Wonderful & Fast!!!
Y&K Photography is absolutely wonderful all the way around!!! The wedding package we paid for got us 10 hours of coverage with Yanko & Kalina, which was over 2,000 photos from venue & getting ready through the ceremony & reception to night couple photos. We got married on Saturday, September 28, 2019 and I received an email Tuesday, October 1, 2019 in the morning informing me wedding photos were complete and ready for download. They were always in communication with me and created a photo timeline based on the information I told them. They helped throughout the wedding day. They make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and are super friendly and relaxed. The package included our engagement photo session (over 200 photos) and all digital downloads for the wedding and engagement sessions. I even did a boudoir session with Kalina as a wedding gift for my husband. I will definitely be using Y&K Photography for all of my photo needs. I highly recommend Y&K Photography for all your professional photography needs.Sent on 10/08/2019

Yanko and Kalina were the perfect addition to our wedding day. From our first informal meeting where we had the pleasure of getting to know their beautiful souls, we just knew they had to be a part of our wedding day. They captured every single beautiful moment and we could not be happier with our wedding pictures. Their kindness, warmth and passion shines through in all that they do. I cannot wait for them to capture more of life’s beautiful moments in the years to come. I highly recommend them! You won’t be disappointed.Sent on 06/19/2019
