JORDAN NELSON & NICK GOLDY
THE STABLE AT RIVERVIEW, NORTH CAROLINA ON DECEMBER 5, 2020
Jordan Nelson: They are absolutely amazing to work with and I could not have imagined anyone else capturing my wedding day! They make you feel so comfortable throughout the hundreds of pictures you take. After I saw them photograph my brother's wedding I knew that I had to get them for mine! All of the guests loved them and they are so organized that the family portraits went so smooth! Our sunset photos are absolutely amazing! I will cherish each and everyone of these photos and I will forever recommend Studio Sonya as a wedding photographer to anyone I know!
Doris Nelson (bride's Mom): Hands down best photographer ever. He and his wife, Sonya are a perfect team. Can’t wait to see all of photos of Jordan and Nick’s wedding and videography by Gurbir’s wife Ever After Videography. They did my son’s wedding and every picture was stunning. Great, friendly and most polite couple. Love them!
DANA TAYLOR & JAMES PARKER
LENOIR, NORTH CAROLINA ON OCTOBER 18, 2020
Dana Taylor: You can’t go wrong with Studio Sonya as your photographer! Gurbir is the main photographer, and upon our first meeting with him we were blown away by his presentation. Yes the photos presented of his work were beautiful, but the way he presents himself - he was so professional, confident and most of all passionate. On the day of the engagement photos, he drove over 2 hours to a place that we had found (in the middle of no where), and he found the most unique places to take pictures despite not knowing anything about the area prior. He completely focuses on you and is so down to earth he can talk and joke all while capturing amazing candids. He didn’t rush us (and we had 4 outfit changes, close to 3.5 hours of pictures). If the engagements session pictures are any indication of what our wedding day photos will look like, I know we will have photos to cherish for many years.
KATHLEEN NICEWICZ & JOHN COOPER
BELEWS LAKE, NORTH CAROLINA ON July 4, 2020
Kathleen Nicewicz: Gurbir and Sonya are absolutely amazing! They are both so incredibly talented and also very kind-hearted individuals! As soon as we got our engagement pictures back, we were instantly even more eager for our wedding day, as we knew those photos would be equally wonderful! We got every picture we requested and so many more we didn’t even think to request. I am so happy that we chose Studio Sonya to document our big day! They gave us so many beautiful, artistic pictures that we will cherish forever! Gurbir and Sonya work flawlessly together as a team to get both traditional shots and creative/unique ones. They knew exactly when to pull us from the reception to get the perfect sunset pictures over the lake. We got so many compliments from guests about how wonderful they both were. I couldn’t have asked for a better duo to spend our wedding day with us documenting every treasured moment! A million thank you’s for making our day perfect!
ASHLEY GUPTON & CALEB ALLEN
ST. LEO THE GREAT CATHOLIC CHURCH, NORTH CAROLINA ON AUG 15, 2020
Ashley Gupton: We are so blessed that we had Gurbir and his sweet wife Sonya to capture our special day. They are so professional and do absolutely beautiful work! He accommodated our crazy schedule from the church, bus ride, and then to the venue during a pandemic and even with rain. Our guests even commented on how sweet they were. Thanks for all your hard work on our wedding day!
Denise Gupton (bride's Mom): Thank you Gurbir and to your lovely wife who worked so hard to capture all the special moments of Ashley and Caleb's wedding!! You were amazing and I cannot thank you enough!!
PREA PERSAUD & VARUN KHANNA
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA ON JUNE 14, 2020
Prea Persaud: We hired Studio Sonya last minute because our wedding plans were suddenly changed due to covid-19. We decided on a small, in-home wedding which we broadcasted on zoom. Gurbir and Sonya were so delightful to work with. They answered all of our questions and not only accommodated our zoom setup but tried to optimize the virtual experience as much as they could for our virtual guests. Throughout the day, they were professional, giving great directions for the pictures, and were creative in their approach. Both Gurbir and Sonya were so caring and kind that we felt they were part of the family or specially invited guests rather than strangers taking pictures. Amazingly, we received the first set of pictures within one day and are so pleased with the results. Highly recommended.
MAHASA BASHARDOOST & JOSE PAULA
NORTH CAROLINA ON MAY 21, 2019
Mahasa Bashardoost:We had the honor to go to a dear friend’s wedding last fall. After the wedding I received a very kind message from Gurbir @ Studio Sonya introducing himself for any future photography. José & I absolutely fell in love with his beautiful sunset pictures he had captured not only from the wedding but on his business page. We knew immediately Gurbir was going to be our photographer for our wedding in the future before we were even engaged. To some it may be only about capturing beautiful pics but to us it’s about a lifetime relationship. A kind soul who cares about our well being. He has also continued to check up on us regularly. This is a trait you do not see in today’s business practices. We are very appreciative for your thoughtful card we just received in the mail. A few have disappointed us during this time, but this is a proof there are still kind human beings out in this world. This speaks volumes and helps us restore our faith in humanity. José & I are honored to have Gurbir not only capture our engagement photos, wedding day photos, and many other beautiful memories we look forward to in the future. Thank you Gurbir from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness, generosity & thoughtfulness. Your wife Sonya is as amazing as you are. We are just over the moon to work with you! If you want the whole package, then Gurbir & Sonya should be your pick!

JESSICA FLANAGAN & DAVID ODASH
BELLA COLLINA MANSION, NORTH CAROLINA ON MAY 10, 2019
Jessica Flanagan: We had the best experience with Gurbir and Sonya. They capture amazing photos and wonderful to work with. We hired them to take all of our wedding photos and they took some great pictures including everyone that attended our wedding. Highly recommend them to anyone. We live in Maryland and Gurbir offered to drive to DC and take our engagement photos. They were super professional and easy to reach. I had an awful experience with my wedding dress alterations and super bummed with the quality of the dress outcome. One day after it gets realtered I plan to call Gurbir and Sonya and ask them to take new wedding photos of us showing what a quality dress looks like. Don’t look anywhere else just book Studio Sonya you’ll be very pleased!

We get so many compliments on our pictures....I would strongly recommend Studio Sonya for any special occasion.
