not just another vendor

Planning a Wedding is a lot.

And you probably have a laundry list of to do’s that you’d like to startchecking off. But if we had to guess, when it comes to a photographer, you DON’T want:

• Someone who is unorganized
• Or someone who doesn’t know when to take control
• Or someone who tries to get too artsy or creative with weird angles and gimmicky editing
• Or someone who treats you like a dollar sign/number

YOU DON’T WANT JUST *ANYBODY* TAKING PICTURES OF YOUR WEDDING...

Because this day only happens once. And these pictures will be something you come back to again and again over the years.

WELL, YOUR'E IN LUCK!

BY FAR THE EASIEST TO COMMUNICATE WITH

“OUT OF THE DOZEN+ VENDORS WE WORKED WITH, HE WAS BY FAR THE EASIEST TO COMMUNICATE WITH THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS. DURING THE CEREMONY AND RECEPTION - HE SOMEHOW NINJA-STEPPED INTO THE SHADOWS WHILE BEING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ACTION AT THE SAME TIME.”

- JAMIE GIBSON. APRIL 2019

celebrating

all  love  stories

Every couple is welcome and encouraged to use our photography services. This means every race,
religion (or lack thereof), sexual orientation, gender, etc... You are welcome here.

It is also important for us to firmly mention that we support black lives, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, and
women’s rights. We do not subscribe to the old taboo that business and social issues should not be mixed.

It is important for you to know where we stand on these issues, which we consider to be basic human rights.

While we don’t expect to always hold the same exact views as all of our clients, we draw the line at supporting
black lives, LGBTQ rights, and TRUE equality for all. When I shop somewhere I want to know what kind of
people are getting my money, so I thought I would be real and upfront about it with you. — MIKE ZAWADZKI

“When all Americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free.”— BARACK OBAMA

YOUR WEDDING ISN'T A COMMODITY

And neither is a photographer - or any other vendor you’re considering for your wedding day. It is more personal and should be more personalized.

Which is why...

We work fast and efficiently on your wedding day. Photographing your wedding isn’t about growing our portfolio or turning the day into a fashion shoot. So we’ll work with you to create a timeline that gets all the important shots checked off and moves you along to more important things: the people you love and the party you planned!

We blend into the crowd, but we know the right time to take control. We know how to capture the energy without becoming a distraction. We’ll never be up in people’s faces during the reception. (Or times when we should be a fly on the wall.) But during family photos, a time that can be super stressful, you’d better believe we’ll be running the show!

We take photographs that truly stand out. We take photos of genuine reactions and moments as they happen. And our bold and timeless editing style ensures that your images don’t look like every other photo on Instagram. Instead, you come away with images that are completely one-of-a-kind and 100% you.

We truly care

ABOUT WHAT’S iMPORTANT TO YOU, AND iN RETURN...

You get a personalized experience that you feel like YOU are a part of.

(MIKE TOOK) the most amazing portraits of my husband and I

“MY HUSBAND AND I CREATED A VERY TIGHT SCHEDULE FOR MIKE SINCE WE DIDN’T WANT TO DO A FIRST LOOK BUT ALSO WANTED TO MAKE IT TO COCKTAIL HOUR (I KNOW….CRAZY…), BUT IT DIDN’T PHASE MIKE. HE WAS ABLE TO ORGANIZE OUR FAMILY AFTER THE CEREMONY AND GET EVERY SINGLE SHOT FROM THE BRIDAL PARTY PICTURES, TO FAMILY PICTURES TO THE MOST AMAZING PORTRAITS OF MY HUSBAND AND I.”

- RACHEL CATHEY, JANUARY 2020

your love story is a recipe

We LOVE being in the kitchen *almost* as much as we love photography. Maybe that’s why we look at weddings as a sort of collaborative recipe.

JUST AS COUPLES HAVE DIFFERENT TASTES FOR FOOD, EACH IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA.

Much of cooking starts with olive oil, onion, and garlic, but can go in so many different directions. The same can be said about our approach to photography.

We’ll start with some of the traditional poses that will make the older members of your family smile. Then, based on the rapport we’ve built together, we’ll mix in some more personalized shots of just the two of you loving up on each other. Once we’ve reached that place of trust, it’ll be beautiful.

1000000% what we wanted

“YOUR STYLE IS 1000000% WHAT WE WANTED. WE HATE
ROMANTIC BRIGHT LIGHT COOKIE CUTTER STUFF. WE WANTED SOMETHING PERSONAL AND UNIQUE AND
SOMETHING THAT SCREAMED “US”. YOU HIT THE NAIL
ON EVERY PHOTO.”

- GALINA SEIDMAN. MAY 2019

Our team of thoroughly-trained, trusted, friendly, and talented photographers are here to capture your story. Each has a cohesive style and acts as an extension of the brand. You’ll come away with an experience that is stellar from every possible angle -regardless of who is photographing your day.

After all, I’ve put my name on this company, so I wouldn’t allow it to be any other way.
