Lina's innate European stylishness, easy-going personality and love of a good party make her a true pleasure to work with.

Lina Shteyn may well be the only photographer we know who has published images in the New Yorker while working on a PhD dissertation in cellular biology. Although originally trained as a scientist, Lina’s life-long love of photography evolved into a new career eight years ago when she became a photographer at Ira Lippke Studios. Since then, she has developed a ground-up knowledge of the studio’s ethos and aesthetic as well as her own inimitable approach to photography that intermixes technical expertise with creative instinct. Lina’s innate European stylishness, easy-going personality and love of a good party make her a true pleasure to work with. When she’s not shooting weddings, Lina loves running in Central Park, training for her next marathon, experiencing the cultural delights of New York, learning new languages, and spending as much time as she can in her favorite European city, Amsterdam.

... (and excuse my language) but HOLY SH*T! These pictures are truly a work of art. You keep bringing me to tears. Every picture encapsulates the day perfectly. 

I would choose you guys over and over and over again. Having you by my side the entire day was such a comfort. You and the team are truly so amazing, so talented, and such a pleasure to work with through this whole process.

We look forward to seeing the rest of the photos, but in the meantime we will be going through this slideshow on repeat.

I have only two words to explain our reaction right now...
