    Our wedding was the most magical night of our lives. The biggest joy we have in remembering our night is our absolutely stunning photos taken by Iryna. Iryna was pivotal in making our night a total fairytale! Not only do I now see Iryna as a trusted friend, but I am also able to appreciate the raw talent that lives within her. Iryna took the time to get to know myself and my husband thoroughly. She laughed with us, cried with us, and captured every memorable moment with elegance. We recently received our wedding album which brought us both to tears within seconds of turning the cover. We look forward to forever using Iryna for any of our photography needs. We will never see photography the same. Thank you, Iryna, for being a rockstar and making our day all that it was!

    My wife and I (and our respective families and many of our guests!) have nothing but glowing praise for Iryna.
    We decided to schedule an introductory phone call with Iryna after noticing a few simple qualities about her work:
    1) First and foremost, her wedding photography is beautiful, tasteful, and polished–yet still whimsical and fun
    2) We could tell from looking at Iryna’s past work that she uses composition, color, lighting, shadow–and even movement–to create one-of-a-kind photographs of precious memories
    3) It was clear after looking at several different wedding photographers that Iryna’s work showcases an artistic eye and artistic vision that others just don’t have
    After a brief Facetime call, we were convinced that Iryna was the right choice to shoot both of our wedding ceremonies. She’s funny, kind, easy to talk to, and was extremely willing to work with us. She’s also clearly a professional–this isn’t just a hobby for her, and our wedding wasn’t going to be “just another wedding” for her to shoot.
    On the day(s) of, Iryna was wonderful. She has an infectious personality and a great sense of humor. We were immediately comfortable working with her, and it wasn’t long before she was just like another member of our family. She is excellent at providing direction, setting up shots, and getting the perfect angle, lighting, and background. She even took individual pictures–both candid and semi-staged–of our family dogs!
    Working with Iryna was a pleasure, and I can say without a doubt that both of our wedding ceremonies were better for her inclusion. Truly, I can’t imagine how different they would have been if we had decided to book somebody else.
    Last but certainly not least: her photos! She took exceptional photos, and we’re so grateful to her for all of her hard work. The turnaround on her finished work was surprisingly fast given how beautifully everything turned out. One photo in particular was so artfully taken that it was featured on a wedding magazine’s Instagram page! (In fact, it’s currently Iryna’s cover photo!)
    Everybody’s circumstances and preferences are different, but you should absolutely hire Iryna if you want a wedding photographer who will:
    · Capture truly special moments,
    · Make you laugh while she does it,
    · Learn your family members’ names–and even your pets’ names,
    · Somehow make your wedding day happier, more special, and more memorable without ever being the center of attention,
    · Produce finished work that is leaps and bounds more captivating than what you’ll get with “cookie-cutter” wedding photographers, and
    · Edit and deliver your photos with an impressively quick turnaround.

    Iryna is an absolutely amazing photographer! She is extremely pleasant to work with, takes stunning photos, and provides high quality pictures that are beyond compare. Iryna recently did a family wedding and we chose her based on her unmatched artistic photography portfolio. Although we had extremely high expectations going in, she was as amazing as we hoped! Her photos beautifully captured the day and created amazing artistic images that we will treasure forever. To helping guests pose, to figuring out angels and lighting, Iryna does it all to ensure the wedding couple received photographs they will be delighted with! I highly highly recommend this photographer!

    Iryna was everything I never knew I truly needed in a wedding photographer. From the moment I booked with her, through the planning of my engagement shoot, to my actual engagement photos, then the planning of my wedding day and then the wedding day itself. She is absolutely stellar. Before even meeting her, I immediately felt a comfortability and friendship with her from the start. I sent her photos of engagement shoot ideas that I had liked and she proceeded to send me dresses that she felt would be a good fit for the shoot. I truly felt there was nothing she wouldn’t do to ensure I was happy and I was right. Iryna always went above and beyond for me and my husband. I can also say that I have never seen more beautiful photos than the ones she captured during both my engagement session and my wedding day. Iryna was always just a text message or an email away and her response times are unmatched! She curated a timeline for my wedding day and made sure I sent her a list of photos I wanted to have taken because it gets too crazy for a bride to remember everything! She had it all together for me. Personally, I needed someone who would give me guidance and direction to help make my photos meaningful and turn out the way I wanted. She gave us so much direction; “chin up, head left, that’s great!” Most wedding couples are not training in photography, us included- so we needed all the help we could get! The photo quality is also unmatched-I have never seen clearer photos ever! I would recommend Iryna and her team one thousand times and I am urging all of my friends to book her for their event’s before she is no longer available! I feel I gained a friend in knowing her and she deserves all the trust and admiration in the wedding photo industry. I envy no one’s photos but my own. Do not walk, run and book with her! And thank you (Batman), for everything.

    Iryna is truly a professional at what she does. Her talent is beyond words and her work speaks for itself. My husband and I were lucky enough to find her and book her for our engagement photos and our wedding. We were at a loss for words when we got back our wedding photos. Not only did she give us back our photos SO quickly, they were absolutely stunning. Iryna loves what she does, and she truly cares about all of her clients. She would call and text us to check in with us throughout the year leading up to our wedding. She is very detail oriented and made sure she knew all of the details for our wedding so everything could run smoothly. Her wedding style is unlike most photographers you see now. She doesn’t do any crazy/weird trendy editing, where your pictures look either too light and washed out or too dark. She has a timeless photographing style which makes you look like YOU on your wedding day. Our pictures truly look like they could be in a magazine (and all of our family and friends told us this!!!) I know we will still look back at our pictures 50 years from now and see how timeless and gorgeous they are. Thank you SO much Iryna for all of your hard work that you put in to capture the most stunning photos on the most important day in my life. You are amazing!!!

    Iryna was absolutely the best photographer, and we are so happy with her work! From the beginning of booking her and experiencing her work for the first time during our engagement shoot, we knew we chose the right person for our wedding. She made us feel comfortable and confident, always making us the priority and focusing on our needs and wants. Our wedding day was everything we imagined it would be. Iryna played a huge part, ensuring she and her team captured every detail. She worked hard and fast. You wouldn’t notice her but if you intentionally watched, you would often catch her running to the next spot, standing, laying, and more, just to capture the best photo. Her hard work did not go unnoticed, even from the guests at our wedding who commented later on her work. Finally, we worked with Iryna to design our wedding photo album and absolutely love it! She was patient with the editing process and helped to ensure the layout was orderly and looked right. We received our album, and it is beautiful! We would highly recommend Iryna for your photography needs; you will not be disappointed!

    Hareesh and I could not be more grateful to have found Iryna! She is a beautiful person and photographer! Her joy and energy are infectious! We are truly in awe of all of her hard work. She captured memories of our day with great creativity. She is also very flexible and lightening quick with getting back the pictures. We highly recommend Iryna!

  • Maureen and Sougata

    Iryna was a delight to work with for both our engagement pictures and wedding day. She went above and beyond for our engagement pictures by driving from Philly to DC very early in the morning. She sure had her work cut out for her as we are somewhat awkward and definitely not used to being in photoshoots. But she walked us through each pose, made us feel comfortable, and got some gorgeous pictures. Next, we had a very long wedding day with both a Catholic and Hindu wedding ceremony. She (and her awesome assistants, especially Marta) delivered beautiful pictures of all of our events. We even got a quick highlight video from her assistant, Anatolii, just a day or two after the wedding. Iryna’s energy was infectious the whole day (even when we were tired). We went over our contracted time with her and she was very professional about the overtime. You can tell she is dedicated to perfectly capturing every shot. I can’t even fathom how many images she had to curate after the hours of photography she did. We just received our gorgeous album that she created and we can’t wait to show it off to our loved ones!

  • Sarah

    Iryna and her team are just exceptional!!! They know all the right angles to make you look more beautiful than you could’ve ever imagined on your big day! They are so kind and easy to work with! I’m so happy she was recommended to me and I want to pay it forward by recommending her to anyone looking for a top tier wedding photographer. She has done all types of events including destination weddings and always does a 10/10 job. I’m so blessed to have worked with such a beautiful soul!

  • Ashley Brogan

    Iryna is AMAZING! From the first time on the phone with her to meeting her in person I felt like I have known her my entire life. She was able to connect with not only my husband and I but our entire family. She was able to have all of my visions come to life and more. I couldn’t of asked for a better photographer for our wedding, she knows exactly what she is doing and has such a passion for photography. On our wedding day I didn’t want to stress about anything and wanted to enjoy the entire day, Iryna did just that for not only me but everyone in our wedding party and family! On your wedding day you are pulled in so many directions, but Iryna gets it done so quickly and so efficiently, you are having so much fun while taking pictures with her and her team. My family LOVES her and her team and I highly recommend hiring her, her photos are breathtaking, and she captures the love in each and every photo. She was able to capture the most important day and moments in our lives and we are forever grateful for the magic she has with her photography. On Iryna’s team she has the most amazing videographer! He was able to capture the most amazing memories that we will be able to watch over and over again for the rest of our lives. I can’t thank her and her team enough!

    Words cannot describe how amazing Iryna is not only as a photographer but as a person! It started with a recommendation and seeing her page. Just looking at her samples I knew the pictures would be special. Then we met and spoke about what we wanted and she just got it. My husband and I are jokesters and not really into being seen for lack of better words. We did not feel weird even once.

    What’s even more….she had to deal with my life typically having rainfall on all of my special occasions. I don’t know how thru a rainstorm she still managed to get amazing pictures for an engagement shoot and at the wedding itself. She even worked with us having our ceremony in a thunder storm! She works magic.

    As a person, she listens to everything. I had to vent and she listened. I told her my dilemmas and she worked with us. How can I ask for anything more than someone who takes the time to listen!

    You will not understand why she’s asking you to do this or that with poses or movement but when you see the pictures it is 1000% worth it so trust her like we did! She does not disappoint and I am glad we chose her!

  • Samuel and Jessica Z

    Iryna surpassed all our expectations and delivered an exceptional experience from start to finish. With her keen eye for detail, creativity, and the ability to make us feel at ease, she beautifully documented our special day. She went the extra mile to connect with us and the bridal party the day of the wedding and it helped everyone feel more comfortable, which lead to more natural candid moments. We highly recommend Iryna to any couple seeking a talented and dedicated wedding photographer. She is the best in the business!

  • Jenny & Frank Canavan

    I wish I could give more than 5 stars – Iryna is everything and more! Iryna spends the time getting to know you as a couple so she can capture your love perfectly. She knows exactly how to pose you, make you laugh, and capture the right lighting. She will do anything – including laying on the ground or getting in bushes – to make sure she gets the shot. Not only is she extremely talented, she is also so caring and kind. She spent time learning our family and friends names, she reached out to check in on us, and provided advice when we needed. She has become such a big part of our family and we are so lucky. Iryna is the best of the best – you NEED to book her!

  • Ishani Shah

    Iryna was an absolutely dream to work with!! After our first screening phone call, I knew I had to hire her as my wedding photographer. She is the most artistic and enthusiastic photographers I have ever come across. She is so easy and fun to work with and will bring in so much positivity to your wedding day. She took the effort to learn all our family members name and got epic shots not only of us but also our near and dear ones.

    Our wedding was a 2 day jam-packed celebration of Tamil and Gujarati traditions. Iryna was able to seamlessly work through the busy schedule, kept us on track and made it a point to get brilliant “magazine-quality” portraits of us even with the minimal time we gave her.

    Her videographer Anatolii also very thoughtfully curated quality videos that which we will cherish for a lifetime.

    All in all, Iryna and her team was the best wedding decision we made and I HIGHLY recommend her.

  • Ria and Sarthak

    Iryna is the BEST!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture the beginning of our new journey as newly weds. I used to dream of how my wedding pictures would look like since I was a kid, and somehow Iryna brought them into reality! She is so hands on with her photography and has a hawk’s eye in making everyone in the pictures pose perfectly by giving amazing posing suggestions! All of our guests loved her! She made us feel super comfortable and became our friend on the first day she talked to us! She was so excited learning about how we met and what we like, which made us trust her so quickly. As we were getting married in a different state than where we lived, I was very skeptical on how would I build a friendly connection with my wedding photographer, but Iryna proved that in today’s digital world, strangers can become amazing buddies without even meeting each other and that too in just one video call! The warmth that Iryna and her team showed us reflected in all of our happily smiling pictures. She is super fast in providing the wedding photos too and it felt like a dream reliving those moments right after the wedding (in a much relaxed state of mind)! I just could not stop smiling scrolling through the gallery. We feel so lucky to have booked her for our big day! Can’t recommend her enough! 😀
