Punta Cana Photographers team


Nikolay Chernichenko - Filmaker & Destination photographer - Owner of NCH Studio

Hi, I am Niko, and I genuinely appreciate you investing your time into seeing what NCH Studio team is all about.

Sometimes our paths lead us on adventures we never anticipated. After falling in love with the incredible Dominican Republic, and the art of photography, I began my journey into becoming a creative professional.

With a camera in hand, the entrepreneurial-journey began, and new clients helped me to push myself creatively in ways I never thought possible. With light, emotion, and natural beauty as my medium, I discovered that I could bring meaningful art to dozens of happy couples and families.

About 10 years and over 300,000 photos later, I’m proud to call myself one of the top wedding photographers in the Dominican Republic.

My partner and I created NCH Studio, so together with our talented team, we could provide quality wedding photography and videography to a broader range of clients.

NCH STUDIO has been built around a strong team that focuses on creativity, quality, and service to our clients. We manage the day to day studio operations, including meetings with clients, shot lists, timelines, editing, and overall back end work to make the best experience & products for our clients!

Storytelling photographs & compelling videography are our trademarks. So if you are in the search of the perfect team for your Punta Cana / Dominican Republic destination wedding we invite you to check out our work. But first, allow me to introduce you to our wonderful team!
