10 Years of experience

When I was 13, I found my passion for photography with my first manual film camera, back when everything was very different. Throughout the years, I have grown with the changes in the industry and even studied photography in school to keep myself up to date with technology and its vast opportunities.


I have shot graduates, families, kids, wedding portraits and many different people and their life events. I love the natural look and emotion captured when photographing children and their families. Portraits are my passion, to capture the light in a person's eye.


Nothing has ever been so challenging yet so exhilarating as photographing a wedding. As I've shot weddings, I've learned to recognize what beautiful stories are being played out, right in front of my eyes. A wedding photographer needs to be the master of the camera and nearly all photography disciplines. A photographer must be vigilant and able to execute each skill consecutively so as to not miss those perfect shots. Weddings will produce opportunities for portraits, close ups, macros, still life, photojournalism, action shots and so much more. Weddings are history made in real life.

Awards, honors and recognition

I should be careful when nodding to mean "yes" and shaking my head when I mean "no" in Bulgaria, as this is one of the places where the meanings of these gestures are the opposite.

A fun fact about me

I have won few photography contests in my country Bulgaria, one of the latest and most prestige was from Photography Society of America with on of my best portraits in category Body and Art

    Stoyan has been my photographer for years for all my needs. His professionalism and attention to detail shows in his work. He’s very passionate about his work and it goes to show in his quality of work. Plus, he’s a very genuine individual and it’s always truly a pleasure to work with him. Anyone who has the pleasure of working with him will agree with my thoughts. He’s always there when you need him.

    The very best in photography. Some photographers know how to run a camera. Stoyan goes above and beyond. He understands what will look good, when to shoot, what to include, poses. He is not just a photographer. He is an artist and every photo he shoots exemplifies his skills, passion and expertise.
