From Our Couples

Having Alex and Lydia taking pictures for our engagement session and wedding day was the best decision. Me and Bill connected so easily with them from the very first moment and even felt like we all were already friends from long ago. They went beyond our expectations with the final result. They truly do an AMAZING job at what they do, and most importantly they let us be ourselves the entire time. We not only had fun but it also felt natural and warm working with them. We will definitely recommend them if someone ask. Their work is just BEAUTIFUL. Thank you again you guys! You will always have a special place in our hearts

The Kovalchuks by far are the most amazing and easy going photographers that I’ve worked with. Lida and Alex certainly know how to make your photo session experience unique and unforgettable. They are very creative people and can offer you so many interesting styles and ideas. Would highly recommend The Kovalchuks to all of my friends.

Looking for the right photographers for such a special day can give a bride complete anxiety. When I came across the Kovalchuks Instagram page & looking at their work I knew I had to book them. I knew we were making the perfect choice choosing them for our day, when we did the meet & greet. Their vibe was genuine & I’m so grateful that they grindeded out in the freezing cold just to get the right shots. So if you’re looking for the right duo to shoot your perfect day look no further.

Kovalchuks are the most amazing photographers. Along with their talent they have fantastic personalities. We had lots of fun and they took lovely photos. We couldn’t be happier with them.

Thank you for all your hard work. You are true professionals, keep up the good work.

Dear future brides and grooms: 

The Kovalchuks exude the interpersonal quality and attention to detail for any and every couple and type of day. They each made it their mission to ensure my spouse and I felt as if we were truly their top priority throughout our out of the box wedding. As well as really working through the freezing wind and working quickly and achieving high quality photos in an efficient manner due to the freezing temperatures. Last but not least, it is my great honor to highly recommend them to future engaged couples, new families, or new parents. We look forward to working with this dynamic couple in near future for additions to the family. Thanks again for your hard work in making our day feel like a whirlwind movie romance. Much love.

Our friends recommended The Kovalchuks. Even with the recommendation, was really nervous cause was our first time photo session plus our big day , wedding. So we have set day and time . And guess what we were late for an hour and a half . And when we got there they didn’t any madness towards us. After my boss had to come with kids, to take pictures together ( kids were extremely shy ) and I was nervous and uncomfortable about that. But Lida was extremely nice and calm which helped me! Oh and the day before she told us that we can get some other clothes for photo session if we want. And we got perfect pictures!!!! Plus we got inside and outside photoshoot . Couple minutes after we were done we got like 5 pictures!!! Can you imagine?! So I could post nice professional photos. P.S. to all of that we didn’t had to worry about how to stay , smile , watch... all Lida helped us. Extremely happy with our choice . Highly recommend!

Alex and Lidiya are exceptionally talented at capturing special moments that highlight the unspoken connection between loved ones. They come prepared to listen, offer unique suggestions and most of all, they create a comfortable and fun photoshoot environment. When you work with them, it's like having a couple that personally knows you...that also happen to be professionals! Thank you again for helping us have a special day during challenging times.
