Nataly and Max go beyond just being photographers. They really know their stuff and pay close attention to the little things. Thanks to their advice, our whole trip went smoothly. Our elopement day turned out just as we hoped, and even so much better! We felt so relaxed and worry-free. NO STRESS. The pictures and video at the end were beyond amazing!

 They’re truly experts at what they do.

Our experience finding the right people to document our elopement in Iceland couldn’t have been better!

From the moment we got in touch with Nataly and Max in September to discuss our plans for a spring elopement, their warm, friendly, and down-to-earth nature shone through during our video call. We instantly felt they were the right choice for us, thanks to their kindness, attentiveness, expertise, organization, and genuine personalities. 

They simplified the planning process for us, suggesting beautiful spots, accommodations, and local vendors. Although we had planned for photoshoots across two days, a surprise snowstorm required us to postpone our special day. Nataly and Max handled the situation with utmost professionalism, ensuring our safety and comfort amidst Iceland’s unpredictable weather. 

Throughout our adventure, it felt like we were wandering through Iceland with two friends rather than just photographers. Beyond their wonderful personalities, their talent in photography and videography is absolutely remarkable. Our photos and videos will be cherished forever!

Choosing to work with Nikolaichik Photo was the best decision we made, and their dedication to their craft and their clients is evident in every aspect of their work. Investing in this incredible team is truly worth it!

Our time with Nataly and Max was truly flawless. Figuring out how to celebrate getting married can be really nerve-wracking, but they managed to take all that worry away and replace it with excitement! Their work in photography and videography is outstanding, but they offer so much more beyond that. Everyone we’ve shown our elopement photos and video to has said they should be entered into a contest. 

And every time we look at those images or watch the video, we’re filled with the same feelings we had on that incredibly special day, in one of the most breathtaking places in the world.

 Also, I’m usually quite shy and feel awkward easily, but they made me feel comfortable so fast! During such a special time in your life, Nataly and Max will become an unforgettable part of it. 

Choosing them is something you’ll definitely be glad you did!

Nataly and Max’s photography is genuinely a form of art and utterly remarkable! 

We got in touch with them in August 2022 and found ourselves in Iceland for our elopement just a month later. Their patience is unparalleled, and they went above and beyond to make sure our day was nothing less than enchanting and flawless. They kept a close eye on Iceland’s unpredictable weather, helping us adjust our plans at the last minute when necessary. Their kindness and support made us feel comfortable, even when we felt awkward. The preview of our photos left us speechless, and we were moved to tears by the full set of pictures and the video. We didn’t just trust Nataly and Max to capture our love story; we invited them to be an integral part of our day by asking them to be our witnesses. Their consistent communication and reassurance from our first interaction to the moment we received our complete gallery were unparalleled. We chose them for their ability to capture the genuine, heartfelt, and emotional essence of love in their photography and videography. We’re eternally grateful for their help in preserving our special day so we can cherish these memories for a lifetime. The opportunity to relive that day time and again is priceless.

Our dream of an elopement in Iceland seemed almost impossible, but it would never have become a reality without Nataly and Max. Words can’t fully express our gratitude towards them. They are the kindest people, with the most beautiful souls, creating truly extraordinary work. 

What else could one possibly wish for? 

A million thanks to you, Nataly and Max, for everything!

Choosing Nataly and Max for our elopement was THE BEST DECISION we made! 

They’re both incredibly skilled and so warm-hearted. They turned our day into an unforgettable experience and significantly reduced our stress levels. They really went the extra mile for us. Our wedding day faced unexpected rain, but Nataly and Max were up at dawn to take advantage of the brief weather break. They adeptly changed photo shoot locations in response to the changing weather, managing every detail perfectly. Interestingly, the stormy weather added a dramatic touch to our photos and videos, making them even more special than we had hoped for!

Our family and friends have been endlessly praising their work for capturing the true essence and emotion of our day.
I can’t recommend enough having both photos and video taken to preserve your memorable moments. A heartfelt thank you to Nataly and Max — we’re so grateful! ❤️

Meeting and collaborating with Nataly & Max was an absolute delight! They’re an incredibly skilled duo. Organizing our “honeymoon photoshoot” in Iceland with them was effortless and seamless. They keep in touch throughout the planning phase and even provide travel advice and suggestions. Nataly is an exceptionally talented photographer; she guides you on how to pose and offers clear directions to ensure the photos look stunning. She has a remarkable knack for capturing beautiful shots. 

The photos Nataly and Max took will be treasured forever. We highly recommend them!

We spent a lot of time looking for the perfect photographers for our wedding. When we came across Nataly and Max, these amazing, professional people, we knew they were the right choice to capture the most important day of our lives! Finding them was like finding friends, not just photographers. Working with them was great, even though it was cold and windy. 

It felt like we had known Nataly and Max for years because they are so friendly and easy to get along with!

 It’s been over six months since our adventure in the Faroe Islands, but every time my wife and I look back at our photos and videos, we get so excited and miss not only the Faroe Islands (we definitely plan to go back) but also Nataly and Max. 

Thanks to you both for putting in so much effort and for the high-quality work. You’re the best!

My elopement in Iceland was one of the happiest days of my life, and Nataly and Max were key in making it as wonderful as it turned out to be. 

They’re incredibly professional, quick to reply, and were a huge help in organizing the day and our travel plans. 

Whenever I had a question, they were there with answers and recommendations. We were a bit worried about posing for photos since it was new to us, but Nataly was fantastic at making us feel at ease and even enjoy the process! 

The photos I got back were better than I could have ever hoped for. I’m still in awe of their work that I see on social media. The memories they captured so beautifully on our big day are something we’ll treasure forever.

Nataly took care of all my worries before we went to Iceland. She got back to me really fast, even though we were in different time zones.

 Our small wedding in Iceland would not have happened without her help and support. Nataly and Max are super professional, cute, and easy to get along with. They made our special day even better and one we’ll always remember. 

We’re so grateful they were there to capture our happiest moments. Love the photos and video so much!!! ♥♥♥

The first time we met them online, we instantly knew we wanted them for our big day! They were so welcoming and easy to talk to. They always got back to us quickly, which made planning our elopement a lot less stressful.

They made sure we felt cozy and comfortable the whole day.

We really want to say a big thank you to Nataly and Max for being awesome photographers and making our big day so special and unforgettable! 

Nataly was super helpful with all her tips before the wedding and even helped me calm down (because planning a wedding can be super stressful). Our day was just perfect! Nataly was great at making sure everything went smoothly and always made sure we were having fun and liked what was happening. And we absolutely love the photos we’ve seen so far, can’t wait to see all of them!

Thanks again to Nataly and Max!

From the start, we dreamed of eloping in Iceland, but since we’re from California, we needed the perfect team to turn that dream into reality. 

After some searching, I found Nataly and Max and quickly got in touch. Their communication was top-notch. After a video call, we instantly felt they were the perfect match for us. They’re incredibly knowledgeable and provided amazing support as we prepared for our big day.

Thanks to their planning and expertise, everything went off without a hitch. We never felt stressed at all! Working with them was a fantastic experience; they made us feel so at ease. They were always ready to answer any questions and offer help. 

Our special day was absolutely perfect, all thanks to Nataly and Max. We can’t thank them enough for making our dream come true. They are truly the best! Thank you both so much!

With deepest thanks,

“The photos speak for themselves! Nataly is a true artist and very easy to work with. Nataly helped us to pre-plan wedding day locations and there was no doubt in my mind the photos would turn out amazing. She is a calm, kind, and pleasant personality to have around on the day of your wedding as you spend so much time with your wedding photographer. Her work is truly stunning and we are so grateful that she captured our magical day. We highly recommend Nikolaichik Photo!!!!”

“My wife and I had a once-in-a-lifetime wedding in the beautiful setting of Iceland, and we simply could not have asked for better photographers on the day. They’re such a wonderful, warm and comforting team, and their work is way beyond any wedding photos we’ve ever seen.

We got married in the midst of lockdown, and whilst juggling tests and accommodation was tricky, we let Nataly and Max take the reigns on the day of the wedding, and it was honestly the most relaxing experience of all. They took us to beautiful settings that we’d never heard of before or expected would make for wonderful photos — even some secret spots off the beaten track, which made for some of the best photos of all. We had a few spots in mind that we wanted photographs, and then they handled the rest.

Leah and I have just received all of our final photos back, and we could not be happier. If you’re on the fence, I 100% urge you to go with Max and Nataly. They were nothing short of phenomenal!”

“Nataly and Max, I don’t even know where to start! My fiancé made the best decision to have you guys capture our proposal which I could not believe you guys knew from the very start. As this was our first shoot, you made us feel so comfortable and let us be in our natural element which we loved. Rain, cold or wind — nothing stopped you guys from capturing our special day and we will forever treasure these breathtaking pictures taken from beautiful Iceland.

“We exchanged our vows by the cliffs or Arnarstapi in Snaefellness Peninsula, Iceland. None of it would have happened without Nataly and her husband, together they form an A-team wedding team of Nikolaichik Photography. Nataly takes breathtaking photos that capture emotions and her husband, Maxim captures our moment in video. We were recommended to Nikolaichik via our photographer friend who cannot make it for us and the rest is history. Six months in and we’re still in touch and in fact received a little gift, a wooden box of surprise just in time for Valentine’s tomorrow. Having the right photographer makes a world of difference in your biggest day and moment of your life and for us both, Nikolaichik Photo was the only right choice. Finally, Nataly also provides some local experience on where to go on Nick’s birthday celebration, this local tip had no tourist. We were also provides coordinates to secret waterfall that requires a small hike, it made our ongoing honeymoon in Iceland after that very interesting and we both will cherish this memory and Iceland for the rest of our lives”

“Everything about Nataly and Maxim Nikolaichik was amazing. They made everything so easy. It was quite stressful trying to find the a photographer and videographer for our small wedding in Iceland, but when I stumbled upon them online and sent them a inquiry their quick response and friendliness immediately caught my attention. As soon as I spoke with them it felt right. They were a husband and wife team with plenty of experience, they had a beautiful portfolio, they were priced reasonably, and they responded so patiently to each and every question. When we met on our wedding day they were so professional and at the same time so warm. We were quite nervous about having cameras pointed at us so often but they were so encouraging and reassuring. They knew exactly where to take us, making the extra effort to bring us to beautiful places for our shoot. They worked so well with our friends and family as well. I had a bad headache the day after my wedding and they were even prepared with some medication to give me. They knew lots of beautiful places in Iceland. Gave us plenty of tips and stories, and were always ready to go the extra mile. They were on time with everything as well.
They were so kind, professional, and accommodating to us that when we said our goodbyes after shooting I was in tears. It was amazing how intimate our friendship had gotten in just two days as they had captured and recorded a very intimate moment in our lives.
The first 10 photos came after 10 days and they were AMAZING. beautiful beautiful photos. How they made ordinary people seem like part of something extraordinary is a talent! The photos and what they captured was brilliant. I wanted to frame each of them.
The rest of the photos and the video came after 90 days. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing it was that they captured every single important moment on our wedding day. The video was mind blowing. Everything was so good and perfectly captured and artistic. In the hurry and stress and nerves that is involved on the day of your wedding you tend to forget the little details. Natallia and maxim captured everything perfectly. It was perfectly and beautifully preserved. I am forever grateful.
If you are looking to have a wedding / elopement or any special event you want to remember forever. I highly highly recommend the Nikolaichik team! 10/10.”

ANJARA + PEDRO | Secret elopement in Iceland, Vik

“Natalia and Max are a young and adventurous couple and connecting with them was effortless. Sharing our day with them felt like a celebration of our marriage instead of a photographic session. They’re easy to communicate with and answered all of our questions before the big day. Natalia was more than our photographer, she was a friend, and gave me all the recommendation I needed from a local person (we didn’t know anyone from Iceland nor anyone who’d get married in Iceland). The session started in the morning and they were on point. We drove from Reykyavik to Vik and made several stops to take photos. They know the best and private places in Iceland so your photos will be unique and beautiful. They stayed with us for more than 8 hours and allowed us to have champagne after the ceremony and even took amazing photos of it. I would recommend them blindly and hope to have them as photographers again”

DIANA + TIM | Fun wedding in Iceland, Thingvellir

“Nataly and Maksim were an absolute pleasure to work with! You can really tell how passionate they are about their craft with their preparations and attention to detail — they took the time to visit the reception location and the rooms where the bride and groom were going to get dressed to understand how to make the space and people in it look beautiful. During our adventure wedding, which entailed 16 hours of continuous shooting, Nataly and Maksim were meticulously capturing all the wonderful moments we shared with our guests. Additionally, they went above and beyond in everything they did — from suggesting to use their instant camera during the reception to add more fun for the guests, to filming some extra interviews as a surprise ending in the video they gave us. The photos were artistically stunning, and skillfully captured the emotions on faces, even those that were taken on a very dark reception dance floor. I cannot stop smiling when looking at the photos Nataly took, as they take me back to those wonderful moments. I can confidently say that hiring Nataly and Maksim to do our wedding photo+video was one of the best decisions I made in the entire wedding planning process :) I highly recommend them!”

ASHLEY + TOM | Summer midnight sun elopement in Iceland

“Our adventure with Nataly and Max was incredible! They have so much knowledge of Iceland and they aren’t afraid of anything. Our photoshoot took place in the middle of the night and our first destination was Háifoss. We hiked down in wedding clothes to greet the unbelievable waterfall face to face. What really impressed us was that Nataly and Max made the hike the day before, so they were prepared. The hike is very steep and full of rocks but that didn’t deter any of us. As for the photos, Nataly and Max gave great direction. My husband and I were so worried about how to pose but these guys made it seamless and natural. But we didn’t stop at Háifoss! Nataly and Max took us to three other locations for photos including another waterfall and a hot spring! The entire photoshoot felt very personal and tailored to us. Nataly and Max were so patient and motivated to capture the best photos. The views were breathtaking and worth every step! If we had not asked for Natalia and Max, I don’t think we would have ever gone. It was definitely an adventure we will never forget!”

“Nataly and Max were amazing photographers! A week before our photo shoot, Nataly let us know how windy Iceland was and wanted to make sure we were going to be warm for our photo shoot! When we got to Iceland they gave us our first location and from there they took us on an adventure! We went to about 5-6 different areas and some of the treks were a little difficult but definitely worth it! I love how they took us to different little hidden spots! Especially one where we had to cross a stream with wet rocks! One of our sites, there were TONS of tourists but Nataly’s did an amazing job at photo-shopping them all out and the picture came out absolutely beautiful!
