Wedding and Studio Headshot Photographer - Serving New Jersey, Philly, & NYC
You can either wait for the perfect lighting to happen or you can create it yourself.
As a professional wedding photographer there's something especially powerful about creating captivating imagery by taking control of the lighting. Knowledge of how light works and bringing portable studio lighting outside of the studio helps me create a crisp editorial look. I don't wait for the perfect conditions, I create them myself wherever and whenever needed.
Getting to know new people is one of my favorite things. Each couple have their own story and I try to communicate this in their photographs. A personal connection and understanding who you are shooting with can really help bring out character in the photos. I'm still in touch with many people years after their shoots and I strive to produce the most carefully crafted & artistic imagery possible.
Your engagement session will be uniquely tailored to your personality and story. Thinking outside the box to create exciting photos you can showcase to the world is my motivation. Don't worry at all if you are camera shy, we will hold your hand through the process, guide you, make sure you have plenty of fun, and enjoy your photo-shoot. We will show you fun poses and even give you some time to relax on your own as a couple to capture the candid moments from far off.
“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.” —Audrey Hepburn
Hiring a wedding photographer is not as easy as hiring other wedding professionals. You have to find a balanced combination of fun character, personal artistic style that you connect with, and serious professionalism. You will spend a great deal of time with your photographer the day of your wedding and its important to hire someone you are comfortable with, it really shows in the photos.
I like my clients to have a good idea about the way I work and the artistic style that I am capable of producing, I generally recommend an engagement mini-session to get to know each other and for you to see finished photos before booking. Choosing a wedding photographer is no easy task and I want you to be able to book your wedding day with absolute confidence.

My Personal Wedding Photographic Style
My style is based on story telling in a modern, editorial and clean look. A mix of contemporary, photojournalistic, and artistic wedding photography keeps things natural looking and vivid while capturing the emotions of the moment. My philosophy is to emphasize true natural beauty and keep my pictures true to life.
There will be a point in time where you will want to look back at your wedding photos and remember what it was really like. Truth is photography that captures the essence of the moment and real emotions will naturally never go out of style and this is what we strive for.
To make story telling imagery that is artistic and timeless while providing an enjoyable luxury photography experience is my goal. As any form of art, wedding photography requires patience to master and to develop different ways of seeing things. It is a continuous and expanding journey. Pushing the shutter button on a camera is one thing, but mastering control of lighting and evolving artistically is really what makes an astounding photographer.
When you're seriously shopping around for a professional wedding photographer doesn't it appear that almost everyone these days has a "Best Wedding Photographer Award" badge on their website like its a dime a dozen, what's that all about? See my work firsthand by booking a no strings attached couples' engagement shoot. When you see how stunning you look in the finished photos and the artistic quality produced that's what really counts.
Always strive to achieve higher levels of artistry, never be satisfied with your work, and never start to think that you already know everything because that's the day you will most definitely stop growing as an artist.
