Alik+Olya :: Engaged :: Pevek, Chukotka

I would never imagine that one day I will photograph engagement session literally on the end of the earth. Yet, a week ago I came back from Pevek – northest city in Russia where I photographed engagement of my two good friend – Alik and Olya. 
I met Alik in Fresno, CA where we went to the same school, and Olya is a good friend of mine back from Moldova. Both of them decided to move to North for a long-term mission serving people of Chukotka.
Olya and Alik decided to make their engagement very special, so they dressed in national Chukotka clothes.

Here are some of my favorites:
