Ayano was our photographer for a portrait shoot for an actor. We loved the results and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!Aika UramotoSeptember 4, 2019
Ayano is one of the best photographer in NYC. She took my website photos. It came out sooo nice!! She is professional. Highly recommended!!Kiichiro TakemotoAugust 31, 2019
Ayano was so professional throughout the preparation and the day of the wedding. She met up with me way before the wedding day to walk me through the details. Thanks to her beautiful work, we were able to capture so many great memories. Thank you for making our wedding day so special and memorable.Hirona NagaiOctober 25, 2018
Ayano's ability to capture the energy and essence of an event is remarkable. I worked with her on two events at the New York Philharmonic, one offsite and one at David Geffen Hall. She went above and beyond to take photos of everything — the audience, the musicians, the food and drink, and the smallest details that made these events special. She even climbed the scaffolding in the offsite venue to get the perfect shot of the aerial artists. She was great at asking questions, responding to our needs and turning around the first batch of photos overnight. Ayano is a joy to work with and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a skilled event photographer.Becca BrennerOctober 5, 2018
Ayano has a great eye for details and expressions. We did a shoot in Central Park and the pictures came out very ethereal and natural. She’s also incredibly easy to work with and gets to know the individual to capture their true self in photosNabia SSeptember 18, 2018
Ayano has an incredible ability to capture the essence of people and events. I recommend her all the time.Hasna MuhammadSeptember 15, 2018
She took my maternity and my family photos. Every single photos that she took were awesome. Also she is really nice person. I highly recommend her.Hisana NimmerSeptember 15, 2018
Ayano takes the most amazing photographs! I was so happy with the results of her stunning work.Frank MalafronteSeptember 15, 2018
I've been fortunate enough to work with this marvelous photographer and have used her pictures in brochures and on websites. She is terrific in everyday, personally wonderful to work with but she also has a killing eye.Diane Raines WardSeptember 14, 2018
Ayano was my wedding photographer for a destination wedding. I had been a fan of her travel and documentary work and was so excited she could photograph my wedding.
She did a beautiful job, was great during the planning process and provided us with a range of photos from the day that really captured the emotion and beauty of the day because of her skill. I would highly recommend Ayano to anyone looking for a photographer.Rachel SpeedSeptember 14, 2018
Ms. Hisa is an great photographer that does fantastic work. She has an amazing work ethic and I’ve been a fan of her work for a long time. I would recommend her to anyone in need of professionally done photography.Shannon ClarkSeptember 14, 2018
Ayano shot my wedding, and I absolutely loved the way her photos came out - so when I needed a last-minute headshot, Ayano was my first call. Not only was she able to make herself available with less than 48 hours notice, but also could seamlessly work with the constraints of our shoot location. As always, she was creative, personable and just a pleasure to work with - and once again, the photos she delivered hit it out of the park!Liz DeBoldJune 4, 2018
I highly recommend Ayano Hisa for any event or special project you have. Her photos are beautiful!!! Ayano is professional, creative and flexible - and a nice person (not always a given). Ayano will work with you and capture the moments you want (and many more). Importantly, Ayano knows how to photograph the many shades of our beautiful melting pot. Not everyone can do this. Ayano photographed a very sensitive family event for us. She worked with us and gave us beautiful memories from that day. We will always be grateful. With Ayano, you will get high quality at a reasonable price. Hard to find.Karen JonesMay 5, 2018
She has warm and nice. Her photo reflects her personality.Eisaku OyamaJune 4, 2017
I love her pictures. I feel as if I can hear my daughter's laughter from my daughter's pictures which she took.高田しづきApril 22, 2017
I have been using her for several years. She is very good.Chiko SugarMarch 22, 2017
Great experience! Ayano is both incredibly talented and easy to work with. We had engagement photos done and her work speaks for itself!!!Brendan LittMarch 20, 2017
Ayano did an amazing job at my wedding at the Greenpoint Loft in Brooklyn. She came highly recommended from a good friend and the high praise is well deserved. Her photos are breathtaking and she captured every moment perfectly! I still can't believe she got so many different perspectives when it was just her! My husband and I couldn't be happier - she has a great eye! She was also a pleasure to work with - thank you Ayano!!!!Brandy CrawfordNovember 11, 2015
Ayano is an extremely talented photographer and we were very fortunate to cross paths! She not only took beautiful and memorable pictures of our wedding day and the brunch the day after but also made helpful and creative suggestions to us, that we are so glad we followed. She managed to take numerous pictures without hardly being noticed, and worked so cooperatively with our videographer and hair and makeup stylist.
She is patient, she listens, and she works a professional and calm demeanor.
It was a pleasure working with her and my husband and I highly recommend her for any event!Anat Even OrJune 16, 2015
I've worked with Ayano in a professional capacity for years. When I needed a photographer for a personal project, she was the first person I called. Whether capturing photos for editorial use or for a 'life event,' Ayano demonstrates the same high level of professionalsim and creativity in her work. Most importantly, she always delivers gorgeous photos.Zooey JonesJune 9, 2014
Ayano took some engagement photos for us, both portrait and candid shots. She was very accommodating about scheduling, quick to respond to emails, and got the photos to us immediately after the shoot. We had a fun time having our pictures taken, and best of all, we received several very beautiful photographs. I am shy about posing for photos, but Ayano really put me at ease and the photos look very natural. Couldn't recommend her more!Ruth Francisco MoralesDecember 31, 2013
We needed a photographer at the last minute for a holiday photo. We have used different photographers for each of the past 5 years. Ayano was the best by far. Usually we only have one or two decent photos to chose from, but Ayano did such a great job that we had lots of great photos of our family. Equally important, she turned the photos around in just one day - amazing. We recommend her without reservation.David CarmelDecember 30, 2013
When you're planning a wedding, photography is one of the things that you may be tempted to skimp on because you have a cousin who's a photographer or whatever but I remember a good friend explaining that it's actually an heirloom. The photography is what's left after the wedding is over so it is worth spending on. However, that doesn't mean you have to break the bank either. We chose Ayano for two main reasons--her affordability and gorgeous portfolio.She gives a couple many options. It's also tempting to get a photographer that does not specialize in weddings but that would also be a mistake. Weddings are always stressful between family/venue drama and Ayano performed with grace under fire! Our church (Riverside) over-booked too many weddings on our wedding day so the time for our pictures was compromised. Ayano was able to get all of the photos anyway. She was also able to improvise with our reception venue to get beautiful duet shots with me and my husband.
Although took some traditional portrait shots that were posed, the photos I enjoy the most are the candid ones that are more photo-journalist. She also has a lot of experience photographing live performance (music, dance) and I think she has a gift in capturing the magic of special moments. She also referenced a videographer last-minute for us who was also excellent. The turnaround of the photos was extremely efficient. She sent us a DVD of the photos within a week or two of the wedding. And although we were no- so-efficient in selecting our photos for the albums, she accommodated us. Ayano also recommended our wedding for the local paper and we were featured in the NY Daily News! It was a lot of fun sharing our happy day with our beloved home-town newspaper and indulge our family and friends too. Perhaps the highest praise I can give about Ayano is more business and I have a feeling she will be the photographer we call for the next family affair from baby photographs to my parent's anniversary. She's really that good.Johanna AlmironDecember 9, 2013
Ayano came highly recommended by a good friend of mine and now I can highly recommend her myself. She's an excellent photographer, very professional, and also very nice. She got great candid shots, as well as posed portraits.Kimberly GruberSeptember 19, 2013
My fiancé and I are both from Taiwan but we met each other in the other side of the earth - New York. Because of that, we want to have our engagement photo done here for preserving our memories. One of my good friends recommends Ayano to me and I am really pleasured to have her to our engagement photo shooting!
Ayano is very talented and creative, I immediately know she is the photographer I am looking for when I saw her portfolio. She did a spectacular job for the shooting, the photos are absolutely beautiful and cute. She can catch any great moment of the interaction of my fiancé and I, no need to pre pose at all. We both look are very natural in the photos (which is the style I like a lot) and she always know when and what additional element to add for enhancing the story in the photos.
All my friends and families love the photos that Ayano took especially both of our parents, everyone can receive the happiness and love that we are sharing via Ayano’s photos. The most important is: I look very pretty in all the shots! That’s definitely my favorite part haha! In short, SHE IS AWESOME!rosanie wangSeptember 12, 2013
My Fiance' and I hired Ayano for our engagement shoot and we loved our pictures. Ayano is very professional and has an amazing talent for capturing great photos. I highly recommend her and in fact I already referred her to one of my bridesmaids!Victoria SageAugust 13, 2013
Ayano takes amazing shots and she is a very nice person. We wanted to work with someone who didn't necessarily focus solely on weddings and you can tell by looking at her online gallery that she is an artist first, and wedding photographer second. She's photographed lots of dance and other performances and is very adept at capturing movement and excitement in her photos.
We're not the most photogenic people and she did a great job with two people who don't like taking pictures. Our guests are clamoring for copies of her photos- they're that good.
Ayano has three basic packages but she can also tailor her services to your budget and needs. If you hire her, you will be rushing out to buy frames.Katie NagrotskyAugust 9, 2013
Ayano is an extremely talented photographer with a great eye! If you want to make sure you have amazing photos of your special day, she is the one to hire. Ayano did both our engagement and wedding photos, and both came out amazing (every one of our photos looks like it could be in a magazine!). She is very experienced with weddings and really gets to know each couple's style and personalities in order to capture them at their best. She is also very patient and understanding to work with, and a lot more low key than photogs I've seen at other weddings. Even my husband, who can be shy/grumpy about taking photos, loosened up with Ayano behind the lens. We receive so many compliments about our wedding pictures, and it's truly amazing to look back on photos that captured our memories perfectly. Also, she was extremely professional and photos were sent to us very quickly.Jen KwokMay 8, 2013
