about us


The Guendels are Ana & Fede. We've been married since 2013 and our love story is truly international. Fede comes from Costa Rica and Ana from Russia, but we met in Vienna and after getting married decided to start our family in a new country and moved to France.


Between the two of us we speak English, French, Spanish, Russian, German and Italian, which makes it easy to travel for work and fun.


Our style can best be described as a directed reportage. We try to capture each experience allowing it to unfold authentically, but we will also give direction for you to feel relaxed while creating candid moments.


Fede comes from fashion and film background, while Ana started off as portrait photographer - over the past decade we've merged our artistic visions to create editorial, elegant and timeless stills and movies for modern lovers.

We are the lucky parents of Dante, Luca and Valentina. The way we capture families has been greatly influenced by our experiences with them.


We understand the importance of preserving milestones and believe in developing a bond and friendship with your photographer and videographer, so that we can be there for you from engagement and wedding and through the next steps. This is why a lot of our couples see us on a regular basis for their pregnancy, baptisms, birthday parties and family portraits for holiday cards. 

What our clients say

Ashley & Charlie

I can't say enough good things about Anastasia's work. But I can say that choosing her as my wedding photographer was the best investment we made! We flew her from Paris to New York to capture our big day, a decision we would make again in a heartbeat. She is a total pro and the only person I trust to capture our big day. Our wedding photos are absolutely stunning and make me cry with joy every time I look at them!
I actually asked Anastasia to be my wedding photographer way before I got engaged. I worked with her in Paris and she not only made me feel comfortable, but made me look absolutely stunning in every photo. I have worked with many photographers in my life and I can tell you that Anastasia is the best. She truly cares about her clients and it shows in her work. She takes the time to make the little adjustments that really make a photo. And her tips on pose and posture are truly priceless!
We were lucky to have Anastasia with us not only on our wedding day, but for the days and events leading up to it, and by the time it was all over, she became family. Anastasia was a comforting presence to me and my husband, and so kind and generous to our friends and families. Plus, she is warm, patient, kind, hilarious and most importantly, an incredibly talented photographer who will make your wedding dreams come true! You can count on her to go beyond your expectations. And of course, treat yourself to the wedding photos you've always dreamed of!

Chicago, IL

Anastasia and Federico flew to Chicago to photograph our wedding! We are so lucky to have them with us on our special day. They did an incredible job capturing every moment and feeling of the day. They have incredible artistic ability and a great eye and made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day. They did a beautiful job retouching and editing the photos and got them back to us so quickly. I love that the photos look so natural and really capture who we are as a couple. We constantly look at photos and are instantly taken back to that day. There are many talented photographers out there, but none with the attention to detail and care like Anastasia and Federico did! They became our friends for life!
