Our wedding would not have been the same without him!!!
Serg came highly recommended to us, so we were already optimistic when we met for the first time. After two minutes of chit chat, we had made our decision. His fun, casual nature complimented his portfolio like sprinkles on a sundae, and we can genuinely testify that our special day would not have been the same without him.
Serg was flexible and precise, working within our budget while gathering a sense of our personalities & tastes in order to create a style unique to us. On the day of the wedding, he arrived much earlier than we expected so that he could tour the grounds and plan ahead. From start to finish, everyone's experience with him was, for lack of a better word, fun! From shooting the wedding party getting dolled-up, to the ceremony, to the posed photos & culminating with the reception, everyone was laughing, cheery & relaxed. Now in theory, the pictures a bride & groom traditionally take together while their guests enjoy a cocktail hour should be a bit of a forced chore; you've just gotten hitched and the drinks are being poured- why are you stuck taking photos when you can hear everyone celebrating around the corner?!?! Not once did that thought cross our minds- in fact, that intimate photo session was one of the highlights of our day. After all the stress, all the planning, all the commotion, that hour of photos was the most peaceful, relaxing experience we enjoyed until our honeymoon, a full month later. Serg was laughing, joking, enjoying himself as well, all while practicing his creative talents, which our wedding album can attest to.
The entire duration of the reception he was alert & casual, capturing moments that you typically save for the feel-good montage at the end of a Disney film. There were even a few times when he couldn't keep himself from showing us a great, unique shot.
To conclude, Serg Mayevsky made a brilliant impact on our wedding day, which is confirmed with the incredible album we received not long afterwards. Another friend recently hired him for her own wedding, and had an identical experience. His balance of personality, professionalism & talent is unmatched, and we would recommend him to anyone.
My wife & I owe our good memories to him from our special day, both on film & in mind.
