I am also blessed to say that my passion in life is my career. I am a documentary photographer based in New York covering weddings in the tri-state area, nationwide, and around the world. I am honored to be a part of the Wedding Photojournalist Association as a Top 10 Contest Winner. I have had my work published in local and national newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal.

We wanted to thank you for being part of our important day! We love the engagement and wedding photos and have not stopped telling our friends how lucky we were to have found you. You truly have a natural talent and passion for what you do, and it comes out in your work. It really meant a lot to us that you went above and beyond...when we were too busy and overwhelmed with wedding details to research our first meeting spot, you not only found the perfect one but orchestrated those moments perfectly. It was fun to hang out with you! We were a bit anxious about having our own "personal paparazzi," but you made us feel completely comfortable the entire day. Thanks again. We are so proud of our photos and look forward to sharing them with our friends, family, and future family for years to come!

Even before we started the search for wedding photographers, I knew that the one we picked would have to be special. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted our photos to look like. After looking through tons of portfolios, I thought that it was going to be a hopeless search. Either the pictures looked too staged or they looked slightly unnatural. But when I found your website, I knew immediately that we had to have you as our photographer. Through our long email exchanges and meetings over coffee, you were nothing but professional, warm, and comforting. Your huge smile made all of my nervousness disappear and honestly on the day of, I didn't even know you were there half the time. I am absolutely in love with our pictures and the way they turned out. You have such a unique talent for finding the "right" moments and for capturing the personalities of each of the individuals in your photographs. Photographers become a part of your wedding and I could not think of any other person I would have wanted to share my day with than you! Thank you Minnow!

Asking you to be our wedding photographer was one of the best, and easiest decisions we made during all the craze of wedding planning. We hired you because of your photojournalism style and the way you're able to capture all of those quirky, fun and touching moments that only a skilled photographer can. But as much as we knew how talented you were, we were still so incredibly delighted when we saw our gallery of photos. From our engagement shoot to the wedding day itself, you were at all the right places, witnessing all the right moments. And probably the best part of hiring you was working with you. Somehow you wrangled all of our family members and our more than 200 guests for group photos with complete ease, leaving us with nothing to worry about. You were just a great person to have around during one of the most significant days of our lives. We can't say enough about you to our friends. Thanks again, Minnow. You fricken' rock!!

When my fiancee and I began our search for a photographer for our upcoming wedding, we were disappointed by the static, posed, and very intrusive shots so common to many weddings. Instead, we really wanted our photos to reflect the energy and magic of the day. You brought a photojournalistic attitude to the work, capturing the event as it actually happened and framing it with beautiful, considered composition. Your work with natural light allowed you to glide through the setting without the cumbersome light packs and assistants we see getting in the way of the guests at many weddings. You were in all places at once, never missing an opportunity, but never underfoot. In fact, many of our guests couldn't recall someone being there taking the shots they were the stars of. In the end you delivered a set of photos that come from the perspective of the Bride, the wedding party, the guests and an outside observer as though they were the same person. We were very impressed with the results. Thank you!
