Hi, I'm Anastasia Abramova-Guendel.
I'm a Lifestyle, Family and Wedding Photographer in Paris, France. Many years ago I've done a crazy thing and quit my career as a Post-doc researcher in medicine to pursue this journey of preserving memories of people in love. Because THIS was my true dream and passion!
Living in every moment, having experiences to keep for a lifetime, creating family traditions and preserving legacies is what photography means to me. My every happy childhood memory was lovingly preserved by my grandfather. Now I'm a mom of 3, and so in love of being the keeper and creator of childhood memories for my little Dante, Luca and Valentina. Luckily, my husband and business partner Federico shares these family values and never says no to my new travel or fun things to do ideas.
Maybe you are visiting Paris alone, or you are a couple on your first trip here, you are Parisian, a family with little or not-so-little kids - your story is unique and it deserves to be captured in a way that's true to who you are. Would you rather show up on location, have some static portraits smiling at the camera with a photographer whose name you won't recall tomorrow or would you rather have a fun time roaming around the city together, doing something you naturally enjoy, making memories and have a new friend capture this time for you? If your answer is the second one, then Hello! you've just met your new bestie in Paris :)
Some of my biggest friendships have began from photoshoots. First a portrait session, then love story, then they get married, get pregnant, grow their family - and their photographer is a friend who is there for each milestone. This is why I'm stubbornly refusing to pick a niche and specialize on one thing - my niche is reserving the journey of you and your family.
I believe that:
"...YOUR STORY IS UNIQUE AND IT DESERVES TO BE CAPTURED IN A WAY THAT'S TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE!"
"Thank you" notes from the lovely humans I've had the privilege to create with
Our family photos taken by Ana are so beautiful, natural and elegant! Ana was amazing and made us feel at easy throughout the whole process. We absolutely loved it! Enjoyed grabbing a coffee together and talking everything babies and parenthood. Looking forward to our next occasion photoshoot with her, we’re definitely coming back!
Superb photos. Captures the whole events beautifully. Very elegant and charming. Katya and Aditya look like a model couple. Some of the comments were they looked like a Hollywood couple!

Thank you very much, Nastya, for such lively and real photographs! It’s impossible to describe in words the emotions you get from working with Nastya and then seeing the result!! Now only to you!!! Thank you for the emotions!!! I will recommend you to everyone!
These are perfect! I love the variety of shots. I’m so glad they turned out so great despite the rain trying to sabotage us. Thanks again so much. I’ll be sure to mention you on our Mama docs travel group!
