  • Eighth Day Photography

    I'm Ksenia, a wedding and portrait photographer in Chicago, Illinois and Fort Wayne, Indiana and everywhere in between and beyond! Here you'll find photos and thoughts from my events and sessions.

    As an Orthodox Christian and the wife of an Orthodox priest, I am thrilled to specialize in photographing Orthodox weddings. But I don't stop there! I have photographed weddings of all types, including Christian, Jewish, non-denominational and everything in between!

    Eighth Day Photography is currently booking weddings and portraits for 2014 and 2015. Please visit the Pricing link for the most current pricing.

Dani & Brian | Hartford, CT

I had the great joy of flying Hartford CT to shoot the absolutely magnificent wedding of Dani and Brian at All Saint Orthodox Church in Hartford CT followed by a gorgeous reception at the Society Room in Hartford. Being from New England, it is always a joy to fly back “home” and shoot in the beautiful area. And of course, the Orthodox world being small (and even smaller when in New England), I was able to see some great friends.

Congratulations to Dani and Brian!

Sneak Peek of Dani & Brian’s Wedding | Hartford CT

Getting to Hartford, CT was one of the greatest adventures I’ve ever experienced with grounded flights out of Chicago, a long drive to St. Louis to get a different flight, further delayed flights followed by a drive from Newark to Hartford. But I would do it again in a heartbeat so I could be there for Dani and Brian’s wedding.  Congratulations to Dani and Brian! More photos will be coming soon, but I couldn’t resist posting just one for now!


Alexis & Bogdan | Livonia, MI

I truly enjoyed photographing Alexis and Bogdan’s wedding at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Church in Livonia, MI.  The great thing about photographing Orthodox weddings is that the Orthodox world in America is pretty small, so I’m likely to run into people I know.  And sure enough, the wedding sponsors were good friends of mine from Virginia.  In fact, one of the wedding sponsors was actually the priest who did my wedding!  And I ran into old friends from Wisconsin.  All in all, a great time.

Congratulations to Alexis and Bogdan as they begin their life together!

Rachel & Zach | Southbury CT Wedding

Elizabeth & Adrian’s Wedding in New Marlborough, MA

I had the great joy of photographing the most beautiful wedding of Elizabeth and Adrian at Gedney Farm in New Marlborough MA this summer.  Enjoy the photos!
