My Community Profile


I'm a wedding and events photographer based in New York City.  I grew up in South Jersey and travel there frequently, so a lot of my weddings have been in NJ.  

I'm very laid back, and love shooting events.  I approach weddings from a photojournalistic angle.  I think posed portraits are too contrived, so instead I opt to capture people when they're unaware of my presence.  It allows for more candid expressions of emotion, which pleases a lot of my clients.  A few people have told me, "Wow, you seem to have been everywhere!  I didn't even notice!"  I just tell them, "Thanks, that's my job!"

No wedding plans for me just yet!  I'm joining this site because there's usually interesting articles on weddings and photography-related issues on here that I would like to comment on.  So here I am.
