Marrying a Model
One of my favorite Russian bride agencies is Elena's Models - Russian women of model quality.
This is another example of a service which offers some of the highest quality you will find when looking for Russian brides online. I have personally met several ladies through Elena's Models, and I can tell you this is for real.

This site was created by a Russian woman, Elena Petrova (pictured at right), as a result of her own experiences as a Russian bride.
She describes her discouragement in not finding someone by age 29, which in Russia is looked upon as being strange.
With foreign marriages being one of the hottest topics in Russia, she decided to look for a foreign guy.
A year later, she had become a Russian bride herself, married to a great guy from South Africa. She explains that although 80% of her letters were from the US, she was looking for a partner, not a country.
has a good search engine that allows you to search profiles according to the date of publication (and a couple of dozen other parameters such as age, height, weight, hair and eye color, education, knowledge of foreign languages, etc.).
You can also enter your own age and see only profiles of potential Russian brides online that would be interested in you. The price per address drops if you order more, so if you order, for example, 50 addresses, one address costs less than $2.
When I was in Kiev, I was using several Russian bride agencies, but I received a letter through Elena's Models one day from a lady whose profile said she lived in a different city. She had just joined and was in the Weekly Ladies Catalog, and I could not respond to her. Unless, of course, I coughed up the nominal additional fee for the Weekly Catalog ;) (The Weekly Catalog is no longer in effect, which is allows us to contact new ladies immediately.)
I did, and it turned out she was in Kiev at the same time I was! We went on several dates and spent a good deal of time together while I was there, and it it one of the more memorable experiences of my trip!
Another thing I like about Elena's is that they are very active against Russian bride scams.
Elena's Models has some of the most reasonable fees of any of the Russian bride agencies. For a small fee you receive access to profiles of more than 800 women, one of whom could become your Russian bride.
All with photos, postal/email addresses and phone numbers - and best of all, the data has been submitted recently, so all women are still available and actively searching a partner. (You can find the link to this service from their "Services" page.)
Elena's Models guarantees high response rate when using the Weekly Catalog service; they also have verifiable testimonials.
This seems to be one of the best offers around from any of the Russian bride agencies (after all, one address would cost you only $0.12).
So, a combination of several things keeps me going back to this Russian bride agency -- the fact that it is owned by a Russian woman, Elena Petrova, as well as their proactive approach against Russian bride scams, and also, having experienced their services first hand.
