    Dmitry was amazing to work with. He'll definitely be our family photographer for years to come. Our wedding day pictures cam out so amazing, I want every single one of them printed. And so many friends and websites have requested his contact info for use in the future. His response time is outstanding, so if you are looking for an amazing/professional photographer Dmirty is definitely the one to pick!

    Wow! I'm speechless!!! Words can't explain how satisfied I am with Dmitry! He is extremely professional and when I was stressed or nervous he always made me smile for my pictures! He is the best I have ever worked with! I can't wait for someone I know to get married because I would highly recommend Dmitry!!!

    Dmitry is very professional. He know how to put people at ease, even if they're not comfortable around cameras. He did a great job of getting us through our posed pictures for our wedding - moving things along efficiently. He's also able to be a fly on the wall. I vaguely remember him being present at the wedding reception - I know he was around getting wonderful pictures and he even made sure that we got pictures with all the tables at the reception - an idea we'd mentioned when we first met with him, but would've forgotten (and missed out on) if he hadn't gently reminded us. He seamlessly set up his equipment and also found wonderful spots to take our posed photos. I had had lists of photo ideas printed out, but I didn't need them - he took care of everything!

    Let me start off by saying that Dmitry Rogozhin is an amazing photographer!! We got married in August of 2013. Dmitry and his assistant were on time and very professional. One of my worst fears was that the photographer would be late and would potentially miss sweet photo moments before the ceremony. But there was no worry with Dmitry, he was great!
    He started off by taking some groom photos along with all the groomsmen. He was very understanding, giving me the time I needed to get ready before taking bride pictures. Not once did I feel rushed or pushed in any way. The photos during the ceremony were beautiful! By having him and his second photographer there we were able to capture the same moment at completely different angles. It was wonderful to be able to choose from such a variety of photos.
    After the ceremony we headed outside to a courtyard to get some family photos before the reception. Dmitry knew we had to be at the reception at a certain time and was always conscious of the time he was taking. He kept things going at a very good pace, but didn't try to hurry the special moments that we were having with our family. We were able to take individual portraits with all of our guests, and they came out wonderful!
    After the courtyard photos we headed to the reception, I'm not sure how Dmitry got there before us...but when we arrived at the venue he was already there ready to take pictures of us getting out of the car and he had already been upstairs taking still life photos of the dining room. We had the reception in Redondo Beach, CA at the harbor so we wanted to take some photos of us walking on the deck. These photos I think are my favorite. They are of just me and my husband, walking, holding hands, looking at each other, and smiling. It just seemed so natural and effortless.
    The photos at the reception were wonderful, I love photos that capture real life and aren't incredibly posing. Dmitry got amazing photos of all the family laughing, dancing, and just celebrating. It was amazing to see moments from the reception that I wasn't able to see firsthand.
    Another great thing about Dmitry was his communication. He is very quick to respond to emails and it wasn't long after the wedding that we received the user name and password to view our photos online. I will definitely use Dmitry’s services in our next big event.

    Dmitry and his wife Natasha were more than what we hoped for on our special day! We are excited to see all of our pictures! You guys are awesome!!!

  • 5/5 stars September 15, 2013

    Dmitry was absolutely wonderful. He makes you feel very comfortable and is very innovative in finding the perfect picture for location. He is very accommodating and thoughtful. Anyone who uses Dmitry will not be disappointed. We are so glad we picked him.

  • 5/5 stars August 12, 2013

    My experience with Dmirty couldn't have been better. He met my girlfriend and I on the beach and she was extremely excited that we were getting family photos. He made us feel very comfortable. While we were getting our pictures taken his wife was around the corner setting up our picnic, my girlfriend still had no idea. When we made it over that way she realized what was going on. She said yes and kept stressing how everything felt like a fairytale ending! It couldn't have been possible without Dmitry and his wife.

  • 5/5 stars August 10, 2013

    We headed out to Malibu to meet Dmitry for our family photo
    shoot. We are so glad we hired Dmitry. He carries professionalism
    In an easy going way. We Love the fact that he's not shy when it comes to shooting away, just to capture that perfect moment. He is truly an artist. We are thankful to have met him and will Definitely be shooting with Dmitry in the near future.

  • 5/5 stars August 9, 2013

    My experience with Dmitry was absolutely fabulous. I was nervous especially since I have never done this before. But he was funny and has a great personality and it put me at ease. He also gave great direction and was very patient. The pictures that I saw were great! I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

  • 5/5 stars July 8, 2013

    Very professional, easy to work with, flexible to what we wanted, made the day that much better. Will be recommending to everyone I know!

  • 5/5 stars June 25, 2013

    We hired Dmitry to photograph our daughter's baptism and reception. What impressed us first was his punctuality and professional appearance. When we entered the church, he was already there taking pictures and was proactive in speaking with the coordinator about the restrictions the church had. During the ceremony he respectfully adhered to those guidelines, while still getting lots of shots from many different perspectives. He was good at anticipating and initiating photo ops and coordinating large group shots....all with a gentle, pleasant, professional demeanor. We can't wait to see the final photos.

  • 5/5 stars June 12, 2013

    My husband and I hired Dmitry to photograph our wedding in May. We had had several leads on photographers through friends and relatives all fall through and about 1.5 months before our wedding we still didn't have a photographer. I found thumbtack and put in a bid for services. Both my husband and I loved the photographs on Dmitry's site. So we hired him and we are so glad we did!

    He was very professional and worked with us get formal portraits of all of our family at our church before the wedding ceremony and then took a long time after with me and my husband taking pictures at our reception venue, that he had scouted before the wedding!

    Also my husband and I don't normally take good photos because we can't relax, but Dmitry's demeanor was so relax and calm that we were both relaxed and you can tell in the photos!

    I highly recommend Dmitry and you can't beat the value!!!

  • 5/5 stars May 26, 2013

    Dmitry is a great artist. He has a special eye for photography. My daughter did both pre-wedding and wedding pictures with him and they turned out beautifully. I would definitely hire him for any job in the future.

  • 5/5 stars May 20, 2013

    Did a great job! Such a keen eye for catching those special moments. Our wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous, we couldn't be happier! Thanks again!!

  • 5/5 stars May 10, 2013

    Dmitry was our wedding photographer and he did absolutely amazing! We just received our photos back a couple weeks ago and they are all breathtaking! The value of his service is amazing for the quality of service you receive. He was incredibly professional and very patient with my crazy family. He knew exactly how to position everyone to be sure the photos came out perfect. He was very responsive the entire time leading up to the wedding with any questions we had and was flexible with any changes. Everyone felt so comfortable around him and his assistant. Thank you Dmitry for such gorgeous photos my husband and I will cherish for life. :)

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2013

    We haven't done the session yet, but Dmitry has been very accommodating! A great quality to start with! Can't wait to see the pictures!

  • 5/5 stars April 24, 2013

    My husband hired Dmitry for his marriage proposal. He was hiding in the bushes and captured all the moments. His pictures were so breathtaking, that we hired him again for our wedding! He is very creative in his work, and makes sure you get the most beautiful pictures. We highly recommend Dmitry, and will definitely work with him again in the future!!

  • 5/5 stars March 30, 2013

    I truly can't express in words how blessed my husband and I are to have found Dmitry in our search to find a photographer for our wedding in Malibu in march. He provided us with an extremely professional and detailed proposal for his services and surpassed our expectations when we saw the final results. Our wedding day was a complete success thanks to his natural ability to capture every detail of our ceremony with a naturally unique style.

  • 5/5 stars January 26, 2013

    Dmitry was amazing! If I could add another star to his rating, I would! I had a small wedding and only asked for a photographer for one hour to capture the most important moments. Dmitry was early to the site, professional, and extremely knowledgable in regards to taking pictures and setting up poses. He was patient with all of my difficult family members and took more photos than we had even asked him to. He impressed me with his knowledge in regards to how poses would look on camera and how to change the body to better fit the photo. His photos are beautiful and i am so grateful that he was my photographer. I am still blown away by his work for my small time wedding. Thank you Dmitry!

  • 5/5 stars July 26, 2012

    Dmitry did an amazing job photographing my Baby Shower!

    He's incredibly professional and polite. Blends in with the crowd. Everyone felt super comfortable.

    After getting the pictures I was blown away. They are amazing!
    All of the guests are super impressed too.

    I have a feeling we'll use him for other events many times in the future.
    I'm recommending him to everyone I know!

  • 5/5 stars June 10, 2012

    Dmitry was on time to the wedding and was a wonderful person to work with was very patient with everyone and did a great job directing us all for the pictures.

  • 5/5 stars April 12, 2012

    Dmitry was very kind and accommodating. He cared about my interests and made me feel comfortable. He was also able to hook me up with a wonderful make up artist. I would recommend Dmitry to others and use his services again.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. It's not a job for me. This might sound cliche, but it's my lifestyle.
Nowadays when photography became an everyday thing for so many people, who can easily create pictures with their phones or other gadgets, a lot of people don't value professionals like they did before.
Only until people realize that professional photographer is not the fancy equipment, that anybody can buy.
There is much more behind it: experience and knowledge of making people look beautiful in the photographs and feel happy during the shoot along with knowing the most complimentary ways to show the natural beauty of every single person in the photograph.
Not even speaking of long-lasting memories...
