Lauren + Jamie
We are completely speechless! Ever since last summer, during the engagement shoot, we knew that you were the perfect person to do this job!! Your calmness and support throughout the last couple of months have been absolutely amazing. We LOVE all the photos!!!!!! We kept looking at different photos and recognizing moments that we had forgotten about or didn't get to see, which just made everything feel so much more special than it already did! From the family portraits, to the ceremony picture (my dad and I hugging), to the photos of just Jamie and I were beyond perfect. We really couldn't be happier! We’re so glad that we got to work with you and David and thank you so much for helping to remind us how special our wedding day was. You will forever be in our graces in our hearts!

Nadya photographed my sister's wedding 5 years ago and I knew immediately when I got engaged that I wanted her to shoot my wedding. Her energy is so calm and relaxed, perfect for helping calm any wedding day stress or jitters. She is so accommodating and professional and her photos are GORGEOUS. The lighting, the angles -- so stunning. Can't recommend her enough!
Maya + Matt
Hiring Nadya was the best decision we made during our entire year long engagement... and we made a lot of good decisions! From the very first messages many months ago, to the emails we exchanged after the wedding, she was a complete joy to work with! Firstly, her prices are extremely reasonable, especially considering her award-worthy talent. Next, she is highly professional: arrived day-of not only on time but early and with a smile, was respectful of weird family dynamics, followed all covid precautions without a reminder, and made sure not to be intrusive or overbearing when taking photos throughout the night. Lastly, and absolutely most importantly, she is an amazing photographer! She captured over 900 images from our small socially-distanced wedding and we loved EVERY.SINGLE.ONE. It was so hard to choose which ones to print because they were all masterpieces and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives. Do yourself a favor and hire Nadya and her assistant. You will not only not regret it but you will celebrate it when you have your special day so beautifully memorialized.
Lauren + Andrew
Look no further for a photographer. I spent weeks researching different photographers, and I can't tell you how beyond perfect Nadya and her team was. Nadya was an expert on where to shoot at our venue and her photographs exceeded all my expectations and hopes. She is truly a painter the way she uses light in our photos and made the day carefree and fun. Even all of our family members are in awe of the photos and how all the images turned out. She was organized and we got every photo grouping that we requested and more. The whole experience was a dream and I am so lucky I found Nadya Furnari Photography!
Courtney + Connor
We could not be happier we booked Nadya for our wedding day - she did an incredible job and was such a great addition to our day. Nadya was such a breeze to work with from the very beginning (even working with my sister who surprised us with an engagement session as a Christmas gift!) and helped make the wedding go smoothly from start to finish. She always kept us informed and was always so quick to answer any questions that we had along the way. We are so thrilled with both our engagement and wedding photos - they really captured the day perfectly. We would absolutely recommend her to everyone!
Elyssa & Nick
Nadya was absolutely wonderful! She is an incredibly talented photographer and was so great to work with on our wedding day. Nadya is professional, reliable and also extremely personable and kind. She captured so many special moments on our wedding day. Leading up to our wedding and after, Nadya was always very responsive. Nadya is a skilled photographer and overall amazing to work with. We are so glad we had her photograph our wedding day!
Erica + Jason
Nadya is amazing! I liked her work so much I contacted her twice in my mad dash to find the perfect photographer. My gut was right, Nadya was a joy to work with. She’s funny, professional, organized, laid back and her work is beyond beautiful. She is up for an adventure to get the best shots and to brave the cold (February wedding here). You don’t even notice her while she’s taking pictures. She gets great candid shots and can lead a rowdy but fun group to the perfect poses. Our photos truly capture what our wedding day was like which is something I’ll be forever grateful to Nadya for!
Kristen + Marshall
Nadya is an absolutely amazing photographer!! Before the wedding she was so responsive and helpful in preparing for our day. Then day of she was so patient (even when the women were running well behind!) Our photos were absolutely beautiful and she has such a good eye for both staged and candid photos. We have so many great candids that we had no idea were being taken but turned out fabulous! Each photo is perfect, I cannot express how grateful we are to have a photographer who so perfectly captured our day.
Monica & Alex
My husband and I are so happy with the beautiful moments Nadya captured on our big day and during our engagement session. My favorite thing about Nadya was how comfortable she always made us feel with her and in front of her camera. As the bride, it was important for me to feel connected to all my vendors and that I felt they got a good sense of who we are as a couple. With Nadya, I definitely felt that way and the photos she captured really reflects who my husband and I are as a couple. On our big day, Nadya was the very calm presence in my pretty hectic cottage. She calmly told me what needed to be shot and when so we could stay on schedule. During the wedding, Nadya was so great at roaming the room to capture various guests and awesome candid moments. We are so happy with Nadya's work and would book her again in a heartbeat!
Victoria + Sharif
From our engagement shoot through coordination via email all the way to our wedding day, Nadya and team were amazing! Her attention to detail and photography skills are incredible- you will not be disappointed with your photos. Nadya is very easy to work with and not your typical photographer (in the best way)! In my experience, photographers try too hard to be out of the way. Nadya and team manage directing their shots while also being able to conversate and engage the group!
Laura + Andrew
We could not have been happier to have hired Nadya as our wedding photographer. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. First off, she was well-organized and provided us a detailed schedule which helped us feel at ease about how everything would go down. Not only did she do a fantastic job accommodating all of the staged and group shots but she has a great eye for all of the candid photos as well, which was one of our big draws to her in the first place. Even within the start of a busy wedding season, Nadya provided us all the photos in a very timely manner and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.
Paige + Tim
Nadya was fantastic! She was personable, easy to work with, professional, and extremely talented. Even though we were based in DC and Nadya is in NJ, she was available via skype to chat whenever necessary to plan our day, gave us a detailed overview of the photography schedule, and even met with us when we were in NJ for a weekend prior to the wedding. She accommodated all of our requests for group shots, both before the ceremony and during the cocktail hour and reception -- all without feeling like we were pulling people away from the fun to be in the photos. During the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, we barely noticed that Nadya was working, but she somehow managed to get all the great shots without seeming intrusive! Nadya sent us our photos within two weeks of the wedding, and they turned out even better than we imagined. There are so many shots that we want framed! Nadya is especially good with candid and natural photos -- this was a point of emphasis for us and her talent for capturing the moment lets us relive our special day again and again through her photos. We highly recommend Nadya Furnari!
Marielle + Max
Nadya was professional, organized, and easy to work with. She had a great eye and captured both formal and candid shots perfectly throughout the event, and she had our first photos ready within a week! All the photos were stunning, and we can't recommend Nadya highly enough.
Courtney + Andrew
Nadya has been an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. She came highly recommended by a colleague, so I knew I was already in excellent hands. Once you take a look at her portfolios you know that your wedding photos will be exquisite. We spoke with Nadya via Skype and felt very comfortable. She explained that she includes your engagement shoot in your package to allow everyone time to get comfortable with her and comfortable in front of the camera. This experience was definitely helpful and I was able to relax on the day of. We also got some excellent candid photos of each other to use for our save the dates. I did not need a day of coordinator because Nadya helped outline our day for us. It all went smoothly and we didn’t miss a thing, not even a minute of our cocktail hour. Nadya shared our pictures with us less than two weeks after our big day. We have over a thousand photos, both candid and portraits, of our families, our bridal party, and us. It was hard deciding which ones to print because we loved all of them. She made designing the album very simple and we received it less than two months after our wedding day. I still get compliments on how beautiful our photos were and I would recommend Nadya to anyone planning a wedding.
Emily + Andrew
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!
Katie + Steve
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!
Cadi + Travis
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).
Danielle + Chris
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!
Margarita + Bobby
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.
Carson + Tristan
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.
Caroline + Dan
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!!.
Joy + Alexis
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
Margaret + Ryan
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!!
Michelle + Ryan
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!
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!
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!!
Lauren + Joe
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!
Alexis + Jon
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!
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 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
