For the past decade Kaija Berzins Braus has been photographing families, corporate executives and wedding celebrations for New York's most discriminating clientele. Yet her passions for the fine arts, and the art of photography in particular, date from her early childhood in San Francisco. There, she often visited the Bay Area's numerous museums and galleries and had the opportunity to observe and study some of history's greatest works of art - from paintings and pastels to sculpture and photography.

After her family's move to New York, Kaija elected to concentrate on the study of photography at the High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, a facility where the New York metro area's most gifted students are offered intense studio training combined with a comprehensive academic program of instruction. She continued her studies in this medium at Bennington College, followed by advanced courses at the International Center of Photography ("ICP"). As a Teacher's Assistant at ICP, she obtained additional invaluable experience working in the studios of several well-known New York photographers. While a member of famed portrait and fashion photographer David Seidner's studio, Kaija continued to evolve her own highly individualistic style of photography, finding particular fulfillment in capturing the joyous moods of couples' wedding celebrations.

In 1993, she launched her own studio, Kaija Berzins Photography, specializing in fine art wedding photography. A boutique studio catering to New York's most sophisticated clientele, Kaija Berzins Braus Photography provides a distinctive level of artistry and insight. Each couple's wedding is memorialized by Kaija herself - not a staff photographer sent by a large, anonymous agency.

Referrals from clients and recommendations from editors of publications where her wedding shots have been featured have succeeded in making Kaija one of New York's most sought-after wedding photographers.
