Katya Nova Photography
For me, wedding photography was one of the most important parts of the wedding, because at the end of it- that's all you get to take with you when the day is all done. I really wanted to make sure we found someone who we could have a relationship with, and where we weren't just another payday to them. Katya and Rob were just those people. They have a unique talent for capturing life through the lense, and making it fun as well!! We had our engagement photos done by them about 6 months before the wedding, and I remember thinking- 'If this is any indication of what the wedding photos will be, we are going to have some amazing pictures' and that we did!! Our photos are spectacular, and I know I'm a little biased becasue they are my wedding photos- but take one look at their portfolio and you'll see what I see. They are very talented photographers who take the time to get to know each and every one of their clients on a personal level, and make them feel as though they are their top priority at all times. They are two young people who love eachother and love what they do. Katya and Rob are fantastic, experience, knowledgeable and beautifully creative photographers and people. I can't say enough about them, other than how lucky we feel to have had them document our most special moments.
Katya and Rob photographed our wedding in March 2013 in Punta Cana. Her photographs are just perfect!
We found her after going through lots of websites from photographers that work in Punta Cana and wedding websites. For us the photographs were one of the most important things for the wedding, and we needed to get it right and not just "ok". After seeing Katya's blog and her photographs from other weddings we were just so impressed! They were so different and stunning, we immediately fell in love and wanted the same for our wedding; this is what we got, our photographs are exactly what we wanted.
In terms of communication, it was always good and timely, her emails were clear and informative, from the beginning it was clear what we would get and what were our options, she is really professional!
Katya and Rob are a great couple, they complement each other and it was great to have two photographers working on our wedding day capturing different points of view. During the wedding it felt that they were part of our great friends. Even when things didn't go perfectly they behaved like friends helping us out through everything, we are thankful, and we really appreciated their presence and support!
Choosing Katya Nova Photography for our February 20, 2013 wedding was one of the best choices we made. Katya and Rob really cared about us and went the extra mile to ensure that they captured all the important moments of our day. They are an awesome team and we enjoyed having them at our wedding. Thank you for the amazing photographs - they truly are the most beautiful photos that we have ever had taken of us.
Katya Nova was the best photographers I have ever experience. The personalities were exquisite and the professionalism was extremely high. They made our wedding day and wedding photo moments the best time of our lives. We loved the experience of working with them and our whole day was amazing. Seeing our photos brings us back to that amazing day and shows us how wonderfully they captured each and ever moment. Thanks katya and rob. We love you for everything you did and the experience with you both.
Katya, in a word, was amazing. She is obviously passionate about being a photographer and about capturing weddings. She made both my husband and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera, even though we aren't totally spotlight people. Her pictures speak a million words and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone! I hope to be able to work with her at some point in the future!! We made the perfect choice in choosing Katya!
It all started with an extensive research for a photographer that will shoot our destination wedding in Punta Cana. We were lucky to find Katya Nova Photography and by looking at their work on their website, we knew this was the kind of style we wanted to have. Then we had the opportunity to skype with Katya and after 2 minutes of chatting with her, we knew they were the ones..
We fell in love with this couple from the first time we saw them. They transmitted a peaceful and positive vibe from the get go.
Katya and Rob are not only extremely professional but they involved themselves to the very maximum to make us feel very comfortable and completely pleasant with their work.
They were not only our photographers, they were our guides, motivators and friends. They went out of their way and beyond to deliver the story of our love in the most important day of our lives.
Despite the fact that we were extremely exhausted after our wedding reception, we were excited to wake up at 5:30am to shoot sunrise thrash the dress session. It was one of the most beautiful settings I've ever experienced, being surrounded by ocean, sand, an incredible sky, love, cool music (provided by katya's boom box) and these two made this moment totally worth it.
It is common to say... you got to love what you do, to do it right... These two are amazingly in love with their work, with their couples and with each other and all of it is projected with their presence and the overall result of their work.
We are totally in love with our pictures and happy and thankful to call Katya & Rob friends.
Katya and Rob are AMAZING photographers in more ways than just taking some pretty pictures. They truly captured the moments and feelings of our wedding day....it is artistry at its finest. Not only is their photography amazing, but Katya helped me with planning our destination wedding...since she herself lives in Punta Cana and has planned her own destination wedding there, I trusted her opinion and suggestions... she helped me make important decisions from afar. On the wedding day, they are a huge asset by bringing top knotch professionalism and positive energy with them.
I've never had such a connection with with a complete stranger. Although we had never met until the day of my wedding, it felt like I knew Katya all my life, and it was as if I was meeting up with an old friend. I was all a ball of nerves the night before the wedding, she left me her cell number in a email and asked to call her if anything; and I did!. We talked for a good 15-20 minutes, and she completely calmed me down. Taking pictures with her, you felt so comfortable, and she was extremely professional. Her husband Rob spent time taking pictures of the groomsmen, and they felt the same way!
Katya & Rob are more than just photographers, they are such True Artists, and their passion shows through their quality of work.
Through our 'homework' they assigned us, and how they remembered everything we answered demonstrates just how much time & effort they INVEST IN THEIR CLIENTS to sincerely know and understand them. To them, It isn't just about taking a photograph, its about capturing the essence of the love that is shared between 2 people, and their families. The way they can convey the moment, the movement, the emotions through their photographs, the warmth, the love, is something that I just haven't seen anywhere else. Every photograph, and I mean EVERY photograph is just gorgeous, timeless.
I would highly recommend this amazing team team. We will definitely be using them again!
I was a bridesmaid in my friend's destination wedding at Now Larimar in Punta Cana where Katya & Rob were the phenomenal photographers. I highly recommend them because of how extremely professional and personable they are. Their photos are unique, intimate and impeccable.
The night before the wedding Katya calmed down the bride, Lisa and reassured her that everything would flow smoothly. As we got ready, Katya blended in and we didn't even notice that she was there capturing all the candid moments of the hustle and bustle.
Rob was fantastic too with his cool demeanor to keep the groom, Mike, composed and comfortable. The guys immediately adopted him.
The couple truly captured the essence and mood of the wedding. The photoshoot on the beach was so fun! They brought portable speakers and blasted Empire State of Mind as our soundtrack. Strolling down the beach with us, Katya & Rob made it so enjoyable!
I was blown away by the pictures. The newlyweds looked like models or celebrities by bringing out their natural beauty. The finishing touches, the selection of shots and the still photos that looked like the background was still moving proved that Lisa & Mike chose the perfect photographer couple to preserve that special day.
Katya & Rob are not only a wonderful pair of photographers, but their positive loving vibes are infectious. The newlyweds would not stop raving about how spectacular their first look went. From the pre-wedding homework given to the bride and groom, Katya & Rob chose a song special to the couple - "Somersault by Zero 7". As it played in the back, hearing it and seeing each other as bride and groom for the firs time touched their hearts and moved everyone to tears.
Katya & Rob take exceptional care of their clients and deliver flawless and timeless photos!
Katya was wonderful to work with, months before our wedding they wanted to get to know us and what made us tick as a couple. One thing we didn't want in a photographer was basic cookie cutter images. We wanted spur of the moment candid images that reflected who we are as a couple and reflected how much we truly love each other. Katya definitely captured all of that!!
Katya got to spend several days with us at the villa before the wedding, there were times I didn't even know she was taking photos of us. She's very stealthy with her camera! Being able to spend time with Katya before the wedding was wonderful, it truly felt like I had known her for a long time and that she was always a part of our group.
We didn't have a wedding party, on the day of the wedding Katya was very helpful in making sure everything was set up just right and went smoothly for us.
Our pictures reflect the emotion of the wedding day and the days leading up to the big day. Everytime I look at our pictures I cry, the emotion and love feel like they jump out of the images.
Our expectations for our wedding photos was definitely exceeded! I would recommend Katya to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! I would definitely love to work with her again!!
There are so many amazing things I could say about Katya and Rob's team I'm not sure where to begin. The minute you meet them not only do you feel the love between this wife and husband team, but you can sense the amazing way they see the world. To have that vision directed at you and your partner on your wedding day is a true gift - and the images they give you are proof of the beautiful way they see the world - and you on that day.
As a fan of Katya's work long before I met my Husband to Be I couldn't wait for the day I found true love so that she could document it - and she exceeded every one of my high expectations. Having her there with you every step of your way on that day is like having an old friend with you, who just happens to be documenting everything through her lens. My husband is not the most photogenic but we both instantly felt at ease and comfortable posing in front of Katya and Rob and the outcome was truly magical. When looking through the finished edited pictures I felt like I was reliving the amazing day and that she captured the love and feelings in the room.
The biggest favor you can do for yourself is investing in an amazing photogorapher - and I couldn't recommend a better one.
Katya and Rob are just the best photographers to have on such an important/ potentially stressful day. They take what they do so seriously and we felt like they invested so much of themselves into our day! I honestly dont know how they do it, they pour themselves into their work and the result is totally and completely perfect, and unique to the individual.
Choosing Katya as our wedding photographer was the best decision we made for our wedding. She perfectly orchestrated our special day! She's such a kind, compassionate, loving, and talented lady. Her work is unbelievable! 4 months after our wedding we're still getting many compliments on our pictures. We can't say enough about her. She's truly one of a kind.
We loved Katya Nova photography. She was helpful and directed us very well. During a stressful moment, Katya was able to calm me down and make me happy so that it showed in my photos!
Katya and Rob were great. If you're looking for photographers that work with you and your likes and are creative, they are the people to work with. We know that our photos are unique and genuine and we love that! Highly recommended!
We first met Katya and Rob in Punta Cana, where they were hired as our friend's wedding photographers.
After seeing how professional and passionate they were about their jobs, we knew that they would be a perfect fit for us as well. Katya and Rob were kind enough to join us in Banff (Alberta), where our wedding was held. They were fun and creative with lots of our shots and were very open minded to suggestions.
Katya has the ability to capture unforgettable moments through her craft, and Rob will never miss a beat with his candid shots. We highly recommend them!! As a matter of fact, we already did, twice :)

We got married at the Jellyfish Restaurant on July 21st, 2012. We knew we had the perfect venue but were in search of the perfect photographer.. Needless to say we found her. Katya brought the most loving, positive, bright energy to our special day. She is extremely proffesional and within moments of meeting her, i felt so calm and serene. all of my guests loved her and she got some fabulous candid shots of everyone.. Some of my most cherished pictures are that of the candid ones :) She is truly an artist and master at her craft. I can say..There was not one bad picture.. The artistic elements, combined with capturing "the moment" was so perfect! when I look back at my wedding photos.. I am literally transported back to that day . I want to renew my vows at the same place in Punta Cana. hoping katya and Rob will be avaliable to document that day as well! ;).
I highly recommend Katya and Rob! Trust me- they will surpass all of your expectations!!!
We used Katya Nova as our photographer for our destination wedding in Punta Cana. Working with Katya was amazing from start to finish. She is very committed to each wedding she photographs and provides a unique personal experience to every couple. Her pictures are absolutely beautiful. She did a great job creating classic stunning wedding portraits, but also captured all the authentic spontaneous moments during the reception. I would definitely recommend her. I couldn't have asked for more.
Katya Nova Photography was one of the best parts of our destination wedding experience. They were amazing!
Katya and Rob were amazing!!! The best part was not only that we loved them but our guests kept coming up to us after the wedding raving about how awesome they were. The photos came out beautifully and you can definitely tell the love and care that Katya and Rob put into them. They work very hard to document your special day and make sure that they capture all the little moments. My husband and I are a little camera shy but Katya and Rob knew just what to do to make us feel comfortable so that the photos came out natural looking.
My fiancé and I had the pleasure of working with Katya Nova Photography at the Sanctuary Resort and Spa in Punta Cana in May 2012 for our engagement/intimate photo session.
Katya's work is exceedingly unique; she balances soulful romance and a certain European sexiness absent from traditional/”stock” wedding/engagement photography.
Katya and her husband Rob truly took the time to get to know us as a couple, and worked hard to make us feel beautiful and comfortable behind the lens, which in turn helped them produce a plethora of beautiful images that captured our love in a timeless, sensual way.
Katya Nova Photography turns ordinary moments into extraordinary memories; whenever we go through the photos from our shoot, we fall in love all over again.
Katya & Rob are a fantasic due! I truely believe that her being my wedding photgrapher made my day even more special. She took many pictures so I had alot to choose from. She also did a great job editing my pics so they were completely unique!
Katya and Rob make a wonderful team! They are fun, relaxed and very easy to be around! We loved our entire expirience with them! Our wedding day was amazing and Katya and Rob captured all out memories with ease. At the end of our wedding we felt that we had two new amazing friends. Once we saw our photos we could not believe how much we loved them! If you are planning a wedding in Punta Cana book this team for your day! You won't regret it!
I generally don't give 5 stars to people but Katya and Rob went the extra mile to capture my big day. I am forever grateful to them and will recomend them to anyone!!!!
I think I will be thanking Katya till I live and I still would not thank her enough for amazing photos. When we posted few pictures online, I think everybody forgot for the minute that we have gotten married and was just looking/commenting on how beautiful the pictures are(and the bride of course) :)
Communication couldn't have been any better either. Exchanged couple emails at the beginning, then skyped few times and I was worry free, well almost :)
We had some freedom with time, and Katya and Rob where flexible and accommodating that we could wait for perfect day, as couple days prior were a little bit cloudy.
During the shooting Katya and Rob made us feel relaxed and allowed us to enjoy and take-in whole atmosphere...They made us feel as if we've been best buddies for ages.
You have captured our special event and made it even more so memorable, not just for us, but for our friends and families as well when we “delivered” the news back home.
You, Rob, Irina and Ivan are great team… Please do not stop and do not change anything, it’s perfect!!! Cheers and thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Katya and Rob were such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire wedding process. I felt as if I had known Katya forever by the time wedding day rolled around and I actually got to meet her for the first time! It was as if I was hanging out with one of my bridesmaids, only she was snapping pictures of me in a white dress! Not only are they so much fun to work with and a pleasure to be around on the most exciting/important day of your life, but their pictures are AMAZING! You will be thrilled with the results and grinning ear to ear as you look through the pictures and remember your wedding day.
Katya simply makes the camera an extension of her own being.
She can view her subjects and perfectly capture the moment regardless of what the setting is able to provide.
Uncanny is her ability to capture the absolute 'moment'.
There is no 'photoshopping', there is no contrived or cliched poses...just perfect moments captured perfectly.
Katya and Rob did an amazing job on my wedding photos. They are such a sweet couple, they made the whole experience fun and took away much of the stress of our big day. The photos surpassed what we had hoped for. They captured the day (and our love) perfectly. I would highly recommend to any bride!
Katya and Rob are a fantastic team and there photographs are the best! I would recommend them to anyone getting married in the DR or anywhere in the world for that matter! They are fun to spend the day with too and help to put any wedding day jitters at ease.
Outside of marrying each other, Katya was the absolute best choice we could have made for our wedding.
She is amazing; you should book her as a photographer before the whole world realizes how awesome she is and you no longer have a hope to work with her. (it's going to happen, and soon)
I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have had Ms Katya Nova photograph my wedding. I would not have had it any other way. She is a remarkable individual that has an amazing passion for life and it shows in her work. Each and every one of her photographs capture a moment in which no other medium of media could capture. Each of her shots show passion and debt as if she knows all her clients on a personal level. She has the amazing artistic talent of bringing out the best of anyone through her photographs (which is not always easy!)
If you want amazing, timeless, priceless photographs, do not hesitate to use her services. After all, this is the most important day of your life. You can't just have anyone photographing you when you look your best! She will be delighted to capture and preserve this special day for you, when you say "I do" in front of your family and friends.
Hello Katya daaaaaarling! I can't believe its almost been a year already!!!
Wes and I still need to go through the photos and pick our top faves for our album.

Katya is an amazing photographer. She captured our day so naturally and beautifully. She was easy to work with and fit right in with our family and bridal party. It was as if we had a long time friend photographing our special day. I would use her again in a heartbeat!
