I feel uncomfortable having my picture taken. Is that ironic? Or is it fitting that I chose a career that puts me permanently behind the camera instead of in front of it?
Maybe that’s why I love making my clients laugh and helping them enjoy the moment, so that they aren’t thinking about their picture being taken.
I am unapologetically sentimental. I still get choked up during weddings (and I’ve photographed nearly 500 of them).
I take my job very seriously, but I am not a serious person.
I frequently dance poorly but with great enthusiasm.
My wife tells me I have the most romantic job in the world. I agree with her. She is pretty amazing. She makes me laugh, and she challenges me to ‘be awesome’.
I enjoy solving problems. I have sewn rips in dresses, been there with a Tide Stain Stick or a safety pin, and casually ushered couples away from the crowd when I knew they needed a moment alone because for me it is not just about taking pictures.
I love telling stories. Let’s tell your story together.
Natural. I want to capture authentic moments of you and your guests.
Before the wedding day, I will work with you on your timeline, making sure we streamline the photo process so that you can spend most of your day enjoying yourself with your guests. During portraits, I will guide you through the process and talk to you so that you look your natural best and feel comfortable. The rest of the day – I let the events unfold, without interfering, and capture it as it happens.
My career as a photographer started nearly two decades ago, photographing actors and musicians. I began photographing weddings over sixteen years ago, and, in that time, I have photographed about 450 weddings. There’s very little I have not seen at this point…
My work has been published all over the world in such magazines as New York Magazine, The Knot Magazine, Bridal Guide Magazine, Utterly Engaged, Platinum Weddings Magazine: New York, Sophisticated Weddings: New York, Professional Photographers of America, and Rangefinder. I am also featured online by leading industry blogs including Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, Snippet & Ink, Brooklyn Bride, Rock ‘n Roll Bride, Glamour, The Knotty Bride, Merci New York, OneWed, Ever Ours, DIY Bride, and many more.
Wedding Industry Experts Awards voted me “Best Wedding Photographer in New York City” and one of the “Top Ten Wedding Photographers in the United States” in 2013.
Also, I have received both The Knot’s ‘Best of Weddings’ Award (2012-2017) and WeddingWire’s Couples Choice Award (2012-2017) six years in a row.
Finally, I am an active member of the Wedding Photojournalists Association (WPJA), and the Artistic Guild of the WPJA.
