Emin Kuliyev

Our Photographer

Emin Kuliyev is a native of Azerbaijan and I lived in Baku and Moscow before moving to New York in 2000. The main reason why I choose wedding photography as a career is self employment, I don’t have a boss.

The second reason is that all my knowledge and skills merge together in the wedding photography field. I have 23 years of experience with Photoshop, and I worked for 9 years in a store as a sales rep so I have a good communication skills. I have a good reaction speed to help me catch the right moments, and I have studied in graphic design which helps a lot with a color understanding and composition. So for me I feel it’s a perfect fit.
