About Me

Born in The Bronx, I grew up in Monroe, NY. I spent my early years traversing through the streets of NYC. I now live in New Jersey; I visit the city often. I'm also a proud dad and husband; my son and I share the same birthday!

I studied Communication at the University at Buffalo; I discovered my love for photography & videography when I bought my first camera for a solo trip to Japan & China.

When I'm not taking pictures or filming, I love to travel the world, play video games, watch movies and anime, play basketball, and cuddle with my dog Mikey!

My purpose is to capture the smiles and essence of your event. Making my clients happy with my work is my top priority.

Since starting my photography and videography business in 2019, I have worked on 250+ projects and events; ranging from weddings, engagement shoots, family and maternity portraits etc. I am a fully insured and legitimate business registered in the state of New Jersey.

My goal is to show the beauty, grace, strength, and enthusiasm of people. I focus on non-models and place regular people in situations that highlight an aspect of who they are. I strive for a sense of integrity and fortitude in my work.

As your photographer and videographer, you will discover an individual who is willing to go that extra mile, spending the time necessary to give you the service that you deserve.

Second Photographer

My name is Crystal, I assist my husband Joel at wedding and events to ensure we cover all angles at your event. I am also a proud mom!

I am born and raised in New Jersey, I became interested in photography since I was a child.

Currently, I am studying Early Childhood Education at Montclair State University. My goal is to become a teacher in the future. I really love to work with kids, especially during birthday parties and general photoshoots.

When I am not taking pictures, I love to use my cricut for arts and crafts, drink coffee, watch movies, and cuddle with my dog, Mikey.
