Yana and Pavel went above and beyond all our expectations. From the moment we met we knew we were in good hands, they captured our day beautifully and made us all feel so at ease. We love all our photos from the start of the wedding all the way until the dance floor. Thank you so much.

Jana and Pavel were absolutely lovely to deal with! Jana was friendly and professional with all the organisation leading up to the wedding, and Pavel was an absolute asset on the big day, directing and organising people. Then we got our photos and were absolutely blown away. They were more beautiful than we could have imagined, couldn't be happier with them!

Yana was absolutely outstanding. We were such a difficult couple in the sense that we just wanted to go and enjoy the party but Yana was able to keep us on track, capture the most beautiful moments and still get us to our party on time. We have received our photos and they look absolutely amazing. Feeling so luck to have had Yana as our Photographer. Thank you so much Yana. We will be highly recommending you. Love Em and Chris.

Pavel and Yana were such a pleasure to work with and we really appreciated it when they were able to rescheduled with us when our wedding was postponed by covid. We can't thank them enough for bringing their experience and talent to our day and making the planning process so smooth. We really felt that they are such warm and beautiful people and helped to make our day extra special. Pavel did such a wonderful job putting our nerves at ease and helping to guide us in such a kind and gentle way. Yana did a great job checking in with us throughout the night and making sure we got all the shots that we wanted. Cannot recommend them highly enough!

First off I would like to just say a massive Thank you to Pavel and Yana for our wedding photos. Pavel was our photographer for our pre-wedding shoot and wedding and we would not be happier with the photos. Pavel will do whatever it takes to get the perfect shot and our photos. Our photos are so natural and I can't stop staring at them. Yana was amazing to communicate with and I felt so at ease knowing I was being looked after and did not have to worry at all. Everyone from our wedding has commented on how well Pavel and his second photographer captured our day. You can see how it felt, the laughter, the emotion and the love. I recommend Birch & Wattle Photographer to everyone. It was so nice knowing your photographer and having them know us unlike a lot of big companies. Thank you!

We highly recommend Yana and Pavel to photograph your wedding. We had our wedding booked in Sydney and due to Covid decided to move it to Wagga 10 days prior to the day. Yana and Pavel were so flexible and understanding of our decision and were very easy supplier to work with. They readily accepted the change of location, even coming down a day earlier to scope out the new venue before our wedding. Our pictures are beautiful and capture the happy day perfectly.

We had an excellent experience with Yana and Pavel. We booked a package which included two photographers for the whole day as well as an album. The photographs and album were absolutely beautiful. Yana and Pavel did an amazing job and were courteous with our guests while doing so. If you want a stress-free day and don't want to compromise on quality, book in with suppliers like Yana and Pavel :)

We both could not recommend Yana & Pavel highly enough - they contributed so much to our special day - from the very beginning, my wife arranged the photography with Yana from London, and she was super engaged, helpful and gave so many fantastic suggestions for how to plan the photography. On the day, Pavel was our photographer and he was incredible– dedicated, passionate and so committed to getting the most wonderful photographs that will remain memories for us forever – including politely shooing passers-by :) This incredible enthusiasm and energy extended to the wedding reception as well – and the photos were superb. Thanks so much Yana & Pavel, we really appreciated how you contibuted to make our day so special!

Pavel and Yana were amazing, they are both so patient and clam and reminded me throughout the day to stop and take it all in. Their work is also exceptional and they get the best creative shots without doing any awkward and uncomfortable poses. They really focus on getting the perfect images, taking in consideration the lighting and surroundings.

Yana and Pavel were so easy to deal with during the process and are actually just really nice people. Even though it rained on the day, they were still able to work around the weather and be so flexible around photographing our wedding. They have produced some really great shots from the preview we have seen and we cant wait to receive our final photo's.

You couldn't ask for better photographers than Yana and Pavel. We had such a good time and they were great at putting us at ease (my wife kept mentioning how great they were at keeping her calm on the morning of). We both appreciated their warmth and great company. Of course, they take amazing photos. We love how they all came out. We couldn't be happier with how the day went are wholly grateful for the lasting memories they have given us.

Thank you Pavel and Yana for taking care of us on our wedding day! We are so blessed to have shared our special day with them and to have such reliable and professional photographers to capture our wedding day. We absolutely loved the final results and looking through the photos was like reliving our wedding day all over again. They captured the most important moments and genuine expressions of our loved ones which made it very memorable to us. When we met to discuss our needs, we were greeted with superb hospitality and an impressive portfolio. We thought their pricing for the all-day package was reasonable but Pavel and Yana delivered their service beyond expectation! They were punctual, caring, detailed, super efficient and gave 200% in what they do . We absolutely recommend Birch & Wattle Photography! Thank you for making our day super special! <3 Eric & Angelica

I could not recommend Yana and Pavel highly enough! They are both professional and attentive, and so easy to communicate with. Pavel shows such dedication and creativity in his work, and they both made us feel so comfortable, both on our pre wedding session as well as our wedding day. The end result was absolutely beautiful photos that we were so happy to share with our family and that we will cherish forever.

Yana & Pavel's kindness, patience, professionalism, attention to detail, punctuality and creativity is exceptional. We chose them because of their great portfolio and we did not regret it. It was cloudy & rainy on the day of our wedding however, Pavel managed to capture our special moments with natural light, organised everyone and made sure that every shot is perfect. Pavel & Yana did an amazing job and we are grateful for it. We love their friendliness since the beginning. They made us feel that our wedding is very important and not just one more wedding to shoot. We definitely recommend them as they made us superstars not just for a day but for the rest of our life as we see our wedding photos. -Anna & Jonathan

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
