What an amazing photographer. He did amazing work for us on our family vacation this year in Tahoe. He came to us at the Keys spent several hours with us. The pictures turned out spectacular! We were all so impressed. His partner Marina was awesome too! Thank you for such a great experience! See you next time.

We did a shoot with Leo and Marina at Henry Cowell. They were super communicative with us leading up to our shoot, and helped us brainstorm good colors for us to wear at our location. Day of, they coached us through different poses and captured a lot of authentic and natural moments. The photos speak for themselves. Thank you, Leo and Marina!!

I had an amazing experience with Nikulin Studios for a couples photo shoot. Marina and Leo were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Our pictures exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be doing more photoshoots with them in the future. I highly recommend Nikulin Studios, as they are friendly and professional. I love the work they do and have shown off my pictures to everyone!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I will always offer discounts for group sessions as well as occasional mini session promotions.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We will first have initial dialogue regarding your ultimate wants and goals. From there we can discuss inspiration/ideas for your session and identify ways in which we can enhance your experience. We will then confirm a date and time and a contract as well as an invoice will be issued. We will have a pre-event consultation to go over the agenda for the day and make sure all client needs are being addressed. Depending on your photography package, images can be delivered within 5 days to 8 weeks (i.e. weddings) with the option for rush delivery for an additional fee. Images are delivered via an online gallery available for download or print.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Memberships to several organization for photography networking and training
