Engagement Photography

This was a very first time for me and my fiance doing a professional photography and Ekaterina made it such a memorable experience. Very professional from the start with scheduling and help choose locations. Although we were jittery just before the session, she made it very comfortable and gave us great suggestions that were very natural to us, as we warmed up to the camera. Kate was very flexible when we asked her to add a location that was special to us. The photos look amazing and I have so many to choose from for our holiday card. She really captured us in a frame. Thank you Kate!

Engagement Photography

Ekaterina took our engagement photos in downtown Chicago and they turned out beautiful! She took us to several different spots and helped us feel comfortable throughout it all. She was a calm presence and captured candid moments while we had fun being ourselves, which I much prefer to posed photos. I would definitely recommend Ekaterina!

Engagement Photography

Ekaterina was absolutely great to work with. I liked her suggestions during our shoot. She was responsive to text messages and asked for examples of what I was looking to get out of the photography session. She was also very welcoming and professional. Her work is great! I’d definitely work with her again!! This was the first time we did something like this and she made it very easy to work with her. Thanks for a great experience! Just got the edits and they are better than I could ever imagine!!

Portrait Photography

Katia is AMAZING! We did the family/child photo session with her. Our little one wasn’t very cooperating during the session but Katia tried to interact with her and managed to put some smiles on her face! Katia is very patient and professional. The fact that she also speaks Russian is HUGE PLUS for us since our daughter understands Russian but not much English. The photos turn out to be so vibrant and beautiful. We are so happy to let her do our photos. Will definitely keep in touch with her for more family photo sessions in the future!

Ekaterina did a wonderful job with our family photos! We brought our dog along which was an added challenge but she got some great shots. So happy with the work and quick turnaround of the photos. Thank you so much!

FAQs

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

    My process with working with new customers is to first really learn what they are all about - their personality, why they would like a photo session, what they hope to get out of the session, and what I can do to keep them coming back. I am very outgoing and friendly and I try to make sure I showcase that in my photographs as well as my persona.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have worked with many types of clients, ranging from high to low budgets. I try my best to accommodate my clients and ensure that the session they booked captures just exactly what they are looking for, and hopefully more. It is my goal to make sure my clients leave the session happy with how it went, and to ensure that the final photographs are up to the standards they were looking for.

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    I would say clients should think about what exactly they want out of each photo session - do they want just candids or a mix of candids and posed shots? I try to make sure the clients are completely satisfied and not only do I assist in scouting a location but I also offer many posing ideas and come ready and prepared for any situation I or the client may walk into. My ultimate goal is to make sure the clients are happy with my work and hope that they wish to schedule more sessions in the future.
