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.

Another beautiful wedding of Chris & Amy, from West Hartford, CT. 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!
It’s been busy last few weeks, and the lovely weddings keep on coming! This particular wedding was lots of fun, taking place at the Red Barn at Hampshire College, in MA. As I was heading to the location, it started pouring buckets, sadly the planned ceremony outdoors under the oak tree had to be relocated to be indoors but turned out just as perfect, the windowed walls of the barn offered gorgeous views of the hue covered mountains, and after the ceremony, right before a cozy dinner, we were able to get some amazing shots outside right after the rain!! Enjoy the post and best wishes to the Newlyweds!
Had a blast shooting this laid back country themed wedding in Belchertown Mass. Loved the energy and the fun from the bridal party and the guests throughout the evening…nothing was going to stop them from having a good time, and that is exactly what the wedding turned out to be! We were blessed with an amazing weather as well as some rain after the ceremony which cleared out shortly, turning into a beautiful evening. Enjoy some snippets of Brian & Jesse’s day!
Had the pleasure of photographing the baptism of little princess Effie Georgia at the gorgeous Spyridon Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Worcester, MA. There’s nothing more precious than seeing a little child be brought to church to be blessed! The family was great, very cooperative and the baptismal ceremony was amazing and blessed!! Enjoy the photos and blessings to the Chenarak family!
I had an amazing privilege to photograph this amazing couple as well as their fun crowd. When I arrived at the brides house at 7 AM, I could already tell it would be a good day. The photo session took place at Westfield Stanley Park. Ceremony took place at West Springfield Slavic Pentecostal Church. Shortly after that, we went to the reception hall which took place at Westfield Full Gospel Church. The reception ended at about 5PM and we ended up deciding to go to the beach :) We arrived at Lighthouse Point Park Beach about an hour before the sunset, which was a perfect time to get everything ready and start shooting. I would say this is my favorite beach to go to after receptions; it’s simply beautiful there! We had a lot of fun and I had an amazing experience photographing the entire crowd. Special thanks to Bogdan Voznyuk for being a big help with my off-camera equipment; I couldn’t have done it without you!
