We LOVED working with 1001 Angles for our wedding! We had a chance to meet Kuralay in person for a consultation many months before our wedding, and she really took time to get to know us as a couple and listen to what we wanted out of our photos. Even with not having done a photo session with her prior to our wedding (we opted to not do engagement photos), we felt so comfortable with her on the day of! She took the time to explore our venue and find fun spots where to take our portraits, and the pictures came out BEAUTIFUL! She really has such an eye - our photos are light and airy, with lots of candids and details to supplement the formal portraits, which is what we really wanted. She was also so efficient in taking family portraits, directing everyone seamlessly, thereby allowing us to spend more time at our cocktail hour with our guests. We're so grateful that we were able to work with Kuralay - she really captured the mood of the evening so perfectly, and we're so happy to have our pictures to look back on for decades to come!

My husband and I chose 1001 Angles to photograph our wedding ceremony and reception and we could not have been more happy with how all the photography turned out! We chose to work with 1001 Angles because of Kuralay’s specific focus on candid shots. My husband was pretty nervous about the photography part of our wedding day because he doesn’t love being in photographs but Kuralay immediately put him at ease with the whole process! We met Kuralay for coffee and from the start she was so easy to work with. She is very thoughtful and really wanted to get to know us as a couple to make sure we were on the same page for how we would like our wedding to be captured. She even took the time to scope out good photo spots near our venue to make sure she knew where the best light would be, etc. On the day of our wedding Kuralay and her team were wonderful. We had a really large wedding party (10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen) and Kuralay was great at getting everyone quickly into positions for pictures right after the ceremony. Everyone in our wedding party was commenting on how good she is at directing everyone and keeping all of us on task so that we could get to the reception. I was also really impressed by the creativity in which she approaches photography – she captured so many cool angles that I would not have ever thought of and many of those are my favorite pictures. Her eye for taking candid photos really enabled her to capture the love and happiness throughout the day. Kuralay was very prompt in her delivery of the photos after the wedding and they were all amazing. All of our friends and family have been commenting on how great the photos turned out. I can’t say enough good things about Kuralay! Not only is she a beautiful person who was a joy to work with through our wedding planning process, but she also is an absolutely amazing photographer. I highly recommend working with 1001 Angles for your wedding day!

Oh gosh! Maura! Thank you so much for such a thoughtful review! Your and Brian's wedding was dear to my heart because you came into my life through one of my favorite local wedding planners Lisa Havard, but also because you met and got married in my husband's university. Because you shared so much of your love story and allowed me to get to know you, I was able to relate and be inspired and creative. It was such a beautiful day! I'll never forget how you were getting ready by the window overlooking the place where you met your husband all those years ago. Thanks for inviting me into your lives! Love!

Kuralay was (and still is) an absolute dream to work with. I luckily found her through a wedding website and fell in love with her pictures. Each photograph truly told a story and the editing was beautiful. Everything was touched up so nicely but looked very natural it was exactly what I was looking for. I emailed her right away and she was always so quick to respond. We never even interviewed with another photographer after our first meeting my husband and I knew she was the one. Our engagement pictures were a dream, seriously everyone who saw them commented how unique and beautiful they were. She understood our vision and worked with us to make us so comfortable. Our wedding day went so well. We were already so comfortable from the engagement pictures that everything ran smoothly. Ronald the second photographer was awesome as well! Everyone in the bridal party commented on how smoothly the pictures went. Even though we have only seen the sneak peek we can tell the pictures are going to be so wonderful. The ones we’ve seen so far have been outstanding and people cannot stop contacting us about how beautiful they’ve turned out. Can not recommend 1001 Angles enough!!

Where do I begin? Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions to make during your wedding planning process. They make up such a big part of your day as they are there all day, they help dictate the flow/organization, and of COURSE not to mention leaving you with memorable photos from the day you spent so long planning. Kuralay at 1001 Angles knocks every item out of the park and she did from the beginning! From the get go, Kuralay was immediately responsive and not only was forthcoming on her own background, but she wanted to get to know me and my fiance well too. She went above and beyond to make sure to ask all the right questions, to make sure our visions were in line - and then she executed seamlessly during our wedding day. She even was so chill and cool dealing with my huge family photo requests - even as my mom would run off every 2 minutes! Onto photos - STUNNING! My fiance (now husband I suppose!) was confident that he would look awkward and weird in all the photos and K reassured him from the get go - and she totally delivered! He almost looked better than me ;) We both were so relaxed and felt right at home when it came time for portraits. We had a vision of a woodsy and romantic feel and she knocked it out of the park! My friends have been to our fair share of weddings, and everyone was wowed by all the photos she produced, and engaged friends have been asking me for her info. I could keep going, but Kuralay was fantastic and went above expectations in every facet through the whole process - stunning photos, calming presence on the day of our wedding, and professional and friendly the whole way out. Our only regret is that our wedding is over and she delivered our whole album early and we have nothing left to look fwd to now ;) Five stars all the way for K! THANK YOU!

Dear Helen, words cannot describe how much joy it gives me to read that I was able to contribute to your wedding day in such a big way. Thank you so much for being open during this entire process, for letting me into your lives and sharing so much of your story and vision. It wouldn't have been possible to create those beautiful images without your input. I loved capturing these happy memories for you - it was truly a spectacular day!

Where do I even start?! I was provided with the DREAMIEST pictures imaginable for my engagement shoot. She is an expert at making you feel comfortable and gives honest opinions. She has such a creative eye and knows how to make any location look like it came straight out of a magazine. It's airy, fun, artistic...everything I love! Also, she is just one of the most genuine and kind people around... You won't be sorry if you go with 1001 Angles Photography! Thank you again. <3

I got Kuralay's information from one of the girls I work with. After I saw her engagement photos I knew I had to use 1001 Angles! Our engagement photo session took place at the National Portrait Gallery and it was the perfect setting! I couldn't have been happier with the photos and it got me even more excited for our November 11th wedding. During the wedding Kuralay was very professional. She kept everyone on time and got all of the portraits we asked for. She posted a sneak peek of our photos the week after the wedding and I was in love! She captured everything beautifully! We just got the rest of our wedding photos back and Kuralay has wowed us again! We have already gotten so many complements! If you are in search of a fantastic wedding photographer look no further! You won't be disappointed :-)

Awww Jamie! I knew from the first email you sent me that we were meant to be :) Thanks for having me a part of your big day! It meant the world to be able to document all the joy from the first getting ready moments to the crazy fun hora!

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Kuralay is. Not only are her photographs gorgeous--we LOVED our engagement photos and our wedding photos, just beyond--but also Kuralay herself is just the best: Warm, professional, easygoing, and so talented. Kuralay takes time to find out who her couples are and what they want and she makes it happen! We could not love our photos more and she made the photos part of the event easy and stress-free. We could not recommend Kuralay and 1001 Angles more highly!!

I was introduced to Kuralay of 1001Angles by a mutual friend in the events industry, and from our first meeting, I knew she was going to be a wonderful asset to our wedding planning experience. She was prompt and professional, but more importantly, she was easy to talk to, very friendly, and confident in the service she provides, which definitely makes a bride more confident in hiring a vendor! She was flexible and understanding when we needed to reschedule our engagement photo session due to weather, and when we did get to do the shoot, she made my camera-shy (then) fiancé completely comfortable taking pictures. That talent was also super important on our wedding day in capturing a long list of pictures we had requested that included kids, immobile grandparents, and a large bridal party, and both Kuralay and her second shooter, Jay, handled the day with grace and ease. Beyond the experience of working with her as a vendor, Kuralay took the time to get to know us as a couple, which I think allowed her to capture us in our element (our favorite wedding pictures are some of the candid shots). Her work truly speaks for itself - the photographs are absolutely beautiful! It is true what they say that your wedding day flies by, and we are so thankful to have so many amazing pictures to relive the moments again and again.

Awww Katie! I'm tearing up just reading this - thank you for your kind words and for putting the privilege of documenting your dream wedding into my hands. It's been such a great journey getting to know you and your husband from the first days of you starting to plan your wedding, your engagement session and up until your big day. You were such a dream bride to work with and I loved working with your families and your wedding team you have assembled. Much love!

With all the craziness that is wedding planning, it is such a blessing to have found 1001 Angles. I'm pretty camera shy but Kuralay made ?me feel so comfortable ?I forgot she was there sometimes! Even before the day of the photo shoot, Kuralay was very responsive via email and sent us all the inf?o we would need and answered any questions pretty quickly. She really took the time to get to know us and our story. That was really important to me, I wanted someone to capture "us" and not just take ?the typical engagement photos. She exceeded those expectations. Not only did she extend the time limit of the shoot until she was completely satisfied, but we got our pictures just a few days after the shoot and love them! We've been raving about her to anyone who's willing to listen. But don't take our word for it, the quality of her work speaks for itself. I highly recommend 1001 Angles to anyone who wants a photographer who will take the time to get to know you as a couple, is personable, professional, and delivers an amazing product. I can't wait until next year for our wedding and pictures!

I am so happy that my fiancé and I found Kuralay! She is extremely talented and she takes the most beautiful pictures! We recently had our engagement photos taken by Kuralay. Before the session, I was nervous that my fiancé and I wouldn’t know what to do when Kuralay was taking our pictures. However, my nerves were soon put to ease because Kuralay is so easy to work with and she knows exactly what she’s doing. It felt as though we spent the afternoon with a friend of ours. My fiancé and I both felt 100% comfortable in front of Kuralay. Once the session was over, I couldn’t wait to see how our pictures turned out! Once we received them, they were even better than I could have imagined! I think I spent two hours looking at them over and over again because they are so beautiful! We have gotten SO many compliments from our friends and family. We’ve even heard from some that they are the most beautiful engagement pictures they’ve ever seen (which I have to agree with)! I’m so happy we hired Kuralay to be our wedding photographer! I know I don’t have to worry because I’m 100% positive that the pictures are going to turn out perfect. I couldn’t recommend Kuralay enough!

Awww Erin! Thank you so much for such kind words! On my end I feel like I got lucky with the best clients - you and Kenny are so genuine and kind and beautiful inside out! You shared so much of your story with me and came to the engagement session with props and fun outfits and you picked the most gorgeous outdoor setting, that called to my heart! Documenting your love is a privilege and I cannot wait for your wedding day! Thank you for your trust in me!

We loved working with Kuralay and ultimately chose her because of her beautiful work and background as a travel photographer (so she has a true eye for scenery, which is so important in Washington, D.C.), her easygoing style, and her competitive pricing. We had some thoughts on where we wanted both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, but she was able to suggest better options we hadn't thought about and they turned out perfect. The second shooter she chose for our wedding day, Raiza, was also great. And Kuralay got us our photos over a week early. We could not recommend 1001 Angles more highly!
1001 Angles Photography responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much for your kind words! As a wedding photographer with a background in travel I was instantly inspired by your Scottish-Czech fusion of a wedding! I loved visiting Capitol Hill for both your engagement session and your wedding! It was an honor to get a glimpse into your love story! Thank you for including me!
