1Artistic PHOTOJOURNALISM & Wedding Photography
Pavel Shpak has a creative, artistic eye towards his photos. Everyone who saw the photos, slideshow, and video have commented that the wedding photos are the best they have seen. Pavel was ready to give us our images within a week of the event, and posted a slideshow of us on his website shortly after. He even gave us a book of pictures from our engagement photo sessions to use as a sign in book for our wedding.
Let me start by saying how exited we were when we got all the pictures and an edited video only 3 days after the wedding. Pavel was true to his word. We have received everything outlined in the package and then some. The video is amazing. Our friends and family just adored it. I especially loved the upbeat highlight in the beginning of the video he had created for us. The pictures were very creative. I didn't know I could look so good. At the beginning I've told Pavel that my fiance and I dont take pictures very well and he assured me that it would all come out gorgeous. He wasn't kidding. I cant thank Pavel enough for everything he has done for us.
Pavel Shpak Photography was the best decision we made from all of our vendors. He answered emails quickly and answered my texts instantly. He made us feel very calm and relaxed during the wedding day. Pavel arrived earlier than expected and was very professional with everyone at the wedding. The best part was the photography itself. I cant stop looking at them, I adore each and every single picture :):):) Pavel took so many great shots, even our relatives from Italy were impressed with the way he works. It took him a few days after the wedding to give us all the pictures.
What more can I say? Amazing pictures, a beautiful album. It was worth every single penny. I recommend Pavel to everyone having their wedding.
The most amazing, artistic, and creative wedding photos!
If you are looking for amazing photos, look no further. Pavel is amazing! Everyone and their sisters have a DSLR nowadays. So if you are looking for a photographer for your event, now more than ever, you need to be able to recognize a photographer with the talent. Please do not just pick some random photographer. There are amazing ones that deserve your money. My husband takes pretty good photos for our family and friends, he is an amateur with a Canon 60D DSLR. So he knows a bit about photography and can tell the difference between an image that has good composition, depth of field, exposure and point of view and one that just doesn’t catch your eye or isn't framed well. So when we were choosing a photographer for our wedding, we looked at the photographer’s portfolio; if we could probably take that photo they are showcasing, then we probably wouldn't want them as our photographer. We wanted someone that could take photos we would never be able to take ourselves. Pavel seems to have a strong background from fashion. Our wedding shoots were fun and he made us feel like supermodels. He is easy to work with and knows how to get what he wants. After seeing his photos, we were impressed, these images look like they came out of a spread from a fashion magazine. He has a clear vision of what he wants so he doesn’t waste time during a very busy day. He knows the shots he needs so his customers will be happy with the end result. We are extremely happy we choose Pavel as our Photographer and that he was available to shoot our wedding. Search no further, hire Pavel, he is the best!
I was looking for a photographer with an artistic eye. I didn't want the same series of family and bridal party pics I could have had any family member or friend take. Pavel was incredible to work with. He was fun and profressional, and brought out the best in everyone involved. His style and unique shots are unparalleled, and I just can't believe how amazing the pictures are from my wedding day. I am SO happy I hired him, and I can guarantee you will be, too.
Pavel was amazing to work with, we had our wedding ceremony in central park and then had a small after party. Pavel was really helpful and worked within our budget. When we were in our search for local NY wedding photographers we were mostly looking for creativity. We chose Pavel Shpak Photography because his work just stood out, we loved that he cared about the photo's and we loved that he uses film to capture weddings, we are FANATICS. Love vintage film! :) Very professional, and was very out going. Captured like a million images. Thank you so, so, much!!!
My wedding was in NY and I must have spent hours pouring over many different wedding photography websites. We didnt know exactly what we wanted but we knew we wanted to feel something in our photo's and our photographer. There is so much out there with all the same poses and props that it all is just eh!
Late in my search I came across Pavel's website and it shows that he really loves what he does and does it with a sense of taste. We had a meeting with him and he was exactly that. The way he explained what he was going to do shows how passionate he is about photography. We had him as the only photographer. He was friendly, professional, and really put us at ease. He blended right in with our small group, and it seemed like he was more of a guest than a professional just doing his job. He helped make our day special and we will be forever grateful for the beautiful pictures! did I mention how gorgeous the pictures were!!!
Thank you so much,
Angelica & Jason
Pavel was amazing for our engagement photo shoot. He put us completely at ease and we are so excited to work with him on our wedding day. We received our photos a week later and they were fantastic.
We are so happy with Pavel and would recommend him to anyone!
We were looking for someone, who can meet our expectations of good photography for our wedding and we found Pavel.
I just have to say - what an amazing photographer! If u ever get the chance to pose for photographs (and of course Pavel will be behind the camera) you will get picture exceeding you imagination of beauty. He has a very unique ability to capture moments on his very own way.
He is very patient with the "motive", advices which pose will look good and makes the most of you.
In the end we got so many wonderful photographs, we still can not decide which one we like best.
Surprisingly, Pavel also made a video film for us, even though we did not ask for. That was his special gift for us and it is indescribable beautiful. We have never seen anything similar to that.
We hopefully will have another chance working again with Pavel to get some more beautiful photos.
Greetings from Germany.

Pavel Rocks! Lets just say I, a film student couldn't be more happy when I found a video guy that shoots on real movie film. In film school we also shot on the same medium and I love the way it looks. We first came to Pavel because of his Photography, we got more pics than we thought we would have. (They are really artistic. We hung about 3 posters already.) Then when we saw he does video too, 8mm video. I knew I had to have my wedding shot just on this. The price was very, very reasonable. Would love to do it again:-) It was a lot of fun, shooting with Pavel. Highly recommended!!!
Pavel did such an amazing job on our honeymoon in NYC. The pics that he took are magazine worthy.
He is such a talented and fun guy to work with. Easy going, flexible and knows exactly how to catch THE moment. I never felt that I was beautiful until I saw the pics. If you are looking for high fashion
artistic images and eyes for details then Pavel is your guy. You will not regret it. His works are a piece of art at its best.
Thank you Pavel for the lifetime memories.

The photos we got are unbelievable! I love the way pavel worked with us. He has a very creative eye, and a genuine love for photographing weddings. Our wedding was in new York at russo's on the bay. Pavel was very educational, and showed us exactly what we wanted to see. The Decor! We wanted to see our lights and colors, the chandeliers, candles. We were not looking for a news paper style photographer, that's blasts a flash at you. I felt relaxed and enjoyed my entire wedding. We loved how candid and photojournalistic pavel was, and also creative. He really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I am really glad I had pavel Shpak photography for my wedding.
Our wedding day would not have been the same without the professionalism, personality, and pure expertise of Pavel!! He took thousands - no exaggeration - of photos for us, and made it really fun! We traveled all over the island of Manhattan getting the most amazing shots with the best of the best backgrounds of the island. Pavel has an incredible eye, and does his job with sheer confidence and ease. The best part is that Pavel is a true photojournalist. We did not want the typical stiff poses and unnatural shots you see in many albums. We wanted it to seem natural and candid. He is truly a master at capturing those moments. If this is the kind of album you want, I highly recommend Pavel!!!!!!
All I can say is wow! Having Pavel photograph my wedding simply a joy. We had so much fun running around the city. I was really looking for a candid, fun, edgy style so it wouldn't look posed and Pavel was so helpful and encouraging. He really is the best. He made it so easy, that we were shooting til midnight. He delivered more than we bargained for. We received our pictures 2 days after the wedding. There are so many amazing pictures. We also had him create a cinematic movie for us and it looks like a Hollywood movie. My husband didn't even think he could look so good. We watched it like 5 times already. Thank you so so much :)
Eyes for detail is amazing! Made work easy for me and knows what he wants when it comes to his images. Would work with him more than once.
Professional and a sheer with to shoot with! He can truly your day like an other!
He is an amazing photographer, very attentive, patient and creative. He does not stop taking pictures! Truly phenomenal!!! I am so lucky to have found him!
He is amazing, everyone continues to ask who took my wedding pictures, do not think twice. Very well worth it!
My husband & I love working with Pavel Shpak. The work that he did for us is just absolutely unbelievable. Between our engagement shots and our final wedding album. We couldn't have chosen a better suited Photographer for our most important day of our lives. We highly recommend Pavel Shpak to anyone. Thank you Pavel for all your hard work. We are so happy for the pictures. 5++++ stars all the way ! ! !
This Pavel, was so awesome, not only as a photographer, but also blending into the fun of our special day! His work is amazing! We were also very pleased, because we mentioned to him that because of Natalie's weight problem, she wanted to make sure there wouldn't be any photos of her making her look bigger than she is...and as any amazingly talented photographer, he was able to honor her request! The photos all looked so fantastic!
Thank You Pavel, and we highly recommend him to anyone who plans to have a memorable wedding and who wants extraordinary photos to remember the day with.
Paval was great to work with, he had a vision and he made it work. He also gave wonderful directions to the model to help his vision come thru so love the outcome and I would love to work with Paval again.
Pavel is truly a wonderful photographer. Love the way he works, he never stopped taking pictures. I love all of them! The black & whites are the best. Thank you SOOO Much!
loved working with pavel he is such a pleasure.... his photos came out amazing just let me say!! anyone who works with pavel is in for a treat... it was an honor to work with him
Really fast production. We booked Pavel for Photo & video and in 2 months we got our albums and video. The video is amazing!
We were so enormously delighted with the amazingly professional and stunningly impressive Journalistic Photography provided for our esteemed colleague's wedding! We hired Pavel because he is "the best of the best" and we knew that this would be money Well Spent! When a fabulous wedding is being orchestrated, you cannot leave anything to inexperienced personnel.
The Wedding Photographer is one of the most important aspects of a memorable, top-drawer wedding! This gentleman is the Leonardo da Vinci of modern day professional wedding photography and is highly recommended! You will be glad you hired Pavel!
I have never felt so welcome and comfortable. He is a really great guy and an amazing photographer!
We had a small wedding. We just wanted great pictures and once we saw Pavel's work we were amazed.
We couldnt have found a better photographer. We adore all of our wedding pictures and the quality of work. It was a pleasure working with him. I recommend Pavel Shapk Photography to everyone :)
I'm one of those who don't feel easy in front of the camera , so I was worried when choosing my photographer...
I actually had fun while being photographed, and the pictures turned out really amazing!
I got digital proofs within 5 days and the album was done in a month!
He also threw in a few extras!
Was the Best photographer! Really made everyone feel comfortable and made it feel like fairytale. Captured a true happpy moment in a persons life!
I was very happy and excited to have the photo session with Pavel and it was a very interesting and inspiring experience for me to work with him.
Pavel is not only a very professional photographer, but also a warm-hearted, creative, easy-going friend with great vision and wisdom who is willing to share his thoughts and give encouragement and advices...
I must say the pictures he took for me are really awesome...I just love them... I wish him all the best and May the God bless him...(:
Words cannot begin to express just how amazing 1Artistic really is. This is more than a photographer/videographer venue. It’s a high-end design firm with such class, style and sophistication that me and all my guests cant stop talking about Pasha’s (the owner) talent. Pasha’s eye for detail and ability to reinvent even the simplest shots into incredible pieces of art is a pleasure to watch and be a part of. My wedding was 3 weeks ago (April 17th) and I already got all my pictures! Amazing!!!!! 1Artistic transformed my wedding day into a one-of-a kind platinum wedding capturing every detail stunningly! Pasha’s professionalism, mastership and artistry is absolutely top notch. They are simply the best at what they do and use only top quality, latest technology. Besides being on time, they are also helpful, pleasant and calming. They were the MOST instrumental part in making me feel like a true bride on my wedding day, capturing every detail and moment to last for years to come. The videos and love story that this team created for our wedding is better than any MTV music clip any day! I will use them again and again for all my events and recommend them to absolutely anyone. They are simply the best, hands down! 1Artistic went above and beyond in every single way and me and my guests will forever remember this day. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
