Dear Nick,
What can we say? We are really lucky we found you.
You are an amazing photographer and wonderful person.
Thank you so much for being part of our wedding and capturing these precious moments that we will never forgot. We must say you made everything so easy for us-before, during and after the Wedding. You made us laugh, saw tears of joy and captured every special moment during the wedding.

Thank you.

Our time with Chellise was filled with laughter, smiles, beauty, and genuine interest in us as a couple entering a new stage of our lives together. We felt immediately at ease with her, and as a result, her photos are gorgeously candid, so natural and in the moment. She showed a genuine concern in getting exactly the right shot she's after, but these are by no stretch your typical wedding photos. The light she finds is unbelievable and placement is so intimate and real. She went so far above and beyond what we expected that we haven't stopped talking about the experience. We can't recommend her highly enough, seriously. More...

There are literally no words to describe Nick. His professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses and creative. Nick was one of the best investments of our wedding. He was easy to work with and responsive leading up to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Nick was punctual and worked his tail off! One of the biggest comments from our guests was how great Nick was and how dedicated he was to getting the perfect shots. He also ensured that we got all the shots in but were fully present and enjoying our wedding. Once we took our couple shots we barely noticed he was there the rest of the night. Our photos are so special and we have one of kind shots to remember of our perfect day for a lifetime and we have Nick to thank. I highly recommend his services to everyone. More...

I have now had Nick for both my wedding and daughter's Christening. I am over the moon with him. He makes sure that no moment is left unphotographed and he leaves a personal touch that is exceptional. Love him!Nick was amazing! Very funny, patient and professional. He made me and my husband feel like models. He took pictures from the minute we showed up until the end. He made every moment of our wedding count. He's such a nice guy. We highly recommend this photographer. More...

Nick from Odessa Photography captured the memories from my special day. He was very accurate and able to take direction well. We spoke constantly on my vision and the pictures id like taken. Two days prior to the wedding nick called me to confirm and check in to see if there were any additions or updates.
The day of the wedding nick came with his assistant prompt to the time we discussed and was immediately to work. I haven’t chosen my pictures yet but I know we have thousands to choose from. Nick was so detailed to pictures; I had to request to stop. I’m completely happy with Odessa Photography and the contract created. During the reception my family and friends were pleased with nick and his funniness to get the person to smile and be comfortable. If you’re interested in a photographer that will work to make your dreams than Nick is the one!!!

I would recommend Nick at Odessa Wedding Photography to anyone. We had our wedding brunch at a hotel in NYC and he didn't need any information except what time to be there and what hotel and he was there 10 minutes early, ready and taking photos of us setting up. . Nick is incredibly enthusiastic, prompt, professional and super super amazing at making everyone feel comfortable. He made taking photos relaxing, he also gives pointers and tips on how to pose (great pro when you don't really know what to do or how to stand etc.) My guests commented about how much they love him and how great he is! He immediately recognizes all the best features in a venue and took photos of ever single detail without me having to ask him to do so. I would work with Nick again 100% and am so happy with the beautiful photos he took of our wedding brunch. Thank you Nick! More...

Nick our photographer is very kind and professional. Polite and on time. After one interview we knew we would use Odessa Wedding Photography for our wedding. Nick is very knowledgeable and has a spirit for the job. He captured all the shots he explained he would get and went above and beyond our expectations. He is extremely professional and so much fun to be with. He made everyone at our wedding wonder where we found such a good photographer and he will be getting any future business from us and a lot of our guests. He managed to capture so many beautiful memories for us and I barely noticed him maneuvering through the crowd. Thank you so much Nick for being such an important part of our blessed day. More...

My husband and I had the dream team of Chellise & Michael to photograph our private elopement in the Catskills in November. Since it was just the two of us (no guests!) it was important to us that we be super comfortable around our vendors for the day, as well as loving their work. As a wedding planner, I've seen Chellise & Michael in action many times with my clients, and their easy, down to earth approach to photography was what we needed. They're passionate about what they do, they're excited about what they do and they're FUN. They captured all the small moments of the day perfectly, ate cake with us, toasted with us and signed our marriage license, so we're connected for life. More...

I seriously can't thank Falcon and the team at Chellise Michael enough for capturing the celebration of our marriage so beautifully! They do such an amazing job capturing and editing moments in a beautiful and artistic way and looking at my pics was like reliving the special day all over again. And even when there was a bit of drama and time constraints in the beginning, Falcon always kept her calm and discreet demeanor and I’m so thankful for that as she was able to pull off some epic shots that we were absolutely blown away by! :)

So a million THANK YOUS to the amazing team at Chellise Michael Studio for being an absolute joy to work with from start to finish and I absolutely would not hesitate to hire them again!

Best,
Janice and Will

I would recommend Odessa Photography to my very best friends. Nick was absolutely fantastic. My guests, including my mother, raved about Nick's personality and experience. Nick brought out the best in every guest and knew exactly what we were looking for in each shot. The photographer's positive energy was contagious! I, the bride, was put at ease immediately when I saw Nick work. Nothing can replace experience and Nick was a true seasoned professional. The photographs were delivered within the week! I can't say enough great things about Odessa Photography. I would tell everyone that needs a photographer: you can trust the professionals at Odessa on your special day. More...

I think Nick did a great job and he exceeded my expectations which isn't easy to do.

I got married in June and Michael shot our wedding with a backup shooter. This company as a whole was totally easy and a pleasure to work with. We did first look photos which was an extremely intense moment for me. Mike couldn't have acted more like a friend throughout the afternoon. He kept it super light hearted and fun while being totally focused and professional. That was the exact feedback I got from my husband who was with Rijard. They were both great at managing our family photos also. The photos I have seen so far have captured all the things I want to remember about the day and all the feelings. I can't wait to see more! Total pros. I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a personal experience that translates straight to the photos. More...

I honestly looked for my wedding photographer last minute. And I must say Odessa photography was able to put me at ease and insure me that even though I booked so close to the date that. That everything was going to be okay. We was paired up with photographer Nick and since day one he was always there to answer any question or concern I had. Even the day of my wedding I was running a little late due to traffic and he was super understand and extra patience sand let me took little breaks here and there to tend to my toddler. The packages and pricing they offer by far the best in town. I love the fact that he took pictures at random moments which means he captured the moment without us even noticing. I went without idea of what or how I would pose and he made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and laid back. And I write this without even receiving my pictures. So imagine after I get my pictures.. If your looking for a excellent photographer that doesn't rush or is after your money Odessa photography is totally the way to go. Don't think twice and give them a call or email them. Your allowed to ask any question and they will answer them. They just wanted you to be super happy with everything More...

He made my mother in law happy! Of course, my now husband and I were also happy! He arrived on time and we never had a worry. He took all the pictures we requested and even some that we forgot in a very busy wedding day. He offers the best prices and options for packages. He was wonderful to work with! He made children and adults who were exhausted suddenly find a reason to smile for cameras!! Talented photographer with the BEST attitude. He took hundreds of photos and we also hired his staff to do our video and it also came out amazing. He even caught a shot and solved the mystery of how my MOH got bruised and pushed during the bouquet toss! Incredible money shots and memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for a great GREAT service! More...

Q&A

We are a professional studio employing full-time photographers with extensive experience in wedding photography. We use state of the art professional equipment which allows us to capture photos of the highest quality, and we always carry backups in case of camera malfunctions. Most amateurs use cheap cameras and lenses that are often slow and produce low picture quality, and most cannot afford to have a back up. Also, one needs to know how to use professional equipment. Owning an expensive camera is one thing, knowing how to use it is quite another. We also carry professional liability insurance required by most venues, something that many amateur photographers have not even heard of.

It might be tempting to try to save on a professional photographer and ask a friend or a relative to take the photos, but is it really a good idea? Does your uncle Joe have the experience and the stamina to document the entire wedding? Does he know how to photograph in a dark church or in a dimly lit reception hall? Is his equipment up to date?

Basically, hiring an amateur photographer is like gambling in a casino you may get lucky, but most likely you will leave very disappointed.

Some amateur photographers might completely lack experience in wedding photography“ they just will not know how to work in an environment with a lot of people, less than ideal lighting, and a constant flow of events. Hiring a professional photographer provides you with a guarantee that the person has the right experience, personality, and equipment to get the job done right.

We wish that customers knew exactly how much work goes into wedding photography. While it may seem simple, it is quite hard to capture good pictures for 10 hours straight, while compensating for changing lighting conditions. Also, many hours go into color-correcting and editing photographs. This is a big part of why we charge what we charge. We go above and beyond most photography studios.

The satisfaction of happy customers enjoying their memories captured in beautiful wedding albums. We enjoy being able to capture the memories for our customers to enjoy for years after their weddings.

Our founder Nick started out doing wedding photography in his native country of Ukraine, in the city of Odessa. After doing it for many years there, he relocated to the United States in 1990, and brought his unique style and craft here. Twenty-four years later, we're still just as committed to the art photography.

A wedding can be rehearsed, but the photography cannot. The most spiritual, funny, and memorable moments cannot be foreseen or planned. We specialize in formal and photojournalistic style that captures the mood and tells the story of your wedding from start to finish. Many photographers are able to make a documentary of any given day, but it takes a professional eye, an artistic approach, and elegance to create a story that reflects the beauty and excitement of your wedding day.
