Amazing experience at Kissed By Light back in May. In love with my photos and found it super difficult to only pick a few! Will definitely go back in the future. Highly recommend!

Sarah Warsi [08.08.2017]

We are very happy with our maternity photo shoot! Daria did an outstanding job! Photos look great and it will be a great memory for us! We highly recommend Kissed by Light Photography!

Olga Solnishko [09.07.2017]

Artistic photographers with an eye for beauty. Professionally run. Incredible studio. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Sandra Levy [19.05.2017]

It was a pleasure working with KBL. They make you feel comfortable and beautiful in your own skin, allowing you to completely forget about your insecurities. For someone who has never done a boudoir shoot and felt slightly nervous at first, Daria knew exactly what to say and what tips to provide to make me come out of my shell. The ladies are very professional and well organized and this made the experience that much more enjoyable. Lastly, I absolutely loved my makeup by Jennifer and didn’t want to take it off at the end of the night! I would highly recommend their services!

Martina D [04.05.2017]

Extremely satisfied with the entire experience from the beginning to the end. a very professional team of lovely ladies that made me feel very comfortable. I was not sure going into it if I really wanted to have maternity shots done, but once I have contacted KBL, I was provided with all the information in a timely matter, tips and explanation of what to expect that day. Daria is down to earth an amazing photographer to work with. she made me feel very natural and relaxed. I loved the fact that KBL also offered to have hair/makeup done at the studio. Made it extremely easy for me to get ready that morning for the photo shoot especially that I have a toddler at home and getting myself ready can be tricky. thank you to the entire team and wish you best of success in your business!!!

Yelena Nichilo [28.04.2017]

My day at KBL was without a doubt one of the best experiences of my life. Daria, Jen and the rest of the ladies eased all my fears and made me feel absoluety beautiful. My pictures turned out even more amazing than I could ever imagine.

Ferial Osman [15.03.2017]

Simply amazing is best way to describe KBL !!! I would highly recommend the KBL team. They were able to capture a difficult moment in my life while going through breast cancer. They are extremely talented and profession.

Tazzy Ipw [20.02.2017]

Working with KBL is such a wonderful, fun, and rewarding experience :) . The team communicates so well and so quickly – we set everything up super fast! The studio is absolutely stunning!!! Light pours into the room and floods the white space with a plethora of dreamy soft-box lighting. Daria is an angel to work with – she recommended a few poses and directed the shoot very well. I felt comfortable and at ease the whole time. Jennifer’s makeup was great – it will be heavier than you are used to, but that is because it shows up way less in the actual photos. I was a bit nervous about the finished product, as it can be difficult to like photos of yourself, but I was speechless when I saw the shots. Daria has a wonderful eye for angles and highlighting your best features. She captured some amazing moments :) . The editing was delicate and tasteful. No excessive airbrushing or over contrast, just enhancement of the beautiful soft lighting and your best features. I was so thrilled with the final product and can’t wait for another opportunity to work with KBL again

Mouna Ben Hadj Tahar [10.02.2017]

The entire team at Kissed by Light are thoughtful, helpful and talented. I’m so glad I was able to celebrate a milestone birthday feeling beautiful after receiving the final images. Daria was supportive and wonderful at making this a relaxed and comfortable experience. If you are considering doing this for yourself, you will not regret it.

Jennifer Valvano [18.01.2017]

Wow. What an incredible experience. These ladies are true professionals. From the booking process to the viewing session they never missed a beat. Communication was INCREDIBLE- they made sure I was well informed on what to bring, what to do, what not to do and even sent me reminders the day before each appointment.
And the images. If this is something you’ve ever had even the smallest thought of doing, do it. Don’t say to yourself, ‘I’ll wait until I shed a few pounds’ or ‘i gotta wait until my hair grows out’- book it right NOW. They will highlight your best features, pose you beautifully and make you look amazing the way you are right this minute. I was nervous at first- but now I’m very excited to gift this. I’ve already gifted it to myself- and confidence is one of the best gifts

Michelle Tim [21.12.2016]

Great experience at Kissed by Light. Thanks Daria so much for a job well done!

Lily Ye [12.08.2016]

What a truly wonderful experience it was to spend the day being styled and photographed by these beautiful ladies. So empowering to fully celebrate yourself and your body and let true artists capture your personality and turn you into a work of art. I felt comfortable right away with these ladies and am so pleased that I chose them to capture me at this stage in my life. I would highly recommend Kissed by Light Photography to any woman who wants to celebrate themselves!

Nancy M. [23.07.2016]

My experience at Kissed by Light was excellent. I wasn’t too sure how the photos would turn out, but with a makeup and hair make-over and Daria’s pose coaching and photography skills, wow, wow, WOW, I’ve never looked so good! I would definitely go back and I would recommend Kissed by Light to anyone.

Wendi K. [22.07.2016]

Daria, and her team, at Kissed by Light are incredible photographers, stylists and artists! They love what they do, so the energy and magic in the studio is inspirational! I highly recommend you experience an afternoon with them for yourself.

Sabrina Assad [08.07.2016]

My experience at the Kissed By Light studio was nothing short of fantastic. Daria did such an amazing job not only of photographing me, but of coaching me into the perfect pose and making me feel completely at ease. Jen was awesome and did a fabulous job of my makeup, and Ameri styled my outfits perfectly. Despite how much fun I had taking the photos, I was super nervous to get them back… until I saw them, and was totally blown away! Daria, you’re a magician – thank you so much. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. I will definitely return to KBL and would highly recommend this studio to anyone. I can’t wait to show my husband his first anniversary gift :)

Nicole B. [01.07.2016]

I absolutely love working with Kissed by Light!!! To me, being a photographer is more than having a camera and just clicking a button. You need to be an artist with an eye for detail, understand lighting, colour, posing and so much more. These ladies have it all – they are true artists!!! They have the most beautiful studio and know how to make you feel beautiful, sexy and confident! My images always come out AMAZING and the hardest part honestly is narrowing down the selection. If you ever have a chance to work with them, do not hesitate for a moment. They are worth every penny! I highly recommend them!

Aida Cyganek [21.06.2016]

My wife gave me boudoir pictures for our first anniversary and I was stunned by the beauty and grace exuded through the pictures. The treatment of the photographs was flawless. You brought out the beauty that I see every day and there’s even one where she looks like a model and I hardly recognize her. I loved the gift

Simon Mitchel [11.06.2016]

Wonderful experience with professionals who really care to put out Quality work. Would recommend them over and over again.

Serena Mann [08.06.2016]

I had a wonderful experience with Kissed by Light Photography. Daria was the photographer that worked with me on my shoot and she did an amazing job. Their studio is gorgeous and the girls are so friendly. I will most definitely be referring Kissed by Light Photography to all of my friends and family. The booking process was simple and they are very versatile in their experience not only doing boudoir but head shots and business photos as well. Thank you again ladies!!!

Glam Galz [15.04.2016]

The talent of this team is indescribable. Lora has an amazing eye in photography! They are extremely professional and very easy to work with. The whole team made me feel very special and I would recommend them to anyone!

Cassandra Ryan [25.09.2015]

I must be the luckiest guy out there/this album literally changed my life.

My wife, whom I just married last weekend, decided to give me an album as a surprise, the morning of our wedding. I opened it the second I woke-up, and was in shock the moment I turned the page. Trust that I when I say shock, I mean that I was left speechless at how stunning, seductive & drop-dead gorgeous my wife looked in the photos. I mean, she is such a beautiful girl anyway, but these photos just took her to the next level and I just need to applause you.

I wasn’t nervous waking up, but as soon as I saw the pictures I started feeling anxious/nervous because she just looked so incredibly beautiful and I thought to myself “your telling me I get to marry this person??” I wish I had a camera on my face the moment I opened the album because I’m pretty sure my draw dropped to the floor in seconds and my eyes grew to their maximum size without bursting out of my face.

I haven’t stopped thinking about this album since – it just makes me so happy. The pictures are so amazing. My wife looks so incredible. I just don’t know what else to say.

Daria made my wife feel super comfortable and was able to get the best out of my wife, using her expertise. It was clearly a team effort and something I just need to applause. I Highly suggest doing this sort of photo shoot for any new bride to give to her partner.

This is something I’ll actually cherish forever, and will hopefully look at everyday before I go to bed :)

Hart Lambert [20.09.2015]

These ladies truly deserve an applause-not only for the exceptional and very professional service they provide their clients, but also for their talent and artful skill for photography. Working with Daria she made it her priority to make sure I felt at ease and turned the photo session into a fun and very comfortable experience. I’ll be honest to admit that I ‘m often a deer at headlights in front of a camera; but the constant feedback and direction during the photo shoot produced an amazing product. My photos were edited the following week in a very timely manner and I was blown away by how well they were able to interpret and capture the vision I had for the final photos. Thanks a million for the wonderful experience the beautiful photos!!!

Joanna Ozimek [15.08.2015]

I loved that the pictures capture a moment and each one of them tells you a story.

Sura K. [02.08.2015]

My experience with Kissed by Light was beyond phenomenal. The ladies here make you feel comfortable and confident. I was privileged to have Daria as my photographer for the day and I cannot emphasize how thrilled I am with my end product! I would recommend Kissed by Light to anyone that is looking for a top notch photography experience, with true professionals who are skilled and warm to work with.

Rachel Starkman [12.07.2015]

I had my photos taken by the Kissed by Light team recently. I am VERY satisfied with their work. People say that the two most fundamental element of great photographs are light and composition. The Kissed by Light team excels at using light and constructing composition. They produce high quality and beautiful images. Highly recommended.

Dawn Yang [28.06.2015]

My experience at Kissed by Light was amazing. Doing a professional photo session was something I always wanted to do. After seeing the portfolio at Kissed by Light, I convinced myself to do a boudoir photo shoot. I was nervous at first, but Daria made me feel comfortable and confident. She helped put together outfits from the items I brought, and coached me through all the poses and ideas. My hair and make-up also turned out amazing. The whole team listened to what I was looking for. I love my photos, I feel sexy and gorgeous. I will definitely have to come back for more photos in the future. Thank you ladies!

Miss J. [09.02.2015]

There is no single part where the expectation less than 100%. Very Happy to see the Photographs and also thanks for Sharing

Kamrul Islam [26.07.2014]

I was so nervous going in but all the ladies here made me feel so comfortable and so confident! My husband LOVED the album. He said that he was “the best present ever.” Thanks! :)

Jessica Yang [22.08.2014]

I am SO happy about my recent experience with the Kissed by Light team. The shoot was very relaxed and although I went in with few, vague ideas they were great at helping me figure out exactly what I liked. I felt comfortable, everybody was very great and it was an awesome day! My photos turned out absolutely stunning; I am sooo pleased with everything and all the effort put in to help me feel and look so beautiful. Thank you so much!

Alicia Maltby [12.08.2014]

Thank you again for the wonderful photos! I am so happy with them! I am very impressed with your company…I love you guys even more now :) The customer service, studio, organization, the quality of the photos to the detail in the delivery of the final product is quite exceptional! I hope to do another photoshoot in the near future! I’m hooked :)

Kissed by Light Studio is by far the most professional and well run studio I have every dealt with….I had an amazing experience right from the get go. The studio is so beautiful that I could live in it…it is very nicely setup to accommodate a range of setups. They have amazing props, are very aware of lighting and how to use it for best effect, and they definitely know how to direct and position you to ensure you get the best results. I even loved the lipstick looking USB my photos came in! Such attention to detail! And the final pictures? WOW! I cannot even believe it. I will definitely be using them again and again!

Aida Cyganek [09.07.2014]

Working with the team from Kissed By Light was a really amazing experience. The photos were a gift for my husband for Christmas and he absolutely loved them. I am a professional photographer myself and much more comfortable being on the other side of the camera. This experience of being photographed, and in the nude, was way outside my comfort zone but Lora, Daria and their team made me feel so at ease. I love how the images turned out… beautiful lighting, amazing angles and really classic and classy :) While I won’t be sharing the photos with anyone but my husband, I will gladly share Kissed by Light Studio with girlfriends looking for a unique and thoughtful gift for the guy who has everything!

Leigh. [20.12.2014]

Daria at Kissed by Light Studio was amazing to work with and took absolutely stunning photos. She took my ideas and listened to how I wanted to look in the photoshoot and brought everything to life. I’m not a model and have never done anything like this before so I was nervous and unsure of what to do. Daria coached me through it every step of the way and made the experience so comfortable and fun. I can’t wait until I have a reason to use her services again. Thanks Daria and team!

Miss J. [06.11.2014]

Daria from Kissed by Light was extremely professional and so much fun to work with. She made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her. I chose this studio because I wanted someone with exceptional talent and a creative eye. I couldn’t be happier with the beautiful images!

Tracey [08.10.2014]

My husband was so surprised and loved the book – success!! :)

Miss K. [15.09.2014]

Dearest Lora and all of the ladies at Kissed by Light studio,

I decided that I wanted to have some photos taken as a way to celebrate myself. Recently, I lost over 45 pounds with clean eating and exercise and finally I feel healthy, strong, confident and sexy. I wanted to have some photos taken to capture this point in my life as a gift to both myself and my husband. I searched for photographers and as soon as I came across Kissed by Light Photo I knew I had to make contact. The images on the Kissed by Light website as well as the description “we specialize in photography for women who would like to celebrate their bodies and personalities, and capture their femininity and beauty … every stage of womanhood is wonderful while having its own dimension,” made it clear that this was the experience I was looking for.

From start to finish the entire experience was professional and exhilarating for me. Daria was a wonderful point of contact. She made the arrangements easy and was helpful and available to me for any questions or concerns. When I arrived at the studio, Lora and her assistant where friendly and warm and throughout the entire afternoon made me feel comfortable and beautiful. Lora is an incredibly talented artist. She has a kind, quiet and calming nature which made it easy for me to relax and enjoy myself. I had a lot of fun with this and I really wish I could do it all over again, and again and again!

This is something that I will never forget and am so thankful for getting to experience. I truly believe that all women would adore an experience like this, and I have no doubt that the ladies at Kissed by Light do it best! I have a newfound love and appreciation for myself, my body and my femininity. Feeling comfortable and beautiful in your own skin is truly liberating.

Thank you Lora for being a part of this liberating experience for me. I am thrilled with my entire experience with you and my husband and I were both absolutely blown away by my album. You have my most sincere thanks.

Warmest wishes until we meet again,

B. [02.05.2014]

I would like to say that I had such a wonderful experience at the studio. I was terrified about having myself in a photo session, however, everyone at the studio from the make-up artist to the assistant holding the light reflector to the photographer were all very professional and thoughtful. I made this photo album for 2 reasons. 1 to celebrate my 50th birthday and 2 to celebrate my 25th anniversary with my husband. Both occasions were equally important. My husband was and still is very happy about the book. He feels it was the best present he has ever been given. Thank you again for all that you have done for me. You made me look and feel like the most beautiful woman on earth.

I recently experienced an amazing and memorable boudoir photo shoot with Lora Vertue. The attention to detail and dedication to ensure perfection from Lora’s team was applied to every element of the shoot from the way my hair fell to the direction of my gaze. Their efforts are evident in the photos which look incredibly natural and flawless and leave everyone I have shown astonished. I cannot wait to do another shoot and would recommend Kissed By Light to anyone looking at the boudoir experience for themselves or as a gift.

I just wanted to say “Thank you!” again to the entire Kissed by Light crew. Everyone was so fantastic, and we are so happy with our photos. Thank you for capturing such meaningful moments in our lives.

A detailed account of a photo session in Kissed by Light studio by our wonderful muse, Nadine: http://isitjustmenadine.wordpress.com/2013/11/10/kissed-by-light-photoshoot/

It has been two months since my photo session with with Lora Vertue am I am still in absolute awe over the photos! I felt like a total celebrity, it was a truly empowering and liberating experience! Being in the industry made no difference – on the day of the shoot I was just a woman getting royal treatment from top to bottom. Lora is an amazing master of her craft – she captures the essence of a woman, which most of us don’t event see in ourselves! Lora is professional and personable at the same time; focused on shooting yet she manages to make you laugh and get in the mood of being a Goddess. This is not a recommendation, it’s a must do! This is the best gift I’ve given to myself ever.

Miss Eugenia

I recently had a boudoir photo shoot at Kissed by Light and I could not be happier with both the experience and the product. Lora is a truly incredible photographer who made me feel so comfortable and managed to bring out my absolute best in the pictures. She was so cheery and easy going that it was easy to feel natural in the photos and allow my inner beauty to show. Nelly was amazing as my stylist, bringing a very positive energy and truly making the shoot look like it was out of a magazine. The hair and make-up artist, Irene, did a beautiful job and Anya who shot the video was also great. I did the shoot to make an album and video as a sexy gift for my husband, which he was completely blown away by. However, aside from the final product, the experience itself was so special for me. I felt pampered and beautiful and it was a wonderful confidence boost. I highly recommend Kissed by Light to anyone looking for a boudoir shoot as a gift to a partner or just for themselves.

I had an amazing experience at Lora’s studio. A typical business woman, I hate to be photographed and had never considered myself to be anything “artsy”. I was somewhat sceptical when Lora suggested that I should do a “Portrait + Boudoir” combo. Portrait yes, but boudoir? The only reason I agreed was that Lora never pushed and, actually, was not even “selling” anything to me. She just suggested that I should not miss such an opportunity. I was still sceptical at the beginning of the photo shoot, but Lora and Alisa were so accommodating and so professional, that on my forty-fifth minute in their studio I forgot what I was there for – I just had pure fun. The studio has natural light, with zero obstacles in front of the windows. Lora has all the necessary props and the most important thing – an exceptional professionalism. As far as I understood she was learning and practicing the art of photography for a good decade, before she ventured in her own studio. She has a unique vision and an eye for some “hidden” things: for example she discovered a softer, more romantic side of me (never ever in my life I thought that I would look good in something pink or beige-pastel. These pictures turned out to be the best). Her black-and-white art works are breathtaking. I am recommending this experience to all my friends (especially to the ladies, who think “this is not for them”). You will be surprised.

Lana

It’s not my first time being photographed by my talented friend Lora. And every time I’m excited like a little girl. I love the whole experience of preparation, talking about the idea for the shoot, creating the look, shopping for new lingerie (of course!!)

It’s a great and fun experience that lets you meet your sexy side. I think every woman should spoil herself at least once with a fun beauty photography experience like this!

Thank you, my wonderful Lora! I look forward to having more sessions with you in the future! xo

Elena

I decided I wanted to give a gift to my husband that would reflect the love I feel for him and the appreciation I have for how he has helped me to become the woman I am; an artistic nude print seemed the perfect gift. But I was terrified of putting myself in front of a camera. While searching the web for a photographer, a line on the kissed by light web site, “Every stage of womanhood is wonderful while having its own dimension ” caught my attention; I figured that if a company was interested in celebrating women’s bodies throughout the life course, I could feel comfortable there.

From beginning to end, the experience with Lora and Olga was both extremely professional and comfortable; the experience for me? Life changing.

I was nervous about all aspects. Making contact, choosing things to wear, having my makeup done, not to mention doing the photoshoot itself! Olga’s assistance prior to the shoot and during was wonderful. Her friendliness and honest conversation made it easy to relax and enjoy myself.

Lora is an acceptional artist. Her quiet nature, warmth and sincerity is immediately obvious and helped me to relax. I simply trusted her and recognized immediately that I was in the hands of a professional and that it would be best to just offer myself as a blank canvas.

Lora and Olga’s combined talents and gifts – friendliness, humour, patience, professionalism, kindness and warmth – helped me to feel comfortable in my own skin, and enjoy the experience. I was glowing by the end of the shoot!!!!

I was so nervous to see the pictures!!!! I knew they would be technically good, but they were of me and I was seriously concerned that they would reflect only what I see when I look in the mirror. What was amazing for me was to see myself through someone else’s “eyes”. It was at once shocking and life affirming!! I just didn’t see myself in the way the photos captured. If I was glowing after the photo shoot, I was practically incandescent after seeing the photos!!!!!

The experience has given me a swagger to my step, a different confidence, a belief in myself that I didn’t have before. That is a real gift, and I am thankful to the depths of my soul. Thank you is such an insufficient phrase, as it doesn’t really begin to encapsulate fully how profound this experience has been for me. A life gift.

Rhonda

I recently shot with Lora and it was an unbelievable experience. I walked away feeling beautiful and comfortable, as well as impressed by her skill level and work ethic. As boudoir photographer I can see why women are so comfortable with them. Lora has a skill for capturing the truth of ones personal beauty, but at it very best. I am thrilled with the shots we chose and will look to them again for future projects boudoir and editorial alike. Thanks!

Brooke from Toronto

I had an amazing experience at my photo shoot. It was really great working with Olga and Laura, Every time I think about that day I always laugh because I remember when Olga was doing poses while I was taking my pictures. These ladies are so friendly and clever and amazing to work with. I appreciated the nice review that was said about me on my photos on your website. It made me happy and made my year. Kissed by light is an amazing company, and I would recommend it to any one who wants to bring sexy modern elements to their photos.

Csonka Terez Maria

Kissed By Light Photography has captured the most important memories of my life. Lora was there for my wedding, my pregnancy, and my baby girl. Most recently we had a photo shoot that resulted in pictures I will cherish forever. Lora is so easy to work with. She inspires you to be the best you can be in every shot.

Maria

I had a great time during my photoshoot with Lora and Irina! Lora captured every mood and emotion and made me feel incredibly comfortable. The results were amazing and I admire the photos almost everyday! Thanks Lora for making it such a great experience, I will be back for more!

Kathy

I chose Lora because there is something so special in the way she is able to capture a “momemt” in time that speaks volumes. My favorite shots are those Lora captured when we weren’t posed- she captured our love and joy. Thank you!!

Betsy

Strongly recommend! Lora is a great photographer! She is very professional and knows exactly what you need and how to bring out the best in you (even if you don’t like yourself): she is a true artist! She is also very kind and flexible. It has been a pleasure and my family and I would definitely recommend her.

Lisa

AMAZING!!! I’M IN LOVE WITH LORA’S PHOTOGRAPHY! Amazing photography experience! Can’t wait to do more photo-shots with my family. I’m recommending Lora to all my friends, and finding a great use for her gift certificate as it is a great idea for the present. Thank you Lora for all you great work!

Huge Fan- Katya A.

We had a photo shoot with Lora Vertue. We wanted to make a portrait to capture women in the family, grandma, my mother, myself and my daughter. Lora did an amazing job and met our expectations.

Great photographer with great ideas and skills. I don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera, however Lora Vertue made be feel like a model. It was very relaxing during our photo-shooting. Lora provided everything I asked for. Pictures came up great and it was remarkable experience! I recommend!

Christine

I had a pleasure of being photographed by Lora Vertue. She is highly talented and gifted! She does an amazing job, listens to your needs or offers creative solutions if you can’t decide what you want. Her team is also very helpful and professional. I would recommend her to everybody who is looking for a fantastic photographer.
