  • First let me explain that after we booked the venue, DJ, and Yan as our photographer - our venue realized they double booked us on the same date. We were devastated and scrambled around the ensure all of our vendors, including Yan, could still be our photographer...Not only was he able to change his schedule but sent us a message saying "don't worry, everything is going to be fine". From the beginning of when we met Yan in his studio we could tell he was a true artist, and just LOVED the work that he did. While he was showing us examples of previous wedding shoots, we could see his face light up with excitement as he showed us the different types of photo's he explained to us. The planning process was so simple. He created a timeline in minutes for our big day and followed up with us as we got closer. On the day of the wedding - He took photos of us getting ready and you really could see the artist come out. He would see the images in his mind and had it all come out through the lens....

  • I can go on and on about Yan! From the start, he makes you feel like you know him! I truly can't recommend him enough. He is so reasonably priced and provides such an amazing service. He was one vendor I was never worried about delivering!!! He drove all the way to us in Monmouth County for our engagement shoot and I knew then we would absolutely love our wedding photos! Not even full week we had all of our wedding pics from Yan. I love each one more than the next!!! Yan is must!!

  • I couldn't have been more happier having Yan shoot my wedding day. He is truly talented and you can tell how much passion he puts into his work. He's very easy to work with and listens to exactly what you want. He gets all your pictures edited & sent to you within a week, so you don't have to keep waiting. Yan is truly amazing!!

    Thank you so much Lauren, it’s been a pure pleasure to work with you and Chris. You guys are just meant for each other, especially during the first look when Chris saw you. This moment was just hard to forget as well as the rest of the wedding. Thank you again for letting me capture your best day, I will certainly remember that!

  • I had met with a few photographers prior to meeting with Yan and was so torn on which direction I wanted to go. A friend of mine had met Yan at a street fair and recommended I take a look at his work and meet with him. When I met with Yan, I knew I had met my wedding photographer from the first few minutes alone. He was so kind and professional, asking me what I envisioned for the day and all of the pictures and albums he had samples of were just amazing. You can tell that he loves what he does and has such a passion for capturing moments and memories. The day of my wedding, Yan knew exactly what to shoot and when, getting just the right amount of formal shots as well as candids. There were several small children in my wedding and they were constantly running in and out of pictures and not cooperating, Yan didn't miss a beat, he laughed it off and kept on shooting. I received a few pictures from him the next day and then had my full gallery within a few days. I WAS COMPLETELY BLOWN AW... Read more

  • We had the pleasure of working with Yan on our engagement shoot and for our wedding photos. He is a brilliant photographer and overall pleasure to work with. When we first met with him he was informative and seemed very passionate about his work. He was always available when we had questions and was a great help in the planning process. Working with him on the days of the photo shoots was great too. We had both our shoots in the winter so it was cold and wet but he maintained his enthusiasm throughout and kept our spirits high. We also got to take advantage of the weather – getting some great photos in the snow at the end of the night. He explained the photos, poses, and made us both feel so comfortable throughout the process. The pictures came out BEAUTIFUL and so quick! He really has an eye for capturing special moments and incorporating the scenery around you. Cherry on the cake is that he is very affordable – packages are priced very reasonably compared to some other NYC area... Read more

  • Yan was perfect. The best vendor we hired for our wedding. Yan was very helpful and very easy to communicate with. Even leading up to our wedding and planning out the day Yan helped us develop a timeline that worked with us and the outside lighting for pictures (December wedding). Our photos are priceless and we couldn't have asked for anything better to document the beginning of our family.

    Thank you Joe and Rebecca for such a sweet review. There are not enough words to express of how much I enjoyed working with you. It was my biggest pleasure to capture your big day. Enjoy the photos

    Thank you Alyson! It was my pleasure taking care care of you guys. One of the most important things is that we’ve conquered a cold weather and we’re able to get some beautiful photos with NYC in the background. Enjoy them

  • My husband and I couldn't be happier that we picked Yan as our engagement and wedding photographer. He was professional, but always kept the shoots fun and light hearted. He kept in part with the style of photography we were looking for and each photo came out beautifully. Yan captured the most beautiful moments. Each and every single photo is stunning and interesting. Would highly recommend!!!

    Thank you Jessica for such beautiful words. I am so glad you were happy with your photos. Glad we were able to beat the rain and get all the photos done beforehand. Your wedding was so beautiful and I truly enjoyed working with both of you!!

  • We reached out to Yan because of his excellent existing reviews on WeddingWire. Although he was unable to handle our wedding himself, he put us in touch with his associate Peter Rigo (who I will leave a separate glowing review for) and handled the business matters perfectly. The contract and payment times were very clearly drawn out, he reached out at regular intervals to ensure that we had everything we needed, and created our album exactly as desired (and even shipped it express!)

  • We initially contacted Yan about being our wedding photographer last spring. He was booked during our date, but he recommended his partner, Peter, to be our wedding photographer. We signed the contract through Yan and went through all of the basic details of our wedding with him. Even though we live quite a distance away, we were still able to easily communicate and plan with both Yan and Peter for our wedding. Both of them were super professional and fun to plan with. We did our meetings with Yan over Facetime, which we really appreciated since we live a few states away from the city where we got married. Even though we planned a little bit later than most couples, we were still able to get our Engagement session done before the end of the spring, which I really enjoyed. Peter did all of our photography and editing, but Yan was the one who set everything else up and made sure that we were satisfied with the work his partner did. Yan put together our wedding album, which we just got... Read more

  • Yan had the best profile of work and the best pricing. We got quotes from other photographers and they wanted twice as much for only 150 or so photos and 4 hour of shooting. Yan completely scheduled and structured the 7 hours we asked him to be there and we were able to get every photo he took. Unfortunately we had a nor’easter on our wedding day but that didn’t stop Yan from getting gorgeous outside shots of us. We got all the shots we wanted and were able to spend all of cocktail hours and the whole time with our guests. Got the photos shortly after the wedding and are absolutely floored with how everything came out. Yan is the best and his work completely backs that up; an absolute pleasure to work with.

    Thank you Brandon!! I really enjoyed working with you guys, despite the weather we were able to pull it through and got some beautiful shots, especially the night photos on the boardwalk. These were one of my favorites. Enjoy the photos!!

  • Yan took the pictures for both our engagement session in March and our wedding in October and we had an incredible experience with him. He is extremely professional and we are beyond thrilled with his work. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was comfortable and was willing to listen to our requests during the events and the production of our album - which was tastefully done as well! We were extremely blown away by the quality of the pictures we received, and how he was able to depict exactly the loving, fun nature of our wedding. Thanks to his professionalism and exceptional talent, we now have our memories captured forever in pictures we will always cherish and enjoy. We cannot say enough positive things about our experience, and we are absolutely glad that we had chosen Yan to capture some of the most special moments in our lives!

  • Yan Schwartzman was the photographer for my wedding. Yan exemplifies what it means to be a true professional. He was so personal, funny, and charming to work with - he kept us smiling and laughing the whole time! He’s extremely hardworking as well, punctual, always actively looking for the best shots. He was also very patient and accommodating with my large family. Above all, his vision and his artistry speaks for itself. Our photos are absolutely breathtaking - he captured our special day in the most magical way, and I will forever treasure them. I HIGHLY recommend him for any and all occasions! You will not be disappointed!! Thank you SO much Yan!!

  • Yan was a great photographer to work with for my wedding. He is very professional and knew all the right angles to capture! We did a first look before our morning ceremony and when I expressed my concerns about time, Yan assured me that we would get all the pictures we needed before the ceremony with plenty of time to spare and he made sure of it! He also got a lot of great candid photos. I will recommend Yan to my friends when they get engaged!! Thank you Yan!
