My fiancé and I are getting married out of the country next Spring, however we knew that we wanted engagement photos taken in Chicago. After viewing WASIO's portfolio online and speaking with Yaneck on the the phone we knew that Yaneck and Sasha would be a perfect fit! We thought that we would be incredibly awkward in front of a camera, but Yaneck and Sasha made us immensely comfortable! I couldn't be happier with the finished product and cannot wait to share our photos with family and friends!

I was SO happy with Wasio Photography!! I chose them because I liked how they shot previous weddings, but was even more impressed by their professionalism. They spent all day with us on our wedding day, from our preparations through the reception. They were so friendly and charming, they felt like part of the family AND they moments they captured of us and our family/friends reflected the beauty of that day.

We chose WASIO after experiencing them first hand at a prior wedding. Having done photography, weddings included, for a number of years myself I had high expectations for the person I was going to trust to capture our wedding day. I knew I didn’t want to deal with a giant photography company that contracted out all their photographers to take cookie cutter photos that might look just fine but would be indistinguishable from any other wedding shoot.

Yaneck and Sasha are fun but professional, prepared and produce beautiful shots. Prior to the wedding we met with them and took a walk around the event location then chatted more about the feel we were looking for. They took all that in and delivered a personalized experience for us. All the little things that made our wedding unique were captured for us to remember.

Their checklist of items and timeline asked for more details than I think the onsite wedding planner had asked. This wasn't a bad thing; it actually made us realize a couple times that we didn't account for enough time in certain places. They also provided us with some realistic times things take to do.

I would say WASIO met and exceeded all of our expectations without question.

WASIO comes highly recommended. Our wedding was November 30, 2013 and we found WASIO through the preferred vendor list at the restaurant we rented out for our wedding. From our first meeting with Yaneck and Sasha we felt that they would be able to capture all of the special moments of our wedding and they did! They took photos of the scenery, members of our families, and all the important things that we would have never thought of. Also, the requested that we complete a timeline of our wedding to allow them the information as to what we were planning, who was involved and the time. They didn't miss a thing and if you want a worry free, high quality professional photographer then you must have WASIO as your photographer!

We used WASIO Photography for our wedding in October of 2013. My husband decided that we absolutely had to use them when he read in their profile that Yaneck's first camera was manual - he felt that it was important that someone was trained to see the good picture and not just snap a bunch of shots with the digital camera and hope for the best. They have quite a talent for spoting beautiful shots and the best poses and making you feel comfortable about taking pictures - when maybe you really aren't. They are friendly and outgoing and you truly feel like friends, which makes the picture taking process that much easier. While the price is a bit high - it is well worth the money, these pictures will last a lifetime and you will not be sorry that you chose WASIO. Opt for the engagement session if you aren't comfortable around a camera, it is great practice and will ensure that you have awesome wedding pictures. Plus it let's the photographers get to know you. And if you are having a big wedding and need a second photographer, ask for Claudio - he is also amazing! We could honestly not say enough positive things about our wedding pictures. And everyone gushes over how gorgeous the pictures are - even 2 months later!

Yaneck and Sasha with WASIO Photography are fantastic! I met with a couple of photographers and made the easy decision to go with WASIO. Yaneck and Sasha are so friendly and fun - they make everything comfortable. My mom is still laughing about when Sasha told her to "work it" during our family photos on wedding day. :)

The entire process went incredibly seamlessly with WASIO. We chose to have engagement photos done before the wedding which I totally recommend. It was a great opportunity for us to get comfortable in front of the camera and really learn which angles worked best for us photo-wise.

Yaneck and Sasha really go above and beyond to make sure that everything will be perfect. They met me on a random weeknight just to look at potential "first look" locations. I thought it was super friendly of them considering they got nothing in return for this.

And oh my gosh the pictures are amazing! All of the photos look fantastic - our families can't get enough of them. They really captured everything and more that we wanted them to during our wedding. I would and will recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking for amazing wedding photos.

The team at WASIO photography went above and beyond anything we hoped a wedding photographer would bring to our event. Yaneck and Sasha took the time to get to know us in the months leading up to event, and they felt like old friends by the day of the ceremony and reception. WASIO photography drove from Chicago to Louisville, KY to shoot our engagement session, a sign of their dedication to their profession. The pictures turned out great and we couldn't wait for the wedding day.

On the wedding day, the team of photographers made us feel so relaxed and comfortable the whole time. Our family and friends can't stop commenting on how much fun the photographers were to have around throughout the day! We just received our proofs, and all of the pictures turned out great! Their attention to detail and passion for their work is displayed in each and every photo. What an excellent team of photographers (and a beautiful couple!)!

My wife and I would definitely give WASIO photography the highest of recommendations for any couple looking for the perfect wedding photographers! Their work truly does tell a story in every photo!

WASIO Photography was THE BEST choice for a photographer in the entire wedding industry. Yaneck & Sasha are both wonderful people to work with. They were very personable and welcoming from the very beginning. We met with them at their house, for a brief meeting on their services almost a year before our wedding. It turned into almost a four hour session with two old friends who we knew we couldn't be without. We booked them without hesitation.

Our engagement session was incredible.. At the Art Institute on a day in October that was 40 degrees and very windy, but Yaneck was still able to make us look amazing. The location was perfect, the colors of the leaves on the trees were perfect and Yaneck knew just how to make us work the camera and make the camera love us!

The day of the wedding, they had welcomed a guest photographer, who was a huge fan of Yaneck's, to take pictures of my husband and all the groomsmen and both Yaneck and Sasha concentrated on the maids and me for my bridal preparation. He brought my dress outside of my house and hung it on the gutter to get the best angle. Yaneck is SO talented and creative. Our ceremony was at a Greek Orthodox Church, which is completely different than any other ceremony and they did AN INCREDIBLE job. Our pictures are beautiful and phenomenal. The colors are so vivid and every angle they photographed was flawless. Our location photos are perfect and we couldn't ask for more stunning pictures at our reception

Everyone is raving about our pictures, including the designer of my wedding dress who saw it posted on the WASIO Facebook page! We looked stunning on our wedding day, thanks to the magic of Yaneck and Sasha behind the camera. We love Yaneck and Sasha so much and are thankful to have them as friends. Choosing WASIO was the best choice and I recommend them to everyone!

Wasio Photography was absolutely incredible!!! From our initial yet very personable consultation to their incredible charismatic personalities. My husband and I can not even begin to cover all the wonderful aspects of their work. Yaneck and Sasha were wonderful in their correspondence and we always received responses within a few hours. As a bride planning her wedding that was very helpful. They are both the most caring people who take the time to get to know you and truly care about you. The entire planning process went incredibly smooth. By the time our wedding came and they showed up to take pictures we felt like they were our old friends who we were ecstatic to see. All of our family and friends instantly adored them as well. This made the pictures turn out so natural. As Yaneck was taking pictures he would show us a few and my husband and I were literally taken back by the beauty and talent each one possessed. We have our meeting set up to meet with Yaneck and Sasha to view all of the pictures and we know they will be beautiful and more than we could have ever imagined. They are truly the best!

WASIO photographed my wedding this June in Chicago - they are amazing and could not have done a better job. A lot of my friends have already gotten married - so I took recommendations from them for all of my vendors - except my photographers. I read about WASIO on the knot and after meeting them in person, I knew they were exactly what I wanted for my wedding. Their pictures were absolutely beautiful and I loved the way that they were able to capture special moments from a couples wedding day. They were extremely flexible and even trekked downtown to our rehearsal dinner for an hour to get some group shots. The one thing that I did not appreciate when I hired WASIO is how important it is to be able to feel comfortable with your photographers and to be able to have fun with them. When you think about it, they spend more time with you on your wedding day than anyone else and are there for all your special moments!! Yaneck and Sasha are so easy to get along with and I have to say - the least stressful of all my wedding vendors. Sasha even entertained the flower girl while I was taking my pictures!! I cannot say enough good things about these guys - the pictures turned out amazing and I know I will be looking at them forever.
