Iryna and Richard, Hassop Hall
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.
Christine and Lee, Priest House Hotel
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!!
Julie Ann and Paul, Blackbrook House
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
Ashley and Steve, Shottle Hall
To Elena and Yury
Thank you so much for making our day so special. You put both Steve and I at ease, & were so good with our little girl & the rest of our guests.
The photographs you created are perfect, and we are so grateful for helping to make our day (and engagement!) complete. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know for any future shoots they may need!
Thank you so much for everything

Thank you so much you made our special day all the more special. From our first meeting right up to the end you were so friendly and made us relax, which is amazing for us as we don't do photos easily. Both our kids loved working with you both and all our guests commented on how lovely you both are.
