Katya and I had been in contact for over a year prior to our wedding day. Not only did she provide me with information based on her personal experiences in destination wedding planning, but she also helped me to choose a resort, rehearsal dinner space, and was a wonderful sounding board when things were stressing me out, and the proverbial "shit" hit the fan. The day of the wedding Katya and Rob were warm and friendly and managed to be in a million places at one time, while never being in the way. We also chose to do a sunrise session in which they picked us up at our resort at 5:45 AM after leaving our wedding well past 10pm. The entire time they were upbeat and positive and the shoot was incredible and beautiful! We got our photos back WEEKS before we thought we would and were absolutely blown away by what they were able to capture. From their blog post to their over 1200 photos we were given we just could not have imagined a better experience. I would recommend these two angels to everyone!

My husband and I will never forget the magical sunrise experience that we received from Katya. She went above and beyond to give us the most amazing time together in paradise. We will cherish the photographs and memories captured by her forever. She made us feel so comfortable from the second we meet her!
We are from upstate NY were the weather is hit or miss so we decided to have a beach destination wedding to give not only us but our family and friends an amazing time in paradise soaking up the sun with us. One of my guest (my bridesmaid’s brother) is a photographer so we decided to have him take our pictures for our wedding day since he was attending the wedding anyways. The risk we took was that he was used to the weather in NY not Punta Cana and he had never photographed a beach wedding before. We did not think of the humidity, wind and all the other factors that are present at an outdoor beach wedding. To make a long story short, our wedding day pictures are very blurry and distorted. The best advice I can give future destination brides is: do the research and read the reviews to find the best photographer to capture your special day.
We are so incredibly thankful for the sun rise photo session that we were so fortunate to receive from the amazingly talented Katya the day before our wedding. We will never forget that day and the experience she gave us!It was a week before we departed for Punta Cana when I found Katya Nova Photography on facebook while browsing Palace Resort/Hard Rock Brides - Past and Future page. She had posted that she was in Punta Cana Dominican Republic and had an opening for a boudoir or couple photo session at a private beach front villa called The Palms Punta Cana. As soon as we arrive at the Palms villa we were in awe. Katya supplied us with a fresh pineapple, some music, wine, and champagne throughout our time while taking photos. She took her time and made sure she captured every angle, feature, and scenery around.

This was an awesome experience for my husband and I! We are from California and were visiting Punta Cana for the first time on our first year wedding anniversary. I wanted this moment to be captured, and I started to search for a photographer. My husband wasn't too excited about the idea of taking pictures but once I sent him Katya's link, he was like "Book her NOW!"

We are so happy we did. The pictures came out amazing and not to mention my husband looks at them almost everyday and thanks me for setting up an amazing shoot.

Now we have our memories captured in a picture that will last us a lifetime!!!

THANK YOU Katya and Rob!!!

Kayta really goes above and beyond a photographer. She offers friend-to-friend advice to all of her brides about just about any aspect of your wedding! She lives in the Dominican Republic and sees wedding after wedding - she knows the BEST vendors, the BEST venues, the BEST of everything, which makes her a perfect resource! And she has absolutely nothing to gain from advising you to use one venue over another, so you know she's being 100% helpful and honest.

Her energy is infectious on your wedding day. She is one of the happiest people that I've ever met and it's so obvious that she truly loves her job. She has little tricks to getting the MOST amazing photos of couples. She can really find the beauty in any situation.

She updates her blog with photos and commentary on each of her weddings and it's such a great addition to her whole package. Her blog posts tell your love story through your wedding photos. It's so special. My wedding photos were electronically delivered to me within 4 weeks of my wedding day (which is a SUPER quick turn-around time given the number of weddings she shoots!). I was giving digital copies and am free to get my photos printed using whichever photo printer I choose. The website also allows for unlimited downloads, which made it VERY convenient to offer the photos to my close family members. The photos themselves are GORGEOUS! I could not be happier. And we were given SO MANY PHOTOS! This is so special to us because we spent so much money on ONE DAY, we want to remember every detail!

All in all, we LOVED Katya Nova Photography. There isn't a single negative thing to say about it. She is worth every. Single. Penny!

Katya and Rob are so amazingly talented!! They make such an amazing team together, by creating a laid back environment where we could really be spontaneous and allowed for creative and unique wedding photos, rather than the typical formal wedding photos. They captured every beautiful aspect of our wedding and from every angle. They asked us to answer questions to get to know us better, and we felt that it was such a special and personal way to become friends rather than just as clients. We never doubted their talent at all, as I had been following their blog for a whole year prior to our wedding. When we finally met them on the day of our wedding it was as if we had reunited with a long lost friend. They were fun, friendly and extremely passionate about their work and ensuring that we were given the best experience and quality photos possible. It was such a relaxing environment with all of our friends and family. When we met up with them the following morning for our Rock the Dress session, it was as if we were just a couple of beach bums hanging out at the beach together. We just got our pictures back in record time, some of our friends had complained previously about not receiving their wedding pictures for 6 month to a year after their wedding and we received them within a couple of weeks!! AMAZING!! All of our friends and family have complimented them nonstop about how PERFECT the photos are and how they wish they knew about Katya Nova when they were getting married. We absolutely LOVE all of the gorgeous photos, every photo looks like it came out of a magazine, as our friends have commented. I cannot wait to frame a bunch of them; I am actually having trouble trying to find the best ones, because they are all so unique and amazing!! I DEFINITELY recommend Katya and Rob if you are looking for passionate, relaxed, and personal photographers, who offer magical, creative, and unique photos.

Katya & Rob of Katya Nova Photography are absolutely AMAZING!!! Truly AMAZING!!!! Throughout my search for a photographer for my wedding in Punta Cana, I came across Katya's blog. Immediately, I was smitten by her images. Her images all had such warmth and I could feel the love between the bride and groom that emerges from each image. Katya and I communicated very often throughout my wedding planning process. She is extremely helpful and has a lot of great insights. When I met Katya for the first time, I felt as if I was meeting a old girlfriend. Both her and Rob are extremely professional, warm, and have such great spirits. They delivered our images sooner than expected. And what can I say, but, OMG, my images are OUT OF THIS WORLD!!. We are in awe... they are so beautiful. Katya & Rob captured every essence of our day and the love we have and it shows in each and every image. My advice to all future brides/grooms who are considering using Katya Nova Photography to capture your day, DO IT!!! You will not be disappointed, trust me. I am SO very HAPPY that we chose Katya & Rob to document our wedding. They are truly OUTSTANDING & ONE OF A KIND!!!

On any brides big day with all the stress and nerves that lead up to the magical moment, there is very little time to be reminded that you need to breath let go and enjoy! Besides the beautiful pictures Katya had provided us, she provided the groom and I with something far more valuable and at no additional cost. She put my mind at ease, she reminded me to make it our day, at every turn that I would neglect myself as a bride. This is a service that I can not put a value on, but is something that is obsolete to have at your wedding day. My groom and I are free spirits, however with that being said we are not the picture posing types. Katya & Rob completely worked around these flaws, and the finishing product showed. Needless to say we love them both!

We were looking for a photographer for our destination wedding in Punta Cana and we got so lucky because my husband worked with someone that recommended Katya Nova. As soon as I viewed their blog, I fell in love with their style of photography. Once I started communicating with Katya through email, I fell in love with them even more! She is truly an amazing person inside and out and she was so helpful when it came to answering my questions and I really felt like she cared. We had Katya, Rob and Lacy that came to capture our wedding day and all three of them were amazing beyond words! When I met Katya before the ceremony, I have to say, I was right away impressed with her organization skills and really felt like I can trust her to take beautiful pictures without me having to say anything. After our beach ceremony, Katya made sure that we take pictures with all family members. She had great communication skills and was not shy to tell people what to do which I loved! We had booked them for 6hrs and since we were running a bit late, she came to me once we were close to 6hrs and asked me if I would like them to stay an extra hr which I found super thoughtful. I was so impressed with the fact that they were so flexible and came to ask me if I want them to stay longer instead of leaving exactly after 6hrs. They ended up staying 1.5hr more than they were supposed to and the last half hour for free!! I have to say, they were really the dream team and I'm not only saying that because they took breathtaking pictures, but because they were genuine, passionate, and just beautiful in every way. Their love for life really inspired me and we couldn't have asked for better people to come capture one of the most important days of our lives. Lastly, I should also mention that they send our edited pictures after only 4 weeks and the pictures were absolutely wonderful. They really paid attention to details and made sure to capture all the special moments. Thank you so much Katya Nova!

Before our wedding day even arrived, we were beyond excited to meet Katya and Rob. They made our day even more special than it already was and we had SUCH a good time. Everyone at our wedding commented about our “amazing photographers” and how spectacular they were. It was clear to everyone they came in contact with that they both really love what they do – and are experts – in capturing breathtaking and loving moments. They both brought a sense of order and calm and helped everyone relax and enjoy the events without worrying throughout the day. We also loved how they took the time to get to know us — from afar — so they could capture our wedding to reflect who we were as a couple. They have you complete a short "homework" document that you send to them in advance so they know the specifics about your wedding, the music you like, any special events that will be taking place, etc. They have to be one of the BEST – if not THE best – photographers in the world! If there's any doubt in your mind, erase it! You will be SO happy you chose to work with them!
