Pavel was a fantastic photographer. We had a bit of an offbeat wedding at the San Francisco Zoo, and he managed to capture both the silly joy and the solemn aspects of the day with real elegance.
First, Pavel is absolutely professional and polite and on time with everything (both on the day of the wedding and in delivering your photographs after the fact). He also has a solid sense of humor and is a genuinely nice person: it was really comfortable working with him, and he slipped seamlessly into the crowd in a way that let him snap some amazing candid shots. But he was also sensitive to when others were snapping photos too – recognizing those were moments that mattered to our guests and to us – and he made sure to get high-quality and natural versions of those too.
The editing and processing on the photographs was absolutely gorgeous, as you can probably tell from his portfolio. He provides you with an extensive suite of images, but each one is color-balanced in a totally subtle and graceful way. He made our wedding look stunning!

Pavel shot our sunrise family session in Maui, Hawaii a few weeks ago and I cannot describe how wonderful our experience was with him!!!
Not only was he able to hold the attention of our 15 month old but the moments he was able to capture of the three of us were BEYOND stunning.
I cannot put into words how much we love each and every photo. Thank you again Pavel for everything, I hope to have you capture the three of again sometime soon!
My husband and I did a post-wedding photo shoot in our wedding clothes a couple months after our wedding. Pavel was just fantasitc.
He made us feel comfortable and suggested poses/props/locations that would look great. He made sure the timing of the shoot was such that the lighting turned out simply beautiful. He gave us our photos within two weeks!
They are EXACTLY what I wanted – to capture some loving, candid-looking moments between my husband and me with beautiful, soft lighting and DEFINITELY frameable quality.

Photos of your wedding day are so special.
We were considering several different photographers for our big day. In the end, Pavel was who we decided to go with.
He was really friendly and quick to reply to questions/concerns. On the day of he was on time and ready to go. Everyone commented on how great he was to be around.
He did a fantastic job of capturing our day and we are so happy with all the photos. He is the best!
