MEET IRINA ODOARDI
Hey there, my name is Irina. I was born and raised in Moscow, however, my constant wanderlust and travels led me to settle in the beautiful Italy. Well, “settle” is not quite a suitable word for me and my husband, as at least four months per year we spend out of Italy, mostly on the ocean coast of Portugal.
Although I had never dreamt or planned to live in Italy, now, having this wonderful chance in my life, I can’t help adoring it. It is indeed “bellissima” as Italians will tell you, diverse with every region being like a separate country, inspiring, delicious, friendly and extremely photogenic.
Moving to Italy has given a great boost in my photographer career. I am lucky to do a lot of photoshoots in awe-inspiring Rome, with history and art masterpieces that surround you there, making every photo look like a shot from a movie.
Yet, my real passion are outdoors adventurous shoots, on the beach or in the mountains, with wild landscapes giving you this endless freedom, involving exploring and discovering places barely visited before by other people.
I am always happy to meet new clients who share my passion for traveling, capturing their sincere emotions and happiness of being together in those magnificent places. I prefer not to pose my couples, giving them maximum space to make them feel as comfortable as possible, to capture those intimate emotions and expressions that couples would only share when they are all alone. I love when the photoshoot flows naturally with a lot of laughter and chats, making my couples feel that they are on a walk, and not on a photoshoot, as for me them having great time during the photoshoot is as important as delivering good photos.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
“The moment I saw Nick and Danée’s work, I knew they had to be our wedding photographers. One might say we hit the photographer jackpot—insanely talented and crazy cool! From the first communication to the first meeting, they felt more like friends than just another vendor.These two bring a sense of ease and comfort to all the scary unknowns of getting in front of a camera (we are NOT camera people, let me tell you). And while they take a laid back/friendly approach, they still maintain pure professionalism through it all. Despite the rain, snow, sleet, whipping winds and 28 degree temperatures on our big day, we wanted to do some outdoor photos. Nick and Danée were all-in and didn’t hesitate or complain for a single moment (thanks for being troopers!). Those photos ended up being everything. Literally. We truly had a blast with them and we know our bridal party felt the exact same way. I can’t imagine having used anyone else to capture all the special moments on the most important day of our lives. To say we love our photos is a complete understatement. They are far more beautiful than we ever imagined. We would recommend Nick and Danée over and over again. You will not be disappointed with how many (several hundred) gorgeous photos they will capture. Their positive energy and passion for what they do shines through in each and every shot. Thank you both and best of luck on all your amazing adventures ahead!”

“After searching high and low for our wedding photographers, we decided Nick & Danee were the perfect team to photograph our wedding – and we could not have made a better choice. From the moment we met at our engagement shoot, we were comfortable around them which made it easy to take natural and fun photographs. Having Nick and Danee be a part of our entire wedding day from start to finish was also a highlight – they were there from the (early) morning until we said goodnight and did not miss capturing a single detail! We are so happy with how our photographs turned out and cannot thank them enough!”

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Nick and Danée. Nick photographed my best friend’s wedding and I was sure, after seeing the pictures, that he would be the perfect choice for our wedding. He and Danée did not disappoint! They were extremely responsive to emails (which is appreciated when planning a wedding from across the country) and genuinely excited to capture one of the most important days of our lives. When the day finally arrived, Nick and Danée were on time, acted professionally, but also put the entire wedding party at ease with their delightful and fun personalities. They did whatever it took to get the best shot (standing in the middle of a busy street, climbing on railings, etc) and the quality truly showed in the final product. In just a few short weeks, we had several hundred INCREDIBLE images of our wedding day. Going beyond the traditional portrait style photos, Nick and Danée managed to capture some really beautiful and moving images throughout the day. Their artistic eye and ability to get the perfect shot resulted in the most gorgeous photos I could have imagined. Everyone who has seen the pictures have complimented the photographers – and for good reason! I cannot recommend this amazing photography pair enough. If you are looking for people who love their job so much that it shines through every single photo, choose Nick and Danée. You will not be disappointed!”
