About Niko

Meet your Photo & video team
in the dominican republic

Hi, I'm Niko 
I appreciate your time and interest in learning more
 about the work and team behind NCH Studio.

Born and raised in Moscow Russia, I migrated with my family to the Dominican Republic at 16 years old. Ten  years later, proudly nationalized Dominican, graduated from Film School, and completely
in love with the endless Dominican Republic,
 (its people, its food, its music, its colors, its values)
 and the art of photography, I started my entrepreneurial journey as a creative artist.

 Together with a talented team of friends, I founded NCH STUDIO, through which we provide wedding photography and videography, and quality portrait photography to a wide variety of clients. We take great pride in being recognized among the best wedding photographers in the Dominican Republic.

Please allow me to introduce you to our talented team!

A very wild spirit on the sweetest baby looking face.

Highly talented and skilled. 
An avid collector of old cameras.

Our booking process starts with a face to face consultation (may be in-person - or virtual) to allow us to learn more about you (and viceversa), answer all your questions, and make sure nothing on your wedding vision is overlooked in the planning process.

If you need it, we will provide you all our knowledge about weddings on the island, from venues, timelines, vendor referrals, and feedback, etc. Consider us your eyes in the Dominican Republic.
