We are award-winning (pat selves on backs) Brooklyn wedding photographers who feel that your wedding photos shouldn't look or feel staged. The way for us to achieve this is by not asking you to do cheesy things like dramatically posing in a spiraling staircase and telling you to kiss with the veil placed over both your heads.... please no.
What we are there for is to capture the real feels with the creative freedom to do what we do. All you need to do is get on with your wedding and sip champagne while we take care of documenting your memories, including the fuzzy ones, and everyone else's memories too.
We are here to be a source of calm with cameras on your wedding day and to make you feel at ease. This is why we gift a portrait session before your wedding. Don't you dare think of it as a cliche "engagement shoot" walking over the Brooklyn Bridge holding hands and holding balloons because.. really? We like shoot in your home because its the real-real and do a lap around your hood for an hour or so. Break the ice, get to know you two, take some snaps and get past the awkward camera in your face feeling. This time with you creates what you see in our work. Comfort and ease that comes naturally.
As artists, and as photographers, we genuinely want to feel connected with who and what we create. Emotion drives our work, so give us your willingness to be photographed, and we will give you our best.
