We couldn’t have asked for anyone better!!
We cannot thank Tony and Olya enough!! Where do we even begin? We purchased the full package so that we can establish a relationship with the two from start to finish and we definitely did. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, the two made everything SO easy. Not only that, but they were so flexible. We had decided to have a traditional ceremony the night before the wedding and needed them for about two hours. They were accommodating and came the night before the wedding without any issues! For the wedding day, not only were they our photographers, but they helped us with any issues we had! Tony was always looking out for the best lighting, where the best locations were. Olya went out of her way to constantly fix my dress and take the time to make it look good (still cannot thank you enough for that!!). She also gave us last minute first dance tips because we were still a little rusty on our moves. I can go on and on, but the most important thing is that their skills are exceptional. They are a kind, professional team who take absolutely beautiful photos. Our family and friends are still complimenting us about the photos. Please let us know when it’s time for the strawberry margaritas !! Thank you thank you!Sent on 09/25/2019

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 & AustinSent on 12/31/2019

Professional, responsive, and friendly!
Olya and Tony were the best vendor at our wedding. They were extremely professional and responsive, and consistently added value with ideas and suggestions. They had a really comforting ability to shepherd the scene (and contain the madness!). Their presence throughout the day was ubiquitous, yet seamless and non-disruptive. Now that we've also seen the output of their work, we are also impressed by the quality of their photos! Their work is sharp and insightful, capturing emotion and all the details of the moment. We actually got new perspective on our own wedding which we missed the day-of, just from reviewing their reel. Couldn't recommend them more highly!Sent on 09/25/2019

Friends of ours had recommended Tony and Olya, and we could not have been happier with using them as our wedding photographers!Sent on 09/28/2019
After rescheduling our engagement shoot due to bad weather, our rescheduled date also ended up being a rainy day for the end, but Tony and Olya had the best attitudes and ensured that we would still get amazing photos- and they were right! Being stressed out over the weather, our hair, clothes, etc. they were able to make us feel comfortable which resulted in some amazing photos in Hoboken with the skyline behind us.
Tony and Olya also captured our wedding day SO beautifully - it is so hard to choose a favorite photo from the day. They are both such kind, easygoing, flexible vendors to work with - I would recommend to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

Captured Our Fairytale Day
We hired Tony & Olya for our engagement shoot and wedding day, and could not more highly recommend them as photographers.
When going through their body of work, what stuck out to me was that every engagement/wedding that they have photographed clearly has a style to them that is unique to the couple they were working with. It is a beautiful testament to their artistry that they can have a distinct signature style and still bring out the elements of someone else so authentically at the same time. They both knew how to be directive without bossy, and the extra loving touch I appreciated from both of them was how they would listen to our suggestions as well and roll with what felt comfortable and natural to us.
In addition to being great photographers, Tony & Olya are great people to have in your corner on your big day. Olya went above and beyond in wrangling a stray cousin who insisted she was the photographer for the day and handled the situation with so much grace and patience. Tony was a candid moment ninja. When looking through our sneak peeks, my husband could not believe what shots he captured without anyone noticing he was there.
I am so relieved to know that our special day was held in such capable hands. My husband and I cannot wait for the rest of our photos! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Tony & Olya.Sent on 06/14/2019

Storytelling made easy
We hired Tony and Olya as our wedding photographers and couldn't have asked for more beautiful photos! I had initially received about 10 recommendations from friends and family and their portfolio was the one that my husband and I fell in love with, and were in our budget! It was important for us to find photographers who told a story in their work. We both work in advertising and have experience understanding how brands tell their story and Tony & Olya made our love story come to life!
From the moment we met to talk through what we were looking for, understanding how they would be working on the day of our wedding through every step of the way made it easy for us to hire them! We ended up going with the all-day coverage package and added on the engagement photos. If you're a bride who is on a budget, please be sure not to skimp on the engagement session. It gives everyone the opportunity to get to know one another and to hone in on their style, thus ensuring your wedding photos are exactly what you're looking for. Tony and Olya made us feel comfortable and we honestly just had fun so the pictures were both candid and portrayed the story of our love.
Thank you so much, Tony and Olya! Maybe baby photos are next? =)Sent on 11/02/2019

Great photographers who put us at ease
We hired Tony and Olya to photograph our wedding in March 2019. In looking for a photographer, we were drawn to their documentary style and the creative way they frame images. We were both concerned we would be awkward during the posed photo sessions and felt their style could help us get the best photos possible. Tony and Olya asked to meet with us, as they feel that meeting with couple in advance is important to put us at ease. They were absolutely right, and I am glad they asked to meet in advance so we could be as comfortable as possible. When we spoke to Olya the week before our wedding, she was calm and collected, making us feel calm by extension. On the day of, they were timely and organized. They took charge when needed so we could ensure we got all the shots we wanted, mostly blended into the background of the day so it would be captured in the documentary style that we wanted. They were fantastic, and a delight to work with. We are so excited to see the photos.Sent on 04/07/2019

When it came time to hire our engagement/wedding photographers, my wife already had her mind set on Tony and Olya for years and I'm so glad she did. On first meeting them they made us feel comfortable and at ease. Besides being so personable and likeable, Tony and Olya are great at picking the right moments and angles to photograph. On our wedding day we could tell they were comfortable with the space and more importantly, communicated what shots were needed without even speaking. They are able to sense moments and get amazing shots and are really just great to work with. We also absolutely love their style and how our pictures turned out. Tony and Olya are an amazing team. We can't wait to see them again at one of our friends' weddings!Sent on 01/09/2019

A lot of times wedding photographers will say that "you won't notice we're there" as a way of conveying that somehow, some way, these amazing wedding shots will magically appear by the end of the day as if they were taken by highly trained photography ninjas who were stealthily following your every step undetected. In all the right ways my wife and I found Tony and Olya's promise to somehow not interfere with our experience, all the while capturing its energy and emotion to be true. Our wedding day flew by, and then somehow we received these amazing pictures that blew our minds.Sent on 09/28/2018
But on the other end I have to say, I did notice them. You notice their attention to detail. You notice how comfortable you feel because both Tony and Olya have such wonderful and giving personalities. You notice their teamwork and communication. You notice how easy it is to trust their commands and directions. You certainly notice the pictures once they come out.
On the one day we had available to shoot our engagement photos the weather turned out to be windy, cold, and the most drab grey you could imagine with the forecast that it was going to rain. We were on the clock to get these photos out and we knew Tony and Olya's schedule was booked for a while. While we played with the idea of trying to reschedule later for better weather, my wife and I decided to trust in our photographers. To trust in their talent that just because things might have seemed dreary to our eye, didn't mean that it would look that way on camera. Tony and Olya didn't even blink, they took us out to our makeshift engagement photo location to adjust to the weather and they made it look like we went to 5 different locations. Thanks to their amazing talent our engagement photos come out beautifully!
If you want a duo of photographers who work seamlessly together and can make magic out of any scenario than I have to say that Tony and Olya have to be the best in the business.
Esther · Married on 01/06/2018
Tony has a way of capturing moments at THE perfect time. I had the privilege of having both Tony and Olya shoot my engagement and wedding photos. Wherever we were going, I could see Tony eyeing every alley and any area for potential photo ops. While Olya focused on the little details that meant a lot to me, she was mindful in keeping me warm and also taking breaks in between.
It takes a while for my husband to get comfortable with strangers, let alone someone that's pointing a camera at you. At our engagement shoot, he was nervously giggling through it all and you'd never know it! They're both so easy going that throughout the shoot it just got easier and easier. Clearly they've been doing this for a very long time, they don't even need any direction from you, which made my life so much easier. They know exactly where they need to be and when.
It's amazing how I can relive every moment by looking through the photos they have taken. It's true what they say on their website, they're story tellers. Trust them and the direction they lead you... they know what they're doing =)Sent on 02/28/2018

I didn't think perfection existed, but it does with Tony and Olya
Tony and Olya are among the most talented, experienced photographers in the industry, truly living up to their name as visual storytellers. They captured the entirety of my wedding day better than I imagined. What I love most about their style is that, in a single shot, they were able to artistically capture genuine moments of tenderness and happiness — beautiful moments that speak volumes and could never be staged (although they did direct our few posed shots and they came out incredible too).Sent on 06/20/2019
They were so accommodating, creative, professional, and responsive, and their dynamic as a team is flawless. They did the impossible and helped us get comfortable in front of the camera, and even the logistical tasks of coordinating payments and receiving photos electronically were seamless experiences. Working with them was such a pleasure (and so much fun) — I would work with them again in a heartbeat!
Alexa · Married on 09/23/2016
Tony and Olya were absolutely flawless. They have an eye for getting the best shot, and they don't over-direct so that the people being photographed felt awkward or inauthentic. They knew just how to make everyone feel comfortable enough so that the true essence of love and happiness of the day could be captured in those photos. They captured each essential part and the quality of photos is just stunning. Very manageable from a financial perspective as well! I will be recommending them to everyone I know and we will definitely be using them again in the future for more life shoots! Thank you Tony and Olya! We love you!Sent on 12/20/2016
yasmeen · Married on 09/04/2016
Olya is the most friendly, easy going photographer I have ever met. She genuinely and sincerely loves what she does, and made the whole process for us as an awkward couple so easy. The shots of course, turned out GORGEOUSLY. So much care and effort was put into editing the photographs to make the lighting and the mood even more fairytale-esque. I could not recommend her photography more!!Sent on 11/20/2016
Sara · Married on 07/09/2016
I have had great experiences and miserable experiences with vendors. Tony + Olya go in the category of FANTASTIC!! they are easy going and made me feel comfortable. As someone who hates her picture being taken, they reassured me that I would barely know that my picture is being taken. Very true!! We are exceedingly pleased with our engagement pictures and the sneak peak we have gotten thus far, and I have no doubt that the rest of our pictures will be amazing!Sent on 09/08/2015
They were very flexible with scheduling and took into consideration what we wanted as a couple. Our day was a bit misty and it had rained the night before, so we didn't want to get all wet from the grass during our first look pictures, so Tony + Olya went and scoped out a new location that was not in the grass. I loved it more than the original spot.
In terms of picture turn around, I was eager, so I was probably a pain in the neck, but it's barely 5 months past our wedding and we will have the rest of our pictures! So exciting!
I truly feel they captured who we are as a couple and I wish I could post pictures with the review to show my love for their work.

The moment I saw Tony's work on his website I knew that I had to have him photograph my wedding. The use of light and the colors in the images on his website made my decision easy.Sent on 11/24/2015
Tony makes great use of the space available to him and was able to get all the poses I wanted (while managing my wedding party expertly). We had Irish Step Dancers as a surprise during the reception, with the dancers wearing black outfits and black tights, against a darker background. The photos that resulted are phenomenal! You would not guess that the lights were turned down in the hall. I also really loved the candids he was able to capture, they're phenomenal.

I discovered Tony through my cousin who hired him as both an engagement and wedding photographer. Out of all the vendors I used for my wedding, he is definitely on the top of the list to recommend to others.Sent on 08/16/2015
As photography hobbyists, my husband and I were very picky about our photographers. Tony fit the bill with his style of photography, ease & price.
He shoots with a journalistic eye and not intrusive at all. He is like a flower on a wall but in a good way. He directs you if needed, but otherwise captures the day as it flows, which is exactly what we wanted. I've seen other photographers bark orders at the bride and groom getting them into position but Tony guides and lets the natural movements of love and joy happen between the bride and groom, family and friends.
Aside from getting great photos of us, he also got great photos of family and friends. Everyone raved about the photo because of the emotion he captured. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Check out his website. You'll totally know what I'm saying when he captures the emotions, mood, and day as it goes. He lets the natural emotions of the day shine.

Tony is not only really talented but he is so easy to work with. I have known Tony for a long time now and had a few reservations about hiring a friend (you know, because you don't want to get all Bridezilla with a friend!). But there is no doubt, Tony knows weddings. You can absolutely trust that you will be in great hands and you will be so happy with the results. I've had a lot of friends tell me that they wish they hired a better photographer for their own weddings but I never had that problem at all. Your wedding photos are the one thing you get to keep after it is all said and done so make sure you choose someone who won't let you down. Thank you Tony for the amazing experience & photos! xoSent on 05/21/2015

Tony is a photographer's photographer. He is talented and knows how to capture candid moments in a natural way. His wedding photos are unique and artistic, and he has a great eye for colors, details and can work wonderfully with natural light. I hired him because I didn't want to typical cheesy, staged wedding photos that you see every where else. I wanted photos are are modern, full of emotions, movements and life. That was what he delivered!! We had a wedding at the One and Only Ocean Club in the Bahamas and he did a wonderful job for us! He is professional, punctual and patient. Just everything I wanted in a photographer for my big day! I am more than happy with my photos, exceeded my expectations. Thank you Tony!Sent on 06/24/2015
