    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 Nova Photography's reply:

    Wow, so sorry to hear of your experience, Adrian!
    If we remember correctly, your wife was so happy with our work, that she had even offered up your condo in Cabarete for us to enjoy.

    Friends with personal phones - forbidding this would be impossible. We do recommend an ‘unplugged’ ceremony, which is what the officiant may have mentioned - but again, we would never comment on it to your guests or enforce it in any way.

    Your gorgeous images were ready at the promised 8 week mark.

    Our unique process, which was explained to you during our Discovery Call, requires us to connect in real time over video chat for the big amazing ‘Premiere.’ All our couples love that, it’s such an incredible experience.
    It’s too bad you missed out on it - since you were unable/unwilling to commit to an hour online with us, celebrating you.

    The first time we scheduled the Premiere with your wife Lavi, she couldn’t figure out how to connect the TV, and you were stuck in traffic.
    We had even ordered pizza & wings for you as a surprise.

    It took a while for both of you to agree to a new time, and we kept checking in with you.
    So to be clear, you didn’t wait for your images for 6 months, they were ready and waiting for you.

    Our whole team, including some of the staff at your wedding venue, agreed that you were THE most difficult groom to work with. You were dismissive, impatient and barely tolerant of pictures, even though it was so important to your bride.

    The mention of image quality and perceived rudeness - we can’t even reply to this, as it’s inconceivable to us and make no sense.
    In the nearly 10 years that we’ve photographed weddings on the island, we’ve only received the most loving, stellar reviews.

    You paid a $2500 shooting fee, and we ended up GIFTING you the images. If you feel ‘ripped off’ … well … what more can we say?
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Wishing you both the best,

    The Novas.

    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!

    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
