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.

I may be a little bit geeky, and my wife describes me as an "infuriatingly positive person". I am smitten with rock climbing, science fiction, surfing, travel, and being invited into the inner circle of a family on a wedding day. I am one of the only wedding photographers in the world shooting entirely on the highest end camera system and lenses in the world, the Leica. I am a hopeless romantic and thrive on the intricacies of a wedding day. My own wedding was the most overwhelming (fun!) experience of my life, and I treat every celebration with that gravity. I will tell the story of your day with sensitivity, artfulness, and attention to every detail. I work in a photojournalistic, candid and unobtrusive style throughout the day (apart of when we are making portraits or family formals). [Boston Wedding Photographer]
Hello, I'm Katie! I was born and raised on the island of Nantucket, and for as long as I can remember I've been immersed in and inspired by the natural beauty of my home. I always had a camera in my hand when I was younger, chasing sunsets at the beach, out on my Dad's fishing boat and documenting my adventures with my friends in scrapbooks too numerous to count. I've had a passion for storytelling from an early age. A few years after college, I moved to Boston and enrolled in the New England School of Photography for their two-year professional program and studied photojournalism, wedding and portrait photography. After graduating I started my business on Nantucket. My goal and passion is to document the moments and experiences you’ll cherish forever. I am committed to capturing the human experience from the smallest elopement to the biggest wedding celebration, from everyday life to the family vacation celebrating 60 years of marriage for the grandparents. I also spend lots of time photographing stories and doing work for organizations that are near and dear to my heart; our local animal shelter and a recent project with an equine therapy center. I believe the best part of my job is that each wedding, project, portrait session or engagement is a new artistic endeavor with a story to be told. I live on Nantucket Island with my husband Evan and our rescue pup Ziggy and while I do a lot of work here, I am also happy to travel just about anywhere! I would love to hear more about your upcoming wedding, event or story that needs to be told. [Nantucket Wedding Photographer]
Knowing that a split second of time I capture with my camera can turn into an image cherished by generations. This is what excites me about being a wedding photographer and motivates me to continuously hone my skills and my vision. I love stunning natural light and pure, raw emotion. I love simple, clean compositions and bright, intense colors. I love shooting the big moments of the wedding day and the seemingly quieter ones – to me they are equally important and it is often when I look beyond the obvious that I am able to create the best pictures. I take an unobtrusive approach to my photography, allowing everything in front of my lens to happen naturally and my goal is to create images that tell the beautiful and unique story of your special event. I live in Somerville, Massachusetts with my wife and 2 children, am an award-winning member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), and have had my work featured in The Knot Boston and Gala Weddings. [Boston Wedding Photographer]
Photographer, sailor, ocean lover, pug person, Game of Thrones addict, enjoyer of raw oysters, New England patriots fan, drinker of iced coffee year round, ramblin’ wreck from Georgia Tech and a helluva engineer. Born and raised in the coastal New England town of Duxbury, Massachusetts, I photograph weddings in the Boston area as well as Palm Beach, Florida. [Boston Wedding Photographer]
My name is Nicole. I'm a Boston wedding photographer and I: can eat more chocolate than you can (Dark and milk. We all know that white doesn't really count), speak quickly (so keep up!) and live to travel, play board games and laugh 'till my cheeks hurt My style is a mix of creative documentary and stunning portraits. I believe that moments trump all - big moments, quiet moments, obnoxious moments and of course, little moments. I strive to create meaningful photographs. Above all, I believe that wedding photography should never be a cookie-cutter experience. [Boston Wedding Photographer]

[Boston 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]

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]
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]
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]
Here is a little bit about me, Denise Chastain. I sold my first photograph when I was fifteen years old to my music teacher. That same year, my first published photograph appeared in 16 magazine. Four years in high school I studied Photography. I went on to further develop my photography skills at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. After graduation, I pursued my freelance career, shooting an array of diverse assignments. My first big break was photographing the late great Ronnie Dawson, rockabilly hero, in 1996. The story was published in Option Magazine. Soon after, I photographed personalities such as Marc Anthony, Joan Jett, Missy Elliott, Nas, Ozzy Osbourne and former NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. During this time, the late Elyse Weissberg was at first my business consultant and soon after, she became my agent. We had a great friendship and working relationship. With her help and expertise, we branched out into the world of advertising, cultivating AT&T, Chase, North Point Communications, Janssen Products, LP, The United States Postal Service, Ogilvy and Mather NYC, Grey Advertising San Francisco and Foote Cone & Belding as both new and ongoing clients. In 2004, I was approached by NKH Enterprises to be part of their “New York Streets” Magazine Show (Japan’s version of ’60 Minutes’). It was a 20 minute segment about my photography and how I use NYC as a backdrop for my images. They had a hard time finding the right photographer to feature for this segment and it was a great honor to be part of the series. During most of my career, I photographed weddings as well. My client base grew from my connections in the editorial and commercial world. In 2006, I was invited to be a member of the great Wedding Photojournalism Association. [New York - Long Island Wedding Photographer]
I grew up in Long Island and central Connecticut before going to school for Photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology. There, I learned the value and application of narrative, documentary photography. I've since held photography positions at newspapers, high-end event companies, commercial outlets, and educational institutions. I employ these narrative skills in all of my work, but weddings are a natural fit. My goal is to tell the story of your day, as inconspicuously as possible. I find that weddings present some of the best opportunities for intimate, storytelling photography. in 2018 I became an Associate Photographer with Jacob & Megan Hannah of Hannah Photography in Lincoln, VT. When not shooting weddings, I work as a staff photographer at Vermont's Capital City newspaper, the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus. [Burlington 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]
My name is David Butler II and I work as a documentary style wedding photographer in Connecticut and Massachusetts. I specialize in photojournalistic wedding photography, portraiture, news and sports photography. My work has appeared in newspapers, magazines and websites around the world including Sports Illustrated Magazine & Web, ESPN The Magazine & Web, The Sporting News, USA Today, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, St. Petersburg Times, Hartford Courant and others. My work has also appeared on the walls of many wonderful clients who I thank so much for letting me into their world and giving me a front row seat to some of the most important and beautiful moments of their lives. [Hartford Wedding Photographer]
My decade of working as a documentary wedding photographer grows from a foundation of 2 decades formerly as a full time news photographer. That career saw the usual challenges, trajectory and accolades of a full time news photographer. Many major events were covered. It was also a time of working intimately with members of the local community, creating meaningful stories with the photos published in major newspapers and magazines, as well as in much smaller specialized and local level publications. There is a shelf with boxes full of awards, from small local civic organizations to major national news industry groups. It all makes up who I am as a photojournalist. And that is a person, who happens to be a photographer, who has the ability, interest and the desire to preserve and show the things that take place in daily life. Full time photography has been my life-long career path since graduating with a photojournalism degree from Syracuse University. Great life experience came from running a painting business with a friend while I was in college. That taught me to work hard. And how to relate to and really listen to people. Figure out what their needs were and understand how I could meet those needs as a way of earning my living. It wasn't about me selling or imposing myself on others. It was about understanding other people and what they needed and working to fulfill those needs. What a great way to bring home a paycheck. Photographers always speak of passion, their first camera, and the wonder of photography. Those aspects are the price of admission to being a photographer who works for other people, responsible for understanding and fulfilling the needs of their clients. I was addicted upon seeing the first print I ever made appear in the developer in the darkroom. This all sounds super serious. That's my internal drive talking, the one which compels me to do this as a full-time career. When we end up as a team you're going to get somebody fun and friendly who is thorough, who plans a lot, who enjoys weddings immensely, who loves being part of the wedding day where so much family history and family legacy is displayed through the relationships and the traditions. You're also going to get somebody who is affable and relaxed and will keep you having fun and relaxed. We’ll plan together before the wedding to learn about what's most important to you, or to help you tease out those little details if you haven't even thought about it. And “working” is a one track thing for me. I’m happy to photograph any size wedding from the smallest and most intimate you can imagine (try 9 people or an elopement), to a big and brash gathering. Because it means I get to “work”. The irregular schedule of working as a photographer gives me the opportunity to do a lot of fun personal stuff. When things get quiet you'll either find me out hiking or riding a couple of hundred miles a week on my bike. I'm an inveterate home improvement kind of person. I'd rather talk about a new angle grinder or table saw than the latest camera. Or share how I built that huge retaining wall. I'm never alone in my office thanks to our two rescue cats. Animal organizations are very important to myself and my wife and we contribute both financially and in volunteering to those organizations. [New York - Upstate Wedding Photographer]
With a love of documentary photography that touches everything I do, I have had the privilege of photographing hundred of weddings throughout New England since 1994. I approach my work with respect for the subject, gentle humor and letting events play out naturally in time. I began photography at 13 years old, growing up in South Dakota. After studying photojournalism at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, I have been a part of the Valley News in Lebanon, N.H., since 1989. I am now the photo editor in a newsroom full of talented and funny journalists. I have done photography for a dozen books, including The Joy of Keeping Chickens and Harvest: A Year in the Life of an Organic Farm. My photographs have also been exhibited throughout Vermont, including a one-person show at the Agency of Agriculture in Montpelier, Vermont. [Tunbridge Wedding Photographer]
Hey there! I’m Casey, photographer, designer & lover of nature. My most important roles are Momma to two beautiful little girls (Keira & Kyleigh) and wife to my hubby of 15 years. We live in Kittery, Maine, and enjoy spending our free time at our camp snowmobiling, hiking, kayaking, and enjoying time by the lake as a family. 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. My style is natural, timeless and it conjures up feelings of joy and beauty. I draw my inspiration from light, color, nature and most importantly you. I bring my experience, gentle guidance and thoughtful style to one of the most important days of your life. It is always a huge honor to see our amazing couples featured in some of the most accredited print publications & inspirational wedding blogs. I have been featured in magazines such as Real Maine Weddings, Seacoast Weddings Magazine, New Hampshire Bride, Click Magazine, Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy Magazine, The Green Parent Magazine & DYI Magazine and numerous inspirational blogs including Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Wedding Boston, Cake & Lace, Beyond the Wanderlust, Something Turquoise, Love & Lavender and many more. If you feel a connection with my images I’d love to chat and learn more about you. [Maine Wedding Photographer]
When I was a young girl growing up in Lithuania, I fell in love with everything about weddings. I got caught up in the joy, beauty, and emotion, and the sweet connections that happened between family and friends always made me smile. I still feel that way today. Now I am living my dream as a wedding photographer in Washington D.C., and traveling for destination weddings nationally and abroad. I am known for my documentary style which keeps me focused on candid moments and true emotions. It’s those kinds of story-telling wedding photos that you will see throughout my portfolio. When you trust me to be your wedding photographer, I want my photos to speak to you about your life, (not just make you look amazing). Of course, I’ll capture gorgeous portraits, group shots, and details to fill in your collection, and I’ll do it all without controlling the flow of your celebration. When you look at your photo years from now I want you to feel the emotions you felt on your wedding day, just like it was yesterday, and remember how comfortable you felt in front of the camera. If you find yourself drawn to my work, please reach out. I would love to know what captures your heart and makes you smile, and if our calendars align I would be thrilled to be your wedding photographer. All the best, Gabriele Stonyte [Arlington Wedding Photographer]
I was raised in North Carolina, went up north to Boston College to study Studio Art, lived abroad in Florence, Italy, moved to Washington, DC, and now I have been splitting my time on both coasts between Los Angeles and Greensboro, NC. I truly love what I do. It is as much a lifestyle as it is a calling - and I am humbled by the recognition I have received within my industry. In college, I was featured in National Geographic for a photojournalism piece focusing on Americans in the rural Blue Ridge Mountains. For the past 10 years, photography has been my life, my passion, and an ever-changing, creative source of self-expression. By incorporating both love and art, it is an extreme honor to capture the big moments in people's lives. Weddings are the culmination of a love story and a start to a new adventure. What I love most about weddings is I often get to see a couple grow from engagement to marriage to starting a family. To maintain quality work and excellent client relationships, I only book up to 15 weddings a year (both local and international). The other work I get to delve into (mostly in LA) is documenting branding and decor for Hollywood studios and other companies. On those very special days off, I adore spending time with my husband, our new baby boy Julian, and our rescue Shepherd, Zoe. I am very passionate about animal welfare and spend a dedicated amount of time photographing shelter animals and helping place them in forever homes. [Los Angeles Wedding Photographer]
