It might be a good idea to take a look at what my past clients have to say about me instead of solely relying on what I tell you. Their experiences can provide valuable insight.

I am OBSESSED with our photos (both wedding & portrait shoot). I found Danila online through another couple that had been married at our venue (The Foundry LIC). I loved the editorial and romantic style. I was a little hesitant because I love a good first-hand recommendation but couldn’t compare his photos to any other wedding photographer. During our initial conversation it was easy and flowed. He knew our venue (which could have tricky lighting) and got our vision. During our portrait shoot he was able to get to know my husband and I and we were able to get to know him. He made us both super comfortable in front of the camera. When we received our portrait session photos we were blown away..making us so excited for the capturing of the big day!
Danila and his assistant, Liobov (who was LOVELY), were right on time, easy-going, and got pictures of everything without being pushy or overwhelming. They worked with our big families requests and many personalities. They captured the very best parts of the very best day.
So, THIS IS YOUR FIRST-HAND RECOMMENDATION…if you like the style (timeless, classic, romantic, editorial, perfectly edited & candid) book then now. We are in love with our photos and EVERYONE has made comments about how stunning they are. We cannot thank them enough!
Adrian & Charlie
We hired Danila because we loved his artistic eye and photography style and he did not disappoint! We just got married so are still waiting for our wedding photos but we are over the moon obsessed with the shots from our pre-wedding photo session. The photos feel candid, full of energy, and full of love. We were worried that it would feel awkward posing for photos as we have never done a photo shoot before, but Danila made us feel relaxed and at ease and we had so much fun with him during the shoot and on our wedding day.
If you are looking for beautiful photos that will capture the magic of your love and wedding day and can serve as works of art to hang in your home, 11/10 recommend working with Danila!

We could not be happier with our wedding photos from Danila and Lana’s NYC Wedding Photography. They captured every moment of our day so beautifully and we truly feel like we get to relive our amazing day every time we look at our photos.
Danila and Lana are also just so fun to work with. We had a unique day - elopement during COVID with a 6 hr photoshoot all around the city at our favorite spots and we felt as though we were just hanging out with two friends all day having fun, which made the day that much more special. If we could play back our day all over again, we would because it was so fabulous. Luckily we will have these amazing pictures to remind us of that day and relive it through the photo journey, so beautifully told through Danila & Lana’s lens. Logistically, everything was also very easy and we never had any issues being in touch with Danila and Lana, whether by email or phone.
Nickolas & Anna
Very easy-going guys and at the same time they are professionals at their very best. Enjoyed the photoshoot a lot, that went through easily and naturally with a lot of joy.
Danila has that unique style and vision that made him our favorite photographer.
Ehsan & Kyrollos
Danila and his team were just the right vendors for our wedding. Their style of photography and video editing skills not only captured some of the best moments of our wedding but emphasized them even further! The wait to receive all the photos and videos was so worth it; I urge you to check them out and know you will not regret choosing Danila and his team. I cannot thank you all for granting us forever memories that we and our family will always look back on!
Blaine & Steven
Danila and Lana were the best wedding photographer and videographer ever! They made us feel so comfortable and every single picture they sent to us (over 550!) was incredible and everything I told them I wanted out of my wedding pictures. The video was also out of this world beautiful. I couldn't believe what they were able to capture at my backyard wedding!
Kailyn & Tahir
We had a wonderful experience having our photos taken by Danila and Lana's team. Extra care and patience were given throughout the shoot to make us feel as comfortable as possible. Our vision was captured perfectly...A must book for your NYC wedding photos.
Inessa & Garrett
Hiring Danila and Lana was by far the best decision we have made for our wedding! We actually booked them before we even got our venue and date finalized. My husband and I were looking for non-conventional wedding photos and video and their portfolio was exactly what we were looking for.
They were amazing to work with and were very flexible during our rescheduling due to the Covid. They made us feel very comfortable during the engagement photo session in NYC and we were blown away with the results. After seeing those photos - we couldn’t wait to see what they will have during our wedding! They made all of our bridal party feel comfortable during the photos, and even out for was happy to be photographed. We had a very hard time choosing our thank you note photo since all of them are so beautiful!!! Their photos always stand out and we always get compliments on our wedding and engagement photos. I would honestly consider marrying my husband every year just to hire Danila & Lana again.
Natalia & Alexander
Had so much fun doing our engagement photo shoot with Danila. He did a great job guiding us when it comes to different poses/angles/spot. He knows the areas where he shoots well (we were in West Village). Danila made both my partner and I very at ease, so the 1-hour photo shoot totally flew by. Can’t recommend him enough!
Gavriella & Zachary
My wife and I hired Danila and Lana for our wedding elopement then again for our one year anniversary when we celebrated with family and we couldn't be happier with the way the photos turned out for both dates. They do incredible work and were able to capture all the most tender and candid moments from our wedding. Looking back at the photos, we're able to feel the magic of both days all over again. Not only did the photos turn out great but they are so much fun to work with as well and made us feel at ease. Can't thank them enough.
LaQuawn & Megumi
The photos and videos are flawless! Thank you Danila, Lana, and the rest of the team for capturing the essence of our event and the love between my wife and I. The photographs and videos came out exactly the way we imagined when we decided to book you for our day. We appreciate your style, direction, and vision because this end product is just awesome! You guys have us looking like models! For anyone considering booking them...do it. You will be overwhelmingly satisfied with not just the finished product, but also the overall experience and process of taking photos and videos with them. They are fun, down to earth, and will make sure that you enjoy taking the photos as much as they do. Once again, thank you!
Dahiana & Emiliano
I was lucky enough to have the Danila & Lana team by our side on our wedding day. We had a small (40 guest) wedding so I we really wanted our photos to feel as intimate and special as it was. Our photos really captured this! Our photos did not feel staged - this was a big request. Everything captured felt very effortless. I also wanted our photos to have a vintage/warm quality. The editing done to our photos was just perfect, not overdone. Felt like something out of an editorial magazine. Our video was also another gem.
Danila & Lana team were incredibly accommodating and kind. Both us and our guest enjoyed their company on our wedding night. Thank you!
Linet & Bryan
Danila and Lana are so talented, you really can't go wrong working with them! They have a really good eye and aesthetic—Everything they shoot feels very relaxed and organic, but with a definite cool factor. They have great personalities that compliment each other well, and both made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. They captured really wonderful details too without much direction. We are obsessed with our photos!
Piera & Robert
What can we say? Danila and Lana are absolutely incredible. They are true artists that were born to do their work. They connected with our story. They were flexible and compassionate with any problem that we had planning, and more than that, they are just people who love what they do.
Their team is so unique, professional, and creative that we don’t have words to describe their level of professionalism. The amazing photos and videos that we received are just extra in the whole service. We always knew the quality of the material, but that combined with how much they care about our special day and how much heart and talent they put into making it happen. It's just a treasure in the industry.
Insha & William
Had a great time with Danila at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens for our elopement photo shoot, he was professional, courteous and went the extra mile for all the shots. He even got into a tree to take some gorgeous overhead shots with the cherry blossoms floating down on us! Fantastic experience end-to-end, loved the pictures and have been sharing them with all my family!
Michelle & Brian
Danilia and Lana shot both our engagement photos and wedding photos, and we could not be happier with our photos! The photos were absolutely gorgeous and worth the wait. We got married in November so it took 3 months to get the photos.
Danilia and Lana were also so easy to work with. They are also an adorable husband/wife duo! I recommend them to everyone!!
Lisa & Mike
I was drawn to Danila's photos and debated for weeks before reaching out to him because I was afraid his prices would be out of our range. I love the editorial and journalistic style of his photos. All the couples he features on his website and Instagram look amazing! A wedding advice I read mentioned that one should love all the wedding photos and not just the few "good ones". We are so glad to have hired and worked with him for our wedding day. I so awkward when I take photos, Danila and Lana gave great directions. They work fast too. Six weeks later we saw our product and we love every one of them.
Marissa & Eric
We booked Danila for our wedding coming up in October. Danila was so helpful and responsive throughout the booking process. We just got our pictures back from our engagement shoot last month and love how beautiful and natural our pictures look! We have gotten so many great responses from our friends and family! We can't wait for October!
Kattaleeya & Jason
We are so grateful and lucky to have chosen Danila and Lana as our photographers for our wedding. They were punctual, professional and we couldn’t have asked for more. Our wedding is our special day and your wedding will be a special day , Danila and Lana will make it so much better. We had our wedding in Peddle Beach, Dumbo. After, we took pictures in the bar in West Elm with close friends and family. We then went to the carousal and went to Soho to take more pictures. It was a memorable experience because it was effortless on our part. Danila and Dana gave great instructions and we were able to follow easily.
Lauren & Keith
I found Danila and Lana on Instagram and immediately fell in love with their urban style of photography. Lana did mine and my husband's photos for our Brooklyn wedding and she was wonderful. I originally booked Danila but my wedding date changed and he wasn't available for my date so he offered his partner Lana. Lana was early for the start time, efficient and professional. She told us how to pose which I needed because I don't know how to pose for photos. She would say "perfect" so we knew she had got the shot she needed and that we were doing a good job. Responses were always in a timely manner and we received the photos exactly when we were supposed to, which funny enough was on my birthday! Their contract was thorough and easy to understand. She has a creative eye and took us around Brooklyn to capture different settings with my husband. Finally, the editing was top notch!! I love love love their style!
Thank you again, Love Lauren & Keith.
Anna & Nikolai
We chose Danila and Lana by tags on Instagram. All wedding photos that we liked on the Instagram were certainly published by one of their accounts. So then we decided that it was fate. And intuition did not let us down!
It is very pleasant to work with the guys. And the results exceed even the most daring expectations! Thank you guys! Thank you for making an important event in our life so unforgettable!
Niko and Anna
Caroline & Elliot
