Corey & Scott

From the first moment that we met Ina, we instantly felt comfortable with her. She was so down to earth and had such positive energy — we knew right away that she was the perfect photographer for our big day. Ina was incredibly responsive from that initial meeting, to our engagement shoot, and planning up to the moment of our wedding. She took so much time and care in every call, email, and meeting.

The first thing that anyone says about our wedding — whether they attended or just saw a peek on social media — is how stunning our photos are. I still can’t believe how naturally Ina captured us. The shots were so in the moment and so full of emotion. It was exactly the editorial, fly on the wall style that we were looking for. Ina went above and beyond scouting for ‘first look’ locations close to our venue and found a gorgeous beach that we didn’t even know existed. Throughout the day, the only way to describe her was stealthy. We completely forgot that she was even there and the amount of angles, and special moments she captured make it hard to believe that it was a single photographer shooting.

And speaking about above and beyond, we were connecting a week before the wedding and Ina asked if we were going to have sparklers to end the night. We hadn’t thought of it and she encouraged us to move forward, explaining it would make for a beautiful photo and even offered to bring some extra ones she had. She was right! Not only did we end up having an incredibly special beachfront moment with our guests, but they’re some of my favorite images (and currently the home screen on my phone!).

Ina is beyond special. She truly cared about ensuring everything went smoothly and that we had the most incredible experience possible. She was one of the absolute best decisions we made when planning our wedding and I recommend her to anyone I hear planning for their big day! We really enjoyed our experience with Ina. My husband and I look forward to working with her to capture more of our milestones in the future.

Ina is the absolute definition of professional. The caliber of her work and professionalism is of the highest standard. Meeting Ina the first time, on a dreary rainy day at Starbucks, she was a breath of fresh air after meeting multiple other photographers. Her work speaks for itself, but after sharing my vision with her, she came up with endless amounts of ideas for our photos. Her energy is so contagious in the most positive light and I knew she was exactly who I wanted to photograph our big day. She responded to every email almost immediately, took her own time to visit possible sites and brainstorm for our photos.

One major concern of my husband’s was that he did not want it to feel staged or like we were constantly being pulled away from enjoying our day for photos — Ina was incredible at fulfilling my husband’s request. And the photos themselves were STUNNING. We have received numerous compliments from family, friends, and even strangers who have seen that Ina’s work is some of the best they have seen.

I am so incredibly lucky to have stumbled upon Ina right here on The Knot because she is not only extremely talented, professional, hard working- she was truly invested in my wedding day and I felt that from the very start of working with her. I cannot wait for her to work on shooting my growing family in the future!

Ina was truly amazing throughout my entire wedding process. Ina was patient, kind, compassionate, enthusiastic, inspiring and fun to be around and affordable! Ina listened to our thoughts and wants for our engagement photos and elaborated on them further. She was creative and so easy to work with.

Our wedding pictures were absolutely stunning and so gorgeous. I could not love them more. Our guests and family members could not believe how wonderful Ina and her assistant were throughout the day – never obtrusive or in your face, always in the corner catching that special moment when you think no one is around. Ina was patient when all we did was laugh as a bridal party, kind when we had to do family portraits, and energetic and enthusiastic throughout the entire day. Ina did not stop smiling – nor did we.

Not only did we wake up in France the day after our wedding to a stunning preview (almost 20!) of photos, our entire album was quickly available to us. I could not recommend her enough – I am so happy to have found a photographer I know my family and friends will use for years to come.

We first met Ina at a wedding my new wife and I were in last summer. It only took that one day to decide that she was the right fit for us! Her professional demeanor coupled with her unmatched creativity made it an easy decision. Like our friends from the previous year, we were astonished with the final result. For someone who seemed hidden the entire night, she beautifully captured moments we missed or over looked. We absolutely could not be happier with our perfectly our day was captured. As we look back over the years, we will always remember this wonderful person who made time stand still, if only for a moment!

Mia & Wenick

Ina was the perfect addition to our wedding day. We couldn’t have found a better photographer to capture such a special moment in our lives! She was simply amazing. Ina was very clear and organized from the beginning, which we really appreciated considering how much was already going on. On our wedding day she was so bright, and filled with this positive energy that reminded us to relax, smile and enjoy our big day. She was unobtrusive and we barely noticed that she was there during the ceremony and reception. She blended right in while taking pictures. We wanted to keep everything graceful, organic and capture the natural lighting that we loved so much. Ina did just that and she did it beautifully. She also edited and gave us our photos within the timeline she promised. We were so blessed to have her and we plan to use her again as our family grows.

Maria & Orlio

I had the pleasure of having an anniversary photo shoot with Ina and her team for my 4th anniversary. It was a gift from my husband and I have no words to express how grateful I am for it. I am from Barcelona with residence in Long Island. She chose the perfect spot and had the ability to connect with me and offer me advice and ideas for my ideal photo shoot in advance. She gave advice of attire, make up, colors, hair… full advisor project. The result is out of the charts. The location was perfect and her work is the most outstanding I ever had including my own wedding pictures. She has the talent to envision the picture and make it happen on site.

Also not so common she has the great gift to be able to connect with people and make them comfortable and at ease during the photo shoot making the pictures come out naturally beautiful. She is the most talented professional I came across in my life. And the final pictures are just unbelievable. She made me feel a princess and the most beautiful woman while taking our pictures. I would recommend her to ANYONE who wants to have memorable pictures and a great session on a wedding day, an engagement, an anniversary or whatever occasion you want pictures to cherish forever. I am unconditional fan and can give references about her to anyone if needed. If you choose her you will make the right decision for your special day I can assure you of that.

Ina did an exceptional job photographing our wedding. We were thrilled with our photos. We received an array of photos with a variety of candid, formal, and detail shots, all of which provided the perfect account of our day. Ina was flexible, patient, and creative. We appreciated her direction while taking photos, which helped to capture the best photos. She has the ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease, and it is evident by her photos. In addition, she was present throughout our entire wedding and made every effort to photograph as much as possible. Our wedding guests, often referred to her as a “ninja” due to the fact that she would suddenly appear to capture a certain event or special moment. I highly recommend Ina. Her skills, demeanor, and commitment to the craft is commendable.

We met with Ina for a consultation and we hit it off. She understood and appreciated the little details that I was looking to capture on our wedding day and I love the fact that she is so passionate about capturing the right moments and really listening to you as a couple and what you want.

After meeting with her we hired her for our engagement pictures and they came out beautifully! We used the pictures for our save the dates and everyone was in awe of them. I can’t wait to have Ina take our wedding pictures in November and continue to use her as our family begins to grow! Definitely a photographer that will make beautiful memories last forever!

Meghan & Nelson

Nelson and I had our wedding this past March and Ina was such a crucial part of our big day! She made every moment fun (even though it was freezing). We loved her professionalism and dedication to the details of our wedding. We look back at our photos and have amazing intimate memories of our wedding day. And to top it off our guests noticed how great she was! We had quite a few compliments from our guests about how well she blended into our wedding. We can’t say thank you enough to Ina for adding great memories to our wedding.
