We hired Olga for our wedding. She was so flexible for our engagement shoot and gave us the most beautiful photos we could've ever imagined and so quickly! On our wedding day her and her assistant Cristina were so prompt, professional, and you couldnt even tell they were there all day! I am so excited to see our wedding photos and to use Olga services again!

I found Olga through hours of searching for good, top notch wedding photographers for our wedding. I came across her profile and was hooked why? not only is she Romanian like my family but her photos were AMAZING. I have spent hours looking at her work and details. Her vision is exactly what I wanted for my wedding, so we met up with her and booked her within days of meeting her.

Our engagement photos turned out AMAZING. The shots she took were beyond what I imagined, beyond pinterest ideas, they are unique and hers and I am thrilled with the results.

Our wedding was beyond amazing and I would not have picked anyone else to trust with my wedding photos. Although it will be a while around (3-4 months) to get our wedding photos, I am not nervous or worried at all because her work is priceless- seriously!

(P.S. As for previous rude reviews about having to feed vendors listen guy's-Don't be cheap! and FEED your vendors!! They work hard and long hours and they do it all for us clients)

Thank you Olga for your amazing kindness, patience and amazing work! Can't wait to see the final product. I will need to make lots of room on my walls for the pics!

Olga was our wedding photographer this October for our wedding, and we had so many compliments on the engagement pictures. We love that we have the rights to all of our pictures so we can share them with friends and family as many times as we want! She did a great job capturing the important moments and we were 100% satisfied with our decision to have Olga as a part of our special day! Thanks Olga, and we love you!

We decided to choose Olga to take our wedding photos as she was able to provide us with the flexibility we were looking for with our photos. Many other photographers require you to choose "packages", which either have too many or not enough photos or time coverage. We were interested in a photographer who would be there to capture the whole event, Olga was there for 12 hours, from hair and makeup to dancing at the reception. Olga gives you discs of your photos with rights, which allows you the flexibility to print what you want. The quality of photos Olga takes are also superior to many of the other photographers in the area. Each photo captures a special moment of time and is truly a work of art. Olga edited a few photos for us to create our Thank You cards, many of our family and friends commented as how the photographs look like they came out of a magazine. We were very happy with the amount of time it actually took to shoot the wedding party photos, this was due to Olga being direct with our wedding party to keep them on track (we actually made it back to the venue before cocktail hour started!) Olga was very professional throughout the entire process. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

We enjoyed working with Olga and as a couple we loved her personality. Her photos (at least our engagement photos...haven't seen the wedding ones yet) are good. She is not the most responsive vendor so if you are looking for a photographer that will shoot specific shots you saw on Pinterest, she may not be the one for you. I sent example pictures for our engagement shots and I don't think we ever referenced them. I didn't do that for the wedding because I didn't think it would matter. For us, we were more easy going on that end and it wasn't upsetting.

Our guests at the wedding were slightly put off by Olga's sometimes abrasive approach. My husband and I didn't take offense to it because we knew she had a job to do on a time crunch and if she wasn't assertive it would have taken forever. And in her defense, people did not listen all that well:)

Also, it will take a while to get your photos. I know that some photographers get them out very quickly, but Olga works alone and seems to shoot many weddings, therefore, expect to wait for many months. Our contract says 3 months, I believe she recently changed it to 4. I'm thinking they will be worth the wait.

Also, you get two CD's - one black and white and one color. The images are high quality and can be printed to a large size - very important! Be sure to ask you photographer about this! Many CD's you get can only print 8x10's clearly.

We were very happy with Olga, love her pictures, and enjoyed working with her. She is very professional the day of and shows up on time giving you your full 12 hours...yes, 12 hours!

Overall, we were very disappointed with hiring Olga as our photographer for our wedding. First of all she lost our engagement pictures and we had to retake them less then 2 month before our wedding. And then some of the pictures from our actually wedding were lost as well. I thought since it happened with the engagement picture that she would really be on her "A game" for our wedding; but we were wrong. And trying to get ahold of her after to get our wedding pictures (which she told us 2 months) took around 4months and we are still waiting on pictures today that her company lost/misplaced that we will never see. Besides that she is impossible to get a hold of. I had to try voicemail (that was always full), email, and Facebook before she ever responded. As a client I felt this was very unprofessional and made my wedding feel not very important to her.
For the pictures she missed a lot of key moments at the ceremony and reception. Also, several member of our wedding party and guest complained that she was not friendly, rude, and hard to find at the reception portion of the wedding; which I agree from lack of pictures. I was very disappointed and would not recommend her to anyone. This is the only part of my wedding that I wish I could have a do-over with!

We found that when it came to photography, prices and the product provided varied widely from vendor to vendor. Our two must haves were: 1) a photographer to be available 12 hours to capture the entire day and 2) the rights to our own images. We wanted to be able to post our pictures, and print them at our leisure. Olga provided everything we wanted and more. She has an amazing eye and did an amazing job with our wedding photography. She suggested a location for an outdoor shoot between the ceremony and reception that provided a variety of fantastic backdrops. We had a large wedding party and she was able to keep everyone focused-(even the goomsmen!) to fit in shoots at two different parks after the church and still get us to the reception on time! We're looking forward to seeing her again in June- one of the groomsmen hired her!

Olga is absolutely fantastic to work with! I loved her from the beginning! She has extremely competitive pricing, and the photos you get from her are BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Know in advance you will only be getting photo discs, so if you need your photographer to give you prints, don't bother calling her.
I worked with Olga for both engagement photos and wedding photos. She knows what looks best in photos, and she will work with you to make sure you get your moneys worth. I ended up with almost 900 photos from my wedding day!!
Plan on meeting with Olga a few times. She likes to meet with the couple before committing to their wedding. Then she likes to stake out the photo locations so you can be efficient on your wedding day!
Since she is such a pro in the business, she has all sorts of suggestions for other vendors if you need help looking!
I plan on using Olga for all future portraits of my family! LOVE her!

Olga did an amazing job capturing our wedding. She took care of details well above and beyond her role as our photographer, and made my day much less stressful. The photos were incredible!! She made us all look like we had just stepped out of a magazine. Olga was there for all of the important moments and is so charming. Everyone loved her! And one of the greatest things about Olga - you own your photos... she sends them to you on CD, so you're not trapped into only ordering prints (like most photographers). You are free to place them on your own flickr page or on Facebook which allows you to share them easily with all of the people that shared your special day. I will call on her again and again for all of my important events. In fact, we've already booked her for maternity shots. :)
