We looked at a few photographers to meet with and Yaneck stood out among all of them. We looked at his work and loved it. We read his reviews and saw that everyone loved him. He is very personable and fun to work with. Yaneck and Sasha make a great team. They are fun, yet professional. I felt very comfortable getting to know him in the engagement session and by the time the wedding came around they became friends. Yaneck was more than accomadating in our engagement session, (where we had multiple outfit changes). Our family and friends still rave about our save the date magnets, we highly recommend them as Yaneck does awesome design work. Some of our favorite engagement photos were different ideas that Yaneck suggested. As for the wedding day, Yaneck, Sasha, and Andrew were all on time and very personable with our guests. We couldn't be happier with how the day went. It was pretty chilly outside and he knew what shots to do, and was able to make it painless for the entire bridal party. Yaneck went out of his way to capture all the important moments of our day--he even stayed later into the night to accomplish this. Yaneck has a great vision and we can't wait to see the rest of our wedding pictures.

My fiancé and I were looking for a unique and talented photographer for our wedding day and we are very happy we picked Wasio Photography. Yaneck and Sasha were both very professional but also personable which made it easy to feel relaxed and at ease during the engagement shoot and on the wedding day. Yaneck has an eye for unique and interesting angles while shooting which gives the photos a natural elegance while at the same time seeming less framed and more spontaneous. Sasha is amazing at helping everyone feel excited and at ease (she is a master at off the cuff jokes), and her jovial personality causes people to smile while laughing instead of the normal fake smile. This truly is one of the best qualities in all the photos as the entire wedding party looks genuinely happy. Yaneck and Sasha made us feel like we were friends rather than clients and their passion for wedding photography is obvious. We recommend Wasio photography to everyone!
One of the best decisions my fiancé and I made was choosing Wasio Photography for our wedding day! Yaneck and Sasha took amazing photos and really helped make our day feel special right from the start! All four of us had so much fun during the engagement shoot and gave us a chance to get to know one another so on the wedding day we seemed like old friends. Both of them showed up at least an hour early on the wedding and blended in perfectly, taking photos while us girls were getting glamoured up. Yaneck occasionally suggests very subtly to people ways to stand and move but at the same time allows them to act natural, and all the while Sasha is cracking her jokes and making everyone feel right at home. The resulting photos look non-staged with naturally smiling people! This really is a hard combination to get! Our final pictures are everything I hoped for and more, and I look forward to pulling out my wedding album in future years and looking with great pride at our perfectly captured moments. We had so much fun with Yaneck and Sasha through the entire process, and would highly recommend Wasio Photography for all wedding couples!
I've known Yaneck for over a decade. I share his love for photography (but not his skills) so I have been following and supporting his photographic endeavors over the years. I had once, somewhat jokingly, told him that if I ever got married, I wanted him to take our photos.
I recommended him for my step-sister’s wedding and we were all very impressed with his work. A couple of years later after I got engaged, there was no doubt in my mind that I would ask Yaneck to photograph our wedding – not just for the beautiful photographs he takes, but also because of the passion he has for what he does, his technical skills, and the way he interacts with each of his clients with the utmost professionalism and genuine care about their big day.
To be honest, we (I) changed our wedding day from July 14, 2012 to July 7, 2012 solely because Yaneck was unavailable that weekend. And we also chose Yosemite Park, described to me as one of the most beautiful places in the world, because I wanted to use Yaneck’s skills to the max.
The photos came out beautiful and the photo shoot was creative and unique. We've had so many glowing compliments on our photos and I am thrilled that we had Yaneck photograph our big day. We kept the wedding small, but I wanted fabulous pictures to cherish for the rest of our lives.
I would recommend Wasio Photography, hands down, not just because Yaneck is a great friend, but also because both my husband and I are 110% thrilled with the output and the experience.
Thank you Wasio Photography, for providing us with wonderful memories that will stay with us forever!
We hired Yaneck of Wasio Photography for our June 2nd wedding because it was not only talent to take beautiful pictures that we were looking for in a photographer but also professionalism, personality and compassion. Yaneck has all of these qualities and more. We were impressed from the moment we met him by his artistry and his friendly demeanor. Your wedding is a wonderful yet stressful day and your photographer is going to be with you every step of the way. It is essential that you enjoy being with this person and that they don’t add to the stress but relieve it. That is why Yaneck is so amazing. Not only does he have a fantastic personality (someone you are more than happy to spend 12 hours with) but he cares just as much about your big day as you do. He works really hard to bring beauty to every moment and he does a wonderful job of making you look your best. If you want someone to capture the excitement, joy and beauty of you and your entire day, while keeping you in great spirits, Yaneck is your man. We are very happy that we decided to hire Wasio Photography and we would highly recommend him for your special day.
We hired Wasio Photography for our wedding on June 2nd, 2012. My wife and I interviewed several wedding photographers, as we felt pictures were one of the most important parts of our big day. We met with Yaneck the lead photographer at his home in Chicago and from the moment we met him, we were extremely comfortable with him. Yaneck started by building a relationship with Stephanie and I rather than treating us as potential new business.
We all know that its great if the photographer is a “nice” guy, but what is really important is the quality of the pictures! After having our photos taken at Salvage One in the West Loop, we knew we made the right decision for our big day. My wife Stephanie chose this great location due to it wonderful antiques and art. Stephanie has a great eye for art and one of her best talents is capturing great photography settings. Stephanie knew with the right photographer this would make for a great location. The photography made Stephanie and I look like movie stars and Yaneck’s talent with the background and setting was incredible. Yaneck’s professionalism and treating us as friends made the experience all the more enjoyable. After the session we all went for a glass of wine and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon.
As a result of Yaneck’s incredible work during our engagement session, both Stephanie and I were extremely excited about our wedding day and our pictures. Stephanie and I chose the Cuneo Gardens for our wedding location, mainly because of their beautiful grounds. Stephanie once again knew with the right photographer this would make for beautiful pictures. I must say Yaneck and his team did not disappoint, as our pictures are absolutely amazing. The pictures capture the beautiful grounds, but more importantly to me capture how beautiful my wife Stephanie looked on our special day. Yaneck and his team were also able to get some of the most candid moments of the wedding and our guests. Anytime, we want to relive that wonderful day, all we have to do is review our photos. . Once again, Yaneck’s professionalism and treating us as friends made the experience all the more enjoyable.
When you combine Yaneck’s personal attributes and his talent for photography, you have the perfect combination for a wedding photographer. I HIGHLY recommend Yaneck and Wasio photography.
We had the best photographer ever for our wedding! Yaneck was amazing to work with. Throughout the whole process, he was always willing to go the extra mile. From our engagement shoot to our wedding, we had so much fun shooting with him and had total confidence that our photos would be great. Yaneck loves what he does and it shows in his work. He's professional, but still fun and has an eye for what will make a beautiful photo. He was the best vendor at our wedding and has become a friend. We love all of our wedding pictures and have no idea how we will narrow them down.
When researching wedding photographers, Wasio Photography was the one site I kept returning to. For our intimate wedding, we chose Yaneck to be our photographer with little notice (or time to meet prior to), yet ended up with beautiful pieces of art, that we will treasure for life! He captured us as a couple well, with a mix of photo styles/locales, just as we requested. Working with Yaneck was a pleasure, as he is professional, yet has a charm that puts brides and grooms at ease. Despite an especially windy day, Yaneck never lost his enthusiasm, and put his creative vision to the test, using the elements, and his equipment, to his (and our) advantage. If you are looking for a talented photographer, who also happens to be a great person to have around, choose Wasio Photography!
Yaneck is an amazing photographer and a perfect professional at every session both for our engagement photos and our wedding day! His pictures are beautiful and truely captured all our special moments. He was polite and helpful to us and our family and so easy to work with. His suggestions for the best pictures, lighting, and backgrounds are always spot on. He also has a wonderful team to assist him. The most important part is that he was almost invisible, he never intruded on our wedding day, but carefully captured everyone enjoying themselves. I will continue to use Wasio Photography for all my photography needs in the future.
My Fiance and I looked at four photographers and Yaneck had the most to offer. We wanted a modern look to our photographs and really liked his unique styles. Yanek is very considerate of what the client wants, and has an amazing eye for creating special moments. We recently had our engagemnet session with Yanek which was very fun. He made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We have no regrets and are very happy with having Yaneck as our photographer. We look forward to our wedding day and having Yanek capture our special day.
I don't usually feel comfortable getting my pictures taken, but when we got our engagement photos taken with Wasio photography my fiancee (now my hubby) and I had so much fun! Our engagement photos were amazing, but our photos from our wedding were phenomenal. It was more than we could ever ask for. Yaneck is extremely professional (he really knows what he is doing)! He had a list of the photos we wanted to take with the family members and friends, he had everything under control and everything was very well organized. It's very important to connect with your photographer and we connected very nicely with Yaneck, which made it a phenomenal experience over all! Anybody who Yaneck photographs for is a very lucky couple!
I would have to say that i highly recommend Yaneck! He made my experience very memorable and he was very easy to work with. VERY talented! The final Product turned out more amazing then i every expected! He is very professional and reliable! I would hire WASIO Photography again without and questions.
My wife found Yaneck through much searching, and after reviewing his portfolio and comparing his work with other photographers in the area, there was little doubt that Yaneck could deliver. His services are very reasonably priced, and when it came time for the wedding, he knew exactly what he was doing. He captured so much of the event, from preparation to the end of the reception (heck, he was with us basically all day)! A few short weeks later, we got to see the photos. They look PHENOMENAL. He really knows his stuff. I hate to sound like an advertisement (then again, I guess that's what I'm doing by posting this), but if you pick WASIO Photography for your event, be it engagement, wedding, anniversary, *anything*, you will NOT be disappointed.
I wanted to make sure that my photographer was phenomenal for my wedding. When I found Yaneck (WASIO Photography) I knew he would be the perfect fit.
He's very friendly, professional, willing to work with a budget, and has amazing talent and imagination for photo scenes.
It was very fun working with Yaneck and we definitely got our money's worth!
I discovered Yaneck here on the Knot and I must say that it was the best find I could have ever made! Yaneck not only took amazing photos for our Engagement shoot he also did an amazing job on our August 2011 wedding! He has truly made it hard for my husband and I to pick one top favorite, we love them all! The best thing about Yaneck, aside from his phenomenal picture taking skills, is his personality and work effort. He is so easy to get along with and gives 110% in all that he does. He will be our go to photographer for events for years to come!
We had our engagement photos taken with Yaneck which by the way were INCREDIBLE!!! The engagement shoot was such a fun time, and the end result made all of our guests in awe. He is extremely professional in the sense of being reliable and it is easy to work with him because it's a comfortable laid back environment! Yaneck already made an incredible impression on my fiance and I during the engagement shoot with his professionalism and how beautiful all of our photos turned out. On our wedding day, it was such a privilege to have him as our photographer! When it came time to take our group pictures, that will not be something forgotten! Our whole group had such a fun time, I think we got six packs from all of the laughter going on. We recommend Wasio Photography to those who are so to speak photogenic, those who aren't (your opinions of your status of being not photogenic will be changed coming from personal experience); also Yaneck is extremely reliable and you will have an amazing time working with him! We are waiting with major anticipation to see our wedding photos!!
I would highly recommend Yaneck to anybody, he is a great and talented photographer. I love his work and is well done, couldn't ask for more. He has a great sense of humor and his easy to work with. The pictures are so awesome, that they
take away your breath. I just enjoyed every minute of his service. Very on time, responsible, and knew exactly what I was looking for. For sure I will hire wasio photography again. No doubt about it :-)
As my wife has already said work with Yaneck was a great experience. Yaneck is a great outgoing person, being photographed by him was great fun. i truly recommend him if you want to have all important moments to be captured. without a doubt we will take him to take pictures of our kido.
Yaneck was an absolute joy to work with for our engagement photos. He is incredibly talented and very professional. My fiance and I had so much fun working with him and our pictures turned out wonderfully! I would absolutely recommend Yaneck.
