    "I had an amazing experience with Yanina! She is incredibly warm and lovely, which made me so much more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Yanina is an absolute professional. I appreciate her thoroughness and attention to detail. Her eye and her talent came highly recommended,

and I'm joining the chorus of voices to say--work with her!"

  "Had an excellent experience with Yanina. Super talented. Thank you!"

- Madusha Warusavithana

"I had an absolutely amazing experience with Yanina! She did the photos for both my engagement and wedding day and I can’t even express how happy I am with them. She is such a warm and friendly person, she’s someone you feel like you have known your whole life, and with that person following you around all day for your wedding trust me it’s super important to feel comfortable. Besides being extremely friendly she is just as professional, having multiple meetings and even coming to our venue before our wedding to make sure she had every detail of what we wanted for that day. And her work speaks for itself, the photos were breathtaking and captured everything we wanted in our wedding day. She also made us beautiful photo albums, multiple enlarged prints and even fun extras like key chains and a keepsake box! I highly recommend her!!"

- Samantha Lynn

Our wedding photos are indelibly (and digitally) etched memories that we will cherish and share

for a lifetime. Your vision and knack (I think I'm talking about your talent) is obvious in each shot. Merri and I couldn't be more thrilled with the resulting catalog of posed and candid color and B&W images. So happy we were lucky to discover you right here in our own backyard on Long Island! We wish you all the success you have earned and will continue to achieve.  Yanina . . . we're ready for our closeup!"
