And I'll give you photographs to cherish for a lifetime.

 

My passion is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera.

My passion is to capture your personality on film.

My passion is to make you look spectacular. 

My job as a photographer is to capture the real you.

If you're soulful, I want the photos to look soulful. If you're flirty, I want the photos to look flirty. 

When I'm behind the camera, you'll enjoy the experience.

That's so important, I'll say it again.

When I'm behind the camera, you'll enjoy the experience.

And, yes, this applies to guys as well.

Can't tell you how many groomsmen have come up to me and genuinely thanked me for making the day fun. And for making the process painless.

70% of wedding photography is bland. 20% is just horrible. And 10% is very very good.

True artistry does exist in the wedding industry. Some of the work out there is simply magnificent.

Beautiful work keeps me motivated to produce my best, and stay one step ahead of the pack.

Recently a highly influential blog named me one of the top five wedding photographers in the New York/New Jersey/Pennsylvania region. 

I began shooting weddings as a hobby back in 1998.

In those days I was very shy. So anytime I was invited to a wedding as a guest, I'd bring along my $150 Canon AE-1, and quietly snap photos of the bride and groom.

It was a way to avoid making chit-chat with strangers, and pass the time.

Well, the strangest thing happened.

All of the brides said they preferred my photographs to those of the professionals they had hired. 

Looking back on it, I never thought my life would turn out this way.

I majored in Economics and Commerce in Australia, where I grew up.

After college, I became an advertising writer.

Shooting weddings was just something I dabbled with on the side.

Back in the 90s, wedding photography was considered a joke. 

But I never considered wedding photography a joke.

I always saw in it the potential for flair, creativity, style, and humor.

A generation later, the wedding industry has figured out what I've known (and practiced) all along.

Today I shoot 40-50 weddings per year, and am a frequent guest lecturer at the Art Institute of Philadelphia.

I love literature. I love history. I love travel.

I love the films of Terrence Malick and Stanley Kubrick, and the paintings of Andrew Wyeth and Vincent Van Gogh.

I am married to the love of my life, and we have four children.

Marriage and love and intimacy are the most important things in my life, and I think this comes across in my photography.

Ultimately, photography is about celebrating who you really are.

Are you ready for something way beyond the ordinary?

Let's tell your story with a sense of style. 

And a sense of humor.

 

P.S.

If you're wondering how I capture a single wedding, please see the galleries entitled ''Brittani & Bobby'' and ''Lauren & Frank'' and ''Sarah & Eric.''
