Asya studied film and photography in Saint Petersburg, Russia and she has worked on multiple movie sets in New York as a still photographer. She has a dedicated gift for balancing composition, sculpting light, and capturing exactly the right moment in her images. Asya enjoys the unique mediums of both video and photography, but most of all, she loves to connect with people and share their stories through her images. Her light and airy aesthetic brings out the gentle beauty of every scene she photographs.
We worked with Asya (video) and could not have been happier. They were on time and knew how to keep things moving to get all the best photo ops on the estate. We even finished ahead of schedule which was wonderful - nice to have an extra minute to relax before the ceremony. We had the space clean/tidy for their arrival but they went the extra mile with rearranging a bookshelf to enhance the aesthetic. My mom had concerns that the videographers would be in the way but this was not the case - everyone blended in and I barely noticed them throughout the night. Thankful we did the video since Grandma ended up missing the ceremony (logistics issues). The sound and quality is exceptional and I'm glad we have all the speeches and the full ceremony on tape.
Emma and her team are amazing. They have been extremely flexible through the difficulties of this year. We had the pleasure of working with Aysa for both our engagement photos and our micro wedding. The photos turned out perfectly and the photographer made us feel super comfortable. We look forward to working with Emma's team next year.
Emma Cleary and her team are absolutely amazing! My wedding was originally scheduled for May 23rd but due to COVID we had to postpone to July 25th. We then had to change our venue to a restaurant in a completely different location 2 weeks prior. Emma was nothing but helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process. On the day of Massimo and Asya did a wonderful job. Friends and family continue to comment on how professional, kind, and helpful they were. We ended up needing them to stay an extra hour and they did so with no question. Fast forward a few weeks and we already got back all our pictures. They are so stunning and beautiful. I can not recommend Emma Cleary and her team enough!
We worked with Emma for both our engagement shoot and wedding, where Dimitri also did photography and Asya and Michael did videography. The entire team is warm, fun, skilled, and efficient. They added to the spirit of the day and made sure we got all the posed and candid shots we hoped for without disrupting the flow of anything. They captured the joy, love, warmth, and beauty of the day in a natural and genuine way. I could not be happier with how our photos turned out, have gotten endless compliments, and am so happy we chose to work with Emma and her team to capture our wedding!
