Tim and I got engaged (!!!) a few weeks ago and knew that we wanted to do a photoshoot in our apartment before we move on Jan 1. Tigran from Calypso LLC had been a lead photographer at my best friend's wedding and we loved his work, plus their reasonable prices. I reached out to... Read More Tigran and he responded immediately and booked us that same week, despite Tim's unconventional work schedule. Besides wanting to chronicle our first home together, we didn't know what we wanted. We had never done a photoshoot before, are not super creative people, and had no idea what to expect. Going into it with no expectations, we were BLOWN AWAY by Tigran's demeanor, creativity, and of course the final pictures. Tigran is so much fun to work with. He's super personable and clearly loves what he does. He has a million creative ideas and found so much inspiration from our home and by getting to know us as a couple. We ended up having a blast taking the photos. The finished products are beyond what I could have hoped for. They're beautiful, artistic, original, and really show who we are as a couple. We simply couldn't be happier and will definitely be booking Tigran and Calypso for our wedding. Thanks for everything Tigran!

Tigran with Calypso Digital is an unbelievable photographer. From the moment we met to discuss what we were looking for, he made us feel relaxed and conformable. We had no idea what we were doing or what to expect, but he just made things work for us. He explained everything so... Read More clearly he probably should have charged us for the consultation! During the engagement photo shoot it felt like we were just out for a stroll with a friend. We never imagined how fun it could be. He and his assistant Anastasiia responded in a timely manner via email throughout the entire process. They kept us updated, and helped create a timeline so we knew what to expect. She even created a cute blog for us to share with our friends and family using our engagement pictures. Tigran was non-intrusive during the wedding. He gave us enough space to live in the moment. He was absolutely professional. He was also able to adapt quickly after the ceremony to an unforeseen and excessive desire by everyone to take pictures with us in a location where he had not set up his gear. He made it work and we are so appreciative that he took the time to take pictures of every single guest although it wasn’t the initial plan. They are all expecting us to send them a copy! Finally, Tigran hand delivered our pictures. We are so thankful because UPS sucks. The images came in a gorgeous wooden box and he included a USB with tons of high quality images. We were just looking at them again last night and felt so emotional remembering the day. We love how natural everything looks, and the beautiful moments he captured of our guests that we did not get to see. If you are thinking about hiring a photographer, look no further. Tigran is the best in the area, we can guarantee it, plus you get to help a small business – it’s a win a win all around. Thank you so much again Tigran. We could not have made a better decision, you are amazing.

I had originally hired someone else but through the process felt like they didn't really care about my wedding and this was just another job for them which led me to look for another photographer. I was happy to find Tigran and his team to shoot our wedding. I think what... Read More stands out from Tigran and his team is not only the beautiful pictures that were delivered but their amazing energy. It was nice to see them really happy and excited about my day as much as I was. Even before the shoot Tigran was really responsive with emails and putting together an agenda for the day which helped a lot and not just for the picture schedule but the agenda helped direct the entire day for my other vendors as well. I decided to have a traditional Cambodian ceremony in the morning and then an American ceremony and reception in the evening. It was a crazy long day! Tigran was great at directing everyone and sooo patient! He has great ideas on what type of pictures to take and how to take them. From the morning ceremony we moved on to shoot some pictures getting ready meanwhile Alex and another photographer stayed with my husband while he and the groomsmen got ready. Having more than one photographer is so much better because they are able to capture so much more and it makes things run smoother. They were with us the entire day and night and our pictures turned out great! I highly recommend Calypso :)
