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.

We looked at a few photographers to meet with and Yaneck stood out among all of them. We looked at his work and loved it. We read his reviews and saw that everyone loved him. He is very personable and fun to work with. Yaneck and Sasha make a great team. They are fun, yet professional.

I felt very comfortable getting to know him in the engagement session and by the time the wedding came around they became friends. Yaneck was more than accomadating in our engagement session, (where we had multiple outfit changes).

Our family and friends still rave about our save the date magnets, we highly recommend them as Yaneck does awesome design work. Some of our favorite engagement photos were different ideas that Yaneck suggested.

As for the wedding day, Yaneck, Sasha, and Andrew were all on time and very personable with our guests. We couldn't be happier with how the day went. It was pretty chilly outside and he knew what shots to do, and was able to make it painless for the entire bridal party.

Yaneck went out of his way to capture all the important moments of our day--he even stayed later into the night to accomplish this.

Yaneck has a great vision and we can't wait to see the rest of our wedding pictures.

One of the best decisions my fiancé and I made was choosing Wasio Photography for our wedding day! Yaneck and Sasha took amazing photos and really helped make our day feel special right from the start! All four of us had so much fun during the engagement shoot and gave us a chance to get to know one another so on the wedding day we seemed like old friends. Both of them showed up at least an hour early on the wedding and blended in perfectly, taking photos while us girls were getting glamoured up. Yaneck occasionally suggests very subtly to people ways to stand and move but at the same time allows them to act natural, and all the while Sasha is cracking her jokes and making everyone feel right at home. The resulting photos look non-staged with naturally smiling people! This really is a hard combination to get! Our final pictures are everything I hoped for and more, and I look forward to pulling out my wedding album in future years and looking with great pride at our perfectly captured moments. We had so much fun with Yaneck and Sasha through the entire process, and would highly recommend Wasio Photography for all wedding couples!

I've known Yaneck for over a decade. I share his love for photography (but not his skills) so I have been following and supporting his photographic endeavors over the years. I had once, somewhat jokingly, told him that if I ever got married, I wanted him to take our photos.

I recommended him for my step-sister’s wedding and we were all very impressed with his work. A couple of years later after I got engaged, there was no doubt in my mind that I would ask Yaneck to photograph our wedding – not just for the beautiful photographs he takes, but also because of the passion he has for what he does, his technical skills, and the way he interacts with each of his clients with the utmost professionalism and genuine care about their big day.

To be honest, we (I) changed our wedding day from July 14, 2012 to July 7, 2012 solely because Yaneck was unavailable that weekend. And we also chose Yosemite Park, described to me as one of the most beautiful places in the world, because I wanted to use Yaneck’s skills to the max.

The photos came out beautiful and the photo shoot was creative and unique. We've had so many glowing compliments on our photos and I am thrilled that we had Yaneck photograph our big day. We kept the wedding small, but I wanted fabulous pictures to cherish for the rest of our lives.
I would recommend Wasio Photography, hands down, not just because Yaneck is a great friend, but also because both my husband and I are 110% thrilled with the output and the experience.

Thank you Wasio Photography for providing us with wonderful memories that will stay with us forever!

Wasio photography was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding day! Yaneck and Sasha make an incredible team. They are very energetic, happy, kind and professional at the same time.

On our wedding day I remember sitting by a window getting my makeup done and looking out and seeing Yaneck and Sasha were in front of the house earlier than we had planned. We are very pleased with their service and all the work they put in to capture every moment.

We have beautiful engagement and wedding photos! Every time I look at the photos it puts a big smile on my face. Yaneck and Sasha did a Great job on capturing all the special moments in our big day!

We hired Wasio Photography for our wedding on June 2nd, 2012. My wife and I interviewed several wedding photographers, as we felt pictures were one of the most important parts of our big day. We met with Yaneck the lead photographer at his home in Chicago and from the moment we met him, we were extremely comfortable with him. Yaneck started by building a relationship with Stephanie and I rather than treating us as potential new business.
We all know that its great if the photographer is a “nice” guy, but what is really important is the quality of the pictures! After having our photos taken at Salvage One in the West Loop, we knew we made the right decision for our big day. My wife Stephanie chose this great location due to it wonderful antiques and art. Stephanie has a great eye for art and one of her best talents is capturing great photography settings. Stephanie knew with the right photographer this would make for a great location. The photography made Stephanie and I look like movie stars and Yaneck’s talent with the background and setting was incredible. Yaneck’s professionalism and treating us as friends made the experience all the more enjoyable. After the session we all went for a glass of wine and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon.
As a result of Yaneck’s incredible work during our engagement session, both Stephanie and I were extremely excited about our wedding day and our pictures. Stephanie and I chose the Cuneo Gardens for our wedding location, mainly because of their beautiful grounds. Stephanie once again knew with the right photographer this would make for beautiful pictures. I must say Yaneck and his team did not disappoint, as our pictures are absolutely amazing. The pictures capture the beautiful grounds, but more importantly to me capture how beautiful my wife Stephanie looked on our special day. Yaneck and his team were also able to get some of the most candid moments of the wedding and our guests. Anytime, we want to relive that wonderful day, all we have to do is review our photos. . Once again, Yaneck’s professionalism and treating us as friends made the experience all the more enjoyable.
When you combine Yaneck’s personal attributes and his talent for photography, you have the perfect combination for a wedding photographer. I HIGHLY recommend Yaneck and Wasio photography.

We hired Yaneck of Wasio Photography for our June 2nd wedding because it was not only talent to take beautiful pictures that we were looking for in a photographer but also professionalism, personality and compassion. Yaneck has all of these qualities and more. We were impressed from the moment we met him by his artistry and his friendly demeanor. Your wedding is a wonderful yet stressful day and your photographer is going to be with you every step of the way. It is essential that you enjoy being with this person and that they don’t add to the stress but relieve it. That is why Yaneck is so amazing. Not only does he have a fantastic personality (someone you are more than happy to spend 12 hours with) but he cares just as much about your big day as you do. He works really hard to bring beauty to every moment and he does a wonderful job of making you look your best. If you want someone to capture the excitement, joy and beauty of you and your entire day, while keeping you in great spirits, Yaneck is your man. We are very happy that we decided to hire Wasio Photography and we would highly recommend him for your special day.

We had the best photographer ever for our wedding! Yaneck was amazing to work with. Throughout the whole process, he was always willing to go the extra mile. From our engagement shoot to our wedding, we had so much fun shooting with him and had total confidence that our photos would be great. Yaneck loves what he does and it shows in his work. He's professional, but still fun and has an eye for what will make a beautiful photo. He was the best vendor at our wedding and has become a friend. We love all of our wedding pictures and have no idea how we will narrow them down.

When researching wedding photographers, Wasio Photography was the one site I kept returning to. For our intimate wedding, we chose Yaneck to be our photographer with little notice (or time to meet prior to), yet ended up with beautiful pieces of art, that we will treasure for life! He captured us as a couple well, with a mix of photo styles/locales, just as we requested. Working with Yaneck was a pleasure, as he is professional, yet has a charm that puts brides and grooms at ease. Despite an especially windy day, Yaneck never lost his enthusiasm, and put his creative vision to the test, using the elements and his equipment to his (and our) advantage. If you are looking for a talented photographer, who also happens to be a great person to have around, choose Wasio Photography!

I thought I would never find the "perfect" photographer - that is until I came across WASIO Photography. Yaneck is very professional, personable, full of great ideas, and most of all a very talented photographer. He did an amazing job on both our engagement session and wedding day pictures and made my husband and myself look like and feel like celebrities. I smile each and every time I look at the beautiful pictures that he took. Yaneck pays special attention to detail and has a great eye for editing. He is truly one of the most talented photographers out there. I would without a question recommend WASIO Photography to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer.

While not having interacted with photographers on too many occasions until getting married, I would highly recommend Wasio Photography to family and friends alike. They got to know us as individuals in order to show our personalities and our story through their talent. They were able to capture our special day without being noticed by us or our guests. The quality of the photos is the most important aspect of hiring any photographer, and their eye is spot on. Thanks again for everything Wasio!

My fiancé and I were looking for a unique and talented photographer for our wedding day and we are very happy we picked Wasio Photography. Yaneck and Sasha were both very professional but also personable which made it easy to feel relaxed and at ease during the engagement shoot and on the wedding day. Yaneck has an eye for unique and interesting angles while shooting which gives the photos a natural elegance while at the same time seeming less framed and more spontaneous. Sasha is amazing at helping everyone feel excited and at ease (she is a master at off the cuff jokes), and her jovial personality causes people to smile while laughing instead of the normal fake smile. This truly is one of the best qualities in all the photos as the entire wedding party looks genuinely happy. Yaneck and Sasha made us feel like we were friends rather than clients and their passion for wedding photography is obvious. We recommend Wasio photography to everyone!
