Available for local and destination weddings, I approach weddings as a photojournalistic photographer, which allows me to work unobtrusively to document your day accurately and faithfully. There are moments throughout the day that I will apply my knowledge & past experience with editorial photography to offer some creative direction - drawing inspiration from fashion, lifestyle & even glamour publications.
Much of my experience in photography evolved in Manhattan while working with editorial, fashion, photojournalistic & still life photographers for clients such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Interview, Real Simple & Self magazines. I feel this past experience is evident in my wedding photography style.
Brides & grooms prefer a photographer who is creative, intuitive, hardworking, organized, dependable & above all else congenial to be with on their wedding day. My clients are brides & grooms (and moms & dads) who want beautiful images of the day - capturing the events, emotions & details every minute of every hour as they unfold, morning, noon & night*. We will meet to discuss the details of your day to ensure that you receive the kind of images & service that is uniquely specific to you.
*Generally I don't offer hourly packages because I believe a wedding photographer should be present for your entire day. This way your wedding day and all of the days events such as getting ready, the ceremony, the reception as well as the formals etc, aren't rushed because of hourly limitations of the photographer. This applies mainly to Saturday and Sunday weddings however custom hourly rates can be granted to weekday weddings and off season weddings during months between November and April if cost reduction is a must (excluding destination weddings).
I have photographed weddings at:
The Aurora Inn, Beardslee Castle, The Belhurst Castle, Brae Loch Inn as well as other locations in Cazenovia, Cornell University (all locations), Dano's Heuriger on Seneca, E. B. Morgan House, Esperanza Mansion, The Fontainebleau Inn, Glenora Wine Cellars, The Ginny Lee Cafe at Wagner Winery, The Harbor Hotel at Watkins, Ithaca College, The John Joseph Inn, Jeckyll Island-Georgia, Keuka Lake Yacht Club, La Tourelle, Six Mile Creek Winery, Ventosa Vinyards, various locations in the 1000 Islands, many NY State Parks including Taughannock State Park, Treman State Park and more.
I am availble for destination weddings as well.
