We are Storytellers | We observe and capture what we see through our lens and narrate the story that we witnessed with all the emotions and sentiments that come with the memories. We have been telling stories for many years, sometimes we can predict the plot, sometimes we still get surprised. We are always looking for the next amazing story to tell.

Be yourself, we will do the rest! Most of our couples tell us they are not photogenic and awkward in front of the camera. We respond “great!” We love awkward silly couples who laugh and giggle in front of the camera. We love capturing those moments and we have the vision to make it look absolutely natural, fun, and flattering. You will love how different a photo looks between a camera phone versus a professional photographer who gives direction and understands flattering angles.

On your wedding day you will see us arrive ready to shoot, and within 30 minutes you’ll forget we are there capturing every moment around you. We are not intrusive and we stay out of everyone’s way, but we will step up when needed to direct a shot or to assist in any way we can. Outside the formal photo session for bridal party or family and friends, we prefer to capture candids and action that tell the wedding story. We believe a narrative should not be endless group portraits, but we always welcome a spontaneous group hug in front of our camera.

Tony & Olya | We met in 2011 as photographers for Jalopnik at the New York Auto Show. We were both the nerdy type and had a very similar sense of humor. We gradually grew stronger in our friendship as we worked at weddings together and hung out and did everything together over the course of 4 years. It was at the end of the 4 year mark where we realized we were meant for each other and loved each other, and decided that we would take the next steps into a romantic relationship. After one year of serious dating and an overwhelming love for each other, we got engaged on the West Coast married just a month later. We are inseparable, our work inspires each other, and we both make each other a better person and artist. We love that the moments we capture and tell are treasured by our couples!

Your wedding is a unique reflection of you. That’s why we love getting to know you, and your wedding details, personally. Knowing your wedding day dreams helps us create authentic images that reflect the real you. Our shooting style produces images that reveal the intimate and authentic expressions of the love and commitment you share. Unguarded and natural.

Your wedding day will be filled with extraordinary moments — intimate, surprising, and joyous. Captured creatively, those moments shine through as timeless heirlooms, instantly bringing you back to the essence of your day.

We capture the beauty of the day.

    Jessica's & Ryan Wedding

    We had the pleasure of having Tony & Olya capturing our engagement in October 2020. They were both in on the surprise engagement and captured the moment BEAUTIFULLY! So when we were ready to select vendors for our wedding, Tony & Olya were on the top of our list and we knew we had to reach out to secure our date with them. They were both incredibly kind and super helpful throughout the entire process, and no matter how major or small the questions were they were always there to help give their advice and expertise. The day of was incredible not just because of the wedding, but how efficient, creative and flexible they were with managing their time. The photos we've gotten so far have blown us away so far and are eager to get the rest! Tony & Olya are not only talented photographers, but a genuine down to earth couple who loves what they do. We can not thank them for all they've done throughout the last two years, and we would recommend them to every couple we know!

    Amazing Photographers!!!

    We have been following Tony and Olya’s photography for years and always wanted them to be our wedding photographers. From the beginning, they were really nice, patient, and professional. We opted for the premier package and recently had our engagement session. My fiancé and I have never taken professional photos but with their cues and direction, we instantly felt comfortable and really trusted them. They sent us the photos earlier than promised and we are amazed at their creativity and how they could capture our personalities and genuine happiness. We are absolutely in love with our photos and all of our friends and family love them as well. We are super excited for our wedding photos next year and are so happy we chose Tony and Olya for our photographers!!! Thank you SO much! -Stephanie & Austin
