Special Moments

My primary approach is photojournalistic. My passion lies in documenting your activities with little interference to capture those special moments that tell the story of your day by showing the activities, interactions and emotions taking place among the people involved.
 
I strive to capture the natural smiles, laughs, hugs and tears that can't be captured in posed pictures. And I work to do it in a way that not only depicts the activities but also reveals the atmosphere and emotions felt throughout the day so you'll be able to relive your wedding for years to come in your photos.
 
Of course, I also photograph the family groups, bridal party and the bride and groom in a bit more traditional portrait style. Then, if you're willing, I like to photograph the bride and groom, and even the whole wedding party, in a less-than-traditional, fun session.
 
I studied photography at Germain School of Photography in New York City, was a staff photographer for the Ledger-Enquirer Newspapers in Columbus, Georgia, and the chief photographer for Southern Tier Sports World magazine in Binghamton, New York. My photos have been published in Kodak and Audubon calendars, National Wildlife and Newsweek magazines and in a number of publications around the world. 
 
I am centrally located between Binghamton, Ithaca, Elmira and Cortland in upstate New York in Newark Valley, which is just north of Owego.
 
I hope to hear from you soon.
