Since the first time we met Yuliya in San Francisco, it has been non-stop joy to have her as our photographer. My wife does not like to have her photo taken, yet with the direction and her personality, Yuliya made her feel at ease at all time. Our photos didn’t looked rehearsed, but very natural and in the moment. During the wedding, I didn’t even know she was there, yet when we saw the results/photos of the wedding, we were blown away at how well the photos turned out. They say that a photo is worth a thousand words, and with all our great photos, I’d be a multi-millionaire with words. If I had to rate her customer service skills, I’d say it was like the Ritz Carlton in Hawaii along the beach during a sunset with a glass of wine, salami, caviar, brie cheese w/ sourdough bread! Just perfect!

Everyone told me that your photographer is the best investment you can make when it comes to your wedding – they are so right! After the whirlwind has passed, all you have to look forward to to re-live that special day you worked so hard to create for you and your spouse are your photos and video. I’m so glad I chose Yuliya to be our photographer. Her photos look like they’re straight out of a bridal magazine or blog. I had a certain vision of how my photos would turn out, and that vision became reality! I LOVE our photos and could not be happier with them!
My husband and I are not naturals when it comes to taking photos – we needed guidance, and Yuliya does a great job directing you ...she really took the time to listen, understand what we wanted, and made the appropriate modifications for the Big Day.
"It goes without saying Yuliya's photos are STUNNING! We were so amazed with how all of our photos turned out, we had a hard time narrowing down our favorites for our wedding website and save the date cards! Yuliya is extremely professional and she is so passionate at what she does" - Christina + Kyle

I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge how amazing Yuliya was. We were so happy (& pleasantly surprised) to see the results from our photo shoot. It easily surpassed our expectations and I would highly, highly recommend Yuliya. It was a great experience, a great set of photos and all while being treated very professionally. We would very much recommend Yuliya to anyone needing a photographer with an amazing eye!

Literally when we received the photos we were like "wow". My husband doesn't like take any pictures and he always says that he is not photogenic and not looking good at any pictures, Yuliya was giving him a good advice how to stand, how to hold, which direction to look that helped a lot to look natural in the pictures, and directed him all way during the shooting. My husband never met Yuliya before and told me right at the wedding "Wow she is amazing!"

My husband and I planned our wedding long distance, and we were anxious to find vendors who would make the process as easy as possible for us on top of producing quality work. Yuliya is professional, helpful, kind, and feels like a friend from the second you begin talking to her. Not only did she shoot our wedding beautifully, but she shot our engagement photos in our hometown of Chicago while she was there on a personal trip. She is the best and you will not be disappointed.

Working with Yuliya was the most laid back part of the whole wedding. She is very sweet and very gentle in her workflow. Being guided and directed by her was very easy and at no time seemed forced or unnatural because she knew how to get the best out of us. She was very diligent being on time and even knowing the details of the exact weather changes of each hour of the day. The before and post wedding process is smooth with her as she made herself available to answer any of our questions and handled all of our odd requests in a very timely matter.

She was sooo flexible with all of our planning and was always so easy to get a hold of despite not living in the same city as us. Her portfolio was amazing and we couldn't wait to get to work with her. We knew immediately that we wanted her as our photographer from the first day we spoke with her; she was incredibly sweet, professional and was just as enthusiastic about our wedding as we were. When my husband and I wanted to do a little excursion for our engagement photos, Yuliya was totally up for the challenge! We went on this crazy hike to a beach, took us almost 3 hours total, and Yuliya never complained. Our engagement photos and wedding day photos were exactly what we were looking for and were ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! You will honestly not regret choosing her as your wedding photographer. She makes taking photos so much fun!

Yuliya has by far surpassed my expectations for our wedding photos. She did exceptionally well with capturing moments that I was not able to be at and see. Her classic and exquisite style is everyone's dream for their special day. Her calm and sweet way of posing you was a huge blessing. She is my top recommended photographer and I would choose her all over again if I had to.
