Rhode Island and Providence wedding and elopement photography by Kathryn Yeaton

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]

Nostalgia drove me into photography at an early age - and lead me into my studies of photojournalism. We know when we're at a critical juncture in our lives. You may even outwardly acknowledge it. For me, being able to authentically capture, to preserve those moments in a photograph is such a privilege. I know how much it means to me to be able to look back and say 'this is how things actually happened.' There is beauty in those truths. The kind of folks I work with share that appreciation. I only take on a couple of weddings and elopements a month. To genuinely tell such an intimate story, I aim to be more than just another vendor at your wedding; I am fortunate enough to be able to book comfortably so that I can be sure the couples I am working with are getting the attention that every couple deserves. Additionally, it allows for me to have a notably expedited turn around time, all at a price that you'll likely find a lot more agreeable than what you're anticipating for a professional photographer. I'd love to hear your story up to now and to be able to tell a paramount piece of it in the future. Let's talk, get coffee or something. [Portland-ME Wedding Photographer]

Boston wedding and elopement photography by Kevin Wright of the Massachusetts WPJA

I am one half of Atlas + Stone, a wedding photography duo passionate about candid, honest storytelling. 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 in 2009 and moved on creatively. Years later, married with kids and working in the restaurant industry, 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 have firmly settled into the wedding industry and have photographed over 170 couples in the Southern New England area. I shoot as though I'm filming a scene. My "poses" are cinematic, shot in motion, and honest. When I shoot a wedding, I prefer to blend into the event and capture things as they happen. I developed most of my habits through cinematography, but I have been inspired and found new motivations in the entire wedding process, from engagement through the delivery of a final wedding gallery.

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.

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.

Vermont documentary wedding and elopement photography by Josh Kuckens, of Burlington

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]

New York and Long Island wedding and elopement photography by Yun Li

My name is Yun Li. I was born in Wuhan, China. I came to the United States in 2008. I am a wife and a mom of two girls living in Long Island, NY. I take a lot of pictures for my own family especially my own kids. At the end of the day, pictures with authentic moments are always the ones that I look over and over again. I like to document their everyday life just as it is. They don’t have to force a smile or look at the camera. They just need to be who they really are and do what they want to do. I especially love documenting their interaction between each other and our connection to them. I want to be able to show them years later what they were like and how much they were loved at that time. As your photographer, I would like to take pictures of you and your family the same way that I take pictures for my family. I don’t only want to be your photographer, but also be your friend.

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.

My inspiration for photography is greatly influenced by literature, music, cinema and personal experiences. I try to approach my work as if it's a magical, timeless film, beautiful music composition, a memorable novel or a poem that one is constantly drawn to come back to and every time finds something new. My lifelong involvement with fine art and documentary photography lets me intimately capture the emotions, grace and light in all of the priceless moments of a wedding day, as well as the fleeting moments between those moments. I am also involved in curating film programs for several international festivals and constantly working on my personal film and photography projects. My preference is to take on limited amount of wedding commissions per year to enable myself to keep a fresh, open-minded approach and genuine excitement about every single one I select to photograph, providing my clients with undivided attention and creative energy they deserve.

I studied photography at the University of California - Santa Cruz and received a degree in art with a concentration in photography. In 2000 I moved to New York City and began an internship with portrait photographer Joyce Tenneson. Under her tutelage I began to develop my own personal portrait style, a blend of photojournalism and relaxed portraiture. I started photographing weddings and families in New York City in 2002. In 2007, I married Bob Moyers, and we've been shooting weddings together ever since. My background in fine art photography and Bob’s background in commercial photography blend seamlessly to produce a wholly unique interpretation of each wedding we photograph. Our approach to wedding photography is primarily photojournalistic with a touch of candid and relaxed portraiture. We focus on unobtrusively capturing the emotions, relationships, and special moments of each wedding as they happen naturally while special attention is placed on artistically documenting the many details that make each wedding unique.

Westchester County wedding photography by Chris Ware of Upstate New York

The evolution of wedding photography has seen the term wedding photojournalist become omnipresent in the industry, and a calling card for many photographers. If you take one thing from your time on our site, please note that while many may claim to have photo-journalistic training, few have practiced their craft in the field. Chris Ware is a tried and true photojournalist. A camera could be found in his hand as early as the age of 4. Before entering high school, Chris built his first darkroom with the help of his father who supported his passion for photography. This same passion accompanied him through his time in the Navy as a Photographer's mate, and on to the rigors of the Masters program in Photography at Syracuse University. Since 2003, Chris has worked in news media, steadily building his skillset and honing his craft. During that time, and through present day, Chris has also photographed weddings from small intimate affairs, to large, lavish extravaganzas. Chris Ware has dedicated a significant portion of his life to the pursuit of artistic excellence in photo and cinematography, so much so that he has been recognized for excellence in his field at the regional and national level. With accolades that include the prestigious Peabody Award for digital media as well as over 20 New York Emmy Awards for excellence in video journalism, a more skilled photographer for your wedding day cannot be found. It is with this same trained eye that Chris approaches your special day. Capturing genuine candid moments as they happen. Not demanding unnatural poses and forced smiles. The day promises instances of joy, capturing moments is where Chris Ware, a professional working photojournalist, far outpaces the average wedding photographer. CWP Weddings focuses on building rapport with you and those closest to you in the weeks and days leading up to your special day. Because we invest so much time, effort, and energy into each event, our award-winning team only photograph a small number of weddings a year, making each one unique. We respect that you are making a significant investment of trust and finances when selecting a wedding photographer, and as such we are also very selective in who we agree to work with. Our commitment to the highest level of professionalism and making sure each guest is beyond satisfied does have a cost, and that is found in the time constraints the CWP Team faces. If you are interested in working with CWP Weddings we ask that you reach out well in advance of your date, as our calendar tends to book quickly. Integrity is something we pride ourselves on, Wedding Photojournalist Association is an amazing resource for your wedding. Please take the time to look at WPJA while doing your research, even if our team is not the right fit for you. We want you to have all the information that is relevant to help you make the best decision possible. Wishing you all the best, and we look forward to hearing from you!

Newark wedding and elopement photography by Joey Curry of New Jersey

When I was 13 I was drawing a lot and dreamed of being an animator. I struggled with characters and ideas. My mom saw the need to create and handed me her Olympus OM 10. I was immediately hooked. Having a camera became like having my wallet...or pants. I needed it, It was part of getting dressed and going out. I am almost 40 now and I still feel the same way. For years I shot street photography and fine art stuff while I traveled and grew and developed my style. 6 years ago I met my now wife. She was pivotal in my transition to Wedding Photography. She pushed me to pursue it as a career, as a form of stability for my new, growing family. I now have over a hundred weddings under my belt, with tons of engagements, proposals, events, and portraiture to boot. My style comes from my artsy, street background (documentary/photojournalistic) and is mixed with my personality (fun, colorful, relaxed, personable) I love shooting people. I love shooting events. I REALLY love shooting weddings. There is nothing in the world like meeting strangers, getting the privilege and joy of being a part of something so special and meaningful, having the best time ever, and going from strangers to friends!

I love traveling, hiking, biking, and any other kind of adventure you can throw my way, I'm a foodie and pretty good around the kitchen, I'm a huge fan of the arts, from any genre of music, books, movies, and traditional art, a dog lover, and most of all I'm a romantic.

New York City wedding photography by Jenna Salvagin

I started my career after I graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2011. I received my BFA in Photography and specifically worked on portraiture and interiors during my years in college. This obviously translated to my eventual career perfectly. Before I made the jump into being a full-time wedding photographer, I worked as a studio photographer for the furniture and antique gallery Carlton Hobbs, was an intern photographer for Brooklyn Museum, and was a gallery assistant at BRIC Contemporary Art, all the while pursuing my dream of getting my wedding photography business off the ground. It was a lot of work, but so worth it. Now, I am residing in the Hudson Valley, and split my time between the Hudson Valley and New York City. I have captured many different types of weddings all over the East Coast, and relish in the diversity I get to experience and document. I’ve photographed weddings on top of mountains, on the beach, in hotel rooms, and at some of the most glamorous venues you could imagine - it never gets old, and I love seeing the ways my clients make their day special. I am a firm believer in paying it forward, and donate a portion of my package price to charity. [New York City - Metro Wedding Photographer]

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

Hi Edward, You are great to work with. You captured really amazing moments throughout the wedding, and one of the best qualities of your work was your ability to use natural light to make everything look romantic and outstandingly beautiful. You always responded promptly to all emails and arrived early to the wedding; overall, very reliable, reasonable, and extremely talented!

You were very responsive and flexible. Your eye and style are fantastic and you are very calm and collected. Since the day we booked over the phone long distance, you made us feel very confident and relaxed in choosing your service. We saw preview photos the very next day and we LOVE them. Your value is excellent and I highly recommend you to anyone. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos!

Hi Ed, Choosing you as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The level of dedication and precision you exhibits when taking pictures is unparalleled. During our engagement shoot, you were upbeat and excited the whole day, even when we became tired (it's a long day!). You knew the best places to take pictures and exactly how to catch the light to make each shot perfect. As we were walking through Central Park, you would stop us randomly because you were ALWAYS looking for a great picture. You brings a lot of joy to your work, which is inspiring. Leading up to the wedding, You were incredibly professional and always made yourself available, whether for a venue walk-through or just a call to figure out details. We had two days of wedding events and you was so excited to be part of both - you was literally everywhere taking pictures and documenting our wedding weekend, but without us even noticing you being there. You were also full of great ideas for where to stand to get the best view of our venues. You also gives a lot - you doesn't care how long the day takes, you are there the entire time. Our wedding day was incredibly long, but you was happy and energetic all day long - you made our families smile and worked to get the best out of each of our family members. And when we received the pictures, we were blown away. They are all so incredibly beautiful. You really captured the best moments of our day without us looking posed. You took so many great shots, it's hard to choose which ones we want to include in our album. We are so grateful for your amazing services and will highly recommend you for any event. Your energy and sheer passion for your work was evident throughout our wedding. Thank you, Edward!!

Our wedding photo experience with you was exceptional! You were very professional and creative. All of our photographs turned out more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. You were able to capture the feelings and the beauty of our very special day in every photo. You were a pleasure to work with and our wedding day turned out to be the most amazing day. Your relaxed and creative style allowed us to have a lot of fun and really be ourselves. Most of the time, we didn’t even know you were there taking our photo. The photographs are amazing and we had so many to choose from. You set out to capture the beauty and magic of our special day and succeeded beyond all of our expectations. You are a true professional and talented photographer. We can’t thank you enough for providing us with beautiful memories that will last a lifetime!
