Алберто Стайков, Маями 2007 - Фотограф: Хосе
I am Alberto Staykov, multimedia artist, fine art, portrait and wedding photographer. I am the owner and main photographer of Graphya art & photography and have been photographing portraits, weddings & events in different countries around the world since 1997. I decide to create Graphya Inc. in Jacksonville, Florida in 2003. I also start to assist to Rick Ferro, wedding and portrait photographer who create the photography wedding department at Disney World in Orlando and thanks to him I fall in love of photographing wedding and thanks to his wife Debora I also learn Photoshop, since I was a film photographer before that. In 2007 I return to Sofia, capital of Bulgaria and I reopen Graphya LTD.
I have been married for 8 years, so I know what marriage is all about. I remember my own wedding as if it was yesterday. I learn mostly by practice to take photographs that turn heads, evoke emotion, and tell a love story. I love natural light, creative details, sweet moments and genuine laughter. Capturing amazing images and serving my clients is my passion. I believe that because I am really in love with my wife, I am able to capture the love of my couples in a real way. I LOVE portrait & weddings, that’s obvious… but here are a few more things I love to do! I LOVE visual arts, film music, my wife and 2 children, traveling around the country and the world!
My passion is to show every subject in the best light possible. I shape My portraits to be beautiful and revealing while the documentary part of my work is hands off allowing the situations to shape the images thus creating truthful images full of real moments. I want my clients to be at ease because the best pictures happen when people feel free to be themselves! With every client uniquely different from the next I strive to know each client personally to create a photograph that reveals who they really are. With my unobtrusive approach to photographing I will create and capture those little moments that sometimes get overlooked. I have had the honor of photographing weddings in many religions, races and nationalities.
I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to different countries in Europe, south and north America to photograph. I specialize in Portrait photography - babies, children, families, pets and high school seniors but also love photographing weddings photography and special events. Once you have the opportunity to visit me, you will immediately see the passion and love for what i do.

Alberto’s Bio: I have been photographing professionally for 21 years; My first photography job was photographing a model agency. I was 22 when I photographed my first wedding. I graduate my BA in photography in 1999 and my MA in 2013, but I still feel that there is so much more to learn in photography and every day I am excited to try something new. I always try to relax my customers in front of the camera. Anyone can pick up a camera and say they are a professional but I feel a true professional is someone who connects well with their subjects and is able to capture their true essence and personality. I have one goal in every photography job, and that is to WOW my clients with an image that they have never seen before. From weddings to children and families, I love photographing and I promise to spare no expense or stop at nothing to create absolutely beautiful images for my clients.
My name is Alberto… I am a graduated professional photographer and I love my job!
I am photographer, I am creative, and I have an eye for detail and what looks good… not everyone does. Great photography happens in an instant of a moment and takes many years to master. It’s about timing and anticipating what is going to happen next. Wedding photography should evoke emotion and tell a great story. I believe that not everyone can do this; it’s a talent and a passion we’re born with.
You can easily Google or search on the Internet for information on finding a portrait or wedding photographer, however, I believe you get one chance to get it right. For me it’s all about relationships, with the bride, groom and their friends and families. Many people today buy a fancy camera and lens. Does that make them a photographic Artist? Today it is more confusing than ever to find the right photographer because the market is inundated with non-professionals and professional want-to-be’s constantly misleading the public. Couples today have to be vigilant and take the time to choose a true professional that can capture their wedding story. Remember there is no re-shoot or retake when it comes to your wedding day. Take your time and do it right!
Your first question should not be “How much do you charge?” Instead learn more about the photographers shooting style and make sure you LOVE it! Of course I understand that some couples are working with a budget and do not want to over spend. Once you learn a little about the photography you might want to spend a little more on your photography budget rather than opting for that extra honeymoon day. Find out what is important to you!
