Introduction: I am a well-established wedding, engagement, and portrait photographer from NYC who has just re-located to the Catskills. I love what I do, and my goal is to work closely with you to create images you will love! I am inspired by the Catskills and Hudson Valley area, but I have also a lot of experience shooting in urban settings and venues in NYC. I handled small intimate elopements and large weddings. My work has been published in numerous wedding and fashion magazines and I have won photography awards during my 10+ year photography career. Since I am now in a new area, I am offering photography services at a discount for a limited time, so that I can photograph in the beautiful Catskills / Hudson Valley Area! I just recently joined Thumbtack, so may not have many reviews on here, but you can see my reviews on Wedding Wire or Google.

Serena A.

Commercial Photography

Boris was a pleasure to work with! I need business headshots. He helped with creating backgrounds and phots sets out of the items/furniture in my home. I don't like taking photos and he made the shoot feel relaxing and fun. I loved the outcome; the photos were beautiful and exactly what I wanted. I definitely recommend Boris and would hire him again.

Boris made me feel at ease. He is very professional and pleasant to work with. He took plenty of shots and took his time framing which resulted in great photos for our farmhouse Airbnb. We're having him back again when the barn is set up for summer. Thank you Boris!

Portrait Photography

My now husband and I were looking for someone to photograph our last minute winter elopement at Mohonk mountain house and feel so incredibly fortunate to have found Boris! He truly exceeded all expectations. He made us feel comfortable - we had the best time - and he has such an amazing eye. He was able to pick out such perfect spots for photos and got us some really interesting and artistic shots. We were so blown away and excited when we opened our gallery and saw literally hundreds of stellar photos. Everything turned out better than we could have expected. Not only do we adore the photos, but we were so impressed with the turnaround time! We were amazed to receive a link to the gallery in just a couple of days. It was especially meaningful to get the gallery so quickly since our families weren’t able to be with us due to COVID. They can’t stop raving about the photos and telling us how special it is to have them. Multiple family members have told us that because of Boris’s amazing gallery, they feel as though they were with us on our special day. We cannot thank or recommend Boris enough!

If you are thinking for a photoshoot near hunter mountain. Look no further. Boris was awesome.. worked with our kids to make them comfortable, picked the spot which was close to parking spot (winter shoot with kids are not easy!). Photos were available almost immediately. We would hire him again and again.

FAQs

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

    I am currently relocating from NYC to the Catskills / Hudson Valley Area. I am offering discounts off my normal pricing in order to book some more local jobs. These discounts are more than 50% off, and I am looking to photograph you in beautiful upstate NY area!

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

    We typically discuss the photoshoot ahead of time via email or phone. I consult regarding any questions, and we set a date, time and location for the shoot. During the shoot I offer guidance on posing and capture your natural personality! Most people I photograph have never had a professional photoshoot, so I am used to new clients.

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

    I studied photography and film at New York University. I have over a decade experience in the photography industry, photographing for wedding, portrait, fashion and commercial clients. I currently also lead a photography club for high school students!
