Marissa Joy Daly
Marissa adores spending time with her husband, her son, and their rescue Shepherd, Zoe. She is very passionate about animal welfare, and spends a dedicated amount of time photographing shelter animals and helping place them in forever homes.
We also know that your wedding photographer can help you have an amazing experience, simply because he is one of the few people who will spend the entire wedding day next to you. That is why i'm focused on what is really important for you, I know that this is a lifetime event, so we focus on helping and guiding you throughout this entire journey and making sure that your wedding experience is exactly what you imagined when you were a little girl.
Thank you for considering me as your trusted advisors in having an amazing photography experience for your wedding day.
Eventually I went to school and earned a BFA in photography and began to teach photography at the local university and community college. In 2006 I decided to formally start a photography business. In 2008 my wife Tara began photographing with me and it's been an amazing journey together as a husband-wife team. We love what we do and feel blessed to be able to tell the stories of people's lives with our cameras.
I have dedicated the past 17 years photographing weddings, it's been quite a fun ride! Photography aside, I'm a huge Star Wars fan and a huge Potterhead. I'm a proud Gryffindor! I love to go to the movie and go to music festivals and concerts, it's kind of an addiction but it makes me feel happy and alive :)
I spoke also once at a TedX talk in Mexico and it was an experience that I'm very proud of, I really hope I can speak at a TedX again.
If you read everything and we resonate in more than just photography that's awesome! Send me a message and let's work together!
I'm based in Los Angeles but UK born, so I spend a lot of time in Europe, and as a Destination Wedding Photographer I am open to photographing weddings anywhere in the world. I'd love to hear from you if my work makes you smile.
Traveling is also a large part of me. I've been to over 28 countries in the past 3 years for both pleasure and for weddings (I'm still not done traveling yet!).
While I've won a Pulitzer Prize for photography so far I've not tried to win any Knot or Wedding Wire awards. Please don't hold this against me. My photography style is more classic and timeless over trendy and I'm not about following the trends or photoshop actions that will look dated in a few years. I love growing and learning from others and never stop learning.
Hailing from scenic New Jersey, Nick and I specialize in dynamic, colorful and fun wedding photography all over the Tri-State Area.
WHO WE ARE...
Authentic? Artistic? Creative? Timeless?
These are among the most overused marketing words in the wedding-photography industry.
They aren't meant to capture your life. They are meant to capture sales.
How do we describe our work? The same way you would describe your relationship: wild, unpredictable, playful, and - above all else - fun!
Your biggest day shouldn't follow a tired script. Let us share in your vision and help you tell your story!

Jesse La Plante
Skiing is my favorite pastime. We have two seasons here at J. La Plante Photo: wedding season and ski season. If pressed, I could probably eat around 47 tacos. I love to travel. I've been to all 50 United States and 18 foreign countries. So far...
A little about us: Kelly and I have owned our own business since 1996, and we are 100% customer service oriented. We strive to deliver not only our own visions of photography but our clients' visions as well.
A little about you: You should expect to have a lot of fun with us around. We strive to make your day as calm and as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to working for you!
Doing this work with my best friend is amazing. We complement each other, we compete, we divide and conquer, we share the experience. I sneak a kiss once in a while. Couldn't imagine it any other way.
Me? I am a perfectionist who is utterly imprefect - I love candy, movies, and staying up late. I feel the most alive when I am traveling, dancing, or making photographs.
I love uniqueness in life & people. I am drawn to beauty, color & emotion- I notice the little things. When photographing a wedding, I strive to capture emotion, events, and all the details come together to make it beautiful and extraordinary. I capture you at your best and all the personality and life of your friends and family for memories that will last a lifetime!
A little about us: Ben and I have been married for 21 years. Why do we photograph weddings? Because we believe in love. Period.
Since she started JAGstudios 10 years ago, her work has been featured in numerous bridal publications including the first same-sex wedding in Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine and the cover story in the 2011 issue of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style New England Magazine. She's also been honored with multiple awards in Fearless, Wedcomp and PDN Top Knot's Contest.
Jacklyn's strong belief in conscious living has motivated her to use eco-friendly principles throughout her business. This passion for green photography has made her a valuable resource in the photographic community as studios and businesses become more environmentally aware.
We work to establish a comfort level that will allow our couples to share their personalities and quirks, so their images show the full range of their distinctive and extraordinary connection. We are also sensitive to poses that will best complement or enhance the physical attributes of our couples. We are always searching for those moments between moments, and different angles to help us create an artistic and unexpected perspective.
Weddings are celebrations that encompass love in all its forms, including the joining of new families and friends. This is why we also work with our couples to make sure we capture special contemporary portraits, large and small.
Creative documentary Wedding Photographer based in Chicago, but definitely available for travel.
My approach on a wedding day is photojournalistic and inventive. I want to capture you as naturally as possible and as uniquely as possible. I'm constantly looking for new angles and innovating new techniques so that I'm able to create something for you that is artful and unique. It's important for me to get to know you because I want to portray your story in a manner that is representative of you, rather than approaching everyone with a cookie-cutter template. I can't wait to meet you and partner with you in telling your story!
Always loved telling a story through an image. And I love taking pictures of people. In a wedding, everything that I've learned over the years comes together like a puzzle: photojournalism, fine art photography, editorial and portrait photography, all into one. It never ceases to amaze me- with weddings, how everything is old and everything is new again. Everything you think you know you don't as every single couple, every single family and culture bring something new and exciting to the table. The only thing predictable is the unexpected.
I travel a lot shooting weddings and I love it, whether is Continental US, Mexico and Europe.
My goal is always to give you unique images that push the art of photography, while not forgetting the tears, laughs, and quivering lips that make your special day uniquely you.
That being said, I love to work with my couples to create epic, artistic portraits. I always try to push the envelope and challenge situations to make something that might not be so apparent on the surface. It all begins with great light, moments and composition.
When photographing throughout the day, I look for real, expressive moments. They are often the most beautiful and evocative photographs between people. I love documenting life as it happens. While content is one part of the narrative, context gives even more meaning to an already powerful image. My background in architecture enables me to find fresh and creative ways to photograph people in a myriad of environments.
Having interned with a fashion photographer in college, then working with Callaway Gable for eight years, Lauren is inspired by dramatic light and how it can help shape a mood or emotion. She lives for the moments and enjoys taking the time to get to know her clients and their families.
One of our favorite things about being wedding photographers is discovering how each couple is unique, and that each love is different. It is such an amazing opportunity to share the coming together of a couple as they begin their lives together as one.
Our clients come to us looking for a different type of photography... They love our unique fusion of landscape and portrait photography. We often get weird looks when we climb trees or wade out into a stream with expensive camera gear, but it's all a part of creating something different. It's about giving our clients a piece of wall art instead just a bunch of tight 8x10 portraits.
Yes, you'll get a lot of pretty images from your wedding day, but I'll also give you photographs that that tug at your mother f%#king* heart strings years from now.
*I will not swear in church, in front of your parents (unless specifically asked to do so), or around children. I will swear excitedly in front of you.
My father, a photographer by profession, made sure that while growing up, I was comfortable on both sides of the camera. In doing so, he awakened a gift within that enables me to capture a unique perspective of a subject in a photograph. It is for this reason that I developed a love of photography, art and architecture and I decided to follow in my father's footsteps to become a professional photographer.
My passion for art drives me to defy the boring and create memorable, timeless and interesting images for those that I photograph. My true love of artistic expressions in photography comes from capturing the beautiful emotion and energy within human relationships: love, joy, tenderness, and passion.
I have been honored by many with the privilege of telling their stories through the lens of my cameras. I hope to be able to tell your story as well!
All my best,
If that sounds like something you'd like to talk a bit more about, shoot me an email or give me a call. I would love to learn more about your big day, particularly if we can chat over a cup of coffee or glass of wine!
Focusing on the unique memories throughout your wedding day is what gets me excited. Long after the guests leave and the photos have been shared I still can't shut up about what made your day remarkable. Trust me just ask my friends and family.
In, October of 2018 we had our first child! Rouxby Jo came out with bright blue eyes! Since having a Rouxby, it really has changed my perspective on life and has made me a better wedding photographer!
An ideal night includes us taking the Jeep top off and heading out to dinner and an adventure! A few of our favorite dinner spots are Cooper's Hawk, Condados Tacos, and M at Miranova.
Let's hang out!
Ryan spent his childhood in Shanghai (he's fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and a little Japanese as well) before becoming a San Franciscan in his early teens. His business education never fulfilled him like photography, so when he wanted to transition to a more creative field, we immediately brought him on board. Since that point, Ryan has photographed weddings from San Francisco to New York to Mexico, and always brings a smile to every person he sees.
Charming, talented, and hardworking, he's exactly what any bride could hope for. He lives in Daly City with his wife Bonnie.
Our goal: deliver epic photographs that elicit true emotion. Your photographs should not only showcase how amazing the day looked but remind you of how it actually felt.
Our method is to pop that personal bubble of yours so we can focus on documenting the authentic moments throughout the day, and then use our skillset to make those moments look and feel amazing. Our inspiration stems from our love of adventure, our 3 fur babies, and most importantly each other.
Their photojournalistic style is a blend of creative composition and lighting with an authentic feeling that reflects the heart of the human spirit. Jos and Tree invite people to fall in love all over again capturing poetic moments and timeless memories.

I support your love no matter your orientation, age, shape, race or abilities, and I don't photoshop people to be younger/skinnier/anything.
I love documenting the memorable moments on your wedding day with a creative and unique vision. I go above the standard wedding photos to really capture the unique voice of your special day. Your wedding images will be full of life so the memory of how you felt will coming flooding back.
Moira La Plante
I love a good challenge and use that motivation to find interesting places and activities for Alt Sessions. If we come up with a photo idea for a wedding, I will do whatever it takes to figure out how to make it happen. Someone telling me, "It can't be done," fuels my drive.
My husband, Jesse, and I met on spring break in the Bahamas. He offered to buy me a drink. It was an all-inclusive resort. He's since taught me everything I know about photography.
If I see a dog, I consider it a good day.

Bonus for me... I also love wedding cake.
Being married with kids gives you this fun outlook on life - they remind you to enjoy the simple things, to see beauty and wonder, and to not take life too seriously. Having that outlook, Eugene incorporates it into his photography work. Eugene tries to capture images that are creative and fun and full of life. Just like his family.
Whether I'm photographing an intimate elopement or a 800-guest lavish affair, my goal is to create images of those once in a lifetime moments that can stand alone as works of art. Through my lens, I tell extraordinary stories of extraordinary people. Having worked with an elite array of clients, I like to think that my services are suitable for the most discriminating brides. Though based in Washington, D.C., I am available to travel worldwide to document your extraordinary story.

Fast forward a few years, through lots of learning and continuous growth, I'm ready to move others the way I was moved in 2013.
Jason Q Tran
As a husband and wife team, we are constantly working on fusing the art and story behind each wedding. We are willing to go wherever it takes to get the image. Living in Colorado has provided us with some great backdrops and unique settings for weddings. We are known to go 'off the path' to get the shot, even if that means tromping through a stream, climbing a tree, or getting our cloths a little dirty.
My love of photography was sparked when my brother was getting married. It wasn't until his wedding that I decided to purchase my first "real camera" and I haven't turned back since.
I have had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember. Since a child, I was delighted in how a moment can be captured through the lens of a camera, and how time stands still within the frame of a photograph. I approach every project with professionalism and a will to deliver quality and value to my clients. I believe that exceptional photographs can only be taken in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, and so I make every effort to make sessions as enjoyable as possible and to put clients at ease.
When I first used a camera, several years ago, I would never have imagined I could become a wedding photographer. Bang and I opened our first studio in Elk Grove, near Sacramento, experimenting in different styles and adapting to the needs of the local clientele. Little by little, we realized what we were looking for in our photos was emotion, which still life or classical studio photography could not offer. Real people, their expressions, their emotions, this is what we wanted to capture. Choosing wedding photography was a natural consequence, as it offers the unique opportunity to capture human emotions in all their shades.
I believe it is in the nature of humankind to be attracted, and sometimes, upset, by what is different from us, as in a way it represents our opposite, our contrasting personality. I never found it easy to show my emotions and my sensitivity, to express my real self and let go completely, displaying my vulnerability. I guess this is why what attracts me most in weddings: the ability to capture the emotions expressed without filters, with no fear of showing what you really are and what you are feeling. A smile, a hearty laugh, tears you'd like to hide, an emotional hug, these intimate moments fascinate and seduce me, and this is what I base my photography on. Static poses created with affected emotions are not my cup of tea; I want true spontaneity.
Your wedding day isn't my personal photoshoot. I want the two of you to truly enjoy your engagement and wedding and live in those moments.

One day my wife and I shot a wedding for a friend and that changed everything. We fell in love with wedding photography. It's one of the happiest days of a couple's life, and we get to be a small part of it. Since that day we started specializing in wedding photography. Always on the lookout for moments between family and friends, knowing that we are capturing memories that will be cherished for generations.
My photography has been featured in Offbeat Bride, the Colorado Weddings Magazine, Luxe Mountain Weddings, Premier Weddings of Denver Magazine, and COUTUREcolorado. I have also been voted to the Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame and rated #1 photographer in Colorado by Top Rated Local.
Tim D. Yun
I think that's my biggest priority when taking a picture, to transmit what goes beyond. I focus on creating images through an artistic and photo-journalist style, where the main concept is the depth of love in the simplicity of moments and details, keeping the spontaneity of the day.
I have no interest in having the absolute control of the situation, but I have total control of how I show it through my photographs, and that freedom is something that has helped me to see outside the box, and not to stagnate.
I give a big importance to postproduction, I take care of the details and I take my time to give that extra magic to each image, without changing its essence. I love the images with color, but ultimately I am a huge fan of blacks and whites; I believe that in many cases, they can reach deeper and powerfully to the heart of the public, and when you get there, you made the finish line first.
Cicely and Jason are the husband and wife team that make up Procopio Photography. They photograph all of their weddings together. Having shot weddings with each other for eight years has contributed to their solid and cohesive perspective.
I am an emotionally driven photographer who believes that relationships and trust are key to documenting your wedding day. I also brag about my one break-dancing move that I will show you regardless or not if you want to see.
Having extensive experience living internationally, Lukas has a special ability to pick out the unique beauty of varying cultural traditions—something he is able to do whether the wedding is in Miami, New York, Paris or a more exotic destination.
Not only do I specialize in weddings, but more importantly I specialize in making you comfortable every step of the way. My goal is to build trust and a high level of comfort with all of my clients.
How can I? It is merely my interpretation of the moment that once stilled is no longer it, as experienced. But what I can do is hopefully
evoke the emotions felt at the time, Recapturing the feeling.
I find it odd that I'm so intrigued by photography and striving to capture the fleeting that is most perfect as is. This is my struggle. I want to move you and remind you of that which can never be recaptured.
I am deeply drawn to an art that is only to be absorbed and never seen again. Is that what I'm trying to do? Show you the impossible? I love fun, color, story, darkness, all things human. I want to be truthful and give you a morsel of me, as well as let you know, you are in good hands.
Now some quick tidbits on me as a person. I love traveling, hiking, biking, and any other kind of adventure you can throw my way, I'm a foodie and pretty good around the grill, I'm a huge fan of the arts, from any genre of music, books, movies, and traditional art, a dog lover, and most of all I'm a romantic. All this may sound a little personal, but I am letting you see who I am because this is how I view the world and this shows through my photos.
I am an Architect by profession and a Photographer by passion. I can't imagine being anything else. Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated by photography, studying photographs, watching my mother use her camera and trying to use it myself. I have fond memories of travels with my family, taking pictures or imagining pictures.
I love colors and taste. I love my family and friends, specially the children and their spontaneity. I love the feeling and the happiness that photography can bring. Capturing spontaneous moments is a great feeling. I am married and through my husband I found the support to start my business. I love to dance, to party, great food but I don't like to cook, I love the sun and the beach, the sound of laughter, listening to music, I am bad speaker but a pretty good listener and I can keep a secret for a lifetime, I rather be a witness than a protagonist.
I love to be on the hearts of the people that I love. Being a photographer is a beautiful way of being in a small part of every ones heart.
Eastlyn Bright Tolle
With that said, I want to share in couple's joy by documenting their story in a way that, I believe, will be dynamic, unconventional and leave a lasting legacy for their future family.
My style is unconventional because I'm not the parent's photographer. I'm not the audience's photographer. I'm not here to please anyone expect the couple.
My heartfelt desire is to photograph people and moments as they are. I may give direction as to where to stand, but I'm not going to plan poses based on other photographer's work. I want to capture people in an honest state because authenticity is beautiful. When you look at a photograph you should be able to not only see it, but feel its emotions.
I got into serious photography as early as in 1998. Since then I have been working as a photographer for several press agencies and a major national newspaper in Warsaw, Poland, during which time I gained a lot of experience tackling challenges of wedding photography. After several years of freelancing I am currently mostly committed to wedding and food photography. I am a visual storyteller who not only makes sure that the newlyweds have the memorable images that they always dreamed of but also that the bride and groom feel comfortable and unworried throughout the whole wedding experience.
My goal is to tell the story of your day, from the morning preparations through the dance party. That means I'll have my eyes open for your details, because they're an important part of the story. And we'll get all the "formal groups," because I think everyone should have timeless family portraits. But as a photojournalist, my real passion is for moments. I love documenting all the emotions of the day - the joy, the laughter and even the tears.
Regardless of what kind of celebration you're planning, I love working with couples that trust me and my approach. The most successful weddings I've photographed are memorable, not because of the venue or the details, but because I connected with my clients, and they trusted my vision.
I am a father, painter, professor, designer, dancer, and pancake pro. All these things make me a better photographer, which means your photographs will be different from others. I believe in beauty, but also believe in meaning.
Just be yourself and I'll do the rest.
Based in Estes Park, Colorado, he travels frequently to photograph couples in beautiful places such as Iceland, France, Italy, Mexico, and Hawaii.
"My absolute favorite part of photography is getting couples outside, into the wilderness or into a vast landscape and letting their emotions take over."
What separates me from other photographers is my outlook on your wedding day, it's not just about the details and the dress, it's about the feelings, emotions and uniqueness of your wedding vs everyone else's.
This is what we offer our couples - couples who have great taste and style. Couples who love life and are not afraid to let their emotions show. Couples who value photography not as a commodity, but for the memories and artwork that we capture. Lastly, couples who know their story is what matters above all else.
We have an intimate and personal understanding of the wedding process and we deeply value marriage - both yours and ours. So, let's celebrate it together!
As an observer looking in, Justin works to capture the details, thoughtfulness, and true emotion that your love entails, using a relaxed and stressless approach to capturing and telling the modern day romance.
I personally believe "monotony" is a curse word, I am beyond passionate about traveling (I travel for weddings!) and find that I connect with people the best when the conversation is focused on crazy Tuk-Tuk drivers, eating bugs in Southeast Asia, or how men in Italy love to catcall blondes.
So I've given the cliche answers of why I'm *so* unique amongst the thousands of photographer options for you ::insert eye roll:: but really, just email me if you want to know more. I've been called Mama Bear, gladiator and fiercely loyal when described my current and past clients. If you want someone who will fight tooth and nail for your happiness AND create kick ass pictures, I'm your girl.
At 16, I went to school for photography and graduated with knowledge and ambition. Now I find myself in Madison, WI. I continue my father's legend in a new land. I have kept his excellence and attention to you, the client, while going forward with my own artistic sense of photojournalism.
Although photography is an art that I love and I'm pretty self-taught, I think that one must always have a constant capacitation to improve the result, for that's I still study and travel to catch new experiences, trends and new point of view.
I love the music a lot, when I was in the school I studied Piano and in my youth time I belonged a pair rocks bands, now I've stopped play the piano but I turn-on my keyboard to teach music basic concepts to my little boy. I love the SALSA however when I'm editing photos or I go to some session, I like to listen romantic music because it helps me to inspire me. Another art what captivates me and inspire me is the CINE, I love to analyze the movies in all its aspects, especially the photography direction, a lot images than I watch in the movies it servers me of supports for more inspiration
His experience as a radiographer combined with extensive road trips across the continent has enabled him to capture the most intimate images, whether within an xray or an emotionally charged photograph.

Joseph Di Pietro
Upon his return, he lived in Washington, DC for a few years where he was the primary photographer for one of the largest universities in the heart of the city.

Ruthie's background in fine arts and current experience with press photography lends her to create more in-depth and dynamic photographs in almost any situation. She also imparts this knowledge in her independent work as a wedding, portrait, event and news photographer; creating natural images that will tell vivid stories for years to come.
I live by a quote from photojournalist Robert Capa, the lone surviving photographer from the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. He said, "If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough." I want to get as intimately close to your story as possible, because I believe that's where great moments are captured and even greater stories are discovered.
Curious yet? Reach out and lets get coffee. Share your story. Let's capture, discover, and push the boundaries of creativity with me and my team. The only limit is your imagination.
I get emotional watching the way partners look and interact with one another. I love to create emotional and meaningful photography sessions and document the important moments throughout weddings and elopements.
I always work with a team of experienced second shooters and assistants. Our style can be characterized as upbeat and artistic; we love being creative and having fun while making sure we don't miss a single moment of your special day.
Tatiana is based in San Francisco and available for travel worldwide. She earned her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2010, and has been working as a wedding, portrait and fine-art photographer since then. Her work was featured in the British Journal of Photography, Harper's, Wired, Juxtapoz, Modern Luxury, and exhibited internationally.
My style is my own; I believe very strongly that my photos themselves can express that much better than any words of mine. We would most likely get along and hi five once or twice.
I approach weddings with sensitivity and humor, and I let events unfold organically and with honesty. I try to tell stories and document connections between people -- between bridesmaids as they get ready; between fathers and mothers as they watch ceremonies and recall their own, many years before; between a couple as they marvel at all the people who traveled from all corners of the world; or between best friends during the dance floor shenanigans.
When I'm not shooting weddings, I'm probably cycling, trail running or rock climbing -- or working on my newfound passion: perfecting my home-baked sourdough boule.
Just know from the get-go that anything is okay, and there is no need to hold back. I will never judge their style of celebrating. I don't care what a wedding "should be"; I will work with you organically to photograph how their wedding actually is.
Our photography style is moment driven, creative, timeless and dramatic. Besides providing unforgettable photos, we aim to give you a great experience. We're very silly, fun and energetic people. If you book with us, you're going to laugh, have fun and be relaxed - allowing us to capture not just you... but, the real you.
We feel so blessed to be serving the most joyful and in-love couples in all of Southern California including; Los Angeles, Orange County, Inland Empire and San Diego areas. We've also traveled Coast to Coast to shoot destination weddings; so whether your wedding is in a backyard or a tropical beach, we would love to be a part of your day.
Thank you and God Bless.
Raw emotion is what drives my photography. As a visual storyteller my goal is to capture the raw, spontaneous moments that make up a wedding day and to show your unique love story through photos. My goal is not just to make incredible photographs, but to make images that truly capture the relationship between two people in love. I love the whole flow of the wedding day, from the excitement of a bride getting her hair and makeup done with her closest friends and family, the moment that she puts on the dress and her dad sees her for the first time, the moment her nervous groom sees her walking down the aisle. That is my favorite moment of the day. I feel honored to document a couple's love story on the most important and intimate day of their lives.
I offer packages with photography and some video. Using photos from the day, music, audio and video footage, I create a wedding trailer that tells the story of the day.
Why do I include video? Photography freezes a moment in time that you want to remember for the rest of your life. Video brings you right back to that moment and allows you to relive those moments. Bringing in all the elements of photography, video, audio and music together, I create a complete emotional story.

I've been a photographer for 15 years. A few years ago, I found my soul mate and we started working together. Sharing a passion for photography and video production, we joined forces to create Clean Slate Digital Media. We operate our wedding photography component under "Wedding Photography by Heather & Rob". We've never looked back and working together is amazing. We love working with couples who place a lot of importance on their wedding photographs. They understand the art of the craft and appreciate the work we do in a way that makes doing it that much more rewarding.
We truly love what we do, and think it shows in everything we do. We hope you agree.

During his coverage, he has been blessed by the Pope, stared down by Muhammad Ali, manically gained at by Stephen Colbert, and had his photos of Smokey Robinson featured the in Kennedy Center lifetime tribute ceremony.

He is ranked as one of the Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World by the two top industry magazines, American Photo and Rangefinder.
Tatiana has worked in essentially every aspect of the photography field, from editorial portraiture to corporate product campaigns, but found her love in weddings more than a decade ago. She has an extremely long list of overjoyed clients, with a lifetime perfect 5.0 customer service score, and a tradition of amazing photojournalism and innovative, playful portraits.
Together, Ryan and Tatiana are the only independent photographers to document the U.S. presidential candidates the last time they meet before the election, and have photographed weddings around the world, including Chile, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Ireland, the Bahamas, and many more, as well as essentially every street corner in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
I love shooting weddings because that is how I literally got our start. I'm Pete Martin, a traveling wedding photographer. I often work on weddings with my German-born wife Anji, and together we make sure that we get every loving glance, every secret smile and every tender caress that you share on your wedding day.
Home right now is the Washington, DC metro area, but I have lived in the Nordic countries, South America and Asia in the past decade. So obviously I don't mind traveling to whatever corner of the globe you choose for your wedding!
My name is Dan, it is my pleasure for you to call me your photographer and to have me be a part of your special day.
Your wedding photography experience can be fun, comfortable, and creative. By enjoying the people we're with and the places we get to visit, we can create something worth remembering. Focusing on your experience allows us to capture your memories in a way that is true to you. Your love is an adventure, your wedding can be too.
"So I'm scrubbing dishes in the back at Panera Bread when I look up through the small circular window on the door and what do I see? To put it bluntly, the most defined feminine calves my little eyes have ever gazed upon. It was at that moment that I made the executive decision that the dishes were clean enough and it was time to check on our new guests in the dining room."
I laugh at myself more often than not. It helps boost my confidence.
I love the show Breaking Bad. Who doesn't?
I'm pretty active. You kind of have to be in order to be a great photographer. I am usually doing something that requires balance (slack-lining, longboarding, rock climbing, etc.).
I don't care too much for beer - unless it's Founders Double Chocolate Oatmeal Breakfast Stout, then I'm all about it. Blue Moon works, too.
My wife and I are learning to love each other. I think we are learning well. We forgive well, I think-if Les disagrees, I bet she forgives me for saying it.
I refuse to let Les sleep alone. That's not to say we won't go to bed pissed at each other every once in a while. But when those nights come, and Les heads to the couch, I sleep on the living room floor beside her.
Believe the best in people. It makes a difference.
David Butler II
Wedding and Event photographer, based New York with more than 4 year of experience. It is my privilege to capture the beautiful moments of your day and to reflect who you are as a couple. Cheers!
My success is defined by capturing the true spirit and unparalleled personalities of the subjects that I photograph. My style has been described as highly creative and enjoyable while maintaining an engaging, yet relaxed environment. I strive to create a calm setting for my subjects as designing an unforgettable experience is not only vital to me personally, but it is also essential in generating the most beautiful images.
Even the most breathtaking of moments are brief, but the stories that surround them are timeless. Through the definitive moments in our lives, we all have a unique story to contribute to the world. I do not just capture moments, I embrace any and every opportunity to tell a story photographically.
Rachel E Ligon
My creativity and entrepreneurial spirit blossomed while pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Photography from Northern Kentucky University. Traveling and studying abroad let me photograph people and their environments in a very natural way. These opportunities, and my years of experience since then, have honed my unique style.
To this day, my work highlights people at their most authentic. Getting to know a couple before the big day is vital to my process as a premier wedding photographer. Observing their dynamic through phone calls and meetings prepares me to take photos that reveal personalities and emotions naturally. I have an eye for capturing those extraordinary moments - intimate, surprising, and joyous - that make each wedding so unforgettable.
Rachel E. Ligon Photography attracts clients seeking more than just generic wedding photos. I like to blend classic approaches with an artistic vision and playful, personalized twists, and colorful Key West is the perfect backdrop. This island is a magical place to begin a marriage, and my goal is to provide equally vibrant, true-to-life, high quality photos to treasure for a lifetime.
When Michael was in high school, his grandfather gave him his first camera, a Kodak Ektra 100 and he began shooting film. It was during this time that the seed was planted for Michael's unique eye for composition. A lifelong soccer player, Michael played goalkeeper in high school and college. As a goalkeeper, you have to anticipate movements, much the same way you have to anticipate special moments happening at a wedding. His documentarian style captures these fleeting moments creating images that are authentic and timeless.
Each year, Michael shoots around 50 full-day weddings, including many destination weddings. An avid outdoorsman, Michael enjoys travelling to new places and exploring the beauty of the natural world. He loves all activities on the water including fishing, boating and surfing. Michael is inspired by nature, light, abstract design and the love he witnesses between his couples.
I'm determined to document the way a wedding feels, not just the way it looks; from ear-splitting grins to eyes glistening with tears, from a ring bearer's tantrum to a crazy-sweaty-screaming dance floor. I believe there's more to a wedding than pretty details and picture-perfect scenes. When documenting a day I seek raw emotions, human connections, and unrepeatable moments, and the resulting images will transport you back to the one day that will fly by faster than you think is possible.
We work seasonally from home studios in Burlington, Vermont (late May-October; no fees within the state of Vermont) and Jupiter, Florida (November-early May; no fees between Fort Lauderdale and Vero Beach). Lots more travel info on our website.
Our motto: love. adventurously.
We believe that your wedding photography experience can be fun, comfortable, and creative. By enjoying the people we're with and the places we get to visit, we can create something worth remembering. Focusing on your experience allows us to capture your memories in a way that is true to you.
This philosophy results in photography that is as unique as the wedding day and the people in it. It isn't about a style, but about capturing the most beautiful, emotionally relevant record of the events and feelings of the day.
It's just one less thing to worry about knowing that you have a friend there to capture all of the candid, emotional, hysterical and real moments that will happen throughout your day. Whatever your wedding day looks like, we'd love to be there and provide you with photos you'll be proud of, and can pass on to future generations.
I believe that when you understand how to truly see, beauty is everywhere. I am passionate about capturing and memorializing the beauty of humanity and love. At the end of the day, my craft, my art, is produced by combining my technical skill set and my artistic imagination to capture the true essence of life's most important moments. This is what I do. This is what I love.
Who is the girl behind the lens? I have always identified with the words in Mary Anne Radmacher's powerful poem "Living Eulogy" ... "She danced. She sang. She took. She gave. She served. She loved. She created. She dissented. She enlivened. She saw. She grew. She sweated. She changed. She learned. She shed her skin. She bled on the pages of her days. She walked through walls. She lived with intention."
I live for telling stories and documenting moments not only at weddings but also from the sidelines of college and professional sports for major national clients like Getty Images and Sports Illustrated. When you really think about it, sports and weddings are similar because you often only have one chance to document a fleeting moment. It's something that you have to be able to anticipate and I thrive on that kind of pressure.
Access is everything when it comes to capturing unique images. I work hard to develop a rapport with yourselves but also your parents, friends, family and other guests. My goal is to become part of your inner circle in a way that people forget that I have a camera and that's when I'm able to photograph something really special.
Based in Grand Junction, Colorado, I photograph gorgeous Colorado weddings in the Grand Valley, the Rocky Mountains, and beyond. I also travel to Austin, Texas to photograph a limited number of weddings each year.
Drawing from 10 years of experience with fine art, editorial, and photo-journalism, I apply all of these sensibilities to tell the story of your wedding day from beginning to end with genuine, unscripted moments, important details, and unique portraits.I am based in New York over the summer, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for the winter but travel to every nook and cranny in between.
Kathryn Wallace Yeaton
Our style & grace, is based on delivering classic fine art quality, while maintaining with the edgy trends of today. We like to create art, out of rehearsed & unrehearsed candid moments. We are obsessed with light, as well as shadow to create a flattering look.
Luminus thrives, while getting to know our couples through engagement sessions, or on the wedding day. The emotion in your portraits, will stem from your comfort in front of the lens with us, the experience we can provide, and the love between you two!
I have been fortunate to win numerous International wedding photography awards and have photographed 500+ weddings. Prior to my wedding photography I was a news and sports photojournalist.
We have been photographing weddings for over 6 years and what we have found is that while every photographer claims to have the best equipment, our claim to fame is our unique eye - one that sees you and the love that makes this marriage so special.
We will find that love story and your album will be not simply a collection of photographs, but a journey through the best time of your life, a path woven through carefully selected photographs that find the moments that matter. We do more than capture a wedding, we create memories.

Funny and clever and special photographs of all the little moments you didn't even realize were happening all around you. I'm not just there for you today. I want you to treasure your photographs in 5 years, 10 years, 50 years from now.

YOU WANT SOMEONE WHO'S GOT YOUR BACK
You want someone who can deal with last minute wedding disasters and won't miss a beat. Need a bottle of water? Don't know how to pin a boutonnière? I'm there for you, all the while keeping an eye out for your Mom shedding a tear when she sees you in your wedding outfit for the first time. Thanks to lots of experience at lots of weddings, I know what to look for and my goal is to keep you feeling relaxed and focused on what's really important.
He has photographed weddings in Greece, China, Costa Rica, Barbados, Mexico, and all over the United States. So no matter where you are getting married, he will be there.
I'll do what it takes to get the shot - army crawl on my belly, climb a tree, tip toe through lava rocks, and even get waist-deep in the ocean.
I believe in genuine connection, documentary style shooting, gorgeous light - both natural and manufactured - and the use of Hawaii's epic landscape to showcase your love for one another and this gorgeous island.
The flowers will wilt, the dress will hang in a closet, the guests will leave - but your photos will stand the test of time. It is my aim to make you feel what your wedding day was like through your photographs.
A husband and wife photography team based in Arizona. We shoot every wedding as if it were our own, striving to capture the real emotions, moments and feeling of the day in a visual narrative that is uniquely you.

Please call or email for more information. I'd love to be with you to tell your story on your wedding day.
I always believe photographs were a way to "freeze" cherished moments and memories. I think that they cannot be reproduced, and without a camera, they would be gone forever. So, every day, I pursue the love of photography and have learned new ways to see the world through lenses.
Presently, I decided to build a milestone in my journey by offering service as a wedding documentary photographer to clients! I look forward to showing them my unique perspective in capturing their precious moments and memories as a way to preserve them for years to come.
My journey continues, and I hope you will join me!
I split my time between the Bahamas, Maine, and the San Francisco Bay Area with my two young children, husband and crazy little dog. I love animals, nature, fun dinners, good books, new places and nice people.
I appreciate your time to read my profile and visit my website. That's a good start to get to know me!
As a wedding photographer, I live a creative, fulfilling existence while being in service to others.
My complex yet caring personality allows me to beautifully capture depth and emotion in everything I shoot; candids, moments, details and portraits.
I maintain a quiet presence. I'm not invisible, but most people forget I'm there even when I'm only a couple feet away. I don't manufacture moments. or arrange scenarios to replicate pictures made elsewhere. These pictures should be about you, your life, your memories. So you'll never hear me ask you to do something again or in a different way. I observe, wait, and anticipate.
I let you be you and don't intrude upon your experience.
Your wedding is an extension of the two of you. You're full of joy at the idea of marrying the one you love, you're excited to spend quality time with your favorite people, and you yearn for something more than just a cookie cutter wedding. You want something unique to who you are and you want your photography to reflect that too.

Based out of Oakland & the San Francisco Bay Area, originally located in the Hudson Valley and NYC. I studied commercial art, and then completed a BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts. I've been in fine art exhibitions, and have had my images published in various magazines and publications throughout the US.
I take a fine art approach to my work, so my image delivery is tactile, with prints that can be touched, turned, and cherished. I offer a full range of professional fine art print products. Because I believe your memories are print worthy.
My style is to capture what is happening, how you and your guests feel, without being intrusive or clichéd. The images I create for you will reflect my training in fine art while simultaneously bringing back memories for years to come.
My attitude is to be creative and easygoing while maintaining the highest standards of professionalism.
I also love adventure and to travel!
Noah Jerome Ehlert
You like good conversations, interesting questions, honest answers, and extraordinary places to roam. Your passports are full of stamps and your walls are full of memories.
You believe life is worth living now and you don’t wait for the weekends. Because both of you are in love with every minute of your existence, you can’t wait for what tomorrow will bring.
Sound familiar? Then let’s create some amazing and meaningful wedding photography together!
Simply put, we are committed to creating a visual addiction to your wedding memories. Images with a fine art feel that speak to you and your family,
I really love photographing people, and I try to do my best to immortalize important and happy moments. I value the ability to express my vision, while meeting the needs and preferences of my clients. I believe in synergy--when both sides are on the same page, something really special can come out of a shoot. I love meeting people with various backgrounds and occupations. My customers inspire me a lot. I often meet camera-shy people, and I love seeing how they can open up and feel comfortable after a while; it's an enjoyable process. This career also allows me to create my own schedule and work in a comfortable pace when I edit.
But don't let the rock-n-roll attitude fool you; he is an experienced professional who delivers consistently great imagery and a luxury service to all clients, be they rockstars & athletes or the nice, young couple up the street.
Photography was and always will be our passion. Our style is artistic, documentary wedding photography. We are always trying to pick locations that are original, fun and exclusive for every wedding following our clients wishes and sensibilities. We are trying to be inspiring and positive so that your wedding shooting isn't just one of the obligations but the fun part of your wedding day.
Photographer of bohemians + rockers + artists + dreamers. At Kindred + Co. we don’t just create photographs. We create memories, peace of mind, heirlooms, connection, and magical moments.
LET’S CREATE SOMETHING MAGICAL TOGETHER.
I have an interest in creating photographic art and presenting images that tell really interesting stories and memories. When I'm working I prefer not to interfere with the event and situations I find myself in. Capturing the reality, moments and the stories is my focus.
I draw a lot of inspiration from my own vintage family photos. I like lots of contrast, desaturated colors and the aesthetics of German Expressionism; a style you see in classic film noir movies of the 1940's & '5o's.
I believe in goodnight kisses and holding hands as you fall asleep
My wife and I have been married for 8 years and share our house with four furry children and our 2 year old son
I'm often quiet, but I could talk about The Bachelorette for hours
I believe that exploring is more important than getting to your destination
I believe that converse shoes are everyday wear: comfort and style
I appreciate the beauty of light, shadow, and subtle emotion in fine art nudes
When I'm home alone I make pancakes for dinner
I believe the perfect day is an afternoon in the mountains and a night cuddling at home
I re-read my favorite books because a good story never gets old
I believe in planning your dreams
I SEE THE BEAUTY IN WHAT MAKES PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE
YOUR LOVE. YOUR STORY. MY PASSION
Let's go on an adventure together to capture the strength and uniqueness of your love and all the precious moments along the way!
Heather has over 10 years of experience photographing weddings and families. She strives to capture real moments that are rarely staged so that her subjects will relive every moment.
Most of all, we want you to be able look back at your wedding photos and be reminded of what that day felt like. We combine medium format FILM, which we feel has a timeless quality, with 35mm digital to capture those fleeting moments. Thanks for your time and consideration.
Brian F. Henry
Let me create something real for you.
When I'm not photographing rad folks in love, you can find me making music, playing DND, obsessing over someone's dog (please, let me meet your dog), or engaged as an activist in my community. I have made the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago my home for the last 8 years. I think marriage is amazing.
A long struggle with severe depression and anxiety caused me to see the world, especially love and happiness, in a much, much different light. Thankfully, that has defined what I do: I get to document the tears, the laughter, the love, and every other beautiful emotion a wedding day brings, and everything in between. I tell stories through my lens and watch two people take one of the most incredible steps together to begin their life's greatest adventure. And I don't know about you, but I love a good adventure.
Let's make some memories together.
I started photographing professionally in 2011 and have since photographed hundreds of weddings, families, and events worldwide. I studied photography under a few world-renowned photographers. However, everyone I met in my life has a little bit of influence on my work and it is ever evolving. I would describe my style as timeless, vibrant and full of life. These are the photos that won't look dated even if you look at them 20 or 50 years later.
Katye Martens Brier
I love journalism. I don't pose my images. I'm here to guide you through posed portraiture, but aside from that, your moments are yours to make.
Being part of a husband & wife team of photographers, I have a unique rapport with my second shooter. After ten years of attempted mind-reading, we are nimble, easy-going, and enjoy a healthy creative rivalry.
Kristina Cazares Neri
Laugh, smile, tears, I will catch every single moment, with discretion and by making people feel at ease.
I also consider that a genuine interaction with the bride and groom is the keystone of making coverage profound. For this reason, I always offer a first consultation and an engagement session. It is the best way for us to know each other.
I feel blessed each time I work with people who share the same state of mind as me, artistic people who do care about photography. I love sharing this special day with the bride and groom, making jokes and distress them all along the day. Besides candid photos, I also love, as my guilty pleasure, creating some artistic pictures that will astonish the bride and groom. Moreover, I will be proud to show them in my portfolio.
So if you are going to be married soon and you are looking for a photographer, I invite you to learn more about my work on my website and contact me for a first rendez-vous."
At every wedding I photograph, I challenge myself to create the best images I can for my clients. I would love to hear more about you and your wedding plans!
Fortunately, that changed after my first summer as a wedding photographer in South Lake Tahoe, California and I never looked back. The feedback I received during weddings and upon delivery of the final product motivated me to continue my pursuit of wedding photography. Today, I am an experienced wedding photographer, having shot weddings in downtown Sacramento, the California foothills, Quincy, Truckee, Reno, and almost every venue in Lake Tahoe.
I am deeply passionate about photography and capturing the most meaningful moments of your wedding.
I specialize in a photojournalistic approach, documenting your day as it unfolds. As a seasoned photographer with a wide range of freelance experience, I know how to anticipate the unique, natural moments of a dynamic event. I spot the key moments, big and small, that you will want stunningly, permanently recorded.
Creativity, attention to detail, and dedication define the services provided. Whenever possible, I utilize both my artistic skill for shooting the natural environment and and my experience as a wedding and event photographer to produce timeless, compelling imagery that truly captures the moment and the place you have chosen to get married.
Formal or casual, you have a vision for your wedding and I would like to be there to tell your story with my camera ...
I believe it's an honor to be able to capture the intimate moments, the quiet, unseen minutes, the loud happiness, the beautiful details, and the love that permeates the entire space.
Ed Zorz Hafizov
Besides the US East Coast, our weddings span from Alaska to Europe to India. Indian weddings are one of studio's specialties, and Ed travelled to India three times to complement a traditional coverage with a different flair for the fashion-forward brides.
I'm passionate about being outdoors, traveling and connecting with people. I will climb a tree, swim a river and roll in the mud to take a good photograph. A photograph that will express the Real-ness of the moment. That's what I strive for.
I'm based in Maryland, USA, but I'm happy to travel to wherever a wedding may take me.
I laugh at myself more often than not. My sister and I work together; we've been told multiple times that we need our own reality show. We are six years apart, complete opposites, and make the BEST team when it comes to shooting together.
I love the occasional adult beverage. (and by occasional, I mean at least twice a week)... again, cue "mom role".
My husband and I are eight years and two children into our marriage. It is incredible and only gets better every day. I want everyone to hold on to their loved one and never let go, no matter how hard life gets.
By getting to know our clients, we offer a highly personalized experience and creatively crafted photos that are distinctly you. And rest assured, everything from the look on your face when you read a sweet (and naughty) text from your Love - to your grandpa cutting up the dance floor to Usher's "Yeah" - will be captured for you to relive again and again.
Professionally-trained photographers, we also have backgrounds in business-management and graphic design, both helping drive our impeccable photography and excellent client-experience. We're passionate about our work and also being involved in the community. In addition to volunteering for a number of organizations, we also helped bring to life the exhibition "Homeless Is Not My Name," which featured portraits and first-person interviews of some of Milwaukee's homeless citizens, and aimed to personalize the issue of homelessness, dispel stereotypes and inspire involvement.
Along with Reminisce, we also have a commercial division, Noun Photography, where we specialize in creative photos of people, places and things. Clients include ESPN Wisconsin, Rogers Memorial Hospital, Good Karma Brands, Physicians Realty Trust, Milwaukee Food Tours and Bank Mutual, to name a few.
I am super invested in my couples, and having the privilege to document their special day is the cherry on the cake of my life. Any form of celebration of love and I'm there!
Our couples are bold and fearless. We all know we have double chins, imperfect angles, extra/fewer pounds, you name it. Who cares? We love ourselves and our couples do too. The moments we capture are not edited up to industry/family/friends standards but are raw and real.
I am stoked to be a part of your wedding day. And I am there to document every single bit of it. All the tears/laughter/hugs and awkward moves on the dance floor. Raw. Unique to who YOU are. And not based on anyone's idea of what it should look like or what you should look like.
I've worked as a photojournalist for 15 years including ten years for the Chicago Tribune. My goal is to search for and capture moments that go beyond the posed portrait to show not only how you look, but what you feel.
Your life is full of moments... it's my job to document them.
There won't be any orchestrating or directing and you won't hear me say: "Look here" "Move there," or "Do that again". In my experience, using this approach is how you achieve the real smiles, the real laughs, and the real moments. All you have to do is relax, be yourself, eat, drink and be merry... and I'll be there to document it.
The moment I picked up a camera, I realized it was my super power. It was love at first sight. Now, I create breathtaking, epic wedding images painted gracefully with Gods' light for the style obsessed bride. I cater to brides longing for a modern photography style with an artistic, high fashion approach. My award winning work has been featured in numerous bridal magazines, publications and books and takes me around the globe from the Florida Keys to London England, although you can usually find me barefoot, camera in hand by the ocean.
My work focuses on the raw, fleeting moments of a wedding day, as well as thoughtfully crafted photos of the two of you. I've captured hundreds of weddings in my career and honed a defined style that resonates deeply with those who love creative, visceral, photojournalistic images.
While my photos may be dramatic, on the personal side I'm as fun and warm as they come. I'm a thrill seeker, a world traveler, a true extrovert, and a terrible dancer.
My name is Alicia, and I'm a designer/photographer living in Beer City USA (Grand Rapids, Michigan). Photographing weddings makes me wildly happy. I am so thankful that I am able to capture the love stories of real people, and provide them with authentic and honest images that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. No posing. No fake moments. Just couples and light and love.
Thank you for stopping by. I would love to work with you. Let's chase some light together.
From scouting the most interesting photo spots, to lighting for the best shots, to post-production, Allison ensures her clients walk away with exceptional and individual photographs of this most special day. She's most excited by her client's unique traits and ideas, and always has a blast building the most creative, interesting shoots for her brides and grooms.
Laura's heart is made happy by photographing couples wildly in love, and she would love to be your wedding photographer.
I am a graduate of Northwestern University with a degree in English literature, but have been working in journalism since my freshman year on the copy desk at the Daily Northwestern. By sophomore year, I took to photography, and a new passion was born, leading me to work with Agence-France Presse in Chicago during my college years and as chief photographer at the Budapest Business Journal in Hungary immediately after graduation. I made Budapest my home from 1998-2003 before returning to the US in late fall '03 to pursue wedding photojournalism.
My journalism work has appeared in many major publications (New York Times, Business Week, Chicago Tribune, Maxim, Car and Driver, etc.), and I have won several awards for my wedding photography from the Wedding Photojournalism Association, including placing in the Top 20 for 2007 Photographer of the Year.
My photographic approach celebrates that.
I document weddings with a mindful balance of pure photojournalism, creative and classic portraits, family photos, and an easing attitude. Here you'll find a wedding photography experience that is authentic and natural and easy and spontaneous and beautiful and respectful and hilarious and ultimately REAL.
I hunger for the real moments of life.
I am a junky for vital living, breathing, spontaneous moments of beauty and emotion.
These naturally arising moments of life are like oxygen to me.
I picked up my first camera at the age of 5. My father gave me the gift of a German 120mm roll film camera and a small black and white enlarger. With great patience he would help me process and print the images I captured. By the time I was seven I was making photos on my own, capturing my friends and family. From those early days, the hunger to capture real life images has never left me.
Little did I know that his gift would be the gift of a lifetime. Now, every time I show up at a wedding I can share this gift with others.
My award-winning work is published widespread in books, blogs and magazines, and my customer service has won me the Best of Weddings nod by The Knot Magazine ten years in a row (2010-2019). Most recently, I became one of a select few photographers inducted into The Knot's Best of Weddings Hall of Fame. Although I've photographed hundreds of weddings over the past 15 years, I'm 100% confident that your wedding is going to be my all-time favorite.
You're about to experience some of the most special memories of your lives, and I can't wait to see your smiles as you take it all in. If you're interested in beautiful, artistic photographs in addition to a VIP customer experience, please contact me today. We're going to have a lot of fun together. :)
I absolutely love what I do.

I studied for my BFA in Photography + Design in Massachusetts and in Florence, Italy.
I do not follow a checklist of pre-determined poses that reflect who I want you to be for the camera. You are not mannequins. You are living, breathing, energetic and vibrant beings. We work together to find genuine sincerity in every moment. I will direct you through the portrait session in a way that draws out your unique personality while also conveying an artful aesthetic.
Mentors and peers describe my work as 'straddling the cinematic and photojournalism genre.' I look to frame you in both light and shadow. It is in our everyday life, and should be a central character in your story. It creates mood, depth, nuance, passion, mystery, contrast and harmony - just as in real life.
Our approach to wedding photography is very personal. As a husband and wife team we have the luxury of being the ones to meet with you in person, photograph your engagement sessions, edit all your photos and deliver a finished product we are invested in. On a wedding day we take everything from our time before hand and draw inspiration from it to create classic, unique and artistic photographs.
Our style is a blend of fine art, photojournalism, candids and grandiose posed imagery. We like to have a good time and focus on the experience. We are an unobtrusive addition to your wedding day moments, capturing them in an honest nature so that when you look back at these photos you are placed right back in that moment.
Now I am living my dream as a wedding photographer in Washington D.C., and traveling for destination weddings nationally and abroad.
I am known for my documentary style which keeps me focused on candid moments and true emotions. It’s those kinds of story-telling wedding photos that you will see throughout my portfolio. When you trust me to be your wedding photographer, I want my photos to speak to you about your life, (not just make you look amazing). Of course, I’ll capture gorgeous portraits, group shots, and details to fill in your collection, and I’ll do it all without controlling the flow of your celebration. When you look at your photo years from now I want you to feel the emotions you felt on your wedding day, just like it was yesterday, and remember how comfortable you felt in front of the camera.
If you find yourself drawn to my work, please reach out. I would love to know what captures your heart and makes you smile, and if our calendars align I would be thrilled to be your wedding photographer.
All the best,
My passion for immersing myself in, and documenting, different cultures and experiences sparked my interest in photography.
While shooting weddings, I document the day truthfully, capturing real moments between you, your family, and your friends. I also create dramatic, stylized portraits that are tasteful and timeless.
I look forward to hearing from you and telling the unique and unforgettable story of your wedding!
When I say I want your photos to be just so, I don't mean that solely as a pun on my name - I want them to be a perfect reflection of your day, of the big emotions and spontaneous moments you'll want to remember forever. That means I lean heavily towards the photojournalist style of wedding photography, capturing your day as it unfolds organically around us. I'm going to lay in a gutter or climb on that unsteady picnic table or seemingly abandon you at the end of a dock in an embrace in the moonlight to get that just so shot. We're going to laugh together or, at the very least, you will laugh at me, which is almost as good.
We love that photography allows us to create pieces of art while at the same time telling a story about your day. We are truly honored & grateful to all of the many wonderful clients that have entrusted us to capture their special day.
We'd love to learn all about how you met, how you fell in love and the beautiful life you're building together. Contact us today! We can't wait to tell YOUR story.
My goal and desire is to present you with imagery of your wedding that will capture the beauty, majesty, joy, tenderness, fun, love and passion of the event - precious memories for you to treasure for your lifetime, and to endure for generations to come. You are unique and beautiful, let your imagery reflect your taste.
Your wedding is a story that you've been making for months and years, one that expresses itself in your choices on your wedding day, the most important of which is your choice in a partner for life. But it also includes the favors you leave on the tables, the funny socks you wear, the cartoon character t-shirt hidden under your tuxedo, the family bible you carry with your bouquet, the locket with a photograph of your favorite grandmother that hangs around your neck. And it includes beautiful portraits of you as a couple, interacting, looking amazing, and being in love.
It is a great honor to be invited into a couple's life, even if just for a day, and we pay homage to the trust you give us by honestly, compassionately, and beautifully documenting one of the most important days of your lives.
With a BFA in Photography from the University of Michigan, numerous awards and publications and fifteen years of photographing weddings; my style is a blend of photojournalism and creative portraiture, with a fresh perspective that celebrates all of the passion, emotion and electricity that makes your life and love so unique.
I am going to capture the look of love in your eyes, the genuine giggle of a child and the raw emotion of a groom when he sees his bride for the first time. I'm not about copying another "jumping" bridal party photo. I'm not about making you pose in a cheesy formation. I'm about real. I'm about genuine. I'm about creativity, and I'm about art. I will capture your most celebrated moments with a piece of my artistry. I have a creative twist, a unique one and something fearless.
You will love what I do.
Together we provide couples with a creative, yet personal approach to capturing wedding day memories. We specialize in a photojournalistic style coupled with artistic portraiture.
On the morning of every wedding, I wake up and read the words on my wall:
"Today, I'm going to take the creative leap and craft unique images never made before"
"I'm going to capture the truth in the love between two people and create timeless images they can always look back upon; remember the reasons why they fell in love in the first place".
Here are the top 3 facts about Angela:
-She looks like she belongs in House Slytherin but is definitely a Hufflepuff.
-Her number 1 guilty pleasure is ridiculously cheesy girl movies. Most are very outdated.
-She has an unhealthy addiction to cats and cat related things.
True Love. True moments. True memories...
That's what Cortiella Photography is about!
I have a deep love for Darth Vader, Bruce Wayne, and all of the doggos. Literally all of them.
I'm a Northern Indiana based photographer that loves capturing the feel-y moments.
You know, the ones that aren't awkwardly and overly posed?
The ones that show a tear on your cheek or you doubled over in laughter?
I specialize in weddings, portraits, and making sure you have a blast during our time together.
Although originally from Florida, I have always felt a deep admiration for the mountains, and am truly excited start a new chapter in Golden, Colorado with my husband and small dog.
The important part of what I do isn't just about what I deliver on the wedding day but what I leave with you for years to come. I will capture that family member or friend laughing just like they do, that person tearing up or crying just like they did, and you, so beautiful, just like you were. The photographs you'll receive won't just be pretty pictures, but rather memories you get to relive or stories you get to tell. They will awaken the sights, smells and sounds of your wedding day. These photographs, along with the rings on your fingers, will be the physical artifacts that you get to keep forever.
My passion for photography allows me to always be creative and to document every wedding in a unique way. I strive to provide the same customer service and personal interest in my clients that I would expect from others. The fact that I have always been able to surpass my client's expectations is what has given me the success that I have achieved until now.

We love the sense of keeping things natural, but go far beyond merely documenting. We throw ourselves into an event, flow in the moment, and focus on every detail that could evoke people's beautiful memories of a wedding. Detail never is trivial. It speaks for the event. It can be a ring, a dress, a decoration, but also a subtle change of expression, or a tiny movement of a finger. Our job is to collect, refine, and freeze those sparkling details, and put them all together to create a still movie, reminding people's presence at the wedding, forever.
I'm a wedding day problem solver who photographs I do's // unapologetically unfancy // owner of an almost always messy head of hair.
//forever looks like this//
We know weddings are not cookie cutter, every wedding is different and we want that to reflect in your photos. When you see your photos for the first time or look at them years from now we want you to be taken back to that day, that moment. We've worked hard over the years to give our couples an exceptional experience from start to finish! We like to build relationships with our couples so we can capture real emotional moments and more natural, relaxed images.
All of our work is artistically retouched and prepared to your satisfaction. Please check our Google reviews on our latest projects!
A little about Me!
Being a mother, I would always capture photos of my son not wanting to miss a moment of him growing up. As they were called "shots" by me, my husband called them something else.....real moments, memories! And the journey began, as my husband started to support me, although he was jealous in the beginning that my photos came out better. But, happy at the same time since both of us were competing to photograph our life...our son! As he grew, I was jokingly told that I should start taking professional photographs. After repeatedly hearing this suggestion, I decided to give it a shot and start thinking creatively and artistically. The photos came out really live and sharp. The weather turned sunny all of a sudden around me. In pursuit of perfection when it comes to photography, I decided to get some high-end gear and give it a whirl. Some of my close friends showed support by booking a fine portrait session. I was also given a chance to photograph a wedding, but for free since I had to prove myself first. It was a big day for me, a day to photograph a Chicago wedding, an Indian wedding. The wedding day of the beautiful couple turned up very prismatic for all of us. Wedding photography became a passion and obsession thereafter and my goal to capture timeless images of husband and wife solidified instantly. I was excited to make each couple's big day uniquely personal by sweeping each perfect moment.
First one went superbly well and it gave me extended motivation. After watching many youtube videos successively and taking certain key online classes, I learned all the techniques that professional photographers use to bring each image to life. I also shadowed professional photographers, videographers, and cinematographers who have been photographing for 20+ years. Their years of experience and style of fine art photography inspired me to work harder and make each wedding day just perfect! My husband says that the amount of work that is involved in professional photography is really tedious and boring, but I absolutely love it. My passion is to make sure each of my pictures tell a story, seize the moment and make it resplendent and theatrical. I am a big fan of love stories. I aim to translate language of your emotions into photos, bring them out and freeze in time to be cherished forever. Only then, I feel like I have succeeded or made my clients happy, in an amicably photojournalistic way. My ultimate goal is to become your photographer for all your events, especially a wedding photographer. My ambition is to capture photos of your beautiful wedding in a documentary style, as an ultimate photojournalistic wedding. With your help and support from friends and family, I also want to turn DARS Photography into an award winning photographer. I have lived in Chicago all my life and would love to incorporate Chicago style photography by collaborating with all the wonderful wedding vendors. My objective is to make your wedding album stunning and breathtaking. I review brides magazine routinely to get new inspiring ideas and offer free engagement session on some of my wedding packages. There are many top Chicago wedding photographers and I learn something new from all of them, hoping to become the best wedding photographer.
I started this business in 2003 after having shot a few weddings alongside other photographers. I had a vision for how I wanted to do things and running my own show was the only way to make that happen. I quit my day job in January 2007 and have been a full-time photographer ever since, having shot hundreds of weddings over the years.
I specialize in documentary people photography, and work hard to create meaningful images from one of the most important days in the lives of my many wonderful clients. Visit my website or contact me to learn how I can do this for you.
I believe in documenting lifestyles and people. Each person has different experiences creating who they are, and who they are becoming. It excites me to go into a wedding day to see the dynamic of families, and the connection of couples.
Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or price inquiries. All my packages are customized based on what my couples need because let's face it, every wedding is different! Every couple I work with is looking for something different from their photographer! I'm here to build a package that works best for you! I look forward to hearing from you!
I work to build relationships with my clients so that I get to know the REAL people I'm working with. I photograph authenticity and REAL people, telling their unique story using insight on who they actually are. I capture candid moments as they were meant to be seen.
I'm adventurous and constantly improving my craft. I push myself to learn new styles and techniques so that I can provide only the best photos for each client. Each person is unique, and their photos should reflect who they are. You aren't square, so I won't stick you in a box.
All we have is NOW. Let's capture these fleeting moments and create heirlooms to be cherished for generations.
Our goal? To create imagery that brings your wedding day and all the emotions jumping back to life. Every single time you see them. Each time you flip through your wedding album. From the day you see it for the first time until 60 years from now. You should feel alive. Alive, and excited, and on top of the world.
I absolutely love photographing weddings and being a part of such a magical day for two people and their families. Whether you are getting married in Colorado, eloping, or having a destination wedding outside of Colorado, I'm your girl! Please don't hesitate to get in touch. I would love to hear all about the two of you as well as your wedding plans!
Every time I pick up my cameras and begin to photograph a wedding, I feel excited. The art and craft of photography is so limitless, there is always something new to discover, there is always something surprising. We are living in a golden era of photography right now! Most of us have amazing little HD cameras built right into our phones and are sharing pictures & video with each other every day. I love being a part of this culture of capturing memories and reliving some of the greatest moments of our lives through photography.
Our style is bold, vibrant, and natural. We absolutely love capturing moments that "in the moment" that will allow you to feel like you were there when you look at your day. Most importantly, we want our couples to have a great time and enjoy this day that happens once in a lifetime! We'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to reach out for more information.
As a wedding photographer, my mission is to create a personal collection of artwork that will serve as a forever reminder of the love you share. I unobtrusively create a beautiful documentation of your wedding day as it naturally unfolds.
I work throughout South Jersey & Philadelphia as well as travel for destination weddings.
I believe in LOVE...true, genuine, authentic, and the uniqueness of your relationship that makes your WEDDING one of a kind!
I believe in SOULMATE, best friend and partner to enjoy life's adventures, experience its ups and downs, and grow old with.
I believe in documenting your family history and creating tangible quality HEIRLOOMS that your grandchildren and their families will enjoy for many years to come.
I believe in LEGACY, your soul and heart put into your family that will become valued family history and treasured long after your time is gone.
But most and foremost, I believe YOU deserve your LOVE to be captured the right way. It is not a photo-session, it is YOUR WEDDING DAY!
As Chicago Wedding photographers, we're lucky to be able to shoot in one of the most beautiful and artistic cities in the world. If you're interested in wedding photography that is artistic, modern, and bold, we'd love to hear from you!
Our style is a mix of documentary photography and cinematic portraits, My favorite thing about wedding days is the possibility to experience something new, every time. I appreciate the exposure to different family dynamics and cultures that wedding photography has given me, and I get a thrill out of spying on people and watching for their truest emotions. More than anything, I just want my couples to be happy and enjoy what should be the best day of their lives up to that point.
I also believe that if at least one guest or venue staff member hasn't told me that I "must be exhausted" at least once every wedding, I'm not doing my job right. :)
Elizabeth J Dilley
The most important thing to us is making an incredible connection with our couples. The more we can learn about each other the more tailored our images become for each couple we have the honor of working with.
We actively seek out couples who love each other fearlessly, who know that life is the greatest adventure and you and your best friend are ready to take it on hand in hand. So if that sounds like you, we'd love to document your story.
That being said, I tend to stand back and let my couples interact with each other to capture that true raw emotion when they think no one is watching, that's when I snap the oh so perfect image. I shoot in a photojournalism style, mixing in highly stylized imagery and a whole lot of fun to document the unique story of your wedding day.
After all that I can tell you I'm a outdoor enthusiast and take a 2 week hiking and backpacking trip every year. Cats and dogs are both my friends and I always have to have my morning coffee.
I'm married and currently reside in SE Michigan, in a small house surrounded by nature. I have two kids, two dogs, two cats, and a horse. I love hiking, authentic Mexican food, and craft beers.
My wedding work is often described as wedding photojournalism or documentary style, a style I helped pioneer in Seattle since 1999. I regularly travel for weddings, and have been commissioned to photograph weddings all over the world.
For each commission, I will personally create a collection of work which documents the unfolding of the wedding day as it naturally happens; and, will provide you with emotional imagery of the couple, their families and friends.
Du Wayne Denton
That is where I step into the picture. With years of photographic experience and a long list of destinations that I've traveled to throughout the world, I live to capture these epic moments. For me, nothing is more important than producing a true representation of the day. With every image, you will feel every emotion that you felt in that moment, and instantly, you'll remember the beautiful place that you so carefully chose to celebrate your love. These are the memories that need to be celebrated, printed big, and placed into a beautiful frame in your house.
Let me show you all the creative possibilities.
Seven years ago, I was asked what my dream job was. Without hesitation my boastful response, "a traveling photographer" filled the room. I didn't know then but the journey to full-time professional photography was right around the corner. In 2011, after being laid off, I decided to no longer just dream about doing what I love but to jump in feet first.
I pride myself on originality, authenticity, creativity and most importantly, high quality imagery. Creating the nostalgic feeling that you get when you look at your photographs. The feeling of elation and pure joy that engulfs you after.
My photographic style is rich and vibrant. I love blue skies, bright colors, I search for high contrasts and intentionally create a bit of drama. I use flash to manipulate light in order to get the result I want and I use editing softwares to enhance an image and reach the final artistic look I desire. My sessions are a mix of lifestyle/documentary moments and more elaborate fashion-like set ups. I enjoy looking at things from different angles and create unexpected compositions.
I am located in Sonoma, CA and serve the greater Bay Area.
Matthew J. Ellis
I'm passionate about capturing the magic of the human interaction, those seemingly fleeting moments that turn into timeless memories. Your story is unique and it deserves to be unveiled in a unique way; your life unfolds genuinely moment by moment - unstaged, wild, raw - and it yearns to be seen as such.
I'm there for it all.
My wife and I rolled up in a golf cart and walked down the aisle together. Our dog was our (reluctant) ring bearer. I think a wedding should be unique to you and what you want. Show me what you're about and let me show you how awesome that is!
I have a BA in photography and have been photographing weddings since 2007. I shoot alone or with a second shooter who also happens to be my husband, which again--best job ever? I think so. I'm based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming--home of the Tetons, Yellowstone National Park, and some of the best skiing this side of the Atlantic. I'll also happily travel anywhere you'd like me to go, whether it be Casper or Katmandu.
We became wedding photographers because we loved each other. Four months after our wedding day, we set off on a kayak adventure, paddling from Maine to Key West. This took us over a year and a half, 2500 miles, through some of the worst and best days of our lives so far and cemented our love for one another. On that trip, we realized that we wanted to be together all the time, not trading our numbered days for a number on a paycheck. This business is how we made that happen in our love story.
We share our lovely little apartment with our sweet little dog, Hattie. Most of our time is spent snuggling her, hustlin' in our home office, watching YouTube, embroidering, surfing, and dreaming about travels and fresh ideas.
Our photography style can be defined as creative & cinematic, with a mix of dramatic and intimate wedding portraiture using a candid approach. In other words, we use both traditional and photojournalistic styles when they are most appropriate throughout the day.
I believe in fate as well as chaos. Our most important moments in life are surely a blend of the two. The beauty in life is not in perfection, but in the mess that is uniquely yours and will prove to be your legacy.
So thank you, in advance, for considering me to be a part of preserving your heritage and leave for your children the story of you.
Years later, I have developed my photography skills to put my own personal flair to the moments I capture while being as accurate to my client's request. I want to use everything I have learned on my journey to help capture these memories and have clients fall in love every time they look back on these moments.
While wedding photography is my specialty, I have done all kinds of editorial and commercial assignments, from cookbooks to fashion to news photography. For nearly a decade I held various faculty positions in photography programs, with courses covering studio lighting, location lighting, advanced photography technique, portraiture, documentary, and yes - wedding photography.
Kate Connolly Testa
On your wedding day, my whole goal is to capture those real moments of laughter, tears and awe, so I love a good candid and always strive to take on a photojournalistic approach with my images to tell your story the best way possible. It's always fun to have previous couples come back to me and thank me for certain shots because they had no idea that their grandmother cried during their ceremony or that there was a push up contest on the dance floor during reception. That's what I live for!!
Based in Virginia and originally from Belarus, I've traveled all around the world meeting people from dozens of cultures and backgrounds, and over the years I've honed my style into a blend of documentary photography with a fashionable, European flair. If you'd like to get gorgeous and play in front of the camera, I'm definitely game. And if you want to stay away from posing, I'll stay in the wings to make you look stunning anyway.
Please give me a call or drop me a line, and let's talk about what matters most to you when it comes to wedding photography. Because after all, that's what matters most to me.
You're here because you want to connect with an awesome wedding photographer. You don't want just some stranger following you around with a camera, but a friend invested in capturing your story. Someone who understands that you're looking for more than beautiful images - because you deserve to have images that feel like you through genuine moments and portraits.
And that's exactly what I strive to take care of for my couples! I want you to enjoy peace of mind knowing that I'll be there to capture your wedding day in its entirety for you to relive again and again.
I capture the details that few people notice, the moments everyone wants to remember, and ultimately the feelings that can be relived, over and over, for years and decades to come.
I love the tears of a dad seeing his baby girl as a stunning bride. I love the friends and family that have traveled hours (sometimes days) just to let their hair down and celebrate this incredible day with those getting married. Of course I love the two people at the center of it all, dancing and in love and soaking it all in.
I'm honored that I get chosen to tell the story that my couples and their children (and maybe even grandchildren) will revisit for the rest of their lives.
Weddings are crazy. Let's make some art, y'all.
Cherlyn Wagner has a background in fine art & fashion design and studied film photography where she found her start in the darkroom, because of this she has a love of black & white images. Before her start in weddings, she documented births which she attributes her start and love of storytelling and documentary skills. She fine tuned her wedding photography skills by assisting & second shooting for several established photographers, most of whom are fearless photographers themselves for a couple of years before going out on her own. She is dedicated in helping her clients feel comfortable, to remember to have fun and celebrate what is important to them by capturing their day as authentically and creatively as possible.
We value creativity, meaningful relationships, and FUN, and we enjoy meeting other couples who do too. We love new places, new faces, and the stories they have to tell - which means we're willing to travel anywhere. We believe weddings should be as unique as you are, and that the photographs should be as vivid and meaningful as the event itself.
My goal is to continue growing as an artist, while documenting all of the ways people love each other and celebrate that love - and to make it a fun and relaxed experience built on real connections.

I love meeting couples who are passionate about life and each other. My strength is storytelling through a series of images that show the many wonderful colors of your relationship.
Where I really shine, though, is when we get out of the box and start making something different with your images. Something beautiful, fresh and undone. I'll climb things, I'll lay in the dirt... whatever it takes. I'm also a ninja, minus the sword and mask. I sneak around, you probably won't see me, and I'll catch all the little quirky moments that truly depict who both of you are.
There is no aspect of photography more challenging or rewarding than capturing the true spirit of a person. My love of photography is fueled by my desire to capture the nature of humanity, interpersonal relationships, and emotion. There is no environment more rich in these elements than a wedding. A wedding is a convergence of two paths: unfolding through a series of moments,interactions, and emotions. My goal is to put those moments together to tell one single important story that will be shared between a couple and their family.
I tell stories in documentary form. I photograph weddings candidly as they unfold naturally, allowing couples to focus on the sights, sounds and feelings as they occur. My portraits mix naturalism, context, and creativity to express the power of people.
Your wedding day shouldn't be a series of arbitrary photo moments, "Say cheese!" You're counting on your new friend to share what is special about you and your love. I immerse myself in the preparation and execution of a photographic vision for your wedding day. It starts with the consultation process and ends with us spending an entire day together capturing timeless images.
I'm driven to make every wedding the best wedding I've ever photographed and to give you and your loved ones a guest experience that complements you're union. We're both after the same thing; an amazing photographic experience!
You'll find that my client interactions and photography reflect the high value I place on family, honesty, intelligence (I am a Ravenclaw after all), and humor. My other roles include: craft beer drinker, Denver Comic Con volunteer, luckiest wife in the world, and dog momma.
I adore what I do! Thank you for considering me to photography your awesome day! Please check out my website for more information.
I'm Adam, a Washington DC Wedding Photographer and I'm already excited to photograph your wedding! I was born for meeting people and telling their stories. My couples don't fit in a box, and neither does my work. I'm not a model and I don't expect my couples to be. If this sounds like your adventure, tell me more about your wedding!
Being a photographer has opened my eyes to many amazing moments that happen around me and has opened doors to endless possibilities. I've had the chance to work with some amazing couples and being able to capture the love, laughter, and tears on one of the happiest days in a persons life is something that will never cease to be a joy for me.
In wanderlust and going where the universe takes you.
In jumping - sometimes the rocks aren't as sharp as they seem
That smart is the new sexy
In 60s Rock n' Roll - who needs Kanye when you have Paul and John
In continually adventuring and trying bold new things
In dancing until your shoes fall off
That PB&J tastes amazing at the top of a mountain
That giving time is more important than giving a gift
There's no photography expedition too small or too large. I love connecting with couples over alpine hikes, talks about how awesome dogs are, or drives up mountain passes to catch that perfect light cresting over the mountain. Over the past eight years photographing, I've become known to push my boundaries - both artistically and physically - to produce the best memories for my couples.
Your wedding photographer is so much more than just a portfolio or a set of "FAQs". Brett believes the heart of good wedding photography is a healthy relationship between a couple and their photographer and that your photographer should be your trusted sidekick on your wedding day.
I started my career as a photojournalist for the Orange County Register in Southern California. I took what I learned from that experience and applied it to the world of weddings which has brought me where I am today. As of 2018 I've shot almost 400 weddings and hundreds of engagement sessions and other events. Today, my wife and I love capturing couples' love stories in Colorado and througout the country. We offer wedding, engagement, boudoir and all types of portrait photography. Send us a message and let us know how we can capture your special moments!
We've worked around the country spending time with people from diverse backgrounds. These instincts help us document weddings as they unravel, while being unobtrusive. Photography has enabled us to travel, meet incredible people and share their stories; we are truly grateful for all the encounters and opportunities that being behind the camera has allowed us to experience. We love to go hiking, explore the beautiful outdoors, and push our creative limits as photographers.
Your story matters, and deserves to be told with creativity and an eye for the unexpected. We are always looking to see the world differently and love a good challenge that pushes us creatively to achieve more for our couples.
When I'm not chasing sunsets with my clients, I'm sharing everything I know about living life outside with my teenage daughters. My perfect date night is riding bikes to the climbing gym and then grabbing beers after. My rescue dogs are my favorite people.

My style is a mixture of documentary and artistic. Which means that I try my best to not make adjustments so that I can capture the raw feelings in the moment but I can arrange things so that they look great. I simply love bring out beauty that not even the subjects know they have!
I like a hands off approach to the day, providing input when I think it's needed if it benefits your story. Let's chat about your story and see if we are a good fit. If so, I would love to hang with you on your special day. Thanks for stopping by.
I've studied with masters of wedding photography and developed my own style. The result is vivid documentary, with fun posing, creative use of light and composition, and timeless imagery.
Wedding photography can be so much more. I capture the love, raw emotions, tender moments, and whooping and hollering fun of the day!
He's the honey to my bee (Ashley likes food). She's the HD to my TV (Graham likes technology). We have been best friends since the 6th grade. We know what it is like to find the love of your life, and we love getting to celebrate that with our clients.
We absolutely love photography. We are really blessed to get to be with people on the most important day of their lives

My name is Stefy. I was born and raised in Germany and moved to the US 12 years ago. I come from a photo journalistic background, shooting for a German daily newspaper, but found out I enjoy wedding photography the most.
Professionally trained overseas, I worked and traveled the world as a documentary and event photographer. I love to capture moments. Telling your story. Like a return button in time. Moments that are not captured, will be lost forever. This sounds a little cheesy.... but if you think about it.. it is very true. Can't wait to hear about your story.
I have a special interest in intimate weddings (less than 30 guests) and New England elopements.
The experience of living and traveling in so many different places makes Will become an adaptable and open minded person. He appreciate those lessons life taught him and try to get inspired from them to his creation.
As a photographer, one of the way that Will observe the world and people is to see though his camera lens. Will enjoy the moment while he is capturing "the moment" so much, and he truly believe that is the key to become not only a successful photographer, but also a joyful man. People just have to fall in love with what they do.
Although our deep tones, moody light, and candid style is a bit of "the trend" these days, there's really no one quite like us in the area. We've been referred to as the Chip & Joanna of the Wedding Industry lol, however we do not have a farm. We do however have 3 kids, a bearded dragon and a golden doodle named millie. That's kind of a farm I guess. ;)
I would say that any level of success we've achieved has been do more to our personalities than anything. I like to break dance and pop. It's not uncommon for me to bust out a windmill at receptions if the party needs jumpstarting. LOL! Katie doesn't breakdance, but she's freekin hot! LOL! And she's just super cool. She instantly becomes each Brides best friend. We try hard not to get distracted with signing autographs and taking selfies with guest at events and just try to focus on the work. I'M KIDDING!! We just love to have a blast shooting LOVE! It's what we were meant to do!
If you're feeling a connection with us, our work, any of it...we'd love to chat!
Connection- Showing deep relationships in photos is one of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer. I am always looking to create photos for my clients that will evoke special memories of their wedding day for decades to come. My style is best suited for couples are willing to spend a few hours on their wedding day to create these beautiful, timeless and romantic photos that show this special connection. In Ukraine, it's not unusual for the bride and groom to spend 3-4 hours on photography! t I LOVE couples that want to go to multiple locations and really maximize their investment in their wedding photography.
Details- I know that every element of your wedding was chosen with care, so I want to show the beauty in the fine details of your day. I carefully use lenses that will bring out the best angles of in the photos I take. I use telephoto lenses whenever possible for portraits to create dramatic backgrounds and I use macro lenses that show every facet of the ring. My experience as a teacher in Ukraine means that I know that the devil is in the details, so I am very organized in my approach to your day. I can wrangle big groups of people with ease, and I make sure no detail is missed!
Light-For centuries, light has inspired artists. It's always important, and I am continually seeking new ways to utilize it at weddings. The art of wedding photography depends on the photographer understanding how light will impact a scene. Whether I am using natural light to enhance a photo or if I am setting up carefully controlled lighting situations such as a night portrait my goal is always the same; to create a photo for you that you will consider art.
My name is Jayde and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Arizona. I am passionate about giving my clients tangible memories that they can cherish for generations. I strive to make every photo I take frame worthy. I want you to be able to look back at your photo album and have the photos tell the story of your wedding day from start to finish.
My photos and weddings have been featured on the cover of AZ Wedding Magazine, in WedAZ magazine, The Knot and Shutter Scene Magazine.
With more than 20 years of experience as an award-winning photojournalist, I bring my expertise for visual story-telling to every wedding and celebration. My coverage area includes all of New Jersey, NYC, Long Island, Hudson Valley and Connecticut, as well as destination weddings. I love diversity, and have photographed dozens of LGBT weddings, Indian and Orthodox weddings, and other unique ceremonies.
My philosophy is simple: I don't do much directing or posing, but prefer to let moments unfold naturally in true documentary style. I capture what you feel, and my clients describe my images as fun, fresh, and forever. I look forward to speaking with you about your big day!

I take the time to get to know the couples that I work with and find out their story. I find that by doing this, it makes everyone more comfortable and relaxed on their wedding day. My style results in wonderful, natural photographs of the couple, who feel free to express their emotions and are not inhibited around the camera or me.
I've been a wedding photographer for about 8 years (but have been studying photography since I was 13). I've explored quite a few avenues in photography, but I've found my niche capturing weddings. There's nothing more rewarding or humbling to get to have the responsibility of documenting one of the most important days of a couple's life.
I'm not about stiff awkward poses of your relationship. I'm about the genuine, quirky, sarcastic, teasing, loving, quiet, loud, fun, and unique love that you have.
I wanna capture the real stuff for you. I wanna get the big moments, the in-betweens, the ones you don't think anyone else is watching. I'm not a story teller, I'm a story listener. Tell me about your story, and lets create something beautiful for you.
I absolutely love people and love photographing them. When documenting weddings I look for raw emotions and real moments. My goal is to show the beauty and the dynamics of each couple in a vibrant, genuine, yet elegant way. I strive to make your day enjoyable and your photo memories vivid and telling a unique story of yours.
I am inspired by my supportive husband, my loving 4 year old son and my beautiful 1 year old daughter.
That's what my tombstone will read some day. It's the one thing I know for sure about myself. Love itself is classic and resolute, flourishing in unexpected places, regardless of religion, racial makeup or sexual orientation. Love is the reason I have developed such a deep passion for wedding photography. How could I not love documenting the union of two?
While moving into my first apartment in 2008, I was forced to dust off an old box of photos. It reminded how much I enjoyed the creative side of photography. I immediatly dedicated all of my free time to developing my photography, eventually enrolling into Boston University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts. Now with the support and love of my wife and my daughter, I'm living the dream as a classically trained photographer
Inspired by love... Classic, timeless, refreshing
I am now planning my return in November 2019 with the plans of buying a van with my man and traveling the U.S. in the greatest road trip ever. Capturing and telling your love stories from coast to coast, on the tops of the tallest mountains and through the vastest deserts. I believe in authenticity and capturing your love in it's purest form, through the laughs and the tears. Let's have fun making candid moments to remember a lifetime. I can't wait to meet you and get to know more about you and what makes your love story so special!
Our style is focused on capturing, key moments and the ones that will clearly illustrate to future generations all achieved with a sense of humor, great lighting, and a trusting/relaxed relationship between photographer and client.
So yes - I'm going to capture the heartwarming moment when the mother of the bride adjusts her daughter's veil...I'm also going to get the sugar-crazed flower girl who steals the Maid of Honor's fancy bra and uses it as a hat all morning. I'll be there for the ceremonial cutting of the cake...I'll still be watching when the ring bearer starts gnawing the heads off of the cake topper. I'll photograph the touching grace of the parent/child dance, but I'm also going to be snapping away when your crazy uncle has a few too many cocktails and tries to do the Gagnam Style dance to When a Man Loves a Woman.
In the end, it all boils down to this: I'm not there to write your story. I'm there to help you tell it.
My photography style is mostly a photo-documentary approach with some occasional directing/positioning and tidying up of the scene. I focus on the candid and natural moments that happen throughout the course of the wedding day and I do my best to encompass all of the details of the day as well.
I capture stories. I believe that honest human moments produce the most beautiful photographs. When working with me there will be no stiff awkward poses because I want you to feel like yourselves in your images. The genuine, sarcastic, teasing, and loving moments is what I will find. Together we will capture the little things and the big feelings that show your real love. My ultimate goal is to create photographs that are not only visually stunning, but that speak with genuine emotion and tell the story of real life, as it happens.
On a personal note, my love for cameras started when I was a child. I constantly took my father's SLR film camera and shot for hours. Needless to say, the camera has since become my life. You won't find me without a camera.
I will help you research every bit of information out there that's relevant to your elopement destination, help you plan the logistics, let you know all of the ways I think you could heighten your experience even further, and show you exactly when & how you'll work it all in so you get a super epic wedding day adventure + beautiful photographs of it all.
I'm a professional photographer and founder of Blueye Images in Key West, Florida. I have been to more weddings than most people can say they have ever dreamed of. I started assisting a pro-photog when I was 14 and loved it.
I loved everything from the fashion of the wedding dress, to the style of the décor, the variety of flowers, and the overall magic that one feels as a wedding day unfolds before your very eyes.
I have a BFA in Visual Communications and a BA in Studio Art Photography from the University of Miami. I love art in all mediums and frequently find myself planning my next travel adventure. My professional work is very much inspired by my love of authentic, timeless, beautiful things, soft light, laughter, and raw emotion. I love my job because I'm tasked with telling each couples' unique love story. I get to create little pieces of artwork which serve as a beautiful reminder of people's best days. What could be better than that?? Shoot me an email or give me a ring and let's make some amazing images together!
For those who partake in such an exhaustive exercise, they've probably experienced what I've referred to as the "Cheeseburger Syndrome". It's where everything on the menu looks scrumptiously delicious in all the beautiful photos and the credentials look absolutely stellar. USDA Prime Beef smothered with a special sauce on an artisan bun? Just take my money already! But when the much-anticipated order finally comes out (albeit after a painstakingly long decision process), they're presented with an underwhelming mess of meat on a soggy bun and the special sauce turns out to be nothing but ketchup & mayo. The good news is that I am pretty handy with the camera, and my cheeseburgers are pretty amazing :)
Together, we will create a wedding day timeline that blends the practical with the creative, and the posed shots with the whimsical ones.
I'm a lighthearted, tree-hugging, bad ass multi-tasking, cat loving, adventurous spirit. I believe in trying new things, traveling as much as possible and loving my people hard. Weekends are for weddings, outdoor adventures, family, farmers markets, trying new restaurants, or chillin in my hot tub with a negroni and a Nat Geo.Having said that, the PNW is where I call home. I was born and raised in Seattle and will always be in love with the smell of rain, being surrounded by mountains, and going on awesome outdoor adventures.
Photography chose me and I embraced it. Self taught and armed with a passion for documenting life, photography gives me balance, perspective, and allows me to see things in a different light. Making a living doing something I'm passionate about is pretty much the best thing ever. I love building new relationships, supporting my community, and create something bigger than myself.
Nowadays you'll find me decked in camera gear rallying a rowdy wedding party, collaborating with local business owners to launch their new brand, or on a mountain top with a newly engaged couple laughing our asses off. My clients believe in my ability to tell their story and in that vulnerability and trust comes honest images that make them feel confident and understood.
It's an honor. Every. Single. Time.
When you couple what a person loves with who they love, it brings out the most epic joy.
But do you know what I love more than anything? Meeting new people and capturing their Incredible Stories. I am not that kind of photographer that just press black button and let it go. I want you to be happy, to have fun and remember it as one of your best experiences. I do things differently, my way, so don't expect forced smiles, uncomfortable company, and weird poses.
I know, that right now you read this information because you are looking for someone who can capture your memories. And here I am. But I want you to know: I am not a sales assistant and you are not my customer. So there are no things as client and etc. I want to be your friend, someone who will get a chance to know you better.
Your investment in your photos is an investment in your memories. Enjoy life and be well.
I took up photography as a college student; first as the university paper's primary photojournalist, then as a freelance portrait and event photographer. My affinity for the art quickly catapulted me into the intensely competitive wedding photography industry here in the islands, where I have thrived and taken on the challenges with a fierce enthusiasm.
Now among Hawaii's most acclaimed photographers, I'm seeking to bring my talent throughout the US and abroad, with the goal of producing jaw-dropping images that my couples will be sure to cherish forever.
The essence of my work is about creating visually compelling images that tell your story in a way that you can't see with the naked eye. I shoot in a creative photojournalistic style using environmental elements and often off-camera lighting to create striking, beautiful photographs. You won't find the trendy "light and airy" look here. I believe in creating something timeless that will look great even to your future grandchildren.
Michael David Reichmann
With nearly 10 years of experience shooting weddings, Michael has continually pushed his craft to become not only a competent photographer, but a friendly and welcoming presence on a client's special day.
I love creative. As a wedding photographer, I believe I can capture moments, emotions and the connection between two people that they can keep as a beautiful memory.
And I love making pictures.
I grew up around a large family, one that loved showing affection by feeding people. When my mom was in the hospital having my baby brother, there are reports of my dad making 'stuffed Anissa'.
I haven't stopped stuffing myself since.
With photos. With art. With love. With a genuine drive and passion to keep learning. To keep growing. And to keep connecting.
I love getting to know people. My day job as an palliative medicine physician has allowed me to gain insight into people's lives in genuinely profound ways. What an incredible privilege to be able to bring that into my work as a photographer and an artist.
I would LOVE to document the moments that define YOU and who you are - as a parent, as a child, as a sibling, or just as a human being. Whether it's the day you're professing your love for the one you want to spend the rest of your life with, whether it's the day you're bringing a new human into the world, or whether it's a day where you're struggling to just BE, I would consider it a huge honor to be witness to it and celebrate your life with you.
Jamie L Yacksyzn
Behind the camera, my style is calm, cool, and collected, and I work to make my clients feel the same by carefully guiding them through our shoots. With me, you'll never have to wonder where to look, when to smile, or where to put your hands. I also believe my job as a photographer is not simply to make beautiful images, but to do justice to the spirit of my subject-and that's why I work to showcase exactly why you rock in each and every shot I take.
I currently live in Las Vegas, Nevada, with my husband and adorable offspring, and I love food, music - especially indie rock and old school punk - and a chicken salad, double meat, with grilled veggies from Chipotle almost as much as I love my camera.
Darryl Ann Geske
As part of a husband and wife team, we each bring a unique perspective and level of teamwork. We strongly believe your photographers shouldn't feel like strangers on your wedding day, and we prioritize communication and building a real connection with our couples. We're all about authenticity, and we focus on moments that have meaning, capture the essence of your relationship, and tell your story.
Along with our two dogs, we live in a little log cabin in the woods. We maintain an appropriate balance between being homebodies and adventurers.
I want you to feel like you've got an extra friend at your wedding (who takes really great photos.) So let's have a beer. (I brew my own.) Let's meet for coffee. Let's talk about your wedding and how, together, we can make it awesome.
Memories of people, times, and emotions that may no longer exist. It dug up those emotions and reminded me of a simpler time, of simple loves and hates, of ambitions and accomplishments.
This is why I take photos. I take photos to remind people. To show them, in beautiful, artistic style, the love they have on this day. The way he makes you smile. The look on her face when you pledged your love forever.
That's why I take photos.
I anticipate the gestures and waves of emotion that burst from interactions among people or between a couple. Carrying two cameras at the reception enables me to catch a wide-angled dancing shot and as well as a raucous closeup moment between two people across the room.
With reception photos, I stop the action with my flash, but also allow the ambient light from the room to fill in the background with warm tones. This is especially useful in capturing my favorites - acrobatic dance moves!
I meet with my clients before the wedding to get a sense of them individually, as well as their relationship to each other. I'm interested in my client's expectations of their wedding photos and any suggestions they have for location for portraits. I'm friendly, easy-going, flexible and have a sense of humor which allows me to put people at ease.
Although I work solo on many weddings, I have a number of second shooters that I work with for larger weddings.
