Val photographed our son’s Bar Mitzvah on September 13th and we can’t say enough nice things about him and his work. He was such a pleasure to work with – highly professional, thoughtful, responsive to our wishes, flexible (he suggested that we change the date for taking photographs at the temple so that we could include more family members), and unobtrusive during the event. We received the photographs (more than 400) in less than two weeks and we LOVE them!!! They capture the day in full – including the sheer joy on our son’s face as he was greeted by his friends; people “in action” as they danced and played games; and the more pensive moments during the candlelighting ceremony and speeches. Val’s photographs will help us relive that day over and over again. We highly recommend him – and already have to friends -- and look forward to having him photograph our next son’s Bar Mitzvah in 3 years!

These guys were amazing. They met with us beforehand and captured EXACTLY what we wanted. Very easy to work with and very non-invasive once the reception began. Could not recommend highly enough!

We can't say enough positive things about Val and his work. From start to end, Val was personable, professional, and created the most beautiful shots of our wedding! We would highly recommend Val to anyone looking for a photographer. He captured our day perfectly, just as we had hoped, creating beautiful, natural photos of us and our families. His artistic eye created such unique shots that amazed us! He also knew how to make everyone relaxed, how to photograph unpredictable children, and captured those fleeting moments when people are expressing their raw emotions and most natural selves.

Excellent photographer!! He is an artist AND easy to work with (not an easy combo to find). I can't tell you how great he was with tired children, and it made all the difference, the pictures are natural. He has great ideas, using landscape, lighting, and the environment with talent. He captured the entire story of the day: the joy, the tears, the quiet moments, the anticipation, the drama, hope.... Above all, Val is generous

If you are stressing about a wedding photographer, stop your search with Red Umbrella. They are the best if you are looking for amazing photos taken in an unobtrusive manner by great photographers. Val promptly responded to all my questions and inquiries and even created a custom, traditional style album at our request. He is very accommodating to your schedule (which is great because you will likely have lots going on with planning all the details of the day) and was always on time and patient with our questions.

On the day of the wedding Val was prompt and professional. Val is wonderful to work with and has a zen-like way of making what can be a stressful day clam and relaxing. He captured so many amazing photos of my friends and I getting ready – and yet we never felt as if we were being photographed, so all the pictures have a natural, organic way about them. Val has a quiet way of just being in the background, yet seeing and photographing special moments, glances, smiles, etc. This was the theme of the day as Val and Tim photographed the ceremony and reception, catching special moments all day long.

Val and Tim captured over 800 beautiful photos of our day – which were processed and online for our review about a week after our wedding day. Once we selected the images for our album, the images were finalized, and again sent for our review before being sent to print. I really appreciated Val’s thoroughness – he realizes what a special day your wedding is and truly goes above and beyond to make sure that he captures it perfectly for you.

Val and Tim are the BEST! Val was so flexible with meetings and phone conversations, always available to chat. Our wedding was Nov 5th, and he got our photos back to us a week and a half later! The pictures are absolutely stunning, we will have a hard time choosing which ones we want for our album. We saw each other before the wedding and they captured the "first look" beautifully. They were so unobtrusive the entire time, I didn't even notice they were taking pictures! Highly recommend, wedding photos were very important to me and I'm so happy I chose Red Umbrella!

We selected Red Umbrella as an option for our wedding photographer on a reference and knew as soon as we met with Val Vechnyak that he was exactly who we wanted to chronicle our day. Val makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and adds his personal artist flair to create unique yet very personal moments. Val is genuinely honored by the privilege of sharing one's wedding day and captures the spirit of each individual. We are so delighted to hve worked with Val - he pays attention to details, is on top of everything start to finish, and embodies the customer-first focus. I would hire him again without thinking twice.

Val and his assistant are such sweethearts and have great eyes. If you're interested in a mostly photo-journalistic approach with some portraits mixed in - but with a artistic flair/interesting compositions, Val is GREAT. I found his sample photo albums and my actual pictures on par with photographers who charge 5 to $6,000 whereas Val's base package is a little over $3,000. He was easy to work with, really nice to be around day of, and produced a great product. I am so glad I stumbled across one of his albums at a venue I visited. We was such a find. Highly recommend him.

Val was a pleasure to work with. He made us feel very comfortable and the pictures and album he created were beautiful. Prices were very reasonable - especially for having a second photographer which was nice to be able to capture both the guys getting ready and the girls getting ready. He really came through for us considering our wedding was during a hurricane and he didn't make us feel like he was in a hurry to leave at any point. I have already recommended him to a few friends and will continue to do so.

The team at Red Umbrella proved to be more than just capable photographers. They met with us to bring our vision to life in a tasteful and artistic way. Not only did they accomodate locations at opposite ends of the state for our engagement session and wedding, they provided a didgital montage of wedding album, online proofs and Hi-Res orginals among other items in the package we selected.

Some of the most important criteria were the team's professionalism, and their ability to operate in the midst of hundreds of friends and family in a friendly manner. The soft skills are something that some admittedly do not have. During the search for a photographer, we encountered one person who admittedly commented that he had problems with family members taking pictures at the same time as him.

Finally, Red Umbrella skillfully displayed the ability to capture the candid and spontaneous shots that made our day so special.

Val and his team know the difference between taking pictures and photography. While this can be considered cliche, it is the absolute truth. I would recommend them to anyone!
