Hiring the Markows as our wedding photographers was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. We had gone been through what seemed like an endless search to find someone who would best capture our wedding memories--the pressure was REAL. When I came across the Markow's website, I was immediately taken by the beauty of their work. When I saw how affordable their packages were, that the price included both photographers, and that they remain on site for the entire event--I was convinced I had experienced divine intervention. We were already pretty much sold, but meeting them in person made our decision feel even more solid. Their talent, passion, and dedication to their work immediately shows. Not to mention, they are super laid back and easy to get on with--you will feel like you want to be real-life friends with this awesome couple.
On our wedding day, they arrived on time and were very professional. They were super un-intrusive and I pretty much forgot that they were even there!--which is kind of great, especially if you are at all shy in front of the camera.
We received our pictures a few weeks ago, and THEY ARE AMAZING. The Markows captured the style we were going for, who we are as a couple, the spirit of our family and friends--there is not one single detail or person from our event that was left out. Every picture my husband and I look at is our favorite! We seriously cannot believe how beautiful each and every last photo is, and we have not stopped getting phone calls about how incredible our photos are. Markows--we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to relive not just our wedding day, but also the emotion and true spirit of the entire event for the rest of our lives.

The Markows were the SINGLE BEST DECISION we made in the entire wedding. We felt that if we hired the right photographer, we wouldn’t need the event on video. As a photographer, I can tell you that the talent and skill of this dynamic duo is ASTOUNDING. They were able to capture the most elusive, nuanced emotions, so that our wedding photos now bring total strangers to tears. Throughout wedding day, they were a positive presence while somehow blending seamlessly into the background. Before, during, and after the event, their first priority was understanding who we are, so that they could do their best work. Boy, did they ever! Everything they captured was as genuine as it was beautiful, and you'd have to be crazy not to hire them.

Julianne and Steven were incredible. They did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. They were incredibly professional and prompt in every communication. They also had amazing ideas for photos (which was great because I had no idea what I was doing. I think I even joked that I had no idea what to do with my face.) I knew when we selected them that I wasn't interested in having a ton of traditional posed wedding portraits (though they did those beautifully as well.) They were just the best. I would highly recommend them to anyone currently in the market for a wedding photographer.

The Markows are amazing, and hiring them was probably our best decision. I went to college with Julianne, and through the wonders of Facebook, kept in touch and was able to view their amazing photography. They are such wonderful people and their talent goes above and beyond, especially for other photographers. There was actually no question in my mind, even before being engaged, that they would photograph our wedding. They literally captured every single moment flawlessly, and we knew there was no point of hiring a videographer because their pictures tell a story by itself. Taking our engagement pictures was a blast, and everything leading up to the wedding was no different. They are so responsive and work with you along every step of the way. Our wedding album is breathtaking, and at first we made a mistake on our end for the album, and they were able to correct the issue for us without a problem. You will be more than thrilled with hiring them!!!!

The Markows are the best hands down. I could shout it from the rooftops all day long. I was out of town when choosing a photographer so we sat down on Skype for over an hour just getting to know each other. They are laid back, confident, professional, down-to-earth and their style is fantastic. We had a blast doing our engagement shoot and they drove two hours in the pouring rain to come shoot at our house. The day may have been gloomy but our pictures are out of this world. I can't wait for them to do our wedding. Just the coolest people you could have as your photographers. AND their wedding package isn't limited by hours. They provide all-day coverage with absolutely no time limit. The best!

I can not even begin to describe how amazing these guys are! From the first meeting to the last moment of the wedding they just get it! They were so easy to work with and understood how crazy a wedding day can be. Just being able to look back and know that we dealt with pure professionals who are passionate about what they do is amazing. Booking them was the best thing I could have done for my wedding day and I would do it again in a heartbeat. They are worth it. Love them!

Julianne and Steven were absolutely amazing! We were planning our wedding from out of state, and they were very helpful during the whole process. They are so down to earth and have an amazing style and eye for capturing the most beautiful pictures! They work so well together to capture every moment of the day, and followed this creativity and expertise through with the pictures and album. They were very accommodating with time and location, and very patient. We could not imagine this day without them!

When looking for a photographer, we were looking for someone who was down to earth and had a natural rhythm when working behind the camera. These two are absolutely amazing. I truly brag about them to everyone I know and consider them some of the sweetest and most creative people I've ever met. From day one they put both of us at ease about the whole process. From meeting at Starbucks, to our engagement session, to grabbing some tea at Panera four days before the wedding day, they were absolutely wonderful. I love their style, their creativity, and their overall passion for their work. All of these things shine through in their pictures and I want to share their gift with the rest of the world. Highly recommended :)

Hands down one of the best decisions we made for our wedding was to hire the Markows. We initially 'met' them over Skype, I love the fact that they want to personally get to know their clients ahead of time to discuss what we were looking for and if they could fulfill that, and boy did they ever! They did both our engagement photos and wedding photos. The engagement photo session was great because not only did we get amazing photos, some of which were in a very urban/modern setting on the city streets of Manhattan and others in a more 'rural' setting (if you can call it that) in Central Park demonstrating their versatility, but it also allowed us to get to know them in person prior to the wedding, and for them to understand us as a couple and what might work best for us on the day of the wedding. On the wedding day itself they were everywhere we needed them to be, captured the day in its entirety, but were never 'in the way'. Having two photographers made a difference because they're able to capture the same moment from two different angles (for example the bride's face as she first entered the ceremony and the grooms reaction as he sees her for the first time all at the same moment). Of course they took all the traditional pictures of family members and the venue, etc. but the way they were able to capture the rest of the day from start to finish with their documentary style of shooting provided for amazing photos, not only capturing the events, but more importantly we feel they were able to capture the emotion of the day in their photos. We have two other family members who are getting married in the next year and both will be using the Markows as well after seeing the work that they did for us, and we couldn't be happier to get to spend some more time with them, they're great people on top of it all!

Julianne and Steven are amazing! When I began looking for a photographer for my wedding I saw their work on Facebook through a friend who used them. Their candid pictures and artistic approach really sold me, i did not want your run of the mill pictures. I wanted pictures to caption moments and leave the posing to a minimum. The Markows hit this mark perfectly! Not to mention they were always quick to respond back to me, and believe me I always have questions. They were patient and always accommodating. We did engagements pictures, a guest book, and our wedding photography with them. Its one of the best vendors we chose for our wedding. We recently received the album and its perfect! The quality is second to none and the layout is beautiful. I would recommend the Markows to anyone (in fact i already have and she's using them for her wedding in August!)
Do yourself a favor and hire the Markows to photograph your special day!
