Welcome to the site! Thank you for looking to learn a bit more about me and my photography. We are based out of Canton, Connecticut. While we do have experience in many different fields of photography, we specialize in Weddings and Engagements. As a company we primarily work as a husband and wife team, but we do have other second photographers as well!
Who are we? We are happy little family of 6 (two amazing boys and two incredible girls). We are based out of Canton, Connecticut. My photography career began many moons ago when I was working in the film and television industry. It started as photographing interesting things I saw while working on tv shows from NBC and Warner Brothers. It quickly evolved into taking photos of sets and evolved from there. It wasn’t until 2011 when a family friend needed a photographer for their last minute wedding, that I discovered what I was meant to do. From that wedding, I knew there was no place I would rather be than celebrating couples in love! In 2016 my amazing wife joined the ranks and began second shooting, but our last child put that career on hold for a few years until 2020 when she finally rejoined full time!
In 2020 the covid pandemic hit our industry hard, and at that time, I had the opportunity to become the c0-founder of Aftershoot. An ai based company to help photographers sort and edit images with more speed! Through this, I began teaching and joining the photographer conference space. Now you will find me photographing weddings, teaching other photographers, and helping photographers find the speediest workflows for their photography!
One of the biggest questions we get before meeting anyone, is what makes us different? Besides amazing photography, we focus on making sure you have fun on your wedding day. It is important to get great photos, but it is equally important to enjoy your wedding and have fun. We are known to bust a move on the dance floor and have fun!
We shoot in a modern traditional style. Meaning, the images we create are meant to endure for a 100 years stylistically. They hold the creativity and uniqueness of images today, particularly with my use of lighting, but the final edits are designed to reflect a longer standard of photography. With current editing trends we just do not know the longevity. It is a very exciting time to be alive as we can tweak and adjust looks of our images to any degree we want, instead of having to choose a particular film stock to get a certain look. With that being said though, its also important to remember that styles and trends come in and out, and my images are intended to never go out of style. Much of this also comes from the actual shoot as well. When shooting and posing, we like to position my couples in the best lighting and scenery, then encourage them to interact, and laugh at our corny jokes till they are busting at the seams. So there is a hint of candid mixed into a very traditional posed photography style. With the combination of all those styles, we get very natural, realistic, and beautiful photographs. This allows us to photograph your best sides and angles while still getting those great natural smiles and laughs! We also love lighting. Having studied lighting, one of my favorite things to do is photograph couples in the dark as I have a blank canvas at any location. This lighting knowledge has been one of the major things to differentiate us from so many other businesses. It is a unique way to add to the many images we deliver on a wedding day!
