"My partner and I hired Boris to shoot our elopement at San Francisco City Hall in December of 2019. I was impressed from our first exchange as he prioritized getting to know us over logistics and payment. We set up a FaceTime to talk about plans but spent most of the call chatting about how we met and our journey as a couple. His genuine curiosity was really touching.
As for the big day, Boris gave clear direction and was endlessly patient as we were both a little nervous. His familiarity with the building was immensely helpful for framing/available light. We were very happy with the variety of photos he captured in two hours. He gave us his undivided attention and focus. The images arrived via a password protected lightbox within a week. We needed one of the images retouched and Boris made it happen under a very tight deadline. He is a gentleman and a pleasure to work with! I recommend him wholeheartedly."

"Boris was everything we wanted for our wedding photos! He let us do our own thing and found secret moments we didn't even know existed. His energy is so calming, and he has the most incredible eye for real, pure, and true emotions. I never felt staged, and awkward; he let us just be ourselves. He was quick to respond during the planning process, always willing to discuss options and ideas, and he was never "in the way" on the day of. Working with Boris was perfect. I can't recommend him enough!"

"Boris is awesome! If I needed a photographer for another important life event, I would hire Boris in a heartbeat. My wife and I asked Boris to photograph our wedding. During initial phone conversations Boris was kind, understanding, and accommodating. He was willing to work with our untraditional event and be flexible with his hours and terms. During the event, Boris was a pleasure to work with. His calm demeanor made the day less stressful, and he made sure to get in lots of great shots and accommodate requests for various poses or locations that we asked for. He even stood in a tree to get a big group shot, putting himself in slight danger! Yesterday we just received the wedding pics and were blown away. The lighting, framing, shot selection... everything was fantastic. He caught so many great moments that I myself didn't see, and the couple shots he took ended up looking far more beautiful than I would have imagined. I tend to be somewhat picky and opinionated about what makes great photography, and I'm so glad that Boris exceeded my expectations. You won't regret hiring him!"

I'm not sure if Susan and I have expressed how much we love our photos to you. You and your wife did an outstanding job!!!!! Susan and I couldn't be happier. We were particularly pleased with the "story" aspect that you captured. We also love the way that you treated the photos. Had a modern fairytale feeling to it. The colors are slightly muted but still have vibrance! Looking through the photos they really tell the story of the whole evening. You got great photo's of the guests reacting to fun things happening and great shots of our ceremony. That space was small and awkward for a photographer but you guys really nailed it. The tea ceremony picture were some of the favorites and an important part of the ceremony to capture. Once again, Thank you so much for your creative eye and patience. It was a pleasure working with both of you and will highly recommend you to anyone.

"Boris captured our wedding in Morgan Hill this summer and we couldn't be more thrilled with his work and our time together. From the beginning, we felt he was just as excited as we were about our special day and made a special effort to get to know us ahead of our wedding day. We loved his portfolio and knew the traditional shot list and aesthetic he captures, so we let him do his thing. This was such a great approach as Boris floated around and got candids of our time with family and all our special moments, but also accommodated family requests of portraits with us. He was flexible as he saw great photo ops and was happy to listen to suggestions from my husband, who got super into the photography thanks to Boris's easy going nature and professionalism. It felt like having a member of the family with us for the day, he blended so seamlessly and captured such personal moments. When we received our digital album we were in love with all the shots! It was a treat to relive the day through his lens and see all the small details we had spent so much time planning on in the lead up. We LOVED our time with Boris and his work and cannot recommend him enough for your photography needs."

"Boris, we've just looked at these on my phone as we are at the airport. We are BLOWN away! You've truly captured us, our lives, who we are as a couple. Thank you so much!!"

"Boris was awesome! Not only was he fun and laid back, his photography was fantastic. We loved all of our photos from our wedding day!

"Boris is the best! He was our wedding photographer at San Francisco City Hall in November last year, and I'm still so glad my husband found him! Boris knows his trade, and this means you'll not only get perfectly executed pictures, but also guidance by someone who knows how such an occasion can make you nervous. We're not the kind of people who had spent a lot of time to think about how we wanted to pose for our pictures before, and he helped us ease into the process. The result are pictures that are sometimes really intimate, and sometimes focus more on composition, the perfect mix! We enjoy looking at the pictures a lot, and everybody who's seen them has loved them. We both like Boris' no-nonsense style a lot - and the price was also more than reasonable. Boris is also an easy to get along with, down-to-earth, funny, friendly and interested personality. I can only highly recommend him!"
