I believe in the power of those tiny moments that happen in between the big things. I spend my days capturing the images that fill in the gaps and make you stop, smile, and ask time to please slow down.

Your story, your love, is beautiful and it should be captured in images you can treasure for years to come.

Exquisite, Joy-filled, Romantic

I’m Sonya, the Creative Director behind Tales Of Romance Atelier.

I love creating magic with joy-filled couples and I’m inspired by old world romance, luxurious heirloom details and most importantly, creating legacies.

The legacy of your love story deserves to be artfully captured with exquisite detail and timeless beauty.

If you're looking for a photographer who cares about your experience just as much as your photos, then I'd love to hear from you.

Sonya is amazing and if you don't book her for your wedding then you are stupid! 😁 But seriously she is an absolute angel who clearly loves love and that comes across in how she captures each couple. Our engagement photos and wedding photos are just to die for 😍
We love you Sonya! Thank you for giving Jordan and I the most precious memories ❤️

Shona + Jordan

Our photos reflect her ability to capture aspects of our day what other photographers could have missed and for this we will be forever grateful.

Not only a very professional and talented photographer, she is also an incredible human! She listens to her clients expectations and delivers beyond what’s required.

Absolute legend! Thanks for everything, Sonya!

We couldn't have asked for a more helpful, kind or talented photographer. We were so lucky to be able to have her photograph our wedding. Thank you Sonya!

Right from the start, she made us always feel comfortable and her style just captured us in every way. It was such a privilege to work with someone as passionate as Sonya and we would recommend her again and again!

Sonya made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot. She was full of clever photography methods to get those perfect lovey dovey shots. I usually don't like photos of myself but I fell in love with the photos. Sonya, you're amazing! 🌷
