  • Wedding at Sopwell House. We would like to thank you Yakir for the fabulous photographs of our wedding! We are thrilled with them and our storybook album is amazing.You took a great mixture of formal and informal pictures.

    We particularly like the way you captured the reactions of our wedding guests during speeches and we have some great shots of our guests enjoying the day.

    We have had lots of compliments on our photographs and we are delighted with them.
    We would thoroughly recommend YZ Photography - we really do have some great records of our special day.

  • We were very happy with your work at both Hannah and Alex's Bar Mitzvahs. Your friendly and helpful approach put a family who are very photo-phobic at ease before the big day and during it as well.

    We were also delighted with the photographs - not only of the immediate family in set pieces, but also of the "action" shots of all of our guests. The albums are great.

  • Winter wedding at Moor Park. Dear Jo and Yakir, we just wanted to say how delighted with our wedding photos - they captured so many of the wonderful moments of our day beautifully.

    You were very creative with your shots and managed to get the lighting perfect - no mean feat on a dull day and with lots of the photos being indoors.

    Many people who have seen the photos have commented on their high quality and have pointed out how lucky we are to have such a great record of our day.

    We would definitely recommend YZ Photography.

  • From our first meeting with Yakir, to receiving our beautiful wedding album, we had nothing but a professional and caring experience. We are thrilled and delighted with our beautiful wedding photos, that have captured our wonderful day so perfectly. Yakir spent a lot of time with us, before and after the wedding, in order to understand exactly what we wanted - which we really appreciated. We would not hesitate to recommend Yakir, who along with Jo, was friendly, funny, attentive and calm!
