The worst and most unfriendly experience dealing with these two!

For one, after waiting 6 months to receive pictures, the quality of the photos were terrible for the amount of money we paid for them. Secondly, they forbid any of our family and friends to take videos or photos with there own personal phones! Third, they were rude to me, and some of out guests at our own wedding!!!
Do yourselves a favour and find some other photographer to with with. These people actually were the worst part of my wife and I special day! Plus for the amount of money we paid them, I feel completely ripped off!!!!

Katya & Rob!! AHHH.. I don't even know where to start.. We made the BEST decision of our lives ( and I'm not even kidding) From start to finish they were more than we ever expected.. When we started to plan our dream wedding I knew there were going to be the ONES! Katya and Rob are not only photographers, they have a special kindness in them, they are truly genuinely good people, they should definitely be wedding therapists ( I mean, brides can get really overwhelmed.. nervous .. SCARED.. you name it! As soon as they started the day their kind words, tranquility, compassion, made all the fear and nervousness go away. I remember the day of our wedding we had a little drizzle ( a brides worse nightmare ) and I looked at Katya & Rob's face and saw SMILES as they said "Make memories, your beautiful". Words cannot describe how THANKFULL Marcos and I are.. we will forever be grateful and will never forget them! They both have a "gift", when we received our pictures we were AMAZED.. we knew that their work would impress us but we were BLOWN AWAY! our guests LOVED them, they were part of the family =) Picking and choosing the best picture? We couldn't!! ALL of them are truly my favorite. They captured emotion and feelings (that's talent)- My wedding looked straight off a magazine! Thank you is all I have to say.. We love you guys, and cannot wait to go back to Punta Cana and do our 1 year anniversary session! Thank you again - My ABSOLUTE DREAM come true! Kelly& Marcos

Katya & Rob are AMAZING! We have no words to express how much we love our incredibly beautiful wedding photos! We really are at a loss. Even the most beautiful words would fall short of truly expressing our utter delight and elation as we looked through our full album. Katya & Rob captured every beautiful moment of our wedding day and we can't thank them enough for preserving these precious memories for us! The photos are breathtakingly beautiful and their passion for what they do just jumps off of the screen. It is so obvious that they love what they do and we want to thank them both for pouring their hearts and souls into this project. Having them there for our big day was such a joy (they are truly freaking AWESOME people) and the two of them have made such an impact on us. We will forever be grateful to them for giving us so much of themselves. They have surpassed every expectation we could have imagined and we could not be more thrilled with the outcome!! Choosing a favorite photo is absolutely impossible. Even choosing a few favorites is impossible. I don't know how we will decide which images to print and showcase in our home (but what a wonderful problem to have!!!) Thank you Katya & Rob, from the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU for capturing the beauty and the love and the flurry of emotions on our special day. We will treasure these precious photographs (and you) for the rest of our lives.

AMAZING. We got married this past February in Punta Cana- Bavaro. Our entire experience working with Katya & Rob has been incredible. Upon meeting via email, our wedding, and the rock the dress photoshoot... we wish we could do it all again! They made us feel SO special and loved. The quality of the images are breath taking! It's like we can re live every moment with our photographs. We also received a slideshow of some highlighted photos which was the sweetest surprise! THANK YOU Katya Nova Photography for making our wedding vision come to life. Thank you for being apart of our journey. We will cherish our experience and photographs FOREVER.

Booking Katya and Rob for our Punta Cana wedding was one of the best decisions we made! The pictures they took were absolutely beautiful and dynamic and working with them was a joy. They are not just photographers, they are wedding therapists! We got some rain on our wedding which can be a bride's worst nightmare, but every time it started raining I would look at Katya and Rob's smiling faces and Katya would just say "we're making memories!". Our guests also absolutely loved them! They have a way of making everyone feel comfortable and special. Even though I had high expectation for our pictures, when we received them we were still blown away. Thanks Katya and Rob! We hope to see you next time we're in DR!

If I could give 100 Stars I would ! My husband and I were beyond blessed to have Katya and Rob be part of the most important day of our lives on our Wedding Day. They captured such breathtaking images that will live on forever. I really am in awe of the memory they captured on our magical day. They have such amazing talent and were so helpful on the stressful behind the scenes moment. Katya even washed some champagne glasses for the pic with my bridesmaids and I ! Talk about Dedication! When doing my research for the wedding, I made sure I booked them first before even the Venue. Their work is so amazing! . Trust me , you won't regret booking them! I usually am so shy and awkward as well as my Hubby. I am so grateful that Katya gavem us wondeful directions and we were able to relax and soak it all in. They are just an amazing team, such wonderful loving souls --- I am so in love with how the wedding album will look like. She literally made us look straight off the page of a wedding magazine ! They truly are the BEST in the game ! Book them you will not regret it !

Book them right now and look no further. They are SO worth it.
Katya and Rob not only took the most amazing wedding photos ever, but their presence at our wedding just made it that much better. They truly were like part of the family, and they captured moments. They asked the right questions beforehand, and they really listened to find out what meant the most to us on our wedding day. Then somehow they got every single memory and emotion captured in a beautiful way.
I had some crazy ideas for what I wanted, and they involved horses and acro yoga, and rather than getting nervous about any of it, they were all in! We tried all of it, and my wedding photo dreams came true. If you aren't getting married in the DR, I think you should, just so that Katya and Rob can shoot your wedding :D

Katya is AMAZING. She has a gift - not just with the camera, but with making you and your significant other feel totally comfortable behind the camera. Katya captured my fiance and I's love for each other perfectly and created beautiful memories of our engagement that we will cherish forever. My advice is to ABSOLUTELY book Katya to take your photos.

Katya and Rob are amazing. I had them as my photographers in November 2016 at the Paradisus Palma Real. I confirmed Katya for my wedding as soon as i booked my date .. almost 1.5 years in advance. I am so glad I did .. I had an on-resort wedding and it was worth the vendor fee x 100. I actually booked 3 days with Katya, Rob and Little Zion which was well worth the money .. I would have done that even if there was no vendor fee. It allowed us to do FOUR separate shoots with Katya and Rob for the same price as a one day vendor fee. Katya and Rob came to our white party BBQ for no added costs to meet our guests and take some pictures of us. Amazing!!

Aside from my wedding day, I did a boudoir and rock the dress shoot with Katya. I highly recommend both. Katya made me feel super comfortable for my boudoir shoot 2 days before the wedding and I honestly loved every picture! She edited these pictures in ONE DAY and Rob presented them on an iPad to my husband on the morning of the wedding day as my gift to him. SO worth the money. and honestly, more of a gift for me than him :).

On the wedding day, Katya and Rob were more than photographers - they decided and held us to our timelines and coordinated our FIRST LOOK .. one of my favorite memories from the day. Our bridal parties LOVED them and talk about booking them for their own weddings. They even had the resort staff bring us shots (twice) during pictures with our bridal parties to help loosen us up. The photos they got during the reception (thanks rob!!) were amazing and looking at the photos after the wedding with my family is one of my favorite wedding-related memories.

We did our rock the dress shoot the morning (6 AM) after the wedding which was so much fun and the pictures are amazing .. I do wish I did my hair and that we pregamed a little before the pics (we had a bottle of champagne, but i wish we had 2!).

Do not hesitate booking Katya .. It was the best money we spent on our wedding!

What can I say that hasn't already been said. Katya Nova Photography is nothing less than kind, warm, and OH SO AMAZING! . When we decided on an intimate wedding in the Dominican Republic I knew I would have trouble locating a photographer. Our hotel suggested their on site vendor, but I knew they were not the one. I then Googled DR photographers and Katya's name popped up. Instantly it was love at first sight!! I just had to have them photograph my wedding! I reached out to Katya right away and although her and Rob were not available on my date, her associate Tamara, was. If you browse Katya's blog you just know this team has great talent and energy!! Katya was very prompt when responding to any questions I had regarding the photography of the wedding. She even took things one step forward and sent you information on having a destination wedding and includes her experience as well! A great read for the brides who have never been to the DR. Now about the day I met Tamara. She is everything I asked for and more! I felt comfortable instantly and knew I was in great hands. She talks to you while shooting in a way that helps you calm your nerves. She's so fun and energetic!! Loved every second. The topper to our experience was when we received our pictures. Absolutely stunning!! I still can't stop looking at our pictures. I can't wait to return for our anniversary so we can have another photo shoot!!! #katyanovaphotographyforthewin :)
