No words! Best investment by a mile!
We're so thrilled we found Larisa. Planning an elopement from the UK it was hard to find a vendor without meeting in person but as soon we spoke on the phone we knew Larisa was the one - she totally embraced our plans for the day whilst providing invaluable input and guidance regarding locations, timing, lighting etc without being pushy!
And as for the images - wow. I can't believe i know the couple in the pictures ha! For two people who hate being in-front of a camera (and were very apprehensive) she made it feel effortless and captured so many natural, candid moments which make the pictures reflect our relationship perfectly. Even the more 'posed' ones didn't feel awkward. A lot of the time we didn't notice she was there as we explored different neighbourhoods after the ceremony.
Larisa kept up an amazing energy ALL DAY, and her excitement is infectious when we would turn a corner into a different street and she saw a perfect photo opportunity. She has such a great eye! The pictures 100% exceed our expectations and friends back home commented that they feel like something from a wedding editorial. We would have no hesitation recommending Larisa to anyone, she was the best investment we made for our elopement.

We have received our photos and could not be any happier with them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing some of the most precious moments of our lives.
We were on our way to a Saturday morning run and stopped by the post office to pick up a parcel - neither of us had any idea what it would be. That morning we both ran very fast so we could get home and look through our beautifully presented parcel properly. The presentation box, beautifully printed photographs, personalised memory stick and your thank you note were amazing and just added to the whole experience for us.
The slideshow had us in tears, re-living all of the amazing memories for our perfect day which you captured with such ease.
Thank you so much for putting in all the extra effort, arriving early out of the goodness of your heart (!) and staying late at a moments notice. We are so grateful and so pleased you were the one to capture our day.
You made everyone feel at ease, I think it is safe to say if any of our friends got married in NYC too they will be giving you a call.

Larisa is incredible. If she's available for your date, look no further. Her work is simply outstanding and her go-with-the-flow attitude makes her the ultimate wedding photographer. She is detailed oriented, professional, and passionate. She met with me prior to the wedding to scout the venue and Highline, which was so enjoyable because she's easy to talk too. I was stressing out about wedding planning and talking to her was like talking to a friend.
On wedding day, Larisa arrived early. She even brought with her a NY Times to capture the date with our wedding rings. I think it was the hottest day of the summer (Aug 12.) and she didn't complain one bit about walking the Highline with us in the heat. Anything we asked for she captured. The delivered prints arrived just as she'd described them. They were perfect. It felt like I was reliving the magical day. I'd recommend Larisa to anybody! She's the best out there.

I was fortunate enough to have Larisa capture my city hall wedding in NYC, where we did an engagement style shoot afterwards for a few hours at various locations downtown. My wife and I couldn’t have been more pleased with everything from how professional Larisa was to seeing the final product. Even though Larisa was a single shooter for my event, she was able to command a large group of 25 friends and family to capture various portrait and group shots in a quick manner so that we could maximize our time, but never sacrificing quality or getting the perfect shot. Unlike many photographers out there, she never stopped taking photos and captured many candid moments that were among our favorite shots out of everything.
Her editing style has a softer touch, which makes for perfect portrait and scenery shots and the tones are on the muted end of the scale as well which gives a very artistic vibe to the photo.
I can’t recommend Larisa enough for anyone who wants to have every moment of their special day to be captured in a beautiful and artistic manner.

We would like to say huge thanks to you, Larisa, for our stunning pictures. We’ve been planning our wedding in New York for a long time and it was really important for us to find not only a professional photographer, but the person who would capture our emotions, decorations and surroundings exactly as we imagined in our dreams. You made us feel so relaxed and natural , so even my husband, who absolutely hates being in front of the camera, did like the way you interacted with us and found that he actually can be very photogenic without any special efforts :)
You found so many beautiful places that I’d have never even noticed, and it was such a huge help to have your confidence and creative ideas. We’ve got fantastic result! You perfectly captured the essense and spirit of our wedding day and we are truthfully grateful to you for being a precious part of our small but very momentous ceremony. I would recommend you to everyone who is getting married in New York and especially to those who loves New York the way you do. You feel and capture special magic of this city and your job will definitely exceed client's expectations. Thank you, Larisa!

Larisa photographed our cold & snowy December wedding in Central Park and the photos came out every bit the bright winter wonderland we dreamed of. She was fun to work with and every shot she staged us in was flattering and looked amazing. Our families are still talking about the photos! Cannot recommend her enough. All the photos she has up on social media and her website are extremely representative of her excellent work, though I think she was at her best for our shoot ;)

You've found your photographer! Stop looking and opt to work with Larisa now! We just got our photos back and they are SO wonderful. When I first saw Larisa's website, I loved how magical and dreamy her photos are and she really delivered that for us too. I am thrilled we chose her. It was important to capture what our wedding day felt like, more than it was to pose for a lot of portraits. With Larisa, we were able to get both. In the lead up to the wedding day, she was caring and flexible in ways that I didn't find in among other wedding vendors. And on the wedding day, she was a calming presence, which I so appreciated!
