Yana & Pavel are both wonderful and very talented professionals. They captured such beautiful photos of our wedding day and we cannot thank them enough for leaving us with these extra special memories. A pleasant duo with an attention to detail. Love your passion and your work!

Thank you Yana and Pavel for 'capturing' every moment. Yana and Pavel went above and beyond, running around and sweating through the entire day to capture as many moments as they could. The photos turned out wonderful and their warm presence and professionalism added to the atmosphere. Would rate higher!

We’re so blessed to have had such gifted photographers capture our wedding day. On the day Yana & Pavel were both “everywhere and nowhere” all at once. My husband and I, and our wedding party felt completely at ease in their hands. The result, truly beautiful shots, that’re so natural and artistic. We first met Yana & Pavel in July 2014, when two of our closest friends got married. After seeing their photos, we didn’t given it a second thought when it came to choosing our photographers. Since our wedding, two of other closest friends asked Yana & Pavel to be their official wedding photographers. Although our weddings were all different, all six of us couldn’t be happier with our photos – Yana & Pavel captured the emotion at each wedding so perfectly, leaving us all with stunning reminders of our wedding days. Yana & Pavel took us under their wings – so helpful and accommodating every step of the way, providing guidance and superb service. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for looking after us.

Thank you Pavel and Yana for the beautiful photos! I felt the price was fair and the quality is stunning. Pavel was very creative and used various areas to create amazing pictures. I really felt he captured that day perfectly and it brings a small to my face everytime I see the photos.

From the beginning, it was clear that Yana and Pavel were highly passionate and talented. They welcomed me into their home from the outset to discuss our wedding package in detail, showing me samples of their work. Yana was always extremely responsive to my (many!) emails, highly supportive and suggestive throughout the entire process (1 year total). Our pre-wedding photoshoot was an excellent opportunity to meet Pavel, a sincere and calm presence who ensured we felt comfortable, despite being our first photoshoot! He braved the elements with us at Audley National Park, and encouraged us to climb cliffs to ensure we got perfect shots. On our wedding day, they were warm and patient (Yana fanned out my dress countless times to ensure it looked perfect!) on a very hot day, to take highly natural photos of us and our family. They have created lifetime memories. We highly recommend these artists!

Birch & Wattle are amazing and we can't recommend them enough! We initially inquired with them because compared to other photographers in the same price range, their portfolio was of a much higher standard. Once we met them, we knew we had to book them immediately; they were such lovely, genuine, warm people and they had a clear passion for capturing love stories...the kind of photographer you want to share your wedding with. On the day, Yana was amazing. She worked very hard to capture every moment and many of guests commented on how great a job she was doing. When we received the turned out incredible! The quality and everything about them was stunning and exceeded our expectations! Yana really captured the magic of the day and we are so happy we have this beautiful record of our wedding forever.

Yana and Pavel were incredible to work with! The fact that they so happily rolled with the wet weather on our day helped put us at ease, and with the snaps they captured we wouldn't want sunshine if we did it all again. Thank you so much!

Pavel was our photographer, and he was just such a wonderful presence to have at our wedding. He didn't just take photos, but he also helped me with my attire, and he added so much energy and joy into the midst. Yanna was a joy to communicate with as well.

We couldn't be happier with how natural and light our wedding photos turned out, or with how professional and lovely Yana was on the day! We are very thankful that we chose Birch & Wattle Photography for our wedding, and can't recommend them highly enough :) Thanks so much Yana!

I could not speak highly enough of Pavel and his passion for photography which really showed on our wedding day. His patient nature and making sure he captured the perfect shot really showed. I could not recommend Pavel and Yana highly enough. Thanks again!

We feel very lucky to have had Pavel as our photographer. Our wedding was on a very rainy day, however this did not ruin our pictures at all, on the opposite, Pavel managed to use it to our advantage and the photos turned out very fresh and dramatic. I am the person who has no idea how to pose for photos, but you can never tell this if you look at our pictures thanks to Pavel's experience and directions. Every part of the process has been perfect - from taking pictures to producing beautiful albums. We now have the most heart warming memories of the day in a digital form and they fully reflect our mood and style. We can definitely recommend the services of Birch & Wattle Photography, our experience has been great.

Pavel and Yana are lovely and very professional. They were able to capture all the joy and fun in our wedding. I also like the fact that they have a photo video that is absolutely brilliant. Everybody in our wedding are still raving about their photos.

Excellent on the day, captured shots we were not aware of (which are sometimes the best photos) interacted with guests and simply captured the day and the scenic golf course really well. Highly recommended

Wonderful photographic team, Yana and Pavel you worked so hard on the day as well as being discrete and friendly. I'm not sure how the photos are yet (we receive them at the end of this week) but am sure if their social media and our sneak peak are anything to go by, that we will be very happy.

It's obvious how passionate Yana and Pavel about their profession just from looking at their work. Once you get to actually work with them they are not only professional but very responsive to your needs. We wouldn't hesitate recommending them to anyone to use for their special occasion.

Pavel was very accommodating. He opts for natural shots so the pictures don't come out too fake or set-up. I wish we could've taken individual shots though. Very affordable.

My husband and I booked Pavel and Yana to be our photographers for the day and we honestly cannot say enough good things about them! Our pictures were absolutely amazing and we've had multiple friends/family compliment their work. They are so professional and lovely to work with. 10/10 would recommend!

Yana and Pavel were the best photographers we could've hoped for. They captured beautiful candids on the day and made us feel so at ease at our location shoots (even though we're both camera-shy). Amazing photos are a given; they're also very accommodating to requests and respond promptly to emails.

Yana and Pavel were amazing to work with, We were only able to afford just the one photographer and he did his best to capture all moments. Pavel had amazing patience to deal with a rowdy grooms party and did he utmost to relax the bridal party. I would use Pavel again and recommend him to any future brides!

Very good at direction giving to get the best shots for the posing and artistic shots. We didn't even notice him during the candid moments. Not only that, but he makes people feel comfortable with his big warm smile :) Even our guests loved him.

Pav and Yana are the best in the business - you won't be disappointed by your wedding photos if you chose to go with them. They are amazingly creative with what they are able to do and having a big bridal party, they managed to keep everyone in check. Loved working with Yana and Pav!

It’s clear Yana and Pavel are very passionate about what they do and it definitely shows in their work. They provide a very comfortable and relaxed environment that you don’t even notice they are there, which leads to some truly amazing photos that are so natural and capture the emotion felt by everyone on the day. We cannot thank them enough and are blessed to have such beautiful reminders of our wedding day.

We couldn't recommend Pavel and Yana more highly. From the very beginning they were helpful, friendly and easy to bounce ideas off. Our photos are incredible, given to us in the cutest way - we can't wait to get our album and prints.

From the first call to the end, Yana and Pavel have been amazing. They completely understood the rushed timeframes (due to my mothers terminal cancer and we were married in 2 weeks). We are completely amazed with our wedding photos. They truly are special and I'm so so pleased. I couldn't help but have tears in my eyes watching a slideshow of them. We are very happy that Pavel was able to capture the most beautiful photos of my family especially my mother, who sadly passed away 10 days after the wedding. I will treasure these moments.... Thank you xx

Pavel is such an amazing photographer. We are so happy with our photos which captured genuine emotion and real moments which is such a perfect memory of the day. Pavel and Yana were so professional and fun on the day and we are so glad that we booked them.

1 Jul 2015

The photos were magnificent, Pavel was able to capture the energy of the wedding day. Pavel can help position each person to have the best angle, smile, body language and sets up each photo like a piece of art. He is an attentive photographer and we could not be happier with our interaction with him and with the photos produced. The photos came with gorgeous packaging, everything they do is a piece of art.
