After six years as a photojournalist and multimedia photographer for Sun-Times Media in Chicago and ten years as a Senior Associate for a large Chicago fine art wedding photography studio, I am pursuing my dream of opening my own wedding and portrait studio. I bring a blend of fine art and photojournalism to each wedding that I document. I passionately push the limits of my camera looking for unique ways to document the beauty and suspense that every wedding offers. Each and every wedding is an honor to document, an honor that I take very seriously. If you like authentic images informed by art please reach out and let's work together! When not photographing a wedding, engagement or portrait session, I'm in my Upstate New York home documenting the daily life of my husband, six-year-old son, and our cat Yehti and fitting in a yoga session, time in nature, or gardening whenever I can. I have a master's degree in environmental studies and my photographic work has been recognized by the National Press Photographers Association, Editor and Publisher, Women in Photojournalism, and the Illinois Press Photographers' Association, Press Association and Associated Press. Please get in touch and tell me all about you! Whether an intimate country elopement or a grand urban celebration, from start to finish, I want to hear all about it. [Schenectady Wedding Photographer]
I’m a wedding and elopement photographer based in the NYC and NJ metro area specializing in capturing real candid moments and making custom black and white prints. I love classic black tie weddings and equally love a simple affair at City Hall because both tell a story about a family and a couple embarking on a new adventure together. It is an honor to document these days and do all I can to make the day run as smooth as possible. My style is as unobtrusive as can be, save for the portrait session where I will try and make these as quick and painless as possible! I’m based in NJ just outside of NYC and photograph weddings all over the tri-state area and also destinations. [Hoboken Wedding Photographer]
Nostalgia drove me into photography at an early age - and lead me into my studies of photojournalism. We know when we're at a critical juncture in our lives. You may even outwardly acknowledge it. For me, being able to authentically capture, to preserve those moments in a photograph is such a privilege. I know how much it means to me to be able to look back and say 'this is how things actually happened.' There is beauty in those truths. The kind of folks I work with share that appreciation. I only take on a couple of weddings and elopements a month. To genuinely tell such an intimate story, I aim to be more than just another vendor at your wedding; I am fortunate enough to be able to book comfortably so that I can be sure the couples I am working with are getting the attention that every couple deserves. Additionally, it allows for me to have a notably expedited turn around time, all at a price that you'll likely find a lot more agreeable than what you're anticipating for a professional photographer. I'd love to hear your story up to now and to be able to tell a paramount piece of it in the future. Let's talk, get coffee or something. [Portland-ME Wedding Photographer]
As long as I can remember, I've been using cameras creatively. When I was in elementary school, my brother and I used the home video camera to make sketch videos, and as I grew older, the improvements in the video recording and playback world fascinated me. When I was 14 I took my first photography class. I went to an NHL game with 2 rolls of black and white film, and a Minolta my mom bought in 1976 and developing that film I fell in love with capturing a moment, a real moment. I transitioned into the video program and later enrolled in a trade school for video production and broadcast television. I went to film school at the University of Colorado, and after realizing I no longer dreamed of working on a major motion picture, I moved to Boston with a friend and moved on creatively. Years later, my wife encouraged me to pursue my passion one more time. Together, we built a company on family and event photography before jumping into weddings. We booked 25 weddings in our first year, and have fallen in love with engagement and wedding photography. I shoot as though I'm filming a scene. My "poses" are cinematic, shot in motion, candid, and as though the couple is walking through a scene. When I shoot a wedding, I prefer to blend into the sea of guests and take moody, candid photos when people have forgotten I am there. I developed most of my habits through cinematography, but I have been inspired and found new motivations in the entire wedding process, from Engagement shoot through the delivery of a final wedding gallery. We shoot anywhere from 25-35 weddings per year and enjoy doing engagement shoots for our wedding clients as well as clients not ready to book yet, but with a need for beautiful couples photos. [Boston Wedding Photographer]
I enjoy capturing the moments and emotion throughout your wedding day. My work has been described as "fun", "artistic", “unique”, “candid”, “emotional”, "spontaneous" and “story-telling”. My photography background has spanned numerous fields; from the commercial sector, to leading non-profit organizations, to the editorial desks at several large newspapers and publications. Through these experiences, I have crafted a unique style and have become highly adaptable to any situation. Simply put, I like to make nice images and have fun doing it. I am available for assignments worldwide [and love to travel]. [Providence Wedding Photographer]
My inspiration for photography is greatly influenced by literature, music, cinema and personal experiences. I try to approach my work as if it's a magical, timeless film, beautiful music composition, a memorable novel or a poem that one is constantly drawn to come back to and every time finds something new. My lifelong involvement with fine art and documentary photography lets me intimately capture the emotions, grace and light in all of the priceless moments of a wedding day, as well as the fleeting moments between those moments. I am also involved in curating film programs for several international festivals and constantly working on my personal film and photography projects. My preference is to take on limited amount of wedding commissions per year to enable myself to keep a fresh, open-minded approach and genuine excitement about every single one I select to photograph, providing my clients with undivided attention and creative energy they deserve. [Brooklyn Wedding Photographer]

My home is filled with photographs that tell very important stories of love & life. I often find myself looking at these photos and feeling so grateful to tell the stories of my clients through beautiful imagery. I have been documenting love stories for 13 years and adore my job. I love seeing the beauty in life’s special moments and turning it into art. I love the amazing energy of a wedding day and playing a special role in documenting forever memories.

Hi, I'm Katie. I live in East Greenwich, RI with my husband, son and two dogs. I am the owner and principal wedding photographer of Brave Hearts Photography. I've been in business for over 5 years and have photographed approximately 100 weddings. I first learned black and white film photography when I was in high school in Manchester, CT. I took a break from photography to attend Providence College and worked for 7 years in a corporate job in the financial industry. It was planning my own wedding in 2012 that brought me back to (digital) photography. I absolutely loved being able to relive the magic of my wedding day through photographs and it became clear that I could provide that same wonderful experience for others. After taking some refresher courses at the Silvermine Art Guild in New Canaan CT, and working as a second photographer, I jumped head first into wedding photography in January 2014. My documentary style organically evolved from my own experiences as a bride. The thing I loved most about my own wedding was having all of my friends and family in one room - and then finding out afterward about all of the shenanigans that went on! After the stress and tedium of planning my own wedding, I realized how important it is to be able to enjoy every moment of it. And to hire a photographer that doesn't pull you away, but captures all of those special moments! When I'm not working, I love traveling and doing landscape photography. I also love history, consider myself the family historian, and enjoy antiquing. [Providence Wedding Photographer]
Influenced by a background in photojournalism, I strive to not only make beautiful and creative photographs from your wedding, but photos that capture the real emotion, candid moments, and unique personality of your special day. After graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2006 with a degree in Photojournalism, I spent six years as a newspaper photojournalist in New York and Nebraska, before moving back to my home state of Vermont where my wife and I have been photographing wedding since 2012. My wife, Megan, and I photograph each wedding together as a team. We take a true documentary approach to photographing your Vermont wedding, with the hope that when you see your photos you’ll not only remember how it looked, but will feel all the energy and emotion of the day through the images. [Burlington Wedding Photographer]
Originally from Belarus – a small country between Poland and Russia – it was in 2006, and inspired by my own wedding, that I attended the Minsk School of Photography. Following two years intense study and two more years shadowing a renowned wedding photographer, I launched as a full-time professional wedding photographer in 2011. Since then I’ve notched-up extensive experience as a destination wedding photographer, shooting over 250 destination weddings in far away locations such as Italy, Switzerland, Motenegro, Thailand, Hungary, Czech Republic and Russia. We moved to the US in 2016. Located on Cape Cod, one of our favorite pastimes is exploring New England’s vivid landscape and sleepy coastal towns. As well as being ready to hop on a plane to shoot international weddings at a moment’s notice, I now cover engagements and weddings throughout Cape Cod, Boston and NYC, all New England and the surrounding area. [Boston Wedding Photographer]
After spending years photographing sports, Denis has developed a keen eye and intuition for capturing natural, emotional, and long lasting moments using a non-intrusive approach to wedding photography. [Manhattan Wedding Photographer]
My name is Yun Li. I was born in Wuhan, China. I came to the United States in 2008. I am a wife and a mom of two girls living in Long Island, NY. I take a lot of pictures for my own family especially my own kids. At the end of the day, pictures with authentic moments are always the ones that I look over and over again. I like to document their everyday life just as it is. They don’t have to force a smile or look at the camera. They just need to be who they really are and do what they want to do. I especially love documenting their interaction between each other and our connection to them. I want to be able to show them years later what they were like and how much they were loved at that time. As your photographer, I would like to take pictures of you and your family the same way that I take pictures for my family. I don’t only want to be your photographer, but also be your friend. [New York - Long Island Wedding Photographer]
I'm a second-generation wedding photographer, living out my dream of documenting community in the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire and photographing unique weddings around New England. As a teenager, I spent summers assisting my parents with photographing weddings, learning just as much how to run as business as how to be at the right place at the right time to capture unique moments. While working toward my degree in Photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology, I began photographing weddings on my own, eventually bringing along my now-husband, Jeff Porter, a fellow photojournalism student who shares my love of spontaneous adventure. We now live in the mountains of Vermont, where I run the photography business and freelance for local and national publications including the New York Times, Vox, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Seven Days Vermont, and The Valley News. In addition to The Valley News, I've worked as a photographer for The Erie Times News, CITY Newspaper of Rochester, NY, and The Patriot News in Harrisburg, PA. I've received awards from the National Press Photographers Association, The New England Press Association, The Vermont Press Association, and The New Hampshire Press Association. [Tunbridge Wedding Photographer]
I studied photography at the University of California - Santa Cruz and received a degree in art with a concentration in photography. In 2000 I moved to New York City and began an internship with portrait photographer Joyce Tenneson. Under her tutelage I began to develop my own personal portrait style, a blend of photojournalism and relaxed portraiture. I started photographing weddings and families in New York City in 2002. In 2007, I married Bob Moyers, and we've been shooting weddings together ever since. My background in fine art photography and Bob’s background in commercial photography blend seamlessly to produce a wholly unique interpretation of each wedding we photograph. Our approach to wedding photography is primarily photojournalistic with a touch of candid and relaxed portraiture. We focus on unobtrusively capturing the emotions, relationships, and special moments of each wedding as they happen naturally while special attention is placed on artistically documenting the many details that make each wedding unique. [Manhattan Wedding Photographer]

I started my career after I graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2011. I received my BFA in Photography and specifically worked on portraiture and interiors during my years in college. This obviously translated to my eventual career perfectly. Before I made the jump into being a full-time wedding photographer, I worked as a studio photographer for the furniture and antique gallery Carlton Hobbs, was an intern photographer for Brooklyn Museum, and was a gallery assistant at BRIC Contemporary Art, all the while pursuing my dream of getting my wedding photography business off the ground. It was a lot of work, but so worth it. Now, I am residing in the Hudson Valley, and split my time between the Hudson Valley and New York City. I have captured many different types of weddings all over the East Coast, and relish in the diversity I get to experience and document. I’ve photographed weddings on top of mountains, on the beach, in hotel rooms, and at some of the most glamorous venues you could imagine - it never gets old, and I love seeing the ways my clients make their day special. I am a firm believer in paying it forward, and donate a portion of my package price to charity. [New York City - Metro Wedding Photographer]
Hello, my name's Niki! I studied photography and art education at Montserrat College of art, and have been working professionally as a fine art, event, product, and portrait photographer since 2010. My experience as a staff photographer at MIT has informed my photojournalistic approach to event and wedding photography and continues to challenge me creatively with exciting new projects and adventures every day. Outside of my professional life, time spent exploring the coastal beauty of the North Shore has allowed me to stay connected with why I started photographing everything in my world in the first place: a deep love of story, found within the fleeting light and gorgeous color of the natural world. I believe that the most compelling moments are often found outside of the wedding day timeline and choreography. While it’s important to capture the big moments, to me, it's the little looks, the big hugs, and the spontaneous goofiness that really tell the story. I work in a style that's organic, unobtrusive, and artistic, and aim to capture every sweet detail, big and small. I live in beautiful Beverly, MA, with my husband Bryan, and our two fluffy and very spoiled cats. [Boston Wedding Photographer]

Hi Edward, You are great to work with. You captured really amazing moments throughout the wedding, and one of the best qualities of your work was your ability to use natural light to make everything look romantic and outstandingly beautiful. You always responded promptly to all emails and arrived early to the wedding; overall, very reliable, reasonable, and extremely talented!
Hi Ed, Choosing you as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The level of dedication and precision you exhibits when taking pictures is unparalleled. During our engagement shoot, you were upbeat and excited the whole day, even when we became tired (it's a long day!). You knew the best places to take pictures and exactly how to catch the light to make each shot perfect. As we were walking through Central Park, you would stop us randomly because you were ALWAYS looking for a great picture. You brings a lot of joy to your work, which is inspiring. Leading up to the wedding, You were incredibly professional and always made yourself available, whether for a venue walk-through or just a call to figure out details. We had two days of wedding events and you was so excited to be part of both - you was literally everywhere taking pictures and documenting our wedding weekend, but without us even noticing you being there. You were also full of great ideas for where to stand to get the best view of our venues. You also gives a lot - you doesn't care how long the day takes, you are there the entire time. Our wedding day was incredibly long, but you was happy and energetic all day long - you made our families smile and worked to get the best out of each of our family members. And when we received the pictures, we were blown away. They are all so incredibly beautiful. You really captured the best moments of our day without us looking posed. You took so many great shots, it's hard to choose which ones we want to include in our album. We are so grateful for your amazing services and will highly recommend you for any event. Your energy and sheer passion for your work was evident throughout our wedding. Thank you, Edward!!

Hi Edward, Having you as our wedding photographer was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day! You are not only professional, reliable, and prompt in your correspondence, you creates absolutely stunning photographic compositions. You captured the natural beauty of the moments on our special day. You artistically crafted the lighting and contrast to make each photo exude magic, in your unique style. You captured each shot that we desired. You will get the right angle AT ALL COSTS! And this means that he will jump, step, climb- even dash into the street… whatever you needs to do to get the right shot! All my wedding guests were captured in the shots, and this was quite a feat, considering how many people attended! Also, trust in your artistic vision, as you can make the most cluttered of backgrounds into something absolutely spectacular! You are so talented with your craft, and knowledgeable about your equipment and matches the photographic environment with the required lens and lighting. We were given quite a few preview photos a day or two after the wedding, and the rest of the shots came in a few weeks later. Overall, we were beyond satisfied to have you to photograph our wedding!
