It has been a super long time since I have published a gallery that isn’t a wedding, elopement, or engagement session. I do occasionally take on family, senior, or maternity sessions from past wedding clients who have grown their family, or who have referred me to a family member, or friend. I love portrait photography, […]

Betsy and Rich were referred to me by my good friends Jen + Steven, who run Fox & Hare Photography. We immediately hit it off, talking about their wedding vision and plans at the very trendy, industrial, and hip Art Factory in Paterson, NJ – which is one of my favorite places to photograph. Visually […]

Most of my wedding couples book about 12-18 months in advance, but it isn’t uncommon to also have a handful of bookings within 12 months, and very occasionally there will be last minute work that comes. Jocelyn and Daniela broke this record though, reaching out to me only weeks before their nuptials! I quickly learned […]

This is the first year that I’ve put together a “Best of…” blog post for any of my photography work, and it was quite a bit of work. However it was worth all of the time, as 2019 was my best year yet for wedding photography. In 2019 I photographed over 40 weddings in a […]

Maximillian reached out to me just about a year ago after finding me on Instagram. As a photographer himself, “Maxi” let me know that he was a big fan of my photography and that he was also a photographer himself. It is always one of the biggest compliments when another fellow photographer wants to hire […]

Danjuma reached out to me and mentioned that he was looking for a photographer to capture a same-sex wedding with intimate and jovial moments. Supporting and being an ally of the LGBTQ+ community is something that I am passionate about in both my personal life and with my business. So I instantly wanted to know […]

Lauren first reached out to me about wedding photography back in September. We immediately hit it off and talked about a range of topics from John’s passion for brewing beer, to the woes of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They even called me for a phone consult during a game, which means they really wanted to talk […]

I was introduced to Veronica and Mike by my good friend Taylor Galloway, a photographer in Los Angeles. Taylor and I are both alums of Montclair State University and have stayed in close touch since graduating. When Taylor mentioned that he was going to be a guest at the wedding, I was excited that I […]

Mason reached out to me on The Knot several months ago about her Tampa and St. Petersburg wedding. We immediately hit it off and it was a true pleasure being her and Ryan’s wedding photographer. Sometimes the weddings I do are large extravagant affairs with up to 12 hours of action. Other times they are […]
