We are so grateful and lucky to have chosen Danila and Lana as our photographers for our wedding. They were punctual, professional and we couldn’t have asked for more. Our wedding is our special day and your wedding will be a special day , Dani...
la and Lana will make it so much better. We had our wedding in Peddle Beach, Dumbo. After, we took pictures in the bar in West Elm with close friends and family. We then went to the carousal and went to Soho to take more pictures. It was a memorable experience because it was effortless on our part. Danila and Dana gave great instructions and we were able to follow easily. Our photos were delivered couple weeks later via google drive. As soon as when we received them, we could not not stop smiling. Our pictures are what reminds us about our special day. It is a special memory. All our friends and family praised the pictures, of how clear and beautiful and how well it captured everything on our special day. We also opted in the wedding video which we are so glad we did. It is a better way to show our wedding day, the video is fun and very thoughtful. Overall, you won’t regret it if you pick Danila and Lana as your wedding photographers.

Both us and our guest enjoyed their company on our wedding night. Thank you!

anila was very easy, the communication was always clear and punctual. We spent some time with him over the phone explaining our vision and importance of staying authentic and genuine.
Danila, Lana, and Lubov also provided help planning when a good time of day the ceremony should be since we wanted it to be close to sun set. With Central Park in New York City they gave us guidance on when the sun sets, to think about the building height, and to start earlier than we would think instinctually. They were right, we started the day and then the ceremony early and had time for more photos before going to our reception location. They were with us every step of the way.
We are grateful that we not only had amazing photographers, but they also made a video of our special moments. and Lubov was our wedding officiant. They were fun to work with, easy going, stylish, and knew how to coordinate a group of people as to avoid any chaos that would have occurred if people strayed on timelines. Lubov was an awesome officiant. It was fun and engaging for our whole group.
On the day of they were on-time, met with us in our place, got to know us better within a very short time. They walked with us in our neighborhood street for a First Look. They split up so that both the Bride and Groom had company leading up the ceremony. We had gentle direction, and the special moments all unfolded gracefully with their help.
The final pictures and videos we received from them in a quick turn around time and they all nicely depict the beautiful atmosphere we’ve had during our wedding day. We are absolutely satisfied customers and highly recommend working with them.

I found Danila online through another couple that had been married at our venue (The Foundry LIC). I loved the editorial and romantic style. I was a little hesitant because I love...
a good first-hand recommendation but couldn’t compare his photos to any other wedding photographer. During our initial conversation it was easy and flowed. He knew our venue (which could have tricky lighting) and got our vision. During our portrait shoot he was able to get to know my husband and I and we were able to get to know him. He made us both super comfortable in front of the camera. When we received our portrait session photos we were blown away..making us so excited for the capturing of the big day!
Danila and his assistant, Liobov, (who was LOVELY) were right on time, easy-going, and got pictures of everything without being pushy or overwhelming. They worked with our big families requests and many personalities. They captured the very best parts of the very best day.
So, THIS IS YOUR FIRST HAND RECOMMENDATION…if you like the style (timeless, classic, romantic, editorial, perfectly edited & candid) book then now. We are in love with our photos and EVERYONE has made comments about how stunning they are. We cannot thank them enough!

Needless to say, the process was seamless and the final photos were stunning and exceeded all of our expectations. Throughout it all, she was kind and professional, and provided guidance to ensure that we would have photos that captured the moments of the day and showcased everyone in the best possible way.

On your wedding day, you need to be flexible and find creative solutions to withstand temperamental weather conditions. Picking a venue with the typically gorgeous view of NYC for photos sounds like it you would have an easy background, but then it snows so much on a March day that it completely covers the view. I didn't even have time to panic, Danila was quick to propose a new background which ended up being even more perfect. Danila's photo assistant Katia was also amazing, she was able to help ensure that all the other important family, guests, bridal parties were taken.
Danila and Katia also took amazing photos of the small Russian Orthodox Church where we had our ceremony, not easy to follow or capture as there are many moving pieces throughout, and it is at least an hour long.

his page to my brother in law who is a very talented photographer and he was instantly drawn to Danilas talent and eye for photos.
I emailed him that night and he got back to me within 10 minutes! He is so fun and truly has such a passion and energy for life in general which I think is why he is an amazing photographer. We talked on the phone the next day for almost an hour all about my fiance and I and I knew he was caring and the perfect fit for us.
He was so easy to work with and supportive!
Him and his wife came to my airbnb to take photos and had so many fun and creative ideas for photos around the neighborhood! They were patient and made me feel comfortable right off the bat.
They were open to all my ideas but also shared their opinions and they are truly such a great team! I must also add that they were patient during one of the hottest days in Philly ever!!
If you are thinking about what type of person you would want to take photos and be around you basically all day on your wedding-look no further! Danila is funny, fun, honest, and has a true talent! He made everyone laugh all day but also blended into the background and grabs great candid shots.

hen a full-blown wedding, there was much to do with a very demanding Spanish mother! Selecting the 'right' photographer is so crucial to a wedding, as you rely on this 'stranger' to capture the moments that will be documented for years to come.
Meeting Danila, was an interview for both parties. All parties must feel comfortable with each other before committing to the event. Danila takes the time to get to know you and your partner and is genuinely interested in the 'love story'. This will play out in your pictures and video as it did with mine. Danila is not the traditional photographer that conforms to posing at every angel. He has the ability to capture real moments and expressions that evoke emotions when reviewing them days/ months/ years later. I cannot promote this guy enough!
