We interviewed and then hired Zlatko to photograph our wedding on the recommendation of a family friend who had used him. He is very talented and delivered amazing shots of our special day in July of 2014. Zlatko was very organized, asked for a shot list so no "posed" picture was missed, and then melted into the background and photographed real moments as they unfolded. He captured the emotion of the event, the love in the room, the look in my eye, and the energy on the dance floor. As promised, a selection of proofs were ready a few weeks after the wedding and we are excitedly waiting for the final set to be available in the next few days. The proofs we received were just what we were looking for, and expect the rest will be just as wonderful! Zlatko is soft spoken, yet has an eye for photography that sets him apart from (and above) the rest!

I was attracted by Zlatko's photos on his website when I was searching for a photographer for our wedding. His photos capture emotions and moments so naturally and beautifully. Although the price was over my budget, I couldn't resist but contacted Zlatko (it turns out to be such a right decision). He is very professional and patient and explained to me all the details on the phone and by email. During the wedding day, I didn't pay much attention to Zlatko most of the time and I only discovered later from the photos that he documented various moments so nicely. On the other hand, when he was taking portraits for us, I could feel his strong enthusiasm and patience. And, very importantly, Zlatko has great ideas on where and how to take photos!

After the wedding, Zlatko provided us with a preview of the photos upon our request. I could show the preview to our guests and families and friends who couldn't attend our wedding. Everyone says the photos are great! Later Zlatko send us the full set of photos - much more than what we would expect based on the contract and all wonderful photos!

We are extremely happy with the work. Thanks Zlatko!

We chose Zlatko to be our wedding photographer after looking at perhaps one hundred different photographers’ portfolios online. We were extremely particular about what we wanted: a photographer whose work reflected an understanding that the MOST important thing about a wedding is the fact that everybody you know and love is in a room together for perhaps the one and only time in your life, and you want to capture their laughter and tears and hugs and hilarious dance moves—and you want this more than you want to see your dress fluttering in the wind from fifty different angles. It seemed to me that every photographer’s portfolio had those same clichéd shots, focusing too much on material aspects of the wedding and not enough on the family and guests. Zlatko’s stood out as capturing the human element. Not that we didn’t want any of the other stuff—we did—but it’s a question of proportions. Zlatko brought clarity and seriousness to the task, which made us feel comfortable from the get-go. He was extremely responsive and dedicated, such that we felt totally confident that we could trust him to do the job right. We were not disappointed. He was also a really nice guy and we felt good about having him be a part of our celebration. Most importantly, the photographs were excellent. We got everything from crisp captures of twenty people shaking their booties to subtly composed shots of quieter moments of beauty at the reception. Important note: the lighting at our venue (Angel Orensanz) is very tricky—dark and colorful in a way that is wonderful yet challenging for photos— yet Zlatko somehow managed to deal with it perfectly.

i was VERY particular about finding a photographer. I looked high and low, and was convinced nobody would ever deliver the elegant, beautiful, timeless photos I wanted. And then I met Zlatko. I wish I could attach photos to this review so everybody could see the beauty of his work. My pictures are classic, breathtaking, elegant, and timeless. In addition, every special, intimate moment that my husband and I had on our wedding day, he caught on film, without us EVER knowing he was there. He works in the background, is completely unnoticeable, and quiet. You will NOT notice him until he delivers you these pictures that will take your breath away. Look no further, this is the best photographer you will find. And as an added bonus, he is as wonderful, sweet, and kind as they come. An absolute professional. He listens and takes to heart every one of your wishes, and will deliver exactly what you want. I have never written a review about anything in my life, but Zlatko is the exception! Thank you for all your hard work Zlatko and for giving me pictures I can cherish for a lifetime!

Zlatko is a true professional. Quick to answer emails or phone calls, always punctual and manages to get all the pictures you need in a concise way. My daughter's one wish was to enjoy her wedding and not be tied down with pictures. Zlatko was able to get the pictures we wanted and all of us were able to enjoy the festivities. Her friends dubbed Zlatko "the stealth photographer" you never know he's there but he's everywhere. I love the candid shots that were taken. They are among my favorits.

I chose Zlatko because I loved the photojournalistic style of his pictures, and had also been assured by my wedding planner at the venue that he was so discreet and unobtrusive. He gave us such wonderful pictures, I couldn't be happier. Zlatko was really able to capture the energy, excitement, and emotion of the day. Even though I wanted to avoid taking too many posed photos, the portraits we did do of the families came out great and he was able to get the shots very quickly so we didn't have to spend too much time focusing on them. He was also an absolute joy to work with...always got back to me quickly and was so helpful and professional on the wedding day too. I wish I had another occasion coming up to hire him again!

Zlatko Batistich was the main photographer at our wedding and he did a fabulous job, be it posed couple and family shots or capturing the energy on the dance floor. As an amateur photographer I can honestly say that his photos were outstanding and the way he took photos at the wedding was completely unintrusive. If it weren't for the photos that we received shortly after our a wedding, you would never have known he was there!

As a wedding photographer he was also very responsive to our ideas and suggestions and at every point of the process we were very glad to have chosen him. We wholeheartedly recommend Zlatko to any couple for their wedding!

Zlatko is the ideal photographer – highly responsive, communicative, and accommodating. His photography speaks for itself and covers a wide array of shots. His calm personality is very easy to work with and he captured so many special moments while blending in with our guests. We felt that he really went above and beyond. All photography was completed and distributed within the specifications of our contract. We’ve already recommended Zlatko to several couples and we recommend him to you!

Zlatko was my photographer for my December wedding and he was AMAZING!!!!!! Attentive to details and highly professional - always with a smile! I loved that before he snapped our pictures, he mentioned 'good energy!!', which I felt made the photo experience even better. Everywhere I turned - he was there! I was never searching for him! It was great and my guests only had positive remarks about him. I am still waiting for my photographs - but I know he is fabulous because I saw his work at my cousin's wedding and had to have him!!! Awesome Job, Zlatko!!

Zlatko was everything we were looking for. I wanted a natural, photojournalistic style and we got that but also so much more. Zlatko's photos are an art form with the moments and emotions he captures along with the composition. We could not be more pleased with how our photos turned out. The day of the wedding, Zlatko was very polite and professional. He never invaded our privacy, instead he made us feel at ease and like we were alone in our moments. Thank you...

I can't say enough about Zlatko - he was wonderful! Professional and kind. The pictures from our wedding were beautiful - my dad saw them and said "these look like they should be in Vanity Fair!" His style of photojournalism was exactly what I hoped for; he was able to take lovely, intimate photos without intruding on special moments. If/when my husband and I have a little one, we would love to work with him again.
