Spotlight on La Femme Photography!
La Femme Photography owner, Angelina Toporov is an award winning published Santa Barbara professional photographer. She specializes in wedding photography, event photography, portrait photography, and lifestyle photography. Her style is photojournalistic with an editorial flair.
She loves photographing weddings and people in love. "We capture those brilliant moments of love, laughter, and excitement."
Joseph Campbell's quote "follow your bliss", rang true to Angelina at a formative age. As she followed her bliss in life whether it was to travel to Bermuda when she was 17, New York when she was 18, or Europe when she was 20, she always took her camera with her to document her amazing adventures. After living in San Francisco for a year she returned back to Santa Barbara to continue to follow her bliss by pursuing formal training in photography, film, and digital media. She graduated with a B.A. at Brooks Institute of Photography and has been photographing professionally for over 10 years.
For her this was the "road not taken", which is the title of one of her favorite poems by Robert Frost. And it has made all the difference.
On her days off you can find her photographing her adorable 10 month old son, working on one of her fun artistic projects, cooking gourmet baby purees for her baby, gourmet adult meals for her husband, family, and friends and always with a camera nearby, reading a cooking book, or taking day trips to nearby towns.
