Truly the Best!
TL:DR: Yana is an incredible photographer, and if you decide to work with her, you’ll be left extremely happy you made the decision!Sent on 09/29/2020
Long version: We were excited to get our engagement photos done, but have never done professional photos before, and had to start from scratch. We didn’t know what the best location to be, what to wear, or anything. Working with Yana was the answer to all of those questions! She suggested we do it at the Silver Lake Dunes on Lake Michigan, and the photoshoot that ensued was nothing short of a complete delight. She was very professional and gave us plenty of directions, while also keeping it fun and lighthearted. It’s a tough task to make two people unfamiliar with posing or photography look and feel comfortable, but she did both seamlessly. We spent two fun hours doing a series of different positions, angles, activities, etc, and to say that the photos turned out wonderfully would be a huge understatement! We had high expectations since we knew that she was talented from her posts on Instagram, but she still managed to blow us away! We hoped to have the photos ready to send Save the Dates in a month, but she had nearly all of them processed in two days! Delivering that kind of all around great, considerate service, while still making it all an enjoyable experience is what sets Yana apart. So to sum it all up, like we said earlier, if you want a photographer who will capture all the love and emotions of your special moments and provide a wonderful experience, you couldn’t ask for a better person than Yana!

Yana was absolutely great! We chose to go with Yana for our September 2021 wedding and have already had our engagement photo session with her. She is so easy to work with and incredibly talented at capturing genuine interactions. She makes you feel comfortable the entire time which reflected in the photos and they really came out beautifully. She suggested our location and we couldn't have loved it more. Would recommend her to anyone!! Cannot wait for her to capture our Wedding next year.Sent on 10/12/2020

Yana is an Amazing Elopement Photographer!
In every way Yana exceeded our expectations. We were lucky enough to secure her services with relatively short notice. We knew nothing about adventure elopement, other than we wanted our day to be unique, special and beautiful, and that it would just be the two of us. Our plan was loose, with only a general idea of where we wanted to hold the ceremony. We definitely needed some guidance.Sent on 10/05/2020
Without prompting, Yana provided half a dozen adventurous location options (and weather contingencies), including details such as hotel recommendations, how to secure flowers and makeup, and food options in each location. Yana then actively helped us narrow down our options and ultimately choose the ideal wedding spot.
The day of the ceremony, Yana was punctual, considerate and thoughtful. Her demeanor was laid back and she was dedicated to making sure we were getting the most romantic and creative images. We very much enjoyed Yana's company. It was a fun and professional day.
Finally, both the turnaround time and photo quality were orders of magnitude more excellent than we could have imagined. Colorful, expressive and bold, the photographs captured the moment while leaping from the page. Truly exceptional. We have been begging to show them to everyone we see.
We absolutely recommend Yana to any couple considering an elopement. Amazing service, quality and experience.
