Yuri is an amazing photographer and was an absolute pleasure to work with. After seeing his work from my sister’s wedding, my wife and I knew we had to have him as our wedding photographer.
From the beginning, working with Yuri is a great experience; shortly after submitting a quote request, Yuri emailed us and set up a Skype call to go through any questions and concerns for the engagement session as well as for the big day, and he remained in contact as both dates drew close.
The engagement session was fun, and is something we both recommend. It gave us an opportunity to get comfortable with Yuri and how he works, which was invaluable on the wedding day.
On the day of the wedding, Yuri was a pleasure to work with. Both my wife and I have relatively large extended families, but we managed to get through all the must-have family photos in the limited time we had prior to the ceremony as well as the wedding party photos afterwards. Outside of the must-have, posed photos, Yuri was out-of-sight and out-of-mind, capturing beautiful photos of the venue and décor and candid photos that our friends and family raved about.
For the wedding, we also opted for the Simple Booth with Yuri, which is another option we highly recommend. All our guests absolutely loved using the photobooth—the photos aren’t just stills, but are (very) short GIFs—and we loved the simplicity of the booth, since it was easy to access and didn’t take a lot of space on the dance floor.
Overall, his work captures the beauty and emotions of each moment. If you are on the lookout for a professional engagement and/or wedding photographer who can take beautiful, candid photos, we 100% recommend him!
