There's nothing better than receiving a "Thank You" card in the mail from your client - you know you've done something right.

From the very beginning, client care is at the forefront of my business. When you hire me, you aren't just hiring a photographer to capture your day, I have the responsibility of telling your story in beautiful photographs, not just for you, but for future generations. I am so proud to be able to not just have clients but have clients who turn into friends. Have a look at some client love, and you can find many more on Google.

"From the moment we met Aniya, we knew that it was a perfect match and that we had to have her photograph our Wedding Day. Not only is she extremely professional, but she exudes incredible energy that we knew we wanted on our day.
She made us feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera and always kept it fun!! Through the lens of her camera, she was able to draw on every single feeling and emotion that was circulating, with the end product giving us
something to treasure for the rest of our lives.
From start to finish, Aniya made this entire experience for us so amazing and memorable, both through the images she captured and the support she provided. We would highly recommend Aniya for all your photography needs and look forward to working with her again!!" - Ashley and Dylan

"Working with Aniya was an absolute pleasure! My favorite thing about her was her enthusiasm. From the moment I contacted her after our engagement, I could feel her excitement to be a part of our wedding. She was with me every step of the way. She was always available to answer questions and make sure the day went smoothly. While taking photos, she made us feel like stars, constantly giving us praise and direction and bringing out the best in us, and our photos totally reflect that! I especially loved how she was really involved in the reception and on the dance floor capturing those key, unforgettable moments. We feel like we are reliving the day every time we go through the photos! My husband and I will be forever grateful to her and Matteo for their amazing work." - Jade and Nick

"We cannot recommend Aniya enough! Do not hesitate - if you are getting married this is the photographer to book. From the moment you see her photos; her incredible talent is obvious as every photo truly tells a story and captures every emotion. As soon as you look at a photo it feels like you are suddenly teleported to that very moment it was taken. There was no question we wanted Aniya to be our wedding photographer and she was the very first vendor we booked after we were engaged.
From the second you reach out to her there is next level of professionalism in every response - the whole process is laid out clearly and there is open and fast communication. That being said, she is also the most friendly person and makes the whole experience feel like you are dealing with an old friend. The absolute best experience we had with any wedding vendor.
You can expect to feel comfortable, confident and are guaranteed to have fun while taking photos. As two people who feel awkward in front of the camera she really made us feel at ease and relaxed. You can also guarantee that she will capture every special moment and little detail from your day from the beginning to those fantastic party moments at the end!
Within days of the wedding, she gifted us some amazing 'sneak peek' photos so that we could share them on social media with our family and friends. The entire gallery was turned around on time and she even included a beautiful slideshow with some of the best moments of our day. Every single photo is absolutely amazing - we loved that they aren't overly posed and there are natural candid moments - captured beautifully.
The wedding day goes by so quickly and can be such a blur - but you can count on reliving it every time you look back at your photos. All I can say is Thank YOU!" - Janine and Morgan

"Aniya was amazing from the moment we had our first skype chat, all throughout the wedding day, and thereafter! She is funny, kind, a blast to work with, and above all, extremely professional. We could not recommend her enough, it was the best day of our lives, and we get to relive it all over again every time we look back at her photos. She captures 'In the moment' and 'Real' pictures, which is exactly what we were hoping for and exactly what we got. She's the best!" - Rachel and Alex

"Life photography by Aniya deserves 10 stars!!

Before I was engaged I followed Aniya's photography on Instagram and instantly fell in love with how she told a story through her photography of each of her clients. I knew one day that if I was to get married I would choose Aniya. And boy do dreams come true!!!
What was important to me was how she could easily capture emotions in her photography. But that was just the icing on the cake, from start to finish Aniya has been amazing.
I remember meeting with her and chatting about our wedding plans, what I was excited about and what I was nervous about. I felt confident knowing I had a photographer who understood what I was feeling. She told me ' Your wedding, your way'.
My husband and I are both in love with our wedding photos! We have these beautiful photographs that remind us of our love and that make us feel all the emotions we felt on our wedding day. We recommend you to choose Aniya to capture your special day, you won't regret it!!!" - Sharen and Shane

"My fiancée and I booked with Aniya to do an engagement shoot and could not have been happier with the experience. Aniya is so fun to work with. She did an amazing job making us feel comfortable and she made the whole experience feel special. When you look through her wedding portfolio, there’s certainly a sense of realness that is captured- and I was happy to see that sense carried through even in a more “staged” photoshoot environment. Aniya is awesome and her work speaks for itself— if you have a special moment or celebration in Barbados, Aniya’s the girl to capture it." - Anthony and Kelly

Beach Wedding Best Barbados Photographer

"Incredible!! You were so great at making us feel comfortable behind the camera and captured some of the most precious moments we’ve ever experienced. The images turned out to be so gorgeous and the candids you snapped are some of our very favorites. You were extremely accommodating, professional, and so much fun to work with! I felt as if I'd known you for ages! You answered all of my questions and offered some very helpful insight in regards to choosing our location. I could not ask for a better person or experience. You are truly talented and your photography skills are reason enough to return to Barbados! We cannot thank you enough for being part of our special day." - Liz and Robert

"Aniya is the kind of person that as soon as you meet them--you know that ya'll will be best friends. My husband and I currently in the states. We only met Aniya on the day of the wedding! We did have plenty of virtual meetings and phone calls, though! Honestly, We weren't very fussy with the wedding details. We just wanted great photos and she delivered. Anytime I need fantastic family photos over the years; I know that we are going straight to her! As much as I hate giving away my secret to my beautiful wedding photos. I would 5/5 recommend Aniya." - Dr. Jake and Amanda Valentine.
