We couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Marina was simply incredible. Everyone who sees our photos marvels at the quality and artistic composition. Seriously, I can't imagine going with anyone else. The memories of our day that Marina captured exceeded even our highest expectations.
Kevin and I chose Marina based off other reviews that we had read about her through various web searches Thank God we did! She was singularly the best vendor/service provider we had throughout our entire wedding experience, hands down. She is an amazing, amazing photographer who is both incredibly talented and also a wonderful person to work with.
Marina really goes out of her way to make sure that she does the best job possible. She had a great assistant with her, was completely unobtrusive and respectful, and when we received the pictures I was just in awe of her talent and so grateful that we had picked her. Our wedding was probably not the easiest for her to shoot: it was one of the hottest days of summer, humid beyond imagination, and (as we later found out through friends) had a few impediments thrown before her that she dealt with grace and professionalism.
If you get Marina as a photographer (book her early!!!!!) you will have wedding pictures that are unique and stunning. She does not do generic pictures--she has an amazing range that captures the beauty of your day in ways you couldn't have imagined. Everyone that has seen them so far is absolutely blown away and thinks that they look like something you see in a magazine--just spectacular. And she is funny and so sweet to work with. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
Marina was simply AMAZING at our wedding. Throughout the chaos she kept a smile on her face, directed us where to go, helped me with my dress, kept my dogs off me and the maids, didn't seam stressed - which helped with my stress, and waited for me at my house for over an hour while we were late at the salon...she was silly and professional at the same time. She got great shots because our chemistry was wonderful! She did more than your average photographer by helping me through the ceremony and with all the rush. I would recommend Marina to ANY bride - she is a PERFECT choice AND nicely priced :)
Thank you for all you did for us on our special day Marina!

Marina Z is a rare gem in the wedding photographer business. She is a
wedding photographer who is extremely talented, creative and
passionate whom at the same time will not settle for anything less
then perfection and will go to great lengths to get the perfect shot
(including standing up on benches at high angles) and whose
personality is a nice mix of professionalism and authenticity. She
was our wedding photographer for our summer wedding and the
photographs she took were absolutely breath taking and she truly was
able to capture the magic of our day. I highly recommend Marina Z
for your wedding photographer. With so many choices out there for
wedding photographers and many who are not forthright, look no further
then Marina Z for someone who is talented, completely honest with you
and who also has very reasonable pricing. She is very quick to
respond to any questions via email, which I really appreciated during
the entire wedding planning process. She also had the ability to put
me at ease on my actual wedding day and had amazing suggestions for
fun poses with my wedding party. She did a great job of "herding"
our families together for photos afterwards as well. After our
ceremony she took a series of photos around the garden and inside a
historic building of just my husband. It made us feel like the only
couple in the world, it was a very romantic time to have the photos
taken right after the wedding and these photos came out amazing.
Most importantly, she was able to meet me and my bridesmaids very
early in the morning at a salon for "work in progress" photos, this
was quite amazing because it was so early and Marina arrived with her
assistant fully awake, aware and ready for the day. Marina Z and her
assistant did a great job of shadowing us all day with photograph
taking, and I never felt they were to invasive or distracting at all.
Also, the addition of the photo booth at our reception was a blast!
Many of my guests took advantage of the booth and the pictures came
out hilariously good. I am still in awe of how good the photos came
out and was a joy to share the photos with my wedding guests as well.
I will no doubt look at these pictures many times, and will always
remember how lucky I was to have found Marina Z as my wedding
Marina was wonderful to work with and the pictures she took at our wedding are amazing! My husband and I were very happy with Marina's professionalism, flexibility and talent. We can highly recommend her to anyone.
Marina is by far the most professional and talented photographer that I have encountered. Her skill with angles, lighting (both ambient and projected), depth of field, and the overall aesthetic that is captured in her images is par-none. Were she more well known, I would have no doubts that she would be winning awards for her work.
My wife and I checked out numerous photographers before finding Marina. When we saw her work we knew that she was the right match for us, visual-wise. When we met her, our feelings were solidified. She is extremely personable and will work with her clients to help create the visual image that they would like, which also reflects her superb creativity and visual flair. She is incredibly easy to work with and we simply can't speak highly enough regarding her people skills.
Marina's approach to wedding photography is very laissez-faire. With minimal direction for "set" photographs (such as wedding parties and engagement sessions) she will guide the couple or group into the general direction in which she pictures the scene and then let you do your thing. Her guidance combined with the additional "hands-off" approach leads to some phenomenal moments that would otherwise never be captured on camera. It is a remarkable mix in which she orchestrates her filming.
Marina's customer service is excellent. We are friends with her on Facebook and communication has never been an issue. I'm truly proud to say that she is the one who did our wedding photos.
Photography has been a background for members of my family, and we can all honestly say that we are thoroughly impressed with all aspects of Marina's work. We really can't recommend her highly enough. You won't go wrong if you choose Marina Zinovyeva for your wedding photographer.
Marina is simply AMAZING! She goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. Im so glad that we had her to capture the best day of our lives. We look forward to using her in the future!!
Incredible Professional!! Marina is more than personal and sincerely cares about how her photographic subjects feel and making them happy! Marina goes above and beyond what is asked of her and makes suggestions that adds wonderful excitement and lifetime memories to any event. Her kindness, professionalism, and sincerity makes her a fantastic wedding/event photographer. I've also used her for professional headshots and she is terrific! Highly recommend at least meeting Marina and see what she offers personally that is lacking in many other professionals! Thank you for everything, Marina!
Marina was awesome and her work speaks for itself. We had such a great time working with Marina, she was full of fresh new ideas. Unlike some of the other photographers we met with, Marina was so helpful and easy to work with. She was very flexible with us and was willing to accommodate any new ideas we wanted to incorporate. She was also quick to respond to all of our email communications, which is vital when planning a destination wedding. I think the value of her 8 hour package including the photo booth is well worth the cost. We would have spent an extra $2000 if we hired a photo booth separately, you can't beat that value. Once you meet Marina you can't help but like her, she has a wonderful personality which really comes through in her work.
Marina was awesome and willing to get down and dirty to get the shots needed. The Photo Booth was a huge hit and Highly recommended. Everyone loved it and said it added a festive touch to the night.
Marina was excellent! She is a very kind person who greatly added something to our special day. Our photos are beautiful and we couldn't be happier.
What a talented young woman. I had so much fun working with her.
I never thought i could look like one of those models on a cover of a magazine.
Don't forget to ask her about engagement and boudoir session. My bf absolutely loves our pictures.
I also want to mention that her packages seems really reasonable for the high quality services that she provides.
I can't recommend Marina's services highly enough. Both my wife and I work in digital imaging and are also amateur photographers who've shot a wedding together, so we feel very qualified in giving Marina's work our highest praise. The number of little beats that Marina captured were extraordinary, and we noticed moments that we never would have enjoyed if she hadn't caught them with her camera! She had no problem staying late when our reception ran long, and she got the images back to us only a couple weeks after we were back from our honeymoon. After looking at a lot of wedding photography while planning ours, I'm very proud to say that our photos are unique and captured our day superbly. I would refer her to any of my friends and family in a heartbeat!
Everything was fantastic with Marina Zinovyeva! My photographer was so nice to work with and really helped guide us all day. She stayed until the end of the night and we are very pleased with how the pictures and the album turned out
Marina was wonderful to work with. My friends and family have been in awe of the quality of photos she's provided. She's an absolute sweetheart and I would recommend her to anyone.
Marina really takes her time in knowing the persons needs and preferences. She takes into account every little detail of one of the biggest events in ones life would be captured in superior quality. Great thanks to Marina and her truly amazing talent as a photographer and as a person!!!
