My philosophy is that simple is best. I like my people to be kind, my days relaxed, my food to be delicious, and my humor to be straightforward. Like people falling. That’s always funny (<— click there to see the best fall ever!) .
Weddings are no different for me. My approach is less is more. More of you, less of me. I like to think of myself as a sort of photo-ninja—my best work happens when you barely notice I’m there.
Of course, I’ll speak up and direct you when needed, but this day isn’t about you listening to me all day. It’s about your love and connection, your family and your friends. I’ll be right alongside you all day long, letting you enjoy the moments and capturing them so you can remember them forever.

I am so happy we bookd Nadya for our wedding! She captured our day perfectly. The photos are stunning and show all of the happiness and love present that day. We got unlucky with weather and it rained all day, but she found some really beautiful ways to take unique pictures that still felt bright and airy - despite the wedding. Not only that, Nadya is so great to work with. She's fun, funny, and super relaxed which makes everything that much better during the day. I would 100% recommend Nadya to any bride, you'd be lucky to have her photograph your wedding!

Nadya was our photographer for an engagement shoot last fall and our wedding on June 9, 2018, and all of the (many, many!) photos she took are incredible. She captured every emotion of our day from the intimate moments, family portraits, bridal party fun and especially the amazing shots of everyone enjoying the reception. We had a gigantic wedding party and a family that wanted some extra portraits before the reception, and Nadya and her second shooter were all over it. The photos speak for themselves (amazing!) and working with her was so easy and enjoyable. She is super responsive and so friendly. Thank you, Nadya for the incredible photos and for helping to make our day so special!

My husband and I got married last month and we used Nadya as our photographer and we are SO glad we did. Our engagement was two years long so we booked Nadya almost two years in advance. My brother, who is also a photographer, recommended her. Nadya took the time to meet up with me and go over all of my options. She checked in with me periodically throughout the engagement process and worked with my budget so that I could get the most for my money. The day of our wedding Nadya arrived early and made sure to get all of the shots that we requested. It was drizzling during our outside photos so I was worried that we might not have gotten as many good ones as I had hoped but I was so wrong. When our pictures came back, you can't even tell that there was some rain and there are so many beautiful shots. We received our entire online gallery about 2.5 weeks after the wedding and we received our USB in the mail 3-4 weeks ( not to mention it came in a super cute box with a tote bag).

Nadya is an absolutely incredible photographer. She has an amazing eye for not only the staged portraits, but for those special candid moments you didn't even know you needed. She knew exactly what she (and we) wanted, but also improvised during the day to capture some really special moments. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants their special day captured in a beautiful way, but with someone who isn't going to be in-your-face. Nadya captured moments that I didn't even know she was watching. Her subtlety enhanced our day, but you wouldn't be able to tell from the photos she took. We received stunning, high-quality photos and in a very timely manner. Nadya was professional and approachable from the moment we booked her to the day we received our album, answering all of our questions and keeping us informed. She was a pleasure to be around and made sure we checked off all of the photos on our lists. We will cherish these photos forever. Thank you, Nadya!

Where do I begin? Nadya was amazing from the moment we met. She immediately put me at ease and answered all of my questions. Our engagement pictures were a breeze. My fiancé and I couldn’t stop laughing—Nadya has jokes! She has the ability to capture the best moments without you even realizing it. And then the wedding pictures were just everything I wanted them to be. I knew I made the right choice when I picked her. She’s just an absolute natural at what she does and I couldn’t be happier to have chosen her to capture these moments for us.

I had such a hard time finding a photographer that got me excited for my wedding day. After days of searching for the right fit, I came across Nadya. She agreed to talk with me that night and after our conversation I was sold. She was open, communicative, and I loved her style. Nadya always got back to me quickly, allowing me to share my ideas for photos with her and ask questions about the day of timeline. She was calm, cool, and collected throughout all of our conversations. Nadya and her assistant were incredibly impressive day of - she didn't waste a single second! Nadya walked right into the room with my bridesmaids and pulled her camera out to start shooting. She posted a few photos just a few weeks after our wedding, all which were incredible. Our gallery came in no time and...wow! The photos capture the best moments of our wedding, for both myself and my husband but out guests too. It almost feels like we have a video because of all that was captured. Nadya and her team are open to suggestions and have a wonderful eye. Nadya, thank you!! You captured our day beautifully and were a pleasure to work with.

Nadya was an amazing photographer! I had seen her work from some mutual friends postings and was very eager to book her! It was the BEST decision!!! Our wedding day went by quickly. But now, my husband and I have the most gorgeous, airy and romantic photographs to look at forever. Not only is Nadya extremely talented, she is kind and organized. We had two very little flower girls. Nadya did an amazing job capturing their attention and photographing the sweet moments in between poses. She was early to the venue and did not need any direction. She got right to work! Nadya also triple checked that she got every photograph my husband and I had requested prior to the wedding. The day can be crazy, so it was wonderful that she made sure we had all our special moments recorded with the people we love the most. Nadya made our bridal parties and families feel comfortable during our time together. These relaxed moments are evident in how happy we all look in our portraits. My friends and family have given such high praise to the quality of photographs Nadya took. I knew I would love the photos, however, our gallery exceeded every expectation! I also loved how Nadya organized our online gallery so we can share them with our loved ones. I wish we were getting married all over again- so that Nadya could photograph us more!! I have already recommended Nadya to some co workers and friends. You will love having Nadya be a part of your special day! Thank you again Nadya, we were SO very lucky!!.

Nadya and her assistant John were nothing short of AMAZING! As a wedding planner myself, I have worked with Nadya before, and I knew the first time I ever met her that I needed her to be my photographer at my wedding. She is so professional, personable, efficient, and makes you and your family and friends her number one priority. Nadya spent a lot of time with me going over all the details that were necessary to my wedding. She made sure she fulfilled all of them PLUS SOME! all of our photos came out unbelievable and she got them to us so quickly!! Please do not look any further, or hesitate to hire her and her team. You'll thank me later!! I will 100% be referring her to all my future brides!!!! xoxo

To put it quite simply, book Nadya for your wedding!! From the beginning Nadya was so easy to talk to and discuss options even while planning our wedding from out of state. We had seen some weddings she had done at our venue, and knew we would already love the shots she would take. However, her calm demeanor and organization on the day of our wedding, along with laughing along with our crazy bridal party and family, was what made her truly spectacular. She was so quick with pictures, less than two weeks after our wedding, and they all came out beautifully! Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives, and Nadya was able to capture every detail of us, making us able to reminisce whenever we want!! Thank you Nadya!!

Choosing Nadya to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made during wedding planning. She is the perfect mix of flexible and organized, and has a great sense of humor. My bridesmaids said they wish she was our friend! Her photos are aesthetically-minded while still being very people-focused. We also got our photos quickly, wrapped in a beautiful keepsake box. Thank you, Nadya!

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!
Alyssa + Greg
Nadya and her assistant were the epitome of amazing professionals the day of our wedding! I knew I wanted to hire Nadya as soon as I saw her pictures, but her awesome personality was an added bonus. She kept us laughing throughout the day taking pictures, and not once did I ever really take notice of her snapping candid photos..she was sneaky in the best way possible! Her quality of pictures astounded us, and she truly captured the moments that meant the most to us throughout the day! If you are looking for a great photographer, then look no further than Nadya. She thinks outside the box when taking pictures, and does a great job of getting candids and posed photos. She is so creative and that comes through in a lot of her pictures, we were truly amazed! I highly recommend using Nadya if you want the best wedding pictures!!

Nadya Furnari is a true artist. She is patient, sweet, calm, and has great ideas to capture the moments, both spontaneous and planned, you will treasure in an album forever. We hired Nadya to photograph both our engagement and wedding pictures. From our first meeting, I told her how important it was to me to have our engagement pictures taken in my hometown of Troy, NY. My now husband and I live in New Jersey and our wedding was in New Jersey, so I wanted this little bit of home in our wedding planning. Nadya was on-board from the get-go and was excited to shoot in a new place. When a hurricane threatened the first day we picked, Nadya had no problem moving our travel date and made the 3 hour trip for us. I was so impressed to have a vendor who would make that kind of commitment for a stranger.
When it came to planning our wedding day, Nadya was so helpful working with us on planning on photo shot list, and working alongside our videographer. She had photographed at both our church and reception venue before, so she knew exactly where to get the best lighting and sight lines. And even though she has a sweet demeanor, she can wrangle any wayward family member into the shot so you can get through posed pictures on your way to mingle with your guests.
When my husband and I saw her blog post with highlights of our wedding day, we were awashed in happy tears - the images were so beautiful. We will cherish these photographs forever and so will you!

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 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 sneakpeak 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
