Love Notes

Sophie + Sam

Nadya was amazing - extremely professional but also super friendly and easy to talk to. She totally understood everything we wanted, for example that we did not want an intrusive photographer, but rather a "behind the scenes" approach. Even on the day, our parties were impressed with how nice and quick she was. Leading up to the wedding, she was very quick to respond to emails and very organized. We are really happy with how the photos turned out. I would definitely recommend Nadya!

Stephanie + Chris

Nadya was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process and made choosing a wedding photographer extremely easy!! We began with an engagement shoot, where she traveled to Hoboken to shoot in the town we live in, and took some amazing shots on the waterfront. As soon as we met Nadya, we knew we loved her! She is so easy-going, super friendly, while also very professional and clearly knows what she is doing. We were so in love with our engagement shoot that we couldn't wait for the wedding photos! After receiving our photos this week, we couldn't be happier. She captured every moment (including tears, laughs, smiles, and everything in between!), and pictures that we will have forever. She had a very quick turnaround and also provided us with a sneak peak just a few days after our big day. I would recommend Nadya extremely highly to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. She went with the flow the entire day, and allowed us to ensure we got all of the photos we wanted while still providing enough instruction with our bridal and grooms parties to get as many photos as we could! Thank you Nadya for everything!!! xoxo

If you are looking for a true professional and incredibly talented photographer then Nadya is the girl for you. After interviewing several photographers my fiancé and I met with Nadya and got such an warm vibe. She comes off as laid-back but she extremely organized and really listens to exactly what you're looking to get out of your photos. Having been the last of my siblings to get married, it was in very important to me to have several candid shots that truly capture the moment instead of tons of portraits since neither of my siblings did much with those photos after their wedding. Nadya gave us just that... thousands of incredible candid moments that captured all of the emotion of the day. The shot that she was able to get from behind my shoulder of my dad's reaction to seeing me for the first time in my gown is truly priceless and something that I will cherish forever. You don't realize it but the day goes very fast and there are so many things that you don't get to see and Nadya makes sure to get photos of all of those special moments. She really got to know Jon and I to make sure that she knew exactly what we wanted out of our photos and let me tell you she delivered on everything!! We have had several people ask us who our photographer was to recommend them to friends and family because they were so impressed with our photos. Nadya is also extremely timely with getting the photos back to you which is so important because once you're depressed that your special day is over all you want to do is relive it through photos! I cannot say enough about my incredible experience working with Nadya and I am beyond grateful to have a lifetime of amazing photos!

Nadya was so great to work with! She is very relaxed and knows how to make you feel comfortable. Nadya was always very responsive and flexible based on what we wanted. Our pictures came out beautifully and I would absolutely recommend her to friends!!  

Fiana + Ray

Nadya is simply the best. She not only takes a gorgeous picture, but is also wonderful to work with. Her second shooter for our wedding was amazing as well. We had such a great time working with them both! We tried catching Nadya off guard a few times while working with her by driving her out onto the beach to take engagement pictures in the freezing cold and running out of our reception to catch a couple photos in front of a twilight sky. Nadya never flinched and delivered flawless shots with the biggest smile. She is also brilliant at photographing natural light and she took the exact bright beautiful photos we imagined. And if you're looking for a photographer that captures the priceless moments as they unfold, look no further. She has an eye for the genuine moments, the ones you end your wedding day repeating in your head to commit them to memory. There's no need to worry, because Nadya's captured it beautifully. We can't say enough about how great an experience this has been and how happy we are with our wedding photos. We were also amazed at how quickly after the wedding we were able to view our pictures! She really cares about each of her couples and makes you feel like a priority. Absolutely LOVE Nadya Furnari Photography! She was one of the best wedding vendor decisions we made!

Shoko + Brian

Nadya was very easy to work with. At our engagement photo session, she did a great job making us feel comfortable. She gave us some instructions to pose for photo shooting, but in the most natural way. We like the website link in which we could give details of our wedding day, including wedding party and some notes that we would need her to know. Things were very organized, and we really enjoyed all the sessions we did with her. Photos came out very nice and I would recommend anyone to have her as your photographer for your special day!

Christina + Michael

Nadya was amazing to work with. She got back to us very quickly about everything we needed to plan and was really flexible about speaking with us over Skype since we live in Boston. The morning of the wedding I was sort of a disaster and she basically took on a role of helping me keep it together, in addition to taking BEAUTIFUL pictures!! Her second shooter was also very professional and fun to be around. They made the sometimes lengthy but necessary process of taking family and wedding party photos easy and fun. She's great at the candid photos, which was something I was really hoping for. I can't believe how quickly we got the pictures back. It was like 2 weeks. Just seriously amazing. And the photos are PERFECT. Also she sent us a thank you card with our USB of our pictures which was lovely. THANK YOU SO MUCH NADYA!!

Nadya shot both our engagement and wedding photos. I can't say enough kind things about her. She's an extremely down-to-earth, calm, kind and genuine person! She's easy to work with, knows when it's her place to give her opinion and goes with the flow. She made the entire wedding photo process feel fun. She let our personalities shine through instead of forcing us to do something we didn't feel comfortable with. All of our poses in our photos were natural, loving and totally us. I loved getting to know her first with the engagement shoot, because we had a great level of trust and comfort with her on our wedding day - I was actually excited to see her when she arrived! I didn't think about "oh, did she get this shot?" because I knew she would - and she even made a list of certain shots I wanted so that on that day, I didn't have to think about a thing. We couldn't have been happier with her photos, which I shared on my own blog (I'm a blogger.)  So thank you, Nadya - and I can't wait for you to take our baby pictures!!!! Maybe in a few years, of course - hope you're still taking photos then!

Soo + Ron

I highly recommend Nadya! She was very responsive and easy to communicate with, did a great job of getting all the photos needed in an efficient and friendly way, and most importantly, her photos are gorgeous! We were very very happy with how they turned out. I did quite a bit of research into central jersey wedding photographers, so I can save you the trouble of doing all that research -- you won't regret going with Nadya!

Robin + Jim

We found Nadya's work on line and were immediately intrigued. Her understanding of composition, lighting and color reflect in her work. She's really an artist. We loved her after our first meeting, she's super professional but down to earth, and answered all of our questions and made us feel at ease. She was immediately responsive to all emails and follow up questions. During our engagement shoot and the wedding day Nadya made us feel relaxed and confident in her abilities, no shots ever felt staged and they were all beautiful! Nadya was even pregnant during our wedding and made sure she brought the man power behind her in case she got tired that day! She is a true professional and worth every penny.

Li + James

My husband and I could not have been more thrilled to have Nadya capture our wedding. Looking through our photos not only allowed us to relive our wedding day but we were constantly delighted by the way she captured the special moments. Nadya is the perfect combination of easygoing, accommodating, and fun to be around while also being very skilled, unobtrusive, and having a wonderfully artistic eye. She captured shots in ways that were creative and beautiful, occasionally using angles, compositions, or backdrops that were unexpected but absolutely lovely and tasteful. My husband is a designer, and both of us were very impressed with Nadya's sensibilities--in how she captured the shots as well as how she processed the images. Nadya also created a well-balanced combination of candid and posed photos. She knows the angles that look good on people, and she also understood our desire to have specific shots with certain family members and friends. She invited us to give her input and created a detailed schedule and shot list that she carried with her the day of the wedding and comprehensively worked through. Our engagement session was a lot of fun and the perfect way to get to know Nadya and her style a few months prior to the wedding. We couldn't recommend Nadya more enthusiastically, and are so grateful we snagged her to be our photographer.

Mina + Guillaume

Nadya did our engagement and wedding photos and it was a real pleasure to have her as our photographer. We met her at a friend couple's wedding, looked at her blog, and really liked her photography style. Nadya is easygoing, well organized, and a charm to work with. Our wedding pictures came out perfect! She captured so many spontaneous moments of the wedding on camera yet remained discreet. The joy and happiness of the occasion really shines through the pictures. Nadya was also attentive to our special requests and was very flexible in tailoring her wedding photography package to our preferences. Thank you so much Nadya!We definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for a special occasion!

It was a pleasure to have Nadya as our wedding photographer! She is professional, very organized, easy going, proactive with communications (thank you Nadya!! & sorry for all the late responses!).She did an incredible job at capturing every moment on our wedding day and at the engagement session.

Isabel + Mitch

When looking for a wedding photographer we both knew we wanted someone that could not only capture the moment, but also the emotion in that moment. As soon as I came across Nadya's blog I could tell she had the skill and the personality that would be so wonderful to work with. Nadya made it so much fun and natural to be photographed at both our engagement session and our wedding. It was amazing how we didn't even notice her at the reception, yet she was able to photograph some touching (and hilarious) moments. Thank you so much Nadya for putting so effort into the work you do. We will eternally cherish the memories you captured.

Lily + Luke

Nadya was fantastic. She did our engagement and our wedding photos. It was a pleasure to work with her during the shoots and the final products are incredible pictures we will treasure forever. Nadya is friendly, easy to talk to, organized, responsive to and proactive about emails, receptive to ideas and input, and easygoing. This was perfect for us, since we were sometimes very busy and would've otherwise dropped the ball with communication (sorry!) and also because Nadya had a great, positive attitude to make our vision work. Since Luke and I are pretty laid-back, we wanted candid pictures in which our personalities could shine through. At the same time, we wanted to adequately commemorate such a momentous and meaningful occasion with photos that would be beautiful and timeless, pictures we could look at 50 years from now and be proud of. Nadya achieved that balance; she gave us both fun and candid shots to remind us of the tears, laughter, and fun of the day, and also veritable works of art that we can't wait to frame and look at for years to come. She even did all this while being pleasantly discreet during the ceremony and reception, which surely contributed to the photojournalistic touch evident in the final product. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone, especially people looking for not only gorgeous, but also genuine photos. We would also hire her again in a heartbeat, but we're not planning on remarrying anytime soon. 🙂 Thanks, Nadya!

Nadya is not only amazingly talented, she is a blast to work with! I wanted to make sure that I found a photographer that I got along with because you spend so much of your day with them and she has such an awesome, fun personality that you don't find yourself getting "photograph fatigue" with her. Her photos came out SO beautiful, she captured not only the events of the day itself, she somehow managed to capture then entire fun, romantic feel of the day! I'll definitely be seeing her again for baby and family photo sessions in the future!
