We were fortunate to have Gulnara Studio as the photographer for our destination wedding in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and we could not be happier!! She is AMAZING as a photographer and the most wonderful person to work with – the day of the wedding she actually coordinated the events and was by my side keeping everything running smoothly. She was such a calming presence that day and I was so thankful to have her with us. The photos she did for us are so alive and full of special memories. I can recall the emotions of that day and how our guest felt and enjoyed themselves because of her photography. She anticipates the events in such a way that it enables her to capture the most specials of moments and recreate the essence of what that special day meant to you. I would recommend her to anyone that wants their wedding captured as a journey because her photography speaks to you. Gulnara is simply THE BEST!

My experience with Gulnara was fantastic from day one. This was so important because I was planning my wedding, which was located in New York, all the way from California. My best friend, who is a wedding photographer as well referred me to Gulnara and I am so thrilled that she did! She is extremely professional and made the entire process so smooth. She also has a really amazing billing process that made it so easy to make payments online, something my husband and I truly appreciated. She also has a great way of sharing images in a very user friendly online gallery. I was able to order prints from her very easily and the quality was outstanding. The day of the wedding, Gulnara was also already familiar with the venue and strived to get us both the best setting for our personal and family photos. She really went above and beyond...and this included assisting me in making sure my bra was clipped into my dress and I know this is not that important to some ladies out there, but if she hadn't picked up on it, my cleavage wouldn't have looked as VAVOOM that day! ;) Thank you Gulnara. I plan on hiring you again and again!

You should not hesitate in hiring her, she is worth every penny and more - you will not be disappointed!!!!

I found Gulnara through the "best of the knot" magazine, and she is "the best"! Upon meeting her she took the time to really get to know us as a couple instead of throwing a list of her fees as other photographers did. She is not a traditional photographer, rather she is a true artist. I have recommended her for my good friends' wedding and they were blown away as well. Her ability to connect with her clients on a personal level was unlike the other photographers we met. Book her ASAP!

I just can't say enough good things about Gulnara Studio.

Photography was always a top priority for us when planning our wedding. Yes, there are the flowers and the cake and the million other details you worry about - but as a bride 4 month after her wedding, I can absolutely assure you that I treasure my photos from Gulnara the most. As in, if there were ever a fire in my building, I am taking my husband and my photos from Gulnara on my way out. And that's because:

1. Gulnara's photos DOCUMENT. With a Pulitzer nomination under her belt, she's arguably the best documentary photographer around. In a sea of activities, among hundreds of people, Gulnara never missed a beat. Looking at the pictures, she must have been able to sense important moments before they actually happened. At the same time, I never once noticed her presence during the ceremony or the reception. She was invisible, yet incredibly focused. And she documented much more than just the events of the day. She documented also the subtlety in the stolen glances my husband and I exchanged amidst the crowd, the quiet tears of joy on our parents' eyes, a couple in the guests squeezing each other's hands during our ceremony, my grandmother with her usual happy smirk, my bridesmaids trying to touch up my makeup. And when I look at my pictures now, I am reminded not only of one of the most significant events of my life, but also of all the overwhelming emotions I felt that day, and the unmistakable joy and affection shone in my husband's eyes.

2. Gulnara's photos TRANSFORM. Face it, not every aspect of your wedding is going to look picture-perfect, no matter how hard you plan. My hundreds of cupcakes, for instance, were lovingly made by many of my friends, none of which were professional baker. They will always be the best cupcakes I have ever had, because of the memories I shared with my friends. But they all had different color, different sizes, and slightly different frosting :-). I didn't expect them to actually look good. Gulnara's photos of my cupcakes look better than professional bakery websites. And that's not the only example. Everything at my wedding looked better through her lenses. That's the power of photography - in Gulnara's experienced hands, it selects, and transforms.

3. Gulnara's photos are BEAUTIFUL. If I wanted photos that looked like they were shot in Auto-Mode all the time, I would have just handed a friend a digital camera. Gulnara's photos, however, showed an in-depth understanding of light, composition, color, etc. I have regularly read her blog for years, mesmerized by her photos of complete strangers. I look at her website for the same reason I go to Gallery and Exhibit - the experience of human emotions expressed in an art form. And to have her work now, of my wedding, is something I would always treasure.

4. Gulnara's photos are CREATIVE. Like all other brides obsessed with photography, I have spent countless days, months, years, looking at wedding photos on blogs, websites, magazines, etc. Because of that, very little surprises me anymore - I have most likely seen a similar shot elsewhere. But one of the things I respect most about Gulnara as an artist is that she continually experiments and she continually changes and she continually creates. You might have thought you saw her entire port-folio (which I probably did :-)), and yet when you receive your photos, you will still squeal with delight at something you hadn't expected.

I could talk forever about her photos, but there are photographers far more qualified than me who have discussed her work in details. What I will say is that she has given me and my husband a memory we will forever cherish, and a treasure we now share with our family and friends.

And as awesome of a photographer as Gulnara is, she's an even better person. She's as kind and beautiful as anybody you will ever meet. It is an honor to have been photographed by her. It's an even greater pleasure to have gotten to know her.
