this option, you can add the assistant from our A La Carte menu.

An assistant photographer can help with various tasks such as capturing different angles and providing off-camera lighting, which is essential for producing stunning images. The presence of an assistant is critical in achieving great results since additional equipment is required.

Do you take posed family images?2023-02-26T03:40:45+00:00

Yes, we do take formal family portraits. After all, for many this is one of the rare opportunities at which the whole or most of the extended family gathers together. We encourage the couple to think of the groupings for the posed family images a few weeks before the wedding.

Please remember that the signature of our coverage is photo-journalistic, and a very long list of groupings might prevent from covering the event in a documentary fashion. We suggest that the list of groupings does not go beyond twelve (if possible).

Do we have to feed you at the reception?2023-03-02T16:52:49+00:00

That would be great! It’s not just about satisfying our hunger – feeding us ensures that we can continue to work tirelessly for the entire ten plus hours, with a cheerful attitude and without the risk of fainting due to hunger.

By eating at the same time as you and your guests, we can ensure that we are always ready to capture those special moments that unfold throughout the reception. So, please consider including us in your meal plans – we promise it will be worth it!

What our Customers Say

What our Customers Say

Yevhen and Julie were amazing and truly captured our special day! Their work is truly magical, and exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much!

Genevieve W

The best decision we made for our September 2022 wedding was working with Yevhen / Human Artist. From the moment we met him during our engagement shoot, we were impressed with his creative approach to authentically capturing the moment. He has a relaxed and welcoming presence that translates perfectly into naturally stunning photos. On our wedding day, we were impressed with his professionalism and artistic eye for capturing the day so beautifully. We are beyond excited to have his captivating photos for years to come allowing us to relive one of the best days of our lives! We cannot recommend him and his amazing team enough for capturing your event perfectly.

Hannah Z.

Yevhen was an absolute pleasure to work with through our engagement and wedding photography process. Our engagement shoot was so much fun and very relaxed, with Yevhen being extremely helpful with posing and getting those perfect photos (especially for two people who aren’t used to posing for photos). On our wedding day, Yevhen captured the most beautiful photos of us, our family, our venue, and the outdoor spaces we chose for photo sessions. He was spontaneous but strategic, the perfect combination for beautiful and romantic photos. We’re struggling to pick a few to frame because they’re all so beautiful!!

Deanna S

Yevhen captured all of the special moments on our wedding day! We are so happy that we get to cherish and relive our day through all the beautiful pictures. My husband and I both work in the beauty/service industry, and we are very detailed-oriented people. When we saw his work we knew we found OUR photographer. He is that good! if you are looking for a classic, yet vibrant, and airy style photos — Human Artist photography is the one! Aside from Yevhen’s talent, and the beautiful work he puts out, his work-ethic and professionalism are some of the characteristics that stood out the most to us — from the moment we met him, and the months and days prior to the wedding day, to delivering the photos to us in a timely manner — he was organized, prompt, and an awesome photographer to work with!

Kay R.

Absolutely incredible photographers. Yevhen and Julie were a pleasure to work with. They were professional, sweet, and incredibly accommodating. Our pastor said they were the most respectful photographers he had ever worked with at a wedding. My husband’s grandmother couldn’t make it to the ceremony, and they drove out to her retirement home after the ceremony so that we could get family portraits with her, which are the last portraits we have of her before she passed and will be treasured forever. The photos themselves turned out absolutely stunning, and the turnaround time was pretty quick! I love the dramatic lighting, and they told us exactly what to do in each shot to make sure they turned out amazing. I could not recommend them more highly.
