Hi, nice to meet you :) I am not much of a talker, but I am a great listener and a constant abuser of smilies as you will find out if we ever correspond. Photography is my passion, but even bigger passion is my awesome family, Evgenia, my constant partner in crime and our uber-amazing daughters, Mika and Neta. I live and breathe NYC and truly believe there's no other place which can compare to the best city ever. Also, I am a vegetarian and can probably kill for a pound of a great cheese and a hand-crafted NYC style cocktail. If you ever need a place to go for one, ask me, I can recommend some of the best places in the city! Enough about me, let's get back to what YOU're looking for!
My name is Evgenia and I am the beauty behind our brand :) Photography was always something that I loved (even when I didnt know Canon from JPEG) and I guess thats why it felt right when it became me. It was like creating a painting you have an idea of how you would like your image to look but you had no idea how to do it. With time came practice and perfection. I can create something unique and that alone makes me so happy!!! The love of my life, my husband, my man, my other person who I love waking up next to and fall asleep with; who I run to with my craziest of ideas, who is the father of my beautiful girls and the biggest supporter of my wildest dreams. Our true passion (other than our photography) is having quality time with each other, our girls and our circle of friends. I am a sucker for beautiful shoes and Sex and the City is still my favorite series.
My other professional passion is my boudoir photography brand! Being a New Yorker, I absolutely love black and white images and try to incorporate them into my portfolio as often as possible. Just like New York – your images will be trendy, unique, sexy, and one-of-a-kind. The boudoir session is an amazing experience and something that should be done at least once in a lifetime!
Where can two photographers meet and fall in love? You guessed right- a professional photo shoot! We were introduced, we spoke, we connected, we fell in love that very day. We didn’t see each other again until Valentine's Day when we whirlpooled into a love story like we had never experienced before. We lived together, laughed together, skied together and went on a hot air balloon ride together. We have built this amazing life and absolutely love what we do.
Yes, yes we will. We won't miss any of your special moments for the world. We pride ourselves on telling the complete & total story on your wedding day, start to finish.
As you probably could see we're photographers and prefer to keep it this way because you know, you should only do what you do best. But we would LOVE to recommend you the finest videographers in New York, just ask us, or check out our Cinematographers recommendations under Resources
We travel a lot and meet our couples in different spots in the city or via Skype/Google Hangouts and sometimes Facetime for those of you Apple fans out there :)
We do not charge for travel withing 50 miles radius of Manhattan, over that the charge is $1 per mile when driving.
Of course, we love traveling and shot weddings all around from Hawaii to South Korea. For destination weddings we charge a price of our full day package and of course our flights, hotel stay and car rentals have to be covered.
Absolutely, we love bar and bat mitzvahs, big fun birthdays and anything else you want us for. We will deliver the same luxury style to any event as we do for weddings.
Of course! We carry an insurance which is acceptable by all New York and New Jersey venues as well as any major venue in US.
We believe that images taken at your wedding are YOURS, hence, we will deliver you all the images we shoot, free of charge.
Timeline is important and we can definitely help you with that. We usually like to spend 90-120 minutes to do the “getting ready” pictures, capturing your beautiful details, taking some awesome candid shots of the couple getting ready and the family and friends helping them in the process. We will also need to set some time aside for the first look (if you want to do that) and family pictures. We will then go with you to the ceremony spot or do the first look or, actually, do whatever you decide to do on your wedding day! If it’s a 20 people wedding or 250 people bash – we are right beside you capturing your day. Most of our work is candid so you will probably not even notice 70-80% of the time.. But we will help you with your formal family pictures and capture the venue and have some awesome one on one with both of you to get some amazing formal pictures of the wedding couple. We can stay till the very last guest decides to leave or we can quietly depart after the cake.. It’s your day and we are there to help you make it the best day of your life
Typically, from a 10 hour wedding you will receive anywhere from 1000-2000 images. Yep, you will receive all of them – full size original images that you paid us for and feel free to do whatever you decide with them. You will also receive a batch of edited images (200-300) – those are our favorites from your wedding and we edit them to our liking. On top of that, depending on your contract, you will have an option to edit a few more (200-500) images that you loved. They can be color or black and white, your choice.
Typically you will start seeing your images 6-10 weeks after the wedding day. Maybe sooner. Actually, most of the time sooner. We post favorites on our Facebook page and you can tag yourself and your friends if you choose to do so. By the end of that process, you will receive a drive with all the images and the selection of favorites. You will also receive a link to a password-protected online gallery that you can share with your friends and family if you decide to do so.
We don’t look at our couples as clients. You are (if you go with us) our friend! We are not your typical vendor, we live the wedding day with you and keep in touch prior and many years after the wedding is over. But we do ask you to kindly review our style prior to deciding on us. We are not your typical wedding photographers. We have a unique style (or we so believe) and it’s very dramatic, colorful and different. We will always capture your day exactly how it went and will photograph your smile, your details and your first kiss. We will do it in a unique kind of way so that no one else will have pictures like that. Our aim is to create images that inspire and keep us moving up. We have been pretty lucky to be found by most amazing people who give us privilege to capture their love. So we never take it lightly or treat it as “another project".
What we are trying to say is that if you looking for one of a kind images and not afraid to have an awesome experience (and some cool shots after that), we are YOUR KINDA guys!
If you feel like our images have too much drama or seem too New York for you, we are probably not your photographers. We have a certain style and are sought for it – we wouldn’t want to do something not true to our style and preferences.
We would love to know what is it you are looking for but we will not replicate someone else’s work. Just like we wouldn’t want anyone to replicate ours. It will be counterproductive and only take us away from creating amazing and UNIQUE images of your wedding. So… No. But hopefully you wouldn’t ask for that, you checked our work, right?
Sorry but that’s very much like asking Vera Wang to give you her design details/specifics of your wedding dress to be recreated somewhere else. This is our work and our talent so that part is not for sale.
We use top-class Canon professional line for both cameras and lenses. We also have all of our equipment backed up, so there's no chance we will not be able to shoot your wedding in case of malfunction.
