Wedding of Iryna and Richard

Dear Elena and Yury

We just wanted to say a big thank you for all your hard work that you have done prior to the wedding and on the big day.

You have captured the special moments of the day. The style of the photography was what we were looking for, natural and relaxed.

We have had our engagement photosession in the Autumn at Kedleston Hall. We would definitely recommend to have engagement photo shoot as it helps to have practice before the big day and helps to understand the style.

We were relaxed on the day as we knew that the pictures and the details were handles by professionals. What we really appreciate was little 'interference' on the day, and thank you for taking advantage of the best part of the day to get pictures we wanted.

Thank you. Richard and Iryna


Wedding of Christine and Lee

Thank you so much for capturing our special day so brilliantly. You were both a pleasure to work with on the day and in the engagement shoot. We weren't the bravest of couples when it comes to having our photos taken, but you made it relaxed and calm.

Thank you for absolutely everything!!

Wedding of Paul and Julie Ann

To: Elena and Yury

What can we say to describe just how very very happy we are with our wedding photos!

Your service from the beginning has been impeccable - all of your help with the design of the timing of the day. Getting to know you with the engagement photo shoot, you getting to know our preferences during the engagement viewing...

On the day... so relaxed, so friendly, we did not even notice you being there, yet, you captured so much of the day that we did not see & so many details that even we didn't know were there. As for the posed photographs - amazing - both your directions + experience shone through!

We could not be happier with the results - as well as the experience on the day. You have exceeded all expectations - we will definitely recommend you.

Thank again - Paul + Julie Ann!

Thank you so, so, so much for EVERYTHING! We couldn't be happier with the photos, you managed to not capture Faye's wonky face and caught impromptu high five! What more could we want?

On the day you made us feel comfortable and reassured, we couldn't have asked for better photographers. We truly felt that you understood and what we wanted from day one.
Thank you again a million times.

Wedding of James and George

To Yury and Elena

Thank you so much for the amazing job you've done with our wedding photos. We enjoyed the time we've spent with you, both on the pre-wedding shoot and the day itself. You do an amazing job of finding the right angles & creating a relaxed atmosphere. We felt very comfortable, which I(James) personally find difficult, as I am naturally not photogenic, However, I think the photos speak for themselves, you've done a tremendous job.
We will have beautiful memories of the day for the rest of our lives from the photos & slideshows you've prepared for us. Our family and friends have said how much they enjoyed looking at the photos on the website and they've complemented us on the quality of the photos.
We are so pleased with how things have turned out, we will remember the day for the rest of our lives, thank you for your hard work.

Thank you so much for capturing our special day so vividly and professionally. The visual memories that we now have can be shared with our families and friends in the UK and Peru. No doubt they will be equally thrilled with the expert way you have told the story of our wedding. We have a lovely permanent record of the emotions and episodes of 12th December 2010 and we can always look back at that day for the rest of our lives.

You made our venue look exclusive and all our guests were impressed with your organisation on the day. Truly, thank you for our wonderful photographs.

Best regards,

Elena,

I'm not sure I can truly express how wonderfully you captured the happiness and fun of our day. Everyone we speak to comments on how hard you both worked for the entire day - always there in the background capturing all the special moments which will help us to remember our wedding forever.

It was reassuring for us to know that you both had everything under control - you knew the venues, the schedule and you helped the day to run smoothly.

And now we have our photos and slide-show. They are all absolutely wonderful and I'm proud to show all my friends and family. We would both recommend you to others.

Many thanks again for all the hard work,

from Ali + Mike
