What are couples buzzing about?

Yana is a true artist with a journalistic sentiment, and a well trained eye for capturing a feeling, a setting, and the very lighting and angles that create the perfect tones. On a day that feels as fleeting as that perfect moment, Yana was able to capture every sweet detail so that my partner and I will be able to look back after years and feel that we are there again amongst the special moments that went as quickly as the blink of an eye.

Before starting the search, I had to work around two of my husband's requests: 1. No second-shooters and 2. "No crazy filters or poses". I ultimately interpreted this as: someone who is confident, capable of putting awkward people at ease, has a photo journalistic style, and excels working with both natural and artificial light. With all of that in mind, I have to say that stumbling upon Yana's website was a serendipitous moment.

Yana's artistic eye not only for the perfect candid shot but the overall editing makes the photos look and feel so natural and effortless. Looking through our photo gallery instantly takes us back to that day. Her photos truly captured all of the emotions and joy of our wedding.

HIDDEN GEM ALERT!!! Yana is amazing! I am obsessed with the quality, the poses, the lighting - everything. She was so easy to work with and I would recommend her EVERY time!

Yana gave us just enough guidance but still allowed our own personalities to come through. And the photos are absolutely amazing!!

Yana's aesthetic and technique allowed her to craft unique and timeless pictures that my family and I will forever cherish.

Yana managed to capture the "spirit" of the people and the event with unique photos, but also gave us some fantastic portraits to remember the day by.

Yana's work is year beyond the competition.

We did an untraditional, very small city hall wedding and decided at the very last minute that we wanted a photographer. Yana made it happen for us!
