Ilia recently photographed my wedding. Not to my surprise, many people asked me after having seen the photos "how many photographers did you have!?" because he was EVERYWHERE and never missed a moment. The photos were beautiful too.Sent on 26/07/2016
Also, Ilia was so responsive by phone and email at every moment leading up to the wedding. He even wrote us a list of "tips for the day", which in the end turned out to be really helpful.
I've learned that while planning for a wedding, you will find some vendors that will only do what is written in their job description, which can make the whole process stressful. Other vendors are willing to go above and beyond and act as advisors along the way. Thankfully for us, Ilia was one of those people. I would recommend Ilia to anyone who is looking for spontaneous and moment capturing pictures for their special day.

Ilia was very helpful and flexible. Because of the weather we had to change the date and location many times, however, he was extremely passionate and professional. He had lots of beautiful places in mind and he was full of fresh ideas. He uses professional equipment and his pictures are high quality. We highly recommend Ilia for anyone who is looking to get lovely pictures for their engagement or wedding.Sent on 07/06/2017

My sister found Ilia's photos online and I'm so happy she did! We had such a fantastic experience with Ilia, right from the start when we asked about his availability for our wedding date. Ilia was prompt and enthusiastic in his communication and was extremely attentive before, during and after the wedding. Ilia was responsive to our questions and accommodated our unusual requests - like to have some pictures with our cat ? ! We loved both the engagement photos and the wedding photos, which were sensitive and captured the mood and atmosphere of our special day so well. Ilia was extremely professional and we have been so delighted by his work! We would highly recommend Ilia to photograph your wedding or any special event!Sent on 14/09/2016

I love capturing natural and real moments during a wedding day. It is always the candid shots that excite us the most and carry the long-lasting memories. At the same time, I try to be unnoticeable. I want everyone to feel comfortable and not to stress out about being photographed. During any situation that requires posing, I will make sure to give professional guidance to make the shot look natural.
