RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Manhattan WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Marina & Arseniy

Yuliya you are not only a visionary but one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Out of all the vendors we worked with you were the most reliable and responsive. I completely trusted your work as soon as I saw your portfolio, and you didn't disappoint. We still have people complimenting us on our engagement and wedding photos and I always tell them it was thanks to Yuliya. You are daring and have a great eye for color, beauty and amazing action shots. You have a great photojournalist style, but you are also able to take more traditional photos if the wedding party asks for them. You and your partner Michelle were great to work with during our special day. Marina & Senya

Hi Ed, Choosing you as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The level of dedication and precision you exhibits when taking pictures is unparalleled. During our engagement shoot, you were upbeat and excited the whole day, even when we became tired (it's a long day!). You knew the best places to take pictures and exactly how to catch the light to make each shot perfect. As we were walking through Central Park, you would stop us randomly because you were ALWAYS looking for a great picture. You brings a lot of joy to your work, which is inspiring. Leading up to the wedding, You were incredibly professional and always made yourself available, whether for a venue walk-through or just a call to figure out details. We had two days of wedding events and you was so excited to be part of both - you was literally everywhere taking pictures and documenting our wedding weekend, but without us even noticing you being there. You were also full of great ideas for where to stand to get the best view of our venues. You also gives a lot - you doesn't care how long the day takes, you are there the entire time. Our wedding day was incredibly long, but you was happy and energetic all day long - you made our families smile and worked to get the best out of each of our family members. And when we received the pictures, we were blown away. They are all so incredibly beautiful. You really captured the best moments of our day without us looking posed. You took so many great shots, it's hard to choose which ones we want to include in our album. We are so grateful for your amazing services and will highly recommend you for any event. Your energy and sheer passion for your work was evident throughout our wedding. Thank you, Edward!!
