My approach is about capturing the motion and emotion of your story. There’s magic in these moments and I’m committed to documenting the journey, as it unfolds naturally. Your story, told like no other.
A simple promise that has guided how I serve couples for over a decade.
Chapter I: Contact & Booking | 8-12 months before your wedding
This storytelling approach begins long before you walk down the aisle. To get started, please send over an inquiry via the contact section here. Afterward, I’ll follow-up to schedule a call. Our first call helps me get a better sense of your wedding vision and reveals big ideas for your custom photography collection.
During this time, I may connect with your wedding planner or other people directly involved in making your vision a reality. Whatever is needed to create the best work possible: photographs that leap off the page of your album and tell a story about who you are. After our call, I'll create a design summary, to present in person, that outlines your photography collection. If you support this vision and approach, I’ll follow-up with a written agreement and next steps to make it happen.
Chapter II: Engagement Session | 4-8 months before
I believe in working discreetly yet decisively because you deserve to feel completely at ease throughout your celebration. Your first experience with this relaxed approach is an engagement session here in NYC. Most of these adventures begin in your home so pets are welcome and encouraged.
While this session is a great time to get comfortable being photographed together, my focus is creating breathtaking images that celebrate the relationship: your ability to engage and be vulnerable and share your true self with your partner. These are the magic moments that make our work together so special. All of this set to the backdrop of your favorite places in New York City.

Chapter III: Research & Logistics | 2-7 months before
Leading up to your wedding, I go into research mode. Gathering notes from our meetings, exploring my collection of fine art and photography books, reviewing your engagement session, finalizing logistics, scheduling site visits, as needed, and diving into the unique challenges plus opportunities of telling your story. Most of this preparation happens with little or no additional work on your part. This means we may not speak for months after your engagement session is delivered but we’ll definitely connect about one month before your wedding to check in and review everything.
Chapter IV: Wedding Day
By the time your wedding day arrives, I’ll have a clear sense of what matters most and where to focus attention. All the while, you and your guests can relax at ease knowing that my team works decisively to capture the moment, without intruding or disturbing your celebration. This means I’m joined by a second photographer, when appropriate but rarely a third. We're supported by a talented team for logistics, design and craftsmanship who work behind the scenes to help everything run smoothly.
Chapter V: Design and Presentation | 1-3 months after
Design, editing and curation are the crown jewels of this studio. As a team, our focus is to turn the raw energy of your celebration into a fully edited photo essay: a curated collection of images that capture the motion and emotion of your celebration. If you live here in NYC, I’ll present this work at your home. After you approve designs, we finalize and deliver everything within two months. The result is a collection of fun, timeless and intimately real moments that tell your story, like no other.
