Hire Pasha and his team. It will be the best decision you make for your wedding hands down.
In short: Hire Pasha and his team. It will be the best decision you make for your wedding hands down. He was so easy to work with, fun to hang out with during our wedding, and is truly talented in what he does. If you want artistic shots of memorable moments that you thought no one else saw, hire Pasha.
If you still need convincing, know that hiring Pasha for our wedding was by far the best decision we made. I have been to enough weddings to know that the photos usually are pretty standard. The photographer typically hides behind the scenes somewhere taking the photos they “should” be taking of the perfectly planned and curated moments throughout the day only emerging to take staged portrait shots in perfect lighting of the bride and groom and their family. The photos come out stiff, unnatural, and fake. Our photos from Pasha? Could not have been more different. Having Pasha as our photographer truly was an experience. Pasha and his brother Mark hung out with our wedding squad all day long and actually felt like they were part of our group. We joked with them, laughed with them, and felt so natural like we were just good friends. Our wedding party is still talking about how cool our photographers were because they really were such a memorable part of our day. “Who were those guys?! How did you find them?!” were typical questions we received from our friends. They never made anyone feel awkward, they came right in and immediately got to work, allowing us to enjoy the time with our friends, but also directing us slightly to ensure they got the best shots. Working with Pasha prior to our wedding was also extremely easy. We communicated a lot through Instagram, email and text and we even met in person to discuss our vision. I can honestly say that when I first talked with Pasha on the phone, I felt like he was even more excited for my wedding than I was! He was so genuinely happy to shoot our location (Block Island) and was willing to explore the island to find the perfect unique place for our wedding party shots (we settled on the Bluffs).
Now, let’s talk about the photos. Yes, we did get the necessary portraits with our families and the romantic solo shots of the two of us, but the magic of Pasha’s photos was evident in the candids he took throughout the day of all the special moments that happened that I thought no one else noticed. He captured our friends’ reactions when my husband and I first stepped out together after our first look, he captured my brother’s animated expressions during his off-the-cuff and hilariously inappropriate speech, and he even snapped a few photos of my family dog, Buckie, sitting front row at the wedding looking regal and attentive!
When my husband and I told Pasha that we wanted to take sunset pictures at an alpaca farm, he didn’t bat an eye at our outlandish request. He followed us down to the farm, only to discover the alpacas were nowhere to be found - only donkeys remained! We were a bit embarrassed at our idea but Pasha encouraged us by telling us the lighting was perfect so we twirled around, drank the champagne in our hands, and laughed as the donkeys around us ran in terror of my dress. Those are some of my favorite photos.
Every special moment was captured in such an artistic way, highlighting everything that made our wedding, well, ours. They feel so genuine and we are so grateful we can look back and see all the tears from unassuming family members during the ceremony, and the full belly laughs we shared when hanging out with our friends.
Thank you Pasha and team for everything! Our wedding is a day we will never forget. Everything was so perfect, and now we can look back and remember it forever!

Amazing from start to finish!
Pasha and his entire team were great to work with. He was on top of everything from co-ordinating before the wedding and through the editing process. Very fun and easy to work with.Sent on 10/30/2019

Best Day, Best Photographers!
Pasha and his team did not disappoint on our wedding day. We chose to have 2 shooters and a videographer for the day to make sure we did not miss any of the action. With unruly weather requiring some adjustments and accommodations, there seemed to be no wrinkles that would throw off the photography team. Having the picturesque Newport Vineyards as our backdrop allowed for some amazing shots in the vines with the changing lighting of the setting sun. Our guests had a blast in the photo booth provided by Pasha’s Team and Olga was able to provide the encouragement for any shy guests that needed to grab a prop and take the 3 silly photos.Sent on 07/10/2019
Pasha was thorough and timely with all communication and the engagement photo shoot many months before. We highly recommend booking with Pasha and choosing the package that fits your needs! We couldn't have been happier with our decision. Thank you again Pasha & team!!

Creative and Professional
Plugovoy Photography did an amazing job capturing all the love that was shared on our big day! Pasha is very professional, accommodating, and goes out of his way for his clients. We celebrated our big day at Five Bridge Inn in Rehoboth MA and I’ll never forgot riding in the golf cart to get the perfect shot at the front enterence. It’s clear he’s very passionate about what he does and it truly shows in each picture. If you’re looking for a photographer for your big day, look no further than Plugovoy Photography!Sent on 12/08/2018

If you want the best photos for any event (esp your wedding), this is the team you want!
Working with Pasha and the Plugovoy Photography team, may have been the best decision my wife and I made for our wedding. Pasha was personable, professional, and insightful. He and his team were recommended to us by a friend and after looking at multiple photographers that had the same wedding photos you see everywhere, looking at Plugovoy Photography's portfolio brought some color to an otherwise, black and white process. Their vision, their editing, their imagination. It made it extremely difficult to narrow down just 80 photos we wanted for our wedding album when we could have picked 300 of them.Sent on 12/06/2018
The team was professional and mostly stayed in the backdrop for most of the night. They took such amazing candid shots which is what you miss in most wedding photos. We didn't want the staged, traditional, you stand here and do this photos. We wanted photos with life and the Plugovoy photography team exceeded our expectations.

Pasha and Mark were fantastic! They captured every detail and every special moment, really helping us relive the whole day — and made it all seem effortless and look beautiful! We couldn’t be happier!Sent on 11/14/2017
Sarah · Married on 08/26/2017
Pasha is the absolute best!! My husband and I instantly knew we wanted him to capture the most important day of our lives! Between his professionalism, quality of work, eye for the right photo, and just overall personality he is hard to beat. From our initial meeting, to following up on the details before the big day he was always there to answer questions and make sure it was everything we wanted. He helped us organize our timeline, traveled from East Greenwich to Newport, hopped on a boat, and captured every small detail of our wedding. We were so happy to be able to relive our day. He made everyone feel comfortable and it felt like he was another guest at our wedding. He never put his camera down and we are beyond pleased with every photo he captured! Thank you Pasha!Sent on 10/09/2017
Plugovoy Photography's reply:Sarah thank you for your beautiful words. It was so awesome to see all the familiar faces at your wedding. it was truly a blast shooting your wedding.

Chrissy · Married on 07/22/2017
We got married last July and we received our photos in August 2017. We had just gotten back from our honeymoon and it was so great to be able to sit down and go through them all. But it's literally taken me until now (almost a year later) to narrow down the photos for our album. They are just all so beautiful it was impossible to choose. Pasha and his team were so great to work with during the whole process. I've had several friends get engaged within the last couple of months and will absolutely be recommending Pasha to them.Sent on 06/13/2018

Pasha Plugovoy (the owner) and his brother Mark were extremely friendly, professional, calm (and calming!), attentive to detail, discreet while working, and really added to the overall joy of our wedding day. Pasha took time to meet with us prior to the wedding to get to know us and our likes and dislikes, discuss ideas, scope out our reception venue with us and explore optimal spots for shooting on the actual day. Our wedding photos are artistic, personal, beautiful works of art, and intimately capture "us" and the whole feel of our wedding day. Pasha has a great eye and also knows how to create natural-looking shots vs. a lot of artificial posing. He also took advantage of the natural beauty of our surroundings in impressive ways. The photo shoots at our homes (including family and wedding party members) before the ceremony went so smoothly and the resulting photos (many candid) really captured those final moments of getting ready. During the wedding ceremony (a Catholic Mass, in a church), both photographers were totally discreet and still managed to capture all the highlights beautifully. Pasha and Mark can photograph everything from people to wedding rings with rare artistic and creative skill. We are so happy we found Plugovoy Photography and recommend them highly to anyone who wants quality photography!Sent on 09/04/2017
Plugovoy Photography's reply:Kirsten, thank you for the kind words and we are thrilled that you and Joe are so pleased with the service you received from us. May your life together be just as awesome as your wedding day was.
Clementine · Married on 07/01/2017
Choosing Plugovoy Photography was by far the best decision we made during our wedding planning process. When we met with Pasha initially, we knew that he would be a great fit for us, and he was. He exceeded all of our expectations. He showed up early on the day of the wedding and immediately got to work, capturing candids of everyone getting ready, beautiful and unique shots of our rings, my dress, our invitation suite, etc. We had a large wedding party, so there were lots of different photos to take and people to wrangle, and he managed us all with grace and efficiency. Often taking wedding photos can seem like a chore, especially the formal ones, but not with Pasha.Sent on 09/27/2017
The day was such a blur that I forgot I wanted to take pictures at a certain spot downtown. As we were about to pull away in the trolley, Pasha came running up and reminded us. I am forever grateful for this because he managed to get the best shot of my husband and I from the day. When we got the photos back we were THRILLED! Choosing 80 for our album was very difficult because we truly and genuinely loved them all. Thank you so much, Pasha.
Plugovoy Photography's reply:Clementine and Colin, we can't say enough good words about your wedding!!! You and Colin were so amazing to work with and your wedding was out of this world (your cake was so awesomely wicked, love it). It was truly a super nice experience, capturing your wedding. Much love to you both from Plugovoy team.
heather · Married on 06/17/2017
The best decision I made for my wedding was choosing Plugovoy Photography. Pasha and Mark were incredible. Their style and attention to detail was all that I ever dreamed of. My bridal party still talks about how much fun they were to have around all day. One is likely going to use them for her wedding as well. They were patient yet remained on a schedule all day so we could ensure all photos that were needed were taken. We kept receiving sneak peeks after the wedding while we were in Greece on our honeymoon. It felt like Christmas! Once I received all of the images, I had immediate tears. Pasha’s photos are beyond professional and simply stunning. You can see his passion as clear as day through his photos. I cannot recommend Plugovoy Photography enough. They are incredible and not to mention extremely fair in pricing. I was shopping around and their prices versus others left me with my jaw dropped. You truly cannot go wrong.Sent on 11/20/2017
Plugovoy Photography's reply:Heather and Adam! Thank you so much for allowing and trusting us to capture the most significant day of your lives. We're so grateful for your kind words in the review and overjoyed about your awesome experience with us! Much love!
Elizabeth · Married on 06/16/2017
Pasha and Mark were incredible! We could not have asked for better photographers. They were both in complete control which made our day less stressful. Despite the downpour of rain we had, they found ways to get the shots needed with makeshift covering and honestly were a big part of us enjoying the weather in the end. Pasha was always great to meet with and explained everything clearly. During the reception they did a great job of being on the side capturing the candid moments, but always communicative when needed. And most of all, the pictures came out amazing! A true artist. After being at a few weddings since ours, it confirmed we 100% made the right decision going with Plugovoy Photography.Sent on 12/31/2017

Plugovoy Photography was the very first vendor I booked after my engagement & 18 months before my wedding because I didn't want to them to be booked on our wedding date. Their work is stellar and unmatched. Our family raved about them. They were highly processional, creative, patient, kind, and just incredible at what they do. My new husband and I highly, highly recommend them and several guests asked us for their information for their weddings or events. Even my make up artist, who works with photographers from all over the country, raved about their professionalism and creativity with the shots they were taking while my bridesmaids and I were getting ready. They are simply the best and have several very affordable pricing packages. They even offer a photo booth now, but we just didn't have the space in our venue or we would have purchased that package also. One of the best choices in vendors we made was hiring Plugovoy Photography.Sent on 05/16/2017
Plugovoy Photography's reply:Patricia, we loved working with you and were thrilled when you book Plugovoy team for your wedding.
Vincent · Married on 12/10/2016
First, the short version: YES, you should trust Pasha and his amazing team of photographers to take amazing pictures for you. His combination of creativity, unique viewpoints, bravery (snowstorm!) and talent is what you want. You’ll smile while going through your pics. And that’s all that needs to be said.Sent on 02/08/2018
But if you’re staying for the details……Alright, let’s do this:
We learned a few things from Pasha, Mark and Taylor while they were snapping pics at our wedding. One — we kiss a lot, but that’s beside the point. Two – taking the time to get the small details the way you want them (I mean really putting in the effort) was worth it. And three — we have a lot of people that love us. We now have pictures to prove it all.
Nothing like catching someone smiling at you when they think no one’s looking (except Pasha — he knows, he’s there for the shot). Nothing like going through your wedding photos and seeing a snap of someone writing “stay weird!” in your guestbook, or getting to retell the story of why your wedding dress has a tiny unicorn hanging from it. Nothing like seeing your photographer noticed the little bride-and-groom mice statues you hid inside your pastry tower.
We were gasping when we hit those photos of us outside in the snow. Yeah, we got snow. But Pasha braved the storm (literal storm!) and got out there with us. This guy grabs his assistant, leads the way with his awesomely groomed viking beard and goes to work on absolutely killing the shots. They’re crazy good! Top quality and resolution obviously.
Pasha took the time to meet with us before the wedding to make sure we understood his style and that he understood ours. Everything was comfortable and friendly.
Bottom line? We feel like everything got captured. Not just the people and deco, but the mood of the whole day and night. You want pictures that are YOU? Get someone that lives in the moment and knows how to capture them. Your pics will be amazing and a blast to go through.

We had an amazing experience with Pasha and Mark!!! They were a ton of fun to work with and captured our day perfectly. Just got the images back and they are stunning. Pasha has an artistic eye and really pays attention to every detail in the least obtrusive way possible. All in all it was an exceptional experience.Sent on 12/20/2016

Julie · Married on 09/24/2016
So glad we went with Plugovoy Photography for our wedding this past September! Pasha went above and beyond our expectations. Him and his wife Olga were awesome to work with, friendly, very accommodating, and made us feel very relaxed and natural. The photos came out absolutely stunning and we received them in a very timely manner, about 6 weeks after the wedding. Pasha captured so many moments, a perfect mix of some formal, casual/candids, and artistic shots. We really loved how he captured the beauty of the wedding location, as well as all of the little moments and emotions. Pasha met with us prior to the wedding, was very organized, quick on responding to emails, checked in with us multiple times before the wedding, and was very professional and efficient. The package we chose was awesome and very worth it, including our own usb drive, website link to view all the photos, which made it very easy to select which photos to include in our album. Pasha's talent and passion for photography did not go unnoticed, multiple wedding guests even commented on how great he was. We HIGHLY recommend him! Thank you so much Pasha for capturing our day and leaving us with beautiful memories we will cherish forever!Sent on 11/05/2016
Plugovoy Photography's reply:Julie, thank you for this review. Your wedding was so beautiful and the venue made it that much easier for me to get the awesome shots of your wedding. Congratulations from all of us here at Plugovoy Photography.

Having a top quality photographer to remember our wedding by was one of the most important things on our check list, and we couldn't have been any happier with our decision to go with Plugovoy Photography. Pasha was more than accommodating with our schedules when it came to meetings and engagement shoot dates and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. His style of photography was exactly what we were looking for and he delivered above and beyond our expectations. He took the time to get to know us and we feel that made our engagement shoot and wedding day photos that much more amazing, by getting to know what we liked and wanted. Pasha's work speaks for itself; we are more than happy to recommend Plugovoy Photography to friends of ours and are very thankful we choose such a great photographer to photograph our wedding.Sent on 10/31/2016

Molly · Married on 09/10/2016
My husband and I were beyond impressed with Plugovoy photography (Pasha). This guy crawls in bathtubs, climbs on rocks and even moved an air conditioning unit that was in the way of his shot. I don't think Pasha rested once throughout the wedding. He was constantly moving and capturing the candids throughout the evening. Guests frequently came up to me during the night to ask where I found this guy and for his name!! We were amazed at the quality of his photographs when we received them. He has a unique style that allows you to relive your wedding day. Pasha has an eye for great shots and he's a totally classy guy. He is funny and makes you feel comfortable when he's snapping pictures. You can tell he is truly invested in the photos and doesn't just think about this as a job; it's his passion. Photographs are how you will remember your wedding. Go with a sure thing and hire him!Sent on 10/25/2017

We have nothing but AMAZING things to say about Plugovoy Photography. Pasha was our favorite from the very beginning. Choosing vendors for your wedding can be stressful but Pasha made it easy! He was friendly, always answered and we trusted him right away! We just received the pictures from our wedding on 9/3/16 and we are IN LOVE with them. He is an extremely talented photographer! We had Pasha and his brother Mark shoot our wedding and the day could not have been more perfect. They were a fantastic team! They were calm, professional and extremely accommodating. Everyone was so pleased, my entire wedding party and family felt like they were a part of the family by the end of the night. We used Pasha for our engagement photos as well and it was one of the best decisions we made! I suggest doing an engagement session with him before your wedding! He listened to all of my requests and I cant believe how beautiful the pictures are. We are having such a hard time choosing pictures for our album because they are all so amazing! Look no further! YOU WILL NOT REGRET CHOOSING PLUGOVOY PHOTOGRAPHY. We cant thank you enough Pasha & Mark for so elegantly capturing our big day! We will cherish these photos for a lifetime :)Sent on 10/14/2016

It was a pleasure working with Pasha. He was very accommodating and felt like I was working with a friend. I was nervous that I would feel like I was on camera all day but on the day of the wedding I didn't really notice him taking pictures all night. When we received the final photos it felt like I was reliving the day. Pasha captured the day perfectly!Sent on 08/22/2016

Lauren · Married on 06/18/2016
We found Pasha online and after a phone conversation, review of his work and package prices choosing him as our photographer was a no-brainer. Pasha and his partner captured the the candid emotions of our day to the perfectly posed photos that will be on the mantle for a lifetime. I provided very little direction other than that I wanted just a few of the important posed pics, and many natural candids of the day- and definitely didn't want to miss cocktail hour! Pasha exceeded our expectations and some. his presence was subtle and effortless. Chatting with him throughout the planning process was as easy as a text. I highly recommend Plugovoy Photography!Sent on 08/04/2016

Pasha was an absolute pleasure to work with. We were very impressed with what he had to offer from the very beginning. His work is phenomenal and he always put in 100% effort whether it was the very first meeting we had with him, our engagement shoot session or our wedding day. His effort also shines through his pictures, each one the absolute right position, lighting etc. He was very accommodating during our engagement shoot, it rained that day so we had to change plans and he went with the flow, walked around Boston with us and the pictures came out tremendous! He was always very responsive through email, text and phone. He showed up early and ready to work the day of the wedding with Mark. They make a very great team. It also rained on our wedding day but Pasha got creative and took some really great pictures and made sure to capture all of our special moments. Once the formalities were over and the dancing started, Pasha and Mark were out on the dance floor capturing everything! The pictures from the dance floor are unbelievably funny! He went above and beyond and we are absolutely in love with all of our pictures. We couldn't have asked for anything more. I highly recommend Plugovoy Photography!Sent on 08/10/2016
