I'm going to preface this review with the fact that I'm a photographer, and I know what to look for in a good wedding photographer (and what to look for in a bad one.)
This photographer is the real deal. He's only using top-tier equipment. He brought a second shooter. He was super-flexible on terms. That would mean nothing if the photos were an issue, but they weren't. His photography was creative and technically excellent. His low-light shots were very good, an area in which most photographers struggle to create good shots. He was on time and reliable.
He was polite, unobtrusive, and didn't make the day about himself - exactly what a wedding photographer should do. He was receptive to my direction for a few shots I wanted to take, so I didn't have to contend with an ego, which was nice.
I would highly recommend Ilya to any couple looking for a great wedding photographer.

Went out with a fellow videographer (www.Midav.com) and shot a little bit of scenery with my dSLR as well as stabalized Drone with a GoPro Hero 4. A little bit of an unusual editing from me but it fits the scene :)
I have done quite a few senior photo sessions but this is the first time I posted it on my blog. Went out with Peter to for a senior photoshoot on Veterans Day near his house in Westfield. Then we went up to the mountains and did a little shooting there. Thay call the place “The comcast Towers” since they’re very close to where we were. As you can see, the weather was amazing as well as the places we went to. We just had enough time to shoot a little during the golden hour before the sunset. Enjoy!
Western MA Apple Orchard Engagement Photography: Hey everyone! It’s been a month since I posted something so here’s an engagement session I did this past weekend. So far, they were my favorite engagement couple I photographed this year. They are not only good looking, but the natural love they have for each other made my work that much easier! First, we strolled around downtown Westfield a bit, then headed to the Apple Orchard in Granby, MA. Weather couldn’t have cooperated any better, it was the most perfect fall evening! These wear all photographed with a newly acquired Nikon 58mm f/1.4G lens (except for the last image). I must say I have finally found my favorite prime lens of all time. I’d say 90% of this session was photographed with a 58mm f/1.4G wide open at f/1.4. When paired with a 28mm f/1.8G, you have a combo that you can live with :) Can’t wait to share the photos with you! Enjoy this Western MA Apple Orchard Engagement Photography below!
West Hartford Wedding Photography: Another beautiful wedding of this month; Chris & Amy! The day couldn’t have been any better for a September wedding, the temps were perfect, and the bridal party was as alive as ever! I was also happy that Chris and Amy set aside some time for photos after the ceremony, and we spent about 40 minutes shooting in the woods of Wolcott park! The ceremony took place at the Church of Saint Birgit, followed by the reception in the beautiful Angelo’s on main rock ledge, on the gorgeous grounds of the Rockledge Country Club golf course! Blessings to the newlyweds! Enjoy!
