Oleg was so amazing and easy to work with through the whole day. He is a true professional. 10/10 would recommend to anyone for their wedding/event. We've only seen a sneak peak of the photos and I am already blown away. He takes amazing shots and is also very fun to work with! I never had to worry if any of the moments were being captured because he is always one step ahead. Thank you so much Oleg, you were just another great addition to our perfect day!!Sent on 09/07/2019
Love Photos & Films's reply:Thank you so much Kristie, I had a fantastic time photographing your wedding. Even though we hadn't met in person prior to the wedding, I felt like I've known you and Jeremy for a long time. Thank you again for the awesome review!

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!Sent on 08/11/2019

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!Sent on 13/02/2019

A complete Breeze
Oleg was a true breeze to work with. All of our ideas seemed to flow and led to some truly amazing pictures. If you are the creative type Oleg will work with you to make your dreams come true and not to worry for those less creative like myself Oleg will help scope out beautiful locations and poses. One of the things I liked best about working with Oleg was that he was willing to do anything to get the best shot and unfortunately because of that he almost fell into the pond a few times. I also loved how he captures the emotion in the moment and that everything isn't so "smile for the camera" or pose-like. I would 100% recommend Oleg for your next event without hesitation. He is an extremely caring and highly professional photographer that will make sure you have memories that will last a lifetime!Sent on 22/11/2018

The perfect day captured by Love Photos
My husband and I are so happy we chose Oleg of Love Photos for our wedding. I was seven months pregnant for our engagement pictures and I must say I absolutely love every one of them. Our wedding was small and intimate at Nestleton Waters Inn 6 weeks after our daughter was born and we provided Oleg with little direction aside "from capture our day". The photos we received were gorgeous, every single one. Our memories are forever found in the pictures Oleg took and we know we made the right decision hiring Love Photos.Sent on 21/11/2018
