Welcome

My name is Denis Gostev. I would like to welcome you to my work and share the stories of the most exciting and significant day in people’s lives - their wedding! Be it a romantic intimate ceremony in a park or a glamorous affair in a castle, an exciting adventure on a luxurious yacht or a sophisticated reception on a trendy rooftop - every wedding is a unique love story condensed to just one day where every moment is a memory in the making. I hope my vision will resonate with your experiences and convey the passions, the emotions, and, of course, love.

  I am guided by empathy and connection to people to create meaningful and impactful images. I thrive to show the celebration of love in its pure form, with laughs and tears, special touches and little dramas, fleeting connections and sentiments. Your commitment, your love and your story are my inspirations!

My approach to wedding photography is simple: I want to show how amazing you look on your wedding and to to capture all the genuine and unforgettable moments of the memorable day. I shoot for (pun intended) for the most natural and realistic images.  Aside from designated time for posed portraits and the photos of family and friends I stay as unobtrusive as possible to maintain the integrity and spirit of the day as if I am not even there.

Denis Gostev was referred to me by a common friend to photograph my wedding in the Catskills in New York state. I booked him, because his photos were elegant and beautiful and his website was simple and modest — the photos spoke for themselves. He exceeded all expectations! I would highly recommend Denis to any couple thinking of hiring a professional wedding photographer. Denis did a terrific job of capturing our wedding, despite the fact that the wedding was held indoors with very bad light and little decorations. Also, we didn’t allot much time for creative shots, but Denis managed to capture quite a few creative details. He covered all of the small details, the group pictures, and many photos of people in motion – dancing, laughing, toasting. I think his expertise in sports photography is what makes him so great. I think I got much more than what I paid for — Denis came all the way from NYC very early in the morning and brought an assistant. He also worked extremely hard, trying to capture every single moment and running back and forth between the groom’s and bride’s parties. Prior to the wedding, he was prompt in his communication and had a contract for us to sign. We had a lengthy Skype conversation to discuss the timeline of the wedding. He also followed up with the venue on his own accord to provide them with a photographer’s insurance. Book Denis and you won’t be disappointed!
