Meet Julian Ribinik

Today we’d like to introduce you to Julian Ribinik.

Hi Julian, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
We are Julian and Evgenia Ribinik. Born in the different parts of the former Soviet Union, we met at an outdoors photoshoot on one of the coldest January days.

Between the two of us, we spoke three different languages and were always drawn to timeless candid photography.

Julian has a special passion for photojournalism and street photography while Evgenia really enjoys creating sensual imagery. Bold colors and black and white backdrop of NYC determined their wedding photography style and years of working side-by-side has given the couple a sixth sense of what beautiful imagery looks like.

Together we capture most intimate moments of our couples’ stories.

We were married in the heart of their favorite New York City and are raising two beautiful daughters and, as of recently, the most amazing adopted pup.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
There were ups and downs, we learned a lot along the way, we believe main struggle was to determine who are OUR brides and grooms. Who are the couples who LOVE what we do. Once we have figured that – it is all smooth sailing because we work only with couples who love our work – and hence, it is fun and pleasure and not really work for us!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Julian Ribinik Studios?
Choosing a wedding photographer is probably one of the most important decisions the couple makes after the venue and the outfits. It is a tremendous task for the overwhelmed bride (who typically does all the planning) and groom. Many weddings online look the same and for a non-professional, it’s often impossible to tell the difference between the styles. How do they know who is the right fit for them in terms of photography? Think about what you are looking to have as coverage and the final outcome. Do you like to be bossed around and bothered throughout the whole wedding day? Or would you rather spend an hour of quality time with your photography team to get the best formal shots and then enjoy your wedding day and be photographed by professionals who can get the most amazing candid shots without putting you (and your guests) into awkward poses? Most people are not comfortable with being in front of the camera. If you are one of them, we are the photographers for you. Even when we pose you during formal images, the end result looks candid, photojournalistic and true to your personality.

We know what we are really good at: we are masters of formal images, images of the couple’s most amazing moments during the wedding day, tearful and happy speeches, capturing emotions.

Many people don’t realize the impact the photographers have not only on the wedding day but on the energy present while they capture the couple and the guests.

Many photographers can make pretty pictures but only a few can reflect the emotions and the feel of the day into their images.
