Jenna & StevenIna. I don't quite know how to start a review on this amazing woman. Not only is she an incredible, hardworking, exuberant, and gets the right shot every time kind of photographer, but she is an astounding person as well. I actually met Ina at a friend of mine's wedding. She was the photographer and we had an instant connection. She made the entire group feel so comfortable and wanted us to be ourselves. We started joking that she was our long lost best friend that we never knew existed. Three years later when my now husband proposed, Ina was the first and only vendor we were absolutely 100% sure on immediately following the engagement. We had our initial engagement shoot with Ina on a super chilly November day on the water in LI. Despite the icy wind and cold rainy ocean air, Ina worked her tail off. She was not only patient with me when I wanted to change my outfit 105686 times out in the elements, but she embraced it. It became a part of the whole experience. My husband is a photographer, and has spent essentially his whole life behind the camera. Naturally, he had his reservations about doing an engagement shoot and being the focus for a change. Ina had a way about shooting that made everything feel so private and intimate. There were moments where we almost even forgot she was there, while she still had such a strong direction. We couldn't have been more thrilled with the engagement photos. My favorite thing about these photos was hearing all of our family and friends who know us better than anyone tell us that they perfectly capture who we are as individuals, as well as a couple. We had a similar experience with our wedding day shoot, except better. I can say all the same things, but now she was working with 18 others. We had a very large wedding party and Ina gracefully and powerfully managed everyone with perfect direction and ease. Based on her sneak peak, which we received barely 2 days after our wedding, she had a full understanding and deep seeded connection to the vision that we had created. She committed full heartedly to capturing every detail in the most elegant and creative way. As the bride, she made me feel beautiful, comfortable, and completely confident on the day that every bride needs those things most. Ina, truly made the whole experience just a little bit easier. I would recommend her 1000 times over. Have no reservations. If you are lucky enough to call yourself her bride/couple, then you are lucky enough.
Kristina & JosephWhere do I begin? Ina is amazing. Not only is she an amazing person but her work is gorgeous. My family and friends LOVED her. She really took charge (as working with a large bridal party can be overwhelming) and made everyone feel comfortable. My mom said to me “everyone hates their photographer on their wedding day”. Well, I LOVED Ina and wanted to be around her. I’m so sad the wedding is over since we can’t work together anymore. It was truly a pleasure working with her and I hope we can work together in the future
Marie & LukeIna is everything I have always wanted in a wedding photographer. It was important for me to find a photographer with a natural, intimate, not so much "posed" style, and I am so grateful to have found that in Ina. She is not only incredibly talented, she is a sweet and loving person. She was a true blessing on my June wedding day, from helping with my veil, to her calming words of encouragement. I have always been shy in front of the camera, but Ina has transformed me. She makes you feel so comfortable, and taught me some techniques in how to pose. I greatly admire her art and her commitment to her business. Her photos are simply breathtaking and she is truly a master of her craft with an eye for detail. She captures those fleeting intimate moments that pass us by and are easily forgotten, and it is a gift to have these moments captured forever in her photography. My guests and bridal party continue to rave about her! We love her so much in my family that Ina is also photographing my sister's Fall 2018 wedding. I am so happy that I found you, Ina! So lucky to have you as part of our family! Thank you for everything
