Hi! I'm Chastidyi, the photographer, and Star Noir Studio is my passion and obsession.
I am 31 years old, married to the most wonderful man in the world, and I have six furry children: 3 cats and 3 dogs. For as long as I can remember, I have been constantly involved in some sort of creative endeavor. I've always felt the need to do something with my hands so I have experimented with a lot of different media like pen and ink, oil paints, acrylic paints, jewelry making, screen printing, and photography to name a few. In fact, I was so drawn to the creative process that I went to college to learn more and walked out of there (mind awash with ideas and much deeper in debt) with a Bachelors Degree in Art. That quickly transitioned to photography, and I found that I LOVE photographing people... the interaction, going different places, and bringing something out in the person they didn't expect to show. Most especially, I enjoy telling the story of someone's wedding day-each one is unique.
I have two main associate photographers who assist me on wedding days (although I am at each and every wedding), and we will tell your story with our cameras using a contemporary, lifestyle-photojournalistic approach.
Why choose us? Style, experience, reliability and value. Oh, and did we mention that every session comes with a disc of all of the retouched images? Maybe you need a few more reasons...
We are Knoxville wedding photographers who provide a fun experience and lasting memories for lively, quirky people.
We dance in the rain. We believe that LOVE is the most powerful force in the universe. We think that home grown and hand-made are more valuable than mass-produced. We find happiness in the small things like being barefoot in the cool grass on a hot summer day. We craft memories for people who enjoy being different, and we give them the warm and fuzzies by providing them with future family heirlooms. We know that our quirkiness will mean more fun for you, and we always return phone calls, texts, and emails within 48 hours. We want our clients to feel beautiful and special.

Chastidyi is one of the sweetest and caring people I know. It shows through her work and how much a great shot means to her. I have worked with her numerous times and know any bride would enjoy spending her wedding day with Chastidyi as the photographer.
