Vadim Photo » Tampa Wedding Photographer

My husband and I could fill a book with all of the great feedback we have for Vadim. From the first time we met with him, we knew we wanted him to capture our day for us and we booked with him right away. His enthusiasm and passion is clear when he talks about photography and client satisfaction is a #1 priority for him.

He has a keen eye for his surroundings and positioning and his mastery of photography was evident in the photographs we received from him. Your photographer is the most important vendor you select to capture and preserve the memories of your big day. Vadim not only captures these moments, but makes them even more beautiful and special than you can imagine.

Another reason we like Vadim is his wonderful personality. He is very friendly, very responsive (always emails very quickly), always smiling and our guests loved his energy and desire to capture every moment he could. They even said the next time they need a photographer they would love to book him as well! Just from watching him work, everyone could see his passion and energy. We really hardly noticed him half the time, but that’s what was great, he was never in the way, but he was continuously shooting and catching creative shots. He is a HARD WORKER! He was running around non-stop all day for us! He captured shots from his own expertise of what would look beautiful as well as specific shots we had requested, and the results were AMAZING! And, the pictures were done in less time than we had anticipated, which was an even bigger surprise! We received the final images only a week and a half after the wedding! He knows you’re excited to see them too!

You cannot go wrong with selecting Vadim as your photographer. You will be more than satisfied with the results. Just meet with him once and you will want to book his services as well. THANK YOU VADIM! Can’t wait to work with you again in the future!!

We are not been married for a month now, and all of our family has already seen all of the wedding shots that Vadim provided us. How often do couples get to say that?!! I don’t follow the wedding photography industry closely, but I’m pretty sure the industry standard turnaround time is around 3 months. Much credit has to be given to Vadim for having the diligence to plow through the post processing so quickly to get us so many frame-worthy images. Not over-processed with obscene amounts of contrast and saturation like you see with some photographers.

All the days with Vadim went by so smoothly, the entire Sangeet and Reception party had a great time with him. Besides producing great work, he brings great energy and enthusiasm to the event, and has great people skills. Our Sangeet and Reception party commented on how fun he was to work with. I must say besides being a professional, he has a heart too! Our package did not include capturing the ceremony at the church. We figured he will capture us in our outfits at the venue anyways and besides, our church doesn’t allow any pictures taken inside during the ceremony. However, i was surprised to see Vadim waiting outside the church for us to get some shots of us as newly weds. He got the address from my brother and made a point to be there, without us asking him to do so.

Here’s what I boil my three reviews down to – Check out their website, see if you like their style. If you like his style, and have the budget to book them, then RUN don’t walk to get them for your wedding date! Vadim has been a pleasure to work with, and is a shining example of professionalism and dedication to customer satisfaction. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Fatima and Salim

All of my guests were so impressed with Vadim. During the reception he put together a short slideshow with photos from that day. It was really nice to be able to see some of the wedding pictures so quickly! Vadim works really hard and does a great job capturing the day. I would highly recommend him!

Jennifer and Bobby

Beautiful, artistic photos. Vadim is very professional and obviously very experienced. He took hundreds of photos on our wedding day, and made the most of the time we spent with him for posed photos. He also took great candids at the reception!

Maria and Ryan

If we could have rated him higher than a 5 we would have! We met with 4 different photographers and Vadim was by far the best in many aspects. He is very personable, reasonably priced, and a HARD worker. We didn’t see him sit down or even slow down the entire day! Our pictures were a million times better than we had anticipated. We also ordered an album that was out of this world! HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND VADIM PHOTOGRAPHY!

Jeslyn and Truman

Vadim has been amazing throughout our entire experience as an engaged couple and bride and groom. We did our engagement shoot with him and were so thrilled with how he made us feel comfortable and relaxed, and delivered beautiful pictures to two people who are definitely not used to being in front of a camera!

On and after our wedding day, everyone commented on how professional and awesome Vadim was. He was able to get all of the shots we wanted without using a second photographer – super impressive! He helped us plan the day’s events, directed shots when no one else was helping us, and got all of the shots we requested. Not only did I get my wedding photos back in a week and a half (I have friends who got married MONTHS ago still waiting for theirs) but they were so amazingly done.

My husband and I are graphic designers, and our wedding photography was the most important thing to us on the day. I’m happy to say that Vadim does a very professional job with the retouching as well as the raw photography. We are so impressed with the quality for the value. We were on a budget and Vadim delivered exactly what we wanted without sacrificing any quality. Highly recommended. We will never use another photographer for our important events!

Nicole and Zach

My wedding day was captured in the most beautiful pictures I could have ever imagined by Vadim Photo. Vadim’s style of photography was unlike any other photographers I had seen during my search, I knew he was the photographer I wanted for our day. I absolutely love the collection of photos he took and the album he created for us, his direction and determination to get all the shots he thought necessary was very appreciated, we have such wonderful photos as a result. Vadim is extremely professional, reliable, kind and helpful, I truly would recommend his photography services to anyone.

Christine and Eric

Vadmin is fantastic. During the planning, he was very timely when responding to our questions and was helpful in planning out the timing of the beach ceremony with the sunset. The weather forecast didn’t look good for the day of the wedding but somehow we were able to get the beach ceremony in before the rain came. Vadim was willing to get wet if that’s what it took to continue shooting to get the sunset photos we wanted. He kept pushing us to do more when we wanted to run for the car. Looking back, we are so grateful to Vadim for pushing us to continue because our photos are amazing! We recommend Vadim wholeheartedly. His professionalism, personality and talent are excellent. He deserves 10 stars but only let’s me give him 5!

Carrie and Joe


Manny and I can’t thank you enough for capturing our special day as perfectly as you did. You were wonderful to work with and we would recommend you to anyone! Thank you again for everything!!

Manny and Shanna

Vadim is amazing and was wonderful to work with. He’s professional, pleasant, and enthusiastic. He truly has a creative eye! I chose not to have a videographer for my wedding so pictures were very important to me. After looking for a couple weeks, I spoke to a friend who hired Vadim for her wedding and she highly recommended him. After looking at her photos and visiting his website I was impressed, so I hired him for both my engagement and wedding photos. He was a joy to work with, he responded quickly to my emails and phone calls and gave great advice on locations for my engagement photos.
He really captured the wedding day. He took so many photos, I was even able to see people and things that I missed during the day. I am so happy that I have these pictures to remember my wedding day.
I am more than satisfied with Vadim and would highly recommend him to anyone without any reservations.



Nely and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the amazing job you performed at our wedding ceremony and reception! We could not have asked for more. I searched all over to find the right photographer and the moment I viewed your website I knew you were the exact person who had to be trusted with the task of capturing one of the greatest events of our lives. You were terrific to work with and of extreme professionalism and courteous nature. Everyone we came into contact with has commented on what an incredible job you did and what a joy to work with. To anyone looking for a phenomenal photographer to capture your next event, DO NOT HESITATE! Vadim is the best photographer in the country. We told him exactly what we wanted and he did not let us down! We will be sure to use you in the future to ensure that our memories are captured for a lifetime! From the bottom of our hearts, we say thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sincerely, Brock & Nely Henderson 2011

We would like to take this opportunity to tell all people looking for a wedding photographer to please consider Vadim. He was truly an amazing artist and all of his work was outstanding and very professional. Additionally, we went above and beyond with his care and passion for his work. Our wedding was on December 2010, we considered several options before deciding on Vadim, but after seeing his amazing work , we knew that he was going to be the best choice. And we are glad we did, we now have memories that will last a lifetime. Our friends and family have been so impressed that are now calling him for their own personal picture sessions.
We had a great experience with Vadim, and would recommend him to anybody looking for the best. Your wedding pictures will be around for years to come, make the right choice with a true professional.

Maria & Alex

Vadim was flawless! He came to us as a referral from another local photographer and from the moment we met him it was obvious why Vadim is so highly regarded in the photographers’ community.We planned our wedding for a year from out of town, and it was great that he was so responsive to emails, phone calls, and last minute meetings. A few days before the wedding, we had the opportunity to do a pre-wedding shoot. We saw first hand how creative and how much fun it was to work with Vadim. It gave us a chance to relax together before the wedding, and Vadim really made this great experience part our wedding memories.

The day of the wedding, Vadim carried out the same professional, enthusiastic, efficient, unobtrusive, and creative manner since the day we met. He captured every moment of our wedding beautifully. Even our guests commented on how they could “just tell” he was a great photographer and they couldn’t wait to see the pictures! Neither could we!

By the time we were back from our honeymoon, our pictures were ready! It is truly amazing to see how Vadim captured our day. For the rest of our lives, we will have gorgeous pictures to show our friends and families!! We can’t thank him enough!

Angela & Monti

Vadim was a dream come true wedding photographer! Not only were his photographs stunning and exactly what I wanted, but he was also very friendly, creative, and easy to work with. He had wonderful ideas for portraits, a great eye with candids, and he took tons of pictures. He also listened to my ideas, and was able to get every picture I asked for. For example, I told him how important it was for my husband and I to get lots of pictures of our family, and he gladly raced around with us to every table so we wouldn’t miss anyone. AND after I got my pictures back I realized that he was able to get pictures of guests that made it to the ceremony but not the reception, without me even pointing them out! He went above and beyond in every area! And I got my pictures back insanely fast!! I feel lucky and privileged to have had him photograph my wedding.Erin & Billy

Vadim, Ian and I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work in making sure all the beautiful memories of our wedding day were captured! The pictures are just amazing and we could not be happier with them. Our friends and family are raving about how awsome they are. My maid of Honor even said you made us all look so great that we should hire you for all of our events! We would recommend you hands down! Your great at what you do!Jennifer & Ian

My husband and I were THRILLED to have Vadim as our wedding photographer. He was always professional yet fun and flexible. Our photos came out beautiful! We’ve received so many compliments on our photos–many people saying they could easily be in bridal magazines! We would without a doubt recommend Vadim to any couples we know getting married in the Tampa Bay area.Estefania & Kevin

We could not have asked for more from a photographer. Vadim was extremely professional, friendly and talented. We hardly even knew he was there, but when the photos came back, he really captured the whole event perfectly!! His work really helped make our wedding day exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend him!!Andrea and Brenton

Vadim, Dinara and I want to express our most sincere gratitude to you for the incredible work you did for us. You captured all the beauty of our wedding day and somehow made it look even better. It’s been three months now and we’re still looking at and sharing our wedding pictures almost every day. Everyone we show these pictures to is just completely blown away. I knew you were good, but WOW! Many thanks to you, your talent, and your hard work.

Jonny & Dinara

Oh my God Vadim!! You have no idea how I feel right now… I can’t find the words to say…those pictures are stunning, they are amazing. Thank you so much for being part of our wonderful day and making things so much easy and fun for us. Your work is beyong what I expected, you have bought tears to my eyes. Just what I expected and more since the first time I saw your website, I knew you would be the one. Again from the bottom of our hearts thanks for the amazing work, you are definitely the best at what you do!Betsy & Kenny

Vadim was so great the day of the wedding… so understanding and helpful in keeping us on track. He was so pleasant and his disposition was unlike any photographer I have ever met before. I have been to weddings where photographers have been very stern and seemed to be “put out” when you asked for certain shots or asked “will you take one of us?” Never Vadim, though…. and always with a smile. That is so important when looking for a photographer and so often overlooked. Amazing shots are only half the battle, the ability to make your guests feel comfortable around your photographer is so important too (it’s how moments are captured), and Vadim excels at this. People always say a good photographer you never know is there… I disagree. A really good photographer feels like just another friend at the wedding… only with a MUCH nicer camera then anyone else.:-)He did an AMAZING job… We don’t just like the pictures…. We love them! Everyone is just floored by them! I wish that I had a tape recorder with me over the past few days, so I could have told you all of the wonderful things that our friends, family, and loved ones have been saying about him, word for word. My facebook page has tons of comments about how wonderful our photography is and how great he was. I have heard everything from “It looks like a fashion shoot for Vogue” to “Dude, your wedding photographer kicked ass!”

We had a pirate wedding so there was such a strong possibility that our pictures would come out cheesy. Come on… a pirate wedding is a little cheesy. But he was able to capture modern elegance with and edge… the pictures are simply amazing.

He also was very helpful (I did nothing but say I want…) in getting a second shooter to take pictures of us (we were on a pirate ship and we had someone take a group shot as we went under a bridge…so cool) at an extra fee. He was really willing to go that extra mile. I hope he puts the pictures of us on his site so you can see how great our picture are…

I HIGHLY recommend Vadim. I have been thinking about doing a ‘Trash the Dress’ with Vadim… but I just can’t bring myself to destroy my wedding dress… But I almost would to work with Vadim again….

Vadim is one of the most talented, dedicated and creative photographers in Tampa Bay Area! He did an amazing job capturing the moments of the best day in our lives. We highly recommend him to anyone who wants to use his services. You will truly appreciate his talent flipping through your wedding album years after!Julia & Dennis

Vadim,We cannot thank you enough for the time and effort you put into taking Clay & Becky’s wedding photographs. Everyone loved your high energy before, during, and after the ceremony. The pictures were so beautiful. Your artistry combined with your sense of whimsy gave us photographs to cherish forever. If you ever need a reference, please include our names – I’d love to sing your praises.

With gratitude -
Debra Peterson

Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on our wedding pictures. My family is so pleased with your work. The bridal portraits look amazing. Thanks again for making my special day unforgettable.Sarah & Fred

We can’t say enough about Vadim. He did an incredible job for us. The pictures turned out great. Very professional and friendly. We were lucky to have found him. HIGHLY RECOMMEND hiring Vadim.-Kristin and Fremiot Vianna

Our wedding could not have gone any better, and part of the reason was because Vadim was the perfect photographer. The pictures that were taken outside a simple hotel, looked like they were taken at a beautiful park, because of his creativity and talent. He was also unnoticeable at the wedding as he blended into the background to take the pictures. And when he took portrait photos, his energy and professionalism were
top-notch. He was very excited about his work, and it made it very fun for us. The joke between my wife and me was that Vadim received more compliments than we did. And we had no problem with that because he was that good! My wife and I give him our highest compliments and recommendation. If anyone hires him, he or she will be receiving the upmost care, talent, and professionalism.Thank you, Vadim, for your wonderful service.

Yoon & Esther

We contacted Vadim fairly close, about 6 weeks from our wedding date. He was very prompt with his response to us. In addition, he was able to accommodate some of our special requests. We could not be more happy and pleased with his professionalism and enthusiasim towards his job. He is truly an artist with the camera. Our guests were equally as impressed with his attention to detail and his work ethic. He did whatever it took to get the shot. Our ceremony was on a Saturday, and by Tuesday we received an email from him stating our photographs and slideshow were ready. Our wedding was a destination wedding and we held our reception 2 weeks later in our home town. Had we known we would have made arrangements to have him flown in to take the photographs for the reception.We strongly recommend Vadim as your Wedding Photographer!

Tracey & Johnny

Vadim is an excellent photographer. Definetly blessed with this talent. He put all he had in trying to get the best shots with the sunset, jumping onto rocks in the water, and just being extremely flexible with them. He captured our wedding in a beautiful way. I definitely recommend him to other brides out there. He is truly talented and you wont regret it!!

Diana & Angel

We met with Vadim two months prior to our wedding. He was very professional and gave us ideas on what type of pictures to expect. Good photography was one of the most important aspects of our wedding and we looked everywhere to find a photographer we felt comfortable with. After meeting with Vadim, we knew he was a perfect match and went with him right away. On our July 4th wedding, Vadim was on-time and started taking pictures immediately. He was out of the way and didn’t interupt any of the festivities that was going on. A week after our wedding, we got proofs of our pictures and it was absolutely breathtaking. I have received nothing but compliments from family and friends. Vadim’s work is outstanding! We were so pleased, we ended up getting professional pictures done for by business website. Thanks Vadim!!!Camille & Christophe

Vadim, Jessica and I just wanted to let you know that we are extremely pleased with the quality of your work and would gladly recommend you to anyone. You really gave us a wonderful capture of our most important day and your pictures defintely bring up the emotions that we felt that day.
All of our friends and family who have seen our pictures are equally amazed and many have called them the most outstanding wedding photos that they have ever seen. Thanks again and we wish you much success and recognition in your future endowers. You truly are the master of your craft.Dario and Jessica Saric
