Why do I photograph weddings? I started my career as a magazine and advertising photographer. My wedding business grew from my commercial client list. Art directors and editors were looking for charismatic images of their wedding day. It was important they had a photographer they felt comfortable with and who would deliver inspiring images. There is an intense amount of planning and production that goes into a wedding, similar to the coordination of a commercial shoot. I find photographing your wedding day to be a great honor and incredibly gratifying.
On a more personal note, I do feel like matching up the right photographer with a great couple is a lot like dating. So in the spirit of the dating game, I love to travel, (I was just in Egypt), artisanal dark chocolate, making my own clothes, roller coasters, gardening, cooking, Halloween, live shows, discovering forgotten treasures in my travels, spontaneous adventures and of course taking photos! I would love to hear all about your wedding day plans. Call 516.823.7315 or E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org . You’ll be too busy having fun to know we were even there! E-Mail Me Today. I want to learn all about your wedding day plans.
We LOVED working with Modern Wedding Photography! From our first call with Denise, we could tell she was fantastic and we were very excited to work with her. She is enthusiastic, organized, so talented, and really took the time to get a feel for what kind of photography we wanted at our wedding. She was also extremely helpful in guiding us on the timing of the day, and how the photos would fit in with the other elements of the wedding. Also, something that we didn’t realize before getting engaged - the photographer spends a lot of time with the bride and groom, so it’s really important to hire someone that you get a good feeling for. Denise and her assistant are both so much fun, lovely, accommodating, creative, and did a great job blending right in with all the activity happening that day. Plus, the photos are AMAZING!!! We got a sneak peak right after the wedding, saw the full gallery quickly after that, and are now selecting our favorites for the albums - you really don’t have to wait long at all. Our family and friends agree with us that Modern Wedding did an absolutely fabulous job, and we’re so glad we found them. We’re so grateful to Denise and her team for helping to create such a beautiful lasting memory for us and our guests! Thank you Modern Wedding Photography! - Alexis and Dan
