Kristy May photographs both New York and New Jersey weddings.

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]

I’m honored that people invite me to be a part of their wedding day and that my photos will tell their story for years to come. I’ve always enjoyed working with and getting to know all sorts of different people – I loved meeting new people during my days as a newspaper photographer and wedding photography has allowed me that same joy. My business has always been firmly rooted in inclusivity and equality. So if you’re looking for an experienced New York/New Jersey photographer who will honor the uniqueness of you, your partnership, and your wedding—then look no further than Studio A Images.

New Jersey wedding and elopement photographer JD Land

Hi! I'm a wedding photographer living in Southern New Jersey and covering the greater Philadelphia area as well as all of New Jersey. I've been photographing weddings professionally since 2012. While photography has always been a passion of mine, I didn't start photographing weddings until I realized just how posey and fake most weddings were when it came to photography! I decided then that I would start photographing weddings as a storyteller and photojournalist. Capturing real moments and the true essence of the day for my couples. Things took off from there and now here I am! I am also an avid wildlife photographer. I think that wildlife and weddings are very similar to me in that you get an addictive rush when you are able to capture the perfect moment. A moment where a single photograph can tell an entire story. There is nothing else like that and I will never tire of waiting endlessly to capture those moments! [New Jersey Wedding Photographer]

But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
