Nik and Elena Captured Our Wedding Beautifully
Nik and Elena were a joy to work with. They are a nice young couple who made my fiancee (now wife) and I very comfortable during our engagement shoot because they would demonstrate the poses themselves. For the wedding, we were very pleased with how the photos came out and the ideas Nik and Elena had. They seem to have all the latest gadgets, and Nik even used a drone to get awesome aerial footage of the venue that captured the bride getting ready through the window. Overall, a very nice, professional, and reliable couple to work with who provided us with beautiful memories that will last forever.Sent on 03/25/2019

We had our engagement ceremony during cherry blossom period in 2018 in DC - Elena and Nikita did an amazing work! It was our second photo session (we did Love Story last year) with Elena and this time she helped/consulted me to chose the colors of our outfits and the exact location as we both love T.Jefferson memorial. On the day of the photo session Elena and Nikita arrived earlier to set up and prepare everything for the session. I always considered myself as a non-photogenic person, so I was worried. Through the photo session, Elena helped me to relax, be myself and more over, open myself up from a different side I have never seen. I felt so confident and as if I have always been a model. Also, my fiancé enjoyed the session and the work Elena and Nikita put in to us. They both continuously helped us, by saying where to look, how to stand, how to put our hands- so we looked incredible! We are so lucky, we had them to shoot our Engagement session. We are now planning our wedding- overseas, and we are definitely inviting them, so stay tuned to see their unbelievable work!Sent on 05/27/2018

The Best--Made everyone look stunning and captured naturally happy moments
Elena is Extremely professional and gifted. She works with her husband (they are so cute) so you essentially get two for the price of one. The Background: I met Elena and within 30 seconds of meeting her I knew I would I hire her. I booked a photographer and that photographer, who will remain unnamed, backed out 90 days before my wedding. we were already on a short timeline (5 month engagement). So I was in a panic. Also, I'm the worst bride ever and I have a super busy job and no wedding planner and I had no idea what to ask, look for, etc. She met me on a short turnaround and was very responsive throughout the process. She was professional & patient. Every questions she asked of me, my answer was: "um, I don't know." and she was very patient and professional and told me how she ran things. I knew she was perfect because she would guide me through the day. Wedding Day: The weather was gross and the church did not allow flash photography but My photos are perfect. Also I was running late to the ceremony and stressed out but she told me to wait and take some bridals...I think I was a bit annoyed and stressed but it was worth it. She said something to the effect of "they can't start without you" and took some beautiful photos of me on a Colonial Couch....it was stunning. My husband absolutely HATES taking photos but she captured some amazing VERY NATURAL shots of the two of us...truly talented.. I will absolutely be recommending Elena and calling her for any future life events. THANK YOU!Sent on 01/07/2019
