Our aim is to make the viewer feel like they were really there! Documenting your story in an honest yet artistic way is most important to us. The end product is a beautiful heirloom album that tells your story, and is so perfectly and uniquely you! When your children look at your wedding photos they should be able to feel the vibe, the emotions, the beats on the dance floor. Each person’s story is different and inspiring to us.
Priyanca’s pictures from our wedding absolutely blew us away. Her gifts for observation and creativity make her unique. She has a knack for picking up on the little moments and relationships that make a wedding day so meaningful.

The small details
We focus on not just the big moments, but the tiniest moments that are usually dismissed. The way you apply mascara, your bother helping button your shirt and totally messing it up! The imperfections are as important.

Feel at ease

In two words ARTISTIC DOCUMENTARY. We love to photograph real moments that are unscripted and authentic to your story. Our photos are bold and creative. During the portrait sessions we do very little posing, we are not into props, rather we direct our clients to do activities or engage each other to create natural moments. We do take a handful of posed shots for your mom, because a wedding is about making everyone happy! We use light in a creative way in our photos so our work tend to be high contrast and moody. But in the end of the day what sets up apart from everyone else, is our storytelling ability to capture the in-between moments that makes your photos unique. We select your final photos based on our unique style.

What distinguishes your work from that of other photographers?
We are very involved right from the beginning to avoid any glitches on your wedding day. Our goal is to let you live in the moment on your big day, and let us capture the candid moments you will miss! We are very organized and communicative right from the start. We get you to fill out information sheets that will help us plan your wedding photography the way you envision it. Rest assured you will not have to micro manage on your big day, rather relax, talk to guests and look gorgeous in all your pictures.
Creativity is most important to us. We look for unusual angles, perspectives and compositions that will make your images pop. Our documentary style tells a visual story that marries the wedding venue with your personalities, be it a barn, the NYC skyline or colorful Brooklyn street art. We are the first ones to arrive at the wedding venue to scout out potential locations for pictures and prepare ahead of time.
We are all very laid back and humor is an integral part of our team. We know how to loosen you up to get those laughs and very natural looking pictures however camera shy you are.
What type of equipment do you use?
We use all Pro Fujifilm with prime lenses along with back up cameras. Our Pro lenses are very sharp and give a nice shallow depth of field that make your pictures look dreamy. We also carry professional lighting for indoor photography during the ceremony and reception.
Do you share all the raw files after an event?
No, because we can do better than raws! When you book us you are paying for our professional set of eyes that is trained to only pick the best of the best. You will receive a well rounded gallery with a nice range of shots that fits our style. If there is anything missing just let us know and we will try our best to help you find any particular shots. We no not share a selection gallery to choose from, our format is that we pick the photos for you that most tell your story in a natural way and fall in line with our photography style.
