    Milana - More Than A Photographer

    I hired Milana for three different life events! We are repeat customers! Milana was so engaged/flexible during the surprise Proposal Shoot and the quality of her work was beyond excellent. So, we decided to hire her for the engagement shoot and then again for our wedding!!! The experience has been amazing working with Milana and we cannot wait to bring her onboard again soon to capture our milestones.

    Milana did an awesome job with my wedding photos. I am very happy with her services. She is very thorough, I had no idea what I really wanted and she helped me plan all the pictures I wanted. I also appreciated how she made our preview photos into a mini slideshow video. My husband and I loved it so much, even our friends commented on how awesome it was. If it weren't for Milana we wouldn't have had any good momentoes to remember our wedding day as our videographer was horrible. Thank you Milana for your personal touches and professional work. You are the best!!

    Milana was such an easy and comfortable photographer to work with! She was detailed with her work, extremely personable and captured moments in the most eloquent way. She truly brought our event to life even weeks after we enjoyed sifting through our photos. Excellent professionalism, magnetism, and we are extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her. She gets it, and goes above and beyond to deliver an amazing experience. Great value, dynamics and professionalism.
    Can't say enough about how much we lived having her!

    Milana was so fabulous to work with from the beginning of the process to the end. Her responsiveness, openness, professionalism, and artistic input put us at ease immediately. Milana quickly establishes a warm rapport, and is so very easy to talk to. She receives input graciously, and asks the right questions so that she can tailor make your special day. Milana is extremely efficient with her time, and is able to take advantage of all photo opportunities, while working tirelessly with the wedding party and the eclectic dynamic of a family. She puts the entire group at ease, and has a confidence and competency that puts you at ease on your special day. We could not be happier with the service and the finished product Milana provided us. Hiring Milana was the best decision we made.

    It was our pleasure working with Milana for our wedding day! She's not just a photographer with the gift to capture every moment, she's sweet, thoughtful, accommodating, very organized and she always has a smile on her face :) Not only was she our photographer, she was our wedding go-to specialist, giving us ideas and always reminding us to make sure specific things are completed before it's too late. Milana is a photographer, planner, coordinator-all in one :) And even though she moved across the country (Atlanta to Cali), she stayed committed to her work--she still flew back to Atlanta just to capture our special day! You Californians are so lucky to have her now! We, Saturday and sherry, thank you Milana for capturing every moment of our special day ;) Love you!

    Our wedding day would have truly been nothing without this wonderful & talented photographer! We got married on March 9th just outside of Boston, MA. At the time, Milana was based out of Atlanta, GA and flew up to work our wedding weekend. Weddings are complex enough, and travel brings that to another level. All of her contact and travel information was provided well ahead of time. She kept in constant communication months prior to the wedding, so I always felt that my wedding was as important to me as it was to her. Milana came incredibly well prepared and organized, ready to tackle any last minute change. The day before our wedding there was a big snow storm which changed where we could take outdoor photos. Within a matter of moments, Milana provided a few solutions and had a plan in place. During the chaos of a wedding, you want to have a seasoned professional on your side who will not only make everyone feel at ease but will deliver stellar work. When we received the photos, we were completely floored. They are incredible! We are so grateful to Milana for all her hard work and dedication. We will have these wonderful memories and for that we are eternally thankful. Look no further for a gifted photographer, and invaluable addition to any special day or event. Thank you, Milana!!!

    Milana was AMAZING!!! If I could give her 5 stars I totally would! She's so attentive, creative, sweet and oh so talented! She was just amazing from our first conversation, until she delivered my final album! I would highly recommend her! There are lots and lots of photographers to choose from out there, I just know I am happy with my choice. A connection with your photographer is just as important as the final product, and we definitely clicked from the first moment we spoke on the phone. I couldn't wait to meet her in person, and once I did, I was ready to sign the contract! I can't wait to use Milana Photography again in the future!!! Thank you again sooooooo much! Oh and we also ordered Videography services from her as well, and our video was sooooo good!!! We have watched it several times already and even had a viewing party with all of our family and friends. 5 Star service all the way!!!

    We couldn't have asked for a better team to be our photographer and Videographer. Milana and her husband were reliable, flexible, professional and very affordable. They both did a superb job with the video and pictures! We received way more photos than we expected, we are beyond satisfied with both services. Job well done!

    When planning for our wedding last year, photography and videography were at the top of y priority list. I had met with several vendors, but nobody wowed me until we met Milana. Her sweet personality, professionalism, awesome price and her portfolio of work really impressed my fiance and us and I knew she was the right vendor for us.

    Milana truly went above and beyond for us. We had our engagement photos done by her as well as our wedding photos and video. She listened to what I wanted, made suggestions and delivered truly gorgeous photos! She and her husband (our videographer) really captured all those special moments of our day and I'm so glad we made the right choice!

    Milana was very flexible with my crazy schedule that included a morning tea ceremony, evening ceremony and then a long reception. She was with us all day, and followed us to several different locations on the day of. She was able to capture every moment of our day, and on top of that, she was able to juggle time constraints, multiple locations and family demands with ease and a smile on her face!

    Milana was truly a dream to work with and I couldn't ask for a better experience, she is the best! I totally recommend her to other brides looking for quality photos at a reasonable price.

    Milana Photography made all the difference in my wedding day. She captured every moment I would want to remember. She was attentive to our every need. Meeting with her prior to the wedding was amazing! She calmed all my fears of missing or forgetting something. I actually extended my time by two hours and she was soooo flexible. The entire experience was awesome!!!! I will continue to use her for all my special events......She's just incredible!!!!!!

    I will never find enough words to describe my experience with Milana. She was sweet from beginning to end. My, at the time, fiancée, fell in love with her the first time we met her. She was nice, punctual, professional, helpful, caring throughout the whole process. Her work turned out to be much better than I expected, there wasn't one picture that I didn't love. You can tell her passion for photography, in my opinion, that's the biggest difference between her and other photographers. Also, I'd definitely recommend her husband as the videographer. Both of them went that extra mile to see my husband and I smile. I'd recommend their services to anyone I know. I can't imagine anyone that would not love Milana as her photographer for that big and special day. To me, she was more than just a photographer, she was emotionally involved with the process. I can't wait for the next time I'll get to hire her services again.

    Milana was the greatest! The wedding day flys by so quickly and so much gets lost in the "chaos" of the day, however I will always have the beautiful memories captured in the pictures to look back....Milana was professional and so sweet! The pictures turned out amazing! She is the best

    I could not have asked for a better photographer or videographer than Milana photography. It was difficult to decide on a photographer because there were so many of them out there. But, I decided on Milana, because I fell in love with her pictures. I was on a budget, but she was so flexible. She added a few things, took out a few things and we were able to decide on a package and a budget that worked for my husband and me. We've actually been married for 15 years, but never had a REAL wedding. And, we only had 4 pictures from our first ceremony. So, we wanted something special and we wanted great pictures and video that we would be able to share with our family, our friends, and one day, our grandkids. Milana delivered. We are so happy with our pictures and video and so happy that we chose her. You will be happy too.

    Milana Photography captures the most important moments in life in a way that allows them to be treasured forever. From the beginning, Milana was professional and involved with my wedding. She took the time to get to know my husband and me and what we envisioned for our wedding. She took the photos that meant the most to me, never rushed me, never pressured me; at times I forgot she was there which allowed her to capture those special candid moments.

    After our wedding she kept me informed with the editing process. As soon as my photographs were available, she sent me the link. I could not believe the quality and detail put into each photo. She captured every moment of my wedding in perfect detail. Moments I wouldn't have thought to ask for and details I didn't even notice. I ordered my wedding album from her as well. She worked diligently with my husband and I to capture my vision in print. It is truly more than I could have ever expected from a photographer and she did it all with a genuine smile on her face and sense of excitement that was contagious. Milana is every brides dream! And I know she will be our family photographer forever...

    Milana and Bernard have done everything possible to make sure that my husband and I are content with our video. They did an awesome job with our video. They did everything that they said they were going to do. They are also VERY flexible. I also loved how detailed they were the day of our wedding. They captured every little detail so that I could have that memory forever. We couldn't have made a better decision on a videographer. The day of our wedding, she captured several scenes that were so important to us and she made it possible for it to fit in the video. Thank you Milana and Bernard for the wonderful work that you have done with our video. We LOVE it!!

    Milana Photography truly provided us with five star service on our wedding day. Steve, our videographer, could not have been more professional and had a friendly demeanor to help keep everyone at ease. Our Wedding and Reception were both outdoors and we a little worried about inside and outside lighting issues but none were to be seen on the DVD's. You will love working with them.

    Milana and Bernard did an awesome job. We got married Labor Day Weekend 2009 and we were very glad we found Milana Photography. They exceeded our expectations and provided a service o high excellence. They counseled us with their expertise giving us suggestions that collaborated to a great event and also, sweet memories. We love our photos and video. These people were on time, delivered before schedule and were very flexible to work with our budget.

    Milana is a very easy going person, sensitive to what is around her to quickly provide suggestions and act based on the information that was given to her.
