    Destination Wedding

    I am a bride that was coming up from the US. I booked all of my vendors by having conference calls. The first time I spoke with Svetlana I knew she was the one I wanted to photograph my wedding. Her personality was amazing and the connection I had with her...it was like I knew her forever. Svetlana answered all of my questions professionally and was fast at responding to any emails I had sent her.
    I took a special trip out there a month before the wedding to see the location and to try to meet all of my vendors. Svetlana was very flexible with her schedule and made time to meet me at the venue/restaurant. She walked around the area with me and showed me where we could take pictures. My wedding was held during the Calgary Stampede so she was open about the possibility of spectators being in my pictures.
    On my wedding day, Svetlana quickly adjusted plans to accommodate some still photos at the hotel I was getting ready at (not part of the original plan). She was at the venue when I got there and from the minute I got out of the limo, Svetlana (and Sergi) were there to capture every moment. The pictures are outstanding! The love we have for each other shines through! I have no complaints about any of the pictures!
    Svetlana and Sergi turned the pics around to me rather quickly. Since I live in the US, I decided to only take the digital pics which is the only thing I would change. I should have spent the money to have an album put together for me. There are so many wonderful pictures and memories captured that I don't even know where to begin with printing them out or making an album myself.
    Thank you for such an amazing day! I wouldn't have wanted it any other way!!

    Svetlana Yanova Photography's reply:

    Hi Angela! I was so happy to photograph you and Mike, you're an incredible couple and I can see your love for each other in every image. And we can still create an album for you and ship it to you both, no problem! :) Let me know! :) XO

    From the moment I walked in the studio my mind was at ease with Svetlana - she made me feel beautiful and at ease immediately. The shoot was fun and went by so quickly because i was actually enjoying it!! The photos turned out better than I could have imagined - I have received glowing reviews on them. Svetlana is a must for your next event.

    Was the absolute best!

    Svetlana was incredible and worked so hard to not only capture our day, but really the essence of what we love about each other as well. She is professional, personable, extremely accommodating and took incredible images. There are also some really great natural shots of our friends and family too; which they all loved!

    She was such a great energy to have at the wedding and made sure we had the best day possible. We would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to hire a photographer for a wedding or any other event. We love her!

    Svetlana Yanova Photography's reply:

    Thank you SO much Brittney!! You made my day :) I'm so happy you loved the experience and the photos :) Loved photographing you two! Big hugs!

    "Oh my goodness, you're gorgeous" is something I heard said a lot on the day of our session, even before a stitch of makeup was applied. Svetlana was so excited about my shoot, it was very contagious, and I had so much fun! Svetlana gave me lots of direction, showed me the difference between what positions did in different photos and cheered me on. It was so much fun! Thank you beautiful lady. - Amber

    Svetlana Yanova and her team were absolutely amazing from start to finish. All of our pictures are spectacular and every time we look at them, it takes us back to our special day. She was very creative in the delivery and consistently captured every moment desired for our wedding. The service we received was on point and we felt very comfortable with Svetlana. We would definitely recommend her photography to friends and family going forward. Thank you Svetlana for making our wedding day much more memorable.

    Best gift I have ever given my parents was a family session with Svetlana. She captured each individual perfectly, I can still look at those photographs and see our genuine laughter. I find great photography takes you places, and hers takes me right back in time.
    When I got engaged last autumn it wasn't even a question of who I wanted to hire as our photographer. Our engagement photos were so much more than I had wanted. I am

    Svetlana Yanova was an amazing person to work with. From our first conversation on the phone to the last email I have enjoyed every interaction with her. Being from a different city than the one that I got married in, I was nervous at first to trust someone whom I'd have little contact with. However, on our wedding day Svetlana put all my worries aside.

    Svetlana was with us for most of the day, taking pictures before the ceremony, during, and for part of the reception. She got along famously with everyone she met include the whole bridal party. Because of this, everyone felt at ease around her and she was able to take some amazingly candid shots. She also has an incredible talent for detecting beautiful backdrops with the perfect lighting. After the wedding all of our photos were delivered in a timely manner and I couldn't be more pleased with them.

    In all, Svetlana is an incredibly professional, kind, passionate, and talented individual. Her photography is highly recommended and I would certainly Svetlana again.

    Svetlana did the photos for my wedding, and she hit the mark perfectly. Her style is classic and romantic, and was a perfect fit for our wedding at Heritage Park! She is wonderful, professional, and keeps the day happy and bright despite whatever stress and other emotions you feel throughout the day. Svetlana is a very kind soul, and her compassion for others comes through her photography. If you're looking for soft and romantic photos that will last a lifetime, go with Svetlana!

    We had to fiddle with the budget in order to afford her services, but the two things you don't want to cheap out on for a wedding is food and photography. Those are the two elements you'll remember forever. Svetlana was very flexible and worked with us to make a photography package that fit just right for us. She was also flexible when it came time to paying her fees, and that flexibility was invaluable throughout the wedding planning process. We are overjoyed with the photo results and our wedding album that Svetlana created. Everything was beautiful and perfect!

    So happy you and Ben love your wedding images!! It was a pleasure to photograph you two!

    I wouldn't trust anyone other than Svetlana to do my wedding photos. She has an amazing eye and great creativity. She has taken my family photos, my grad photos and my wedding photos. I would recommend Svetlana to anyone.

    We first hired Svetlana for our engagement photos. You know how we ladies all talk to ourselves...in our heads. that we aren't beautiful enough or too this or that.

    Well, after seeing the photos Svetlana took, I could not even try those lies on myself. I could not deny that I looked absolutely beautiful, gorgeous, amazing, sexy... I was proud to be the one in the photos and say, that's me! [My husband of course didn't have anything to improve upon - he's handsome already ;)]

    Svetlana perfectly and beautifully captured our excitement of getting engaged, the unspoken feelings of love and appreciation my soon to be husband had for each other, thinking about spending our lives taking care of each other. It was all in our photos.

    So hiring Svetlana Yanova Photography to do our wedding was of course the right choice. There's no compromising with the photos of your wedding day - they are FOREVER. And once again, Svetlana, so beautifully, passionately, in her unique way immortalized us as King and Queen of our new life together, presented us to the world in a regal way, even more stunningly, gorgeously, and beautifully as ever.

    Thank you - THANK YOU Svetlana. Your own beauty reflects what you are able to see in all of us.

    If I ever have children, to also introduce to the world, we will call you again, that's for sure.

    Love You!

    Lisa (and Christian) Beaulieu
