    I would recommend Odessa Photography to my very best friends. Nick was absolutely fantastic. My guests, including my mother, raved about Nick's personality and experience. Nick brought out the best in every guest and knew exactly what we were looking for in each shot. The photographer's positive energy was contagious! I, the bride, was put at ease immediately when I saw Nick work. Nothing can replace experience and Nick was a true seasoned professional. The photographs were delivered within the week! I can't say enough great things about Odessa Photography. I would tell everyone that needs a photographer: you can trust the professionals at Odessa on your special day.

    There are literally no words to describe Nick. His professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses and creative. Nick was one of the best investments of our wedding. He was easy to work with and responsive leading up to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Nick was punctual and worked his tail off! One of the biggest comments from our guests was how great Nick was and how dedicated he was to getting the perfect shots. He also ensured that we got all the shots in but were fully present and enjoying our wedding. Once we took our couple shots we barely noticed he was there the rest of the night. Our photos are so special and we have one of kind shots to remember of our perfect day for a lifetime and we have Nick to thank. I highly recommend his services to everyone.

    Amazing wedding photographer!
    We hired Nick to be our wedding photographer and he was amazing! He gathered all the information before the wedding, he thought to ask questions and attend to details I didn't even think about. He was so great during the wedding, he made everyone feel comfortable, joking around. The pictures were creative, we got a variety of posed and candid photos. We absolutely loved having Nick at our wedding and were so impressed with his service. I recommend him without reservations!

    Nick from Odessa Photography captured the memories from my special day. He was very accurate and able to take direction well. We spoke constantly on my vison and the pictures id like taken. Two days prior to the wedding nick called me to confirm and check in to see if there were any additions or updates. The day of the wedding nick came with his assistant prompt to the time we discussed and was immediately to work. I haven’t chosen my pictures yet but I know we have thousands to choose from. Nick was so detailed to pictures; I had to request to stop. I’m completely happy with Odessa Photography and the contract created. During the reception my family and friends were pleased with nick and his funniness to get the person to smile and be comfortable. If you’re interested in a photographer that will work to make your dreams than nick is the one!!!

    I honestly looked for my wedding photographer last minute. And I must say Odessa photography was able to put me at ease and insure me that even though I booked so close to the date that. That everything was going to be okay. We was paired up with photographer Nick and since day one he was always there to answer any question or concern I had. Even the day of my wedding I was running a little late due to traffic and he was super understand and extra patience sand let me took little breaks here and there to tend to my toddler. The packages and pricing they offer by far the best in town. I love the fact that he took pictures at random moments which means he captured the moment without us even noticing. I went without idea of what or how I would pose and he made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and laid back. And I write this without even receiving my pictures. So imagine after I get my pictures.. If your looking for a excellent photographer that doesn't rush or is after your money Odessa photography is totally the way to go. Don't think twice and give them a call or email them. Your allowed to ask any question and they will answer them. They just wanted you to be super happy with everything

    I think Nick did a great job and he exceeded my expectations which isn't easy to do. I didn't know what to initially expect being that I had never hired a professional photographer before, but it was a pleasureable experience over all. He made our surprise engagement on the Brooklyn Bridge a memorable moment. Thanks Nick.

    Nick our photographer is very kind and professional. Polite and on time. After one interview we knew we would use Odessa Wedding Photography for our wedding. Nick is very knowledgeable and has a spirit for the job. He captured all the shots he explained he would get and went above and beyond our expectations. He is extremely professional and so much fun to be with. He made everyone at our wedding wonder where we found such a good photographer and he will be getting any future business from us and a lot of our guests. He manged to capture so many beautiful memories for us and I barely noticed him maneuvering through the crowd. Thank you so much Nick for being such an important part of our blessed day.

    I would recommend Nick at Odessa Wedding Photography to anyone. We had our wedding brunch at a hotel in NYC and he didn't need any information except what time to be there and what hotel and he was there 10 minutes early, ready and taking photos of us setting up.. Nick is incredibly enthusiastic, prompt, professional and super super amazing at making everyone feel comfortable. He made taking photos relaxing, he also gives pointers and tips on how to pose (great pro when you don't really know what to do or how to stand etc.) My guests commented about how much they love him and how great he is! He immediately recognizes all the best features in a venue and took photos of ever single detail without me having to ask him to do so. I would work with Nick again 100% and am so happy with the beautiful photos he took of our wedding brunch. Thank you Nick!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We do not have a one size-fits-all pricing system, because every wedding situation is unique. Our pricing depends on how many photographers you need, how many albums you need, and how long of a wedding it is. Short weddings cost less than 12 hour weddings, for example.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Photo show, email, meeting phone or Skype/FaceTime. Written Agreement for service. Production photos, CD/DVD/USB, Albums, Movie.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Our professionals attend photography shows twice a year, to stay up to date with the latest developments in photographic technology. + 25+ years in Wedding photography in Europe and New York USA
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Our founder Nick started out doing wedding photography in his native country of Ukraine, in the city of Odessa. After doing it for many years there, he relocated to the United States in 1990, and brought his unique style and craft here. Twenty-four years later, we're still just as committed to the art photography.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Our most common events are weddings and engagement shoots, followed by Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet Sixteens/Quinceaeras, Confirmations, and Baptisms. We have plenty of experience in all of these jobs.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We recently photographed a 3-day Indian wedding with 800 people! We're capable of handling events ranging from small, intimate get-togethers, all the way up to massive 800-person weddings with 4 photographers and 3 Videographers.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
We wish that customers knew exactly how much work goes into wedding photography. While it may seem simple, it is quite hard to capture good pictures for 10 hours straight, while compensating for changing lighting conditions. Also, many hours go into color-correcting and editing photographs. This is a big part of why we charge what we charge. We go above and beyond most photography studios.
