I was blown away by Gulnara's talent, professionalism, and sincerely kind approach! I can't recommend her more highly. Firstly, her talent is out of this world. Her resume is a pedigree of fantastic experience--including 10 years as a wedding photographer--and it shows. She, (and her second shooter Paul, who we also loved), takes the time to cover all the bases: classic photos for the grandparents, full family shots, and, her hallmark: extraordinarily captured unique lighting, positioning, and candids. Our photos are special, and really show the emotions we, and those around us experienced at our event. She was also very responsive by email (my preferred form of communication) both before and after the wedding. When time came to review the photos, Gulnara encouraged us to make it special. She even went so far as to invite us to her home (also in our city) to review these on her couch with lit candles and wine. She does not just take the photos, and leave. She takes time to make sure you enjoy re-experiencing your event through her art. It was a special experience all around, and by far one of our favorite things about the entire event. Thank you, Gulnara!

Gulnara was recommended to me by a friend. I met her for the initial consult and booked immediately based on the quality of her work that she showed me at the meeting. Although she is on the expensive side, you get what you pay for. Gulnara delivered HUNDREDS of beautiful photos of my engagement and wedding day. The most amazing part is she and her 2nd shot capture everything but you hardly even notice them there in the moment. Gulnara is very responsive to questions/e-mails, and takes the time to make you happy. She definitely goes out of her way to make you comfortable - whether its before, during and after your event. When it comes to the albums, Gulnara has several different layout and style options at different price points. She will suggest a layout with your photos and then work with you to design the albums to get them exactly how you want them (including airbrush, cropping, etc). She was very patient with my dozens of e-mails and very accommodating. I would recommend her to any friend or family member to capture their special day.

Gulnara is an absolutely fabulous and wonderful photographer! We had her come for our rehearsal dinner and wedding day and she and her assistant captured so many amazing shots! All throughout the day she helped us remain calm and stay on schedule - always important on a busy day like your wedding day. We were so grateful to have her and all of the amazing memories she captured - there's just so many to choose from it's been hard to pick out our favorites for our album! You should not hesitate in hiring her, she is worth every penny and more - you will not be disappointed!!!!

Gulnara was a superb wedding photographer who came highly recommended by a friend, and I pass on my recommendation to you. Because of her background in photographic journalism, Gulnara can work under any situation, venue, and crowd, and is not afraid of "difficult" weddings. She was attentive to every detail, responded to emails very quickly, was creative in her shots, and was always professional and friendly. Her excellent work speaks for itself. She captured moments perfectly and we are so pleased by our photos. Gulnara was unobtrusive but captured all the golden moments. We also hired a second photographer to capture additional shots, which was well worth it, since Gulnara can't be everywhere at once. (For instance, the assistant photographer took shots of our guests while Gulnara took shots of a private tea ceremony.)

I know weddings are very expensive, but as everyone will tell you, don't skimp out on photography—this is the one thing that you'll continually look back on to remember your magical day.

Gulnara takes beautiful pictures and was an invaluable part of our wedding. The pictures speak for themselves. But beyond the technical and creative aspects of photography, Gulnara was a lot of fun and she knew how to go along with the moment without taking it over. As a professional with a journalism background, she was able to capture the moments as they were, without the staging or pretension that comes with other event photographers. That's not to say that she did not provide some "coaching." As a couple, we were not used to posing for the camera, but Gulnara just made it easy and fun for us. I highly recommend Gulnara and her team!

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!
