For over 10 years, I’ve been providing couples with dedicated caring service as they’ve trusted me to document and capture one of the most important days in their lives. I’m honored that people invite me to be a part of their wedding day and that my photos will tell their story for years to come. I’ve always enjoyed working with and getting to know all sorts of different people – I loved meeting new people during my days as a newspaper photographer and wedding photography has allowed me that same joy. My business has always been firmly rooted in inclusivity and equality. So if you’re looking for an experienced New York/New Jersey photographer who will honor the uniqueness of you, your partnership, and your wedding—then look no further than Studio A Images.
