We strongly believe that bridal portraits should be a reflection of the wedding couples and each series should be unique, and topped with its own artistic flair. Our approach to wedding photography is that of a storyteller, and my style is a mix of photojournalism and creative portraiture. We will focus on capturing the atmosphere and real emotion, aiming to tell the story of your day visually.

We will photograph formals, but we’ll keep them short and sweet, so that we can concentrate on real moments and relaxed portraits. We work calmly and unobtrusively, ensuring that your big day remains exactly that – yours!

Our aim is to provide you with beautiful images that capture the spirit and fun of your day, so you can treasure your memories forever. Complete wedding commissions start from $6,000.


Regular portrait sessions last up to 2 hours and take place at up to two outdoor locations. This session type is ideal for high school seniors, model/actor head shots, engagement shoots, etc.

Mini portrait sessions last up to 1 hour and take place at one outdoor location. This session type is ideal for newborns, maternity shoots, professional head shots, etc.

Prints, albums and digital files available. Please email me for full investment details!


I shoot a combination of artistic photos (fun and creative images perfect for displaying) and journalistic photos (to document the event as it unfolds).

The Wedding Collection is $6000 and includes engagement and bridal sessions, two photographers on your day, digital files, and an album. The Wedding Collection is the best value, but a la carte options are also available.


Please don’t hesitate to ask about weddings outside of New York City or the continental US. Contact me for full investment details!


One of my biggest passions in photography is working with bands to promote their music. If you’re an emerging artist, professional photography is a huge factor in your image as a solo musician or group. If you’re established in the music industry, give your fans some new material, renew your promotional front, or create something for your album artwork. I’d love to help you realize your creative ideas!


I love going to shows! And I rarely go without my camera. I try to capture multiple angles of the show to represent not only the performers on stage, but the entire show experience. I’ve had more experience with concert photography than anything else.
