    Amazing! Really Cares About His Couples!

    Oleg was amazing to work with! He puts so much care into his craft and really cares about his couples. When my fiance and I met him to interview him, he focused more on learning about our love story rather than selling his services. We knew right away that he's a good guy to work with, and he never failed to meet our expectations. We used him for our engagement shoot, our wedding, as well as our post-wedding shoot. Thank you so much Oleg for making our wedding experience fantastic!

    May 28, 2021 Wedding

    From beginning to end Oleg (Love Photos) was amazing to work with. Oleg was there every step of the way, answering all of our inquiries, making planning flawless. He was very accommodating, even after we had to re-plan our whole wedding day in under a month. The day of the wedding it was reassuring having a great photographer (Oleg) that guided us through some shots. We couldn’t have been happier with our decision, especially after we received the final photos which look amazing. We highly recommend Love Photos to anyone for capturing your special day or any special occasion.

    Thank you so much Jessica, it was a pleasure photographing your wedding and I’m glad I could help with the planning! Thank you again!

    We love LovePhotos

    We could not have found a better photographer for our pandemic wedding. We are so lucky that we were able to book Oleg on such short notice. We were wowed by his portfolio and just knew that his photo and video style would be perfect for our forest wedding.

    It was a delight working with Oleg on our big day. He was very organized, friendly, and was really great about snapping shots of the little details. We had a blast taking shots of just the two of us after the ceremony. We would be walking in the woods and then he would suddenly get an idea for a unique shot utilizing the landscape. He was very accommodating to capture as much of the excitement as possible so that we could share photos and video of the day with our loved ones that could not attend.

    After our wedding, we were impressed with how quickly Oleg provided the finished product. And wow! The photos were stunning, and the highlight reel is a tear-jerker for anyone who watches it. It is so hard narrowing down our favourite photos.

    Oleg did a magnificent job capturing our special day, and we would recommend Love Photos in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding.

    Thank you so much Jake, it was an absolute pleasure to be a. apart of your wedding day and to photograph and film your wedding day. Thank you so much for choosing us!

    Fast, efficient and quality production!

    We decided not too long before our big day that we wanted to capture our short 20 minute ceremony and share it with those who couldn’t attended. Oleg and Love Photos & Films was quick to respond and communicate throughout, he went above and beyond on the day to capture our day with multiple camera angles and presented us with a high quality keep sake to share in just a few days!! I would highly recommend them. Thanks again!

    Look no further!

    Oleg at Love Photos & Films absolutely blew us away. If you're looking for a photographer/videographer, trust me when I say you need look no further! It was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our wedding day - his ability to capture candid, authentic moments is unparalleled. We weren't sure we wanted to fit videography into the budget, but we soon realized it was because we hadn't seen wedding films of this quality anywhere else, and so hadn't thought it worth it before we saw his work. Oleg will now be our go-to photographer & videographer for any milestones we want to commemorate! We really can't thank you enough.

    Love Photos & Films's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words Heidi! We had a blast capturing these once in a life time moments for you and are thrilled that you love the final products!

    Highlight Video

    After our wedding moved last minute from BC to Ontario, Oleg helped capture our day through a beautiful highlight video that he got to us very quickly knowing how many people were joining us remotely which meant so much to us!

    Love Photos & Films's reply:

    Thank you so much Samantha! I had a blast filming your wedding and am so glad to hear that everyone enjoyed the highlight film and ceremony edit!

    We LOVE Love Photos!

    Oleg did such an amazing job, my husband and I knew right away when we met him he would be perfect for the job. Not only is he professional, talented and provided a wide variety of photos for our engagement shoot and wedding (for amazing value). Oleg as an individual is a kind, genuine and really cares about capturing who you are and making sure you’re comfortable along the way. My husband and I definitely appreciated him and his services, we will definitely be going back Love Photos for future special occasions and would without hesitation recommend him for your wedding.

    Overall very positive!

    Right off the bat Oleg was super easy to work with! He met us at a halfway point between us to make it easier for us (he is from Oshawa and we are from Mississauga and we met at a Starbucks in Toronto where I was going to school), he was super responsive to my emails right from the very beginning and always was very professional and respectful! I had first contacted Oleg 2 years before our wedding and was not really serious about booking a photographer right away and had actually turned him down with a short email and then realized when I was seriously looking that my first contact had been the best and emailed him again! He was nothing but kind and professional even after I had initially turned his business down. I am so glad I went back to my first choice! One of the things that attracted us to Oleg's work was his manipulations of the environment in his photos to highlight the couple.....the colours were very warm and inviting and very candid and genuine looking, his pictures really take your breath away! In terms of pricing, Oleg was very easy to talk to about budget and really worked with us to pull parts of packages together into one package that gave us everything we wanted and stayed within our budget. My husband and I are both newbies to being behind a camera and we really do not enjoy cute things like posing for pictures (ha lame I know!) so the engagement shoot was really helpful in providing us an opportunity to know what would happen for the day of. Oleg was really patient with us and guided us, giving us suggestions on what to do and laughed with us when we totally failed at it! The result being the photos where we failed at being cute ended up being the cutest! In between the engagement shoot and the wedding, Oleg was the first of our vendors to provide suggestions (even ones that did not relate to photography) and support about logistics which was greatly appreciated by our novice wedding planner selves! The day of, besides the times where Oleg was directing us on some formal shots, I cannot recall him even being around, I hardly saw him! This was great because I have been to weddings where sometimes all you see is the photographer and .....no one wants that, they want to see the bride and groom! Oleg was very good at blending in and working his magic! He was very creative in how he worked; for example, during the night time/sunset photos we were outside in a strip mall (literally a parking lot) and he made it look beautiful! Towards the end of the night, even though we were behind schedule with some of the events (i.e. bouquet toss and cake cutting), Oleg was the most patient of our vendors and did not leave until we had all the shots we wanted. Photos arrived 30 days later as promised and were very easy to access and download. I know some photographers advertise a quick turn around for photos and that is fine if that's what you want, but Oleg was very upfront about his turn around and his prices so we knew what to expect right from the very beginning. And anyways it was 1000% worth the wait!! Overall, I enjoyed everything about our experience with Oleg, I would hire him again 100x and would recommend him to every Sue, Bob and Nancy that came my way! My girlfriend told me (in the planning stages of the wedding) that the way you choose your vendors is by that gut feeling you get when you meet them. She said you "just know" (I know very scientific but it's true!) and Oleg definitely gave us that feeling right off the bat. He made us feel calm and cool in a very exciting and anxious time and we are so glad we followed our gut feeling on this one! Thank you Oleg, to the moon and back!

    Fantastic!

    Oleg was great fun to have photograph our wedding, he made sure he got all the pictures we had requested as well as some candid photos. My parents had bought over some surprises from my family in the UK that couldn't make it and Oleg was quick to capture our reactions to them. He was very patient with our guests (we weren't always the most organised) Our wedding was 9th February and on 11th February he sent over 4 teaser photos that we had taken outside in the snow and they were the most beautiful pictures we have ever seen! I have already blown one up on a canvas! We couldn't praise Oleg highly enough! His photos will be the cherry on the top of a perfect day!
